Linux User Group
Welcome to the LUG at University of Delaware. We serve Linux users who live in or around the small state of Delaware, as well as the University of Delaware Newark campus. All Linux users are welcome to our meetings and mailing lists regardless of experience or skill. Please see below to find out how to come to our meetings.
This week we had the first meeting in our cyber security series with ACM (Association for Computing Machinery). Eric McGinnis gave us an overview of computer networks and a brief introduction to Wireshark. The slides from Eric's presentation are available below.
Latest Information and News
Well as I'm on my way out the door (well officially I'm out) I'm helping the new webmaster Rob Searles upgrade the wiki. He asked for advice on how to make it easier to keep updated with news and such so I've installed the Blog plugin. I'm hoping this leads to more communication with our members.
It's been a great run, hope you all enjoy LUG and please stay in touch! I'll continue to reside in the LUG@UD IRC server for as long as people keep it running :)

LUG IRC Server
LUG@UD now is hosting it's own IRC server. The idea of this is to encourage members to talk and communicate more openly. Goto LUG IRC for more information.
Looking for Presenters
Would you like to come up and give a talk about a Linux subject that you love? Want some public speaking experience? Want a resume booster? Email me and we'll schedule a time. Some interesting meeting topics that I'd like to see include: Using GNU Screen, BIND and DNS, the Ruby language (or Ruby on Rails), GNU autotools, Subversion and why it's really nice for any project, Linux firewalls with IPtables, setting up your own postfix server, LaTeX - for all your homework and reports.
Interested in getting your hands on some Linux t-shirts, mugs, or something else? Have an idea for a design or something you want? Add your thoughts and comments to LUG Apparel.
FTP Mirror is Operational
The server is at http://mirror.lug.udel.edu Currently, we mirror debian, gentoo, slackware, sunfreeware, and ubuntu. Use us as your preferred mirror!
This site, as you may or may not have noticed, is actually a Wiki. Anyone inside the UD network can anonymously edit most pages. Those outside the network can either VPN in using the Proxy Server, or request a user/pass login combination. Click on the [Edit] link on any page to edit and submit your changes.
This is only required if you live off campus or have extended access granted.
