A Problem Solved

April 24, 2008 at 8:14 pm (Uncategorized)

I found out a way to remote control a Linux installation over the network. This means no more installation problems in the ladies hostels.

(01:20:19 AM) debayan: shrink: i tried a gr8 new thing today
(01:20:25 AM) shrink has changed the topic to: || http://live.gnome.org/GnomeLove|| ||Welcome to Linux Users’ Group, NIT Durgapur||
(01:20:35 AM) shrink: debayan, what ?
(01:21:01 AM) debayan: shrink: i remote controlled a openSUSE installation via VNC
(01:21:17 AM) debayan: shrink: that means you can now install linux in the LH
(01:21:22 AM) debayan: shrink: sitting in your room
(01:21:25 AM) shrink: debayan, so thats wht we do using vnc
(01:21:29 AM) debayan: shrink: its very sinple

    Hadn’t gone through this one earlier, this can be called a real breakthrough for NIT DGP LUG 🙂
    If girls start using linux, the guys who don’t use it will start feeling inferior and will surely start off… 😀

    @sandeep You have a very strong point 😀
