The feature presentation at the ALE Central Meeting
at 7:30pm on Thursday, August 19th, 2010 will be:
“Grepping GRUB 2”
with Michael Trausch
— GRUB 2 is the new major release family of the GNU GRUB bootloader,
which is extensively rewritten to be more feature rich, robust and portable.
GNU GRUB 2 is used by current versions of Ubuntu as the default boot
loader, and the next major release of the Debian project is adopting it as
well. It supports booting from a large number of file systems and
partition types, and can be considered an extensible boot environment
that can launch any number of operating systems. Our presentation
will look at the changes from the GRUB 1 environment and explore the
configuration and use of some of the popular new features of GRUB 2.
— Michael B. Trausch is an independent consultant performing
programming and administration services using free software.
He works from home (when everything is going well…) and rears
his 4 year old son, Benjamin. He is an advocate for free software,
and uses Ubuntu as his normal desktop environment and Ubuntu,
Debian, or *BSD on servers. Oh, and he wants to get into building
little electronic doohickeys and stuff. :-)
We will be meeting at Emory Law School in our
usual Gambrel Hall, room 1C venue.
Meeting time frame is 7:30pm to ~9:30pm
