Using the policy of bad-news-first: Blender’s interface is just flat-out confusing. I’ve been double-teaming my learning with a copy of the No Starch Press’s Blender Book and some of the free video tutorials from the Blender site.
A few weeks ago, MEPIS released SimplyMEPIS 6.5. The latest version of the Ubuntu-based desktop distribution offers a number of interesting new features, including a 64-bit release and Beryl for 3-D desktop effects. After spending a fair amount of time with the release, I found it to be a worthy update to earlier versions of MEPIS.
I’ve had my eye on the Beryl project for some time now. Problem is, I’m a loyal Slackware user, and it’s a royal pain in the rear getting it to work on the platform. Beryl isn’t the only problem child, either. I’ve never been able to get Gcdmaster working, and the less said about DVD authoring, the better.
Linux creator Linus Torvalds announced the release of the 2.6.21 kernel, "if the goal for 2.6.20 was to be a stable release (and it was), the goal for 2.6.21 is to have just survived the big timer-related changes and some of the other surprises (just as an example: we were apparently unlucky enough to hit what looks like a previously unknown hardware errata in one of the ethernet drivers that got
I get asked, fairly often, why I'm down on Linux. I'm not - I'm like a guy with three kids: love all of them, but find myself spending more time with one than the other two - hey, I even have the guilt that goes with the analogy!
It's amazing how many people who have Microsoft Windows everywhere look flummoxed when asked whether Windows is their "standard" for desktop computing.
Even though we know that Linux is quite secure by default installation of nearly any distribution, if you want to be sure that it is secure enough there are applications and services available that will make your computer/system more secure and manageable.
Real Time Linux will be available to Red Hat (Quote) customers sooner than had been originally expected, but unlike many Red Hat innovations, the new Real Time capabilities will not show up first in Red Hat's Fedora community Linux distribution.
As you may remember from a previously written article at MadPenguin.org, I was intrigued by the idea of a group of likeminded individuals who are taking the necessary steps to get Linux (collectively speaking) sponsored in an effort to make sure that everyone watching the upcoming Indy 500 would be aware of an alternative to Windows and OS X.
Just a few short years ago, Mozilla's Firefox browser was a grassroots upstart, struggling for its share of the browser market. Today, it's a serious threat to the once-omnipotent Internet Explorer's throne. One of the reasons for Firefox's success is the ability to customize the browser through extensions.
The Linux distribution that took the world by storm, Ubuntu, is not only one of the most usable, but it has innovations of its own. One of the most distinguishable innovations in Ubuntu 7.04 (Feisty Fawn) is Upstart, a software package that, in all likelihood, will end up as the replacement for the venerable SysVinit and other Linux initialization systems.
This tutorial provides step-by-step instructions about how to install the free VMware Server (version 1.0.2) on a Debian Etch system. With VMware Server you can create and run guest operating systems (virtual machines) such as Linux, Windows, FreeBSD, etc. under a host operating system.
I was contacted by a guy who was wondering why I hadn’t done a review of Arch Linux 0.8 yet. Well, the simple reason is because I hadn’t gotten around to it! Finally, I have. Here’s my review of the 64-bit version of Arch Linux 0.8.
What is Arch Linux?
It’s a joy to be able to download and use unencumbered software. Partly because of price. There is so much software out there and you could easily spend hundreds and thousands of dollars each year on equivalent proprietary software.
The last days covered two news where some big companies cooperated with Open Source projects to improve their software. This is nothing special anymore in these days, but it is a pleasure every time when I see that the Open Source development model simply works.
Here’s the deal: I reinstall once, sometimes twice or even three times a week. Why? Well, that’s beside the point. Sometimes I break something, but sometimes I just feel like it. Never mind that. What I want to suggest is that, if you’re like me, you can save yourself a little bandwidth and a lot of time downloading if you take the time to copy your apt cache before you erase your drive.
I use these all day and every day. One of these tricks allows you to do a search quickly in Firefox. The other trick allows you to narrow searches down to a particular site.
The future of Reiser4 was raised on the lkml, with the filesystem's creator, Hans Reiser, awaiting his May 7th trial. Concerns that the filesystem wasn't being maintained were laid to rest when Andrew Morton stated, "the namesys engineers continue to maintain reiser4 and I continue to receive patches for it."
Today we talk with the author of the K3b Project, the well known application that lets you burn CDs/DVDs and that lets you rip music from CD audio and films from DVD Video. We are going to talk with Sebastian about his story: when he started using KDE, when he started to create K3b and to talk about his plans in KDE 4 with a new KDE 4 project.
