This month we bring you a special edition newsletter with a look at Foresight Linux invading BarCamp Chicago (your Editor included), Foresight's founder and lead developer in the news, a look ahead to Foresight Linux 2, as well as a recap of bug fixes, security updates, and contributing to Foresight Linux.
ubuntugeek.com: ELF prelinking utility to speed up dynamic linking.The prelink package contains a utility which modifies ELF shared libraries and executables, so that far fewer relocations need to be resolved at runtime and thus programs come up faster.
duncanriley.com: It’s been 30 days since I made the grave error of upgrading to Vista. Before that day I was a happy Microsoft customer. I’d downloaded Ubuntu a week ago and had tested it on the laptop when I should have tested it on the desktop.
free software mag: One of the biggest strengths of Debian (and derivatives like Ubuntu) is support for the .deb package. After all, it provides a one-click method of easily installing programs. Best of all, these programs are automatically updated via the official Debian repositories. Unfortunately, the official repositories aren’t always the best.
DPotD: Did you ever wanted to emulate your favorite guitar idol? With Frets on Fire you can try it from your very own keyboard. All you have to do is to pick it up as if it was a guitar, with one hand pressing the fret buttons (F1 to F5) and another pressing the pick button (Enter).
jonobacon@home: Music is important to me. I spend all day every day listening to it and much of my free time making it. As such, the choice of media player is pretty important to me. I have tried all sorts. Well, I have now found a replacement for Rhythmbox - the rather excellent Banshee.
An Oracle database consists of a collection of data managed by an Oracle database management system. Now Oracle Corporation has packaged recent versions for several popular Linux distributions in an attempt to minimize installation challenges beyond the level of technical expertise required to install a database server.
Rudd-O: What you’re seeing is Beryl compositing my desktop (1024×768) while playing one chapter of House M.D. in a window. Later you see me dragging the “cube” (I have a triangle setup) with desktop alpha transparency enabled, and the kiba-dock at the bottom.
register: Sûnnet Beskerming researchers observed an interesting deviation in global network traffic over the last 24 hours, particularly for South American, Asian, and Australian networks.
phoronix: A year ago we had reviewed the M2N32-SLI Deluxe WiFi motherboard from ASUS, which was a phenomenal Socket AM2 motherboard that used NVIDIA's nForce 590 SLI Chipset and featured a number of ASUS innovations. Recently ASUS had sent out to us an updated M2N32-SLI Deluxe WiFi, which adds official support for Microsoft Windows Vista. At hand today we have re-tested the ASUS M2N32-SLI Deluxe and now have additional compatibility comments for Linux as well as Solaris.
/home/liquidat: The Mono project team created a desktop widgets environment similar to SuperKaramba or gDesklets. While in early development the C# based project has interesting features like running separate or combined sandboxes.
kernelTRAP: Theo de Raadt described an active effort by OpenBSD developers to work around "serious bugs in Intel's Core 2 cpu". He went on to explain, "these processors are buggy as hell, and some of these bugs don't just cause development/debugging problems, but will *ASSUREDLY* be exploitable from userland code."
Tom Albers's blog: At least that should have been the topic for a lot of posts today. And because there seem to be an internet problem over there, I thought I steal this topic from the rainy Netherlands.
linuxondesktop: Similar tools already existed on Linux like beagle (supported by novell ), meta tracker etc. However Google Desktop search is not based on any of these tools and uses its proprietary algorithms to search for files on the computer, also being 1.0 release and more stable then these products it could be preferred over tools like beagle.
sheehantu: When I jumped into the Linux/open-source world I didn’t know nor care about the different licenses software had attached with it. I guess I was used to adhering to whatever license that was forced upon me by Microsoft. Now I have a choice. There are many software licenses out there - here are a few popular ones in a nutshell:
I am proud to announce for the first time the Myah OS project will have a graphical package installer. I have used the Xdialog program to create a GTK2 interface for the simple shell script. This means you will be able click on a package and get a Graphical User Interface to assist you.
redmondmag.com: Of all the accusations Microsoft has levelled over the years against open source, perhaps the least contentious is that it lacks the tight integration offered by Microsoft's own products.
linux.com: The third day of the Ottawa Linux Symposium (OLS) featured Jon 'maddog' Hall talking about his dreams for the spread of the Linux Terminal Server Project (LTSP) throughout the third world as an inexpensive, environmentally friendly way of helping get another billion people on the Internet, along with an update on the One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) project, and several other talks.
salatti.net: You want your Ubuntu desktop to be more responsive? It will take less than a half hour to perform all these tweaks. These tweaks will make your system faster and more responsive without a doubt.
free-bees: QEMU lets you emulate a machine - in other words, you can run a virtual computer on top of your real computer. This makes it perfect for trying the latest release of a distribution, running older operating systems, or just testing.
