Tech Sampada team distributed a Debian based Gnu/Linux distribution at Gnu/Linux Habba v3 event @ NMAMIT, Nitte near Mangalore on 7th February, 2009. Team has got a long term goals to make this distribution stable Kannada release which enables Kannadiga’s to use their native language (Kannada) during computing, without much hinderence.
At the moment distributed distro contains Live + Installer options on it. Live cd option can be used to test and then install the distribution on computers using installer options. More than 20 people tested, installed and used distribution during Habba. We also helped many students to install Gnu/Linux on VirtualBox as they were found to be bit frantic.
Special Note: Team managed to deploy 26GB Debian repo on a server @ NMAM Institute of Technology, Nitte to provide Gnu/Linux resources to students. Special thanks to our Debian guru Ravi (CrazyGene) for all his contribution.

It has been quite some time that I bloged regularly. Busy with my new batch of trainees and have been teaching them Gnu/Linux. My passion for Gnu/Linux took me along with few of my comrades from Sampada community and we continued our journey with our unique Gnu/Linux install fest called “Gnu/Linux Habba” v3 @ NMAMIT, Nitte during the weekend. Had a real good time sharing knowledge with students, faculty crew and other interesting enthusiasts who came in there to join their hands with us in our work. Team of volunteers from the college were really helpful in getting many things done and it was really good to work with them. Thanks once again to all of them! My visits to Vidhyavana and Sheshavana opened windows to nature while Dr. Aravinda aithal spoke to us about it and its beauty. The Sunday spent with Mr. Addoor is an unforgettable event.
All this raises the bar up once again and see if I can do more than what I have planned to. I shall write about all this in detail once I’m done with my work.
