Any interest in doing a Linux installfest at CALIcon12?

Folks,
I was wondering if there was any interest in doing a Linux installfest
on Wednesday evening at CALIcon12? I'm thinking that we could use
VMWare's VirtualBox (https://www.virtualbox.org/) on whatever laptop
folks bring along to provide a host environment for one of the popular
Linux distros. Using VirtualBox would get around needing a dedicated
PC or having to do things like partition hard drives.

What do you think?

Thanks,
Elmer.

Well, I think the linux adoption curve has either stalled or played out.
And this individual needs little incentive to drink. However, mixing tech
and adult beverages is appealing... so fine I'll come.

PS

Mixing adult beverages and *dangerous* tech is even better. So if somebody
will bring a dremmel, we can see how fast the linux install cd's will spin
before they explode...BYO eye protection...

Linux at home ...

All this talk of Linux reminded me of a question I've tabled for a few weeks …

I may be personally diving back into Linux after a VERY long hiatus. I'm looking at a linux based DLNA server for home to talk to an assortment of things including: Sony blu-ray player, iOS, Android (ICS), and Windows 7 devices.

Anyone have a favorite linux distro for this purpose… a favorite DLNA server?

I was looking at Unbuntu with MediaTomb (http://mediatomb.cc/). I recently stumbled upon debian-based Dreamlinux (http://www.dreamlinux.info). Any thoughts or hints are welcome.

Best,

Phil

Linux at home ...

I've been using FOXCONNs version of LINUX with NAVI but their
repository is down and I may try the UBUNTU with MediaTomb.

Linux at home ...

That reminds me...
I've been running MediaTomb on Ubuntu for about 6 months or so. I've
only used the basic features, but it seems to work well. One of these
fine days I'm going to to take a look at some of the more interesting
things it can do like import YouTube playlists and channels,
transcoding, and remote access to the library.

Elmer.

You know I'm always up for an installfest, especially now that Chapman
isn't coming, and so the trip to Tijuana is off...
