Lotsa freesco packages

Announcements of packages that are now released.

Postby Marc » Wed Jan 19, 2005 9:36 am

Hi folks,

I just stumbled over this: <a href='http://nnd.freesco.pl/pakiety.php' target='_blank'>http://nnd.freesco.pl/pakiety.php</a>
I know there is a lot of freesco activity in Poland because MLNet is used over there a lot. The MLnet/freesco website (http://borders.dontexist.com) has most visitors from Poland.

There are a lot of packages listed that I did not know existed for freesco. I wonder if they work on freesco and for what version of freesco they where made.
Is there anyone in this forum who speaks Polish?

Marc

p.s. the list:

P.S.S. Howler removed the list.

Well, I don't want to get into the discussion that has been going on at one point in time, about the Polish "contribution" to the Freesco project.

But in my humble opinion, they took Freesco, and started "their own spin-off" from the origional project.
So I guess those packages should work on Freesco, but I'm unsure about what version they would run on.
I do suspect however, that most packages will be in the Polish language, and therefore not of much use to non-Polish people.

just my 2 cents

I personally have no problems with the Polish group and the language barrior has always been the biggest issue. But from what I know of the group and there packages, they were built for the 0.2.x series and or modified versions of that series. Of course just a quick browse through some of the package names makes me think pretty seriously modified 0.2.x series.
If you are afraid that you might make a mistake. The chances are high that you will never learn anything.

The list above is not for FREESCO (I think) but just stuff for developers.
Their FREESCO packages are here: <a href='http://download.freesco.pl/' target='_blank'>http://download.freesco.pl/</a>

This is not FREESCO anymore.

This is now "Nasza Nowa Dystrybucja (NND)" or

"our new distribution (NDD)"


Just my 2 cents.

I looked at their site last nite... Looks like they have started their "own" version of Freesco... Not good at reading polish, but looks like they are changing quite a few things...

That is the idea I was getting from the site, but was looking for confirmation from someone who is with that project.

Hi,
I'm from Poland.
Good news -
Howler You are right, NND translated means "Our New Distribution".
Bad news
It is not a Freesco distribution.

Som guys, from our country has made new distribution that may work fine with USB ADSL modems. All that because Freesco do't support USB but USB modems are most popular in our country :(
Dingetje is also right, <a href='http://download.freesco.pl/' target='_blank'>http://download.freesco.pl/</a> is main download center of Freesco packages in Poland.
Basicly NND are founded on Slackware distributions and has finctionality Arch LInux distribution.

OK thats my 2 cents ;)

Hi,
I just spent 10 minutes with a Polish speaking colleague at work and visited the nnd website.

It looks like nnd may have been inspired by freesco, but is completely different thing.

The main distribution is on a CD, and an .iso file can be downloaded somewhere. It has to be setup on a pentium class machine with at least 32meg RAM and the base system occupies about 100meg on a hard disk. The package manager is called pacman and users are advised that around 500meg will be needed on the hard disk.

It uses a 2.4.* kernel and supports usb, wifi, ext2, ext3 and reiserfs.

It looks like all the documentation is in Polish, and the site had been visited 41905 times when we visited.

It doesn't look like it is intended as an "upgrade" to freesco but rather an alternative.

Interesting, but I have enough trouble with linux in English so it will be too hard to learn Polish to use it!

Regards, Robert

So I guess they created a "spin-off" of the great product called Freesco... ?
Ah well... that's the power of open source :P
