A new issue of the Amarok newsletter is out. It talks about interesting new developments, Amarok's Summer of Code projects, the current events in the 1.4 stable branch, and continues to provide cool Amarok-related tips.
Being a huge fan of FreeBSD and a big fan of Linux, I’ve sometimes found myself torn between the two. I love FreeBSD for its simplicity, it’s structure, and how tight and clean it is. Linux is similar to that, but not quite as clean, and definitely not as tight and simple.
Tux, the cherubic penguin mascot of the Linux computer operating system has just taken up residence on the front nose of the Chastain Motorsports Panoz / Honda Indy car.
Yesterday I downloaded a copy of Ubuntu's latest release, version 7.04 Feisty Fawn. The download took some hours because of busy servers but I think that it was well worth it.
Just when you think you understand Linux development, along comes something new. "There are no road d project's camera driver, and editor of the popular Linux site LWN.
"A lot of what's going to be in future kernels is already out there if you know where to look for it," Corbet explained at the Embedded Linux Conference Wednesday in Santa Clara, Calif.
Recently, I took a quick look at the Unix concept of mount points. Performing the mount command is a nice easy way to get access to something on a one-off.
A lot of the time, however, you’ll want to set it up so the system permanently mounts said filesystem - so on reboot, you don’t have to run all of the commands again.
Using PCLinuxOS 2007 TR3 for the last few weeks, I’ve noticed VAST improvements over the .93a release. The most noticable of these is boot times. My boot time is absolutely amazing on this Dell E521n...it averages 30-40 seconds. That’s right. 30-40 SECONDS. I was floored the first time I booted after install. I thought I had done something wrong.
OK, you love Ubuntu, but after awhile, the same-old, same-old GRUB and boot splash screens become tedious and boring. Could it be your Ubuntu needs a little SUM-thing to spice it up? If you're up for a walk on the wild side, try StartUp Manager (SUM), a utility created by Glenn Van Loon that lets you change bootloader and splash screen settings in Ubuntu.
One of the world's leading advocates of the open source software movement, Brian Bahlendorf gave a talk at the Digital Freedom Expo at the University of the Western Cape on Thursday, entitled "Ten things you may not know about open source".
Behlendorf was a key developer of the Apache Web server, upon which more than half the world's websites run.
I got overwhelming e-mails asking me how to install properly ATI drivers under openSUSE 10.2. I directed them to different sites, including a reference to one of mine that I wrote for SUSE 10.1, but seems like they are still having problems. Instead of explaining to everyone on an individual basis I decided to make a fresh post.
The linux desktop with the wide choice of Window managers and the ample supply of eye candy is a constant source of envy for Windoze users.
Without images and colors, the linux desktop would not be of much interest to Windows people.
If you have questions about Linux or open source projects, real-time help is often just a keyboard away -- if you know where to look online. Forums, mailing lists, and Googling are all useful when you have questions, but if you really want answers fast, Internet Relay Chat (IRC) is the place to look. If you've never ventured into IRC, here's all you need to get started.
The GNOME desktop environment comes with a simple and single-minded CD burner application built into the Nautilus file manager (not dissimilar to what Microsoft bundles with Windows XP’s Windows Explorer and Vista’s Explorer) that can handle a lot of your file burning needs. But what do you do if you need more complex tasks done, like burning or ripping an ISO file, or creating an audio CD?
A protester calling for free computer software and open source programming crashed a speech Friday by Microsoft Corp. Chairman Bill Gates at one of China's top universities.
The University of Nevada Office of Information Technology has announced, with great fanfare, its decision to offer technical support for the Mozilla Firefox Internet browser. This week, the Student Computing Support Center on the second floor of the Student Union has been hosting an open house to promote Firefox.
The purists are forever crying out that the word Linux refers to the kernel only. True. However for the general public the word has come to mean a collection of programs making up an operating system in the same way an orchestra means a collection of musical instruments and musicians.
During my years as a Unix Systems Administrator and Quality Assurance Engineer, one of the most indispensable tools in my Unix tool box has been Perl. A Perl "power programmer" I am not, though almost daily I find new ways to incorporate simple (and sometimes not so simple) Perl logic into my work, which results in increased productivity and efficiency.
The Novell executive who architected an historic technology and intellectual property agreement with Microsoft has scolded rival Red Hat for not being innovative and warned Oracle's Linux play will fragment the company's operating system.
Quanta Computer's shipments of XO notebooks under the OLPC (One Laptop per Child) project may be delayed, again, to the fourth quarter instead of the third quarter due to a delay in designs of varied application scenarios for different emerging markets, according to an April 20 Chinese-language Commercial Times report.
