Didn’t you ever drive behind one of those? One of those vehicles on four wheels that are legally considered cars, whose proud owner has a bumper sticker with the line: “Smile. But mine is paid”.
The release of the free, community-based CentOS 5 Enterprise Linux so soon after the RHEL 5 release is hardly a surprise; the same thing happened with RHEL 4 two years ago. Nor does Red Hat consider CentOS a competitor, but rather a distribution that fills a need. The company also said CentOS will help it grow its business.
In the April 2/9, 2007, issue, I gave Red Hat's Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and its brand-new Xen virtualization features a bit of a hard time with regard to the limitations of its management tools.
Tom Chastain, a legend in the Indianapolis Racing Realm and the owner of Chastain Motorsports has announced his team's entrance in this year's Indy 500. And if we've got anything to do with it...as long as I have one struggling breathe left inside of me, that monster of a race car will have Linux splashed all over it when the flag drops.
There are a few distros I am always keeping my eye on a little more than others. Most of the time I do this by joining the forums, getting on the mailing lists and signing up for all their newsletters and such. One of these is PCLinuxOS, which I review last fall with the release of Big Daddy (still love that name).
One of the most annoying things about Linux is mime types for files. In KDE, when you right-click a file, and then select Open With, a little fly-out menu appears. You will see a couple of options in this menu. If none of them are the right one, you can click on Other.
Do you know Page Info?
WinaXe Plus X-Server for Windows allows both Windows and Linux to be run on the same desktop at the same time. Users can access and run their remote applications from the Windows desktop and switch between operating systems as if switching between two Windows applications.
Open KDE or Gnome on Windows!
When you try to login using ssh some users might find asking for ssh password is slow here is the solution how to fix this problem.
Edit the /etc/ssh/ssh_config file using the following command
sudo vi /etc/ssh/ssh_config
Commentout the following lines
save the file and exit
I have too used to alarm clock, to wake me up every early morning. I set my alarm on my cellphone every night before I going to sleep. But recently, a simple stupid idea of creating an alarm clock in Linux comes to my mind.
Although Microsoft may claim otherwise, Vista, from both from a technical and business point of view, is proving to be a failure. Why not turn it over to people who have shown time after time that they can deliver the goods?
Let's look at the facts, shall we?
We've heard a lot about the OLPC (One Laptop Per Child) project, which aims to provide a $100 laptop for developing nations, and we've heard a bit about its Sugar interface and other technical abilities, but recently we spent the time with QEMU and a test build of the OLPC XO operating system (Fedora based) to see how it really shapes up.
There has been a lot of things going on in the Linux world these past few weeks, and so I thought I would throw it into a single article that sums it all up.
Today, I’m going to introduce the concept of mount points. Mount points are, in essence, folders in which external filesystems are mounted (their contents are dropped into that folder).
For many years, Windows has enjoyed a number of free software tools for making backup copies of DVDs. The most popular among these offerings is DVD Shrink.
Now it's possible to get the same backup abilities plus the ability to rip DVD titles to XVID, MPEG4 or Matroska x264 AVI files under Linux using K9Copy.
As you may have heard, Ubuntu 7.04, aka "Feisty Fawn", won't be out on schedule. The release candidate, originally scheduled for Thursday, has been delayed due to bugs with PATA handling. In the meantime, users can upgrade from version 6.10 "Edgy Eft" by editing /etc/apt/sources.list, replacing all instances of "edgy" with "feisty", and doing an upgrade with Synaptic or "update-manager -c".
If you divided today’s software sector into a detailed Venn diagram, you would end up with a very complex pattern of overlapping shapes and colors. To my mind—and I think to that of most IT managers—these overlaps are welcome news. Where two or more technologies or camps intersect, it means that they are communicating, working together and interoperating.
If you're like me, you loved the "Choose Your Own Adventure" books as a kid. It can be exciting to help shape something you'd otherwise be passively enjoying. That practice is slowly working its way into the film world. The future of filmmaking may give you, the audience, much more say in what kinds of movies get made.
For much of its history, Debian has been the major noncommercial, philosophically free distribution. Now, as Debian developers and users have deserted the distro for Ubuntu, does Debian have a purpose any more?
