I need specific software for my studies or exercises, to what should I pay special regard to?
- If it is free software, normally there are no problems.
- If it is commercial software, the financing has to be clarified before.
- In general we won't distribute any software, if we think it can lead to greater problems with the rest of the systems.
- Please send software requests to the following emailaddress: email@example.com and pay attention to the upper points!
I need special software on the systems running windows, what do I need to take care of?
- We run Windows 7 Professional SP1 32bit. Please check your software for compatibility.
- If it's commercial or proprietary software, please take care of the funding and have a close look at the Terms and Conditions.
- We only install software that comes in proper packages, either MSI packages or installers with silent/unattended switches! No exceptions! If you can find the software in this list, you should be safe.
- We won't install software that needs elevated priviliges at runtime.
- Please contact us 2-3 weeks before the beginning of the semester. We only have limited resources and software distribution for windows is a mess.
There has been this software last semester, but now i can't find it. What happend?
Not all licenses for software are renewed automaticlly each semester. If there are apparently no requests for a specified software, it will not be renewed anymore. If you want to make sure, that a specific software is available next semester, you can write us an email to following address: firstname.lastname@example.org
How can I get a list of software packages, which are installed on the Unix systems?
There are two commands:
lslocal shows the available programms in
dpkg --get-selections shows the packages, which are installed on Debian.
To find a specific Debian-package, use
grep-available -P <package>. There you also can see the status, thus if it is installed or not.
