LINUX, the fastest growing Operating Systems for 3 years across the

wonder that IBM, DELL, HP/COMPAQ, SUN, HCL and others have announced
LINUX based Computers and more are in the process of doing do.
KALCULATE fills-in a very important gap, that of an important
application missing in the bunch of software that a normal user (be it
home, office, traders, business, professionals, industry & others)
requires. Users normally need an Operating system, Office Suite,
Internet-software, Audio-video-graphics software, Games and Accounting

I have a "Pinnacle PCTV Plus" tv tuner card. I have to pass "card=39"
to the bttv module to get it working. The video and the audio work
perfectly, but I am not able to change the channels. The "CARDLIST"
file in the documentation of linux-2.4.7-10 source doesn't list this
card to be supported (I use RHL7.2). But this source is pretty old
now. Has anyone tried with the newest bttv driver or has anyone
successfully configured this card in some other way? The Pinnacle
website says that the "PCTV Plus" is an "Indian Edition" of the card.

For starters, why don't you try hacking Anaconda or just base your distro on the minimal distribution of Debian. Once you know hoe the stuff works, you could start right from scratch. Beleive me, using Anaconda or the minimal distribution to build your own distro is just as exciting.

Subject: [ILUG-BOM] How to make a distro?
I am currently in the process of building a custom
GNU/Linux system for myself using 'Linux From
Scratch' as a reference. How do I make a
distribution of my own, complete with a custom
installation script. Can anyone suggest some
literature which I could download.
Since I'm taking the pains/pleasure to select the
right mix of packages for myself I might as well
distribute it to others who want the same mix of

The Information Technology association, an association of students,
faculty and staff of KReSIT had organised a two-day workshop on
GNU/Linux on the 26th and 27th of October. The venue was the impressive
The publicity campaign was mainly concentrated inside the IIT campus. In
the week before the workshop, posters had been sent to various colleges
in Mumbai. The registrations which had been sluggish (and had got quite
a few of us worried) picked up in the last 3 days. More than 100
participants had to be turned down.
After about 3 weeks of hectic preparations, the big day arrived. The
start couldn't have been better. Dr. Nagarjuna gave a fantastic talk on
Free Software and the history of GNU/Linux. This was followed by
sessions on installation, GUI, command-line and shell programming and
programming environment conducted by students at KReSIT. All the slides
were created in latex and presented using the pdfscreen package ;-)
The entire workshop was recorded and transmitted live to remote centers
of the Distance Education Programme being conducted at KReSIT.
Enthusiatic people who had turned up on that day were allowed to sit in
the local "remote" classroom at KReSIT and watch the proceedings.
At the end of the day, a 2 hour lab session was arranged for all the
participants. (That's about 200 people - 2 per computer). Accounts for
all the participants were created on a single machine (A Compaq ML 530
running Red Hat 7.3). Initially, there were logging-in delays as all the
people started their sessions almost simultanueously. This smoothened
out after a few minutes and the "exercises" began in earnest. Almost the
entire student population of KReSIT had volunteered for the lab
management (held at 6 different rooms in the KReSIT building).
The second day started with a superb talk on networking and security by
Prof. Siva Kumar, head of the Compute Center at IIT Bombay. He showed
live examples from the setup at the IIT firewalls. This was followed by
various sessions on system adminstration, LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL,
PHP), mail, DNS etc.
After this an open QA session ensued where various doubts were cleared.
The proceedings in the auditorium were concluded by an inspiring talk by
Dr. D.B. Phatak, head of KReSIT. Day 2 lab sessions were held at the end
of the day.
An important learning:
We felt that it might have made more sense to organise a workshop only
for beginners. (a seperate one for experienced people). Because, all
thru the 2 days, questions on installations, partitioning, X server
problems, Windows interoperability etc continued. It was a mistake on
our part to attempt to teach such a broad spectrum - from initiation to
services management in just 2 days.
Anyway, looking at the fantastic response we got (inspite of the
moderately high fees), the Linux scene looks encouraging.
Attended the Intel Developer Forum today at Taj
regent..quite a good show with the Intel CTO Pat Gelsinger
There were demos on the wireless network(802.11b) front,
and a good talk and demo on the Hyper-threading feature of
the Itanium processors.
Do chk out something called "Banias" - its cool!
There were some talks on best practices for using
Got to know about OpenMP amd MPI - two API's for enabling
ur apps to use clustered systems.
Also some tools for perf-tuning and analyzing ur
I've got a demo cd of those, i'll see if i can out it up on
my ftp server.

there was also a small demo of the VxWorks RTOS on a Intel
well..just thought some of you might want to know!
