So, Day 3 found me moving into my PC-BSD desktop. Overall, it wasn't a bad experience. I learned a few things. Today the PC-BSD team put out an update to the PC-BSD 1.3, which is now is at 1.3.01. This is great, because it gave me a chance to use the Update Manager. I am pleased to report that it worked perfectly. And then the trouble started.
The openSuSE or just the old SUSE linux is the other M$ rival. It is by far in my experience the GREAT Microsoft rival ever. It has always been towards Desktop and usability. A truly DESKTOP linux distribution which offers its new YaST tool. Well not that it is new but it is far better than the last YaST I have tried.
This guide describes how you can automatically scan files uploaded by users through a web form on your server using PHP and ClamAV. That way you can make sure that your upload form will not be abused to distribute malware. To glue PHP and ClamAV, we install the package php5-clamavlib/php4-clamavlib which is rather undocumented at this time. That package is available for Debian Etch and Sid and also for Ubuntu Dapper Drake and Edgy Eft.
If anyone needs a Linux desktop which is fast on a pentium 3 machine with ram less than 256mb, Zenwalk-4.2 is one of the clear candidates. Yeah, you can also opt for Xubuntu, fluxbuntu, etc. Slackware-based Zenwalk was previously know as Minislack.
To create panorama images in GIMP, you need to install the Pandora plugin. Pandora is a GIMP plug-in which helps in stitching together multiple images to make a panorama. It does not find image matches automatically, but it does automate the most tedious part of making a panorama.
opensuse-xgl-settings is a script that can enable, disable and configure xgl/compiz on openSUSE 10.2 with point and click.
"Penguins have always been a popular animal, but they do seem to be taking the nation by storm," says Christina Slager, curator of the penguin exhibit at California's Monterey Bay Aquarium.
The World Wide Web and the HTML markup language have evolved, which has presented a challenge for people writing Web browser software. Some Web sites offer a label that says, “optimized for Internet Explorer” or “optimized for Netscape Navigator”. Generally, what this label really means is that the Web site is not standards-compliant.
I had an old Toshiba PII 266 Mhz (I think), 4 GB HD, 32 Mb RAM preinstalled with windows 95 lying around, and I thought it with be fun to mess around with it a bit. Given the low specs of my toshiba box, I figured I needed to use either a distro with a text based installer or a distro with a very lightweight window manager, such as fluxbox.
All the buzz these days is about the Apple iPhone (not to be confused with the Linksys iPhone). I have to admit, the iPhone is pretty cool, and I was really excited about it for a few hours. Then, reality started to sink in and I realized that the iPhone is probably not something for me. Here are 10 reasons why I’d like to buy a Nokia N800 instead of an Apple iPhone.
Whenever a Linux system CPU is occupied by a process, it is unavailable for processing other requests. Pending requests must wait till CPU is free. This becomes a bottleneck in the system. Following command will help you to identify CPU utilization, so that you can troubleshoot CPU related performance problems.
A few months back we had looked at the Abit AW9D i975X motherboard, which was one of the first motherboards to come out of the Universal Abit camp. What we have on the table to look at today is the Abit NF-M2 nView. The NF-M2 nView is an AM2 motherboard that is powered by the NVIDIA GeForce 6150 with nForce 430 that offers both onboard DVI and VGA support along with 7.1 channel HD audio, Abit Silent OTES, and IEEE-1394a Firewire.

Installing Ubuntu linux truly could not be easier. All the hard work is done for you. There are two methods of installing Ubuntu. You may either dual boot it along with Windows or you may reformat your hard drive (erasing Windows) and install Ubuntu in its place.
Avi Kivity suggested that combining KVM, the Kernel-based Virtual Machine, with the dyntick patch could improve overall KVM performance. He noted that it would likely improve performance of both the host by "avoiding expensive vmexits due to useless timer interrupts," as well as on the guest by "reducing the load on the host when the guest is idling (currently an idle guest consumes a few percent cpu)".
Come February 18th we will usher in the year of the Pig. Looking at Linux in the perspective of the Pig we know that Richard Stallman begun his path down the Open Source road at MIT and Unix version 1 was written in 1971. In 1983 Stallman announced the GNU project and SCO Xenix was released. Outside of these events, there were no other major Open Source events in the Year of the Pig. However, Apple released its first GUI in 1983 and Windows ’95, well I think that speaks for itself. Maybe 2007 will prove to be Linux’s year.
