Baishakhi Linux Updates - OOo 2.4 modifed src tarball et al

Thursday, September 11th, 2008

1. There is now a “OpenOffice.org 2.4 modified source” section with an option to download from here. It’s a 402+ MB tar.gz file. I’m presently downloading that. It should be done in a couple of hours.

2. The link to the Japanese mirror site hosted by Mat3Impex for Baishakhi Linux download has been removed from NLTR website. The Japanese mirror was *way* faster as the NLTR.ORG website (the only site to download anything from) as presently hosted in the US is at least 6 times as slower as far as downloads are concerned. (this could become a point of concern though unless this is looked into soon)

“Baishakhi Linux sources are available from *the* CD using mount”

Most of you who have been following the Baishakhi Linux saga unfold already know that quite a few people from all over India have had requested for the source code to be made available for the project.

I too, has used the SNLTR Forum as later on also suggested by Prof. Anupam Basu of IITKGP and Director, SNLTR, for requesting information as to where I can get the sources from - http://nltr.org/snltrforum/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=8

My enquiry was short and simple -

বৈশাখীলিনাক্সের ISO‌-র সোর্স কোড কোথা থেকে পেতে পারি?

or

Where from can I get the Baishakhi Linux ISO’s sources” followed by “$SUBJECT says it all

So far, that question went without any answer - mails to their devel mailing list via the web-based feedback form (done after I had received the invitation for the inaugural program) or the forum (done yesterday) and the only thing close to an answer was Prof. Basu’s reply yesterday evening -

“The release was on the 8th of September and it was planned to make the source code available upstream, within a few days as is expected of open-source activities. Please keep your weather eyes open on the SNLTR site.”

I was away from Kolkata since morning and now on coming back, I found this “reply” waiting for me in the Forum by one of the developers.

নমস্কার
বৈশাখী লিনাক্স ১.০ সংস্করণটি Ubuntu 8.04 এর উপর ভিত্তি করে তৈরী করা হয়েছে ।
Ubuntu এর মতই এর CD কে মাউন্ট করে সোর্স কোড পাওযা যেতে পারে ।

meaning “Namashkar! Baishakhi Linux version 1.0 is based on Ubuntu 8.04. Just like Ubuntu the Baishakhi Linux CD can be mounted to access the source code
