For this month's meeting we'll be covering the topic of home labs. We'll kick things off with Nick Wolff giving a presentation about his setup followed by a round table discussion about our home labs. Whether you already have a home lab setup at your house or if you're just starting out, KnoxBUG invites you to share your thoughts and experiences.
For location details check the listing.
KnoxBUG kicked things off in 2018 with our “Happy True Year” TrueOS install fest event. It was a nice informal gathering with drinks,pizza and a great turnout. There was much tinkering and laughing. As most of us do at the beginning of a new year, we also took time to reflect on the past year and make plans for how to make this new year even better.
One of the things we discussed was a change in format. While most of our attendees have been people with a lot of BSD / Unix / FOSS experience, we’ve also had a few people that are completely new to the open source world. Our talks have all been great but have mainly catered towards expert FOSS users. We want to change that approach.
Normally I take notes and provide a summary of our meeting. This time around, we made a video recording and published it to our KnoxBUG YouTube channel! Enjoy!
KnoxBUG had the pleasure of having PacBSD's Adam Jimerson back. This time he took a deep dive on how PacBSD managed to integrate Arch Linux's package manager on top of an operating system built on top of FreeBSD's kernel and ports.
This past August, I had the pleasure of giving my first talk. The topic was Dzen. A great little utility you can find in just about any Unix like operating system that supports X11. This post will illustrate the most basic examples of how Dzen works. For more information please refer to my slides and the scripts that I posted.
I'm sorry to say things have gotten really busy this month and time has slipped away. I couldn't find anybody to book for July's meeting and the talk I was preparing is not ready, so I've decided to cancel this month's meeting. On a positive note, August's meeting has already been listed and I'll be presenting. More details here
