If you don't trust your customers and have to treat them like criminals and have to continually tighten the screws, if you have to keep everything a big secret, perhaps the problem is not them derned defective customers, but your approach to running a business.
With a new version of Mandriva, 2007.1 Spring edition, coming out soon, I decided to take a look at the choice of default applications installed. One of the things a lot of people agreed about, was that the program gcdmaster (a front-end for cdrdao), probably was not the best choice as an audio burning application. For data CD and DVD burning, there is nautilus-cd-burner, but what would be the best choice for music CDs?
It seems to be a trend among some proprietary software vendors: attacking open source with lies. The latest appears in this week's Network World's Face-off, which features a slop-bucket full of self-serving hogwash by Ipswitch's Roger Greene entitled "Don't trust your network to open source." If ignorance were a crime, Greene would be swinging from the gallows.
Alameda County Superior Court Judge Julie Conger said Friday afternoon that there is sufficient evidence to order Oakland software developer Hans Reiser to stand trial on charges that he murdered his wife, Nina Reiser, last year.
Originally, reports stated that bill AB 1668 would require state agencies to use the open document format (ODF) spearheaded by the group responsible for OpenOffice, but this is not true.
You can use the Logical Volume Manager (LVM) in Linux to create virtual drives, and when used with RAID, LVM provides redundancy. Vincent Danen's tip will show you how to create your first volume.
The preliminary hearing for an Oakland man accused in the murder of his wife is set to continue this morning (9:00). A judge will decide whether there's enough evidence to try Hans Reiser for the murder of Nina Reiser.
This short guide shows some important commands for your daily work on the Linux command line. Some include arch, cat, cp, date, and df.
One of free software's premier applications, KDE's CD and DVD burning suite K3b, is about to hit the big 1-0. This milestone touts rewritten DVD video ripping and a refocused interface design. The new release represents a level of feature-completeness and stability that surpasses all previous K3b releases and, perhaps, all free software competitors.
A Unix daemon is a program that runs in the “background,” enabling you to do other work in the “foreground,” and is independent of control from a terminal. Daemons can either be started by a process, such as a system startup script, where there is no controlling terminal, or by a user at a terminal without “tying up” that terminal as the daemon runs. But which daemons can you safely play with? Which should you leave running?
Last year, in Massachusetts, we saw open source being used as a political football. But the underlying issue in that case was technological, the state's adoption of ODF as a standard format. Now, in England, we're again seeing open source being used by politicians.
Truecrypt is an Open Source disk encryption software which uses a concept of containers to store encrypted data. The nice thing about Truecrypt is that the containers (or volumes) can be read transparently under Linux and Windows. Here are step by step instructions how to use the truecrypt-installer utilities to get Truecrypt running with minimum of effort.
I got my laptop on Friday two weeks ago. One of the first things I did was partition the drive, and install OpenSuse 10.2, 64bit version. The installation went smoothly and everything (including WLAN) worked perfect. In this workshop I want to explain the installation of the 3D cube using XGL and Compiz.
Growing consumer disappointment with Windows Vista, coupled with the need of major businesses and government agencies to begin assessing long-term computing needs, seems to be forcing IT professionals to consider non-Microsoft alternatives for their operating system and office suite applications.
Explore how to remotely debug a FreeBSD kernel that is running on a target machine without affecting system performance. In this article, examine setting up the debug environment using serial communication port, compiling modified kernel code, debugging, and troubleshooting tips.
I’m starting to think that I have to agree with Paul Thurrott: this year will not be the “Year of Desktop Linux”…again. While some people have some idea that Linux has the tools to do as such today, a better example to compare to is probably Apple’s OS X. OS X has all the tools to rapidly and easily take over the desktop world. But like Paul Thurrott quoted, OS X market share is between 2.5% and 4%.
Linux server revenue grew slightly in the fourth quarter of 2006, according to the latest research from IDC. But while overall Linux usage is growing, the number of physical Linux servers being shipped to enterprises may be suffering due to the trend of virtualization.
Fear is stalking the corridors of corporate power, as executives sweat over the legal exposure caused by developers using open source software. And the suits are resorting to play-it-safe legal advice and draconian management techniques in a vain attempt to stop open source crossing their frontier.
When you start learning the source code of an unfamiliar project, you don't have the knowledge of its structure or the meaning of specific functions, classes, and units in the project. You can use tags to browse for definitions, but it's hard to get an overall picture by just looking through every definition one by one. Cscope and SilentBob are two tools that can help you analyze unfamiliar source code.
I have used PCLinuxOS since version .8 and have always found it easy to use and aesthetically appealing. Being based on Mandriva might help PCLinuxOS' cause as Mandriva has been and continues to be a system new Linux users can migrate to with little to no learning curve.
