The turnout was large considering the late announcement. 5:30 pm was the scheduled time but since there were some official formalities required we were delayed by an hour. Moreover finding the hall was difficult for some people.

The arrangement was excellent. An LCD projector would have completed our wish list. Otherwise we got just everything we wnated - enough seats, AC room, Good atmosphere, white board etc.

First each member gave a short self-introduction one by one.
After that Indra gave his talk on building rpm packages. Demonstrated how to build a ”.src.rpm” file and a ”.rpm” (binary) file once you have a source tree that complies and ready for deployment. He promised to put some of the slides online.

On his box we also had a first look of the Bangla Gnome and the Bangla KDE desktops in Mandrake.

The meeting ended at about 8:30 pm.

Please add if I have missed any point.

The members would like to thank the pro-VC, the Registrar of JU, the staff and faculty members of JU CompSci dept for the kind help extended.
