I have not been able to get started with Bazaar in my environment. What I need is a step by step to install a central bazaar server on a Linux box and then use it in GUI mode on Windows clients. After giving the init command on my Linux box, what do I do next? How do I access from bzr explorer? My background is Perforce and I want to come as close a possible to the perforce model because I have to support a lab which knows only perforce and I need to make the transition.

Excellent >> clear to understand but a bit fast when you enter the command line, if I may suggest that you wait 3 sec before hitting the return key in order to allow the student to read again the entire command.

Thank you for your help. ;-)

Thanks! It's a long time since I used MKS Source Integrity VCS under Windows. I'm gradually picking up scraps of knowledge so I can eventually contribute more than the occasional bug report. Easy to follow webcasts really help when you are swamped with information but not with time.

Thanks for you work on this subject. I am new to the work of Ubuntu and this was helpful getting me started with the online training. I really appreciate what you have done here.

That doesnt look so hard, I am looking forward to watching the rest of this series. I'm a newbie programmer and linux user trying to understand this stuff and videos like yours help me a lot.

Nicely done - useful and informative. Glad you got there in the end and hope this marks the first of many. Such screencasts are a great way to take the edge off those scary first steps and get people ball parked and in one piece.

Educating the Open-source Community With Showmedo

Although as important as the software it supports, education and documentation are relatively neglected in the Open-source world. Coders love to code, and explaining how best to use or improve the software tends to be deferred or even sidelined.

At Showmedo we believe the community can play a vital role here and also say thanks for the tools and software that make our lives easier. If you have a piece of software you love or a programming langugage you are enthusiastic about, why not make a screencast showing others how to use it? All the stuff you wish you'd been told, the tips, tricks, insights that would have saved you time and frustration.

Screencasting is easier than you think, and we're happy to help you. You can emailus for advice or just use some of the how-to screencasts on the site. This screencasting learning-pathis a good place to start.



Showmedo's development is fairly rapid and bugs will inevitably creep in. If you have any problems please drop us a line using the contact address below. Likewise, any suggestions for improvements to the site are gratefully received.
