Fedora Repository

1 Preliminary Note

In this tutorial I use the hostname server1.example.com with the IP address These settings might differ for you, so you have to replace them where appropriate.

We want to make the yum repository accessible through http; Apache’s default document root on Fedora is /var/www/html, so I’ll create the repository in /var/www/html/yum. If you’re using a different vhost, you might have to adjust the paths.

Slim Server

This is my first blog so, don’t expect my blog to be free from english mistakes because technical guys are generally weak in communication and litreary .This first blog is about how to install the SLIM server which stands from Single Linux Image Management.Basically this is a article which I really found very much interested as a FOSS Lover……………..

A. Introduction

A Linux cluster is considered a single system which consists of a set of tightly coupled machines called nodes. In many cases, it is locked inside a room and people access it remotely via the network. Usually nodes are individually installed with the Linux OS manually. This creates much setup burden when the number of nodes is large.

SLIM (Single Linux Image Management) is a solution developed by the Department of Computer Science of HKU to ease the deployment and management of large-scale networked Linux systems. One of the goals of SLIM is to reduce the setup burden. This workshop teaches you how to setup, administer, and manage a SLIM environment for cluster computing. More information about SLIM can be found at the website http://slim.cs.hku.hk/.

The SLIM environment consists of a SLIM server to provide shared system resources via the network to the client PCs. Client PCs known as cluster nodes use network booting to start the Linux system locally.

In this workshop, we will use the Fedora Core 2 Linux distribution to setup the SLIM server to serve all the cluster nodes connected in a network. Figure 1 depicts the specific network topology we will use in this workshop.

The SLIM server is on the private network. The IP address of the SLIM server is This is the simplest form of the SLIM environment network. But it is powerful enough to build a Linux Cluster having tens of cluster nodes.
