liquidat: I recently got a new “multimedia” keyboard which comes along with a set of extra keys. While my keyboard needed some initial manual configuration it works now almost without problems using Lineak.
linux.com: Managing disk space used to be a royal pain for admins and users. Running out of disk space often meant reinstalling Linux or spending a few hours with tools like Parted to resize partitions. However, using the Logical Volume Manager (LVM) tools, you can grow, shrink, and manage disk space with very little hassle.
desktoplinux: If everything goes well, Ubuntu 7.10, Gutsy Gibbon, the next community version of the popular Linux distribution, will appear in October. It will not, however, include the latest and greatest X window server and utilities: Xserver 1.4 and X.Org 7.3.
mozilla links: Microformats support is one of the most relevant features coming to Firefox 3. To talk about microformats and their progress in their way to Firefox 3 final, I talked with Michael Kaply, the owner of the microformats support module and author of Operator, a powerful extension that allows Firefox to interact with microformats.
tomdryer.com: I use some common Linux tools to remotely support my Grandparents’ PC. These tools are SSH and X11vnc. X11vnc lets me take over the display, and the VNC traffic is tunneled with SSH. They can be a bit of work to set up, but work beautifully.
enterprise linux log: California-based IP gurus Palamida emailed me this week with some intriguing GPLv3 information that I thought I’d share with everyone this morning. Apparently all the GPLv3 haters can go to lunch, because the little license that could is seeing adoption rates of approximately 14% week-over-week.
Richard M. Stallman: On the evening of August 15 I was answering email in the offices of COSOLIG, the free software organization of the Universidad Inca Garcilaso de la Vega in Lima. I was just about to do a batch mail transfer when the earthquake began. It was strong enough to shake my body in an interesting way, but insufficient to damage a concrete building, or even to make a bookshelf fall over.
If your UNIX system lacks a tool you need, chances are you can find an apt solution in the enormous inventory of software available online. This month, learn how to build software from source code.
about.com: Tremulous is a FPS (fast-paced shooter) game. However, the gameplay is unlike most other FPS games because not only do you get to pick whether you want to be a human or an alien, but there are also other customizations allowed.
onlamp blogs: The spirit of the open source movement operates under the assumption that software’s most valued resource, its code, should be freely available to everyone. Despite the obvious advantages of making code readily available to anyone around the world, there are some cultural differences that complicate the open source movement.
vista.blorge.com: As you may recall, outgoing PC Magazine editor Jim Louderback had almost nothing good to say about Vista in his most recent column. Just about everyone I know that has used Vista is going to stick with it and Information Week poses the reasons why that not so strangely, I agree with.
Matrox Graphics, the leading manufacturer of multi-display graphics solutions for professionals, introduces new 1.4.5 Linux drivers providing enhanced features and additional support to its Matrox EpicA TC2 and EpicA TC4 multi-display graphics cards for thin computing.
LWN: Stable kernel 18.104.22.168 has been released. This one contains a single patch - a security fix for the signal vulnerability which allows, under some circumstances, an arbitrary signal to be sent to a setuid process.

seopher: This may not be as absurd a claim as you may think, especially when you take into consideration the minor backlash that Ubuntu has experienced. So is PCLinuxOS the next poster-child of usable Linux?
techzone: We all believe that open source is associated with free, as in free speech, software. As a layman, I started thinking about the sanity of people who work so hard to produce such quality software products and then allow anyone to simply download and use them for free. What the heck!! Where the hell do they make money ?? How can so many people simply be doing charity ??
zdnet: While there has been some controversy over whether LTSP support would be added to SUSE’s so-called EduCD, to be distributed with their fourth quarter version 10.3 release, a wide variety of software slated for inclusion in their education-centered set of add-ons is now available for download and testing.
