I have been looking for a new server for quite some time now. My old server is an aging HP NetServer LC3 Dual PII 233 Mhz that was donated to me. I use it as a general purpose home server and I also run a few other services off it, such as our Bugzilla and Subversion repository. It works but it was a little inflexible.
This article shows how to integrate amavisd-new into a Postfix mail server for spam- and virus-scanning. amavisd-new is a high-performance interface between MTAs such as Postfix and content checkers: virus scanners, and/or SpamAssassin.
MySQL has recently appeared as an Enterprise edition. We have already looked at whether MySQL (the company) is enterprise ready, but we can also ask whether the product itself is suitable for enterprise use.
Ubuntu 7.04 is the current development version of the Ubuntu operating system. It is to be released in April 19th 2007. The common name given to this release from the time of its early development was “Feisty Fawn”. We can Use Two methods to upgrade Ubuntu Edgy to Ubuntu Feisty: 1) Using GUI and 2) Using apt-get
Sometimes, it is really needed to run some windows software on your Linux machines, there are different ways to do this, one of them is using wine. We will see here to do it, running at the end of the example the famous putty.exe file. We will see here how to do it for Ubuntu, Debian and Fedora.
Josh Kuo's article Beef Up Your Wireless Router talks about the OpenWRT embedded Linux distro for the the Linksys WRT series wireless routers (and more).
Josh Kuo's article about Vim describes a new time-shifting feature to make your editing life easier.
First let me start by saying that overclocking is very risky, you can seriously damage your system, so please use this guide with care.
That said lets start!
Compiz and Beryl tend to work a bit slow on old video cards, so we overclock!
I have an ATI Radeon 9550 card made by Gigabyte and Ubuntu Feisty.

I decided to give the new Mandriva 2007.1 RC1 a try. Since I mirror cooker, I figured I'd do a straight "urpmi --auto-select" upgrade on my 2007 box rather than downloading a bunch of ISOs.
Earlier this month I covered Ubuntu's Migration Assistant, which is one of the features that will be found in Ubuntu 7.04 Feisty Fawn. The migration-assistant is designed to make it very easy for Microsoft Windows converts to jump into the Ubuntu world by automatically transferring files and settings.
Carsten was already faster and blogged about day 3@CeBIT - so it's time to talk about the first two days
The first two days we had a rather small booth compared to other projects in the LinuxPark (Hall 5): Placed in the corner next to the Debian booth (see photo). However, we managed to attract many interested eyes, and that's after all what's important (see photo).
Originally called "Puzz-le", Anigma was a very well done puzzle game for the Sharp Zaurus. When blocks of the same color are moved next to each other they disappear. The goal is to eliminate all the blocks on each level. Beside colored blocks there are other various objects the player can interact with. This includes elevators, disappearing trap-blocks, fire pits and more.
InfoWorld has an article by Justin Brink about the open source ZoneMinder digital surveillance camera recording software.
OK, so the commercial version of Solaris strictly speaking isn’t free software/open source (although quite a lot of the code is now open, thanks to the OpenSolaris project). But still, since we do quite a lot of Linux and other Unix stuff here on FOSSwire, I thought I might take a quick excursion into Sun’s Unix.
I wrote yesterday about Eben Moglen's upcoming OSBC keynote. It's clearly intended to be a shot over the bow of both proprietary and BSD-style licensing. And that's fine, as we have a wide range of perspectives represented at OSBC.
Gianugo replied to the post, arguing
"Meta-packages" enable Debian/Ubuntu users to install bundles of software easily. They're similar in spirit to VMWare Appliances. Installing a meta-package is equivalent to installing all of its dependencies individually, but easier.
When trying out an Ubuntu daily LiveCD yesterday I noticed the new Ubuntu Restricted Drivers Manager. This manager makes it incredibly easy to manage the binary blob drivers. By default are the ATI/AMD and NVIDIA drivers, and from there you can literally install the drivers almost instantly. It should be very nice for new users!
This guide can be adapted to any distro, its not Ubuntu specific.
