But mis-pronouncing Gentoo is no big deal. I still have many people tell me I mis-pronounce Linux because I insist on using a long strong I, as in Lie-nuks. I do so because of the obvious - Linus Torvalds. His name is Linus (with a strong i), not Lenus. Thus, combining his first name with Unix, we would have LIE-nuks. Seems simple, no? I find the argument at every turn, but I insist on saying LIE-nuks because it is the only pronounciation that makes any sense, given it's a derivative of LIE-nuses name.

Hmm, seems that Linus Torvalds disagrees with you


That's only because he is a foreigner. He pronounces his name Leenis, like penis. Not sure if I'd want to pronounce it Leenix. Darn foreigners...

(EDIT: I heard that audio file several years ago and is exactly why I came to the conclusion of pronouncing it LIE-nuks. He pronounces his name LEEnus and thus LEEnuks. And since Linus is LIEnus to normal people (again tongue in cheek), then it is LIEnuks.)

They know everything. I heard a rumor they wiretapped the forums and even sneaked one of their men in as moderators.

It's nice that you got a computer lab running open source software. But it was said that the gentoo systems are constantly updated. Somehow I think that wasn't the best idea in a school, since sometimes new packages in portage are broken.

Somehow I don't think he runs a plain "emerge sync && emerge world -uDN" every day...
Gotta love Gentoo, in which it is childsplay to have your own package tree overlay :)

he's not the one who pronounced it like that.

So basically they filmed a few emerge and distccmon screenshots, with you talking in simple terms but offering no discussion about the relative merits of other more popular non-vendor Linux distributions, or how you keep the 20 machines in sync.

That type of discussion would have been completely lost on 99% of the audience.

You sort of explained the benefits of USE flags, that's about all I can give you credit for.

He wasn't asking for any 'credit'.

Trolls. :roll:

ah, the fine art of trolling (where's your last tv interview Dlareh?). Well, I suppose you dont get to 1432 posts in two months by being sensible :D

... and by the way: His name is Linus Torvalds and he pronounces "linuchs" as "linuchs".

I have no desire to be on local television, especially for a piece as useless as this one obviously was.

I don't think this is really an issue. I've run updates weekly for years now and I can't remember the last time I have had any broken packages from the stable branch. Even if you do get something that doesn't compile, you can just mask that specific version and be on your way.

But it is an issue. I've had problems that stem from an update to gentoo. And not being careful with etc-update can also have disastrous results. Yeah, it's not often, but I wouldn't want to risk it in a school. Update things over the weekend when kids aren't doing their work.

Howdy folks,

This may seem like a "shameless plug", but I thought you might be interested in seeing a piece our local CBS news affiliate did on our school's recent switch to Gentoo Linux (I'm the network administrator they interviewed). Forgive my awkwardness in front of the camera :oops: . You can download the video clip by going to http://www.ghca.com, currently the news story is our top "headline" on our homepage.

If anyone would like to provide a mirror (the video is a small 5MB mpeg 4), feel free (less stress on our server), just list the link below.

Let me know what you think!

Mike

ps - knowing I'd be representing Gentoo to the general populous, I stayed away from a lot of "technical jargon" - keep that in mind as you watch the interview. :wink:


great interview, good job! :D

PostPosted: Fri Oct 14, 2005 11:33 pm    Post subject: labexec code Reply with quote

The labexec script (which I created long before I switched to Gentoo) is a very simple script that allows me to run a command on all the workstations in the lab. Here it is:

Oh, since I'm posting it, let's just go ahead and release it under GPL :)

Code:

# This script allows a command / program to be run on every computer in the lab
#
# Written by Michael Surran
# Feb 12, 2004

function send_command() {
   # This function checks to see if a particular station responds to a ping
   # if so, the command is sent via secure shell to that station
   # For this to work, each station should have public key of this computer

   if ping -q -c 1 -w 1 station$2 | grep -q "1 received" ; then
      ssh -x station$2 "$1" && echo "$1 command sent to station $2" ||\
       echo "$1 command failed on station $2"
   else
      echo "Station $2 not responding.. Most likely off."
   fi
}

# loop through each station number in the lab
for L in 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20
do
   # Run send_command function in background to allow for parallel processing and
   # thus much greater speed
   send_command "$1" $L &
done

# wait until all processes are complete before releasing this script
# (This may be an ugly way of doing this.. I'll check more into it later)
while ps -fC ssh | grep "$1" > /dev/null
do
   sleep 1
done


However, odds are you are interested in the genstall script, which for reasons specified earlier in this thread, I'm not ready to release at this time.
