The Linux Enthusiasts Group (LEG) is a Society at the University of Cape Town, affiliated with the Cape Linux Users Group. This site focuses exclusively on the use of Linux, and other free software at UCT. LEG isn't currently a user group in it's own right. If you want help with linux, you should join the CLUG Mailing lists.

BSD new URLs

The BSD mirrors are being housed under /pub/bsds/.

The old FreeBSD URL should still be used (the new one isn’t set up properly yet).

Added OpenDisc

The Open Disc has taken over from The Open CD.

The release season kicks off

Big Distros:

Little Distros:


  • Ubuntu Gutsy Beta:

Mirrors pending removal

We will be removing gnoppix shortly. It seems to have died upstream.

Kanotix doesn’t seem to be properly mirrorable any more. So it’s going too.

The Open CD has been superseded by The Open Disc.

Mandriva renames

I’ve just noticed that our mandriva PLF mirror is in a bad place.

The new URL for it will be: /pub/linux/rpm-repositories/mandriva-plf/

Please change your configs now, the old URL will die in a couple of weeks.

Also, /pub/linux/mandrake/ doesn’t exist any more. Use /pub/linux/mandriva/

New Mirror: RIP Linux

RIP Linux is a nice little distro, suitable for running off a USB flash drive, or PXE netbooting.

CLUG Talk videos

We are now the primary mirror for CLUG talk videos. They are also mirrored in the UK. You can find direct links on the CLUG talks page

Berylubuntu is no more.

Seeing as the Beryl project has merged into compiz-fusion, and our Beryl Ubuntu mirror has been broken for a while I’ve scrapped the berylubuntu mirror.

Use gutsy if you want compiz-fusion.

Ubuntu Gutsy Beta has landed

Calling all hardcore Ubuntu users. Gutsy beta is out. Take it for a test-spin, and report any major bugs to launchpad.


Fedora Legacy has been removed

I have removed the Fedora Legacy mirror. The project closed down some months ago and is no longer updated. Our upstream mirror site has dropped it. We do not generally have a policy of supporting out-of-date versions of distributions, and we have a severe disk space shortage. Hence, it is gone.
