| 1. Visit to Devnar Foundation for the Blind.
* Most of their systems have been donated. So, there are different
motherboards, and brands. Apparently, the local AMC support guy who
had come today didn't have drivers for different proprietary OSes, and
for different motherboards. I then migrated their office computers to
Fedora 11 :)
Now, they have HCL, Wipro computers running Fedora.
* I have disabled many start-p services, to boot the systems faster.
* I also adjusted Orca pitch, rate settings for clarity. It should
take them some time to get accustomed to the American accent.
| 2. Post lunch, around 1430 IST, we would go to Department of
| Astronomy, Osmania University to deploy Fedora offline repository.
* Thanks to Prof. Haasan, I have deployed Fedora 11 repository (29 GB)
at one of the department systems.
* They are interested in creating a Fedora Spin for Astronomy, and
release it, as this is the International Year of Astronomy . I have
provided Rahul Sundarams' e-mail contact to them.
Tomorrow i'm going to visit a meeting of Russian Fedora project's
members. I wanna discuss with them work of their community in
consideration with our international community.
What information can i tell them? And also, what questions can i ask
So, please, send your questions here. I will show it them tomorrow.

Just wanted to let you other ambassadors know that I've been given a
community developer ticket to the Openmind 2009 conference at Tampere,
Finland on September 30th. I've marked Fedora as my "organization",
which should also be printed in the name tag they give the participants,
but there won't be a booth or anything fancy like that. I've been
involved in Fedora translation and development since 2006, so I think I
have quite a clear view on the project and its goals, in case someone is
interested in talking about Fedora. Of course, if some other Fedora
contributors know they'll be there, please let me know and we could
maybe meet up.
I'm having some problem with the F11 DVD iso I downloaded through torrent. I
have already verified the downloaded iso's sha256sum and it is correct to
the last digit. However, after burning the same into a disk, the disk
becomes unreadable. I experienced the same from 4 separate drives - 3
internal (2 desktop, 1 laptop) and 1 external. Can anybody confirm this?
If it's any help, the DVD disk is Benq 8x DVD+R while the the drives are a
mix of Lite-On and LG drives.
I'm doing the fedora weekly news in german for quite a while, so I
thought it would be a good time to make a little "special" for all those
who better can follow such podcast in english.
It can be found at
http://blog.radiotux.de/2009/09/16/fedora-weekly-news-fwn-193/ and also
the RSS feed of radiotux itself.
What do you think about it so far? Are there interrests to have it in
german AND english (maybe we could think then about putting it into
zikula, iTunes, etc. - just some thought crawling around my brain)
Hopefully you enjoy this little "experiment" and maybe somebody else
have some fun making such podcasts and step in.
Also I'm searching for Interview partners (Developers, Contributors,
etc.) who want to say something and have to tell the world outside
fedora whats on the minds of the Fedora people around the world.
mit freundlichen Grüßen / best regards
