Forum .LRN Q&A: Re: e-lane distro
I was playing aroung with the the class creation in your instance, and looks like a permisions problem to me.
its tying to create the rss directory when adding the news applet to the new community , so please check the owner and permission for /usr/local/www/yourdomain/dotlrn211-elane/. Permisions should be 755 ( chmod -R 755 ) and the owner should be the user that you are using for runing your service.
Gradient is good but hw reqrmts are too much for some of my initial deployments. Are you planning to tie e-lane in with Gradient, now or at some other point? I know someone had told me to just use the VMware version. Actually, I/ve load both dotlrn VMWare files and I can do more (install other packages that I need) with the e-lane 05-10-12 LiveCD version.
I need the e-lane LiveCD site back up, please. Plus I discovered on Friday night that: Edubuntu, Gutsy, 7.10 has both dotlrn and oacs as packages that can be installed via synaptic.
fyi.... the http://e-lane.org/pub Message Says:

I uploaded the iso last night to: http://jmnp.net/knoppix-elane_EN_2005-10-12.iso so I would be able to point others to it.
I still find the e-lane to be a viable solution for the classroom or individual user with limited access to a server grade computer, limited access to the Internet and or lack of comfort with installing debian and the dotlrn.
I did discover, last Friday that the Edubuntu Gutsy 7.10 has dotlrn, oacs and moodle scripts in the Internet package repository. I selected them both for installation and I think it got confused, so neither one of them worked, when the script was done. But, I'm very glad to see that they are in there.
