     Talk: 1. Linux SMP on a quad-Xeon server
           2. Green Frog Linux

All Linux users and supporters of open source code and free software
are invited to attend this Tokyo Linux Users Group (TLUG) meeting.
Membership is open to anyone.  There are no membership dues or entrance
fees (we will accept donations to help cover the room usage costs). 

At this meeting, TLUG member Austin Kurahone will give us an overview
of Green Frog Linux, a mini-distro of his own creation. Austin is probably
one of the youngest people in Japan who has his own Linux distribution 
package. Check for details.

The second topic will be Linux SMP on a quad-Xeon server. Our guest speaker
will be Mr. Chai Mee Joon Lawrence, Cycle Master CTO
He have conducted a Workshop (W3-2) entitled "Linux SMP and the Intel SC450NX
Quad Xeon Server platform" on March 5th at the Suntec City International
Convention Centre, as part of the Singapore Linux Conference 1999, and at
this meeting he will show us the highlights of that presentation.

Austin Kurahone and Uva "Uva" Coder are burning the latest
edition of the TLUG original CD-ROM, that will be available at the
meeting for a nominal fee. This month's CD will contain: Linux kernels
2.2.9 and 2.3.6, Gnome and KDE, Code Crusader, RC5-DES clients 
(participate in the RC5-64 cracking effort by joining the TLUG Team!), 
and much more good and useful stuff.

About TLUG
TLUG is a non-profit, non-political organization established in June
of 1994 to exchange information on the use of Linux and Free Software
Foundation tools.  TLUG has an active mailing list, home page, and
regular physical meetings.  Discussions are primarily held in English,
but non-English speakers are encouraged to come and participate.
We especially want to encourage Japanese people to attend and will make
efforts to support a bilingual meeting.

TLUG hosts technical meetings every even month on the 2nd Saturday, and
nomikai's every odd month on the 3rd Friday. 

* This meeting will be held extraordinarily on the third Saturday of
  June, in order to fit into the schedule of our guest speaker. It will
  be an evening meeting (from 6:30 til 8PM), and we will head to a
  restaurant/izakaya afterwards.

Meeting Place
(map at

The Temple University Japan (TUJ) Campus is located at 'San no Hashi'
(the street name is 'Sakurada Dori'). The DHC building across the street
has a HUGE four sided sign that says DHC. The 06 bus from Shibuya stops
at Furukawa-bashi, which is a one block walk away from TUJ. TUJ is in a
single big building with a sign out front, right on Sakurada Dori.

Cab drivers will take you right there if you ask for San no Hashi. It is a
15 minute walk from Tamachi, but while it is pretty straight forward, it
needs a map, as there are a couple of jogs in the route.

The 96 bus also stops there, and I think the 92 bus as well. It is a 20
minute walk from Hiro (Just go to Tengen-ji Bashi intersection and head
toward Azabu Ju-ban on Meijidori), or a minimum price cab ride from either
Hiro or Tamachi

Once in the university building, go up the stairs opposite the elevator to
the second floor, turn right down the hall to room 206. Of course you can
use the elevator as needed.
