The Linux and Unix Users Group at Virginia Tech Wiki is a free reference. Its purpose is to document how to make the most of Virginia Tech and other resources by utilizing *nix operating systems. Many articles on this site are templates from the VTLUUG-pioneered Uniluug project, in hopes of fostering greater collaboration between university Linux and Unix user groups.

Note: The wiki uses LDAP login so you can login with the same password you use to access acidburn. Please contact an officer if you need help logging in.

About this wiki

This wiki was intended to support *nix usage on campus. Here are suggested items for this wiki:

  • Anything related to Linux usage, such as tutorials and other documentation, especially related to that at VT
  • Anything related to VTLUUG (meeting minutes, infrastructure, projects, history, etc)
  • Technical projects that VTLUUG members (individually or collectively) have done
  • General geekery that doesn't fit anywhere else, related to interests of one or more VTLUUG members (e.g. audio gear, coffee, amateur radio, etc.)
  • Opinionated content that may not reflect the interests of the entire Virginia Tech or Blacksburg community

Some items are more suited for Gobblerpedia, our sister wiki. These include:

  • General content about Blacksburg or Virginia Tech that is non-technical in nature. Please categorize these with Move to Gobblerpedia so we can later migrate them in bulk.
