Bring your computer (desktop/laptop) and we will help you install one of the most popular Linux distribution.

Be certain to attend the pre-installation meeting the prior week (9/9) to learn about prerequisites required to make the installation trauma free. Preparation of the computer MUST be performed before attending. It cannot be performed on this day, during the install efforts, in most situations.

A liability release must be signed to get help at this event.

More information will be provided here as the date gets closer.

Expect your installation to require between 30 minutes (VM on a fast machine) and 2 hrs, if things proceed nicely.

Free Linux distros will be available. CentOS, Debian, Ubuntu (multiple flavors),Linux-Mint, Fedora, and OpenSUSE. These are suitable for VM, full-wipe, and dual boot installations. Beware that dual-boot installs have risks which may require a backup to restore any prior OS installed or to get prior OSes to boot.

Some refreshments will be available.

Experts will be available to guide installs.

This will be the 6th InstallFest that we've had at SPSU/KSU-Marietta.

Cost is $0.
