Ok folks - as usual this is posted at least 2-3 days late. A very bad habit of mine to do things in the very last minute - but here goes and hopefully I can learn to do this with time to spare next month.
I've looked at the many topics that was suggested for our meetings on "The ABC of Linux" as I've come to think of it. Here's the list organized into some manageble categories. I'll like to kick off tomorrow's meeting with an overview of the topics and it's my hope that those who show up can weigh in on how we do this.
I'll bring an old desktop and prepare to talk about computers tomorrow - or rather the most common components of a traditional boot of Linux which will cover Grub, initrd (initramfs), the kernel, and initscripts. The point here is to set the foundation for the more detailed presentations to come. Who should talk about what - well, speak up folks :)
Grub / lilo
initrd / initramfs
Basic Linux Commands
Loop Devices – loopback mounts
Security Applications (??)
What is a process?
What is a thread?
RPM / DEP
How to create/setup your own yum repo mirror (Fedora/RHEL/Centos)
