iTWire: Ok, not really nothing: it’ll cost you $9.99 for a domain name. But once you’ve got that, here’s how to build a dynamic and high-class online presence with free web hosting and the powerful open source blogging and content management system WordPress.
- openSUSE 10.3 Installation
- Ubuntu 7.10 - a computer for every room!
- OpenDocument Foundation is no more
- Ubuntu Gutsy fried my laptop!
- Ubuntu Desktop
news.opensuse.org: As part of their openSUSE release series, Novell Open Audio has talked to Jan-Christoph Bornschlegel and Stephan Kulow about KIWI, openSUSE’s operating system imaging solution. They talk about how you can create a customized distro.
liquidat: RPM Fusion for FedoraI realized that I missed an interesting development in the Fedora community: the rise of RPM Fusion, a merge of Livna, Freshrpms and Dribble.
tech.blorge.com: That $200 Everex gPC that Walmart has been advertising has proven to be quite the hit in its online store, currently being out of stock but can still be picked up at select brick and mortar locations.
paulsdigitalworld.blogspot: Now Compiz, Beryl is all over the place and there are massive discussions about it. But I have a few doubts about it. First of all, how do we benchmark an interface, especially its efficiency. I would like to propose a few speculations.
microsoft-watch.com: My Linux-Watch colleague Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols asks if Vista has "caught up with desktop Linux yet?" Yeah, I spit out my coffee, too.
It's Linux that has the catching up to do.
informationweek.com/blog: It's been ten years since Slashdot emerged from Rob Malda's personal Chips & Dip site. Also known by his Slashdot signature, Cmdr Taco, Malda had an interest in developments outside the computer department at the college and started posting newsy items to his personal site on early pieces of open source code, such as Linux, little known at the time.
penguin pete: This isn't really an Earth-shattering technique, but I've lucked out with it enough times to warrant a tutorial. It actually fits with the popular art-school methods for drawing a figure on paper, especially for drawing superhero-type figures.
byethost5.com/blog: A few weeks ago I installed PCLinuxOS for the first time and was impressed by the ease of stabilizing my internet connection and the speed of installation. Since that first day PCLinuxOS managed to surprise me several other times.
Also: PCLinuxOS — Linux for the masses
nosrednaekim.wordpress: With the release of a (somewhat) stable KDE4 Beta4, I have decided to switch from KDE3.5.8 to KDE4. I decided to compile from source following the excellent instructions on the Techbase.
Caitlyn Martin: A while back the good folks behind Freespire, the free version of Linspire, sent me a CD with version 2.0 for me to review. I knew going in that Freespire was “free as in free beer." For those of us who are not free software purists Freespire does have one compelling feature.
nixcraft: You can use logsave command to save the output of a command in a logfile. General syntax is as follows: logsave /path/to/logfile command-name argument(s)
the distrogue: Buried deep in the Linux man pages is a command called dd. You know how short commands like cat, ps, grep, rm or mv are really powerful? dd owns all of them. It copies data between block files- image files or device files.
kmandla.wordpress: People converge on Ubuntu (and the forums) from many different directions. Some are artists, some are technically-minded, and some are both. Tomosaur is a coder and musician who is usually found in the programming venues but, as you can see, has many other facets to his personality.
debianadmin.com: Many system administrators may be in the habit of re-booting their systems to make partition changes visible to the kernel. With Linux, this is not usually necessary. The partprobe command, from the parted package, informs the kernel about changes to partitions.
ReviewLinux.Com: Mandriva 2008 Powerpack is a commercial Linux product built by Mandriva. They provide the Linux Community with a free version but today I will take a look at Powerpack. Mandriva 2008 Powerpack is easy to install and configure and I hope you enjoy this quick look at this excellent Linux OS.
zerias.blogspot: A couple months back several vendors initiated a Vista to Xp crossgrade. Basically, if a customer ordered a computer and it came with Vista installed, the customer could get an Xp license instead. Novell claimed several months back in a video ad that Desktop Linux users accounted for upwards of 30,000,000 different people.
itwire: Linux desktop users looking for good financial software to run natively can forget about Quicken and Quickbooks. One glance at Intuit's website should be enough to convince even devout users a port to Linux desktops is a long way off and a Linux version of Quicken is not even on the radar. So what are the alternatives?
DPotD: Debfoster exists to tell you which packages are installed on your machine merely as dependencies for other packages. It then gives you the option of removing the package and its dependencies. Debfoster is most useful to keep your system very lean.
