Last weekend, there was a event called Chemnitzer Linux-Tage, it’s a little “family” meeting. Together with Jan Krings, Marcel Richter, Michal Hrusecky and Klaas Freitag I took my part of the event. Alexander Graf was also there with a talk and Kai-Uwe Behrmann presented Oyranos there. Sascha Saigkill Manns showed not up, so the openSUSE medical presentation flopped. It was planned to show openSUSE medical together with Oyranos, because doctors need for medical pictures exact colors, thats an use case.
Klaas had on saturday a talk about his project Kraft, a suite for smaller companies, he was in the business track of the Linux Live foundation and his talk was really overfilled. Alexander Graf had on sunday a talk “AHCI and KVM – how to do storage access right”. Michal had on sunday an workshop about the openSUSE Buildservice. I had also on sunday a workshop about Inkscape and in the morning I did a talk about openSUSE 11.4
For all of us the event started on friday with the arrival and the preparing of the booth. But we had also a little surprise (or not really I saw that coming) JÃ¶rg Luther the chief editor of the magazin LinuxUser asked us, who would represent openSUSE in the Distribution Battle. We decided that really in the last moment and Klaas and me took that part, was easier as we thaught. We “fought” against Debian, Fedora, Mandriva, Pardus and Ubuntu and the first task was installing flash and the second question for us was AppAmor comparing to RedHat’s SELinux.
Nearly everything what Klaas brought us from Nuremberg we gave out, so we distributed 300 DVD and I know there was 5 direct installations in the Praxis Dr.Tux. Some had the chance to get an openSUSE beer, really the last ones. On the end we can say, we had a lot of fun this weekend.
