Firefox 3 development keeps going on and more details of what features are at least being considered for inclusion keep appearing as well. A major topic is the revision of some currently available extensions for their possible inclusion in Firefox 3.
If the X-Video movie playback bug with x86_64 Linux previously affected you, fear no more! Introducing the AMD fglrx 8.34.8 Linux display driver corrects this long-standing issue. There have also been a few bugs corrected in 8.34.8 along with official Radeon Xpress X1250 support, but other than that, this month serves as more of a maintenance release.
In an attempt to boost its sagging fortunes, Dell, one of the leading PC makers in America, recently launched the Dell Idea Storm website to solicit ideas on how to get Dell back to the top. The most popular idea so far? Desktops with pre-installed Linux.
In the crowded Linux packaging landscape, it would be easy to overlook Damon Courtney's InstallJammer. However, InstallJammer, which provides self-executing installers for Linux and other operating systems is well worth a look. Version 1.1 was released recently with a number of new features, including support for RPM and Debian package databases, console-based installs, new platforms, and much more.
After thirteen years as a loyal Red Hat and Fedora user, I reached my limit today, when an attempt to upgrade one (1) package pitched me into a four-hour marathon of dependency chasing, at the end of which an attempt to get around a trivial file conflict rendered my system unusable.
I have always believed in open community processes. Those companies who have shown a commitment to open processes have been more successful in the Open Source and free software world. Creating an open community is only half of the challenge though, I am keen to achieve the dizzy heights of open and effective community.
The open-source community is being roiled by the recent deal between Microsoft and Novell. The Free Software Foundation wants to use the ongoing revision of the General Public License that controls Linux and other major open-source programs to hamstring this deal and to prevent other software distributors, whether proprietary or open-source, from adopting anything similar.
The software industry isn't what it used to be. Open source software, globalization and outsourcing have irrevocably changed the sector and the skills needed by those who choose to work in it. The Master of Science (MS) program in Software Management announced by Carnegie Mellon West, will offer students a hands-on, team-oriented education that both bolsters and breaks with tradition.
This short article describes how you can search for missing packages with apt-file on Debian and Ubuntu systems. apt-file allows you to search for a file name, and it gives back the name(s) of the package(s) containing that file so that you can install the appropriate package.
The latest release of Mono, an open source implementation of Microsoft's .Net platform, bundles a Visual Basic compiler authored by Rolf Bjarne. The compiler -- itself written in Visual Basic -- will ease development and deployment of applications written in one of the most popular programing languages.
Theory versus practice - I don't think there’s a better solution in making sure that software developers are ready for the challenges of tomorrow than catching them while they are still in school, and then plugging them into an open source software project.
The find utility on linux allows you to pass in a bunch of interesting arguments, including one to execute another command on each file. We’ll use this in order to figure out what files are older than a certain number of days, and then use the rm command to delete them.
How to write a perl script that can monitor my disk space under UNIX or Linux and send me an email alert? There is a nice perl system routine called Perl df or Filesys::DiskSpace.
I mentioned recently that I planned to keep using TrueCrypt in GNU/Linux since I had used it profitably in Windows. I’m reevaluating my plan. Maybe it was time to figure out how to encrypt the entire drive with a non-container method, and I wanted to look away from TrueCrypt since I’m interested in crypto diversity.
Well I’m coming to the close of a second day now with KDE. I have to say that this second day wasn’t quite as pleasant as the first. I don’t know if it is simlpy a big work load that is causing me stress but I am getting frustrated in not being able to get as much done as I want.
For most of our home computing needs, I've long since transitioned from a Window's environment to FOSS alternatives. Edubuntu as our operating system with the standard list of applications. However, I still dual-boot our system to accommodate a few hold-outs running on Windows.
“The open source software movement has been one of the successes of the digital age” or so says Clay Shirky of New York University's Graduate Interactive Telecommunications Program in the latest issue of Harvard Business Review. Yes, sure, but he's just buttering us up.
Most of us visit a lot of websites, and we have a need to login to many of these sites. We know that it would be a bad idea to use the same password for all online accounts, so we create unique passwords for each site. However, it is impossible for us to remember all of these passwords so we tell Firefox to remember them for us.
SimplyMEPIS 6.5 Beta 6 is now available for downloading and testing, the project announced today. The new release allows users to optionally select between two NVIDIA drivers, the latest v1.0.9746 or a legacy version (v1.0.9631), to maximize Beryl support for both newer and older chips, the project said.
What's happening in cooker recently? Some things include: since Xorg 7.2 ( x11-server-1.2 ), Nvidia users were having issues when trying to use 3D desktop, Olivier Blin gave the procedure to test Metisse under Cooker, Colin Guthrie pointed out the fact that with the new build system 64 bits Cooker was nearly in sync with 32 bits Cooker, and Warly will be missed.
