I bought an Aptiva in 1997 at an IBM sale. Slightly more expensive than I would have gotten a clone PC for, it was nevertheless a good purchase at the time. Its processor was a Pentium 200-MMX and it came with 16MB of RAM, a 5GB hard disk, and one USB ports. Now, what version of Linux could possibly load into a Pentium 200-MMX machine with 32MB of RAM?
TorrentFlux is a robust PHP torrent client that supports many torrent features such as rss torrents, search and download from popular torrent sites, super seeding, and much more. This tutorial will walk you through the installation of Ubuntu 5.10 and TorrentFlux 2.1 Final.
The final release of Vim 7 is just around the corner, and it brings a number of new features to the venerable editor, including spell checking, omni completion for several programming and markup languages, tab pages, undo branches, and several other features that are worth upgrading for. Let's take a look at what's new in 7.0.
Oracle Database 10g Express Edition (Oracle Database XE) is an entry-level, small-footprint database based on the Oracle Database 10g Release 2 code base that’s free to develop, deploy, and distribute; fast to download; and simple to administer.
Content management systems (CMSs) are everywhere, and whether you notice or not, most every site is powered by one. But there is one PHP script that has begun to lead the CMS pack in features, customizability and power; in fact, FreeSoftwareMagazine.com runs on it, it’s called Drupal.
In our last article, we discussed the registering process for the file system and then mounting it accordingly. In this article, however, we’ll discuss the two widely used structures (structures as in C) in implementation of a file system. And then we will delve on the operations on super block structure.
Linux Networx, The Linux Supercomputing Company, today announced that Computer Sciences Corporation (CSC) has ordered a Custom Supersystem for the NASA Center for Computational Sciences (NCCS) at the Goddard Space Flight Center.
Litrix 6.0 was released a few days ago and as a big gentoo fan, I was very anxious to test this livecd and install. Tuxmachines tested version 3.0 and figured 6.0 would probably be the cat's meow! Despite many pros, I'm afraid the cons overtook our experiences with Litrix this time. Here is our report.
Its been a long time ago that Soulkeeper has been released. Now with the Special Edition Upgrade we can enjoy this great MOD under Linux.
As more companies and government agencies use open-source software, a trend many expect will continue, traditional software companies face the wrenching decision of how much they should move toward open source, if at all.
After booting the Live CD, the desktop contains some shortcuts - one of which is to start the installation. When launching the installation, the first screen is a warning about Dapper being beta. It specifically notes that the installation may involve resizing partitions - something you don’t really want to do with beta software! Since I’ve nothing on these disks to lose.
The Gentoo Foundation's Gentoo 2006.0 is a popular Linux distribution that attempts-and, most of the time, succeeds-in delivering a stable, manageable system while preserving fairly fine-grained configurability for administrators. Gentoo is great for testing and, with care, can serve effectively in production settings as well. Gentoo is a Linux distribution that succeeds in striking a balance between fine-grained configurability and ongoing manageability.
While Linux and open-source software got a resounding endorsement from a panel of vendors and investors during a session at the Linux on Wall Street conference here on April 24 titled "The Next Opportunities and Challenges for Linux and Open Source on Wall Street," they also pointed to some of the challenges facing open source.
The concept's great: what would it be like to have a pocket-size device that I could plug in to just about any Macintosh and by simply rebooting the computer be running a full-blown Linux installation? I had a spare Apple iPod, a first-generation 5GB device and I was assured by the folks at Yellow Dog that I could squeeze YDL into as small as 1GB. So, one afternoon I decided to take the plunge.
The traditional way of sharing a collection of audio files across a local network is by sharing the directory that contains them, so that everybody can access these files. This works well, but I guess it’s time to move on to the next level of music sharing through the Digital Audio Access Protocol (DAAP).

WiFi on Linux got a major boost today, as Devicescape Software donated technology to allow WiFi to run natively for the first time.
I've installed Breezy quite a few times already, and I know that by default it chooses GRUB as its boot manager. So I was really surprised when I found that LILO, rather than GRUB, wound up on my friend's hard disk. Was I hallucinating? Had I been kidnapped by aliens, and they were now controlling my brain with radio waves? Perhaps, but even after I put on my tinfoil hat, LILO was still there.
