The release of Ubuntu 6.06 (Dapper Drake), back in June, brought not only a new desktop system to the Linux world, but also a server system with long-term commercial support. It has one key advantage over similar offerings from Redhat and Novell; the flexibility of the Debian dpkg packaging system.
The Gnome development team yesterday released the latest version the popular open source desktop - version2.16. Besides a number of fixes and improvements, Gnome 2.16 is a big step forward as it begins to offer many of the more 3D effects that are becoming increasingly popular.
Live Linux CDs are popping up all over the place. Mainstream distributions like SimplyMEPIS let you try before you install, as does Ubuntu and Linspire. There are also specialized distributions like Knoppix and Dynebolic. One Gentoo Linux-based distribution, called Sectoo, might also warrant a "live" look.
To learn more about the recently reported migration of computers in 12,500 high schools in the southern Indian state of Kerela from Windows to GNU/Linux, prompted largely by the recent visit to India of free software guru Richard M. Stallman, DesktopLinux.com contacted Stallman for further details.
It's time to give the latest version of SimplyMEPIS a spin - this time, the version has jumped from 3.x to 6.0, along with a change of base from Debian to Ubuntu. So, has it made any difference?
Red Hat today announced its continuing commitment to superior security services with a new initiative, implemented by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), that enables members of the software industry to officially and publicly comment on vulnerabilities.
I’ve been talking about them, complaining about what you CAN’T do, about the troubles with 3D cards... Personally I’m getting a bit lost with all this. So, I’ve decided to compile all the information I could find out about those pesky 3D desktops.
The US Department of Energy (DOE) has chosen IBM to build a new supercomputer for its Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico. Roadrunner will run Red Hat's version 4.3 Linux operating system.
One default feature of the Bash shell is to record a history of all the commands entered by a user in a log file called .bash_history, found in the user's home directory. For many users, it is useful to retrieve the previously executed commands, usually to save the effort of re-typing them. So why might we want to limit or disable this Bash command history?
Apple Computers originally developed a Truetype font in 1980. Later in 1991 Microsoft introduced the same to Windows operating system. These fonts enhance your web browsing experience and some software such as Macromedia Flash player only works best with Truetype / FreeType fonts under Linux desktop.
The little program that could, dd, has been around for several decades. It can do a lot of stuff but today we’re going to use it to copy a cd or dvd.
While activist group Defective By Design is calling for an international day of action against digital rights management, the NZ government defends its DRM policy.
The fact that VMware's first ever product, VMware Workstation, was based on Linux has meant that the company has always been very Linux-friendly. In fact, many argue that VMware's re-invention of the virtualisation market -- it was started by IBM in the mid-1960s when the technology starred in Big Blue's 704 mainframe -- is a major factor in Linux' popularity right now. But for how much longer can this relationship last?
Darl McBride, president and chief executive officer of Lindon-based SCO, acknowledged during a Wednesday conference call that the ongoing IBM lawsuit has been costly in dollars, time and hampering the rollout of new technology. Litigation costs in the most recent quarter alone totaled $2.3 million, although that's lower than $3 million in the year-earlier quarter and $3.8 million in the previous quarter.
Save this script and make it executable. Leave it running overnight. Lather, rinse, repeat. Oh, nono, don’t do that — the script will take care of the lather, rinse and repeat for you.
Geotagging is the association of geographic location information with an object. A geotag comprises three pieces of information: a name and longitude and latitude values. Once files are geotagged, they can be indexed and searched based on the geographic information they contain. Here's how you can tag your photos, documents and other files so you can search for place-related information on your PC using Google Earth.
Mozilla has hired a former Microsoft security strategist to help lock down its open-source products against online attacks.
With GNOME 2.16.0 shipping today, the nightly LiveCD images of Ubuntu have been updated to this new stable version of GNOME. Curious to see what Ubuntu Edgy Eft looks like with GNOME 2.16.0? We have plenty of images to share today.
Enterprise Linux customers typically pick from just two options. Although HP’s decision to support Debian could widen the playing field, the choice really comes down to Novell and Red Hat. It’s worth comparing the two in terms of product offerings and overall style.
A Chinese company hopes to manufacture a low-cost PC that it will sell to schools and local governments starting in October. The PC will include a locally-designed Godson CPU running at 800MHz to 1GHz, with 256Mbytes of DDR DRAM, a 40-60Gbyte hard drive and will run on Linux.
