FreeNX is a system that allows you to access your desktop from another machine over the internet. You can use this to login graphically to your desktop from a remote location. One example of its use would be to have a FreeNX server set up on your home computer, and graphically logging in to the home computer from your work computer, using a FreeNX client.
As the R200 generation GPUs are no longer supported by the main fglrx display driver after the 8.28.8 release, I have written a script to allow the 8.28.8 display drivers to properly build on Fedora Core 6.
This guide describes how to install and use xen-tools, xen-shell, and Argo on a Debian system. All three packages provide useful tools for the administration of virtual Xen machines. Xen-tools is a collection of Perl scripts that allow you to easily create, update, and delete Xen guest domains. The xen-shell provides a command-line interface to owners of Xen domains so that they can manage their Xen domains without the help of the server administrator. And with Argo, you can control Xen domains through a web interface or through a menu on the command line.
First and foremost we must stand together in solidarity and not let the enemies of freedom succeed in their game of divide and conquer. If Novell has violated the letter of the GPL as well as its spirit, those of us who maintain packages that are distributed today as part of SuSE/Novell GNU/Linux must exercise our option to issue cease and desist orders. When dealing with a dog with rabies, even if once a loved family pet, it is best to put such an animal down before it also has the opportunity to infect others. As for thugs like Microsoft, they must be treated as the cancer to business and society that they are.
Too often technology companies ask their customers to adapt to them. Today we are adapting to our customers," said Ron Hovsepian, president and CEO of Novell. Take this survey and let us know what you think.
In this feature, we explore the plug-in components for MythTV and describe the capacities and functions of each one. We also give you a small taste of what's possible using MythTV's plug-in architecture. Without a modular framework, MythTV would fail to qualify as a convergent technology appliance.
There's a new bad guy in town. Just when you thought that Microsoft and SCO were the only gangsters in the software world, a new player has been muscling in on their territory -- or so you'd think from reading all the hype on the Internet. Reports tend to be confused and not many people have bothered to find out the truth: so that's what I've gone out and done.
As Microsoft gears up to release a new version of Windows Vista, the hype about operating systems is in the air again. For most people, the question is whether to upgrade or not, but if you want to try out a new operating system, check out the latest version of Ubuntu.
Shipping on November 3 was GoboLinux 013. For those that are unfamiliar with this install and LiveCD distribution is that among its many differences, it breaks away from the historical UNIX directory hierarchy. It is also a distribution tagged as not needing a package manager because the filesystem is the package manager. New in GoboLinux 013 is X.Org 7.1, KDE 3.5.3, GCC 4.1.1, and the Linux 2.6.16 kernel. Phoronix has some nice screenshots.
Which has more leverage in the marketplace — A) disclosure or secrecy? Which is more supportive of growing markets — A) public infrastructure or private platforms? Which is better for inventive entrepreneurs — A) sharing one's great ideas to drive development and adoption, or patenting and keeping secret one's "intellectual property"?
Many email administrators are turning to DNSBLs -- DNS Block Lists -- as useful weapons in the arsenal against spam. There are DNSBLs covering many aspects of the security spectrum related to spam. This article will introduce another useful application for the DNSBLs. I'll show how to use this valuable information source to diagnose and monitor the overall security level of a given network.
WordPress is a state-of-the-art semantic personal publishing platform with a focus on aesthetics, web standards, and usability. What a mouthful. WordPress is both free and priceless at the same time.
It has become something of a cliché that Linux has reached a critical point in its development and adoption. However, this is especially true now when we look at what events are lined up to occur in the near future, and particularly in the desktop area. Can we expect a sudden and dramatic shift to Linux on the desktop?
This brief guide shares the key steps necessary to create and manage other users, helps clarify some essential differences with other flavors, and provides tips regarding "root" user. Perhaps most importantly, these steps help empower the use of your Ubuntu system to become far more than just another desktop PC.
If you're looking for a crash course on Linux security, this is your guide to getting started. Bone up on the basics of working from the command line, get a few open source security tools, and discover SELinux and IT no-nos to avoid.
Some months back I read about the GPLv3 for the first time. Just like many I was compelled by the arguments of Linus against it more then by the arguments from the FSF for this new license. The other day I talked to some KOffice developers and we discussed the software patents issue and how that would actually work in real life.
The 18.104.22.168 stable kernel release is available. There is a long list of fixes in this one, at least one of those fixes is security-related.
Last week, I began a countdown of the ten reasons Linux and BSD are far superior to Windows. I received a huge response to the first installment, so without further delay, here's the final four reasons and my official response to some of the comments and criticisms I've received.
