GNU's Not Linux: kFreeBSD and Hurd kernels for the GNU System

Details

This talk is by Michael Dorrington on the alternative kernels of kFreeBSD and Hurd to Linux for the GNU System. The talk will explain what a kernel is and its role in a system, it will explain the GNU and Linux in GNU/Linux, it will then investigate GNU/kFreeBSD and GNU/Hurd including showing them running. If you are interesting in Linux or Free Software or GNU or FreeBSD or Hurd then this talk should be of interest to you.

Michael has been using GNU/Linux for many years, and is very interested in the GNU project. The Hurd project has been of interest to him for many years too but in the last year he has actually got to use it via the Debian GNU/Hurd project. In the last year or so he also heard of the Debian GNU/kFreeBSD project and he wishes to help make Debian GNU/kFreeBSD an official architecture of the next Debian release, Squeeze.

Location

The meeting will take place at the usual time, 7pm, at the Lass O'Gowrie pub on Charles Street in Central Manchester. We will be located in the Salmon Room upstairs, although there will be people around a little earlier downstairs (probably sampling the food and drinks on offer). Just ask at the bar if you can't find us. The Lass website has full details of how to get there and the fine selection of food and drink available. The venue also provides wifi.

If you would like five minutes to tell us about something, please contact us.
