Render Job SuperComputer help

This seems to be rather a blog of your activities, and you already mentioned software install problems on FC10 in another thread. Just to give this thread some informational value, please post what kind of exact software packages you attempt to install, what the error messages are, and how you intend to set up the local network. Setting up a renderfarm is no miracle, but it also isn't as easy as you seem to assume it.

Please provide a link to where you got help from. Or repost that info here. I would be interested in setting up a render farm on linux as well.
