Linuxcare: 1st Annual International Linux Plug Fest

Jan 04, 2001, 22:23 (0 Talkback[s])

"A Plug Fest is a 2-3 day event in which major OEMs bring their latest and greatest systems, and IHVs bring their components to test on all of the systems for compatibility. This will be a distribution-neutral, platform neutral Linux Plug Fest, which we believe will be a first in the Linux community. We will completely sponsor the event, managing all facility requirements, scheduling and so forth."

"This event is being held to promote compatibility between the newest hardware and the latest Linux kernel in the industry. Our goal is to eliminate interoperability problems by ensuring proper implementation of Linux products."

"Linuxcare will facilitate the process by scheduling private, 1 hour test sessions between add-in card and system, motherboard, and BIOS vendors. Linuxcare Labs will provide technical consultants and "gurus" to assist in testing and debugging. Engineers must accompany all equipment tested. Please see the Test Plan for more details on testing."
