"Following the success of the opening Installfest 2000 event in
Adelaide last month, Sunday August 13 saw Canberra host their own
version. The event was sponsored entirely by Linuxcare and was held
at their building on Marcus Clarke Street."
"As with Adelaide, the Canberra Installfest was organised by the
local Linux user group, in this case CLUG (Canberra Linux Users
Group - www.clug.org.au). Linuxcare also chipped in with an
information Web site (which can be found at
www.linuxcare.com.au/installfest2000/) which allowed people to
register for the event and also spread the word."
"Martin Schwenke, regional support engineer for Linuxcare
Australia, was there helping to organise the event. "About 30
people attended and by Friday's end we had a couple less than 20
people registered," said Schwenke. This is a far cry from
Adelaide's 400 odd attendees, but nevertheless, the installfest
still went ahead. "We still had a few people registering on the
day, and some who just showed up. Most of the 30 required fresh
installs. A few needed help getting X or PPP configured," added
