If you record TV shows using your MythTV DVR, you may want to play them on an iPod, a PSP, or even through a Windows Media Center system. Another desire might be to burn your recordings onto a DVD.
Generates ASCII Art (both the "pure", or black and white, and colour, or colour, varieties) from any JPEG, GIF or PNG you care to send it.
We're in the homestretch now. The only planned release candidate of openSUSE 10.2 was released a few days ago and final is expected to be released to the public on December 7. From this point on only showstopper and security bugfixes get integrated, so we are able to get a real good idea of 10.2 from this rc. I must say, from what I've seen, this is going to be a great release.
There is a quick way to type both MySQL database and table names quickly by enabling MySQL auto completion feature. This is called automatic rehashing.
apt-listbugs is a tool which retrieves bug reports from the Debian Bug Tracking System and lists them. Especially, it is intended to be invoked before each upgrade by apt in order to check whether the upgrade/installation is safe.
In my previous blog entry I wrote about the joys of upgrading hardware and having it Just Work (tm) in the Free Software operating system of your choice. Of course, I have not explored all the possibilities yet.
Maildir saves each mail in a separate file, it is much easier than it used to be to manipulate the mails. Everyone can write some simple script to do some cleanup based on its needs. A while ago I have stumbled across this python script that does most of the things I needed to cleanup maildir folders.
When XANDROS Desktop was released as the “Platform for Your Digital Life” I felt that they had finally brought the Linux Desktop to the mainstream. Now, I find that they have made it even easier for Novice and experienced Linux users with their all new, just released XANDROS DESKTOP PROFESSIONAL VER 4.
One thing lacking in Gnome is the ability to change the color scheme of your chosen theme. More precisely, gnome-theme-manager doesn’t currently allow you to customize your colors. You can change your icons, window borders, and controls, but you can’t change the color scheme. The color scheme is set within the chosen Theme itself and currently cannot be easily changed/edited by a user. This is about to change.
Previously on Playing with partitions I discussed how I fdisked an SD Ram card now as promised here is how I repartitioned a running server with an active oracle database.
As the custodian of IT at UWC, I will be pursuing a full
investigation into a total exit strategy for all Novell products from
the University of the Western Cape.
APTonCD is a tool with a graphical interface which allows you to create one or more CDs or DVDs (you choose the type of media) with all of the packages you’ve downloaded via APT-GET or APTITUDE, creating a removable repository that you can use on other computers.
Moglen is concerned that worried customers - and ergo falling revenues - could force Red Hat into a deal with Microsoft similar to Novell's and Ballmer keeps baiting the hook by saying he's "willing to do the same deal with Red Hat and other Linux distributors," giving Red Hat's base the ammo it needs.
It seems like a great idea: making a computer that's somewhere between the size of a cell phone and a laptop, for people to carry around and surf the Web. The Pepper Pad 3 is a new entry in this difficult field. It's a big slab-style tablet, almost 6 by 12 inches wide and an inch thick, with a small keyboard and a 7-inch touch screen.
Tensions are already high over Novell's patent agreement with Microsoft, but Ubuntu founder Mark Shuttleworth's invitation to openSUSE developers "concerned about the long term consequences" has kicked the tension up a notch.
The combination of Eclipse, DB2 Express-C, and WebSphere Application Server Community Edition -- all free to download, use, and deploy -- is an excellent from-prototype-to-production suite for all of your Java and Java enterprise development needs. This tutorial shows you how to move an application from a conventional design to one based on Ajax technology -- all within the friendly and familiar environment of the Kick-start your Java apps suite.
I've seen a number of folks assert that what Novell has done in the patent peace agreement with Microsoft is no different than what Sun did in its agreement with Microsoft in 2004, so I thought it would be worthwhile to post the Sun agreement again, so you can see the difference. As you will see, as unfortunate as the Sun deal was, it had limited effect on GNU/Linux developers or end users.
After a long time I decided to change the linux distribution. I did so after the problems with the apt-get and update of the debian linux distribution (sid). I downloaded the iso image of ububntu linux version 6.10, burned the image and installed.
Greylisting is yet another way for preventing your mailbox getting full of spam. A famous spam fighter software is spamassassin which filter emails.
