Welcome to South Mississippi Linux Users Group

SMLUG is a group of computer and technology enthusiasts that meets once a month to promote the free and open philosophy and to share ideas and knowledge. Linux is a free and open source operating system developed under the terms of the GNU General Public License (GPL). The GNU General Public License is intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change all versions of a program and to make sure it remains free software for all its users. If you have an interest in learning Linux as a career, or just for personal use, attend the next meeting to find out what the group has to offer.

What's happening at the meeting

There were 4 people in attendance at the meeting in April. This meeting for March will be held in the USM Library in Long Beach. The library will be open from 12pm to 4pm this month so expect the meeting to end abruptly if we're not out of there before closing time.

During the April meeting Spence Candland demonstrated how to use CGROUPS on the Linux OS.

There is no topic planned for the May meeting, so bring your topics and ideas for the meeting. Also, Michael Rainey (your BDFL) will not be attending this month's meeting, so someone will need to lead the group if needed.

SMLUG will be holding open discussions on Linux, free, and open source related topics. Member's are encouraged to share topics and projects, if possible a short hands-on demo would be informative and welcomed. Our meetings are free and open to public.
