great work

Postby Ovais » Mon Nov 25, 2002 1:44 am

salam,

thats a great work. but alas, i just downloaded the two cd's myself. is there anything special in this relaese, or just the 2/3 cds avaiable on the net?

also, i have abother idea for the promotion of linuz in pakistan. as a lot of you already know that there exists certain linux distros that can be run directly from cd's, i am downloading two named DemoLinux, and VirtualLinux myself.

if we can get cd of this kinda distro made and placed just like the mandrake one, many novice computer users will be able to try and see for themselves the benifits of linux. here is a list of such distros:

what do you people say?

Salaam!

Depends, if that works for you then great! IMHO it is better to have more available on CD just in case :)

Thanks for suggestion we have received originals [ Demo Linux ] from INRIA and are in process of deciding which one to choose first Demo Linux or Knoppix 3.1. Any comments ?

Do you have VirtualLinux ? Any comments ?

Thanks for your input.

I rechecked and was informed that one has to visit not ask on phone.

Would it be possible for you to send some one to vist the shop and ask for it ? At least they can guide who has it now. I am sorry for the hassel:(

May I request again for new names [ in any city ] and addresses of shop keepers willing to stock Linux / OpenSource CD's. Please send all such info to cd@pakban.net

In theory it may have been possible before but now may be some Brave soul may had tried and succedded :) In short if you have extra time at your hands do inform us. perhaps you could undertake some project for PLUC :). BTW do try [ on some spare machine - with out which you could live :) ]to find out if it works then post here for knowledge of all. Have fun:)

Here's what I did for the transition from Redhat 8 to MDK 9:
    1. Backed up /etc, /home,/usr/local,/var (only important parts of it) on a CD.
    2. Installed MDK from scratch. During install, I formatted the root partition, keeping the /home partition intact (barey loag recommend keeping all the filesystems on seperate partitions. Being lazy, I only have seperate partitions for swap, /boot, /home, and /.
    3. Restored stuff from the CD as I needed it. I started out by setting up Postfix and PostgreSQL. PostgreSQL worked out of the box from the restore. Had to change 1 line in main.cf for Postfix due to the difference in the binary directories between Redhat and Mandrake.

I was just wondering that KC comes out with all the pirated CD's(common in pakistan); so i presume that this CD would also be pirated, as in not endorsed by Mandrake.

Any thoughts on that?

As far Mandrake is concerned there are no issues, you may use it with full confidence.
