Lets Join Tilde Varsh
Few weeks ago I came across this thing called a tilde on the gnulinuxindia.org website, while lurking around the web. I had zero idea about what it was about or what even is it. So in their terms it is
An India-based shared unix system which focuses on mutual development of skills and sharing of ideas. Services are secondary in this tilde, community is prime.
Still confused watch this Video
If you want to join too you can fill up this form with your email and other details here and have fun with your new UNIX system.
- Enter you username, email address of choice in the “Username” and the “You email (Need one so we can contact you):” field.
- Enter you pre-existing ssh(public)key.
- If you dont have one then lets create a new one using the following commands.
After that you would be prompted by the following:
Generating public/private rsa key pair. Enter file in which to save the key (/home/username/.ssh/id_rsa):
This will create a new file and a directory in
$XDG_HOME_DIR/.ssh. After that, you would be prompted for a password for a key. It is very important that you make a hard password since it will be used for you to login to the machine and for any other future logins
After completing you will get some form of ASCII art for confirmation.
Now copy and paste the contents of
$XDG_HOME_DIR/.ssh/id_rsa.pub to the public key field in the form.
Finally after finishing wait for ~24hrs and you will receive an email with your login credentials.
After your first login with the default credentials, change your password for your account.
REMEMBER DO NOT STORE ANYTHING PERSONAL IN THESE MACHINES AS IT IS A MULTIUSER SYSTEM
