phoronix: Have you recently upgraded to AMD's Spider platform with their quad-core Phenom processor and are running Linux? If so, and are experiencing kernel panics, stability problems, and even a psychedelic Ubuntu logo, you're not alone. In this article, we'll be looking at the AMD Phenom 9500 performance under Ubuntu 7.10.
serpentine.com: A while ago, I had a need to monitor filesystem modifications, and I looked around for Python bindings for the Linux kernel’s inotify subsystem. At the time, the only existing library was pyinotify, so being a lazy sort, I naturally tried to use it.
junauza.blogspot: A text editor is a type of program used for editing plain text files. Here is a list of valuable free/open-source text editors with graphical user interface (GUI).
fanaticattack.com: The OpenDocument Format Alliance (ODF Alliance) is an organization dedicated to educating on the benefits and opportunities of ODF. Launched in March 2006, the ODF Alliance now has over 480 member organizations in 53 countries.
phoronix: In the second NDA-free documentation dump, AMD has just released programming data on the M76 and RS690 graphics processors. In this article, we have information on this just-released data as well as what else the community can expect in the way of documentation in the near future.
kmandla.wordpress: Don’t look now, but it could become a reality. A thread here describes the rationale for a snapshot of Arch at periodic intervals, allowing users to bounce between stable points, rather than use Arch in the rolling fashion it has now.
OSWeekly: Despite Firebird eventually maturing into Firefox that we all know today, I can't believe that I have yet to find any indication that the Mozilla team is planning on improving the really lame handling of RSS feeds. Flock is providing users with so much more and despite this, Firefox continues to remain with most of the same features it always has - why? I know. It's Google.
telegraph.co.uk: Think of the innovation that's happened in the last decade - the emergence of Google, YouTube and Facebook - and then consider for a moment the comparative lack of innovation in one crucial area: our web browsers, the software we use to access the internet.
libervis.com: Think gOS. It might not be such a bad advice after all. It's been hyped up, but it sold out. And there may be lessons in its deployment and success for all of us Free Software and GNU/Linux advocates! How can we trust any central entity with our computing activities and our data, an entity which is at that a private profit-driven, shareholder pressured public company?
linuxfud.wordpress: Who Says Linux Doesn’t Have an Extraordinary MMORPG (Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game) that’s extremely easer to install (yes, like in Microsoft Windows)?? I love this game!
Newsweek: At next week's Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, the semiconductor giant Intel was planning to demonstrate a prototype of the celebrated One Laptop Per Child "XO" computer that runs not with the original AMD microprocessor but its own chip. But now Intel has broken with OLPC, and once again, One Laptop's founder, Nicholas Negroponte, is charging that the chip giant is messing with his charitable efforts for its own corporate ends.
quantumsaint.wordpress: During my glorious 10 day vacation I decided to get my hands on the Kubuntu 7.10 DVD iso. It was just waiting to be unleashed upon my new 64 bit dual core setup. No dice. Everything seemed to be going fine and then it gets to a point where it just stops.
Also: The 64 bit Mystery
forbes: The reviews are in--and they don't matter one damn bit. Microsoft's Windows Vista went on sale a year ago this month, and despite poor marks from the tech press and heaping helpings of scorn from Mac and Linux aficionados, the operating system has turned into a money machine for Microsoft. Just look at the numbers.
Linux Today: My colleague Bruce Byfield made some good points in his recent blog entry "Conspiracy theorists and free software." In it, he outlines his concerns that there is a vocal faction in the free software community that is too obsessed with a certain proprietary company, and that their rants and raves amount to so much rabble-rousing, which ultimately hurts the community at large.
montanalinux.org: I recently attended a Linux Installfest and the primary distribution recommended by those heading up the event was Ubuntu. That's all well and good but during their Linux dog-and-pony-show a statement was made regarding Red Hat that struck me.
linux.com: Speaking Hangman is a cross-platform bilingual game that's both fun and educational, and suitable for the whole family.
rudd-o.com: A long long time ago, in a gal… in an older computer, I had Fedora. RPM — the packaging system in Fedora — was amazing in several aspects. Fast-forward to my contemporary Kubuntu system.
mandrake.tips.4.free.fr: Since a few years, Ubuntu has been grabbing headlines in the mainstream press. We've seen and read the hype. But whether it's functional, usable, yes even pleasant to use, that's the thing.
PCLinuxOS Magazine, January 2008 (Issue 17) is available to download. Some highlights include Common Information Commands, How to repair kdeinit problems, and It's Magic!
techtarget.com: New Linux tools and updates kept IT security hacks at bay in 2007. That said, new problems -- such as security risks in virtual machines -- cropped up last year. Here's my round-up of the big Linux security events, software releases and controversies that cropped up in 2007.
