The Manitoba UNIX User Group (MUUG) will be holding its next monthly
meeting IN PERSON, on Tuesday, March 7th, at 7:30pm.  Yes, that's a week 
early, i.e. the FIRST Tuesday of the month...

    KVM without a GUI - Have you lost your head?

    Linux KVM (Kernel-Based Virtual Machine) is a full virtualization
    solution for Linux, using hardware accelerated virtualization
    extensions to provide near physical performance. New users of KVM
    may find the command line interface daunting and difficult to
    understand. Even the majority of KVM tutorials online rely on the
    GUI to do the initial installation and setup of your virtual
    machines, but what if we don't have a GUI? As Linux admins, we are
    accustomed to doing most of our work in a remote terminal, most of
    our servers don't even have a keyboard or monitor plugged in, and
    are located in remote data centers. In this presentation, Wyatt
    Zacharias will present the basics of how to use the KVM command
    line tools to create and setup a new virtual machine from scratch.

    Where to find the Meeting:
    Fortress Software Inc., 350 Keewatin St -- Unit #2

    We have a new in-person meeting location now! Brad Vokey has
    graciously let us use his work office for our next in-person
    meeting. The meeting room will be open by 7:00 pm, with the actual
    meeting starting at 7:30 pm. If driving, enter the lot using the
    most north east entrance and drive around to the south west corner
    of the building (see route in map detail on poster linked below).
    You can use any of the free, amble, and safe parking spots that
    say "reserved" in front of units #1 through #4 before entering
    unit #2. Bus stops #30814 and #30880 (route 77) are only 150
    meters away. The last bus leaves for Polo Park at 10:15 pm and for
    Garden City at 10:31 pm. Logan Ave. bus routes #19, #26, and #27
    are a 600 meter (8 minute) walk to the south.

    For those unable or preferring not to attend in person, the
    meeting will also be available online, using BBB as usual. Stay
    tuned to our muug.ca home page for the official URL, which
    will be made available about a half hour before the meeting
    starts. (Reload the page if you don't see the link, or if there
    are issues with connecting.)

    *Date Change*

    Please note the change in meeting date for this month, and for the
    rest of the current year (at least until the July/August break).
    We are now meeting on the first Tuesday of each month.

The group now holds its meetings at 7:30pm on the *first* 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.
