Pointers are basically the same as any other variable. However, what is different about them is that instead of containing actual data, they contain a pointer to the memory location where information can be found. This is a very important concept, and many programs and ideas rely on pointers as the basis of their design, linked lists for example.
This year’s Python Convention , being held this weekend in Dallas Texas, started off with an inspiring presentation by an engineer from the One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) project  (Ivan Krstić) , showing off the hardware features of the new “OLPC XO 1” prototype, as well as some “dangerous ideas” about its software design: a large part of the user space code for the laptops will be i
Krita progress over the past few months has been slower than I’d have liked, for a couple of reasons: porting to Qt4 was quite hard. But! Banish the gloom! There are some really cool and interesting developments. Not only have we got a most impressive ToDo, sometimes items even get done! I already mentioned the flake integration. But there’s more…
I configured Apache2 on a newly installed openSUSE 10.2 using YaST, which is how SUSE wants you to do it (rather than editing the files directly).
Just when I was beginning to feel upbeat about all the events and innovations going on in China this year, I see this thread from the CentOS List .
I finally got some more time this evening to try out various applications with Ubuntu 7.04. But before I get started, I need to clarify a statement I made earlier. Not only are the Ubuntu developers deserving of praise, but so are the Debian developers as well.
I have yet again wrapped up another day using KDE as my main desktop environment. I have to say that both camps really do have quite a lot to offer. I have come to appreciate some of the KDE apps very much–klipper is very convenient so far.
The 2007 road map for the Ubuntu Linux operating system includes continuing its focus on the desktop, paying more attention to the server and garnering additional corporate support.
The divide between totally-free vs. free-when-we-can got needlessly wider this week when open source practitioner Eric Raymond issued a press release announcing his departure from Fedora to Ubuntu, citing--among other concerns--Fedora's adherence to purely free software as a reason for his departure.
Two days ago the first incarnation of sidux was released, code-named "Chaos". sidux is a desktop-oriented distribution. It comes as a Live CD based on the "unstable" branch of Debian, but is easily able to install onto harddisk from the running Live CD using a completely new graphical installer frontend.
So long for texts like "Fedora is a set of projects, sponsored by Red Hat and guided by the Fedora Project Board." The governance model is broken. The project management is broken. The whole public image of Fedora Linux is a fake.
The KDE project announces the availability of the third development snapshot of the upcoming KDE 4. This snapshot is meant as a reference for developers who want to play with parts of the new technology KDE 4 will provide.
In my article series regarding software installation on Linux the last article outlined what my position and also point of view is. This article deals tries to give a general overview about the current techniques available on Linux. This is done mainly by linking to different articles and posts.
LWN.net has an interesting article [Sub req'd] detailing the contributors to the Linux 2.6.20 kernel. The author attempts to determine just who (as in individuals) and who (as in their employers) writes the Linux kernel. It's not an easy task.
One Laptop Per Child comes closer to being a reality every day — and every day, more people are looking for ways to get involved with the OLPC project. It will still be quite a while before the XO systems are available for broad distribution, but people can see for themselves what the XO is all about by downloading Sugar, the core of the OLPC Human Interface.
I’ve taken the plunge from windows to Linux. And I can truthfully say, I’m not looking back. My disto of choice, Ubuntu 6.10 edgy eft. I’ve compiled a list of the top 10 must have programs. This is not a complete list by any means, but it should save you a lot of time when you make the switch.
Mozilla Corp. updated Firefox Friday to patch 14 vulnerabilities, three of them critical, but pushed out the new versions without fixing several flaws.
One of the good things about OpenOffice.org is its ability to use different database engines. Just give it the right driver, and OpenOffice.org can connect to virtually any database system, including MySQL. However, deciding what database driver to use and configuring a connection between MySQL and OpenOffice.org can be a bit tricky. Let's walk through the process.
The GNU/Linux community is facing a great opportunity that it must take advantage of, the turn of the tide of 64bit computing over an increasingly obsolete 32bit computing. The time is ticking away and if we want our operating system to dominate on the desktop we must act now, even if that means making some compromises.
In early January I reported how an update, applied to my SLED (Suse Linux Enterprise Desktop) 10 system before the Christmas break, led to the failure of the system's graphic (X11) desktop, and the failure of Gnome's window manager. Well, the same thing happened again this week, almost.
