Today i have tried to upgrade my debian sarge (stable) to Etch(testing) and it went on very well without any problem and it is very simple to upgrade from debian sarge to debian etch.
Every now and then, you stumble across a software system that you never think about. Such is the case with a Linux-powered helicopter simulator being developed by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries. And no, you can't run it on your PlayStation 2.
MythTV is a Linux based, multimedia software that allows you to view & record TV shows to your hard drive in the manner of Tivo, Windows Media Center and Beyond TV. I installed the latest version to see if it was really good as it looked to be. Version 0.20 does feature some extensive new features and improvements.
I’m using Ubuntu as my main OS in both my desktop and laptop. I was getting the following error when I tried to login to Ubuntu couple of days back: our session lasted less than 10 seconds blah blah blah……
First, you tell me the YouTube’s Lonelygirl15 was an actor. Next, we have Microsoft talking about some kind of “open source” model and finally, Hewlett-Packard has board room spies. The next ting you will tell me is something really goofy; like Pluto isn’t a planet anymore.
Even though Mandriva 2007 Final is due out at about any time, RC2 was released Sunday and most of the news sites carried the news on Monday. I decided I'd go ahead and test rc2 since I'd not seen Mandriva since beta3. At that time things were really beginning to come together for Mandriva developers and some vast improvements were found. Were they able to maintain their upward curve or did this release fail to impress?
If you use Linux as your primary OS, then you already understand why it is so great. But, do you game on it? Ever try to convert your Windows friends to Linux? More times than not, the dreaded first question is, "Can I game on it?" If you think that there are no great games for Linux, think again! We are taking a look at 10 of some of the most popular Linux games... that just so happen to be completely free!
Gentoo is a Linux distribution unlike any other I have used, not just in terms of how it does things, but in the philosophy which drives its design. Gentoo doesn't ask what it can do to make things easier, it asks you exactly what it is that you want it to do, and then does precisely and only that. I gave Gentoo a good try, but I won't be sticking with it. Why not? I'm glad you asked.
Analysis: A project to fight low-quality software patents in the US could make the legal terrain more difficult for open source, according to FSF founder Richard Stallman
A growing number of renegade geeks are choosing to shun the full-blown GUI in favour of apps such as GNU screen, GNU Emacs and in rare instances a tiny window manager. Martin Howse checks into the world of the stripped down interface.
Microsoft may be setting up the European Union to take the rap for another delay in Windows Vista, a research firm said Monday.
I've been tracking the evolution of Microsoft FUD for nearly 10 years now, and wrote a short history of the subject a few months back. But even I was impressed when I came across Microsoft's latest effort in this department: it's truly a masterpiece of its kind.
When Microsoft announced the end of support for Windows 98 and Millennium Edition on June 30th, there was a lot of talk of these users migrating over to Linux Desktops. According to OneStat.com, this is approximately 4% of the total PCs in the world. With Linux clocking in at only 0.4%, this means for every ten PCs, only one has Linux installed.
Going on the advice of Pmouse, I downloaded Xara Extreme this morning. Slick is the word that comes to mind. The install on Ubuntu is not hard at all. First, you’ll want to download the package. Once you’ve gotten it on your computer, open up a terminal session.
The Alacarte menu editor is one of the major additions in GNOME 2.16. Already previously available in Ubuntu and other distributions, Alacarte adds a degree of customization that has been generally lacking since GNOME dropped its previous menu editor more than five years ago during the early 2.x releases.
We knew him as lilo. He was the founder of the Freenode IRC network, a place where many open source projects established a real-time meeting ground. Freenode is where we work, play, and share. It is where many a small idea has grown into a large project.
Robin Miller recently published a story on Newsforge about "Stan", as an example of a situation that demonstrates proprietary software is a danger to business continuity. I found this story interesting since I think Mr. Miller came close to correctly identifying a core issue.
With Linux making deeper inroads into corporate data centres, the recent LinuxWorld Conference & Expo in San Francisco gave attendees some first-hand information about how open source is maturing to handle more critical business workloads.
HP-hired investigators searching for the source of boardroom leaks allegedly tried to plant a trojan horse program on a CNET reporter's laptop, but apparently the attempt failed because the reporter was running Linux.
There are now several SUSE Linux books on the market, each with a slightly different angle. Some concentrate on SUSE itself without going into depth on general GNU/Linux topics, others are more for reference than cover-to-cover reading, and some are comprehensive behemoths that try to document every possible use and purpose for Novell's GNU/Linux distribution. O'Reilly's SUSE Linux definitely falls into the latter category.
