This tutorial shows how to harden PHP5 with Suhosin on a CentOS 5.0 server. From the Suhosin project page: "Suhosin is an advanced protection system for PHP installations that was designed to protect servers and users from known and unknown flaws in PHP applications and the PHP core. Suhosin comes in two independent parts, that can be used separately or in combination.
techzone: I have set myself a target of 1 month without booting to windows. The day I installed PCLOS, I was so impressed that I decided to refrain myself from booting to Windows. However, I had to make a few changes to PCLOS to make it workable.
kernelTRAP: Nick Piggin used 'git bisect' to track a lmbench regression to the main CFS commit, leading to an interesting discussion between Nick and Ingo Molnar. Ultimately the regression was tracked down to the temporary configurability of the scheduler while it is tuned for optimal performance.
DPotD: Liquidsoap is a powerful audio stream generator designed to work with icecast as a source client. The special thing of Liquidsoap is that instead of building an ad-hoc solution for that single net-radio, it was developed as a flexible tool with which you can combine as you like the features that you want.
FreeSoftware mag: Backup, like security, is a well-worn mantra in the world of GNU/Linux—and even the most battle-hardened, street-wise user has, for whatever reason, thought about regular backups after disaster has already struck. It is an all too familiar story.
devnet: “I am pleased to announce the younger sibling site, PCLinuxOS CN catering for Chinese users of PCLinuxOS. It’s main purpose is to provide Chinese users of PCLinuxOS a place they can be comfortable with in posting questions and problems with PCLinuxOS, a home for PCLinuxOS Chinese experts to help out, and a launchpad to any Chinese-related PCLinuxOS projects."
blogbeebe: I've spent some pretty intensive work time on my M685 notebook over the last months. The M680 is the Pentium M-based Gateway on which I installed Suse Linux 10.0 (before it became openSuse). In the past few weeks I slowly began to investigate if the M680 was worth the effort of upgrading the Linux partition beyond Suse 10. The answer is absolutely yes.
Linux Online: In the fall of 2005, in my home state of Massachusetts, Peter Quinn, the CIO of the Commonwealth, endorsed a plan to require the state government to use the Open Document Format for storing government records. The big loser, of course, would be Microsoft and its monopoly. The behemoth from Redmond Washington didn't waste time reacting.
Linux App Finder: Now that I have a memory card installed in my BlackBerry Curve, it's time to load some music. Amarok is my player of choice so I decided to focus my efforts on syncing using it.
openSUSE 10.3 Alpha 7 was released a few days ago, little over two weeks since Alpha 6, and it's an exciting release for sure. We have new eye candy and it was working wonderfully here. The dvd delta iso was about a 650 MB download and it came in quite fast using the torrent. It emerged with no problems. So, from start to finish, here's my report.
dedoimedo.com: PCLinuxOS is another rising star in the Linux constellation. Based on Mandriva, PCLinuxOS aims to be a simple distribution that reaches to the masses, allowing Windows users to easily and painlessly convert.
FOSSwire: ISO image files are everywhere. When you download a new Linux distribution, you’ll probably be given one of these files which you then burn the contents of to disc. You aren’t just restricted to burning them, though, and it’s actually a really simple process to make your own ISO images.
hothardware.com: From desktops to notebooks, it seems like all the rage lately is the design and manufacturing of ultra-cheap computers. First we saw the OLPC and then Asus' new Eee PC made a serious splash. Now it seems Lenovo will enter the fray.
Penguin Pete: Xara Xtreme is a graphics drawing application which has been available on the Linux desktop for about a year now. But I just now got around to trying it. What can they possibly show me with a vector path that I haven't seen already?"
go2linux: F-Spot is a great software to manage your photos. You can import them directly from your camera, or from a directory. You can Browse thumbnails, Edith the photo, see it in Full screen or start a slide show, all from its panel buttons.
ubuntu-tutorials: A linux machine has a logging system which keeps track of what everything is doing. Anytime you authorize with sudo it gets logged. Anytime you (or someone else) connects via ssh it gets logged. This, of course, has a number of other valuable uses. In any event, here are a few quick steps to set it up.
linux.com: Black Hat USA 2007 was fast-paced, fun, and informative. It demonstrated that security is big business. The halls were lined with vendors, some new, some old, and the smell of money was everywhere. Still, I'm left thinking this year's show had a different tone to it than last year's.
polishlinux: I’d like to invite you to read the last of three articles from the “Dump Windows” saga of writings. Two previous articles (part I, part II) stirred up quite a controversy and a variety of opinions. With this article I’m hoping for calmer and more meritorious responses.
PCWorld: Microsoft Corp. clarified its plans to seek open-source certification for its shared-source licenses on Wednesday, saying it will submit for approval only the two licenses that allow source code to be used on any platform.

ITJungle: In March, server and software maker Sun Microsystems brought in a new set of executives to manage the technical and marketing aspects of its Solaris Unix variant. Ian Murdock, one of the co-creators of the Debian variant of Linux, was named chief operating platforms officer, and Marc Hamilton, a long-time executive in Sun's Systems group, was named vice president of Solaris marketing. The two sat down recently with me to talk about the future of Solaris and other operating systems.
