In the first of a three-part series, we offer a comparative look at how firms in the U.S. and Canada decide which software model works for their enterprises.
The Andrew Mellon Foundation sponsors awards of $50,000 and $100,000 for "not-for-profit organizations for leadership in the collaborative development of open source software tools with particular application to higher education and not-for-profit activities."
If you want to create a document, spreadsheet, database or an audio-visual presentation then most people turn to the Microsoft Office suite of programs, and why not?
Yet another way to dress up your desktop is to let others do it for you. KDE comes with a modest collection of themes to start you off, and there are heaps more available on the web.
One of the first things any new user to Linux goes through is getting used to a brand new, vibrantly rich, but very alien OS experience. They tend to find that they now have something they didn't really have before. Choice.
When it comes to overclocking ATI Radeon graphics cards under Linux the only real option has been using rovclock. Rovclock is a Radeon overclocking utility written and developed by Sebastian Witt. This tool has been in development since 2005 but it took quite a while before the Radeon R300/R400 series was even supported.
2007 is an exciting year for Linux distros and it's getting near to crunch time, with PCLinuxOS 2007 nearing release, the latest and greatest Ubuntu (Feisty Fawn) due out in just a few weeks (April 19th apparently). Gentoo 2007 is due at *some* point this year and I also understand there's a new Mepis out soonish (although I'm unsure when)...
The Anomalies Network is a portal for all things paranormal. The site includes mirrors of remote FTP servers, Web archives, and a large discussion forum as part of what Anomalies.net founder Olav Phillips calls a "massive site" that runs on a classic LAMP stack.
When I was using OpenSUSE, I wrote that I liked the AppArmor application security. I wished for (K)Ubuntu to have that. My wish came true. It’s now part of Feisty.
According to Codeblog, AppArmor was uploaded to Feisty Universe. You have to issue the following commands in the terminal if you would like to install it.
sudo apt-get install apparmor-modules-source dpatch
Dell may have picked the perfect time to begin offering Linux-powered desktops. Why? Because, the next generation of Windows, Vista, has just sprung its first major security leak: the .ANI vulnerability.
It took me so long to setup fglrx driver for ATI Mobility X300 in my laptop, IBM Thinkpad T43. Actually, the ATI open source driver comes with Xorg 7.2 works very well except he open source driver does not support 3D acceleration for ATI Mobility X300. . There are so many howto but none of them worked for me.
IF OUR CALENDARS serve us right, April 2007 means twenty years have passed since the initial "Microsoft-IBM OS/2 1.0" announcement. But the story of OS/2 is not always told right.
I had installed the xorg-driver-fglrx (ATI’s fglrx driver) through Apt in my Kubuntu Feisty box and it was working fine after reconfiguring using dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg and without installing the linux-restricted-modules.
It isn’t official yet, but Compiz and Beryl are merging. For the last few weeks I have been following the mailing list discussions on this topic. A lot of the work has been started. It is sort of unofficially announced, so I feel now is as good a time as any to comment. First some back story:
For months now Radeon/FireGL owners have been wondering whether or not ATI Technologies / Advanced Micro Devices is actively working on AIGLX support for their official drivers or whether they will even support it with their binary fglrx drivers.
One of the major advantages of open source software development is the collaborative efforts between the members of any given project. But what happens when projects don't talk to each other? That's where a web-based collaboration service like Launchpad comes in.
First of all, how to play DVD and VCD using mplayer?
mplayer -fs dvd://1
The line shows the play dvd first track in fullscreen, further more if you wanna play in certain language?
mplayer -fs dvd://1 -alang de
The same way goes to vcd.
mplayer -fs vcd://1
Since last week, I have continued using synergy between my desktop and my laptop. I did get tired of running it manually from the command line every time I wanted to load it up. Because of this, I wrote some bash scripts. To start the server and client wasn't rocket science.
To start the synergy server, this is my bash script:
An object database like db4o simply has more to offer to object-oriented developers, in today's object-oriented world, than its relational cousins.
