    I'd suggest you run it on Debian personally.

    Kingswood: Yes, apparently on Kubuntu - you need KDE.

    Thanks for the quick reply!

    Sounds OK- pitty it doesn't work with GNOME though. OK. Will give Kubuntu a go then at the weekend and see what Karoshi is like. Isn't it an integrated network services solution (AD, Proxy blah blah)? Sounds worth looking at...

    I've only ever tried it on Debian. However X/K/Ubuntu are close relatives of Debian so it's worth a shot.

    Yep, it is. Have a look around the Wiki to get a feel of the various server roles.

    Re: Karoshi on Fedora Core 5

    Phew...I made it...lol...sorry I'm late...

    It doesn't work on fedora at the moment but we are currently working on that along with Suse. Again at the moment when it does work it will be KDE only but we are working on that too.

    So supported at the moment: Debian, Kubuntu, Mandriva
    Working on: Suse, Fedora and Kanotix

    You don't get anything when you are clicking on the icon, as it is KDE specific.

    Let us know how you get on or if you have any problems.

    Jo

    What bit of kde does it depend on? Qt? Kdelibs? dcop? Might be able to hack it a bit to run on gnome

    well we run one linux thing and irony is that is rm product basically smartcache is Dans Guardian on red hat with some custom modules and coding on rm’s part...

    Basically costs involved it probably be cheaper to move away but got to make sure is going to be long term before we go any further.

    Basicly will be looking this sumemr to do get something built and then trail it and see how well it works to look to slowly reduce it over next 12 months so come next April we can if we wish ditch smartcache and move over.

    Re: Karoshi on Fedora Core 5

    That would be cool ico2 (esp from someone who has a Moss avantar!!!)
    If you download the iso for 5.0.2 (found in the beta section) it is the 'setup karosh' icon, which is the first thing on see on the CD, and the icon that opens up the dialog on the desktop to do the managing. It's not totally embedded but I haven't found a way to stop it. For example if you just right-click on the setup karoshi icon and open it up in for example kwrite, you can see what I mean. I have posted it below so you can see.

    Code:
    [Desktop Entry]
    Comment=
    Comment[en_GB]=
    Encoding=UTF-8
    Exec='/root/serversetup/serverselection'
    GenericName=
    GenericName[en_GB]=
    Icon=/root/serversetup/essentials/smalllogo.xpm
    MimeType=
    Name=
    Name[en_GB]=
    Path=
    StartupNotify=true
    Terminal=false
    TerminalOptions=
    Type=Application
    X-DCOP-ServiceType=
    X-KDE-SubstituteUID=false
    X-KDE-Username=
    It could just be me not having great gnome knowledge, if you can a look and give me some pointers I would be grateful. Everything else about Karoshi is Xdialog which is distro/window manager independent so basically as soon as we crack this one, I think there will be a lot more people interested in using it.

    Thanks,

    Jo

    Re: Karoshi on Fedora Core 5

    If I create an icon on my fedora box under gnome I get:

    Code:
    [Desktop Entry]
    Encoding=UTF-8
    Version=1.0
    Type=Application
    Exec='/root/serversetup/serverselection'
    TryExec=
    X-GNOME-DocPath=
    Terminal=false
    Name[en_US]=Setup Servers - Gnome
    GenericName[en_US]=
    Comment[en_US]=

    Re: Karoshi on Fedora Core 5

    Jo, would it not be feasable to get rid of the GUI requirement altogether (optional)? Perhaps implement console-based menus or a webmin module. Obvious benefits are memory usage not running X and also remote management without VNC.

    But knowing you, you're probably working on this already
