It gives me pleasure to announce the 0.2.1 release
(Phoebe-http://www.flickr.com/photos/tiayiti/8477848448 ;-) ) of the
School Server Community Edition project. Since the 0.1 release nearly a
month ago, a significant amount of core XS functionality has been included.
With this release, we have a largely functional schoolserver, with all
the core services up and running. We have tested this on the XO-1.75 and
the generic x86 "big iron", and look forward to contributors (hackers,
testers, folks wanting to run pilots).
=Download & Install=
Detailed instructions can be found here:
Here are some steps to try it out on an XO-1.75 laptop (Installation
requires a working internet connection):
yum -y install xs-config-xo
The code for this server resides at
http://sugardextrose.org/projects/xs-config/repository . People
interested in hacking should clone the repo and feel free to send
patches to server-devel.
There are weekly skype meetings on Thursdays 8pm EST for people who can
join in those.
We encourage users to break the server, find weird use cases and create
Here are some basic testing notes to get started with
* SELinux and XSCE don't mix well so far. If SELinux isn't disabled
already, please do so before/after install.
* The machine needs to be rebooted after installing the server for
everything to work smoothly.
* On xo the hostname is automatically changed to schoolserver.local. On
non-xo it is whatever the user set it to, so if you want
schoolserver.local you must edit /etc/sysconfig/network and issue the
==Looking forward - 0.3==
* Targeted release date - 5/12
* Server GUI (Administrator, Teacher)
* Content services
* Code Modularization
* Faster releases, wider testing
* Support for FC18, 13.1.0
* Support for wider hardware XO1-4, Rpi
* Load testing
