Here are some basic commands to get you started in the wonderful world of Linux and other UNIX variants. All of these commands should work from your command prompt (regardless which shell you’re using).
Metropolitan, together with the Shuttleworth Foundation, Inkululeko Technologies and the KZN Department of Education, has installed an Open Source computer centre, known as a tuXlab, at the ZamaZulu Secondary School in Pietermaritzburg.
Super Grub Disk (SGD) is a specialty rescue CD for emergency repairs on boot sectors. Despite its name, SGD not only manipulates the Grand Unified Bootloader (GRUB), but also works with the content of other master boot records as well.
You may not know what Linux is, but there's a good chance you use it every day. It's not a household cleaner or a prescription drug, but a form of software that is spreading beyond corporate computer networks into electronic devices such as personal digital assistants, TiVo boxes, navigation systems and home routers. Before long, it could be in your cell phone, too.
We are proud to announce that Slackware Linux version 11.0 has been finally released; it took some time but is well worth the wait. This Slackware version is by far the most cutting edge ever released, it includes KDE version 3.5.4, XFCE 188.8.131.52, glibc-2.3.6, gcc-3.4.6, and X11R6.9.0 from X.Org.
In a bid to increase the number of Linux users in the CNMI, Northern Marianas College faculty member David Rumptz will be giving away at least 20 desktop computers to interested Linux users.
I determined to get the ATI drivers working. The big difference here is that this time I'm using the 32bit Mandriva rather than 64bit. Here's a quick HOWTO on getting this stuff up and running.
Also: Feeding the frenzy of misinterpretation
PCLinuxOS Magazine Lite...for those bandwidth challenged users...
Today the final release of World of Padman, the famous cartoon style quake3 mod has been released. This release in first place bundles all the single files and add-ons, which became available in the past.
While fully built retail machines are not our main focus at Phoronix, after learning of a new contender in the Linux HTPC arena we decided to further investigate LIX Systems. Today we are looking at a moderately priced Home Theater PC that has everything pre-configured to hopefully begin a smooth Linux media experience.
This is the second part of the article about top ten Windows annoyances which made me switch from XP to GNU/Linux and stick with it. I hope my thoughts will be informative and somewhat useful to all of you wondering whether to give up MS Windows.
Jereme Hancock says the reason he created a Christian version of Linux, called Ubuntu Christian Edition, was simply to "bring Linux to Christian believers." Ubuntu CE, which comes with net filtering and Bible study software, is designed to fit in with Hancock's mission to provide a "family-friendly place on the Web," Hancock says.
As well as palm muting, KGuitar has a number of great features. It's able to import Guitar Pro files, up to version 4; it has a visual fretboard, so you can see how a chord would look on the guitar neck; a chord analyser (like Guitar Pro's) that gives you a choice of fingerings based on a chord name, or provides you with chord names for a chord you input; and, a feature that seems to be unique to KGuitar: the ability to tap the rhythm of a bar using the mouse or keyboard.
If you didn't make it to the Ohio Linuxfest this past weekend you missed a great time. With speakers like John "Maddog" Hall, Jeff Waugh and Chris DiBona not to mention vendors like Novell, IBM, RedHat, and Sun, there was a something for everyone at Ohio Linuxfest this year.
Not being able to set my mind to doing anything useful, I played a little with rgba windows. For a future version of Xfce that can depend on cairo-based versions of Gtk, it should be possible to only make the panel background transparent, while keeping text and icons fully opaque.
Like I said last Friday, UHU-Linux 2.0 was released as the first version (the fourth in its history, after 1.0, 1.1 and 1.2) to support the English language as an extra to Hungarian. Some people liked even Test 2 — let's see now what we got in the final release.
With its Corporate Server 4, Mandriva is challenging the Linux data center operating systems from Red Hat and Novell by offering broader support for virtualization technologies. It's a solid-sounding plan, but eWEEK Labs' tests of CS 4 show that it's longer on ambition than execution.

I'm breaking with tradition at Tectonic. We usually review Ubuntu, the Gnome desktop version from the Canonical/Ubuntu team that brought us winning operating systems like Warty Warthog, Hoary Hedgehog, and Breezy Badger. And, according to my last review, a loser like Dapper Drake. This time I'm reviewing Kubuntu Edgy Eft, the KDE version of the latest Ubuntu release.
Open source software developers, joined by Intel and IBM technical staff, exchange knowledge and plan ODF supporting projects; OpenDocument Developer Kit proposed.
