Jump to: navigation, search

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.

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.
