Envy Script

Filed under
Linux

Have you ever wanted an easy way to install your Nvidia or Ati card in your Ubuntu or Debian(Etch) box? Well the answer is in http://albertomilone.com/nvidia_scripts1.html and it's called Envy.
The process installing Nvidia or Ati drivers is very fast..only a few clicks plus you don't have to remove any previous drivers. It does it all.

From http://albertomilone.com :

Envy

It is an application (written in Python and PyGTK) which automates the installation of both the ATI and the Nvidia proprietary driver on Ubuntu (Dapper and Edgy)*. Envy downloads the driver which your graphic card model needs, installs all the compilers, etc., sets up the Xserver configuration file for you and makes sure that the driver integrates nicely with Ubuntu's restricted modules.

* Now on Feisty and Debian Etch

Well done mr Alberto Smile

Red Hat on Middleware, RHEL AUDITD, and More Security Issues

  • Open Outlook: Middleware (part 1)
    Middleware, both as a term and as a concept, has been around for decades. As a term, like other terms in the Darwinian world of IT jargon, it has followed a typical fashion lifecycle and is perhaps somewhat past its apogee of vogue. As a concept, however, middleware is more relevant than ever, and while a memetic new label hasn't quite displaced the traditional term, the capabilities themselves are still very much at the heart of enterprise application development. Middleware is about making both developers and operators more productive. Analogous to standardized, widely-used, proven subassemblies in the manufacture of physical goods such as cars, middleware relieves developers from "reinventing the wheel" so that they can compose and innovate at higher levels of abstraction. For the staff responsible for operating applications in production, at scale, with high reliability and performance, the more such applications use standardized middleware components and services, the more efficient and reliable the running of the application can be.
