Debian is one of my favorite distros; but in terms of look, I hate it. At each release, I am hoping for visual improvements but each time I get disappointed. Etch is no different, the artworks are unpolished, the icon set (Rodent on the Xfce desktop) is prehistoric and in general, the desktop has a poor aesthetic appearance.
If you own a website, chances are that you need to use a database to run many site operations. For the most part, people use MySQL.
Most hosts offer a solution to manage your database. A common choice for this is phpMyAdmin. But, for many, phpMyAdmin can be slow or feel bloated on slower connections.
gcc (GNU C Compiler) is actually a collection of frontend tools that does compilation, assembly, and linking. The goal is to produce a ready-to-run executable in a format acceptable to the OS. For Linux, this is ELF (Executable and Linking Format) on x86 (32-bit and 64-bit). But do you know what some of the gcc parameters can do for you?
Tagging has taken off in the Web 2.0 world as a way to organize and find items of interest. And for the most part they've existed only in the browser view of the Web.
After an interesting development cycle, SimplyMepis 6.5 was delivered to the anxiously awaiting community yesterday. Having started out as an update to the 6.0 release, it soon grew to encompass several highly desired features.
In my debut article on PolishLinux.org I’d like to introduce you to one of my favorite window managers — IceWM. This unusually lightweight window manager has been created in C++ by Marko Maček. The first version was released on 26 Dec. 1999. The latest stable one (IceWM v.1.2.30) appeared on 24 Dec. 2006
Fullerscreen is an extension that gives Web pages in Firefox the full run of your monitor. If you spend much time using Web-based applications like Gmail, Google Notebook, or Backpack, Fullerscreen is a must-have addition to Firefox.
If you’re a long-time NetWare user, you might think you know everything Novell-ish. However, the company looks a lot different these days than it used to, now that it is focused on Linux and is claiming customers who never used NetWare. So for those who remember NetWare fondly -- as well as those who wouldn’t know NetWare from OS/2 -- here are nine things we bet you don't know about Novell.
You can use Kerberos to verify the identities of users and principals over networks.
Linux for Clinics has released a Alpha testing release. Known issues... 1. Ubiquity icon is from Ubuntu 2. Initial boot screen on Livecd is still Ubuntu 3. Forgot to remove Gnome-Games 4. Forgot to install the medical dictionary for openoffice.org 5. No LFC upgrade path...Have not implemented our repository yet.
The Aims of the Linux For Clinics Project
A GPL provision to prevent Novell/Microsoft-type agreements may not pacify the open-source community
The latest draft of the GNU General Public Licence (GPL) has caused more ructions in the Linux community.
As I promised in my previous post I’ll report here on my experiences with the freshly installed Xubuntu Feisty Fawn. Though I’ll note the changes mentioned on other reviews, but I’ll also try to add changes that aren’t that apparent and that you haven’t read about elsewhere.
It's been quite a while since I've published a review of the workstation platforms from AMD and Intel, but, with all the changes in both platforms recently, it's high time. This brings us to this review of the Intel Xeon 5300 series processors and the AMD Opteron 2200 series processors.
For a few months I have been spending a lot of time using a Mac running OS/X for 40 hours a week. Recently a discussion started at a client site as to whether Macs or PCs should be used for future desktop machines.
A while back I posted about Rhythmbox including support for Open Content services such Jamendo and Magnatune. For a while now Rhythmbox has included support for last.fm and I have used it to update my account there. Well, today I went to fire up my music in Rhythmbox, clicked the last.fm entry and started listening to my Neighbour’s music.
My daily Slashdot newsletter told me all I needed to know in one simple headline: Google Desktop For Mac Released.
Honestly, I didn't want to click the link. I knew what was going to happen. I've been there...I've seen me do it. 4:30AM is way too early to go from first-cup-of-coffee to pissed-off in 3.7 seconds. I couldn't help myself. I clicked the link.
Welcome to this tutorial series on porting a PyGTK game to the OLPC’s Sugar environment. While we will be concentrating on a game called Block Party, the lessons taught here can be used as a guide to create or port any number of applications. Games are just more fun to learn with.
The Linux-based Dolphin file manager is now scheduled for official inclusion in KDE 4, the next major release of the KDE desktop environment. Dolphin includes several unique usability enhancements that aren't available in Konqueror, KDE's current file manager.
Linux Fund, an organization founded to fund open source projects through financing from affinity credit cards, is losing its affinity card provider. Linux Fund cardholders received official notice from the Bank of America recently that the program is being discontinued.
DEVELOPERS OF OpenBSD took code from their brethren at Linux, violating the code's licence, the GPL. To the horror of the Linux folk, the OpenBSD licence allows proprietary use.
The Linux coders went to great pains to reverse engineer Broadcom's wireless chipset. The company's hardware is found in many wireless devices, but Broadcom shuns open source.
