nosrednaekim.wordpress: With the release of a (somewhat) stable KDE4 Beta4, I have decided to switch from KDE3.5.8 to KDE4. I decided to compile from source following the excellent instructions on the Techbase.
Caitlyn Martin: A while back the good folks behind Freespire, the free version of Linspire, sent me a CD with version 2.0 for me to review. I knew going in that Freespire was “free as in free beer." For those of us who are not free software purists Freespire does have one compelling feature.
nixcraft: You can use logsave command to save the output of a command in a logfile. General syntax is as follows: logsave /path/to/logfile command-name argument(s)
the distrogue: Buried deep in the Linux man pages is a command called dd. You know how short commands like cat, ps, grep, rm or mv are really powerful? dd owns all of them. It copies data between block files- image files or device files.
kmandla.wordpress: People converge on Ubuntu (and the forums) from many different directions. Some are artists, some are technically-minded, and some are both. Tomosaur is a coder and musician who is usually found in the programming venues but, as you can see, has many other facets to his personality.
debianadmin.com: Many system administrators may be in the habit of re-booting their systems to make partition changes visible to the kernel. With Linux, this is not usually necessary. The partprobe command, from the parted package, informs the kernel about changes to partitions.
ReviewLinux.Com: Mandriva 2008 Powerpack is a commercial Linux product built by Mandriva. They provide the Linux Community with a free version but today I will take a look at Powerpack. Mandriva 2008 Powerpack is easy to install and configure and I hope you enjoy this quick look at this excellent Linux OS.
zerias.blogspot: A couple months back several vendors initiated a Vista to Xp crossgrade. Basically, if a customer ordered a computer and it came with Vista installed, the customer could get an Xp license instead. Novell claimed several months back in a video ad that Desktop Linux users accounted for upwards of 30,000,000 different people.
itwire: Linux desktop users looking for good financial software to run natively can forget about Quicken and Quickbooks. One glance at Intuit's website should be enough to convince even devout users a port to Linux desktops is a long way off and a Linux version of Quicken is not even on the radar. So what are the alternatives?
DPotD: Debfoster exists to tell you which packages are installed on your machine merely as dependencies for other packages. It then gives you the option of removing the package and its dependencies. Debfoster is most useful to keep your system very lean.
nixcraft: If you have 4 GB or more RAM use the Linux kernel compiled for PAE capable machines. Your machine may not show up total 4GB ram. All you have to do is install PAE kernel package.
nuxified.org/blog: Some people say that there are too many GNU/Linux distributions, too many people just doing their own instead of joining an existing effort. Why would we want to do that when we already have a cathedral, the one we escaped from?
dag.wieers.com/blog: "Why is there no SLES alternative distribution ?". Given all the benefits a free Enterprise Linux brings to Red Hat, Novell must be eager to want to tap into this resource, right ?
dvd-guides.com: A new release of Redhat-sponsored Fedora is always in the headlines of the Linux world as it is one of those distributions that push Linux forward by introducing exciting new features. I have used Fedora 7 for about 4 months myself until I moved over to Arch Linux so in this review I will try to point out what has been improved other the older versions.
trolltech.com/blogs: My favorite OpenDocument Format implementation KOffice is based on Qt and version two will be released after Qt4.4 is out as 4.4 is going to bring a lot of improvements for it. I’m working through some of the features that we see in ODF which are pretty advanced nice little things.
blog.thedebianuser.org: Now it’s finally official: the Asus EeePC (for Easy to Learn, Work, and Play) will be available from December in Germany and Austria for a recommended end user price of €299,- including tax.
kmandla.wordpress: I’ve been spending a rather inordinate amount of time trying to get the ugly little laptop working with the corpse of Lowarch. I know, it’s a lost cause, but it’s not without some success.
ubuntu-assist.com: I’ve been playing around with fonts in Gutsy recently, so I thought I would document on this blog.
itbusinessedge.com/blogs: Hyperic isn’t the only open source company hoping to capitalize on Ubuntu’s push for a bigger piece of the OS market, it seems. Thursday, GroundWork Open Source released GroundWork Monitor Open Source for Ubuntu and other Debian-based operating systems.
sabayonlinux.org: Last night I committed Entropy/Equo 0.7.5. Why is it a milestone? Because it is starting to bring something that no other package managers have: It’s possible to create a compressed package that self-contains the choosen application and all its dependencies. Just unpack it and double click on the executables.
