Why should an operating system be important for a mobile phone? It shouldn't, but of course mobile phones are no longer simple voice communicators. The handset manufacturers' need to get different types of products quickly to market makes the flexibility of an operating system platform particularly valuable.
The Contra Costa County sheriff's search and rescue team searched for the body of 31-year-old Nina Reiser in a hilly area near Oakland on Saturday but wasn't able to find her, sheriff's spokesman Jimmy Lee said today.
There are quite a few tutorials on how to rip Shoutcast internet radio streams into MP3 files for Windows. Most of these make use of Winamp and a plugin called Streamripper. This is fine and dandy, but you are not a Windows user. So here is a way to do just as easily on Linux.
Security is an important issue in computing. Unfortunately, many computers allow a cracker to gain access to them and retrieve sensitive information, or just make life hard. This article will review the basics in general security and explain how to apply it to two Linux distributions--Ubuntu and Kubuntu.
Willy Tarreau replaced Marcelo Tosatti as the 2.4 stable Linux kernel maintainer in August of 2006. In response to a series of compilation fixes sent to the lkml by Mariusz Kozlowski, Willy suggested that all patches would be postponed until 2.4.34 is released.
Hong Kong based systems integrator Quataris has updated its all-in-one Pentium 4 based analog TV/PC design. The new Ottimo model, which features an innovative mechanical design, supports processors up to 2.8GHz, comes with 15-, 17-, or 19-inch screens, and is available pre-installed with SUSE Linux.
At the recent Firefox Summit, a group of people led by Chris Aillon (Red Hat), Robert O’Callahan (Novell), and myself met to discuss Firefox on the Linux desktop. Historically, there has been a great deal of tension between mozilla.org and the Linux distros.
Microsoft is looking to have its Windows operating system run on the One Laptop per Child (OLPC) notebook computers, OLPC chairman said at the Netevents conference in Hong Kong on Saturday.
"I've known Bill [Gates] his entire adult life. We talk, we meet one on one, we discuss this project," Negroponte said according to a transcript that was provided to vnunet.com.
Operating Systems: Linux x86, AMD64/EM64T, FreeBSD x86, Solaris x64/x86
Release Date: December 4, 2006
Bastille is a program for improving system security on Debian, Fedora, Gentoo, Mandriva, Red Hat Enterprise Linux, and SUSE. Unlike packet sniffers, anti-virus programs, and the majority of security programs available today, Bastille does not wait to react to possible security breaches, but prevents them by removing system vulnerabilities. With many distributions softening security in their default installations in the name of convenience, this approach is enough by itself to make Bastille an essential program.
This is a great way to extend the life of your older computers. In my case, I’ve installed it on a IBM T21 with 256MB of memory and a 30 GB hard drive. This tutorial assumes that the user has some linux and command line experience.
Getting help on issues related to open source projects isn't always like walking a straight line. Sure there are bug reports, mailing lists and discussion forums, but the challenge of actually getting specific local issues addressed is not a sure thing. That's the gap that OpenLogic is attempting to fill with its Expert Community program.
The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) finally published the Open Document Format (ODF) as an official standard last week after approving it as an international standard last May. The ODF file format is the XML-based open format for text, spreadsheet, database, and presentation files.
Well, if there are any Novell supporters left, here's something else to put in your pipe and smoke it. Novell is forking OpenOffice.org.
Sources said the OSDL—the sponsor of Linus Torvalds, the creator of the Linux kernel, and other key developers—on Dec. 4 laid off a sizable portion of its engineering staff in a move that the sources said left the OSDL's Beaverton, Ore., offices a "ghost town."
This is not yet a real newsletter, but this should be considered the first issue of the Ulteo Newsletter anyhow...
First of all, we'd like to express a big public thank you to everyone who has showed their support to Ulteo. This has been absolutely awesome!
So what has happened for all these months, and why aren't any Ulteo products available to the public?
Linux Magazine have put their overview of aKademy 2006 -- the KDE World Conference -- online from their December 2006 issue. They describe how aKademy helped plan the road to KDE 4, and also report on the widely-successful OpenDocument day. There is also a review of KAlarm available from the same issue. In other aKademy 2006 news, the videos of the presentations and talks are now being uploaded.
I set about building a PC dedicated to playing the HD movie clips and used the Demo PC as a guide. The minimum specification was based on the demo and works with video only but has trouble with audio. My OS is based on the SLAX Standard Edition v 220.127.116.11.
We're proud to announce a new release of the user manual for GIMP 2.2. This release features a lot of fixed and new content, in particular:
FlightGear is a multiplatform, GPLed flight simulator. It is sophisticated, realistic, and extensible. You can choose to fly more than 100 different aircraft, ranging from a Sopwith Camel to a UFO, you can take off and land from thousands of airports, and you can fly over virtually any terrain in the world. After 10 years of development, it has suddenly become a very hot item. How hot? You may have seen it used recently on prime time TV and not realized it. It was used in an episode of Fox TV's legal drama Justice to prove pilot error in the fatal crash of a private plane.
