Rollwala, Dept. of Computer Sc.,
It was my great pleasure and opportunity to discuss and deliver lecture /
seminar to the Faculties all over from Gujarat.
Thanks to Mr. Hardik Joshi for inviting me and opportunity to have
exhaustive interaction on Open source.
I discussed about open source and how to begin with open source and it's
I had distributed total 50 no. of Live CD and installable DVDs Fedora 13.
Discussed what are the different application available with open source and
around 20 minutes hands on how to use Live CDs.
Few of them are interested to have open source workshop / hands on for their
faculties and for student also.
As they are eager to implement some open source solutions at their college.
I hope this will create good initiative for open source.

I wanted to chime in on this too. I also have Acer netbook and am stuck on
Fedora 11 until some support for Poulsbo in Fedora 13.

Hello to everyone. I got a question.
What happened to Intel GMA500 "Poulsbo" video card and Fedora? It
doesn't work for me. Have anyone tried to solve this problem?
Expecting the solution from someone. Please I need your help.

For the most part, all of the Fedora 13 Media has been distributed to
the 'shipping masters' throughout North America. If you are
interested in obtaining some Fedora 13 media, please file a ticket at
https://fedorahosted.org/famnarequests/. We expect to be able to ship
media rather quickly, but it doesn't mean you will get it in a couple
of days, so please plan ahead if you need media for an event or other
In addition, on the Fedora Events page for Q2
there is not an owner for LinuxCon, but we have some media to be
delivered for the event. The event takes place August 10-12 in
Boston, MA. Please speak up if you think you can help deliver this
media to LinuxCon.
That is all, thank you.
Hey, all --
I won't be at the FAmNA meeting tonight because I'm taking my daughter to
the airport, but I wanted to point out couple of OSCON developments in case
it comes up in the events section:
-- Date: July 19-23.
-- We have a booth, No. 832, in the dot.org section
-- I'm ready to take names . . . for the booth that is. They will be
submitted to OSCON. People who are going and also want to be in the booth
are encouraged to register anyway, since we have only four booth passes
available (admission to the expo floor is free, so it would be OK to
register as an attendee and work the booth anyway). We also have one pass
for the programs which we can share between booth denizens.
-- Vertical banners: Need 'em to go to Kevin (crossbytes) when available.
-- SWAG: We have media, shirts, stickers, window stickers. Needed are pens
-- Budget: Because Kevin (crossbytes) and Matt (LinuxKnight) are local and
will be working the expo, there may not be a lot in the way of lodging and
travel expenses; in fact, I am working on that aspect right now, and if you
need to have some travel/lodging/etc. added, let me know by e-mail. I hope
to start this part of the proverbial equation by tomorrow and finish it
Meanwhile, if you're going to OSCON, sign up on the soon-to-be-updated wiki
page at https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/OSCON_2010
Dear freedom crowd,
the media company informed me about the estimated delivery date of the
It is the 25th of June. 2010, of course.
Get ready for brand new and shiny fresh media!
PS.: I will try to take some pictures and upload them to my blog, so
you can see the hot new stuff.
best freedom regards,
keep on hacking,
Mit freundlichen Grüßen / with kind regards,

Warum mache ich überhaupt dieses ganze OpenSource Zeugs?
Lesen Sie hier, warum;
Just wanted to let you know that there are a couple of events here in
Finland during the summer which I plan to attend. The first one is
Akademy in Tampere, which starts on July 3rd <http://akademy.kde.org/>.
So far I'm only planning to attend the Akademy Conference during the
weekend, since hotel accommodation isn't exactly cheap. However, if
there's something interesting happening during the week, I could always
take a train from Helsinki to Tampere for a day.
The second event is the Assembly demo party from August 5th to 8th in
Helsinki <http://www.assembly.org/summer10/>. We've usually had a
Linux/FOSS desk there organized by the Finnish Linux User Group, here
are some photos from 2008:
If any Fedora contributors are attending either event, we could probably
meet up. Akademy might be a bit too soon to get any swag shipped here
(and besides, most Akademy attendees probably already know about
Fedora). If at all possible, I'd like to have some Fedora CDs and/or
DVDs and maybe stickers or something to hand out at Assembly. During the
previous years pretty much all discs we've had have been handed out.
Since many attendees spend the whole three days at the Assembly venue,
they usually have time to test the distributions we represent and come
back to us asking for help, if needed.
On a related note, I took part in an episode of the only Finnish Linux
related podcast, LinuCast, on Fedora 13 release day. We were talking
about the new release, of course:
Fedora Project Ambassadors and generally people inside fedora who make
public relationships are always surrounded by people who want to learn more
about Fedora. People always ask them how fedora works, QA and generally want
to know more and more. The only thing that they don't know is the
People are more friendly and chat more easily when they know you name and
they are not calling you buddy, my friend, young man and many other
nicknames. You can always introduce yourself every time you start a chat but
I think it would be better to wear a Fedora ID card with your name on it.
Additional it would be better to have a Fedora laynard with a Fedora ID
card and a place to attach your usb stick and many more.
I think it would be perfect to create some Fedora laynard which can be used
in every Fedora or generally FOSS event/conference.
I made some search together with Pierros and we came up that the price for a
single laynard is less than a dollar. If you think that it is a good idea we
can contact the factory and make sure that they create some/a lot of Fedora
laynards for having them at FUDCon 2010 at Zurich.
What do you think?
 something like that:
