    Ok here's the long awaited LCA 2002 CD stuff that I promised. It was supposed to take 6 weeks to be sent out but what can you do? I've chosen to post some of the more interesting tutorials.

    Check the second post of this thread for a list of the tutorials. If there's something in the list that you really want to see but I haven't posted it, just PM me and we'll sort something out. Part of the reason that I haven't posted some things was that they were too big to post as an attachment.

    There are 3 attachments to this post so I'll post them separately.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    lca2002_1.zip

    (1) bsd_better.zip

    Greg Lehey - Why BSD is better than Linux

    In recent years, the success of Linux has obscured the fact that many components of the original UNIX were available in source code without charge, and that one of the leading versions of traditional UNIX, BSD UNIX, has been available as Open Source for longer than Linux.

    This paper investigates the freely available derivatives of BSD, also known as Berkeley UNIX, and compares them with Linux.


    (2) gcc.zip

    Alan Modra - GCC Internals

    This talk will introduce some under-the-hood details of the process gcc uses to convert your C program to an executable, with a focus on debugging tricks that will help you on you way to becoming a gcc hacker.


    (3) open_ldap.zip

    Del Elson - Centralised authentication on Linux using OpenLDAP
    A practical demonstration of setting up LDAP in a networked environment.

    This tutorial covers the following topics:

    Authentication systems in general.

    Host based vs Network based authentication.

    PAM, theory and practice.

    NSS, theory and practice.

    Installing OpenLDAP.

    Migrating to OpenLDAP.

    Running OpenLDAP.

    Making OpenLDAP secure.

    Cross platform authentication: Theory and practice.


    (4) portNET.zip

    Rhys Weatherley - Portable.NET

    Describes the progress of the Portable.NET project, which is a free software alternative to Microsoft's .NET initiative, distributed under the GNU General Public License. In particular, the Common Language Runtime (CLR) and C# language parts of .NET.


    (5) tcp_udp.zip

    Simon Horman - iproxy: Running TCP services over UDP

    This paper will focus the implementation issues in sending and receiving UDP traffic when nothing is known about the network the machine is attached to. It will illustrate how to create simple Multicast, Broadcast and Unicast UDP clients and servers. It will also discuss the problems and solutions realised when trying to carry TCP connections over UDP.


    lca2002_2.zip

    (1) redhat.zip

    Paul Gampe - Internationalising Red Hat


    lca2002_3.zip

    (1) uml.zip

    Jeff Dike - Blurring boundaries with User-mode Linux

    User-mode Linux (UML) is the port of Linux to its own system call interface resulting in a virtual Linux machine running in a set of Linux processes. This paper will briefly describe the design and implementation of UML and cover in somewhat more detail the work done in the year since LCA 2001. The rest of the paper will focus on the future development of UML and how it will straddle normally inviolable boundaries.
