Welcome to the South Alabama Linux Users Group (SALUG) Home Page





May Event
Has it been a while since you've upgraded your Linux machines? Do you have some old hardware that needs a new lease on life? Are you (or a friend or family member) interested in Linux, but haven't yet taken the plunge? If you answered "yes" to any of these, bring your gear to the SALUG Installfest on Saturday, May 21st.

This event is being held in conjunction with the Mobile Makerspace's monthly Raspberry Pi workshop, and will take place at that event's usual venue. Please join us at the West Regional branch of the Mobile Public Library, located at 5555 Grelot Road in Mobile. (See the branch's webpage, linked above, for a map.) The Installfest will be held in the library's Meeting Room and Cafe area, and will begin at 11:00 AM.

The Installfest is a great opportunity to explore the capabilities of Linux on old and new hardware alike. Bring any computers you have, from older desktop PCs and laptops to the newest Raspberry Pi single-board devices. SALUG members will be on hand to help you install the Linux distribution(s) of your choice on your systems, as well as answer any questions you may have. We will have several distributions available for installation, including flavors of the newly-released Ubuntu 16.04 LTS—and, if we don't have what you're looking for, we can help you find it. (We'll also be working on our own machines, so there will be plenty of opportunities for demonstrations.)

SALUG currently meets at iHeartMedia. (555 Broadcast Drive, near Bel Air Mall in Mobile. This is the TV 5 building; use the right-hand entrance on the front of the building.) Our meetings start at 2:00pm and are held on the second Saturday of the month.
