I am having problems in intalling Linux on my P2 350. The cds are
being read, but they fail to install. Will someone please help install
a recent upgradable version of Linux on my P2?
Your help would be very much appreciated.
I want to know the functioning and management of a open source software
Is it possible to host, sponsor and co-ordinate software development
The idea is to invite part of industry to contribute to this development.
AutoCAD - its core tool for civil engineering consultancy firms and their
Legal deployment costs a lot. i.e Hardware+Windows+Security+basic
There is cost for upgrades, every 5 years. Software companies expect
upgrades in 2 years.
India is becoming IT leader and Software Legal issues are showing up
Is it feasible to setup an organization for developing usable open CAD for
civil engineers? and provide training for the use of CAD
While discussing FOSS alternatives I raised this possibility and certain
civil engineers/CAD users are interested, Civil engineering Associations are
The mobile market will exceed the computer market in coming years or has
already exceeded the computer and related gadgets market. Nokia and other
manufacturers routinely make softwares for their hardware products for the
windows and macintosh operating systems.
Unless we, the FOSS users request them every now and then thru email,
feedback on their websites, online forums etc etc to also support these
softwares on the linux platform, Linux will get increasingly sidelined and
less people will even come to know about it.
Getting linux on the printed packaging of a product (visibility) is very
important for awareness generation. 95% of the battle of getting linux
popular will be won if it becomes visible to the layman.
I request FOSS users to constantly strive to make linux visible to laymen
thru whatever creative ideas they have, every now and then, specially thru
requests to manufacturers etc and online forums.
Just finished installing the HP K209a PSC (with economy cartridges) in
Went to http://hplipopensource.com/hplip-web/index.html and after
entering the proper details of the OS, it confirmed that I had to
download the package. All instructions are on the site with screenshots.
However after a successful package install (select the custom options
and choose yes to un-install the older hplip package) , neither the
printer or scanner got detected. The user (me) was added to the lp,
saned and lpadmin groups and viola the printer and scanner was detected.
For some reason the HP utility does not start from the KDE menu. One has
to open a gui terminal and type hp-setup. On doing hp- and tab twice you
get a lot of utility options. Using the hp gui itself the printer was
installed. Kooka detected my scanner and I was scanning away. If anyone
wants to have a better utility, I found one in my apt-cache. It is
called 'quteinsane' and it is a frontend for sane. It is more glamorous
and has nice options.
I am using Dual CPU AMD Opteron2378 with Sata harddrive with 32MB cache for
Samba File Server. I have installed CentOS5.3 64bit on it.
Currently 80 users are using that server at same time. All users are using
OpenOffice, Write, Pagemaker on their desktop machines and they work on
server directly. It gives good performance.
There are 10 users who use CorelDraw & Photoshop for their work and they
work locally. Now I put their data on server told them to work on Server
But it reduced their working speed by 50% than locally and on server DiskIOs
also got increased. So then I disconnected all users and only provide access
to those 10 users. So they are working on the server dedicatedly but still
performance was slower than local.
Query : How can I increase Performance for them ? what configuration I
should have to serve those users as a File Server ?
Note: All network cables are CAT6 and switches are of 100MBs.
Query: If HDD is the weakpoint then, will SAS hdd be helpful under these
circumstances? I heard that SAS HDD are faster that Sata. They have 2
catagories 3Gb/s and 6 Gb/s. Even we can get PCIxpress card for SAS ports
from Promise. Can Linux supports these cards?
Thanks in advance
I am Akshay Narkar, currently a student (taken drop for IIT). I stay at Mahim.
I am interested in using Linux as an OS. I visited some Websites
which told me to take help from a Linux group in my area. I tried
downloading Ubuntu Linux from net but my connection is a petty 9kBps.
Can you please suggest a way so that i can get a copy of Free
Linux,along with a users manual from someone in my area?
