Cygwin

I've learned quite a bit about Cygwin over the last couple months.
I could maybe put together a demo at some point.
Have we ever done a talk on Cygwin?

Re: Cygwin

I haven't felt like a part of things ever since I missed the BOD meeting at panera, so if there is someone eager to take that spot, I won't stop them. If I am needed though, I'll have to be sure to actually make it to the meeting this year.
At the very least, I'll try to make it to March's meeting unless house things get in the way.

Re: Cygwin

[quote="db"]Michael, We spoke last week about having me do a Cygwin demo. I think I could be prepared to do so at the March meeting. I may or may not ask you to setup some stuff on your linux laptop to help me out if I can't get another machine to act as the linux server for my laptop which will be booted to windows for the demo. I have taken a proposal, and a install document I have put together in the past and made about 4 slides and will be doing an extensive demo. I think I may need 45 minutes to an hour.[/quote] Sounds good - let me know if you need me to do anything on my laptop. [quote="db"] I know we have board members elections, so I want to make sure we can fit that in, but I don't think it'll be a problem. Any word yet from Mark on money for larger door prizes in March?[/quote] I haven't heard anything - we've done better door prizes at our annual meeting for several years - I don't see how it'd be a problem other than reimbursement. The elections themselves shouldn't take too much time. We have 5 volunteers, 1 maybe and haven't heard from Mark - all we need is a yes from Mark or someone else (and maybe a 2nd yes to replace Chris' maybe) and we're golden.

Re: Cygwin

Yes. Cygwin/X is the best part! Of course it will be included!

Re: Cygwin

Ooo, cygwin. I've been wrestling with that app for a while now, trying to get a useable X server going so I can run X programs from my linux servers. Is that included in this discussion, or will it just be general installation info?

Re: Cygwin

[quote="db"]Plus we don't have what you did up on Cygwin our "education" page. I'll put something together and post here when I have it done and we can work it in sometime in 2005. I noticed we are missing the March 2004 and July 2004 and August 2004 presentations, anyone remember what they were and if we can post copies? (I think there was a transgaming one, I'd like to see posted...Mark?) & what about December 2004 and January 2005...Michael? It's nice to be able to look back here to see what we did in the past so we can steer the future topics.[/quote] I'll see if I have anything from my cygwin presentation. From what i remember, it was basically a demonstration though. I'll get the January 2005 presentation up in the education section. We'll have to contact Michael Jennings about the Dec 2004 presentation (CentOS/CAOS) - I don't remember if he had any slides. March 2004: Dr. Ram Rao on HP's Linux strategy July 2004: Don Vosburg of Novell August 2004: Mark Lesh - Gaming on Linux We'd need to contact the speakers for those months to see if they have anything they'd like us to post.
