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

The 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.

Eight people were in attendance for the August meeting. Donald Newcomb brought in a old Dell Laptop to the meeting to see if the group could help him diagnose some issues he was having with the device. Our meeting location was closing for the day and we ran out of time, so the group was unable to render assistance. At Donald's last update the laptop became a brick and he decided it was time to bring the project to and end.

For the September meeting Michael Rainey will be demoing a newly created NextCloud server. He will discuss how the server was created, discuss future configurations, and provide access to the server for any SMLUG members who wish to use it.
