The buzz on the Linuxworld show floor has yet to reach Comdex levels (circa the mid 1990s), or even those of a good 1997 Internet World. But booths now fill the Moscone Center floor, and some of them – IBM, Novell, Intel, Oracle, HP, AMD, Motorola — are starting to scale.

I've spent a fair amount of time working with Debian so I'm used to opening a terminal, switching to root and typing apt-get update. One thing about the default terminal though is that it's boring. Just black text on a white background. Fortunately, you don't have to live with it if you don't want to. It's easy to customize the terminal's appearance to suit your fancy.
In this article I will describe how to setup a nearly complete encrypted system using Debian Etch and cryptsetup with LUKS. The goal is: encrypt all partitions except /boot.
For a long time, it's been a given that anything on our Web site that includes the word "Linux" will generate an extra-special amount of reader traffic. But I never dreamed this week's LinuxWorld conference track on "Linux in the Channel" would be sold out—more than five times the anticipated attendees registered.

The long development process of Slackware Linux 11.0 is about to conclude - that's according to Patrick Volkerding who has declared the "current" tree as RC1: "There are still a few changes yet to happen, but let's call this Slackware 11.0 release candidate 1." Other recent changes include upgrade to stable kernel 2.4.33; upgrade to udev 097, and rebuild of glibc 2.3.6 for both 2.4.33 and 126.96.36.199 kernels. The new release will ship with X.Org 6.9.0 and KDE 3.5.4, and will provide SeaMonkey instead of Mozilla.

DOUBTS have arisen over lines of code an anonymous submitter sent to the Linux kernel mailing list on August 6th. The programmer is hiding behind a pseudonym, Shem Multinymous. Fellow Kernel programmers are divided over accepting the code or not.
The open-source movement might not be making Cisco Systems Inc. nervous yet, but it's definitely intent on becoming a serious factor in the networking sphere.
Publishing your own video on YouTube, or watching other people's videos, is all the rage these days. Why are we talking about YouTube, in a column about the CLI? Because this week we're writing about youtube-dl, a clever little CLI tool that's easy to install and and use to fetch YouTube videos.
Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra has announced that an ambitious project to provide low-cost laptop computers to all of Thailand's millions of elementary school students will begin in October.
The U.S.-based "One Laptop per Child" project aims to deliver up to 30 computers to Thailand in October and 500 more in November, Thaksin said in a nationwide radio broadcast on Saturday.
An Open source entrepreneur has published a new 'Honest Public Licence' (HPL) that aims to close loopholes which let firms offering hosted applications escape key stipulations of the General Public License (GPL).
Tech news and discussions website, Neowin.net, has started developing it’s own distribution of Linux, titled Shift, which has just reached version 0.3.
For years, pundits have proclaimed that the Linux Desktop is coming, and yet it was still lacking in some of the critical collaboration apps that enterprises rely on.
