This is not, by any means a comprehensive look at the differences between KDE and Gnome, but it should give new users a small taste of their different strengths and weaknesses and their philosophical approaches to usability.
Fedora Core is often called a test version of Red Hat, but many believe that it deserves to be recognised as a fully fledged distribution in its own right. Led by a community and sponsored by Red Hat, Fedora is probably one of the most popular GNU/Linux distributions in the world, with users including Wikipedia. It recently reached its sixth release, so let's see what's inside.
This tutorial walks you through implementing disk quotas for both users and groups on Linux, using a virtual filesystem, which is a filesystem created from a disk file. Since quotas work on a per-filesystem basis, this is a way to implement quotas on a sub-section, or even multiple subsections of your drive, without reformatting. This tutorial also covers quotactl, or quota's C interface, by way of an example program that can store disk usage in a SQLite database for monitoring data usage over time.
I've always thought that mosaics were an interesting art form, so when I ran across Metapixel a while back I noted it as an app worth checking out. Metapixel is a single purpose tool, but it does its job very well. In no time you can create an impressive photo mosaic using your existing photos and a couple commands.

- Linux users to Microsoft: What 'balance sheet liability'?
- OIN speaks out on the Novell/Microsoft pact
Robert Stimson of analyst firm W.R. Hambrecht initiated coverage of Red Hat with a bang on Tuesday. Despite facing threats from giant Oracle and the strange alliance between former enemies Microsoft and Novell that obviously targets Red Hat, the Hatters and their stock were labeled as a “buy” with a target stock price of $21.
A few weeks ago I started seeing the “Blue Screen of Death” on my Sony Vaio PCG-K35 laptop every 10 minutes or so, making the computer nothing more than an overpriced 7 lb. brick. I pulled it out last week and was unable to find the activation keys to Windows XP Pro and Microsoft Office that came with the laptop from the OEM. This weekend I installed the Ubuntu Linux 6.10.
French telecommunications gear maker Alcatel SA said Tuesday it has sued Microsoft Corp. in a U.S. federal court for patent infringement.
Open Country, a next-generation systems management software company, today announced the debut of OCM™ Webmin Plus, an enhanced release of the popular Webmin open source IT system administration tool. OCM Webmin Plus, developed in partnership with Webmin creator Jamie Cameron, is the first open source product from Open Country, providing a new, low-cost way to easily manage Linux computing environments.
I have been using Unix-like systems for 25 years and Linux for half of that. So I guess I have a bit of Linux-specific experience. Yesterday I actually played with Linux a bit. That is, like a casual user might. And my experience was probably like what a casual user would have. You see, I had just build a speaker cabinet and tossed a couple of speakers in it. The PA amplifier was what was going to drive them but I needed an audio source other than my niece screaming into a microphone.
histring simply highlights strings using ANSI terminal escape codes. It is extremely small and lighting fast. I almost use it everywhere in my script where I need a quick peek into large output. Moreover, you almost don't need to learn it, as its syntax is almost identical to grep.
The KDE e.V. Quarterly Report is now available for July to September 2006. Topics covered include the outcomes from the 2006 membership meeting, the status of the Technical Working Group's improved charter, the new press channel from the Marketing Working Group and for the first time a report from the Sysadmin Team. All long term KDE contributors are welcome to join KDE e.V.
What is Linux-Vserver, you ask? It's simple. Basically, Linux-Vserver is an open-source system used to separate a single physical server into multiple virtual servers. In this tutorial, I'll show you how to install Linux-Vserver on Debian Testing (Etch), the easy way.
The Linux Desktop 'revolution' that many of us have been hoping and lobbying for may not come about the way we expected, but we are an adaptable crowd and this is the point of my article. Adaptability. Without a strong enough reason to change to Linux people aren't. Enter Mythtv.
There will be a special meeting conducted by Novell on the #openSUSE-project Freenode IRC channel this Thursday at 17:00 GMT, to discuss the Microsoft-Novell deal. I'd certainly be tuning in.
Document management systems do more than just store and retrieve files -- they also provide versioning, security, indexing, and metadata capabilities. DocMGR is a GPL-licensed Web-based document management system that supports LDAP directory service integration so that users on the network can authenticate against LDAP directly.
As most people know Microsoft has an anti-Linux program called "Get the Facts" featuring case studies arguing the Windows case. When one of those, wearing the title: London Stock Exchange chooses windows over Linux for reliability, arrived in my email last week, I was sufficiently intrigued by the relative reliability claim to read the thing.
When you cannot monitor your server for service availability, it is better to take help of automated monitor and restart utility. Last 4 days I was away from my server as I was enjoying my vacation. During this time due to load my lighttpd webserver died but it was restarted automatically within 2 minutes.
