mythtv.org: The major impetus for this release is the shutdown of TMS Labs; among other changes this adds Schedules Direct support. The 0.20.2 release notes have a list of the two major and many minor changes since 0.20.1.
openSUSE 10.3 is set to contain a new, significantly improved and more mature package management stack by default. Today we’ll be taking a look at the new package management and talking to Duncan Mac-Vicar Prett, one of the central libzypp developers.
Merlins Minute: I’ve been getting more done with Ubuntu since my last post so let me fill you in. Seeing as it’s free open source software, I think Microsoft is going to have serious competition in the home PC market before too long.
This document describes how to set up PostBooks ERP on Ubuntu 7.04. The resulting system provides a powerful GUI-based ERP-system.
Linux Today: With all of the sturmundrang out there about Micrsoft's tentative foray into the world of open source licensing, it seems people may be missing another aspect of the discussion.
DPotD: Sometimes you just want to see what connections your machine is making to the outside world and what ports it’s using. While wireshark and tcpdump are really nice for inspecting detailed package contents. IPTraf is really about connections and interface statistics.
Hartwork Blog: Two weeks have passed since I last showed pictures of a possible future of the searching experience with KatePart. Since then progress has been made: Florian Grässle of OpenUsability strongly improved my original dialog drafts and I started implementing the improved dialog mockups.
tom-buntu: If you have been using Ubuntu for a while, you probably know that after 30 boots Ubuntu runs a check on the hard disk. This “Fsck” check slows down booting a lot.
watchingthenet.com: For Windows users setting up and sharing printers on Windows Computers, the process is simple. On Ubuntu or Kubuntu the process is also very easy. This tutorial will show you how to setup and connect your Ubuntu or Kubuntu computer to a shared printer on Windows XP or Vista.
besttechie.net: Yesterday evening, I was in need of something to do and every now and then I get these urges to try out Linux as a desktop OS again. I saw that they had released a new beta version of Ubuntu (the Gusty Gibbon release - which is scheduled for final release sometime in October) and decided I’d try it out in a dual boot with Vista Ultimate and Ubuntu.
kmandla.wordpress.com: Against my better judgement, I tried to install Gobuntu off a daily build CD because I wanted to get a look at it, and to see if I would have any hardware issues with it.
Linux Electrons: Yesterday, the Linux based One Laptop Per Child was presented an INDEX: AWARD for winning the Community category. The INDEX: AWARD is presented every other year, and in addition to the glory, each award comes with a €100 000 prize. INDEX: AWARD operates with five categories, which refer to the context for which the designs are intended: body, home, work, play and community.
arstechnica: Late last night we started receiving reports from readers experiencing problems with Windows Genuine Advantage authentication. Users of both Windows XP and Windows Vista were writing to say that they could not validate their installations using WGA, and one user even said that his installation was invalidated by the service.
blogbeebe: I've been reading lately about how Dell is slated to sell just 20,000 PCs with Linux loaded on them. I've seen that number thrown repeatedly into the faces of an uncaring blogosphere by folks who obviously have no love for either Linux of Ubuntu.
Following the Edu Day at aKademy, I got a Classmate PC which is a machine Intel developed. The laptop has a Suse system on it with KDE 3.5.1 and my goal is to see how KDE-Edu applications run on it.
laptopcom: If you are eager to have one Asus Eee mini laptop you can visit NCIXUS Retailer. They offer 5 models with different 5 prices that you can order. The retailer says that your order shipment takes 1 to 2 weeks.
blogbeebe: After booting this release of Ubuntu on a machine with an ATI graphics card, I moved over to my other box that has an nVidia-based Gigabyte 7600 GS AGP video card. I had no idea how Ubuntu would handle this card in a live situation.
kernelTRAP: In the continuining discussion about how GCC treats the volatile keyword, Linus Torvalds noted, "I just have a strong suspicion that 'volatile' performance is so low down the list of any C compiler persons interest, that it's never going to happen. And quite frankly, I cannot blame the gcc guys for it."
the distrogue: Windows and OS X aren't perfect (or BSD or Haiku or whatever), but there are distributions that would be better suited to a complete Linux newbie than Ubuntu. Arguably two of the best are PCLinuxOS and Mint.
