Re: Wiki Software

Take a look at SpeedyWiki.  It is very basic and simple to use/manage.  If you 
are looking for any sort of advanced feature, forget about it, but it is 
still great for modest needs.

I think there's something called the Linux Router Project. Which has 
apparently been superseded by LEAF (http://leaf.sourceforge.net/). Or you 
can check this list on wikipedia: 
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Linux_router_or_firewall_distributions

Probably not too much from a performance point of view, but the mere idea 
of running a media server on a firewall/router kinda makes me cringe, 
security-wise. Technically you want your firewall/router/gateway to be 
EXTREMELY secure, so putting any unneccesary applications on it would be 
very bad. Even if you really only mean an NFS file server, it's probably 
best avoided.

Replacement for Yahoo Groups

I'm looking for alternatives to Yahoo Groups. I like the Yahoo Groups 
features of archiving messages, having a place to archive files, and 
being able to schedule events (with automatic reminders) on a calendar. 
Ranked features from most to least important are:

1. One email address which reflects to everyone on the list.
2. Closed list (only members can send email, joining list must be approved)
3. Calendar reminders

Nice, but not necessary:
4. File archives
5. Message archives

There are a few drawbacks of Yahoo Groups. First, I want to add/remove 
people to the list without the list member having to do anything 
special. Some of the members of my lists have email but are 
computer-challenged. Second, Yahoo Groups sometimes gets bogged down and 
timely messages (like calendar reminders) don't go out when scheduled.

My group of volunteers has no funding, so very cheap, preferably 
open-source suggestions are most appreciated.

Thanks!

Re: Missing lib dependency

Yes, I did "ln libldap-2.4.so.2.2.0 libldap-2.3.so.0" command, and it 
created  link  file libldap-2.3.so.0.

Did I do the wrong command? Syntax off? I am not that experienced using 
ln, but I have in the past fixed
lib compatibility doing this, so I am little confused. Ok, actually very 
confused and lost. So I figured either my
syntax is off, or I have linked to the wrong files.

Meeting this Month?

I was checking the web site, but was not able to see if there is a
meeting this month.

Is that an oversight with the web sites "problems" recently or will
there be no meeting Saturday?

Re: Replacement for Yahoo Groups

Something you might want to take a look at is Citadel... It's a BBS/Groupware package that dates back many many years, and offers a variety of options for calendaring and mailing lists. It's GPL now, very easy to setup, and fairly easy to secure and maintain.

Re: Replacement for Yahoo Groups

Citadel is quite an interesting groupware tool.  It has web based / imap / pop3 and IM (web based and XMPP), as well as mailing list and remote retreval  capabilities as well as bbs style functionality.

It is being used via ham radio networks in the Minneapolis / Saint Paul area currently:

Hint: search for citadel

Just curious, but what group? What's its purpose? If it is an open
source software project, SourceForge will of course provide these
services and many others. I vaguely recall projects on SourceForge that
didn't even have code, rather were centered around documentation or
education or something. Ah, here's one:
http://sf.net/projects/slrn-doc/ .

I also use Google Groups (free as in beer, not speech). They provide a
decent service.

I'm planning a meeting where we can work on the website collectively. The idea is to get interested parties together and start working on it asap.

Re: DIY Router/Firewall/Media Server

That depends.  Are you looking to build a firewall/router from scratch
for learning purposes, or are you looking for an easy throw in disk,
wait 12 minutes, reboot & you have a firewall solution?

If you are looking to learn, then grab your favorite distro & do a
google search (ie: Slackware firewall, or what ever) and you will find
what you seek.  Or simply search Linux firewall, and you will be busy
for awhile.

If you are looking for an all in one situation, then I would recommend
checking out

www.smoothwall.org

www.ipcop.org

www.freesco.org

I have been running smoothwall at my home for about 7 or 8 years, and I
like it a lot.  It supports 4 NIC's to separate your internet, dmz, LAN,
and wireless (if you want to be paranoid about it like me).  For home it
rocks.  I have even used it to connect three offices at work via vpn in
the pastas well.  This setup was kicked to the curb one day when a
handful of Cisco PIX 501's fell into my lap however.  I have been
running Smoothwall on a Pent Pro 200 w/ 128Megs of ram with out
problems.  Runs nice, and has a web gui config if you like that kinda
stuff. I would recommend this one.

IPCop is good too.  This project started as a fork from Smoothwall
several years back.  Not sure why anymore, but a couple friends of mine
use it and have nothing but kind things to say about it.

If all you can dig up is a 100Mhz processor or less check out fresco.
This is a nice & easy solution that can run on hardware picked up in the
back alley somewhere.  

There are more, but I have never tried them so I cannot say.

> Additionally, would it be too much to include a media server in such a

> box?

Abort mission on this.  Although what you propose is possible, it kinda
defeats the purpose of the firewall.  Keep the media server separate,
and safely behind the firwall.

Good Hunting!
