Welcome to the RHLUG Wiki!
Our plan for this wiki is to document anything specific to using Linux at Rose-Hulman. We'll show you some other resources where you can learn up-to-date information on how to use Linux, open-source software, or server management, just to make things less cluttered.
If you want to talk, join our Telegram group at https://t.me/rhlug.
- 1 Meetings
- 2 Software
- 3 Linux Tutorials
- 4 Hardware
- 5 LUG Stuff
Due to COVID-19, these meetings will all likely be held virtually until the near future. We will not make in-person mandatory to be counted for attendance, and there will be other ways besides coming to meetings to be counted for attendance, such as showing interest in the Telegram. We want to make this club open and fair for everyone, so anyone who is sick will not be at a disadvantage.
We may not even be allowed to do in-person meetings depending on future campus policies. They aren't necessary for our club.

Want to buy a new one for yourself
We're currently migrating/updating the information from:
- the wiki from 2019, and we have a backup of only a few pages from in March 2018, sadly. Some of it is no longer relevant though, so new information will take its place.
- the old wiki, which we have a badly cached version of here since it has stability issues.
This wiki is hosted on Amazon AWS using the Bitnami MediaWiki Stack.
