April Meeting – 23rd April 2014

Hi Everyone

Just a quick note to say our April LUG meeting will be tonight at 7.30pm, usual place the Courtyard in Hereford on the mezzanine floor.

If you have been on our list but haven’t attended a meeting yet, or you’ve been unable to attend for a while, we’d be very pleased to see you.

The meeting will start at 7:30pm as usual.

Items to discuss :-

  • New Special Event – Where’s best to book? I have some details on the Leominster Grange Court which for community groups is more affordable than previous places we have used or looked at.
  • New HLUG website – not many posts going on there. can we do som e training, or find out how we can get more people posting to it?

The Courtyard has free fast wifi and serves lovely coffees, and there is level access to all public areas of the building. You can find directions to The Courtyard, Edgar Street, Hereford, HR4 9JR here

The Courtyard has pay and display parking adjacent and free parking a short walk away.
I’ll see you all there tonight.

Again, sorry for the short notice

How to replace grub boot on newer distro after installing another linux (ubuntu based) os

Hi

I’m sure you’ve been in the situation (I have many times), where you install an os, use it for a while then move on to something better installing it to a new partition on the hard disk. After a while of trying it out you decide you wish to move to the new linux distro completely. But you still have the old grub boot set up, which will boot by default into the original distro. This is easily changed, but even then, its much better to have your main distro controlling grub allowing it to update when new kernel updates are made or if you upgrade your distro version.
This is a really easy guide for how to do it that takes you through it nice and gently  http://community.linuxmint.com/tutorial/view/245
