The Fall 2014 Installfest is November 20th, 2014
On the Commons Main Street from 12:00 PM - 4:00 PM
If you've ever wanted to try Linux but didn't know where to start, bring your computer! Additionally, we can assist you to ensure that your hardware, including wireless, fingerprint reader, and webcam, is working. At the Fall 2011 installfest, we will be installing Ubuntu version 11.04. If you would like assistance installing a different release or distribution, bring install media.
If you are bringing a laptop, bring the AC adapter / charger!
If you have more than one computer, please bring the oldest system that meets the requirements listed below, to reduce the chance of problems with drivers.
If you are bringing a desktop, then bring power cables, a monitor, keyboard, and mouse, too.
If you will be dual-booting with Windows, please defragment your C: drive before attending the installfest. This increases the maximum size of your Linux partition.
Back Up Your Data
Finally, back up your data. The LUG will make all attempts to keep your data intact, but there's always the slim chance that something will go wrong.
