Last June I wrote about suspending and hibernating laptops under Linux. Since then a few things have changed -- thankfully, for the better -- so it's time to revisit the subject. Also, a few readers have responded offering suggestions for improving the suspend shell script I wrote back then, and I've incorporated these suggestions in a new version; unfortunately most of the comments are anonymous, so I can't give proper credit to their authors.
There are several programs fulfilling the same or similar functions to be installed on a single system at the same time. For example, many systems have several text editors, different web browsers, Multimedia players, or graphics editors at once.
PHP has a notorious security history, but web hosts have to provide it. Suhosin is a security patch that can be applied to change behaviour of the default PHP install in security related ways, and is now packaged in Debian Etch and Sid, with some of it built into the default PHP builds, and some available as an extra.
Google Summer of Code 2007 is on! We will begin accepting applications in March, so until then take a look at the FAQs and the advice for would-be students and mentors on the program wiki.
Knoppix 5.1.0 was released around late December 2006. Then version 5.1.1 was released in early January 2007, apparently to correct some rather serious flaws. There were stability issues as well. Knoppix 5.1.1 fixed that flaw and more, as well as making the overall 5.1 release a lot more stable. Knoppix 5.1.1 is the release to burn and boot.
As ODF (Open Document Format) advances as an open alternative for text documents, spreadsheets and presentations it makes more sense to be able to open these documents from Firefox directly.

The popularity of OpenOffice, the open source productivity suite, will be key to the financial success of Novell, said company president and CEO, Ron Hovsepian, who hopes to be a 'custodian' between the open source community and the commercial world.
One sure way to catch the eye in the IT marketplace these days is by announcing that you are "going open source" - whatever that means.
I can still remember the wow factor when first seeing a copy of Knoppix booting up on a Windows machine. These days Knoppix is no longer alone, there are plenty of other Linux live CDs available. For those who've ever wondered how it all works or have entertained ideas of creating their own live CDs then Christopher Negus has put together a book that opens the lid on the arcane secrets involved.
The X.Org community is proud to announce the release of X11R7.2, the third modular release of the X Window System. X11R7.2 supports Linux, BSD, Solaris, Microsoft Windows and GNU Hurd systems.
In the last few years Linux has made great strides forward in the provision of professional applications for the creation, manipulation, and recording of audio and music. It is now possible to create a professional level Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) using only Free Software.

During last weekend's Southern California Linux Expo 5x, Sam Leffler of the FreeBSD Project and FreeBSD Foundation and "old school" hacker from the UC Berkeley Computer Systems Research Group (where the original Berkeley Software Distribution was developed) took some time to explain to me what the Foundation actually does, and the kind of work it has fostered. We also chatted briefly about the current status of FreeBSD, and the degree to which Apple contributes to the Project.
SoundJuicer is the CD ripper of choice for Ubuntu, but it doesn't rip directly to MP3, nor does it give you the option to do so. To create that option...
Sizing the Linux market ecosystem is no easy task. Downloads of Linux operating systems and applications are not an accurate measure. Analyst firm IDC, however, has a handle on the market and its size, and it's large.
Book Review: Designing and Implementing Linux Firewalls and QoS using netfilter, iproute2, NAT, and L7-filterSubmitted by srlinuxx on Thursday 15th of February 2007 10:00:51 PM Filed under
As is reminiscent of many of the books written by authors for Packt Publishing, the first chapter begins with descriptions and re-introductions to many of the basic networking concepts. These include the OSI model, subnetting, supernetting, and a brief overview of the routing protocols. Chapter 2 discusses the need for network security and how it applies to each of the layers of the OSI model.
If you’ve used the command line in Linux at all, you’ve probably heard about links. Symbolic links, soft links, hard links, links, links, links. What the heck are these things anyway?
Quanta Computer, the world's largest contract laptop PC manufacturer, already has confirmed orders for one million notebook PCs for the One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) project, a company representative said Thursday.
Colonizing a new world is not a trivial task, even when you're doing it in a clone of a famous game. FreeCol is a free-as-in-free-software Java-based clone of Sid Meier's Colonization that's currently at the 0.5.3 release.
Zero Install is one of the more promising alternatives to native package systems for Linux distributions, such as RPM and Debian's dpkg. It begins with a criticism of existing package systems the difficulties of using them, and is built to provide an answer to the problems raised by the critique.
Microsoft and Novell have been making a big deal of their big deal to work together to soothe customers' cross-platform pain points. But it remains to be seen whether and how far the deal will end up extending beyond the realm of press releases and presentation slide decks.
