ubuntu tutorials: Today’s post is a quickie, and more along the lines of a “package of the day”, but I thought it would be interesting to share. The time command in Linux will offer you system resource summaries and total time taken to complete the job requested.
ruminations: The first and last line of defense is the use of common sanity. Unfortunately, there is no way to install that, not with #pkg-add-r comsanity or with #make install comsanity. It would be nice -from a sysadmin’s perspective or when you are the one in the family that everyone calls when there is a screwup.
trusted reviews: Leaked shots have finally appeared late in the week of Asus' heavily anticipated Linux based 'ultra mobile PC': the R3. Eagle-eyed snappers at Navigadget spotted it during an Adobe presentation for its AIR platform and we learnt the briefest of spec outlines.
techzone: There is a site where the driver writer luca has developed drivers for similar hardware. Initially that site offered the binaries only for Ubuntu Fiesty, for all other distributions, we had to request ( and possibly pay ) for the drivers.
This document describes how to set up Amanda (The Advanced Maryland Automatic Network Disk Archiver) on Debian Etch. For this tutorial I chose Ubuntu v7.04 as a backup-client.
FOSSwire: KDE users have for a long time had the jack-of-all-trades, all-singing-all-dancing Konqueror for file management. If you yearn for a change of file manager now, however, and you’re a fan of the left-right split in your file manager, you might just like Krusader.
Tip o' the Day: I like my digicam quite a lot; its a Canon Powershot A630. It doesn’t have all the bells and whistles possible, but it’s a nice little piece that takes decent photos. I’m also a distro hopper, and as such reinstall my operating system every once in a while to try something new. If your distro doesn’t support PTP cameras out of the box, you’ll want to install this package.
daveshields.wordpress: Here is all you need to know about package management on Linux. By package management I mean how you install, update, or remove a package: Apt-get it or for-get it!
Steve Carl (bmc blogs): If you are a Linux person, and you are living with MS created infrastructure, then one of the things you have to deal with is how to cross-calendar and email with the MS Windows users around you. And for MS Exchange, that is Evolution.
reviewlinux: On September 21 2007 Mandriva announced their release of Mandriva 2008 RC2. I think it was almost a 4 or 5 click process to get to the first install menu and thats why I say "Express" in my article title.
linux-watch: Linux users want two things for their hardware: drivers; and easy access to those drivers. The first is finally happening; and now, thanks to a Dell Linux project called DKMS (Dynamic Kernel Module Support), the other is on its way.
Bruce Byfield: My review of the latest release of Ubuntu was picked up by Slashdot this week, releasing a flood of criticism. Although the article praised Ubuntu, it was also one of the first to mention some of its shortcomings, so it probably provoked more reaction than the average review.
kernelTRAP: Ying Huang posted an updated version of his kexec based hiberation patches. Pavel Machek, one of the uswsusp maintainers, responsed favorably, suggesting, "seems like good enough for -mm to me."
lockergnome.com: Updating Ubuntu only to discover that the kernel update has brought you to a black screen - never fun. Once you manage to get back into your Ubuntu PC, you will be feeling a lot better. You have your important data backed up and of course, you can now take steps to put this other kernel out to pasture.

jucato.org: I just suddenly felt an urge to right about KDE after reading troy’s recent post (Troy, your marketing fever and ideas are contagious!!). I will probably be writing about something that has been written over and over again, but let me give it my own personal flavor. So…
gonz.wordpress: I’m currently posting this using Firefox 184.108.40.206 running in Ubuntu 7.04 Feisty Fawn Under Parallels Desktop 3 on my MacBook Pro 15-inch Intel Core Duo.
blogbeebe: I downloaded three ISOs; the Gnome and KDE Live CDs, and the binary DVD. I burned all three and tested three machines with the two live CDs.
polishlinux: I don’t really remember when and where, but I have read once about that GIMP isn’t suitable to create pseudo 3D graphics. Nothing more fallible. I will try to show you that it’s wrong.
