In one fell swoop, Oracle has drawn a square around the most active and interesting parts of the open source movement--the databases and tools. These are the platforms for applications. Applications are just skins on the database--if you own the database (Oracle) or access to the data (Net Apps) you are in the sweet spot.
IBM has published the following new technical articles, tutorials, and downloads on its DeveloperWorks website. They cover a range of interesting (though not necessarily embedded) technical topics, primarily related to Linux and open source system development.
The ifconfig command line utility is used to get information about a Linux network interface configuration and to make changes to it. The ifconfig utility can be used either to simply get information about network interface configuration or to change configuration, depending on what options are used with the ifconfig command.
Dave Miller, the lead programmer for Linux on Sun Microsystems' Sparc processors, said on his blog Friday he has fired up the open-source operating system on Sun's new UltraSparc T1 "Niagara"-based server. The move is an early milestone in Sun's effort.
Wolvix 1.0.4 Media Edition has reached the beta2 stage as announced on February 13. We took the beta for a test drive and had some mixed results. Tuxmachines still loves Wolvix, but was glad this is just a beta. There is still time to fix the glitches we encountered while testing. Overall, it's still a great little system and this "media edition" is a wonderful idea, but some of the apps need some work.
Mandriva has said that its EDGE-IT subsidiary has won a seat in the NEPOMUK Social Semantic Desktop project, funded under the European Union's Sixth Framework Programme. The total project budget is €17 million, of which €1.8 million are reserved to EDGE-IT. Funding from the EU represents 50% of the budget.
Novell was a sponsor of OSBC (Open Source Business Conference) again this year. I've gone to all three of the annual San Francisco events, and they provide a great snapshot into the state of the open source ecosystem.
Ever wonder how Linux automatically mount all or many of your partitions at boot time ? It does so by reading the parameters from the /etc/fstab file.
The power of open source to re-shape the software market was demonstrated with some force this week. Unfortunately, also on display this week in large doses was the ongoing clash of agendas between Linus Torvalds and Richard Stallman.
I administer servers and networking equipment in a small to mid-size heterogeneous (but 99.44% *nix) environment. I've worked on projects ranging from NIS-to-LDAP migration for authentication, to the deployment of a 164-CPU Beowulf cluster, to writing an extension to a large OO-PHP application. I'm a generalist, but my favorite areas are LDAP (and authentication in general), database design and administration, and automation (a broad category that includes writing tools and code to glue services together). Here are my favorite tools.
VMware is making a free virtualization server for Linux and Windows.. That's simply tremendous news, though I'm surprised by how many people I talk to who don't understand why this is so important.
Real revolutions, the ones that last, are often quiet ones.
They aren't shocking. They don't rock the world. They just change the world so slowly that it's only when you wake up one day and think about it, you realize the world isn't the same anymore.
That's what's happened with open source and software development.
While we don't know how Edgar 'Gimli' Hucek did it yet, what we do know is that he appears to be the first to get Linux running on a Mactel. It had been expected that porting Linux to a Mactel would happen relatively quickly, unlike, say porting Windows to the same hardware.

Firefox's appetite memory has some users up in arms, but one of the its developers say they may misunderstand a caching feature.
Once a concept thought to be oxymoronic, the business of open-source software is now working its way through adolescence to full-blown maturity. And the Open Source Business Conference (OSBC) in San Francisco this week proved that like the teen years, the transition brings growing pains.

System and network administrators and packagers alike may find a handy tool in y2pmsh, a shell interface for SUSE Linux's YaST2 package manager.
The former CA chief executive who faces charges following the 2004 $2.2bn accounting scandal at the company has been accused of destroying evidence on his laptop.
Designers are turning to the Linux operating system to meet the escalating user-interface, networking, and multimedia requirements of today's consumer-electronics products.
