An Introduction to Installing/using GNU/Linux for beginners – Lincoln 11/10/07


This meeting between the British Computer Society (BCS) Open Source Specialist Group (OSSG), BCS Lincolnshire http://lincolnshire.bcs.org, and Lincolnshire Linux User Group http://www.lincs.lug.org.uk will be held on Thursday 11th October 2007.

The format will be more that of a workshop/tutorial, and will be designed to encourage ‘hands-on’ experience of using several GNU/Linux distros (in particular Ubuntu, Debian, and Knoppix. It will also allow for exchange of information and ideas, and try to answer questions and queries about GNU/Linux, especially for those who have little or no experience. If you have a laptop with a Linux installation, please feel free to bring it along to help demonstrate, or raise questions (although we cannot guarantee to answer all questions).

Light refreshments will be available from 1830 hours before the start time of 1900 hours in the EMMTEC Building at the University of Lincoln, Brayford Pool, Lincoln LN6 7TS unless otherwise indicated. For directions click here.
