The Debian Packaging System (Debian,
Ubuntu, Knoppix, Fink, Mint, gNewSense)

The Debian packaging system is much more than dpkg and apt-get. There are
many other features and utilities which can make life easier and more
enjoyable for the casual user and the sysadmin. These tools apply not only
to Debian, but to other distributions using the dpkg/APT packaging system
such as Ubuntu and Fink.

This talk will begin by explaining some nomenclature and concepts behind
the Debian packaging system, then move to advanced usage of the basic tools
and finally a summary of other related utilities.

About Richard Darst:
Richard Darst is an advocate of Free Software, a longtime Debian user, and
became involved in the Debian project by helping to secure DebConf10 for
New York City before helping organize and run DebConf10. Since that
running start, he has become a contributor to a number of free software
projects and communities in and outside of the New York area. He has
presented at NYLUG in September 2009 and has become a valued volunteer on
the video crew. Richard is currently a graduate student in chemical

Meeting Location:
Please note that this meeting will be held at IBM, 590 Madison Ave,

the building with the IBM logo on the front of the building.


Swag (Give Away):
During/after the meeting... unusually terrific swag may be given

After the meeting ... You may wish to join up with other NYLUGgers
for drinks and pub food. This month we'll be over at TGI Friday's
(677 Lexington and 56th Street, Second floor, Northeast corner),
but we are also evaluating other options for the future and welcome
your suggestions.

Coding Workshops/Hacking Society:
This is a group of people that wants to learn about and work on coding
in Python, Smalltalk, C++, and other languages, and hack on code.
Sometimes they go out to eat afterward.

Bring something to show off and discuss!
