Boston Linux Meeting reminder tomorrow, December 16, 2015 - Introduction to Ceph and Architectural Overview

When: December 16, 2015 7PM (6:30PM for Q&A)
Topic: Introduction to Ceph and Architectural Overview + a quick SC 15
update
Moderator: Federico Lucifredi
Location: MIT Building E-51, Room 335


### Please note that Wadsworth St. is now open ###

Summary

Distributed object store and file system

Abstract

Ceph is an open source distributed object store, network block
device, and file system designed for reliability, performance, and
scalability. It runs on commodity hardware, has no single point of
failure, and is supported in the Linux kernel.

This talk will describe the Ceph architecture, share its design
principles, and discuss how it can be part of a cost-effective, reliable
cloud stack.

The de-facto standard for OpenStack storage, Ceph is leading the
rising tide of Software-defined-Storage.


Bio

Federico Lucifredi is The Ceph Storage Product Management Director
at Red Hat, formerly the Ubuntu Server PM at Canonical, and the Linux
"Systems Management Czar" at SUSE.


Additionally Kurt Keville will give a short SC15 overview at 7:00PM


For further information and directions please consult the BLU Web site
http://www.blu.org
Please note that there is usually plenty of free parking in the E-51
parking lot at 2 Amherst St, or directly on Amherst St.

After the meeting we will adjourn to the official after meeting meeting
location at The Cambridge Brewing Company

Boston Linux and Unix InstallFest LVIII Saturday December 5, 2015

Boston Linux Installfest LVIII
When: Saturday December 5, 2015, from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm
Where: MIT Building E-51, Room 061
2 Amherst St, Cambridge
Plenty of free parking in the parking lot in front of E-51.
http://mitiq.mit.edu/mitiq/directions_%20parkinge51.htm

What you need to bring: Your computer, monitor, power strips and your
Linux distributions. We do have copies of some distributions.
In general we have expertise with most distros, but if you need special
expertise, please email the BLU discussion list in advance. Today, most
distros are using Live CDs that you can try out and then install.
Additionally, CD images can be pushed onto USB sticks using various USB
creators.

COST: It's free! However, we DO have expenses, and contributions are
welcome. Please consider contributing $25 per machine.

Our volunteers will help you to install Linux on your own system. While
Linux runs on most systems, some systems do have configurations and
hardware that may not be supported. Please consult the following web
pages for hardware compatibility. While we prefer you to bring your own
distros, our volunteers will normally have

Linux Howto Pages: http://tldp.org/HOWTO/HOWTO-INDEX/howtos.html
Linux Frequently Asked Questions: http://tldp.org/docs.html#faq
Additionally, there are forums and listservs for most distros.

Generally our volunteers have sets of the latest Fedora, SuSE and
Ubuntu distributions:
* Fedora - http://fedora.redhat.com (Fedora 23 Live DVD/USB)
* Open SuSE - http://opensuse.org (OpenSuSE 13.2 - DVD/Live CD/)
* Ubuntu - http://www.ubuntu.com ( 14.04.3 LTS or 15.10 DVD/USB)


We generally have them on local drives and can burn CDs/DVDs and
USBs.Since there are many variants of these distros, we advise you to
bring an empty USB stick with sufficient memory to hold one of the
distros. LiveCD images required under 1GB, full DVD images for Fedora
require about 4GB, and OpenSuSE needs 8GB. I usually have some USBs
prepared.

We generally have both a Wired and Wireless network available. The
wireless SSID at MIT is "MIT".


In addition, you can run Linux on your Windows PC through a virtual
machine manager, such as Virtualbox. You can install this in your
Windows machine and run Linux as a guest OS, or install it in your Linux
machine and run Windows as a guest. VirtualBox 5.0.2.
(http://www.virtualbox.org.) is free and is available for Linux, Windows
10, Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows XP and Windows Vista. Additionally,
there are also
some VMWare clients that are also free for Windows.

Lunch is generously sponsored by Bluefin Technical Services, John Ross
and Ron Thibeau

Please refer to the BLU website (http://www.blu.org) for further
information and directions. Parking is free and available in front of

Boston Linux Meeting reminder, tonight, Wednesday, September 16, 2015 - Jeff Schiller and PGP/GnuPG Keysigning Party XV

When: September 16, 2015 7PM (6:30PM for Q&A)
Topic: Jeff Schiller and PGP/GnuPG Keysigning Party XV
Moderator: Jeff Schiller
Location: MIT Building E-51, Room 335


### Please note that Wadsworth St. is still closed.
### Proceed West on Memorial Drive to Ames St. Ames will be
### 2-way during construction. Take a right onto Ames St and another
### right onto Amherst St.

