Once again the So Cal Linux Expo is upon us! This marks my fourth consecutive year in attendance, and it has had steady growth through that time.
Since the recent release of cputemp 1.0 (and subsequent minor release), there’s been an influx of downloads and comments on it, including a post by Phoronix and Softpedia. While user comments have revealed a few regressions during the code rewrite that didn’t show up on my hardware, they were easy to patch for version 1.0.1 and expect another new minor release soon to add more hardware support.
There are may reason why someone may not want to or be able to use a USB stick, CD, or DVD to install a Linux distribution (no CDs laying around, and your mobo won’t boot to USB, or your just don’t feel like it, cool.) Luckily, you can easily install Linux without needing either. I will, naturally, be using Fedora as an example, and giving a guide for both users currently running Linux or Windows.
The first day of the Southern California Linux Expo has gone pretty well. While the network still suffered, it was usable for most of the day. This is partly helped by there being two wifi broadcasts on both 2.4 and 5 GHz. The turnout seems pretty high so far, but the atmosphere doesn’t seem as crowded as it did last year. This in in large part to the relocation of the event across the street to the Hilton from the Westin.
