openSUSE 11.4 Release Party

We are planning a community release party this coming Thursday, March 17, 2011 to celebrate the 11.4 release.  We are planning on having some media and usb thumb drives for anyone that would like to install 11.4.

This time we are changing the location a little.  We are still having the party on Novell’s Provo campus, but in one of the executive briefing rooms building H which is the tall south most building.

Everyone is welcome.  If you are planning on coming please let us know by sending me an email sshaw ]at[ decriptor ]dot[ com.  We are hoping to have food and swag to give away.

Here is the poster we threw together.  The artwork was provided by someone in the community and the poster was put together by my awesome wife.



Linux Fall Release Install Party

I’m at the Linux Distro Release party right now and testing out the new ubuntu 7.10. Don’t worry fellow opensuse users, just because Novell laid me off doesn’t mean I’m going to move to ubuntu. So far we’ve had a great turn out and we’re still installing. We have had everything from opensuse to ubuntu to fedora to mac osx 10.5 to openbsd. That’s what we have had people bring.

So with my attempt to install ubuntu 7.10 on my mac book pro I ended up killing my boot information. For some reason refit didn’t work right (or more likely I didn’t know what I was doing) and now I need to go back and try and fix that. Back to the install fest. Hopefully pictures to follow.

A thanks to Herlo for helping put this together and Open Source Technology Center @ Novell for providing space.
