Wow! We've all been completely swamped in feedback since Saturday's beta release. I'm personally surprised how positive it is as a whole. We've gotten a ton of really well-founded gripes too.
An updated version of Linux XP was released on December 21 and since then I had been waiting for an English release. There was an English directory on the mirror, so I thought one would be forthcoming. I gave up. I downloaded the Russian version and was able to get it to display in English with a few mouse clicks. So don't let the fact it's a Russian distro throw you off. Test it out anyway... if you want a distro that is based on Fedora/Redhat, comes with a 2.6.10 kernel, Xorg 6.8.1, and gnome 2.12, yet looks remarkably like KDE meets Windows.
This morning a new worm for Linux appeared on the Internet. This is the second worm in the last couple of months. (The one before this one, Lupper, appeared on 7th November 2005). This shows how relatively rare Linux worms are in comparison to Windows worms.
Yesterday saw IBM cease the sale of the OS/2 Operating system. Come the 31st of December, standard support for the OS will end also. However, a significant number of companies and people continue to use it, and they are finding ways for OS/2 to live on.
In the computer world, when people talk about clustering, they are refering to technologies that allow multiple computers to work together to solve common computing problems.
Previously we showed how to add basic completion to commands, using facilities which were already provided by the bash completion routines. In this second part we'll demonstrate how to add completely new custom completion to commands.
The documentary film March of The Penguins has been branded a "moment of significance" by a US movie body. The American Film Institute (AFI) chose six events and trends from 2005 from the US movie and TV industries.
Sometimes you can craftily restore a damaged master boot record after an all night hack-a-thon. With proper care, restoration software, and carefully maintained backups it usually isn't necessary to read data raw off a partition.
But even with the best recovery systems in place accidents can still happen. When you've written over the MBR of your system after deleting it during a 4AM coding marathon more drastic measures than a backup restore are called for. Enter Foremost.
Spam is one of the biggest problems of the internet and just about everybody has written Bill Gates. I did not want to be one of those guys who blogs and never wrote about spam, one of the most loved subjects of bloggers. Here are some methods to avoid spam.
In a recent so-called Desktop Linux versus Windows XP shootout, writer George Ou declares that "Microsoft handily beat the open source platform." The basis for this judgment? "OS boot time and application load times" on two different PCs. Oh, dear. This isn't right at all.
DVD writers have become so common these days that there is hardly any difference between the price of a CD-writer drive and a DVD-writer drive. Below are a few tips for newbies on how to burn DVDs on a Debian box using the command line
A vulnerability has been reported in the Linux Kernel, which can be exploited by malicious, local users to cause a DoS (Denial of Service).
Where, oh where, did the past year go? It was a year that had us on the edge of our seats in enterprise Unix-land. It was a good year to be a pundit, and it was an even better year to be an open source or Linux vendor, as the latest wave of zeitgeist rolled in. Here's a brief overview of what developments of 2005 will have the most impact on enterprise Unix in 2006.
In this paper I will try to explain the philosophy behind the Security Enhanced Linux (SE Linux). I will however try to explain the concept with an example but to keep the length readable I will restrain myself to go into much of implementation details for e.g. commands and similar stuff.
One of the nicest facilities of the modern shell is the built in "completion" support. These facilities allow you to complete commands and their arguments easily. Read on for a brief introduction to adding your own command completions.
I had always wanted to try out Solaris OS ever since Sun released its code under an open licence and renamed it as Open Solaris. But even though open solaris had its own website, downloading a binary image was an entirely different matter and was not an easy proposition. So when a few brilliant Indians at the Bangalore India Engineering Center of Sun Microsystems released a live CD called Belenix based on Open Solaris, I decided to give it a spin.
After only seven monthly issues -- from June 2005 to December 2005 -- the only Romanian Linux magazine -- MyLINUX (MyL in short) announced it will not appear any more!
An interesting question comes to mind when you use as many open source forensic and security tools as I do — if I ever go to court over this case, will my tools be considered valid?
