Free Your Machine
Free Your Machine happens from 10am to 2pm on a Saturday once a quarter. If you are bringing a machine to have Linux installed, please defragment your hard drives before you come. This often takes a long time and can prevent us from installing.
We install Ubuntu 14.04 or Linux Mint 16 by default, but if you would like another distribution installed, bring a disc and we’ll help you if we can. Please note that most of our members are more familiar with Debian/Ubuntu, so you’ll have the most support with one of those variants.
Your computer must be able to boot from a CD-ROM or a USB drive, or from the network (PXE boot). If you cannot boot from either, or if your computer cannot run Windows, or if you have really really weird hardware, please contact our mailing list directly so that we can be prepared for you.
This quarter’s (Spring 2014) FYM is Saturday May 3 at 10am in 20-124 (Engineering East Networks Lab)
