[Wlug] Upcoming meetings - topic proposals
Mon, 7 May 2001 09:57:13 -0400
I would also enjoy some additional discussion on firewalls.
Here are my suggestions for additional topics;
1) ipchains and dial out PPP. Setting up a fire wall for
dialing into your favorite ISP.
2) ELF Files. How to read and map an ELF file. How
to extract and use symbols.
3) Reading Linux crash dumps. Starting point and what to
look for. Absolute locations in the dump. Interesting
Linux data structures.
4) Writing a basic Linux driver.
5) Embedded Linux - There appears to be significantly more
"Embedded Linux" job opportunities than "Linux"
opportunities. How are they different? How do you move
from Linux to embedded Linux?
6) Creating the ultimate ".emacs" file. Simple and useful

Subject: [Wlug] Upcoming meetings - topic proposals
For our next meeting, I would like to have somebody finish the thread from
the last meeting or two by explaining the contents of their firewall
script and why the series of ipchains commands works for them. This might
be helpful to folks who are either considering implementing a firewall or
who want to understand the canned script that they got from wherever.
My idea for a subsequent meeting was to have a newbie meeting as we
haven't had one in quite some time. One idea I had was to discuss a shell:
a) bash - scripting, command line "tricks"
perhaps go over a "real" script, such as
a startup script in /etc/init.d/wherever...
Another idea would be to discuss the use of digital cameras with Linux.
Are there other topics people would like to see? Are there volunteers to
take on these topics? Perhaps there is a topic more interesting to you?
Thanks in advance for your input,
