We call it "elsewhere" so ...

But I like to see you all growing in Northern Africa. Do you know about a
"bigger" Linux Event in Tunis, Monastir or whereever it makes sense for us
to come and support you local guys?
Actually there's this: http://www.opensource.tn/index.php?id=46&L=0&tx_ttnews[tt_news]=164&tx_ttnews[backPid]=8&cHash=da9695d3dd
It might be too late, we just knew about it.

I'll do my best to track/provoke the next events.

What do you need from Fedora? Do you need medias? Which one; 32 Bit or 64
Bit? Do you need Live Medias or Installation DvD?

Media will be welcome: yes we need a few, I'd say 2/3 64 and 1/3 32 of as many you can send - 500 ? less/more ?


Zied, we would like to support you all others, but don't know how ...
What are your needs?
 
There's something, somehow expensive, but would make us very very happy. We talked about it with the Ambassadors from France, Armel & Thomas. We do have an IBM system P,9110-51A (System p5 510, 510Q Express) - we won it from an SFD.

it includes 2x 73G disks, and there's room for 2 more disks, it would be nice if we can get those 2 disks and we have the "GO" to host it freely as a PUBLIC MIRROR directly at the Tunisian BACKBONE, that will give it more than 400G (I know it's much more)

the problem is the price, here the best price we got:
1x hdd 146 = 1160TND/1.9=610€
1x hdd 300 = 1320TND/1.9=695€

Geroldka

Kind regards,
Zied.
