Robert Day proposed a couple of new kernel code maturity configuration options for tagging code as either "deprecated" or "obsolete". He referenced earlier confusion around the attempt to remove devfs [story] in which it wasn't clear on the current state and future plans for the code.
In my last post called Keeping an eye on the companies goods I commented about a very useful program called SysAid. I previously used it under RedHat Fedora core 4 where it worked quite well. Installing it was a bit of a hassle and this was where I sampled the superb technical support of the SysAid team.
Now and again, I show some new Linux users some of the games that are available for Ubuntu. Many of those times, theres a seasoned Ubuntu user close by, who says that they haven’t seen that before. I decided to put together a list of 10 games in the Ubuntu Universe that I have installed.
Open source Could be on the short-list when it comes to application-buying decisions in 2007. Open source has won the first battle: it is now listed among the default platform decisions.
If You have a old machine without CD-ROM and you want to use that as your ubuntu desktop You can use any one of the following solutions to install ubuntu.
This document describes how to attach modems to a Linux box and allow it to receive calls to connect users to the network. It is like being your own ISP (Internet Service Provider). If your Linux box is connected to the Internet, then the users will also be connected to the Internet. Your Linux box becomes a router. This is also known as RAS (Remote Access Services) in the Microsoft world. In the Linux world it is called PPP (Point to Point Protocol).
The time is drawing near. The highly anticipated release of the all new PCLOS is right around the corner. Tex and the gang are uploading a beta to mirrors for public testing, but this lucky gal has been running an early beta on my new laptop for a coupla weeks now. I know, I can feel it in my bones, that this release will cause quite a stir. PCLOS already has one of the most loyal fan-bases in the game, but this release will bring more users than ever. I even think some larger distros will be feeling a bit of dread as announcements go out. Not only is the all new PCLOS the most beautiful yet, but it is updated to include some of the latest and greatest software available - all on top of an all new modern code base. Development has been long and hard, but the results will soon be known far and wide. Here's a bit of a sneak peek for those interested.
There is little about virtual worlds that is solid. Granted, life in an online fantasy like Second Life is supposed to be ephemeral, no more concrete than the electrons that make a computer screen come to life. But Philip Rosedale is CEO of a living, breathing company behind Second Life called Linden Lab, and it is riding a real-world wave of new users and publicity that suggests the blossoming of an Internet superstar.
Watching flash video (flv) with your own source of subtitles. How can it be done? With some simple steps and mplayer.
I have inherited an IBM Thinkpad R50e with a lowly 256mb RAM. OK not very startling, but it used to run W2K fine, and in fact came with WXP. Do as it was doing nothing else, I though it was perfect to join the Ubuntu world and give me something else to distract me from the the troubles of the world.
Bluefish is a powerful editor for experienced web designers and programmers. Bluefish supports many programming and markup languages, but it focuses on editing dynamic and interactive websites.
China is about to put on sale its own computers running with its own processor and Linux. This news will not bring unalloyed delight to Intel and Microsoft.
Novell signed a business agreement with Microsoft last year, and many in the open source community started taking shots at Novell. Others in the community are now jabbing at each other, with the rhetoric level rising.
In general, one of the hardest things about Linux is learning is the command-line interface (CLI). Linux servers aren't usually equipped with click and go menus like Windows. But this allows you to have a more robust and tailor-made system when using RHEL servers.
A new e-learning and collaborative training portal was just launched during an awards ceremony for attendees of Shiksha India Trust. What makes Shiksha unique is that one core phase of the development of India's educational e-learning is explicitly based on Open Source tools and initiatives.
Ever wanted to take your Wii-mote on the road, how about some Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess on the commuter bus? Those whacky guys over at endgaget have out done them-selves this time. Over the past few weeks they have been deep in the lab piecing together a portable version of the new Nintendo wonder console.
Coupled with the unceasing increase in central processing unit performance, visualization has paved the way for an epidemic of datacenter consolidation. IT directors looking to buy new hardware are suddenly being redirected by their integrators into spending a little more on hardware and VM licenses, and collapsing dozens of physical servers to a few virtualization hosts.
Canonical Ltd today announced that it has been named one of the 'Top 20 Companies to Watch in 2007' by Linux Magazine. Canonical was selected as one of the companies best positioned in the coming year to spur Linux and Open Source adoption, while delivering on the immediate needs of the marketplace.
There was a time, not that long ago, when you were lucky if you could get two years of shelf life out of a technology book. The irony of this lament hit me hard when I realized that only five months ago I was reviewing Red Hat Fedora 5 Unleashed. Just as Fedora Core 5 (a free, open-community, version of Red Hat) was a solid build and Fedora Core 6 enhances it, the Unleashed 5 book was a good one, and this book builds on that solid foundation.
