Zenwalk 3 is an operating system based on Patrick Volkerding’s Slackware GNU/Linux distribution, version 10.2. The entire operating system fits on a single CD, and stays true to what the author calls the “Zen philosophy”.
Over the next two or three entries I'm going to provide summaries of activity represented on some of the mail-lists most relevant to the development and use of audio software for Linux (and other platforms). I'm subscribed to a variety of such lists, and it occurred to me that a summary of their traffic would be a good indicator of the breadth and depth of our corner of the larger Linux world. I'll proceed through my lists in loose alphabetical order, starting with news from the Ardour camp.
The results of the latest round of Debian Project general resolutions are in. The resolution to recall the project leader failed and the project has voted to release etch when it is ready without requiring a complete and final solution to the firmware problem first.
A few weeks ago I had written about installing the fglrx 8.28.8 display drivers on Fedora Core 6 Test 3. Due to some changes, the installation instructions for installing the drivers on Fedora Core 6 have changed once again.
Gentoo , is that hard to install? Is that hard to manage? Is that hard of a distro? Gentoo is probably one of the scariest Linux distribution ever for the new user. It is not that it is that different from all those other Linux distributions but the installation process is the one that makes all the difference.
There are many ways to support and contribute to the KDE project. For people and organisations who wish to contribute to KDE by providing financial support in an ongoing manner, the KDE e.V. now offers the new Supporting Members scheme. KDE e.V. is both excited and proud to announce Mark Shuttleworth, founder of Canonical, as our first Patron of KDE.
All too soon these whippersnappers will realize that the only way they are going to be able to use the tunes and movies they have purchased in digital form is to keep buying iPods and Blu-ray DVD players and music-capable cell phones. Open source offers help.
KDE just got 10 years old! In a random surfing session I came across screen shots of Slackware, which of course ships with unmodified sources, and the screen shots really appealed to me. I’ve never looked to any other distribution. So what is it that I really like KDE?
This is a detailed description about how to set up a Mandriva 2007 Free Edition based server that offers all services needed by ISPs and hosters (Apache web server (SSL-capable), Postfix mail server (with SMTP-AUTH and TLS), DNS server, FTP server, MySQL server, POP3/IMAP, Quota, Firewall, etc.).
I believe in using tools. And if the tools are easy to use and free, so much the better. That's why I'm a big proponent of using templates. Templates are one of the best ways to save time, effort, and be sure that your documents are consistent when they need to be.
When deciding which software tool to use for a particular task it is important to review what the software does, ensure that its functionality matches your requirements, understand what help and support is provided, and make an assessment of the total cost of ownership. Let's take a look at how Nmap weighs in.

Ever [since] I tried a Fedora build for programming purposes a few years back, I was interested in this alternate operating system, and the benefits it offered. Now that my new laptop has arrived, the time was right for a fresh operating system for my fresh laptop. Enter Ubuntu my new best friend.
Yesterday at 10:00 AM the president of the KDE e.V. Eva Brucherseifer welcomed the audience of the presentation track at the KDE anniversary event at the Technische Akademie Esslingen (TAE) in Ostfildern near Stuttgart, Germany. Keynote speakers were Matthias Ettrich, founder of the KDE project, as well as Klaus Knopper of Knoppix fame. During their presentations they looked back at KDE's successful past 10 years and they offered their thoughts about the future of KDE and Free Software.
Regardless of what system you use or which package manager comes with your distribution, compiling a program from the source code is one option that will work across all platforms. Don't be hesitant to compile software - this is one of Linux and BSD's strong points.
It has been six months since ATI Technologies had introduced Radeon X1000 support in their Linux fglrx display drivers. But how has the support evolved with their monthly driver releases? At Phoronix we have retested the last six display drivers with a Radeon X1k product to answer this question.
