Woohoo, Suse 10.1 Beta 1 is here, one of the milestones in the development of a new release. It came a bit later than expected, at least for me. I had picked out a coupla fast mirrors before hand and began my download before announcements were made. As soon as OSNews and Distrowatch reported its release, the mirrors slowed to a crawl. It took the better part of the 20th to download SUSE 10.1 beta1. All this to say, SUSE, even in beta, has got to be one of the most popular distros available. And with good reason. I've been following the development of SUSE since the formation of OpenSuse and I have acquired quite a liking to its polish and completeness, its great tools and little extras, and its fast performance and stability. As has become the norm here at Tuxmachines, we installed the new beta to look around and see what we see. This is our report.
Today NVIDIA will be announcing their GeForce 7300 GS product. Aimed strictly at the mainstream, their latest will compete directly against ATI's X1300 product line. The GeForce 7300 GS will feature 4 pixel pipes and 3 vertex shaders. The core will be clocked at 550MHz, but the memory clock will vary depending on what the add-in card partner decides on.
In the first part of this text, we introduced the principal concepts of Debian package building. We're now ready to build an example package of a simple command line program.
"Suffice to say, Corel remains committed to working alongside OASIS and other technology vendors to ensure the continued evolution of the ODF standard and the adoption of open standards industry-wide."
Still, at that time, Wood was unwilling to commit to ODF support in WordPerfect.
The software industry is divided over the pros and cons of open-source versus proprietory "closed-source". Closed-source advocates say that it offers more secure platforms, cleaner applications and products. It also offers higher financial incentives to the charmed circle of developers with access to the code.
This article is a practical step-by-step guide for securing Linux production systems. It discusses basic Linux Security requirements for systems that need to pass various audits in an enterprise environment.
Can an open source .org find happiness and success in teaming up with a multivendor consortium? It's a business model that seems to work for Safehaus, an organization now collaborating with OATH (Initiative for Open AuTHentication) on technologies for authenticating cell phone subscribers, among other things.
The day of broad adaptation of open source solutions in educational environments is dawning. It's time more school leaders, teachers, and other educational stakeholders take notice and make plans to move at least some (but perhaps not all) of their workstations into the Linux / Open Source fold.
VLOS 1.2.1 was released yesterday with lots of changes and upgrades. Most notable for me was the new Anaconda version updated to FC5 Test1. In addition, other versions include GCC 4.0.1, glibc 2.3.5, GNOME 2.12.1. Their announcement claimed version 7.0 of Xorg, but I got 6.8.2. Anyway, with all these great sounding updates, how can we go wrong? We installed VLOS today and this is our report.
A serious vulnerability has been found in the popular KDE open-source software bundle. The flaw, deemed "critical" by the research outfit the French Security Incident Response Team, could allow a remote attacker to gain control over vulnerable systems.
So, with all that Linux brings to the plate, how is Ubuntu Linux different? Ubuntu Linux is different from other versions of Linux because of its user-friendliness, as its slogan suggests. Ubuntu's interface is very simple and clean and feels familiar for users of Windows or Mac.
As soon as I looked through Salem Labs' site, I got in touch with Fred Gleason, Director of Broadcast Software Development for Salem Radio Labs, and told him I'd like to do a Q&A with him. He got back (and forth) almost immediately. Here's a selection from the dialog:
