Repair and recovery tools continue to be difficult for inexperienced, and often experienced, users. Most top distros come with a Live CD that allow you to boot into a desktop and also install from it. That's great, but it should be just as easy to repair an existing installation. Unfortunately it's not so easy.
While id Software and Epic Games are among the few major companies that are Linux gaming patrons, if you've been wanting to play such games as Battlefield 2142 or Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, you will now be able to do so starting April 14! Next week Transgaming will be introducing Cedega 6.0 "Swordfish".
Listen up, nuggets. You're in a Colonial Viper. You've got no wingman, three inbound Cylon Heavy Raiders, and you just spotted a Basestar several klicks away. What do you do? Choose your own adventure:
1. Whiz your flight suit.
2. Call for backup and fire up your FTL drive
3. Hammer down the trigger and go for the gold
As you may or may not know, openSUSE is in need of a slogan, a mission statement, a "one-liner", if you will. Ubuntu has their "Linux for human beings" slogan, now it's time to help create ours. This is an awesome chance to help define how the openSUSE project will be presented to the masses.
So, there I was in Salt Lake City, sick as a dog, with my faithful IBM T40 ThinkPad. This system uses a 1.5 GHz Pentium M processor with 1 MB of L2 cache, and a 400 MHz FSB (Front Side Bus). It has 512 MB of DDR SDRAM memory, and a built-in ATI Mobility Radeon 9000 AGP 4x with 32 MB of VRAM for graphics.
In the latest Firefox 3 status meeting, a release schedule draft was published. In brief:
* Alpha 4, by the end of April
* Alpha 5, by the end of May
* Alpha 6, by the end of June
* Beta 1, in July
* Beta 2, on September
So, considering a run of release candidates during October, Firefox 3 should be around November according to this schedule. I find it somewhat aggressive.
If you just can’t choose between GNOME and KDE, or you just want a change of scenery every now and then, it’s really easy to install multiple desktop environments and seamlessly switch between them.
It’s really easy to install them - just use your distribution’s package management system to add your desktop environment of choice.
So you've been using Linux for a while now and have decided to take the next step. Whether you are looking for a performance increase, added hardware support or even just to enhance your geek cred, compiling your own kernel need not be a horrifying experience. Compiling a kernel has historically been a very involved and, at times, frustratingly hair pulling experience for new Linux users.
We’ve written about portable apps quite a number of times in the past, but why bother with just apps when there’s a whole OS that’ll fit on a 50MB USB stick? Damn Small Linux, sometimes abbreviated DSL, is a 50MB mini desktop Linux distribution.
You might have noticed that fonts are quite fuzzy on Linux desktops which can make your eyes ache if you have to sit in front of your computer all day long. Font rendering is still a little bit awkward and one of the last weaknesses of Linux desktops. This tutorial shows how you can make GNOME and all GNOME applications (such as Evolution, the file browser Nautilus, etc.) use sharp fonts.
Mandriva Linux 2007 Spring is the latest edition of Mandriva Linux, the product of more than than nine years of continuous innovation for desktops and enterprise servers.
In “The Cathedral and The Bazaar” Eric S. Raymond tried to convince the world that the open source development model (the bazaar) was better and cheaper than the traditional -closed- model (the cathedral). Of course this it utter nonsense. When I think of a bazaar I remember the soukh of Marrakech or Casablanca.
If you’re tired of having to visit your favorite social network, whenever you want to message friends or share content, why not have the network come to you for a change?
That’s exactly what Mozilla has planned with their Mozilla Labs experiment, “The Coop“. The Coop is a Firefox browser extension that places the social network exactly where you’d use it the most - your browser.
Just over a year ago, I made the decision to dual boot my laptop (which is also my primary computer) with Ubuntu and Windows XP. I’ve spent the majority of that time in my Linux partition and I haven’t actually booted into Windows in over a month now.
A hackergotchi is a picture of a person's head that's used as an avatar for identification on a blog. Any region below the neck is cut out, as are any portions of the picture that don't include the head. You can create a hackergotchi easily with a digital camera and the GIMP.

Toward the end of last week the first tech demo for the upcoming MyahOS 3.0 was released. The Myah 3.0 Tech Demo 1 LiveCD is optimized for i686 systems and is built using the Linux-Live scripts and has a lot of new packages including the Linux 18.104.22.168 kernel, GCC 4.1.2, X.Org 7.2, and Xfce 4.4.
The Linux Foundation (LF), the nonprofit organization dedicated to accelerating the growth of Linux, has announced three new members who represent the increasing opportunity for Linux as it continues to mature on devices.
