For many IT professionals it makes sense to work with both Windows XP and Linux.
On the other hand, Linux is stable and the Linux community provides you with free high-quality Open Source software.
They waited in IRC. They waited by their inboxes. They waited for Google to accept them.
And nearly 1,800 applicants of Google's Summer of Code 2006 finally got word their projects were accepted. Then came the rude awakening.
A surge in IT spending among small and medium-sized businesses is raising hopes among freeware advocates that a flurry of new open source products will spur the corporate use of Linux.
SecurityFocus has a vulnerability advisory about an issue with the GNU strings command and a potential Denial of Service attack. If a file contains certain character strings, the string command will crash due to a failure to properly handle unexpected user-supplied input.
The problem with writing and editing on a computer, versus having words on paper, is that it's usually hard to compare text from different sections of a document when they don't fit on the screen together. One way to do it is to use Vim's viewports feature. Another is to "fold" the text. Using Vim's folding features, you can tuck away portions of a file's text so that they're out of sight until you want to work with them again. Here's how.
Cache is not shared between widgets and pages opened from widgets.
Fixed Bittorrent downloads on Unix.
Fixed crash that could occur when exiting pages with Flash 8.
Fixed IPv6 on FreeBSD.
Fixed session handling for widgets.
In the early morning hours of May 3, a dramatic piece of news out of Geneva began caroming through the online world: At long last, Microsoft's lock on the $9 billion office-application business was facing a challenge.
My current favorite desktop Linux is OpenSUSE 10.1. I can say all kinds of good things about it, except when it comes to the package manager. Unfortunately, the package manager, which the administration tool YaST uses for adding new programs and updating old ones, currently has serious problems.
The Cyber Cynic says Novell's last free, community Linux, OpenSUSE 10.1 is a real winner. It has great applications, a great 3-D desktop, and ... a great big pain of an update and patching problem. Listen Here.
There was a very strong distinction between PCs (which acted as “clients”) and servers. The PCs served would request a page; servers would display pages; PCs would render them. Something today has changed: people are using GNU/Linux and Mac OS, and therefore have fully featured servers hidden behind all the pretty icons they are used to.
Everyone is aware of my love for SUSE. First Linux distro, etc., etc., etc. SUSE 10.0 has been a solid, hardworking distribution since its release and truthfully, I hated to destroy something that had worked so flawlessly. After some thought, I decided to clean up an old machine...AMD 950 with about 500MB of RAM and see how this new release performed. I wasn't disappointed!
Recently, when I was in the process of installing and using JavE - an ASCII art editor, each time I wanted to run the editor, I had to open up a terminal, navigate to the directory containing the JavE binary and then execute the command. I started wondering if it was possible to start the editor by just double clicking on the jar file.
What does Exploit means ? What does Buffer Overflows means ? Conclusion: We need to write more secure code !
A customer had a particular shared folder setup so that only he had access to it. A change in business practice required giving two other people read/write access to files in that directory. The customer had forgotten that it had originally been restricted to only his user name, so he couldn't write to the necessary files.
If you've noticed the lack of reviews and slower than usual performance of tuxmachines, there is a good reason. I'm working on an off-site hosting vps in hopes of moving tuxmachines to a faster server and/or larger pipe.
Despite its world-saving image, open source software has not made much real revolution. But Becky Hogge finds hope in new software "for human beings", designed to bridge the digital divide.
