A new live-cd with SLIMS

Post by gurujim » 18 Oct 2013, 19:38

I have updated my project of providing SLIMS on Puppy Linux, as a live-cd.
The latest version is called Potthakalaya 1.5 and is available here : https://www.wuala.com/gurujim/Potthakalaya/
Built on Puppy Linux version Precise 5.7.1-retro; Lite version contains XAMPP, Senayan5-update6, Meeting Room Booking system, And Moodle 2.5 ; Full version has in addition: Calibre Ebook reader/manager, JabRef reference manager, and dotProject - project management software.
Download iso of choice, burn to CD, and use to boot your computer - then explore these tools of use to librarians :D . There are lots of readme files ( sorry they are all in English ).
You can get a taste by running the CD live , but the best way to explore is to do a "frugal" install to Hard disk using this CD
{ Read Puppy Linux documentation about this at http://www.puppylinux.com/install.htm }

Please enjoy, .... and I will welcome feedback.

(I have not tested this on Virtual box, but I know it works well on an old Thinkpad R50 :lol: )

Potthakalaya is a project aimed at providing librarians with free OpenSource software tools which make the myriad tasks of librarianship more efficient. At its heart is the Senayan software - everything else is additional ;)

:) It's my pleasure to "spread the word" about excellent software such as Senayan. I will make another release when SLIMS 7 is official and stable.
