General Meeting on Wednesday - 11 February 2015
The St. Louis Unix Users Group (SLUUG) general meetings are usually on the second Wednesday of each month.
We start the general meeting with a basic session; which may include either simple tutorials,
displays of newly discovered web sites, command line wonders, demonstrations of useful applications,
amazing graphical packages, major resolution of long standing anomalies, blinking lights,
or quantum shifts in both time and space. Then we will have our usual quick welcome, introduction,
administrative announcements, and a Questions and Answers Period.
After all that, we take a break before our main event.
The basics portion will be a Community Workshop on
Bridging Wireless to Ethernet
The exercise will be to create a Network Manager profile that can be easily selected for workshop
settings on OpenSuSE 13.2 and Gnome 3. Using a Raspberry Pi, ethernet cable, and an Envy laptop
we will collaborate as a group to create a wired network in a workshop environment.
