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.

Debian 4.0r1 ISO images

So it’s taken a while, but we now have the full set of Debian CD and DVD images for the updated 4.0r1 release. Links below.

LugRadio mirror

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

Gentoo DVDs

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 :-)

Wesnoth tournament in TSL

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 on the toaster

Scientific Linux 5.0 (i386 & x86_64) is now on the toaster.

New DVD writers for 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 Mirror

We appear to have a new mirror for JPackage.

JPackage is a repository of Java Software packages in RPM format.

Linux Mint 3.0

I’ve downloaded a copy of Linux Mint 3.0.

It can be found here, and on the toaster, under Ubuntu.

ftp.leg IP Address change

Since the re-opening of 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.

To help ICTS distinguish between requests for ftp.leg and our other services (,, this site,, etc.), we’ve moved ftp.leg to a different IP address.

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, things will break for you.
