Linux Mirror Being Set up

Saigon Linux Group sets up Linux mirrors in Vietnam

Well, Tony just sent me an email.  He is setting up a mirror for OpenSuse right now on the Saigon Linux Group server.  This should make downloading that particular Linux distro in Vietnam easier.  Servers in Vietnam get higher allocation of bandwidth than the servers outside of Vietnam.  Within the week, there should be a Gentoo mirror set up as well plus other popular Linux and open source software.  Our goal is to get a fully working Linux mirror system before the conference next month.

Great job Tony and thanks to GHP Far East for the bandwidth and public IP :-)

Linux Mirror Being Set up

Thanks Kev, yep, we have it finally going. It was fun setting it up :-) and I'll also try to get Novell's permission to have SLES (SuSe Linux Enterprise Server) / SLED (SuSe Linux Enterprise Desktop) there too. That should help enterprises looking for more commercial Linux distributions.

Novell SLED (The Desktop Version) is a more out of the box and easy to use desktop distribution, and they try to make it as user friendly as possible. They also remove all un-necessary software like server software that a normal user doesn't require making the distribution more compact, and avoiding accidental double server installs (like DHCP) which the user un-intentionally activated (was a software developer with root access...whoops)

SLES similarly is more server based, hence all the media/ office packages aren't on it.
