    RE: which version of linux?!
    It depends on what you are trying to do with linux. You will have to be more specific. You said you are an electronic engineer. I have a brother-in-law that works professionally in that field :-). I am guessing you are using a particular programming language. Linux supports more popular languages. Which one are you using. Plus, you are probably using an emulator to simulate your prototypes. What kind, and I'll see if one is available for linux. Again, I don't know what you use in school, check out this link below to see if any rings a bell.

    RE: parport_pc driver parallel port detection with manually provided io ports.
    The first part in the script seems as if you were adding the driver to both the onboard parallel port and the pci port. The onboard port my have been using another driver that allowed the kernel to access it. I would leave that be. That last part of the script indicates that the kernel auto-detects what io ports )io_hi are on available and assigns the appropriate driver. You told the kernel what parport to detect rather then letting it do it itself. Seems like either would've worked. From observation ;-)

    RE: /home is 100% filled
    Can you give use a complete desciption of the jobs that you are running in your cluster? Did you create the jobs with a script or did you use an app wizard. The files that you removed may have contained information of when those jobs will stop. Back up all your files from your home folder to another storage medium. Make sure the files are accessible. Use a liveCD to boot the system and use one of the partition managers to re-size your partition giving it enough space. [url=http://gparted.sourceforge.net/]re-size using GParted[/url]

    RE: Best Linux distro for optimize battery consumption (Asus EeePC)
    I have not tried any of those distros that you mentioned. Should though :-) There is one thing that I did not mention. I have found that the newer kernel versions, 3.x.x have a tendency of consuming battery life excessively. What I would do is look for a distro that uses any kernel version marked 2.6.x. They seem to go easy on mobile battery life. Ubuntu 10.04 LTS uses such a kernel. [url=http://releases.ubuntu.com/lucid/]ubuntu 10.04 LTS[/url]

    RE: Best Linux distro for optimize battery consumption (Asus EeePC)
    If you are using the later UIs like Gnome#, or Unity, you may experience a decrees in battery life. Also, the kernel in use could have extra functions that could drain it too. Stick with Gnome@, XFCE or LXDE if you like user-friendly UI.

    RE: Welcome: Why build an open cloud?
    Another benefit to using "open" cloud standards is to keep service vendors competitive. The goal is to deliver optimal results to consumers. Vendors will need the ability to adapt to users needs and using opensource is becoming the primary way of doing that because it is not a "what you see is what you get" philosophy.
