Filed under
Gentoo
HowTos

futurepages.net: This is the second part of the Gentoo Tutorials. In the first section “Minimal Gentoo Installation” we have built a fresh Gentoo system using the minimal install disk and downloading the stages/ports and building the kernel. This left us with a bare Gentoo OS. In this second Gentoo Tutorial we are going to customize and add different software to the system.

Filed under
HowTos

blog.mypapit.net: The new release of Ubuntu 7.10 (Gutsy Gibbon) is just around the corner! With all these new features and latest softwares from repositories, I think it makes no sense not to upgrade to Gutsy Gibbon unless if you don’t have a fast internet connection or way too crazy to upgrade.

Why SUSE Why ?

Filed under
SUSE

techzone: SUSE 10.3 was released and I had to try it. All geared up, I started downloading the torrent of the KDE version. I think this the the worst install experience I had in last one year. I was spoiled by the likes of PCLinuxOS, Ubuntu, Granular and Mint Linux.

Filed under
Ubuntu

Zero Effect: Every time I try a new distro I find my self reverting back to Ubuntu soon after I install it. The first one was back when Mandriva 2007 spring was released. The second time was just yesterday after installing openSUSE 10.3 gnome cd.

Ten Ways to Make More Humane Open Source Software

Filed under
OSS

humanized.com: A lot of bandwidth has been wasted arguing over the lack of usability in open-source software/free software (henceforth “OSS”). The debate continues at this moment on blogs, forums, and Slashdot comment threads. Meanwhile, as these arguments swirl, I’ve been quietly relying on OSS to get my work done.

Advantages of open source: Revisited

Filed under
OSS

Tristan Rhodes: I feel that is important for me to further analyze the benefits of open source software. This post should provide a more balanced view of open source and the intrinsic benefits that free software provides.

Installing MonoDevelop from Source on Ubuntu

Filed under
HowTos

how-to-geek: After reading a post from my friend Daniel about the new release of MonoDevelop, I decided to try and install it… which is when I realized that the installation from source is so painful I'd better figure it out and share it with everybody else.

Filed under
HowTos

blog.platinumsolutions.com: Ubuntu works great with my Dell D820 Laptop and had no problems with my sound card, video driver, and power management. I was definitely a happy camper so I thought I'd share how to create a dual boot environment with Ubuntu + XP.

0.1 + 0.1 = Awn 0.2

Filed under
Software

njpatel.blogspot.com: Well there you have it, Awn 0.2 has been released! With over six months since the last release, you'd think we were working on something as complicated as Gnome, but I think there are enough new features to show where the time has gone Wink.

OpenSUSE 10.3: first look

Filed under
SUSE

ariya.blogspot: I know I should be doing something "useful", but the fresh-from-oven OpenSUSE 10.3 is just too good to skip. Thus, I decided to waste a weekend to try it. In short: it's very solid and attractive, without doubt the best OpenSUSE release so far.

Filed under
Software

polishlinux: ROX is one of the genuinely interesting file managers available for the major platforms - GNU/Linux, Unix, Mac OS X, and Windows (under Cygwin). As can be inferred from the manager’s website, ROX-Filer is a project aimed to move the best features of RISC OS onto Linux and Unix platforms. Its small footprint and configurability are its unquestionable hallmarks.

Why did GNUstep never really take off?

Filed under
Software

Pain and Glory: “GNUstep is a cross-platform, object-oriented framework for desktop application development." Anyone who has used NeXTSTEP, OPENSTEP or Mac OS X knows the inherent power and quality of this API. So one would think that GNUstep would be quite popular.

Luis Villa’s Blog: Having had a good week, I’m playing with toys a little bit today. (Sadly, not enough free time to make it to GNOME Summit.)1 Some notes, forthwith, from Fedora 8 test 3, with a few supplements as well from a month old Ubuntu Tribe CD.2

Kubuntu: Nothing much has changed in 2 years

Filed under
Ubuntu

distrogue.blogspot.com: f you're reading this on Kubuntu, then I honestly feel sorry for you. It's not that I hate KDE (in fact, I love it, even v3.5), it's just how badly misused it is in Kubuntu.

    Vivaldi's Ruarí Ødegaard just informed us a few moments ago that Vivaldi 1.10 will be the next major version of the free and cross-platform web browser based on the latest Chromium technologies, not Vivaldi 2.0 as many of you have hoped. Vivaldi 1.9 just hit the streets the other day as world's first web browser to ship with the Ecosia search engine enabled by default to help reforest the plane, and it now looks like Vivaldi's devs never sleep, and development of Vivaldi 1.10 starts today with the first snapshot, Vivaldi 1.10.829.3, which introduces a long-anticipated feature: Docked Developer Tools!
