Once again, it is the time of the month when new ATI display drivers are presented and it's now the task of Phoronix to evaluate this latest package. Over the past several months, we have seen a horde of improvements. Today with the release of the 8.29.6 fglrx drivers there have not been many changes that affect the end-user, but still there are some items worth mentioning.
IT managers face a problem determining what products and policies are best to properly secure their network. The problem with many security products is that it is hard to validate their claims. Penetration testing is a process for testing the security of networks by imitating an attacker. Conducting a successful penetration test involves a great deal of knowledge and a wide variety of software, including some of the following open source tools.
Anyone could have guessed that my undergrad thesis work is centered on Open Source; more accurately, we deal with devising strategies for Linux and Open Source adoption and penetration growth in the SMB sector of Guayaquil, Ecuador. Most of the conclusions are not Earth-shattering revelations, but things we already know. But there’s one particular thing you and me know for certain… yet we’re doing practically nothing about it!
What if the first OS you’ve ever used wasn’t MS Dos or Win95 but some kind of Unix-based free system like BSD or Linux? This is a text about a guy who has always used Linux and learned working with it when he was a young man when he had to use it at work. Imagine Linux is the standard OS and Microsoft is a small company offering so called MS Windows XP.
Popular open source content management system (CMS) Mambo today released version 4.6. This is the first major release in almost two years. So, what's new in version 4.6?

Have you ever needed to capture a screen shot of something in Linux and 72dpi was not high enough resolution. I recently found myself in this situation trying to capture some images of the great screen savers that come with most Linux distributions. The way you do this is easier than it first appears.
For most people, document management systems are overkill for keeping track of their documents. Usually, you don't need software that allows you to define elaborate document workflows or detailed version tracking. What you might need is a simple system that you can use to access and edit your documents on multiple machines, and then sync them with a file repository on a remote server. Simple Groupware allows you to do just that, and it has a couple more clever tricks as well.
This article shows how to install and run OSSEC HIDS, an Open Source Host-based Intrusion Detection System. It performs log analysis, integrity checking, rootkit detection, time-based alerting and active response. It helps you detect attacks, software misuse, policy violations and other forms of inappropriate activities.
The NSW state government yesterday went to market for its desktop, notebook and small server needs for at least the next three years, designating the ability to purchase Linux-based systems as "highly desirable".
Linux creator Linus Torvalds today signalled his enjoyment of the annual "Talk Like a Pirate Day" festivities, using the nautical lexicon to launch an update to the kernel at the heart of his open source operating system.
Perhaps I am missing something here, but why in the world is anyone worried about whether or not Xgl is outdoing the efforts of Microsoft's Vista? Seriously, we already know that Vista has problems of its own, and this is not even counting the fact that Xgl outperforms Vista's Aero hands down without the need for extra video card upgrades (without some tweaking, that is).
Linus Torvalds announced the release of the 2.6.18 Linux kernel, following the previous stable kernel release by three months. He exclaimed, "she's good to go, hoist anchor!", the second year in a row that a kernel release has coincided with 'Talk Like A Pirate Day.'
Aye, ’tis plain sailin’ fer 2007 an’ no mistake. Cap’n ‘Fearsome’ Barth an’ his horde o’ hard-drinkin’, wench-baitin’ below decks swabbers ‘ave removed the last o’ th’ mice, rats, termites &c from their stations chewing at the timbers o’ th’ good ship Mandriva, an’ we be ready to send ‘er out to the cruel ocean waves right soon like. Arrrrr.
Often the pivotal factor in achieving development timetables comes down to one's efficiency in finding and fixing bugs. Debugging inside the Linux kernel can be quite challenging. No matter how you approach it, kernel debugging will always be complex. This chapter examines some of the complexities and presents ideas and methods to improve your debugging skills inside the kernel and device drivers.
Free and open source software is fast taking on licenced software giants worldover, and in India too, it is catching the fancy of IT industry.
IDC, a well-known analyst firm has just released a study on the topic of open source, concluding that open source represents "the most significant all-encompassing and long-term trend that the software industry has seen since the early 1980s."
Is Linux a good choice for your old PC? In this article I’m going to examine the main issues connected with using GNU/Linux on some very old hardware. I will also cover choosing a distro, a desktop and the key applications for such a configuration.
I've finally installed Kubuntu in my Dell Notebook (a Inspiron E1705). It's just lovely. Kubuntu really "gets it"! It looks and performs great and its really easy to use.
