OK, you love Ubuntu, but after awhile, the same-old, same-old GRUB and boot splash screens become tedious and boring. Could it be your Ubuntu needs a little SUM-thing to spice it up? If you're up for a walk on the wild side, try StartUp Manager (SUM), a utility created by Glenn Van Loon that lets you change bootloader and splash screen settings in Ubuntu.
One of the world's leading advocates of the open source software movement, Brian Bahlendorf gave a talk at the Digital Freedom Expo at the University of the Western Cape on Thursday, entitled "Ten things you may not know about open source".
Behlendorf was a key developer of the Apache Web server, upon which more than half the world's websites run.
I got overwhelming e-mails asking me how to install properly ATI drivers under openSUSE 10.2. I directed them to different sites, including a reference to one of mine that I wrote for SUSE 10.1, but seems like they are still having problems. Instead of explaining to everyone on an individual basis I decided to make a fresh post.
The linux desktop with the wide choice of Window managers and the ample supply of eye candy is a constant source of envy for Windoze users.
Without images and colors, the linux desktop would not be of much interest to Windows people.
If you have questions about Linux or open source projects, real-time help is often just a keyboard away -- if you know where to look online. Forums, mailing lists, and Googling are all useful when you have questions, but if you really want answers fast, Internet Relay Chat (IRC) is the place to look. If you've never ventured into IRC, here's all you need to get started.
The GNOME desktop environment comes with a simple and single-minded CD burner application built into the Nautilus file manager (not dissimilar to what Microsoft bundles with Windows XP’s Windows Explorer and Vista’s Explorer) that can handle a lot of your file burning needs. But what do you do if you need more complex tasks done, like burning or ripping an ISO file, or creating an audio CD?
A protester calling for free computer software and open source programming crashed a speech Friday by Microsoft Corp. Chairman Bill Gates at one of China's top universities.
The University of Nevada Office of Information Technology has announced, with great fanfare, its decision to offer technical support for the Mozilla Firefox Internet browser. This week, the Student Computing Support Center on the second floor of the Student Union has been hosting an open house to promote Firefox.
The purists are forever crying out that the word Linux refers to the kernel only. True. However for the general public the word has come to mean a collection of programs making up an operating system in the same way an orchestra means a collection of musical instruments and musicians.
During my years as a Unix Systems Administrator and Quality Assurance Engineer, one of the most indispensable tools in my Unix tool box has been Perl. A Perl "power programmer" I am not, though almost daily I find new ways to incorporate simple (and sometimes not so simple) Perl logic into my work, which results in increased productivity and efficiency.
The Novell executive who architected an historic technology and intellectual property agreement with Microsoft has scolded rival Red Hat for not being innovative and warned Oracle's Linux play will fragment the company's operating system.
Quanta Computer's shipments of XO notebooks under the OLPC (One Laptop per Child) project may be delayed, again, to the fourth quarter instead of the third quarter due to a delay in designs of varied application scenarios for different emerging markets, according to an April 20 Chinese-language Commercial Times report.
This is just a note that a fairly new project is in the works at MyPCLinuxOS to offer PC Linux OS Gnome 2.18. I am only a tester and our team has not yet released an official test .iso featuring Gnome 2.18. Our Dev's will not be officially releasing anything until the system is as bug free as is possible - in line with the main PCLOS and Texstars philosophy.
Ok, so you know grep, awk and sed. You can ls and cd your way anywhere on your computer. You can even eject your cdrom by typing several letters instead of pressing one button. But here's a fresh*,new**, and perhaps even slightly humorous take on several of your all time favorites.
Nestled between Proprietary and Freedomberg, Opensville is a utopia. Everyone who lives in the adjacent cities spends their free time in Opensville. The parks are beautiful, the shopping is amazing, and the nights are pure Vegas. Sounds like a great place, huh?
Dell CEO Michael Dell is getting a Dell preloaded with Ubuntu, sure, but it doesn’t mean much, according to Canonical Ltd. head Mark Shuttleworth.
This aims to be the most comprehensive0 kernel comparison of the latest most popular Unix style kernel versus the latest most popular kernel. In Q2 2007, this means Linux 2.6.20 kernel versus Windows Vista kernel.
So, you've just installed Ubuntu 7.04, otherwise known as the "Feisty Fawn" release of everyone's favorite (for now) flavor of Linux. You booted the installation disc, looked around the test environment to discover that your hardware was working, and double-clicked the Install icon on the desktop.
Critical reception of Vista is cool, at best. Yet I know Microsoft didn’t set out to create a mediocre product. They have a lot of smart, passionate people who really want to create industry leading products. It is just that, on their flagship product, they haven’t.
