Linux Test Drive now taking beta users

Posted by chantra on 14th February 2008

After a number of years in development Linux Test Drive is becoming a reality, from the page:

LTD is a project that has been in development for the last three years. LTD allows the user to determine which distribution best fits their needs utilizing the Linux Distribution Chooser, and then once that is determined, give the user the ability to "test drive" that distribution directly over the Internet, without the need to download. We are currently taking pre-beta registrations for the LTD system.

We believe this project will have a huge and lasting impact on the adoption of the Linux Desktop.

Ruffdogs has contributed to a number of open source projects over the years and is ready to make the biggest impact yet. Please sign up for the early beta and help us tune this system that everybody will be talking about. And please take the time to tell others about it.

gaim-2.0.0beta3 with RendezVous and Meanwhile support

Posted by chantra on 12th June 2006

I've recompiled gaim-2.0.0beta3 in order to support rendezvous (aka bonjour) and meanwhile (aka sametime) protocols.

Gaim-meanwhile used to be an extension to gaim and is now part of gaim's core. Bonjour/RendezVous was developped during he summer of code and is now part of gaim since version 2.0.0.


Well, since debuntu now has its own debs repository, the best way to install gaim 2.0.0beta3 with bonjour and meanwhile supports is to simply add the repository to your sources.list. Refer to the debs repository in order to check how to achieve this and then apt-get update and apt-get dist-upgrade.

Well, hope you like it.

wget, wput or how to easily download-upload over internet

Posted by chantra on 7th April 2006

Most unix administrator might know wget, a HTTP, HTTPS and FTP client developped by the GNU project. Using that tool, you can easily download HTTP page but also packages... Basically anything you can access through your web browser or ftp client.

Uploading something through Internet is, too me, quite annoying in text mode because you need to log in, change path and put the file.

wput is here to resolve this.
