[PLUG] [plug-announce] Monday, May 14, 2012 - "Gentoo Everywhere: An Introduction To Prefix by Rich Freeman" (7pm at FIS in Malvern)

The Philadelphia Area Linux Users Group (PLUG) cordially invites
you to a PLUG West meeting on Monday, May 14 at FIS in Malvern,
PA from 7-9 pm. See below for directions to the meeting location.

This month, PLUG West welcomes back Rich Freeman, who will
be giving a talk on Gentoo Prefix.

  Unix is even more ubiquitous than Linux, but the sad fact is that not
  all Unix systems are created equal.  If you'e ever found yourself
  staring at a command line and struggling to remember bsd syntax, or
  finding that you're forced to work on a box for which no gcc is
  available and autoconf is at v1.11, then perhaps Prefix is for you.
  Or, perhaps you run a more modern distro but need a development
  environment different from what is supplied, and a chroot jail isn't
  adequate for some reason.

  Gentoo Prefix is an innovative and flexible non-chroot solution to
  running a modern linux userspace on a system otherwise managed by some
  other operating system.   This overview/demo will help you to
  understand both its strengths and weaknesses, and equip you should you
  wish to give it a try yourself.

Interested in Linux, BSD, and Free Software? Whether you're
already an enthusiast or want to learn more, come and join us!
PLUG meetings are free and open to everyone, and anyone who is
curious is invited to attend.

The meeting will be at the FIS office in Malvern, PA:

  2 West Liberty Blvd, Suite 300
  Malvern, Pennsylvania 19355
