    Something came up, so I was editing a document well past 7:30pm. I couldn't have gotten there until well after 8pm, so maybe I'll catch y'all next month.

    Is anyone into portable linux devices? For example, some of my current gadgets are Tronsmart T428 (RK3188) chip-set. Comes with Android but managed to get Ubuntu 13.04 on it. Have done countless USB PenDrivelinux.com distos, OpenWrt and in process trying to get Ubuntu running on Samsung Note 3.

    Just wondering if it's just me.

      Actually, I've been wondering myself how Linux or Ubuntu would run on these new Windows 8 preinstalled Touch Screen hybrid tablet laptops like the new Thinkpad Ultrabooks, and dualboot on them or even better a way to clone the partitiion, live in Ubuntu / Linux and when I need to run software for work like Office 360 just pop up a Oracle Virtual Box with my preinstalled Windows 8 image, any ideas or solutions on this? :-)

    • Wilson B.

      I know that a derivative of Ubuntu works best for that type of hardware. I think it has touch screen support.

    Good

    Stupid random question: In linux Ubuntu 13 Firefox will not run any videos on websites hosting with Amazon nor Brightcove, anybody got a easy fix? :-/

    January 6, 2014

  • David W.

    OK, so I will have to meetup next month. I have too much to do right now and cannot take the time this evening. I do look forward to meeting in February.

      I won't be making it either; not because of prior commitments but I'm way too wimpy for this cold weather.

      January 6, 2014

    • shane a.

      I on the other hand apperently let the cold weather freeze my brain which lead to going all the way to the WRONG WATERLOO standing around, trying to figure out what happened, and like stupid 15 mins later finding out I'm at the wrong location!!!!!!

      January 6, 2014

  • shane a.

    I went to the wrong Waterloo on N Burnet ! Turning around to hit MEdical from Burnet! RUNNING LATE!!!

    Seeking answers to finding ready to go Linux distros to install on refurbished computers I'm giving away and selling to newbies. Got friends and family looking to defect from Windows and Mac! Hooray! Thank you. :-D

    So I'd like to go but is there going to be a talk or are we drinking or what's the deal?

    Anybody have any experience debugging suspend/resume? I'm running a new kernel [masked]) in an old distribution (Ubuntu 10.04 LTS) on even older h/w (Intel DX38BT, 2008 vintage), but have so far been unable to get resume to work. Hibernate/thaw works fine (and that is what I have been doing), but it is lousy to have to hibernate in lieu of suspend-to-ram. I'd welcome any suggestions anyone might have!

      With my Acer Aspire 5515, I've had trouble getting either sleep/hibernate/shutdown­ to work. I was turned on to REISU[O|B] to shutdown or reboot. Still working on sleep/ hibernate either activate or resume. It's probably hardware.

      January 6, 2014

    • Vikram

      Whoa, that sounds like an even more deep-seated problem if even shutdown doesn't work. Have you tried upgrading to a current distribution?For me, I know it's not hardware because my dual-boot WinXP can suspend/resume just fine. Plus, I had Fedora 9 way back on this same system, which would also suspend/resume just fine on kernel 2.6.2x. Confounds me as to what it is about Ubuntu that's causing it to not work. Even REISUB isn't an option for me after resume, since there is no keyboard. I have to hit hard reset.

    Looks like I won't be able to make it tonight after all, as my evening commitments have really stacked up this week. Thanks for organizing and keeping the meetup going, Bob.

    I'll definitely be able to make it next month, and I'd be up for doing a Vagrant and/or Docker presentation if there's interest and it hasn't been covered already.

    January 6, 2014

  • David B.

    Sorry, can't make it tomorrow after all. The new location works fine for me.

    January 5, 2014

  • Wilson B.

    Will try and make it... its just to far south now.. cheers

    January 1, 2014

    • Matthew W.

      Hah! I feel like the new location is excellent, well below the "too far north" threshold.

      January 5, 2014

    • Kent

      I live way north but work way south, so I can catch it on the way home. It will actually allow me a break from traffic.

      January 5, 2014

  • Kent

    Hey Wilson, how's it going? Maybe we'll finally run into each other again, lol.

    Forgive my newbie request. I'm not well versed in Linux but have been trying to secure several servers at work for the last 6 months as a new admin. Could someone talk about how to effectively use httpd.conf file or how to automate the daily security check?

  • Don J.

    Been there several times, as good as North location, hoping for East room instead of South room which has a Very long table.

    The problem with this place is they sometimes will book more than one group at a time. So beware.
