New mirrors set up for Lugradio:
A mirror admin for lugradio wasn’t very helpful, and threw his toys out the cot when I asked for rsync access, so it might not be as reliable as our other mirrors, but at least we are providing rsync access to this…
For anybody interested in Studio work on Linux, I’ve got (at request) a copy of the JAD 1.0 beta2, the Jacklab Audio Distribution. It’s SuSE based.
Find it here
At request, I’ve got a copy of the Gentoo 2007.0 DVDs which are normally only obtainable by bittorrent.
I don’t know what’s on them, but if you gentoo, go wild :-)
The CS3 students are having a Battle for Wesnoth tournament in TSL next week (27th to 31st August).
Signup is going to be in TSL, this week, R10 buy-in.
Scientific Linux 5.0 (i386 & x86_64) is now on the toaster.
The nice people at breadbin have given us 2 new DVD writers, and a second hard drive.
So the toaster can now write DVDs in all it’s drives, and has space for more distros :-)
JPackage is a repository of Java Software packages in RPM format.
Since the re-opening of ftp.leg.uct.ac.za to the wider world, it has become more popular as a mirror for people outside UCT. This has been a problem, because UCT doesn’t have much bandwidth, and dreamcoat (the server behind this site and ftp.leg) has been traffic-shaped into oblivion by ICTS.
Hopefully this shouldn’t affect anyone adversely, and only make things faster all-round :-) But if you used to access our rsync or ftp service by a name other than ftp.leg.uct.ac.za, things will break for you.
I’ve been cleaning up some of the automatically generated URLs on this site, as they were getting messy.
So if you suddenly get 404s for links you use, please let me know :-)
