broadband reports: I've been spending some time benchmarking the Dell MD-3000 powervault storage array under SuSE 10.2 x86_64 linux. It is ok for the price we paid (half retail), but this storage array, with the guts of an old IBM DS4100 which had an anemic 485 MB/sec internal bus speed, is not able to max out the total sequential read or write performance of the 15 disks it is able to contain.
FOSSwire: PHP is an interpreted language. That unfortunately means that every time a client requests a PHP page from your site, the PHP interpreter has to re-read the script and compile it on the fly before it is run. It can be beneficial to use a PHP caching system to shave some time off the pageload.
Welp, we're in the homestretch now. Beta 3 of openSUSE 10.3 was released a few days ago, and with only one more developmental release before final, we were hoping things were starting to shape up. This release doesn't bring too many surprises or any new eye candy, but most subsystems are stablizing. With 587 MB of changes, developers are homing in on their goal.
beyond3d.com: A german publication has posted an interview with Todd Hollenshead, id Software's CEO, that reveals id Software and John Carmack are no longer as committed to Linux as they have been.
howto geek: I'm the type of geek that always has an open ssh session connected to my servers, but ever since I switched to using a Mac running OS X, I noticed a huge annoyance in my terminal… the syntax highlighting makes it impossible to read the files I'm trying to edit.
matt asay: OK, so sometimes I'm wrong. Miguel de Icaza called out an error I made in criticizing Novell for its open-source strategy. I admit that I find it hard to see beyond Novell's patent pact with Microsoft but, as Miguel pointed out in a string of emails between us today, this leaves out a lot that Novell does well.
kmandla.wordpress.com: In a lot of the same ways I liked Wolvix, I like Vector Linux. On the other hand, there’s enough that’s different that I probably won’t keep it. Part of that might be a sophomore slump having just seen Wolvix in action: It’s a hard act to follow.
kernelTRAP: "In private discussions, Solar Designer proposed to restrict the ability to map the NULL address to CAP_RAW_IO capable processes only. The idea behind this was to prevent 'normal' users from trying to exploit NULL dereferences in the kernel which have not been discovered yet."
linux.com: As noted in the update to our review of Paterva Evolution, a personal data mining tool, Roelof Temmingh has removed the binaries for the application after having received legal threats over its use. In an email on the Paterva announcement's mailing list over the weekend, Temmingh revealed more about why the binaries had to be removed and unveiled his plans for future work on the project.
Motho ke motho ka botho: For the next week, most (if not all) of the UF.org staff have transmogrified into miniature renditions of everyone’s favorite superhuman being, Chuck Norris.
planet.sabayonlinux: Ok, miniEditions are on the way. I’m working on them since Friday (eventually!). They won’t support Equo yet, since I am actively working on something. I’m just trying the latest unstable release [of portage] and the first impression is: “eventually something good!”.
arabianbusiness: Regional Linux users received a boost today as open source leader Red Hat announced the opening of a regional support centre for the Middle East.
arstechnica: In a positive effort to ease the commute of its employees, Microsoft has announced a new bus route that will reach to various local regions. Set to begin later this month, a total of five routes will stretch to Seattle, Issaquah, Mill Creek, Sammammish, and Bothell.

phoronix: This past week AMD raised the Linux graphics bar by not only announcing their new fglrx graphics driver, which delivers Radeon HD 2000 support, immense performance improvements, and AIGLX, but it was accompanied by an announcement that they will be delivering specifications to the X.Org development community. One of the common questions that has since come up is what will NVIDIA do in response.
ruminations: The fresh install of PC-BSD was a very simple task. There was no need to make backups of important files and under Vmware the creation of new virtual computer is simply a matter of following the step in the wizard. I decided not to use disk 2 to install for instance Firefox or OpenOffice.org, but just to install the basic system that disk 1 provides. That didn’t take long.
desktoplinux: Lenovo finally started shipping SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop on its T-Series ThinkPads for its mainstream business users. Now, the company appears to be considering offering another Linux, very possibly Ubuntu, for the enthusiast market.

iTWire: An intrusion detection system – or IDS – is a high-tech burglar alarm, keeping a watchful eye on your computer and alerting when computer or network activity indicates unauthorised or malicious activity. An IDS is a must-have app, and Snort is rapidly becoming the tool of choice.
etbe.coker.com.au: A common question is how to compare Fedora  and Debian  in terms of recent updates and support. I think that Fedora Rawhide and Debian/Unstable are fairly equivalent in this regard, new upstream releases get packaged quickly, and support is minimal.
