What!

BASE: BSD's Kinky Boots process

by Brian Bilgere

This will be a quick introduction and comparison of Unix/Linux boots.

Well, something called Kinky Boots. No, not the musical play at The Muny but rather a look at BSD's booting process vs Linux's GRUB2 boot process.

This session might show factors common with both personal and enterprise computing.

MAIN: Managing system backups with GIT

by Lee Lammert

Many folks don't use git to manage systems because git is thought to be complicated, ...this presentation will refute that theory and show how simple it actually is to backup your system configuration (and anything else) with git!

Information from Wikipedia:

Git is a distributed version-control system for tracking changes in source code during software development. It is designed for coordinating work among programmers, but it can be used to track changes in any set of files. Its goals include speed, data integrity, and support for distributed, non-linear workflows.

Git was created by Linus Torvalds in 2005 for development of the Linux kernel, with other kernel developers contributing to its initial development. Its current maintainer since 2005 is Junio Hamano.

As with most other distributed version-control systems, and unlike most client server systems, every Git directory on every computer is a full-fledged repository with complete history and full version-tracking abilities, independent of network access or a central server.

Git is free and open-source software distributed under the terms of the GNU General Public License version 2.

SLUUG Sponsored meetings in the STL Metro Area

Monthly Meetings

We open the room for the general meeting about 6:00 PM. Then we start at 6:30 PM with our BASE introductory level session (usually focused on personal computing); which may include either amazing graphical packages, blinking lights, command line wonders, demonstrations of useful applications, displays of newly discovered web sites, major resolution of long standing anomalies, quantum discoveries, superb tutorials, or shifts in both time and space.

Sometime after 7:00 PM we get to a quick welcome, introductions, announcements, current events of interest, and a general CALL FOR HELP (Questions and Answers) segment.

Sometime after 7:30 PM, we may take a short break before our MAIN topic (usually focused on enterprise computing),

All of our meetings are free and open to the public. There is no individual membership fee.
