The Manitoba UNIX User Group (MUUG) will be holding its next monthly
meeting on Tuesday, June 14.  The meeting topic for this month is
as follows:


    Eric Raine will be presenting on the Gentoo Linux Distribution.
    Differences in installation from Ubuntu will be covered. Also
    covered is how to configure installation of packages and update.

    Gentoo is a free operating system based on either Linux or FreeBSD
    that can be automatically optimized and customized for just about
    any application or need.

    RTFM: Terminal Control Commands

    Due to a recent influx of new and novice members, Trevor Cordes
    will be doing an RTFM instead of a daemon dash this month. The
    topic is something every *NIX user should master: terminal control
    commands (e.g. ^Z and ^L) and rudimentary job control. These little
    dual-key presses will streamline your terminal sessions and make you
    more efficient. You'll wonder how you ever got by without them!

The group holds its general meetings at 7:30pm on the second Tuesday of
every month from September to June.  (There are no meetings in July and
August.) Meetings are open to the general public; you don't have to be a
MUUG member to attend.

     Please note our *NEW* meeting location for this month: *Room 1M28*
     (1st floor) Manitoba Hall, University of Winnipeg, entrance on
     Ellice Ave. between Spence St. and Balmoral St.

     Parking is available on the surrounding streets and in the lots
     on nearby streets.  Look for signage once you're at the building,
     or ask a security guard.
