Don't know where this subject line is inherited from, the discussion
seems to have strayed way off. Anyway, since this is my first post on
this forum, I will refrain from tampering with it.

Don't know about 'experts', but for ordinary folk like me, many of us
have to deal with clients who work with proprietary software and
sometimes want stuff in proprietary formats. Like, when some work is
needed on an Indesign file, there is little choice for me but to go to
Windoze. Thus, while I hate it and rarely go there, that partition stays
undisturbed on my comp., ready for use when needed. Free software
fundamentalism to this extent would mean some serious pain -- paapi pet
ka sawaal hai!

I have done thinclient setup with using LTSP4.2.
I have given detail info in my previous post.

They have 50 client computers on one server. All clients are diskless.
Server has FC4.

Subject: [Ilug-cal-discuss] Introduction to Inkscape - Graphic Design
and publishing with Free / Open Source Software
To: ILUG-Cal's principal mailing list <ilug-cal-discuss(a)list.ilug-cal.org>
We need to design icons, buttons, graphics for our web-pages, blogs,
user interfaces for software projects done. And it is really simple to
do so using a fantastic tool called Inkscape. Typically this goes
under user-experience engineering and design, a critical part of the
software development industry.
So, if you are interested in teaching yourselves how you can do the
same, following this blog regular and practice according to the
tutorials - http://inkscapetutorials.wordpress.com/
This blog is the aggregation of some of the top guys working in the
field. So, in a way, if you start following their advice you will be
learning from some of the best. And who knows, one of you may just
turn out to be the next graphics design and user experience guru from

They were using old windows machines for Excel, Word, Tally, two

to convert for linux.

I didnot get you properly. However, these all
applications or their replacement should run properly on Linux. This
is their basic requirement.

same as above

They will be used as thinclients. All users will work on
those machines. They will bootup on server.
> 5. What kind of cluster are you looking at?
I heard that Google uses normal computers as a server.
So I thought of this, instead of using single server we will use
normal PCs. May be it is called paralle processing cluster.
> 6. Define: "their collective output"?
Their collective output means if i am using 3 computers
of 1 Ghz processor and 512 MB RAM each. Then after clustering I should
get power of 3 Ghz & 1.5 GB RAM.
> 7. What infrastructure do they have? Do they have a n/w?
yes they have 100MB/s network.
LINUX is basically a simple operating system, but you have to be a
genius to understand the simplicity
I work in NGO. They are migrating from windows to Linux. They can't spend so
much money on servers. They have around 50 PCs. So I want to setup cluster
on 2-3 PCs or more than that for setting up server. I am excepted to get
their collective output. So that it will be compatible with one server. I
heard that it can be done with Linux Clustering. Do anybody have any idea on

If you are a MTNL Triband user and want to connect to the internet through USB, Ubuntu 7.10 will automatically detect the network through the USB.
However, one would have to add the DNS servers in order to get started.
(Kubuntu 6.06 (and later), though, could do it out-of-the box - See the K effect ;) )
Please see the http://www.ubuntu-in.org/wiki/Broadband_Howto#MTNL_Triband page for details. (Somehow, pppoeconf never worked for me on Triband - not even on Kubuntu).
Since the wiki is down and I managed to collect a few ISO last week,
I'll post it here.
I have Ubuntu 7.10 Alternate CD (Ubuntu) for those who would like to
upgrade from 7.04 to 7.10 without wasting bandwidth. I also have
Knoppix 5.1.1 (version number may be wrong).
