Ubuntu Linux, Dapper Drake Flight 7 - How Linux is getting very close to mass adoption

Filed under
Reviews
Ubuntu

I decided to try out Linux again. A couple years ago I gave SUSE Linux a shot for the desktop, and it was not quite ready for primetime. Today I thought it would be fun to try Ubuntu and Kubuntu Linux (GNOME and KDE respectively). I could not remember which I liked better, so I gave them both a shot. My setup is a Fujitsu TabNote 4020d.

Coffee break: 10 minutes with Mandriva One 2006 Final

Filed under
Reviews

Available two months ago to Club Members, Mandriva One 2006 (Final) is now free for everyone. Since I'm usually told I am too negative about recent Mandriva releases (especially with the December's 2006.1 (0.3) beta), this time I wanted to be positively impressed by Mandriva.

It was not the case.

How Shellcodes Work

Filed under
HowTos

It's not an easy task to find a vulnerable service and find an exploit for it. It's also not easy to defend against users who might want to exploit your system, if you are a system administrator. However, writing an exploit by yourself, to convert a news line from bug tracker into a working lockpick, is much more difficult.

Linux System Administration in the New ERA

Filed under
Linux

The success of Mozilla's Firefox and Openoffice.org's productivity suite has breathed life into people's aspirations about Desktop Linux. As a result, the vast majority of articles published today focus there and ignore the strides made on the Linux server. Unlike the Linux server of the past, today's version supports rocket science and its gains far exceed those of the Desktop.

Pam lockout options

Filed under
HowTos

I’ve recently had the pleasure (ha ha) of configuring some machines to comply with government requirements, one of which is locking users out after a specified number of authentication failures. This is really easy on windows, but on Linux it’s not as flexible out of the box. Once again, PAM saves the day.

Filed under
OSS

For many people these days, Microsoft is to computing as Kleenex is to facial tissues -- practically the same thing. Microsoft probably has no problem with this, but sticking with just one supplier is not always a great idea. Increasingly, there are solid -- and practical -- reasons to minimize our commitment to Microsoft software.

Fresh From the Linux Kill

Filed under
HowTos

Imagine yourself dutifully wading through the documentation for whatever gnarly Linux application you're rassling into submission. You're running commands and editing configuration files; things are working and life is good. Until -- yes, you knew the good times weren't going to last -- until you hit the dreaded "send the process a SIGHUP" instruction.

BSD: The Other Free UNIX Family

Filed under
BSD

There are a lot of options in the Free UNIX market at the moment. Everyone's favorite buzzword is Linux, and Sun is in the process of releasing Solaris under a Free Software license. One family, however, receives less attention than it is due. Berkeley Software Distribution (BSD) has grown into almost a complete replacement for UNIX, with numerous enhancements. David Chisnall explains why the BSD family has found its way into a large number of systems and what these systems can do for you.
