This talk is by Michael Dorrington on the alternative kernels of
kFreeBSD and Hurd to Linux for the GNU System. The talk will explain
what a kernel is and its role in a system, it will explain the GNU and
Linux in GNU/Linux, it will then investigate GNU/kFreeBSD and GNU/Hurd
including showing them running. If you are interesting in Linux or Free
Software or GNU or FreeBSD or Hurd then this talk should be of interest
Michael has been using GNU/Linux for many years, and is very interested
in the GNU project. The Hurd project has been of interest to him for
many years too but in the last year he has actually got to use it via
the Debian GNU/Hurd project. In the last year or so he also heard of the
Debian GNU/kFreeBSD project and he wishes to help make Debian
GNU/kFreeBSD an official architecture of the next Debian release, Squeeze.
The meeting will take place at the usual time, 7pm, at the Lass O'Gowrie
<http://www.thelass.co.uk/> pub on Charles Street in Central Manchester.
We will be located in the Salmon Room upstairs, although there will be
people around a little earlier downstairs (probably sampling the food
and drinks on offer). Just ask at the bar if you can't find us. Their
website has full details of how to get there and the fine selection of
food and drink available. The venue also provides WiFi.
General information about Manchester Free Software meetings can be found
on our websites.
