From Oct 1st to 3rd, the second Linuxday Luxembourgh took place, which
attracted about 260 visitors. There were many tutorials and presentations,
and also an exhibition area. I was there doing presentations on a
Video-Rendering Cluster using NetBSD, and a general introduction to The
NetBSD Project, and I also ran a NetBSD booth.
Some impressions, ideas and questions I got:
- What about Java? Enterprise Java Beans?
- People want daemon pins (which I didn't have ;) and CPU badges (which I
had, thanks to Wasabi!)
- Don't forget pins at home, and sticky tape
- If you bring T-shirts, don't forget clothes hangers
- Bring posters!
- Use some slideshow and/or animation as eye catcher
- If there are "info" points that offer all sort of flyers, add some
there for people to collect;
- Of course DO bring flyers that can be handed out.
- Friggin' trident driver in XFree 4 managed to hang my machine several
times. Had to power it down hard... and enjoy a fsck on a 30GB laptop
- I got many requests about "jails". Aparently the Linux guys like the
extra security they offer over simple chroot envs.
- I had a chance to play with a "SElinux" enhanced box. Seems pretty much
like a box mocked up with systrace, only that they added a new concept
of contexts(?) instead of using standard unix user and group handling.
- Lex Wennmacher increased the ammount of NetBSD developers present by
100% on thursday afternoon. :)
