Monthly Meetings are held on the second Tuesday of the month. This meeting will be on November 8th at 6:30pm at the ITT Tech Harrisburg Campus.
Seth Jerome, one of the original CPLUG members will be giving a talk and running a lab on LinuxMCE (http://linuxmce.com). Bring your laptop, and Seth continues:
And a network cable, preferably at least 12ft. Otherwise we’ll be sitting in each others laps.
I will send another message regarding this meeting to ask all who plan on attending to speak up, so as that I can create the diskless images in advance.
I will be asking the people who wish to connect to the core server to provide the following if you can:
1. first name
2. type of video card on your laptop/netbook
- as root or use sudo
- #lspci -v|grep VGA
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 82Q963/Q965 Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 02) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])
- or perhaps you just know. Nvidia cards will be no issue, you can use the full UI, however ATI and Intel chipsets we may be stuck with UI1. Which is not a bad thing, just not as sweet.
3. the MAC address of your network card, the wired one.
- #ifconfig|grep HWaddr
should return something like:
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:1c:c4:f1:c0:f5 <— this is the address
4. Please visit LinuxMCE on the web. Perhaps viewing the main page/forums/wiki you may have some questions for me.
Can’t wait to see you all again.
If you don’t have an Ethernet cable, there may be a few extras available. If you have extras, please bring them. You can contact Seth through the mailing list at email@example.com.
