This is the manual for the Debian Edu 11 Bullseye release.

The version at http://wiki.debian.org/DebianEdu/Documentation/Bullseye is a wiki and updated frequently.

= About Debian Edu and Skolelinux =

Debian Edu aka Skolelinux is a Linux distribution based on Debian
providing an out-of-the box environment of a completely configured
school network.

The chapters about [[DebianEdu/Documentation/Bullseye/Requirements|hardware and network requirements]] and about the [[DebianEdu/Documentation/Bullseye/Architecture|architecture]] contain basic environment details.

After installation of a main server all services needed for a school network are set up and the system is ready to be used. Only users and machines need to be added via GOsa², a comfortable Web-UI, or any other LDAP editor. A netbooting environment using PXE has also been prepared, so after initial installation of the main server from CD, Blu-ray disc or USB flash drive all other machines can be installed via the network, this includes "roaming workstations" (ones that can be taken away from the school network, usually laptops or netbooks) as well as PXE booting for diskless machines like traditional thin clients.

Several educational applications like !GeoGebra, Kalzium, KGeography, GNU Solfege and Scratch are included in the default desktop setup, which can be extended easily and almost endlessly via the Debian universe.

=== Some history and why two names ===

[[http://www.skolelinux.org|Skolelinux]] is a Linux distribution created by the Debian Edu project. As a [[https://wiki.debian.org/DebianPureBlends|Debian Pure Blends]] distribution it is an official [[https://www.debian.org|Debian]] subproject.

What this means for your school is that Skolelinux is a version of Debian providing an out-of-the box environment of a completely configured school-network.

The Skolelinux project in Norway was founded on July 2nd 2001 and about the same time Raphaël Hertzog started Debian-Edu in France. Since 2003 both projects are united, but both names stayed. "Skole" and (Debian-)"Education" are just two well understood terms in these regions.

Today the system is in use in several countries around the world.
