nzherald: For someone whose job suddenly disappeared on him, Auckland software developer Vik Olliver is on a high. Apart from his employment misfortune, good things have been happening to Olliver, a stalwart of the open source software community in New Zealand.
thelinuxmovement.blogspot: Awn has lots of cool new hover effects being created so I will demonstrate them all here including the cpu monitor applet.
linux-blog.org: Just a quick tip on how to remove the root user from the PCLinuxOS login screen. This should work for most if not all KDE based distributions.
liquidat: The Fedora development branch got a set of new packages: NetworkManager was updated to a development snapshot of version 0.7, and KDE 4 base packages found their way into the repository.
cinematical.com: In a two-part interview with TV Guide, George Lucas talked some more about those two Star Wars TV series he currently has in the works.
CyberOrg: A dedicated teams of translators have been steadily getting all the compiz tools translated in their languages, recently Portuguese became the first team to complete 100% translation.
tech.blorge.com: Nicholas Negroponte has publicly expressed his disappointment at the lack of orders for his low-cost computer for poor children. The situation has become so dire that Negroponte will announce a "Give one, get one" promotion in the US and Canada.
realistanew.com: We’ve fixed the Intel driver so compiz+video works there unless you have a 965 (x3000 or x3100). If you have one of those compiz will refuse to start now. That is actually how we are dealing with most of the driver and/or hardware problems right now. We’re just blacklisting cards that have been known to have problems.
kernelTRAP: Jens Axboe detailed the changes in his linux-2.6-block.git tree that he plans to merge into the upcoming 2.6.24 kernel. Among the changes where the necessary updates to enable SG chaining which is used for large IO commands, "the goal of sg chaining is to allow support for very large sgtables, without requiring that they be allocated from one contigious piece of memory."
Also: Memset versus Memzero
mepis.org: Warren Woodford has decided to release a 5th Beta of SimplyMEPIS 7.0. The big change that resulted in another Beta release is the availability of OpenOffice 2.3.
linuxgamers: GameStop has posted the rundown of bonus content that'll be in the Unreal Tournament 3 Collector's Edition for $59.99 US ($10 more than the base package):
phoronix: Not only was this week marked by the Intel Developer Forum, but the final version of KateOS 3.6 was also released earlier in the week. KateOS 3.6 features a new LiveCD installer, hundreds of updates.
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.
