Manlug meeting April 2002

20th April 2002


Dave Gilbert


Do you use Linux? If you are a S.u.S.E or Red Hat or Mandrake person, you've probably heard of Debian; you may even have tried it. It is, as Ted T'so said recently in London, a different sort of Linux distribution; it aims to please experienced administrators rather than first-time installers. This presentation will look at some of the tools which are available within the Debian system: apt-get, apt-cache, dpkg, and the like. How is the Debian documentation different? What's available and where is it?

In keeping with the goal of helping new Linux users, I hope we can have a little hands-on session looking at simple commands. I have a little presentation (aimed at beginner).
