I having major problems using Linux disruption (Fedora 10) I don't know how to instill a package and cannot find good enough tutorials on how to instill packages than just type this in into this program than set up something else some directory called this and I have nooo clue what to do..reached the point where im about to switch to a windows base OS because of a few reason..there is not any good tutorials of how to get may 2008 onto linux..second for a render farm to work I need a job manager and I have no idea how to instill one I can get to the console and then after that ive tried many things..I even bought a piece of software called wine crossover standard but on the list there wasn't anything for autodesk I tried the other option to instill an unsupported software but the SL or SQl something came up blocking a bunch of things. also the archive instiller says it like corrupted or something the manger is called Mustard.. third I cant find an easy tutorial like walking me though the steps for setting up a small network like a computer seeing another computer..its soo much more easer with windows I just instill hook then up and the os does the rest..I've spent over 14 hours today not more than that this week tiring to get this stuff to work..im at my wits end and im ready to leave all of Linux behind..please in need some serious help..even a website I can go to find some GOOD tutorials at
All this can be found by using google. Further more, if you give us more information on what you're trying to achieve, and a good description on the errors you get or the problems you come into, we can help you get on the way.
right now im tiring to set up a render farm for MAYA 2008..I need to get a job manager the two that I found was Loki Render I think that is for blender 3d only and muster_5.5.6.x32.linux.tar.gz which is multi app compatible and need to instill the package some how..and from what I found on different forums is that I need Maya on every computer for it to work too..I only have a PC instillation for Maya 2008 but ive heard that maya can be instilled on Linux. also I need to network my computers so one can see the other so jobs can be passes between them. the job manager is spose to tell computer where the final images are to be stored..that is what in trying to do..
That's strange! One of the advantages of Fedora is that package maintenance is a snap. A default FC10 install notifies me automatically of any new updates, even making a distinction between security updates and bug fixes. For fans of human interactions there is always the System->Administration->Add/Remove Software menu for installing new packages. Commandline fans will enjoy using yum check-update and yum update, or simply use rpm -Uvh, etc.
Putting up a renderfarm will need some tweaking, no matter if it runs on Linux or Windows or MacOSX. I have found Linux easier for server tasks, but you are free to switch back to Windows, of course.
http://www.tldp.org and http://www.howtoforge.org have tons of documentions, and there are thousands of blogsites available. I guess your problem is not Linux or any specific distribution, but rather your tempered approach.
I think you'll get more focused help if you use a better title such as 'How can I setup a render farm with Maya?'
Also, please try to break up your qn into separate paragraphs or sentences, for easier reading.
