Follow-Up: Attack on machine

Filed under

ahfaeroey.wordpress: Some of you might have read my previous blog post about the attack on Exherbo’s quote database that I wrote about yesterday. As promised I am going to write a follow up post about how this was handled and what the result of the cooperation with Gentoo’s infrastructure team was.

From Windows to Ubuntu

Filed under
Ubuntu Chief among these “things I’d like to change when I have the time” was my use of Windows XP as my operating system. So I downloaded a Ubuntu ISO CD image, burned that, backed up my data, then formatted my hard drive and installed Linux.

Ubuntu Hardy Heron on a Mac Mini

Filed under

rfdlinux.wordpress: My broadband connection was barely 24 hours old when work began on migrating to the latest version of Ubuntu. Hardy Heron, as it’s called, is very nice on the Mini. What follows is how I did it, what I used, what worked, and what didn’t.

Pardus 2008 : A testdrive

wamukota.blogspot: A few weeks ago I was asked to testdrive Pardus - a distro of Turkish origin. It was released on june 27 and here is my report on this distro.

The 'killer' linux ....Ships AHOY!

Filed under

linuxgeeksunited.blogspot: Everyone uses the "car" analogy. Expecting Linux to someday ZOOM ahead of the pack and leave the likes of MS and Apple in the dust on the track. This mental approach doesn't always do it for people and they get discouraged because of the mindset like that they walked in with.

The popular emergence of apt-git?

Filed under

jldugger.livejournal: It's no secret that Canonical is a large proponent of Bazaar (bzr) and would like to use Ubuntu as a guinea pig for large scale deployments. At UDS Prague, James Westby gave an interview about using "distributed version control systems" (DVCS) for coordinating development. The interviewer is a bit confused about how the Ubuntu flavors interact, so I think an explanation of DVCS and Ubuntu development is in order.

Why Ubuntu's LTS releases are inferior to Red Hat Enterprise Linux

Filed under
Linux It's time to update my view of Ubuntu with my most recent set of feelings. Well, with why I feel my most recent set of feelings, which is that Ubuntu LTS is significantly inferior to Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

Free as in Beer

Filed under

sharplinux.blogspot: As I mentioned in my last Independence Day post, most free software is free in the monetary sense of the word. One of Richard Stallman's memorable and concise ways of making the "free" distinction is to say "think free speech, not free beer." The problem with the term "free software" seems to be that many users can't think past the "free-as-in-beer" quality.

Two great time-saving tips for Firefox 3

Filed under
Moz/FF Firefox is by far the most used alternative browser. I believe that comes in part thanks to its flexibility for customization and the myriad of useful add-ons you can get for it. My following tips, however, lay on the side of about:config tweaks.

How I got over the hurdles to migrate from XP to Kubuntu 8.04

Filed under
Ubuntu I find that Kubuntu needs a few critical tweaks before it is useable by end users, in particular, in the CJK market. Such tweaks are not very well documented and take quite some serious research efforts, even for an experienced Linux/Ubuntu server administrator.

List of FTP Clients Available for Linux

Filed under
Software FTP is a file transfer protocol for exchanging files over any TCP/IP based network to manipulate files on another computer on that network. There are many existing FTP client and server programs.

The Perfect Desktop - OpenSUSE 11 (GNOME)

Filed under

This tutorial shows how you can set up an OpenSUSE 11 desktop that is a full-fledged replacement for a Windows desktop, i.e. that has all the software that people need to do the things they do on their Windows desktops. The advantages are clear: you get a secure system without DRM restrictions that works even on old hardware, and the best thing is: all software comes free of charge.

KDE: It’s time for a fork

Filed under
KDE OK, I’ve now tried KDE 4.1. I’d been assured that it would be better than KDE 4.0x. It is. That’s the good news. The bad news is that I still find KDE 4.1 to be inferior to KDE 3.5x. KDE’s developers believe that KDE 4.1 “can fully replace KDE 3 for end users.” I don’t see it.

Ubuntu Hardy Heron is Unstable

Filed under

opencomputing.blogspot: I've been running Hardy now for quite a while, and I've come to the conclusion that it isn't stable. I will probably be downgrading to Gutsy very soon, however much I dislike the idea of doing so. To me, downgrading doesn't feel like I'm being part of the solution, but rather that I'm just bypassing the problem.

Linux Mint 5

Filed under

odysseus.wordpress: My Linux evolution went from Linspire to Mepis to PCLinuxOS to Ubuntu. I stayed with PCLinuxOS and Ubuntu for the longest. However, I have always read good things about another distribution called Linux Mint. So, I downloaded the latest iso and tried it out to see how it all worked.
