This article describes how to prepare a CentOS 4.4 server for OpenVZ virtual machines. With OpenVZ you can create multiple Virtual Private Servers (VPS) on the same hardware, similar to Xen and the Linux Vserver project. OpenVZ is the open-source branch of Virtuozzo, a commercial virtualization solution used by many providers that offer virtual servers.
"A lot of people don't even know what a browser is," said Firefox co-creator Blake Ross. "They think that it's the first thing they use on the Internet. They say, 'What do you mean browser, is that Google? Is that Yahoo?' It's hard to get people to switch browsers if they don't understand the concept."
Conducted over the period following OOoCon 2006, where Michael Bemmer, the Engineering Director at Sun Microsystems and in charge of development of OpenOffice.org and StarOffice, presented the OpenOffice.org roadmap, this interview focuses on a particularly interesting element: a Personal Information Manager (PIM) that would work closely with OpenOffice.org.
Yesterday the Free Software Foundation (FSF) Compliance Lab unveiled its updated web site, @ http://www.fsf.org/licensing/. The site aims to help people find the information they need about licenses published by the FSF, such as the GNU General Public License (GPL), and to provide more information about the Lab's work.
South China Morning Post reported that use of Open Source was on the rise in China, which is very questionable, especially considering there is yet an Open Source related company to turn a profit. Supposedly, the Morning Post believes this rise will be spurred by the latest collaboration between Microsoft and Novell, which in and of itself is a laugh and shows how little educated the Morning Post is on Open Source issues.
This week's VMworld, held at the Los Angeles Convention Center attracted close to 100 exhibitors, about 7,000 attendees, and was the epicenter of a host of virtual announcements, from the synergistic to the seemingly incompatible, from OEMs and small ISVs alike.
The Free Software Foundation has pushed out the first stable release of gNewSense. This GNU/Linux distribution is built upon Ubuntu but is modified to only include Free Software. This distribution was started by two Irish FSF developers who wanted to combine the stability of Ubuntu with the addition of software freedom. Like Ubuntu, gNewSense 1.0 works as a LiveCD and can be installed using the Ubiquity graphical installer. The packages included in gNewSense 1.0 are not bleeding edge, with its inclusion of the GNOME 2.14 branch, X.Org 7.0, etc...
I've been using PC-BSD for approx. 10 Months so I've had enough time to see what life throws at me with it. My first install was 1.0 Release Canadate (RC) 1 and I currently run PC-BSD 1.2 (the current release) on my laptop and have a beta version of 1.3 installed on my desktop for testing. This will cover PC-BSD 1.2 and PC-BSD in general.
In order to save power, I often turn off my LCD monitor when I away from keyboard for long. Bare in mind, blank screen is not consider turn off the monitor, because it still uses backlight.
Some misconceptions refuse to die. And, worst of all, these misconceptions are harming our community and harming us, directly. I’m talking about a two-headed beast:
FURTHER TO our earlier report regarding Jim Allchin’s remarks which suggested Windows Vista may not need an antivirus system, the man himself has moved to clarify his comments.

apt-show-versions parses the dpkg status file and the APT lists for the installed and available package versions and distribution and shows upgrade options within the specific distribution of the selected package.
Today, I’ll show you how I automated my Web sites’ WordPress upgrades using assorted and powerful Linux software. You’ll also enjoy an exclusive look at the release process of one of my software products.
‘Completely free’ distributions spring up every once in a while, and they tend to get a substantial amount of coverage from the Linux press. The last one to be added to the FSF’s ever-growing list of free distributions is GNewSense, which is Ubuntu stripped of its proprietary software and given a (bad) makeover. As one might expect, it has received the usual spike of popularity: NewsForge, LWN, etc. What’s wrong with GNewSense?
I recently got hold of a very nice book on Ubuntu called Ubuntu Hacks co-authored by three authors - Kyle Rankin, Jonathan Oxer and Bill Childers. Put in a nutshell, this book is a collection of around 100 tips and tricks which the authors choose to call hacks, which explain how to accomplish various tasks in Ubuntu Linux.
There are those that feel it doesn't matter whether it's Sun's CDDL license or the Free Software Foundation's GNU General Public License. Either way, they say, GNU/Linux distros will be able to include Java and that's all that matters. But I'm not so sure the issue is as simple as that.
Corel Corporation announced that Mozilla Firefox will be bundled with Corel’s new consumer productivity package, Corel WordPerfect Office X3 – Home Edition 2007.
Most of the people nowadays don’t use WEP for wifi encryption, most of the wireless router support wpa tkip algorithm for encryption. I read a page which people can actually uses 10 minutes to crack WEP encrytion, which amazing and in the sense that you do not want to use WEP for your WLAN too.
While trawling through this week’s normal helter-skelter barrage of free software and open source news items, opinion pieces and analyzing ponderings a couple of pieces caught my eye. After a nice strong cup of coffee and pulling myself together a bit, I examined the articles a little more closely. I discovered that the authors, or originators, of each had, in fact, made a very common mistake while performing free and closed software comparisons that reminded me of the old adage regarding apples and bananas...
I've been programming since a young age, and Linux has always seemed like a natural progression, especially as my development environment is PHP/MySQL/Apache. A while ago, this was all done on a Red Hat installed system, using the “Plesk” web interface. Although I spent quite a few hours at the console sorting out problems, Plesk hid the real nitty gritty from me and I was often just following “How Tos” in order to get things fixed.
