Talk Title Porting Debian GNU/Linux
Track Development
Scope Technical
Synopsis This talk tells the story of how Debian GNU/Linux was ported to some of the world's fastest computers. Hearing this story provides some insight into how HP works with the Open Source community. Some lessons learned by Debian's eleven port will be explained, supporting the conclusion that solving portability problems improves overall software quality.
Speaker Profile Bdale is a former Debian Project Leader, and as HP Linux CTO helps to ensure Linux will work well on future HP systems. His background includes many years of both UNIX internals and embedded systems work. He helped jump-start ports of Debian GNU/Linux to 5 architectures other than i386. When Bdale isn't busy keeping his basement computer farm full of oddball systems running Linux working, he enjoys amateur radio... particularly helping build amateur satellites.
