Spectrums, rubber keys, parking fines, OpenLDAP and replacement windows

The installation went fine (in a roundabout sort of way). Oh yes, there were the niggles and gripes, teething problems, times that I had to resort to the beating the insolent teenager of technology with a hammer to get it to work, but in the end it did just that. What on earth am I talking about? Well... the customer of mine, Mr Windows, is now Mr Linux (apart from a couple PCs) and so is his network of around 100 or so workstations. Working like a charm (or curse?). I didn't have the heart to tell him that I was learning this stuff as I went along, that would have probably put the fear of God into his chequebook and his writing hand. I’ll keep the patient under constant observation for a while until it can be taken out of critical care but the prognosis is looking good and the transplant is looking to be a success. Wipe please Nurse! Scalpel, backup tape, CD.

Java on Linux vs MS-Win XP

Just talk

The computer lab we were using at Western Oregon University had Windows XP on all the machines. The first day of class, I used Win-XP for a few minutes--but I just couldn't stand it anymore . . . I whipped-out my PCLinuxOS CD I'd brought along with me, and proceeded to install Linux on the machine . . .

Discovering Linux - The Experiences of a Linux Newbie

Filed under
Reviews

The concept of open-source, free software is very appealing. Many of the Linux-distros are very good, but I still haven't found one that fits my needs perfectly. Also, my needs will propably change as I become more aquainted to Linux. At this time, my favourite distro is propably Mandriva One, though it would've been Ubuntu if they had had support for restricted formats.

Hurts when vista boots you in the DRM's

With Microsoft building a lot around HDCP, DRM into vista and most LCD panels not supporting it, what will be the upgrade cost? Not only will I have to change the two new 20" goggle boxes I've just bought, I'll need to change the graphics card too.

Quick Guide to Securing a Lamp Server

Filed under
Howtos

In the last few years on the Internet the price of dedicated servers have went down and more people are beginning to use them for their sites, game servers, or small hosting companies. With this comes as I was talking about in my last article inexperienced admins. Lots of people I spoke too are too intimated by the linux shell and try to administer their server completely from the control panel.

Well I signed up at the site after I seen they posted on of my howtos which I am thankful for. It was the one on the grsecurity patched kernel. I think it should help quite a few people as there are so many local root exploits out now and most distro's security and dev teams are doing nothing about it.

Games: Release of PlayOnLinux 5.0 Alpha, Aspyr Media, Geneshift, GOG and DotLine

  • Release of PlayOnLinux 5.0 alpha 1
    I'm aware that it has been a while since the last time we gave news to you. Be reassured, the project is moving on and here we are to give you some news.

    For those of you in the mood to start you week with some fun new games, Humble Store is doing an Aspyr Media sale.
  • Top-down shooter Geneshift is getting a Battle Royale mode and it sounds like a lot of fun
    Geneshift (also known as Mutant Factions or Subvein) is a top-down shooter with some seriously good action that's currently in Early Access and the developer has decided to add a Battle Royale mode. Initially, I thought this was a joke. However, it's very much a real thing.
  • GOG added two more Visual Novels with Linux support, Highway Blossoms and A Kiss For The Petals
    For those who love Visual Novels, you might want to know that GOG have expanded their collection a little again recently. The two titles are Highway Blossoms and A Kiss For The Petals - Maidens of Michael. Neither game is particularly new, although it's worth noting that A Kiss For The Petals - Maidens of Michael was removed from Steam so GOG is the easiest option to get it at the moment.
  • Challenging minimalist puzzle game 'DotLine' released with native Linux support
    DotLine from The Selenite Forge who also made Bionic Attack is a minimalist puzzle game that tries to challenge your brain, out now with native Linux support. Note: Key provided by the developer. The basic idea of the game is really simple. You have to guide a ball from start to end, the problem is the path it needs to take is all messed up and you've got the wonderful job of rotating everything into the correct position. What makes it challenging, is that as soon as you rotate the first piece, the ball will begin rolling and so it becomes a mad dash to get everything right. Even if you don't do anything, you only get two seconds before it starts.

Announcing Oracle Solaris 11.4 SRU1

  • Announcing Oracle Solaris 11.4 SRU1
    Today we're releasing the first SRU for Oracle Solaris 11.4! This is the next installment in our ongoing support train for Oracle Solaris 11 and there will be no further Oracle Solairs 11.3 SRUs delivered to the support repository. Due to the timing of our releases and some fixes being in Oracle Solaris 11.3 SRU35 but not in 11.4, not all customers on Oracle Solaris 11.3 SRU35 were able to update to Oracle Solaris 11.4 when it was released. SRU1 includes all these fixes and customers can now update to Oracle Solaris 11.4 SRU1 via 'pkg update' from the support repository or by downloading the SRU from My Oracle Support Doc ID 2433412.1.
  • Oracle Solaris 11.4 SRU1 Released
    It's been just under one month since Oracle's long-awaited debut of Solaris 11.4 and now its first stable release update has been issued. Solaris 11.4 SRU1 is mainly intended to fix some early bugs and those that didn't make the cut for getting in the initial 11.4 release. One new feature is support for "Memory Reservation Pools for Kernel Zones" to help systems with high levels of memory contention or fragmented memory by allowing memory to be reserved ahead of time.

Mr Moore was an early fan of TenFourFox, even back in the old bad Firefox 4 beta days, and he really made his famous Pismo PowerBook G3 systems work hard for it.
