ALE @ KSU-Marietta - Intro to Linux Installation

Sat, 09 Sept. 2017 10:00 - 12:00 EDT

This is a placeholder for the pre-InstallFest meeting at KSU-Marietta.

Primary goal is to provide steps for students to prepare their computers for installations of Linux in either a dual-boot or virtual machine setup.

As time allows, we will go over a little about Linux, show some applications, servers, and other capabilities like remote access, VPN use, and a little automation.

Things which must be performed BEFORE installing Linux - which must be performed before coming to the installfest on 9/16.

• Backups (always required before major changes)

• Defragmentation (Windows defrag)

• Hardware Checks (know the CPU, RAM, GPU)

• Free Storage requirements (15G min. 25G is comfortable)

• Available Partitions required (Need at least 2)

• CPU and RAM requirements for Virtualization (C2D or better w/ 4G or more RAM)

We will have HW questionnaires and have experts available to help pick which method and distribution would be the best choice for each attendee.

Cost $0
