The feud between celebrities Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan has taken a turn for the geeky, with a small fake Caller ID seller accusing Hilton of hacking into voicemail accounts on an un-named mobile phone network.
This morning I got a contract in the email from a lawyer and clicked on it, and MS Word started opening. Sigh. Then, my Mac locked up. After I cycled the power a couple of times, it was essentially a brick. If you’re reading this, I’m moving along OK; this is the first-ever ongoing post not authored on and posted from a Macintosh.
By now, you've probably heard that Intel has a new chip out that went by the code-name “Conroe” but now goes by the names Core 2 Duo and Core 2 Extreme. So while you may have read about how great these chips are under Windows, I bet you have heard little to no news about Linux performance or even Linux support. As usual, this is where Linux Hardware comes in to fill in the gaps.
The Free Standards Group (FSG), a nonprofit organization dedicated to developing and promoting open source software standards, announced that two applications on Linux -- RealPlayer and the MySQL database -- are certifying to the Linux Standard Base.
One of the cool things about Linux? Remote administration. I didn’t have to go down to the data center, use a KVM switch and look at a NT GUI. Well, I just got another dose of Microsoft in the form of Fedora Linux. I started installing their free directory server and what a mess. Actually, it’s broke like Red Hat 5.0 was broke.
Version 2.2.13 of the GNU Image Manipulation Program is a bug-fix release in the stable 2.2 series. The source code is available from ftp.gimp.org. For some platforms binary packages are already available, others will follow.
At the heart of the matter is hardware. Hardware vendors have been reluctant to delve too deeply into open source. They worry that by releasing open-source drivers for their products they will give their competitors too much information about their hardware. As a result, Linux users are regularly forced to compromise their “pure” open-source environments for the sake of hardware.
Breen, a teacher in the Adams-Cheshire Regional School District, is a member of the Berkshire Linux Users Group, a club composed of 50 or so other computer fans who get together on the third Tuesday of every month at 7 p.m. to discuss — well — the coolest grassroots operating system ever. Call it the anti-Windows.
I believe that, in the same way that the right tool should be used for the job, the right OS (Operating System) should be used for the job. There is no such thing as “the best Operating System” (although, if there were, I’d like to think it was Linux ), but there is a “most suitable Operating System for a certain job.”
We all know that the GIMP is more or less the de-facto standard for image editing in Linux, where Adobe Photoshop is the standard on the Mac and Windows (and some Linux boxes using Crossover Office) The question is the following: Does GIMP have what it takes to dethrone Adobe Photoshop as the standard?
Your browser does a good job of fetching web documents and displaying them, but there are times when you need an extra strength download manager to get those tougher HTTP jobs done.
Ubuntu is making some people antsy. Recall that this distro is a clever repackaging of Debian designed to make Linux simpler for the average person to use while still remaining free and fully open source (unlike some other Debian-based consumer distributions such as Linspire or Xandros). What's wrong with that, you say?
This howto will show you howto store your users in LDAP and authenticate some of the services against it. I will not show howto install particular packages, as it is distribution/system dependant. I will focus on "pure" configuration of all componenets needed to have LDAP authentication/storage of users.
Confused about modifying forms? Worried about editing Microsoft Office documents with OpenOffice 2.0? In this tip, Haugland helps users deal with databases one form at a time and describes two separate methods for creating data lists using secondary tables.
Novell is giving away fifty–count ‘em! fifty!–one year activation codes of SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop to members of the open source community. Fifty activations at a list price of USD$50 means fifty squared. That’s almost a $2500 value.
Eric S. Raymond is one of the founders of open-source, and a good deal of Linux's early popularity came from his non-stop beating of the drum for the free software operating system. Then, a few years ago, he bowed out of the limelight to live his own life. Recently, however, Raymond shows signs of once more playing a bigger role in open-source circles.
