Re: [Ambassadors] Introduction



Thanks to everyone.

With regards to the migration project, the migration of the servers went smoothly except for the RAS and our ERP.  For the ERP, I already installed Compiere and Oracle in an FC5 machine (http://dev.efabian.com:8088).  It is currently being evaluated in our system.  For the RAS,  I still have no idea how to set it up with Linux, though I can configure a dial-in using mgetty.  Another problem I encountered was the installation of mod_perl2 to apache for our calendar server though this one is already solved using PHP and MySQL.

With the desktops, our Phase 1 is to install FC6 and FreeBSD to at least 20 initial users with KDE (I personally prefer Gnome) so that the menus will still look like with Windows.  There are numerous initial positive feedbacks which include:
A. Faster conversion of open office files to PDF files
B. Faster browser (Firefox)
C. Secured email (Kmail + Spamassasin)

On the technical side, the issues we encountered relate to Java Run-time and Flash plug-ins.  We our now on Phase 2 where we stabilize networking between Windows, Fedora and BSD.  We're currently working on samba and cups for the printing.  Our target users of open-source platform in the office is more than a hundred in 3 months time.

Regards,
E. Fabian

Sounds like an interesting project. I'd be curious to know how many
desktops we're talking about and any other feedback you have from the
migration.

Welcome!
