Infoxchange, 33 Elizabeth St. Richmond

PLEASE NOTE NEW DATE due to the Easter holiday

Lev will offer a tutorial and demonstration on compiling software from source code.  This is useful when you need something not already packaged by your distribution, you need a newer version than is currently packaged, or to select your own configuration or make your own changes.

Lev Lafayette is the HPC and Training Officer at the University of Melbourne. Prior to that he worked at the Victorian Partnership for Advanced Computing (VPAC) in a similar role for several years.  Since 2006 he has done a few things for LUV as well.


There will also be the usual casual hands-on workshop, Linux installation, configuration and assistance and advice. Bring your laptop if you need help with a particular issue. This will now occur BEFORE the talks from 12:30 to 14:00. The talks will commence at 14:00 (2pm) so there is time for people to have lunch nearby.

The meeting will be held at Infoxchange, 33 Elizabeth St. Richmond 3121 (enter via the garage on Jonas St.) Late arrivals, please call (0421) 775 358 for access to the venue.

LUV would like to acknowledge Infoxchange for the venue.

Linux Users of Victoria Inc., is an incorporated association, registration number A0040056C.
