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.

January 8th Meeting - VMware

Sun, 2008-12-14 14:09

In January, we will welcome Justin Parker into the LUG in the harshest way we know how... by inviting him to be a speaker.

Justin recently moved to the Triangle. His previous job was with VMware, one of the pioneers of virtualization. He will give us an overview of virtualization, and the features of the various VMware products. And he will guide us through setting up a virtual server. All of this, he says, without trying to sound too much like a "fanboy".

Slides available here (OpenOffice ODP format).

December 11th Meeting - Holiday Social

Fri, 2008-11-21 16:47

Following the TriLUG tradition, the December meeting will be a social event, with no formal program. Members and friends are invited to gather, eat, and blow each other to bits (in bzflag or any other game of your choice).

Dinner will be potluck. Bring a dish to share. Sign up on the wiki.

October 9th Meeting - Linux at NASA

Tue, 2008-09-23 10:04

Robert Singleterry, a researcher from NASA Langley Research Center will be speaking on his discovery of open source software in his quest to study space radiation.

Robert will discuss the trials and tribulations of a Student / GPC / EI International / Grad Student / ANL-W / NASA engineer, and his trip from sole source software to the open source world. There were mountains to climb, holes to watch out for, and eventually smooth sailing ahead for this engineer's usage of open source software at NASA, all while doing his real job of space radiation research.

Have you ever wanted to run a bare-bones Linux system? One that is smaller than your normal desktop or server distro? Does DSL (Damn Small Linux) seem bloated and bulky to you?
