System Builders To Novell: We'll Give You A Listen

Filed under
SUSE

If packed demo rooms are any indication of interest in its latest Linux desktop, Novell has a willing audience.

The scrappy operating system company, which stormed the Linux and open-source scene with its buyout of SUSE Linux two years ago, Sunday delivered a sincere challenge to the XChange Tech Connect audience here in Las Vegas: Take a risk and offer your customers another choice in operating systems.

This is a detailed description about how to set up a SuSE 10.1 based server that offers all services needed by ISPs and hosters (web server (SSL-capable), mail server (with SMTP-AUTH and TLS!), DNS server, FTP server, MySQL server, POP3/IMAP, Quota, Firewall, etc.).

Squid site restrictions

Filed under
HowTos

In the office I needed a way to block some websites permanently and others outside of break times. After looking at some inline solutions I realised that I could easily do what was needed with squid alone. Here's how:

Bash HISTCONTROL

Filed under
HowTos

I happened to come across Linux Tips: take control of your bash_history. This explains that setting "export HISTCONTROL=ignoreboth" causes Bash not to store duplicate commands in history. Actually there's much more to this than that little post exlained.

The first three books every Linux user should read

Filed under
Linux

Anyone proficient with Linux had to climb the steep learning curve. Part of getting over the top for me was reading a hundred different Linux and Unix related books. From that list, three books stand out as the most useful and influential. I can't promise easy sledding; it will take some work, but mastering this material will demystify Linux and make you appreciate it more.

Hacking with Nat Friedman

Drupal 4.7: Next-generation CMS

Filed under
Drupal

Drupal is a content management system (CMS) built on the PHP and MySQL combination (detailed requirements here). I've been working with the latest version since its release at the beginning of this month. Drupal 4.7 is a significant upgrade that brings major short- and long-term benefits to users and distributors of the system. It brings Drupal back to the cutting edge of CMS development.

Interview with Miklós Vajna, Frugalware Linux

Filed under
Interviews

Frugalware Linux is one of those distributions that does not feature often in the news headlines. But those users who take the time give it more than just a passing glance are often surprised to find in Frugalware a clean, fast distribution. We have asked Miklós Vajna, the distribution's founder, a few questions about the history of the project and where it is heading.

Debian Etch: Solid, Crufty, Some Assembly Required

Filed under
Linux

Debian is the the quietest big Linux distro. I see hourly posts on Distrowatch, Slashdot and Digg about the latest builds of Ubuntu and SUSE, and even Mark Shuttleworth’s wearing of a KDE t-shirt is considered news. I presume that things are fine inside Debian and that no gnus is good gnus, but also I believe, as Oscar Wilde said: “What’s worse than being talked about is not being talked about.”

CLI Magic: Viewing pictures on the console with fbida

Filed under
HowTos

Fbida (previously known as fbi) is an image viewer for the Linux console. Some people -- console veterans included -- might find the idea of viewing pictures on the console a little bit silly; why not just use X Windows and a graphical viewer or even a photo editor? The answer to that question varies from "running X on my server is not an option, but I'd like to be able to view some pictures while I'm waiting for the compilation of a new kernel to finish" to "because I can." Pick your excuse and read on to find out more about fbida.

Grab and hoard

Filed under
OSS

This spirit of volunteerism is alive and well in the world of open source software. Thousands of people donate their time and expertise to the benefit of all. But not everyone is giving as much as they're getting. Large companies, those with the greatest wherewithal to help, are surprisingly minor players in the roll-up-your-sleeves work of open source development.

Aaron J. Seigo: free as in beer or free as in freedom?

OSS

to truly appreciate stallman's philosophies requires reading them and then really thinking about them. most people don't do much of that anymore. you also need a fairly broad understanding of the state of various aspects of "intellectual property" law and how industry interacts with it.

If you saw my review of Wizard's Kid-Safe Livecd and thought it sounded like a good idea, but had a few concerns, perhaps they are addressed in Version .20-beta.
