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:
A push is under way to endow Linux with a virtual partitioning technology used by rival operating systems to make servers more efficient. SWsoft is trying to get OpenVZ made part of the mainstream Linux kernel.
This week, the University of Otago will host the first linux.conf.au Australian Linux conference to be held outside Australia. This year’s event will involve as speakers some of the seminal figures of Linux and wider open source development.
DHCP stands for dynamic host configuration protocol. What it does is dynamically assign network settings from a server. In other words, instead of having to configure the parameters related to how your computer communicates with a network, it happens automatically.
