The Linux at UW project was formed last term to create easy-to-install Linux packages for software used in CS courses. We have just released a CD containing the following packages:
The CD also includes a copy of the Red Hat 5.2 distribution of Linux, and is bootable for easy installation. However, the software packages are provided in .deb and .tgz format in addition to .rpm, so that they may also be installed with distributions of Linux other than Red Hat. We also have a limited number of CDs containing Red Hat 6.0 instead. However, the Java JDK and the Modula-3 packages do not work with this version, so please ask for the Red Hat 5.2 CD if you intend to use Java or Modula-3.
The CDs may be borrowed or purchased from the MathSoc office for $4. If you only wish to borrow the CD, you must leave a deposit of $4 at the MathSoc office. You may return the CD within one week to get your $4 back. We will be providing MathSoc with CDs each morning, so if they are sold out, please come back the next day.
