9/2013 Linux SIG

Linux SIG – September 16, 2013

We had a lively August meeting and debugged Carl’s hardware to finally get it booting to a live DVD. At the August FOSS-SIG meeting we installed Peppermint Linux4 and all the latest updates. Carl seemed pleased with the results.

Demoed CrunchBang and Elementary OS Luna at this meeting.
