Paris Descartes University's UFR Biomédicale turns to Mandriva

Filed under
MDV

Paris Descartes University's UFR Biomédicale has installed the Mandriva Linux operating system on client desktops and servers to ensure a permanent stability and optimise the work of its 4,500 students.

The 'UFR Biomédicale' of Saints-Pères embraces within the Paris Descartes University different medical and life science academic units and 14 laboratories attached to the CNRS and INSERM research institutions.

The Paris 'UFR Biomédicale' wished to integrate an operating system answering several criteria:

* stability and updated versions for software including apache, php, mysql, ldap, samba and ssh for their servers;

* reliability;

* user-friendly management for a distribution integrating scientific tools for lecture halls and reading rooms.

* Simplicity, facility and security are key Mandriva words and its operating system proves a perfect match for the Paris UFR Biomédicale's needs.

Any Money in it

That is nice and all but is Mandriva going to get any money from the venture? If not then it isn't going to help them get out of their current financial situation.

GNOME and GTK News: GNOME Release and More

These are the most exciting Linux powered devices

FreeBSD News: 64-bit Inodes and KDE

  • FreeBSD Lands Support For 64-bit Inodes (ino64 Project)
    While Linux and other operating systems (including DragonFlyBSD) have supported 64-bit inodes for data structures on file-systems, FreeBSD has been limited to 32-bit. But thanks to the work of many on the ino64 project, FreeBSD now has support for 64-bit inodes while retaining backwards compatibility.
  • KDE FreeBSD CI (2)
    The KDE Continuous Integration system builds KDE software from scratch, straight from the git repositories, and usually from master (or whatever is considered the development branch). It’s been building for Linux for a long time, and has recently been expanded with FreeBSD servers as well. KDE sysadmin has been kind enough to provide two more VMs (with some more compiling “oomph”) so that we can keep up better, and the CI has just been expanded with all of the Plasma products. That means we’re now building KDE Frameworks, and the Plasma desktop.
