This server (running Linux, of course) is managed by members of east coast USA Linux user groups. It was formerly known as wauug.erols.com and linux.wauug.org. We hope you enjoy your visit.
The next DCLUG/LUGMAN free Linux InstallFest , is tentatively scheduled for Saturday, March 28th, 1998 at USUHS in Bethesda, Maryland.
We hold LinuxFests 3-4 times a year, usually in Bethesda, but are interested in sites in Virginia as well. If you would be willing to provide organizational or technical help, or are willing to bring some nice Ethernet hubs or switches, please send mail to the LinuxFest Organizers. Our next effort will likely have more demos and more focus on configuring and upgrading existing Linux machines.
Daily mirrors of key parts of sunsite and tsx-11, packages from numerous smaller harder-to-find Linux FTP sites, and a growing number of packages which originate from this server, can be found in our anonymous FTP area.
If you develop Linux packages or free software that runs on Linux and need a distribution site for Web and FTP, let us know and we'll see what we can do for you.
BLEEDING EDGE KERNELS: Linux v2.1 development kernels and patches are flown in several times a day fresh from Finland (ahem, make that California), for the convenience of hackers who want the very latest kernels right away. NOTE: being a development series, 2.1 kernels often require extra effort and expertise on your part. If you don't enjoy debugging, stick to the safer, more conservative 2.0 kernels.
Linux v2.0 kernels and patches are also mirrored straight from the source. Use v2.0 for a stable, tested kernel.
See the Linux v2 Information Headquarters for a wealth of kernel development information.