Summary

A talk by Jeff Schiller, followed by our annual keysigning party.
Pre-register your PGP key before the meeting!

Abstract

Add your key to the keysigning party checksheet [blu.org]

A key signing party is a get-together of people who use the PGP
encryption system with the purpose of allowing those people to sign each
others keys. Key signing parties serve to extend the web of trust to a
great degree. Key signing parties also serve as great opportunities to
discuss the political and social issues surrounding strong cryptography,
individual liberties, individual sovereignty, and even implementing
encryption technologies or perhaps future work on free encryption software.

The basic workflow of signing someone's key is as follows:

Verify that the person actually is who they claim to be;
Have them verify their key ID and fingerprint;
Sign their key;
Send the signed key back to them


At the meeting, we go through the first two steps. Each person who
preregistered their key will announce their presence and then read off
their key ID and fingerprint, so everyone can verify that their copy of
the list of keys is correct. Once we've run down the list, we line up,
and each of us examines everyone else's photo IDs to verify that they
are who they claim to be. After the meeting is over, each participant
can then retrieve the keys that they've personally verified, sign those
keys, and send the signed keys back to their respective owners.

In order to complete the keysigning in the allotted time, we follow
a formal procedure as seen in V. Alex Brennen's "GnuPG Keysigning Party
HOWTO", attached below. It is strongly advised that if you have not been
to a keysigning party before, you read this document. We're using the
List-based method for this keysigning party, and the keyserver at
pgp.mit.edu.

It is essential that, before the meeting, you register on the
signup form listed in the attachments. You should bring at least one
picture ID with you. You must also bring your own printout of the report
on that page, so you can check off the names/keys of the people you have
personally verified.

The list will be printed on Wednesday afternoon, the day of the
meeting; be sure to register your key for the keysigning before that.
The official cutoff time is 3:00 pm.

Bio

Jeff works at MIT in the Information Services and Technology
Department (IS&T). For more then 20 years he's managed MIT's Internet
presence. He also built a significant portion of MIT's Security
Infrastructure including its X.509 certificate deployment. MIT is
probably has one of the largest deployments (and certainly the oldest,
dating back to 1996) of X.509 client Certificates.

For further information and directions please consult the BLU Web site

Please note that there is usually plenty of free parking in the E-51
parking lot at 2 Amherst St, or directly on Amherst St.

Boston Linux and Unix InstallFest LVII Saturday August 29, 2015

Boston Linux Installfest LVII
When: Saturday August 29, 2015, from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm
Where: MIT Building E-51, Room 061
2 Amherst St, Cambridge
Plenty of free parking in the parking lot in front of E-51.
http://mitiq.mit.edu/mitiq/directions_%20parkinge51.htm

Please note that Wadsworth Street is under construction. You can enter
Ames St from Memorial Drive, and take a right onto Amherst St.

What you need to bring: Your computer, monitor, power strips and your
Linux distributions. We do have copies of some distributions.
In general we have expertise with most distros, but if you need special
expertise, please email the BLU discussion list in advance. Today, most
distros are using Live CDs that you can try out and then install.
Additionally, CD images can be pushed onto USB sticks using various USB
creators.

COST: It's free! However, we DO have expenses, and contributions are
welcome. Please consider contributing $25 per machine.

Our volunteers will help you to install Linux on your own system. While
Linux runs on most systems, some systems do have configurations and
hardware that may not be supported. Please consult the following web
pages for hardware compatibility. While we prefer you to bring your own
distros, our volunteers will normally have

Linux Howto Pages: http://tldp.org/HOWTO/HOWTO-INDEX/howtos.html
Linux Frequently Asked Questions: http://tldp.org/docs.html#faq
Additionally, there are forums and listservs for most distros.

