The subject must have made it all clear. Does there exist any such
add-on which will take a back up of all currently installed add-ons on
my firefox browser? This is really required because once we re-install
an OS all the add-on settings are lost and re-installin all the
add-ons again one-by-one is really a pain

Could u please tell me if any Fedora meetings or workshops being held in
& if u provide me the details of Ambassadors in Rajasthan so that i can
contact them if we can hold the same.
IOTA, a society under the Dept of IT, Govt. Of West Bengal is
organising a convention on "Freedom in Computer Technology".
There will be eminent speakers here. Also there will be people from
corporate and universities.
Participation if free.
I have managed to secure a booth for Fedora.
Also it gives the ambassadors from Eastern India the opportunity to
meet up. (Unoffcially though).
So we need volunteers to attend the booth. Also I shall request all
the Ambassadors from Kolkata and nearby to please come up so that we
Please register here http://iotawb.org/registration.html
I have talked with them and they are open to extend the registration
period, in case anyone left out.
The date of convention is 26/27/28 Dec. 2008.
For any other questions please let me know.

The Linux workshop has not ended yet!! Before you start thinking a lot, let
me clarify that IEEE has officially declared it closed, but guys what about
un-official?? We did not do it. did we?? :)
Anyways, I would like to share my thoughts/feelings that I came across in
past 15 days.
I feel extremely happy to write this letter.
First of all, I would like to thank and congratulate to everybody who was a
part of this extragavanza. It was the first official event related to
Linux/FOSS and I feel that we did pretty well. The enthusiasm displayed by
you all was much above my expectations. 15 days is not a short time and I'm
happy that we could connect to each other well. FOSS seems to have bridged
many gaps amongst us. We did not have 1st, 2nd, 3rd years sitting in the
sessions; we had JIITians!!
Secondly, I see this workshop as the foundation of FOSS at JIIT. My partners
Ankur and Puneet have done a splendid job. Without their efforts and fundoo
attitude we could not have lived the moments we cherish now. IEEE JIIT
Student Chapter (IJSB) has provided us with a much needed platform to
showcase FOSS. Gaurav Darbari, Priyanka, Chandni, Varun Mittal and and the
whole IJSB team has really come together as great people supporting our
endeavors. I originally planned for an event in October but I guess December
was the month cut out for this. And tell you what, it was the perfect time
that we could have ever asked for.
Thirdly, I would like to thank Satyaakam Goswami Sir for his guidance during
the workshop. He went out of the way to setup dates with the guests like
Supreet (the Python guy) and Karunakar (l10n, i18n guy). Satyaakam Sir's
mentorship was a blessing for us and I hope that the relation will continue
further and we all will gain more and more. I also thank Rajan Vaish (JUIT
Solan), Chirag Anand (JUIT Solan) and Khushbu Mohta (KEC) for sharing their
experiences with us. This indeed helped us to connect to FOSS as students. I
also thank Susmit Shannigrahi and the Fedora team who provided us with the
Fedora material and Gora Mohanty Sir who carried them all the way from
Bangalore to Delhi which were then picked up by Satyaakam Sir. See how
things happen in FOSS. :) I leave it upto you to search for the unknown
names I just mentioned and share with other on JIIT-LUG.
On a much personal front, I would like to say that I enjoyed sharing these
15 days with all of you. Just for the record, I never had this high
attendance in any of the semesters till date which was even brought to my
notice by my family :P
I hope we have touched FOSS well enough for you to explore further. FOSS for
me is a very emotional affair, its something that I was long been longing
for. I feel delighted to be associated with each one of you. If someone asks
me what is my contribution to FOSS till now, I would say "JIIT" without any
second thoughts. I feel very fortunate that I could convince you people to
join this side of software development.
Lastly, I wish that everyone who participated will not let the FOSS inside
you die with the receipt of certificate. It took birth to grow and blossom.
It would be very disheartening if the number of FOSSy guys from Workshop
drops. We had some 80+ guys at the beginning and on last day we had 40+.
Some of our friends left in between the workshop due to various reasons.
Though they did miss out on some things but NOTHING is lost. If you have
some complains/doubts/anything, please post on this thread. Don't keep it
inside you. We in FOSS world don't close anything, we share!! Also, I
request you to work towards spreading the FOSSness around JIIT. There were
many who did not join us this time. They also need to be made aware of what
we are upto. Talk about your experience and share your knowledge with others
to achieve this. Ask for help if you feel and I believe you know what/how to
do in FOSS. I hope you have put up the stickers wherever possible. :)
Also, I have done a small exercise in past 2 day to sum up the workshop. I
will divulge the details soon(its a surprise!). Next, I was wondering if we
can call ourselves FOSS family?? I have some roles/plans for this family and
everyone will easily fit in it. Please do post here and express your
views about anything. (BUT, please don't hijack the thread) :)
Keep you doubts/concerns pouring on JIIT-LUG. We have not started to stop.
Wishing you all happy vacations and a fun-filled FOSS journey, I hereby
announce Linux Workshop un-officialy closed!
Let the FOSSness spread!!

"Life is the greatest teacher"
iam magesh, (a final yr. engineering student from chennai)a Fedora
i am doing a project based on the LTSP
so for that i need to customize my grub
need to add pxe as well as gfxboot support to the grub
so anyone help me....
LiFe is "just tryin out things to see if they work"
I am planning to create Fedora 10 local langor uage live cd's with
Malayalam, Tamil and Bengali as defaults for a start. I have a set of
kickstart files derived from the Fedora desktop kickstart file that I
created for Fedora 8 which can be updated for this purpose.
Is there any other languages where there is a significant Indian L10N
community effort in Fedora and where a live cd could be of benefit to
bring in more contributors/users?
All I am planing to do is install fonts and switch the default locale
but if you would like to see more localized guides or anything like
that, you would have to volunteer to provide content and help with testing.
Following most of the advise here:
I was attempting to install Fedora 10 on a MacBook Pro without much
success, well I managed the install and WiFi, but some reason sound,
touchpad and graphics did not work OOB as advertised.
Only difference is that I used the 32-bit Fedora DVD, in fact the image
that I got of the good Fedora folx at FOSS.IN/2008.
Any pointers anyone?
