After a quick look at: man 8 consolehelper, man 8 userhelper, man 8 pam, and man 8 pam_console, and at the way other applications use PAM, I made my own way to add a "Root File Manager" icon in a distro that only has kdesu (which I will not use).
Organizing your favorite Web sites with bookmarks on Firefox can be tedious, especially when you want to keep your bookmarks synchronized across several computers at the same time. That's why I started using del.icio.us, the social bookmarking service now owned by Yahoo! Yahoo! recently released a del.icio.us bookmarks extension for Firefox that fully integrates del.icio.us with Firefox bookmarks.
Postfix is a widely used mail transport agent (MTA) used on many popular Unix/Linux systems. Nowadays, networks are overwhelmed by SPAM mail, fortunately, there is a way to filter them with software such as spamassassin.
While digital video editing today is an affordable, popular activity for both the computer hobbyist and amateur cinematographer, many people seem to think that video creation under Linux is either impossible or too difficult for the average computer user. Not so! From video capture to editing to DVD authoring and encoding, you can create high-quality videos easily with free, open source software.

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and Boston, Massachusetts are half a world apart in distance, but side by side in their commitment to adopt ODF. Sad to say, however, I am hearing from Malaysia that those who are working to see ODF adopted as a Malaysian National Standard are being confronted with the same tactics there that were so pervasive here a year ago, including the dissemination of a great deal of misinformation. I will write today on the happy state of ODF adoption in the Commonwealth.
ENTHUSIASTS REJOICE. The world's best underdog handheld is back is and it's better than ever. The people who brought us the GP32 handheld have recently released its successor, the GP2X and while it's certainly not everyone's cup of tea it does appear to have strong geek appeal.
Ubuntu Multimedia Center is a complete Linux-based operating system, freely available with community and professional support.It is also a live cd that is ubuntu derived and also free. This system was inspired by the fact that ubuntu didn’t have much of a multimedia center.Because users would have to manually download the codecs for playing mp3’s and what not.The main objective of this project is multimedia related programs available to users as easy as possible.
for the last year or so there have been two sets of thoughts squirming in the back of my mind with regards to the name "kde" and how we're going to communicate what that means in a post-4.0 world.
This is a COPY&PASTE howto creating a firewall/(mail)gateway for a small network (say 10 to 15 users or so on a PIII 450MHz, 512 MB ram and two identical network interface cards, broadband connection, fully featured, for a bussines environment.
Today's Internet no longer functions simply by responding to requests for HTML-coded Web pages. Discover an industrial-grade solution to this age-old problem -- namely, session state. This article demonstrates how Apache Geronimo maintains the state of thousands of simultaneous connections so that IT managers can breathe easier.
SC06, "the premier international conference on high performance computing, networking and storage," was held last week in Tampa, Florida. I took my video camera with me so that I could give you a little feeling of what the show was like, and even grabbed a couple of shots of the "by invitation only" Beowulf Users Group party that was held at a bar a few blocks away from the Tampa Convention Center.
Red Hat and its JBoss division came out swinging against the recent assault by Microsoft and Oracle on Red Hat's open-source middleware and operating system technology base.
I have recently been reading a book called Ubuntu Hacks by Jonathan Oxer, Kyle Rankin & Bill Childers, published by O'Reilly and Associates. I didn't expect to become a Grand Ubuntu Master by reading a single book, but I was hoping to pick up a few tips and tricks. If you want to really get to know Ubuntu, then you should grab a copy of this book and follow the bouncing dot.
Webilder is a handy little program that allows you to download photos from flickr and import photos from webshots to display as backgrounds on your Linux desktop.
A week or so ago I went along to the Ubuntu Developer Summit at Google HQ. This sort of conversation makes me very cynical about the relevance of the OSDL and LSB. It was a shame that Mark Shuttleworth didn’t show up - his blog entry is the only reason I went along.
In this article I describe how to install and setup the Cacti in a ISPConfig Server. There aren't many differences from installing in other ISP Managers or standalone Apache installations. I tried many others solutions, but Cacti is very simple and fast to implement.
For some, their Web browser of choice is just as emotionally charged as their choice in operating systems. For the rest of us, there are several quality Web browsers to choose from, and Firefox 2 certainly holds its own.
Want to run Linux on the PlayStation 3 but can't be bothered with the hassle of installing it? Then head over to online auction site eBay where one of Sony's next-generation consoles is on offer pre-loaded with Fedora Core 5 Linux.
Ubuntu will run fine after the installation. Windows XP will run too but not for long. And the useful Dell Utility Partition is gone (because the MBR has changed). You think you can fix it by FIXMBR and get the Windows NT Bootloader back. Great. You just mess up your harddisk further.
