    Not sure. Ubuntu Desktop Edition recommends 15GB min. I bet you could get by with less, but YMMV.

    Thanks for the tip, Matt. I just blew away my virgin Ubuntu VM and started the Cogbuntu install. That seems like the most direct route. Btw, what's the smallest useful partition size the I can get away with?

    BTW, I've been planning to create a VirtualBox appliance based on CogBuntu and some extras, but I'm not sure if I'll have it ready by Saturday at this point...

    Probably not. The active OpenCog developers tend to use Ubuntu. The easiest way, by far, to get a working system is to just use CogBuntu in a virtual machine:

    ...or to run the Cogbuntu install script against an existing Ubuntu 11.x:

    If you want to try to build on Mac, the place to ask for help is the mailing list:

    I found some reference to Building OpenCog on Mac OSX Snow Leopard on the OpenCog wiki. Has anyone done this with OSX Lion?

    I didn't know that I would need to install ubuntu on my (limited disk) MacBook Air. This leaves me feeling like I need more time to prep. Given that, I could go either way. But just in case we go forward with Saturday: how big drive will I need for Ubuntu and OpenCog to function? Is there anything else I'll need to install beforehand?

    I would rather have the event postponed--both for personal scheduling reasons, and because I would prefer a more guided format. (I figure I can always stay in my cave and avoid sunlight for self-directed learning.)

    Hi all,

    It's been pointed out to me that due to RoboGames this weekend, and upcoming Finals for students, this might be bad timing for this event. I myself am feeling far less prepared than I wanted to be, so if we proceed, activities will be primarily self-directed learning in small groups, rather than formal demos.

    Would people rather postpone the event? Please let me know.

    Bah! Aside from the fact that I'm probably going to have to be outta town, I am ignorant of C++, Scheme/Lisp, or Python. Enjoy, uber nerds. Enjoy.

    Plenty of free street parking nearby on the weekends. There's also a paid parking structure next door that I've been told has been freely open on the weekend, but I've never needed it. Parking at the building itself is a few dollars an hour or ~$10 for the day.

  • Homan C.

    What is the parking situation there?

    Since these will be all-day events, would people rather pay a fee in advance to include meals, or coordinate meals ad-hoc during the weekend?

    Awesome! Thanks for getting that! If ORielly is looking for suggestions, books on C++, Python, and Machine Learning would be appropriate.

    February 6, 2012

  • Annika O.

    Also, there will be some books donated by O'Reilly that will be raffled off!
