Again, we have a presence at OpenExpo Winterthur
Our Booth is a bit hidden - but we have placed our huge banner in the middle of another booth so we are visible for sure ;P
I am happy to meet Fabian and Sandro again, Markus from the CentOS Project joined us as a Family Member ;)
The number of visitors is disappointing, hope it will be better tomorrow, i take it as a warm up for the Fedora Activity Day which will start on Friday in Rheinfelden.
In afternoon a Visitor showed up with a Acer Aspire One with the original Linpus installed - which is just Fedora 8 Werewolf - outdated for longer time. I ever prefered not to install from our live-media for certain reasons. With no CDRom/DVD available and after encouragement by my fellows i took a F11 live-usb provided by Sandro from the last Redhat Summit with the promise it is updated and bug free for the installation.
A scary moment later we had a broken system - then i tried xfce-live-usb, the original desktop-live-usb, partitioning and formating manually ... and always errors around a common F11 bug, i never faced this problems by using install media.
After the visitor stated "this is not a problem i will find a fix at the neighbor booth" - i decided to take a F10 live-usb which installed problemfree within 10 minutes - with all HW working. Lesson learned!
Brazil Samba Girls danced through the exhibition hall in the evening and i decided to leave before they could pick me up for a dance. I think the money for the Samba Girls could be better invested elsewhere - but this is maybe my german mind ;)
Let's see how it is going tomorrow ;)
