linux for youth club (lumix...?)
I know there are about a hundred posts a day here concerning internet café solutions etc. but this is a bit different. I'm working at a youth club in Norway, and we have a section where the youths can use computers, mainly for internet-related stuff, but also possibly office apps and in extremely rare occations, image manipulation etc. Some of these youths seem to have a certain apetite for destruction... especially when it allows them to prove to the others what geniuses they are for breaking such a secure OS as Linux! What I am searching for is a distro that is VERY secure and limited for the casual user, and preferably "user-friendly". However, there is no need for any time limit, or a POS system, and if I can avoid tweaking one of those to my needs I would be very happy. A fellow linux-user convinced me to install Fedora Core 3 on a machine here, and tweak it until it was safe. Well, it's ALMOST safe now, but it seems Red Hat have put a lot of user-specific config files outside of the /home directory! Or is it GNOME who does this? Anyway, you can still ruin the GUI settings without a problem, and the only way I've figured out to restore is to either do a COMPLETE restore of the system from a previous backup, or to manually reset the destroyed settings. I've heard about something called lumix, but their site is down, does anybody know if this is permanent or temporary? And I guess having them send a copy all the way here is quite out of the question... (I mean, they're not exactly ubuntu) Is lumix the closest I can get? (it actually seemed pretty darn close from what I could read) Or are there any alternatives?
