Welcome to the TriLUG home page. We are a LUG dedicated to the Triangle area including Durham, Raleigh, Chapel Hill, and Research Triangle Park. This site, along with our wiki, will enable you to keep abreast of TriLUG information (meetings, events, news), and to communicate with local Linux and FOSS (Free and Open Source) enthusiasts.

The primary modes of interacting with us: mailing list, IRC, or coming to the monthly meetings.

December TriLUG Meeting - Holiday Social and Food Drive

Please join us December 14, 2006 at Red Hat for our annual Holiday Social/Potluck. Take this time to catch up with TriLUG friends, play a few rounds of BZ Flag, and generally have a good time. This event is a potluck, so bring desserts, hot food, wings, whatever to share with friends.

We'll also be collecting non-perishable foods to benefit the Raleigh Rescue Mission so bring some canned, dry, and other goods, but let's leave the Ramen at home this year. :-)

Questions/comments/high praise go to the Contact TriLUG form.

FYI: There appears to be an issue with how IE7 handles DTD's that causes the feed to be unreadble in that browser. As always, we recommend NOT using IE*.

Podcast of November 2006 Meeting

The first official TriLUG podcast of a meeting is available now. The sound isn't as good as I'd like, but as production continues, we'll try to work out the kinks.

Ogg file: trilug-nov2006.ogg

This content will also be available in a patent-bound ball of litigation-ready fuzz (m4a) on the iTunes Music Store later today.

Comments and suggestions can be sent to Matt Frye.

November 2006 Meeting - Seth Vidal on yum

Please join us this Thursday the 9th of November at 19:00 sharp (don't be late or you'll miss the free pizza!) at RH hq (map and directions) for another great TriLUG meeting!

Seth Vidal ( blog.sethdot.org ), the maintainer of yum ( fedora wiki entry ), will give a talk.

Yum is a package management tool for rpm-based systems. It supports multiple architectures, multiple repositories and multiple
interfaces. Yum is widely used with Fedora Core, Centos, Yellowdog and other linux distributions. In the last year and a half Yum has gradually evolved a much more programmable library interface which has promoted a myriad of interfaces and tools, as well as a plugin
interface to allow users to easily add functionality to yum without modifying the source of the yum program, which has afforded more flexibility for systems administrators and end users in upgrading their systems.
