I'm sitting at the grml booth and we ran out of grml-cds sooner than expected (now burning some more blank CDs on our own). Oh, BTW - the grml booth is featured at derstandard.at. :)
My grml talk starts in less than 3 hours, I'm just checking my slides once more.

grml at chemnitzer linuxdays 2007 Posted by Michael Prokop in events at 23:00
We had two Efika boards at the grml booth (one from formorer and the other one from myself). Formorer and me did some further work on the ppc-port of grml:
The grml-team had the chance to test one server of the Linux cluster in chemnitz [Chemnitzer Hochleistungs-Linux-Cluster (CHIC)] with grml. The server is a IBM System x3455 featuring Dual-Core AMD Opteron Processor, DDR2-RAM and AMD's virtualization technology 'Secure Virtual Machine' (SVM). The cluster machine running grml:
Output of /proc/cpuinfo running grml:
The server at the grml booth:
Oh, and as you can see in the last picture we had CDs of a special grml release (0.9-5) at the grml-booth!

I've been in Bremen at Robocup 2006 for the last 8 days as member of the ROBOCUP 'Mostly Harmless' team (Graz University of Technology, Austria). I was responsible for all the IT-stuff. Of course our roboters were powered by grml. Take a look at the webgallery to see our grml-powered roboters in action.

grml on linuxdays vienna 2006 Posted by Michael Prokop in events at 22:05
Some days ago I visited "Linuxwochen Wien". Of course I held a lecture about grml (including a presentation of the great Zsh): 'grml - Linux Live-CD für Sysadmins und Geeks', see the picture on the left (thanks go to Sven Guckes for the shot). On the second day of the event I had a talk about 'Erfolgreiche OpenSource Projekt-Maintenance'. I was pretty amazed that so many people attended my talks, even though I had the first slot in the morning for the grml-talk and the last slot in the evening for my opensource project maintenance talk. Some people even had to stand because they didn't get a seat. Nice. :-)
If you're interested in the slides of my talks you can get them now:
I also met several people for the first time in reallife, to name some of them: Klaus 'koki' Ita, Markus 'markus23' Raab, Pablo 'redtux' Hoertner, David 'DavidS' Schmitt, Fabian 'lefant' Linzberger, Christian 'Greek0' Aichinger. And of course I met Alfie (AKA Rhonda). I really enjoyed meeting all of you!
We had a grml-booth too. It was fun to share the booths of grml and debian. Usually the grml-booth had to answer debian related questions and people behind the debian-booth had to provide grml-support. ;-) I was *really* amazed how many people already use grml.
Because of the presence at the grml-booth I visited only few talks. Some interesting stuff:
Stuff I learned at the event:
If you want to browse some pics, thank Sven Guckes for his online gallery of linuxdays vienna:
I really enjoyed the event. The only bad news: I got ill in the night to friday, seems like a small burn-out hit me. :-(

Someone showed me his really small and cute gadget where he successfully installed grml. I really enjoyed playing with it. :-)
We had a grml booth too (Jimmy on the left, Rebekka in the middle and my girlfriend on the right side):
I met several "grml-related" people like Maximilian 'maxs' Attems, Thomas 'thomerz' Ulz, Michael 'memorial' Taschner and Bernhard 'skywire' Hoedl for the first time in reallife. Nice to meet you! :-)
And as mentioned in the the Gentoo Linux Newsletter we had a tricky setup of the booths:

As written in my personal blog I've got some grml-CDs:

grml - Chemnitzer LinuxTage 2006 edition Posted by Michael Prokop in events at 23:48
Main work on the special grml edition "Chemnitzer LinuxTage 2006" (grml-clt06) has been finished. Packages have been updated, we have some more new tools and minor bugfixes took place. Now we have to do some more testing before burning the CDs is on the todolist. The edition will be available exclusive for CLT06 visitors. If you visit my grml-talk your chances aren't that bad to receive a grml-clt06-CD. :-)
BTW: We'll have grml-develmeeting(s) at CLT06. If you want to get in contact with grml-developers feel free to do so! We are wearing black shirts. ;-) Of course with a grml-logo on it. :-)
