Club Rainbow's new Linux Computer Lab

Darrel C.

Thanks to team effort, SLMG has successfully set up 10 computers with Edubuntu in Club Rainbow's computer lab on Sat 21 Jul 07. The final installation was done on Sat 21 Jul 2007 from 0900 to 1300 by a team of volunteers from SLMG.

Here are the specs of the lab:
- 9 x Datamini P4-1.7 w 256MB RAM w Edubuntu 7.04 client
- 1 x HP P4-3.2Ghz w 512 MB RAM w Edubuntu 7.04 client/LTSP server (also w Squid and internet sharing)

The photos have been updated in the photo section:

For those who missed out, not to worry. We have surplus of PCs and are now talking to other charities who might also set up similar labs. We hope to get your continued support in our next installfest.

Some remaining work still required so we may still need to contact some of you:
- need to swap out the 8-port switch for a 12 or 16 port one
- need half height network interface for the server (currently using USB wireless)
- lay proper cat5 network cables to the remaining PC (we got 6 hooked up to share internet)
- re-crimp a new cat5 connector that connects to server (current one contact is not so good)
- documentation on passwords and network configuration to Club Rainbow
- probably need to follow up with visits to check state of PC and train them

Congratulations and thanks to everyone who helped for a job well done!

Curious to know, how the project turned out after a few months - how popular the system was with the users, any admin/usability/unfamiliarity problems.

Would be good to have some simple follow up after each of such projects.

Yes, I am volunteering :)
