The Manitoba UNIX User Group (MUUG) will be holding its next monthly meeting on Tuesday, January 11 at 7:30pm.  The meeting topic for this month is as follows:




The concept of running a virtual machine within another computer has been implemented for almost 50 years, and yet it has become commonplace in Linux distributions only recently. The creation of these machines has now been made much easier by the inclusion of the appropriate hooks within the Linux kernel.


In this talk, Michael Doob will look at KVM, the main tool that allows the user to create, modify, run, clone and save virtual machines using these hooks.

The approach will be hands-on. We'll do this by using both a GUI (virt-manager) and the command line (virsh). Both fully-virtualized and para-virtualized virtual machines will be created and modified.



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 meeting location: The IBM offices, at 400 Ellice Ave. (between Edmonton and Kennedy). When you arrive, you will have to sign in at the reception desk, and then wait for someone to take you (in groups) to the meeting room. Please try to arrive by about 7:15pm, so the meeting can start promptly at 7:30pm. Don't be late, or you may not get in.  (But don't come too early either, since security may not be there to let you in before 7:15 or so.) Non-members may be required to show photo ID at the security desk.


Limited parking is available for free on the street, either on Ellice Ave. or on some of the intersecting streets. Indoor parking is also available nearby, at Portage Place, for $5.00 for the evening. Bicycle parking is available in a bike rack under video surveillance located behind the building on Webb Place.
