    I made a CCNA Mind Map today, thought I would share it
    It's based on the contents of the Sybex CCNA Study guide 5th edition, so anyone using that may benefit directly, however there were some minor alterations

    not sure if any of you are familiar with mind maps, or whether or not you find them useful, but figured id let you all grab a copy anyway


    [​IMG]

    It's likely i'll make some alterations and add more relationships, as well as providing a 'further' reading section in each main topic to help you out if you find it beneficial, drop me feedback here

    Well Phoenix I am not about to do the CCNA but that is an impressive mind map. 8)

    What software did you use to create it?

    I don't know what Phoenix used but there is some open source software called FreeMind that does what he did here. It's available through the Debian depositories for those of use who use Debian-related distro's and for rpm's for SuSe 9.x and some other rpm style distro's.

    Oh, and as it's written in Java it's cross-platform software so there is a Window's version available too.

    Take a look at the link I gave in my post to Bluerinse. There's a pretty good explanation of what all is possible with mind mapping software.

    We had a look at Freemind for work, its a great product but we needed a more rounded product so got Mind Manager Pro from MindJet, has nice integration with project 2003 which is vital to us

    Freemind will save you 200 quid though :)

    Mind Mapping really is one of the best ways to make notes and revise from them.

    It makes it so much easier than reading throught reams of text.

    It's quite simple really, try doing it by hand.

    You list your core subject in the centre of the page, in this case the CCNA.

    Then coming off from the centre you list the core topics involved in the CCNA, subnetting, VLANS, IOS Commands, etc.

    Then you branch off from those subjects, so for example under IOS commands you have a link to ISDN, and then a branch to a specific ISDN command, and go from there.

    I've attached a Powerpoint, help you better understand them, I had to do a presentation on them for Uni.

    Although Phoenix's doesnt use images you can do so if you want.

    This might be an answer to getting me organized. I used to do this sort of things, but with large reams of butcher paper and a marker. I think I'll have to play around with this for awhile to get it to work for me. Thanks, all. :)

    *sigh* Naturally I have another problem with apt pinning. I followed the instructions on this page:

    http://sourceforge.net/project/shownotes.php?release_id=355162

    I modify my /etc/apt/sources.list and /etc/apt/preferences files accordingly then issue the common to install freemind. Here's what I get:

    Code:
    tripwire:~# apt-get install freemind/experimental freemind-plugins-help freemind-plugins-svg freemind-plugins-time
    Reading Package Lists... Done
    Building Dependency Tree... Done
    Selected version 0.8.0+01-4 (deb@zorglub:experimental) for freemind
    Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
    requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
    distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
    or been moved out of Incoming.
    The following information may help to resolve the situation:
    
    The following packages have unmet dependencies:

    Personaly I hate the Java run-time mess. This is supposed to be a 'portable language' but I've always had trouble. My group within my company has Java as its 'official' language. They have nightmares as well.

    For some weird reason I don't have to follow my group policy - so I use no Java at all!

    Trip,

    You can install freemind from the Debian archives using apt and it will figure out all your dependency problems. You'll probably have to add "contrib" and "non-free" to your sources.list file first though so you can install Java.

    I've had Java installed for so long I don't remember how all of it works off the top of my head. However, I did it the hard way. I installed it before it was in the apt repositories so your way of installing it will be different than mine was, and most likely a whole lot easier.

    Oh, and btw, why are you trying to install from experimental??? Install from sarge, etch, or sid and you'll have much better luck. You're bound to have broken stuff from experimental....

    I tried from sarge but it couldn't find the package. I assumed that it wasn't available.

    That's because you don't have Contrib in your sources.list file. Add it and non-free.

    Like this:
    Code:
    deb http://security.debian.org/ sarge/updates main contrib non-free

    Added
    Code:
    deb http://security.debian.org/ sarge/updates main contrib non-free
    to /etc/apt/sources.list. Did apt-get update just for giggles and then attempted to install freemind. Here's the result.
    Code:
    debian:~# apt-get install freemind
    Reading Package Lists... Done
    Building Dependency Tree... Done
    E: Couldn't find package freemind
    debian:~# apt-cache show freemind
    W: Unable to locate package freemind
    E: No packages found
    debian:~# apt-cache showpkg freemind
    W: Unable to locate package freemind
    debian:~#
    And the adventure continues. :oops:
