Linux InstallFest - College of Engineering, Pune

When and Where

10am, 31st July 2010, FOSS Lab, Dept of Electronics and Telecommunication (Extn. Building), COEP, Pune, INDIA

Who Can Attend

  • Newbies and First Year students willing to adopt Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) as their academic/intellectual religion.
  • Curious People!
  • Anyone else willing to explore Linux

Do I have to Format My Whole Disk?

Not at all. But, backup your important data..just in case. Also, contrary to a false belief, Windows and Linux can co-exist (dual-boot) but its always appreciated to have an exclusive Linux box, all to yourself!

What Should I Bring?

If you have a laptop and wish to install Linux on it, then its always better to bring it. We have enough power supply slots and LAN ports at the venue. If you wish to install on a desktop system, special provision shall be made for you so that you get a hands on experience of installation. Installation Manuals and Installation Media (CDs) will be provided FREE of cost to those who require them.

Agenda (Chronologically)

  • A brief introduction to Linux
  • Choose your flavour
  • Distribution of Fedora LiveMedia, Ubuntu discs, Manuals and some cool stuff ;-)
  • Installation
  • Post-installation customization
  • Have fun with your Tux box!
