I have an older G4 eMac with 512Mb RAM. I upgraded the CD-Rom to a DVD burner and am installing Feisty on it. I did however run into issues just getting to the install. Here are the steps I followed to get a successful install started from the Live CD.
1. Download the ISO from here. (I grabbed the one labeled “Mac (PowerPC) and IBM-PPC (POWER5) desktop CD “).
Nearly two months ago, Raven Zachary, a senior analyst with The 451 Group, sent me his research report "Going Open: Software Vendors in Transition." I've been waiting for the chance to read it in full, but it hasn't been easy finding time to plow through its 66 pages. On a flight to Europe yesterday I found the time, and am glad I did.
I recently tried the latest version of Ubuntu and they're theming OpenOffice. I noticed they included the Tango version of OOo's icons. They look amazing so when I went back to OpenSuse I decided to try and get them on there. Here's the howto.
Browse to http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/o/openoffice.org/ and find the package openoffice.org-style-tango*.deb
Those of you who are considering moving away from Windows to Linux for your desktop may need to be dispelled of a certain myth. No matter what distribution you ultimately choose to download, Linux is by no means free of financial cost.
There is one class of software whose authors want you to copy their work for free and encourage you to distribute it to others. It’s occasionally called Open Source software and it’s described by some as being “free”, since you can don’t have to purchase a licence in order to own or use it.
This tutorial shows how you can install InnoTek's VirtualBox on a Ubuntu desktop. With VirtualBox you can create and run guest operating systems (virtual machines) such as Linux and Windows under a host operating system.
What a perfect day. I'm in London today, and went to the Arsenal vs. Bolton match with Mark Shuttleworth, founder of Ubuntu. Mark isn't a big football fan, but he indulged my Arsenal fixation and even treated me like a rational human being, which I decidedly am not when it comes to football. Arsenal won 2-1. All is right in the universe.
Just 9 days after the official announcement about the new Spread Firefox project Foxiewire, membership has jumped from 12 to 101.

Linux System Administration is a book for a seasoned Linux or UNIX administrator. The book attempts to describe day-to-day administration, maintenance and advanced issues commonly faced by Linux system administrator. Book covers wild verity of topics.
When I heard a sharp and continuous beeping sound, I had just grabbed my mug to enjoy my evening tea with the movie I was trying to watch. Without asking any questions to my computer (implicitly or explicitly), I had put down the mug and reached for the reset button on my PC. This was the third time in 45 minutes and it had never happened before.
When it comes to Rss Readers Linux had a slow start.
The Rss Reader is a new way for you to monitor your favorite blogs or news sites and make sure that you are alerted whenever new content or articles appear, all this without the email spam.
Here’s a list with the Best 13 Rss Readers for Linux fans:
1. Google Reader and Bloglines
Nvu is a WYSIWYG editor for designing and maintaining web pages. WYSIWYG, pronounced "we-see-wig", stands for "What You See Is What You Get", which means that the page that you look at while you write and edit, looks just like the way the page will look when it is viewed through a web browser (as opposed to writing HTML code where you have to guess and test how it may look).
There's no dearth of Linux distributions. This isn't the first time I've said this. Neither will it be the last. But why the chaos? Why are there more failed distributions than successful ones? Ask the distro guy, Ladislav Bodnar, maintainer of DistroWatch.com.
The updates keep coming in at a steady rate every day. They range anywhere from 20 to 40 packages/update on a given day. It will be interesting to see what is finally touched up and cleaned up for the April 19th official release of 7.04.
Some good news: The display problem with the NetworkManager was fixed with today's updates. It now displays the state of the underlying networking system.
A week or two ago I was at Frys and came across The Official Ubuntu Book. I've heard a lot about this flavor of Linux lately and thought it was high time I started working with it.
The first time I was introduced to FreeBSD - a BSD variant, I came away really impressed. In my opinion, from an end user's perspective, the only difference between a BSD and Linux is the difference in licencing.
As stated in a blog entry from Free Gamer, some people are about to revive the popular TuxRacer successor PPRacer, which developement stagnated more than a year ago.
Recently I’ve been experimenting with Beryl on my laptop, and I have to say that I’m very impressed by the project. Sure its a relatively new project, and there quite a few bugs in it, however once you get the hang of it you really enjoy the beryl-desktop experience.
So I saw surface’s post on a Linux Alarm Clock using xmms. In spirit of choice, I will show you my Mplayer Alarm Clock!
First I need to create a playlist. You can add the file you want to play (with fullpath) to a file. I do this by first going to the directory I want to make a playlist from, and execute the following command:
find "`pwd`" -name "*.mp3" -print >> playlist;
