The upcoming Monday's meeting will have a Linux installation live on the big
screen for everyone to see, plus a general question/answer session about
We'll be catching all the CS students who have attended our Linux tutorials
and we're encouraging everyone who reads the mailing list but hasn't been
along to a meeting before because they've thought that they would be over
your head, to come. No prior knowledge is required!
The meeting is to be held in S.G.01 on the University of Waikato campus - if
you're coming from outside, you might like to try Gate 8. A map will be up
on the Wiki shortly.
MONDAY 22 FEBRUARY, 7:30pm, S Block, University of Waikato (S.G.01)
The WLUG committee will meet tomorrow, as per schedule.
If you have any items you would like on the agenda, please email them to me.

!!Installation of Linux
A guide for new users, which will include a live Linux installation to show everyone exactly how easy it can be!
This meeting will almost certainly be on the University of Waikato campus - exact location to be announced.`
Just another note to say thanks to Nathan Ward for coming down from Auckland on Monday and presenting a meeting on Voice over IP.
Nathan covered VoIP from several angles; protocols, software (client and server), and usage, both from an end-to-end perspective and as part of a toll bypass system (where you call from a normal telephone to another one, and get your call shunted onto an IP network along the way.) Thanks also to Gerwin and Computer Upgrades 2000 for providing an excellent venue.
Over the next month we will be presenting tutorials to second year University students who will be using Linux as part of their course. The next month's meeting is going to be an introduction meeting for people who want to install Linux, so keep the date free (Monday 22 March) - the meeting will almost certainly be on the University campus but an exact location will be announced soon.
We want to try and attract everyone that has felt that meetings have been a bit over their heads, people who have lurked on the list or on the Wiki and want to install Linux for the first time, want a run down on the various distros, pros and cons etc.
If there are new users floating around on the list, please let us know what you'd like to see at this meeting - it's for you. The current plan is to run a Linux install live on a projector while the presentation runs so that everyone can see exactly how easy it is.
I am wanting some help to set up a RH9 box as a server and firewall. I
expect to pay for this as a service. Anyone who is interested please
contact me either by e-mail or phone 07 873 6575 wk or 07 873 1831ah.
I'm a newbie using RH9
In system monitor is see my memory usage is 303Mb, total 312Mb.
CPU usage is between 2% - 5% with no significant processes running.
1. Why is so much memory being used?
2. What could be using it?
3. If a process was running, would the memory become full and start
using swap space?
Any light on these points would be appreciated.
