[PLUG] [plug-announce] Tuesday, June 12, 2012 - "Gentoo Everywhere: An Introduction to Prefix" by Rich Freeman (PLUG North at CoreDial in Blue Bell, 7pm)

This month, PLUG North welcomes back Rich Freeman, who will
be giving a talk on Gentoo Prefix.  Rich has previously given
a version of this talk at PLUG West.

  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.

The meeting will take place on Tuesday, June 12, from 7-9pm (7-8
General Q&A, 8-9 Presentation) at CoreDial:

  CoreDial (

  1787 Sentry Parkway West
  Suite 100 (Building 16)
  Blue Bell, PA 19422
