So you switched to the AMD64 architecture, installed the 'pure64′ flavour of Debian on it? Well, get prepared for some problems: no flashplugin for Firefox, no win32 codecs for MPlayer, no OpenOffice. Here's a way to install it along with the win32 and RealPlayer codecs, LIVE.com streaming support, and more.
If you have multiple servers with similar or identical configurations (such as nodes in a cluster), it's often difficult to make sure the contents and configuration of those servers are identical. It's even more difficult when you need to make configuration modifications from the command line, knowing you'll have to execute the exact same command on a large number of systems (better get coffee first). You could try writing a script to perform the task automatically, but sometimes scripting is overkill for the work to be done. Fortunately, there's another way to execute commands on multiple hosts simultaneously.
The new installer is barely usable, it should be considered a pre-alpha, or more of a proof-of-concept: after you install the system, you can't do much with it!

As part of the drive to cut costs and future saving, Singapore Housing Development Board decided to migrate its business applications on the Internet and intranet to Linux as its strategic operating system.
In the open source software market, you have to provide excellent service and provide easy access to your support personnel. Business people who believe they can built a viable company on unique software alone will fail. Unfortunately, not many successful service models exist and even consultants in this area have a difficult time managing a service-oriented function.
Valgrind is a CPU simulator which is used by KDE and many other projects to profile and debug our programmes. In the interview below Valgrind author Julian Seward talks to KDE Dot News about why he developed Valgrind, how you can use it and, most importantly, where the name comes from. Julian will be giving a talk on Valgrind next Sunday at FOSDEM.
An attempt to bring Firefox-style tabbed browsing of e-mail messages to the upcoming version 2.0 of Mozilla's Thunderbird e-mail client has come to a standstill.
One of the strongholds preventing computer enthusiasts from switching to Linux is due to the lack of retail games available under Linux. However, TransGaming's Cedega software allows a majority of Microsoft Windows games to run seamlessly under Linux with very little to no end-user modifications required. TransGaming Cedega operates by emulating the Windows 32 APIs including Direct3D, DirectInput, and DirectSound. With the most recent version of Cedega (v5.1) hitting the web last week, we have conducted a series of tests to examine its performance impact on some of the popular titles.
Distrowatch says that 'Hedinux is a beginner-friendly, i686-optimised desktop Linux distribution built from scratch.' Hedinux released their 2006.1-alpha recently and Tuxmachines thought, "yippee, freshmeat!" Well, it turns out Hedinux isn't exactly brand new, but they were to us. This is what we found when we booted their livecd.
It doesn't happen often that representatives of a major Linux distribution call on this part of the world.

Someone stops you on the street and asks "Hey, do you know what time it is?" You tell him and continue on your way. But what if it was hundreds of thousands of people every day, because they didn't know who else to ask? You might decide to not answer any more. That's the situation that some important Internet time servers are in, and some simple changes in your computer's configuration can help ease the strain.
Working with free and open source software, one frequently hears terms such as bugs, updates, and patches. When developers come across shortcomings in their software, instead of repackaging the software with the changes, they can provide a patchfile that contains details of all required changes. Two important tools used in the process are diff, which creates a patchfile, and patch, which applies it. You can use both tools with text or HTML files.
