	Canberra Linux Users Group Meeting - 23rd June 2011

Date:		23rd June 2011 (Fourth Thursday of the month)

Time:		19:00 - 21:00 (or when it finishes)

Speaker:	Paul Wayper

Abstract:	Paul will be describing the process of how a Linux
		machine boots up and brings you the login prompt you
		know and love. 
		The process of getting you that prompt, where all the
		system services are up and running, is a complex
		process. In this talk, Paul will be going through the
		process from GRUB, loading the kernel and the ram disk,
		then starting init and booting the system. In the talk
		Paul will describe ways to troubleshoot the boot process
		so that, in those rare occasions where something goes
		horribly wrong, you can fix it - or at least recognise
		the symptoms. 

Venue:		Room N101
		Computer Science and Information Technology Building
		North Road
		The Australian National University

		See http://clug.org.au/ for more directions and a map

Food/drink:	Pizza and soft drink/juice. Come hungry, and bring 
		about $6 to cover the cost of your share if you 
		want some.
