Of hypocrisy and the FSF

Filed under
OSS

The Free Software Foundation acts as the benevolent force guiding the computer industry. It protects the users of software from the baddies, the list of which very often includes the names Microsoft, Apple, and TiVo. But what happens when the benevolent force transforms into something of a hypocrit?

Linux Overclocking Software

Filed under
Software

Since its inception, NVClock has evolved quite a bit. At this time there is not only the command-line interface but also GTK and Qt versions. The latest version of NVClock (v0.8 Beta 2) as well as the CVS version support overclocking the NV GPU core and video memory. Other features include card information, OpenGL/display settings, hardware monitoring of both fan speeds and die temperatures, fan speed control, pipeline modding (GeForce 6 series), and PCI id modding.

Transcode Video with Avidemux

Filed under
HowTos

You would think that find a good video encoding app would be easy. Solid command line tools like transcode, FFmpeg, and MEncoder do exist, but readily available graphical apps are hard to come by. Frustrated with the dedicated alternatives, I turned to Avidemux.

How To Compile A Kernel - The SuSE Way

Filed under
SUSE
HowTos

Each distribution has some specific tools to build a custom kernel from the sources. This article is about compiling a kernel on SuSE systems. It describes how to build a custom kernel using the latest unmodified kernel sources from www.kernel.org (vanilla kernel) so that you are independent from the kernels supplied by your distribution. It also shows how to patch the kernel sources if you need features that are not in there.

Understanding GRUB

Filed under
Linux

At some point Linux users may have to dabble with GRUB. I know this from personal experience when I trashed my Ubuntu install a few months ago. Many people may end up re-installing Ubuntu from scratch, but such drastic measures may not be necessary if you can master a few tips and tricks using GRUB.

It only took a few days, but already the Linux PS3 has enabled piracy. As the months continue, users are certain to find other ways to exploit Sony's new console.

Microsoft Linux ??

I have made a kind of research on this issue and here are some ideas on that. Recently Microsoft concluded an agreement with Novell. The agreement’s main aim is support of Linux based applications in the Windows environment. Why would Microsoft need Linux?

Hi-Tech Bigamy: Novell, Microsoft and Open Source

Filed under
OSS

Last month's announcement that Microsoft and Novell will cooperate to promote harmonious interconnection between the Windows and Linux operating systems used on servers has produced a spate of commentary, much of it along the lines of "what are they really up to?"

Linux in the glass house / Linux at the edge

Filed under
Linux

Recently, as noted here, the IBM T41 has been through a raft of distros. It/I has/have settled in on Fedora Core 6 for now, although OpenSUSE 10.2 is probably in it's near future. All part of a search for a perfect laptop distro that can run Evolution decently enough to connect to the corporate MS Exchange server and read my calendar therein. Even though it does not have the Evolution requirement (all Gmail needs is Firefox), my personal IBM X30 Linux laptop runs Ubuntu 6.10 at the moment.

Pardus Calisan 2007 RC Screenshots

Filed under
Linux

Previous to today's encounter with Pardus Calisan, we had never heard of this GNU/Linux distribution. The Pardus vision is to have a distribution in the vertical markets with differing versions, a sustainable organization with its own resources to run this operating system, and its developers making code contributions to Linux and the open-source society. With that said, we decided to take a look at this Turkish distribution. Those Screenshots.

Linux
Reviews

Pardus is a Turkish distribution that comes with KDE as the default desktop. It is however not just another pack of known open source apps. Pardus comes with its own, original GUI system installer, a package management system — PISI and system settings applet — TASMA, as well as a few additional goods. This review is based on my experience with Pardus Linux 2007 Beta 2, which can be downloaded from the official project’s FTP.
