Koululinux is here.
Today I had my first opportunity to fully test (and get working) all configurations of Skolelinux aka Debian-Edu aka Koulu (Finnish for school) Linux here in Finland.
After a few hours of tinkering, I managed to get a Main server, Thin Client server and a thin client working. And whoa, I am impressed and even more excited about the project. LDAP, LVM, Samba, backup and other services you’d expect out of the box. Crazy… ;)
Next week I hope to demonstrate the ease in which I can setup a typical’s school computer system. However this is a tad difficult. As I am making use of HU CS resources on the pretext of Network experiments, I honestly do not have any political support or permission to do work here for Skolelinux, I mean Koululinux.
I now have first hand experience of setting up everything. I hope some collegues could possibly, maybe, share my enthusiasm here.
