Mind me for saying this but, if you put google to a good use, you can find way more tutorials then you'll ever need for linux.

For installing packages for example:

for server software and such:

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.

Good luck,

what in trying to do
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..

Please don't give up on Linux after only 3 days as an LQ member!!!!

I can't help on the specifics of your problem, but I think it is fairly specialized and almost certainly not a Linux issue.

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. and 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.

As already said on your other thread: please share your experience and solutions - that's what this community is about!

Forgive me for saying that, but no google-fu whatsoever will help the original poster if he googles for 'instill linux disruption'. Try it, you will find this thread in the top position ;).

Even google needs a minimum of orthography skills. And forum messages need a minimum of punctuation.
