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. But a favourable moon constellation at the start of the lunar new year, combined with the ongoing Ubuntu Asia Business Tour meant that, last week, Mark Shuttleworth and his small team of Canonical business people arrived in Taipei for a brief, 3-day visit.
Here are the steps you should follow if you want to upgrade one Fedora Core release (for example Fedora Core 3 to Fedora Core 4).
This tutorial shows you how to configure BIND9 DNS server to serve an internal network and a external network at the same time with different set of information. To accomplish that goal, a new feature of BIND9 called view is used.
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.
If you have, a password protected grub boot loader and you forgot both root and grub password then you can recover grub-boot loader password using following method/Procedure:
Dissatisfied with Microsoft Exchange Server, Steve Francis of American Steel has found what he believes to be a better alternative; one that runs native to Linux and yet offers a full-featured, transparent solution for users accustomed to using Microsoft Outlook to process their e-mail.
Bad statistical reports are commonly used to manipulate people, most notably, in politics, but it can happen in a wide variety of consumer venues as well. Don't take any report from anyone at face value if you're going to depend on the results. Look underneath and behind the results in every case, and make sure you aren't being played.
THE Unix operating system (OS) is among the "soft" components in the computer that has a colourful history journey. Although its story started as early as the 1960s, it was only in the 80s that it started to serve as the OS for the real digital world. At the early stages, AT&T developed the Unix System III as a commercial version and sold the product directly, with the first version being launched in 1982.
This would be the most phenomenal turnabout in the history of desktop computing. There's just one fly in the ointment.
Forget the freedom that open-source software affords, Microsoft Corp is unashamedly fixed on the commercialization kick-backs of the technology, said a Microsoft executive at the recent Open Source Business Conference in San Francisco.
Ubuntu, Mark Shuttleworth's brainchild, has overcome another feat this morning with the advent of Ubuntu v6.04 (Dapper Drake) Flight 4. Dapper Drake Flight 4 is the fourth milestone release in a series of development builds with the release candidate coming out April of 2006. In addition to a host of new extras, the focus of our attention today is on its Xgl and Compiz capabilities.
Beta 4 finally made onto servers yesterday, and onto my machine today. It took some doing, I admit, but I have it installed. I hate to be the bearer of bad tidings, and rather than make you wait til the end, I'll state up-front that there is no xgl included. Although rumor had it that was one of the reasons for the delay, the rpm packages needed are not included on the 5 cd set. They are still available from the factory tree repository, but don't expect any fancy screenshots for this "as installed" report.
Well, maybe not that bad. Actually, not "bad" at all: I have no real complaints about this book, but I didn't like it and can't imagine handing it to anyone with a hearty "Here, read this, you'll love it".
