DebConf is best known as an annual gathering of Debian developers. But the Debian project likes the name so much that it uses it -- give or take a capital "C" -- for the system used to configure Debian packages. Just as the conference is central to the social aspects of Debian, so the program is central to the package management system that is one of Debian's main technical advantages. Debconf gives users as fine a degree of control during configuration as they choose.

If you are using LDAP or NIS to manage users you might discover users having problems because they don't have a home directory on each machine they can connect to. Thankfully there is a simple solution for creating home directories upon demand for users.
It sounds like a toy, doesn't it? "Puppy Linux". So cute, and when it first boots you'll hear "Woof-Woof" as a help screen opens. Well, it's not a toy. Although small (the "big" download is 70MB), it includes a lot of the things I'd want to have in a live CD
Ubuntu was awarded a PC World 2006 World Class Award, identifying it as one of PC World's '100 Best Products of the Year. Winners were announced in the July 2006 issue of PC World.
Xara Xtreme LX (Xara LX), the port of Xara's flagship graphics program released under the GNU General Public License, has been developing rapidly since the first code was released in March. The patches have been coming so quickly that any review promised to be obsolete before it was published. That is still true, but, with version 0.5 being treated as a milestone by the company, the time for a first look has finally arrived.
After reading some very positive reactions about the all-new Ubuntu 6.06 LTS ‘Dapper Drake’ release, I decided to go and give it a try as well.
There's a lot of talk around the blogosphere about how Google is starting to challenge Microsoft for primacy in office applications. I use it for simple statistics and as a sort of "database lite" -- I thought I'd give it a try.
One of the hazards of remote firewall administration is the possibility of locking yourself out after an erroneous rulebase change. It can happen with any firewall. There are various ways around this, I'm going to go over a few of them.
A long waited Ubuntu Dapper 6.06 LTS has arrived. Without a doubt this is a huge improvement from Breezy, but there are still some icons and graphics I would change. This page is a collection of improvements to make Dapper look even better. Some of them are made by me and some I have found from web.
The release of Ubuntu Dapper 6.06 caused a lot of buzz even before it happened. So, what's it all about? What does this GNU/Linux distribution really deliver? This review is about that new Ubuntu experience.
For early adopters and advanced technologists who want to test virtualization technology with the IPv6 network protocol, the OpenVZ project today released its operating system-level server virtualization software technology with support for the next-generation Internet Protocol Version 6.
It’s a very serious matter. The GNU/Linux desktop is not ready. It is lacking an important, even essential, component without which it will fail. It’s got all the rest, the opposition has been squashed on every single detail except this one—but it is essential.
Red Hat does not sign up to the standard because it finds some elements lacking. Compliance is not audited, for instance, forcing users to rely on the distribution's reputation and track record.
Logs… Any Linux system will generate many log files by default, containing various information about the operation of the system. If no rotation would occur on the various log files, then they will just grow bigger and bigger, filling up the space, but most importantly making it very difficult to find any information that we might be looking for in those log files.
If you really want a free and good replacement for Microsoft Office, you should be looking to OpenOffice.org, not Google. OK, so it is rather neat that Google is releasing a Web-based spreadsheet, but come on, is it really that big a deal?
A science-fiction cyber-thriller centering around -- and partially written on -- a Sharp Zaurus PDA running Linux is now available in paperback from Amazon.com. Digital Life, by Kevin Milne, aims to depict real-life hacking and digital insurgence more accurately than popular media.
In days gone by, the personification of Linux might have conjured up the image of a hotshot college kid full of half-baked ideas and sharp edges. But that college kid has now graduated into the business world, and unleashed his furious entrepreneurial spirit.

Linux also spans all manner of hardware platforms, and serves an incredibly wide variety of purposes.
