Welcome to the TriLUG home page. We are a LUG dedicated to the Triangle area including Durham, Raleigh, Chapel Hill, and Research Triangle Park. This site, along with our wiki, will enable you to keep abreast of TriLUG information (meetings, events, news), and to communicate with local Linux and FOSS (Free and Open Source) enthusiasts.

The primary modes of interacting with us: mailing list, IRC, or coming to the monthly meetings.

July 14 meeting - AirPrint and mDNS

Fri, 2011-06-24 10:19

When: Thursday, July 14th, 7pm
Where: Red Hat HQ, NCSU Centennial Campus
Map: http://www.redhat.com/about/contact/ww/americas/raleigh.html

Zero configuration networking allows machines on a network to publish their capabilities for others to use, without requiring an administrator to specifically list those services in a directory.

TriLUG member Jym Williams-Zavada will be taking a look at two zeroconf services, AirPrint and mDNS. Both of these technologies were introduced by Apple, and now they are gaining support on other platforms as well.

Where: Red Hat HQ, NCSU Centennial Campus
Map: http://www.redhat.com/about/contact/ww/americas/raleigh.html

Android has taken the mobile market by storm, in part due to its open source nature (did you know it is based on the Linux kernel?). However, Android development has had to walk a delicate line between developers demanding openness and the established mobile industry that prefers to lock everything down.

Exciting times are at hand!

As one might guess from the subject of this announcement, the TriLUG Steering Committee is unleashing its first experiment in the realm of data and demographics. We have carefully crafted our inaugural online survey, one which we hope will reveal who our constituents are and how they feel about TriLUG.

March 10 meeting - High Availability, Low Dollar Load Balancing

Tue, 2011-02-15 13:42

Synposis: True high availability load balancing traditionally involves specialized, expensive hardware and software. However, you can build advanced, high availability configurations without a single point of failure using nothing but open source tools and commodity hardware. This talk will include a discussion of several tools, configurations, and advantages and disadvantages thereof. All tools involved are 100% free and open source.

February 10 meeting - Hacking with Backtrack and Metasploit

Sun, 2011-01-30 14:09

When we deploy Linux servers on the Internet, they are exposed to the entire world, and they may be vulnerable to attacks. How can we know that they are secure?

As part of the security team at SAS, Ryan Linn tests systems against vulnerabilities, and he recommends ways to mitigate the risks. The tools that he uses are open source, and very sophisticated.

New SSL certificates for web & mail

Mon, 2011-01-17 23:38

It's that time of year again. We have regenerated our SSL certificates for our web and mail servers. Most people will notice this when their email client tries to connect to "mail.trilug.org" (which is the server name that you should use). It will warn that the certificate has changed. The new mail certificate fingerprints are:

SHA1 = 92:8A:60:97:6C:A9:37:C7:67:E4:A7:65:92:2E:06:65:64:CD:A0:5F
MD5 = DF:00:29:BB:0D:99:6F:BA:58:06:0A:86:9E:DD:9D:CB

Accept no imitations.

LUG Organizational Choices, Summary, 13 January 2011

Sun, 2011-01-16 18:27

Ten years ago, TriLUG started operating as a North Carolina non-profit
corporation, in order to accept hardware and monetary donations, in turn
re-donating to schools and local LUGs, acting as an incubator for promoting
Linux. Over time, Linux has become more mainstream, is accepted in the
business world, and even used at schools. TriLUG's mission has therefore
changed accordingly, to become more of an educational and social group for
technology and Open Source. Although we're still devoted to education and
outreach, our income and expenses are now related to pizza and meetings.

January 13 meeting - RAID, LVM, LUKS

Sun, 2011-01-02 16:11

In the Linux kernel, the "device mapper" serves as a generic framework to map one block device onto another. It forms the foundation of software RAID, Logical Volume Manager, and LUKS disk encryption. In this instructional presentation, the LUG's own Alan Porter will show how to use these three device mapper facilities.
