    Karoshi 5.1.1

    Decided to be a bit cheeky and post about this release 8)

    Karoshi use to be a Linux replacement for RM, so basically it would sit ontop a Linux box and would allow you to do things like proxy servers, file servers etc with out touching a single text editor or console!

    Well now with the new version it's even easier, as we have moved it to become its very own OS.

    Anyway, its very stable, we have quite a few schools using it, one in Africa has won Star Letter in next months Linux Format, about us.

    But I do need more testers, all I need you to do is download it, get a spare box, our lowest spec was a P3, and play around, then give us an email or better still post on our forum for any changes we can do, to make it easier, simplier or just plain better. I suggest testing the single server setup, as that requires only one box but has all the features!!

    Website: www.karoshi.org.uk

    Anyway, better be off, got a lot of documentation to write!!

    Re: Karoshi 5.1.1

    Thanks, We had this problem with someone else and it was to do with Zone Alarm, as soon as they un-installed it, it downloaded fine, same error message and everything. I have tested several different sources from work and home, and haven't been able to recreate the problem, but I will try and work out why it is doing it. It maybe that it hasn't gone from the main sourceforge server out correctly or something like that.

    Could others try and download it for me even if you arn't going to test it as I would like to narrow down where this problem is coming from.

    Thanks,

    Jo

    Ok. Wgetting it from the Kent mirror at the moment and it reports the length as 490,387,456 if that's any help.

    EDIT: mount command didn't complain and it contains /boot, /isolinux and /livecd.sqfs

    Re: Karoshi 5.1.1

    I have uploaded the checksum, but sourceforge uploads every 30 minutes.
    I also think we have narrowed down the source to Internet Explorer not liking the way sourceforge does it's downloading but I could be wrong.

    Re: Karoshi 5.1.1

    Thanks for all the emails, it looks like so far it is a IE problem I will email sourceforge and see what they say.

    If others would be kind enough to test this system on a spare machine I would be grateful, really need to know any major changes that are needed to be made


    Thanks,

    Jo
