Linux Configuration Workshop

  • We are a not-for profit, vendor independent group. We help computer users with their old and new hardware issues and software configuration problems.
  • We often hold a Linux Configuration Workshop when nothing else more interesting comes up, or when there is no other event or activity scheduled.
  • Linux is an Internet capable Networking Operating System that provides many fully functional applications that perform well on both older and new computers. Most Linux distributions are free or low cost and provides an extremely reliable and cost effective alternative to high priced proprietary software.
  • The workshop is where we usually examine, fix, repair, and troubleshoot difficult hardware and software configuration problems for Linux newcomers. Problems with other operating systems and hardware are also frequently fixed. We have full connectivity to the Internet on site and know how to use it.
  • Bring your laptop or desktop PC to our hands on workshop to troubleshoot your Linux installation, network connection or X Window GUI configuration problem.
  • Just remember to bring your laptop and power strip or your desktop PC with monitor, keyboard, mouse, cables, cords, power strips and two discs or a flash thumbdrive.
  • For newcomers, we can evaluate your hardware and current Operating System setup. If we determine there is sufficient time, we can perform a complete functioning Linux installation.

    Monthly Meetings

    We usually meet on the first Thursday of every month.

    Founded in 1976, we are a non-machine specific and non-Operating System (OS) specific users group.

    All hardware, operating systems and software are explored. New software tools are often demonstrated. This group welcomes all PC user hardware and software configuration problems because it is fun to fix them. Help with Unix, BSD, Linux, other Operating Systems and hardware problems is usually available. So, please join us at our next meeting or event for fun, knowledge and networking.
