Green Room, Multicultural Hub, 506 Elizabeth Street, Melbourne (opposite the Queen Victoria Market)

Iit's time again for the LUV Beginners Workshop. Come along on August 21.

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

VENUE CHANGE: The Hub @ Docklands is going to be used as a polling station in the federal election. This means we won't be able to use it for the beginner's workshop.

We will instead be in the Green Room at the MultiCultural Hub.
Address: 506 Elizabeth Street, Melbourne (opposite the Queen Victoria Market)

The next workshop

Hi Linux Users,

Its a really really big chance that i missed when i missed out on Open Software Day at State library in Victoria. Is there any way I can get some of the disks from that day and some stickers. I saw the video on Youtube, it was awesome.
Please keep me posted with everything.

Also when is the next workshop.

I would love to learn about programming in unix for linux. Correct me if i am wrong. I am looking for a society where I can learn more about it. A place where i can learn because Linux has always been my passion but i never got the right opportunity but today here i am . :)
