How shells call other programs

An article about How Linux or UNIX Understand which program to run got picked up by a few dozen RSS feeds recently. It's not a bad article.

It's actually slightly incorrect though.

Test drive: Kororaa

Filed under
Reviews

Ever wanted to try Gentoo, but you didn't want to spend hours compiling to get a working installation? Kororaa may be the answer. It's a great tool to get a working Gentoo installation, rather than a distinct distro in its own right. It takes some of the complexity out of installing Gentoo, but still provides the advantages of Gentoo's Portage system and extensive package availability.

First Look at VectorLinux SOHO 5.1.1 Deluxe

Filed under
Reviews

When you think of Linux, what distribution comes immediately to mind? The answer will most likely be different depending on whom you ask, and for different reasons. For me, it's Slackware Linux. The reason is that it's not only the oldest surviving Linux distribution on the planet, but it's also one of the best desktop distributions going... in my book at least. With that being said, I introduce to you VectorLinux.

Open Source is the future as Firefox storms ahead

Filed under
OSS

Even as the hype and hoopla surrounding the release of Internet Explorer 7.0 continues to circulate online, it is Firefox, which is quietly doing a great job and is in fact generating more interest that anything that is on the anvil from Redmond at the moment.

On a Global SCALE

Filed under
Linux

I'll tell you one thing about the Southern California Linux Expo: there is certainly no shortage of enthusiasm amongst the attendees. During Aaron Seigo's talk this morning on the progress of the KDE 4 desktop, specifically the Plasma prject he is working with, I nearly fainted from lack of food.

This Week's Open Source Round Up

Filed under
OSS

Looks like a theme for 2006 is beginning to emerge: Intellectual property issues. Not only was GPL3 still a hot topic this week, but we found a very ambitious open source project completely laid out on the tiles due to fear of infringement. One thing seems certain: Open source isn't going to be putting the lawyers out of business any time soon.

Filed under
Microsoft
Reviews

A few days ago, Microsoft released a preview version of Internet Explorer 7. The program is Firefox warmed over. An Opera browser that doesn't quite hit the same high notes. At most, IE 7 puts Microsoft on par with its rivals.

Filed under
HowTos

The problem is people even do not know how Linux or UNIX understands (knows) which program to run. I think many new UNIX Sys admin also does not understand the process. The method used by SHELL is straightforward but often creates confusion for new Linux or UNIX users. Therefore, I thought it is time to document it online.