Generally our volunteers have sets of the latest Fedora, SuSE and
Ubuntu distributions:
* Fedora - http://fedora.redhat.com (Fedora 22 DVD/Live CD/USB)
* Open SuSE - http://opensuse.org (OpenSuSE 13.2 - DVD/Live CD/)
* Ubuntu - http://www.ubuntu.com ( 14.04.3 LTS or 15.04 DVD/USB)


We generally have them on local drives and can burn CDs/DVDs and
USBs.Since there are many variants of these distros, we advise you to
bring an empty USB stick with sufficient memory to hold one of the
distros. LiveCD images required under 1GB, full DVD images for Fedora
require about 4GB, and OpenSuSE needs 8GB. I usually have some USBs
prepared.

We generally have both a Wired and Wireless network available. The
wireless SSID at MIT is "MIT".


In addition, you can run Linux on your Windows PC through a virtual
machine manager, such as Virtualbox. You can install this in your
Windows machine and run Linux as a guest OS, or install it in your Linux
machine and run Windows as a guest. VirtualBox 5.0.2.
(http://www.virtualbox.org.) is free and is available for Linux, Windows
10, Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows XP and Windows Vista. Additionally,
there are also
some VMWare clients that are also free for Windows.

Lunch is generously sponsored by Bluefin Technical Services, John Ross
and Ron Thibeau

Please refer to the BLU website (http://www.blu.org) for further
information and directions. Parking is free and available in front of
the building on Amherst St. Enter the building, and take the elevator to
your left down 1 floor. Room 061 is opposite the elevator.

Boston Linux and Unix InstallFest LV Reminder Tomorrow, Saturday March 14, 2015

Boston Linux Installfest LIV
When: Saturday March 14, 2015, from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm
Where: MIT Building E-51, Room 061
2 Amherst St, Cambridge
Plenty of free parking in the parking lot in front of E-51.
http://mitiq.mit.edu/mitiq/directions_%20parkinge51.htm

Please note that Wadsworth Street is under construction. You can enter
Ames St from Memorial Drive, and take a right onto Amherst St.

What you need to bring: Your computer, monitor, power strips and your
Linux distributions. We do have copies of some distributions.
In general we have expertise with most distros, but if you need special
expertise, please email the BLU discussion list in advance. Today, most
distros are using Live CDs that you can try out and then install.
Additionally, CD images can be pushed onto USB sticks using various USB
creators.

COST: It's free! However, we DO have expenses, and contributions are
welcome. Please consider contributing $25 per machine.

Our volunteers will help you to install Linux on your own system. While
Linux runs on most systems, some systems do have configurations and
hardware that may not be supported. Please consult the following web
pages for hardware compatibility. While we prefer you to bring your own
distros, our volunteers will normally have

Linux Howto Pages: http://tldp.org/HOWTO/HOWTO-INDEX/howtos.html
Linux Frequently Asked Questions: http://tldp.org/docs.html#faq
Additionally, there are forums and listservs for most distros.

Generally our volunteers have sets of the latest Fedora, SuSE and
Ubuntu distributions:
* Fedora - http://fedora.redhat.com (Fedora 20 DVD/Live CD/USB)
* Open SuSE - http://opensuse.org (OpenSuSE 13.2 - DVD/Live CD/)
* Ubuntu - http://www.ubuntu.com ( 14.04.1 DVD/USB)


We generally have them on local drives and can burn CDs/DVDs and
USBs.Since there are many variants of these distros, we advise you to
bring an empty USB stick with sufficient memory to hold one of the
distros. LiveCD images required under 1GB, full DVD images for Fedora
require about 4GB, and OpenSuSE needs 8GB. I usually have some USBs
prepared.

We generally have both a Wired and Wireless network available. The
wireless SSID at MIT is "MIT".


In addition, you can run Linux on your Windows PC through a virtual
machine manager, such as Virtualbox. You can install this in your
Windows machine and run Linux as a guest OS, or install it in your Linux
machine and run Windows as a guest. VirtualBox 4.2.6.
(http://www.virtualbox.org.) is free and is available for Linux, Windows
8, Windows 7, Windows XP and Windows Vista. Additionally, there are also
some VMWare clients that are also free for Windows.

Lunch is generously sponsored by Bluefin Technical Services, John Ross
and Ron Thibeau


Please refer to the BLU website (http://www.blu.org) for further
information and directions. Parking is free and available in front of
the building on Amherst St. Enter the building, and take the elevator to
your left down 1 floor. Room 061 is opposite the elevator.
