When it comes to bandwidth eaters, there's one kid on the block that will have you biting off more than you can chew. Its fun. Its addictive. Its open source. Its Democracy TV.
I recently set up Xen 3.0.3 on Debian etch using the great guide here from this site. However, if (like me) you use the binary Nvidia X.org driver rebooting into your new XenLinux kernel your X.org server will fail to start. If you read its error output, you will see that this is because it cannot find the nvidia kernel module. Here we'll show how to fix things.
One way to know that the open source market is maturing is to analyze how fast companies are able to get to significant revenues. By "significant" I mean $10M and on a sharp, upward ramp. When I started in the business of open source (2000, with Lineo), it was horribly difficult to pull in $1M in revenues, much less $10M. Now? The ink will still be dry on your VC term sheets when you cross that threshold. Really.
It's called "The Ultimate Weblog System," and if you can shear off some of the hyperbole in that you'll find that the quick-to-install Geeklog does provide what it claims: a Web portal with all the trimmings, and all of it working right "out of the box."
gSTM, the Gnome SSH Tunnel Manager, is a front-end for managing SSH-tunneled port redirects. It stores tunnel configurations in a simple XML format. The tunnels, with local and remote port redirections, can be created, deleted, modified, and individually started and stopped through one simple interface. It is useful for anyone wanting to securely access private services over an encrypted tunnel.
If you've used Perl longer than 15 minutes, you've no doubt seen (and probably typed) the extremely useful substitute operation, typically appearing as s/old/new/. Let's look at some of the things you may already know, and perhaps a few things that you don't know yet about this very common operation.
Ubuntu Studio, due in April, promises to put a full, completely open-source graphics package together for Linux. The OS and apps will all be bundled together for easy installation.
It is a theme popular in science fiction films where the romantic idealism of free information is part of a rebellion against the monopolists of information technology.
To be able to work with .ape audio files, you need to compile and install the “mac” program which isn’t available in the ubuntu repositories.
The recent merging of two leading open source groups, OSDL and FSG, seems like good news for Linux. However, out in the Linux community, flickers of doubt were heard. Skepticism. Anxiety. Uncharitable postings on message boards.
The KDE Project today announced the immediate availability of KDE 3.5.6, a maintenance release for the latest generation of the most advanced and powerful free desktop for GNU/Linux and other UNIXes.
Savage: The Battle for Newerth, created and released by S2Games in the Summer of 2003, is a unique FPS/RTS online game. It combines first and third person combat with RTS elements such as structures, AI workers, and a team commander. On a good online server up to 64 players can easily play without any lag.
It seems that Microsoft are working to “fast track” their OpenXML format to become a new European ISO/IEC standard. So what do we do? Well, we have until 5th Feb 2007 to make complaints.
Call it Red Hat's forward spin velocity regarding Linux management tools. With competition such as Oracle offering full Red Hat support on their own products, Red Hat is now expanding and improving its Linux management footprint.
In this multi-part series, DesktopLinux.com columnist and operating system curmudgeon Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols pits Microsoft's latest wares -- Vista -- against Linux's fair haired boy -- Ubuntu -- to see how the pinnacle of commercial desktop operating systems stacks up against the free, community-developed Linux upstart.

It’s that time of year — the time when every IT pundit worth his or her salt is required to publish a New Year’s list of predictions or resolutions. So, being Linux Magazine’s equivalent of Professor Marvel (from the 1939 film classic The Wizard of Oz), who has a talent for seeing the patently obvious, I’m here to take my shot.
I wonder if there is a survey that has information on how many different distros a typical Linux user has used over that last 5 years? Of course, I mean more than just an install trial where you experiment with a distro for a few days, then wipe or replace that distro.
For me, that number is a fairly conservative two. And one of those two distros is the (grown up) child of another.
Mustang Linux, a fork of Buffalo Linux and a newcomer to the "mini" Linux distribution field, achieved a v2.3.1 release earlier this month. The lightweight distro, which can run entirely from RAM, is based on a 2.6.16 kernel and offers a choice of desktops, the project team said.
I am happy to tell you about the 2nd UbuCon, an Ubuntu user and
developer event, to take place at Google’s New York City offices on
One big trend of this decade that has not been remarked-upon enough is how many closed source or proprietary products have adopted elements of the open source business model.
