Any thoughts on that?

Umair, the CD set was built with the Mandrake official ISOs. The images were compared with the MD5 checksum on the Mandrake site.
The CD set for Redhat 8 went through the same process, plus the installer itself lets you do a check on it.

Both are 100% free software in the sense that you are free to give copies to your peers. Individual software within the distros are obviously governed by their own licenses, but they are all freely redistributable.

The only very minor hitch that might be of interest is that Redhat reflected the idea once that CDs that have not been burned by Redhat itself should not be called Redhat Linux even though they contain Redhat's software because it might give the end user the idea that Redhat supports that CD, which it obviously doesn't (it supports the boxed sets, or if you buy support seperately).

Good! now that you have brought up this subject What should be the next release of Red Hat in Pakistan be called ? We should agree to a standard naming convention viz LinuxPakistan Red Hat x.x or LinuxPakistan Mandrake x.x , LinuxPakistan Knoppix etc.

This is relevent now as we are making available most if not all distros and people would be exposed to these names for the first time. We might as well do the right thing from start.

Please shall we move this to a new thread? If you do then quote this in full and post your comments so that full context is present with in that thread.

Mandrake 9.0 tested.

Postby javedlodhi » Sat Apr 26, 2003 11:53 am

I tested the final release of Mandrake 9.0 No wonder it is as wonderful as expected that comes with every utlilty that you can think of, but I for some reason didn't find it very attractive as compared to RH 8. I heard that RH 9 was soon to be released and I am more anxiously waiting for that to be much better. Personally! I would suggest that if you are a working professional, go for SuSe or RH.
But as a whole, Mandrake 9.0 is awesome if you are to use it personally. Must give it a try,so that you can feel the need, the need for processing speed. Gear up and get your copy now! :wink: :arrow:

what about Mandrake 9.1

Postby kadnan » Sat May 31, 2003 9:22 pm

i just learnt the lesson then that "Always visit LP site first or contact tariq saab before buying any Open source related CD" (see my other thread 'redhat Cd corruption') <:

-i called mr Amir this evening and asked him about mandrake 9.1 he told em that I should have wait for 2/3 weeks,i think contacting amir saab or emailing @pakban is same.. nah??

Mandrake 9.1

Postby mahin » Sun Jun 01, 2003 7:12 pm

My appologies for delay in release of Mandrake 9.1 as I am not in Karachi [ have to work for living :) ] but if any one needs urgently can contact cd@linux.net.pk and we will find a way to help.

We are still working on putting up a proper on-line store and provide info through PLUC wiki. Please always check PLUC wiki to see what we have before you download and if you do download do share with others :) by sending a message to cd@linux.net.pk

Win Linux PLUC did not released.

Demo Linux was released by another distributor [ who does not wants to reveal their identity for their own reasons ] based upon PLUC CDR. We received them direct from INRIA - France.

You can verify if any thing is released by PLUC or not by simply checking our software link. Any pressed CD based upon source material provided by PLUC is also offered as CDR. Though no point in having them as Pressed CD's are cheap and convinient and are identical. Hope this helps!

farhanksa,
It means that all CDs released by Mr. Tariq's people are listed on the 'Get Software' page at the linuxpakistan website. They are putting special numbers on each CD package they put out that you can use to see if the CD is distributed by them or some other org.

Salam Alaikum

I wish I was in Pakistan to get hand to this CD.

(By the way, which Urdu Font is it using? As far as I knew, only "ClearlyU" font was compatible for Urdu (and that also got problems to show "Noon Ghunna".

Secondly, if Urdu keyboard is also available in this version???

=================

One strange thing was this that Knoppix Web browser showed Urdu Webpages corretly (like BBC Urdu Section).

I want to know if this version can also show Urdu WEbpages without any problem?????

Was Salam.
