Iit's time again for the LUV Beginner's Workshop. Come along on May 15.

We will have Rob Brittain talking about his experience with community groups.

In addition, we intend to cover things like:

  • How should you partition your machine? Should you use LVM?
  • installing various linux distributions;
  • tweaking and configuring your system;
  • automatic backups;
  • home networking, including wireless;
  • setting up specific applications;
  • using specific applications;
  • the Linux problem you're having

And this month we will also hold a Drupal Melbourne code sprint in the Long Room.
