2005 and Future Plans for Computerbank, Kylie Davies

2005 was one of Computerbank's biggest years. They sent more than 400 computers out to community groups and individuals (both in Victoria and overseas), provided more than 400 hours of Linux end user training, and increased their revenue by over 100%. Find out more and future plans..

Security Embedded Linux in Fedora Core 5, Russell Coker

Security-Enhanced Linux (SELinux) is an implementation of mandatory access control using Linux Security Modules (LSM) in the Linux kernel, based on the principle of least privilege. Fedora Core 5 is the latest RPM-based Linux distribution, developed by the community-supported Fedora Project, sponsored by Red Hat. Find out how to put (a) into (b).

Future Talks (THIS IS IMPORTANT, READ OR FAIL!)

We are always in need of talks, particularly when schedules change and a speaker is suddenly unable to make an arranged talk. If you have something Linux related that you want to present a talk about, whether it be for this coming meeting or future meetings, contact luv-ctte@luv.asn.au with the details.

Folks, a LUG's worth is directly proportional to the efforts of it's members.
Stand up and get active. Now.
THIS MEANS YOU!

Next meeting will have Matthew Wright from the Australian Greens discussing their use of Linux and Craig Wiley from Novell. Yes, you read that right.

Have you noticed that we've had next month's speaker announced a month in advance for two consecutive meetings now?

Once Again

When

Tuesday, 2nd May 2006
7:00pm to 9:00pm

Where

The Buzzard Lecture Theatre
Evan Burge Building
Trinity College Main Campus
Parkville
Melways Map: 2B C5

Notes: Trinity College's Main Campus is located off Royal Parade. The Evan Burge Building is located near the Tennis Courts. Maps of Trinity and the surrounding area (including its relation to the city) can be found at: http://www.trinity.unimelb.edu.au/map/

Parking can be found along or near Royal Parade, Grattan Street, Swanston Street and College Crescent. Parking within Trinity College is unfortunately only available to staff. If you are interested in coming to dinner afterwards, it may be advisable to park on the Swanston St side of Melbourne University.

For those coming via Public Transport, the number 19 tram (North Coburg - City) passes by the main entrance of Trinity College (around stop 12). The city end of this tram departs from the Elizabeth Street tram terminus (Flinders Street end). Timetables can be found on-line at http://www.metlinkmelbourne.com.au/timetables/timetable_options.php?type=tram&id=MTM019

Socialising

Before and/or after each meeting those who are interested are welcome to join other members for dinner. We are open to suggestions for a good place to eat near our new venue. Lygon Street is a short walk away, and seems a likely direction to head after the meeting.

The other option is the pub across the road from Trinity.

The pubs food is not _bad_ but the attraction is really the cheap beer.

Did I mention cheap beer? I think I need to mention cheap beer. CH34P B33R!

LUV would like to acknowledge Red Hat for their help in obtaining the Buzzard Lecture Theatre venue!
