element14: MySpace is a popular social networking web site and one of the most visited sites in the world. In May of 2006, MySpace? released their own proprietary instant messaging program, MySpaceIM. The official client is in beta but only runs on Windows.
zdnet blogs: The OpenBSD team has won an award for the most spectacular mishandling of a critical security vulnerability. Here’s why:
Arun's Blog: Startforce is a web based operating system. I wanted to give it a try. I clicked on the new user and entered the username and password. Once I entered those information I was greeted with a desktop similar to Windows XP or one of the Linux OS.
linux.com: *nix-style is a GNOME graphical interface for configuration options in your system or current user account. It makes no attempt to be comprehensive, nor does it focus on options that are available from the desktop menus or GNOME system utilities. Instead, it concentrates on lesser-known configuration options, such as customizing the bash prompt or suppressing the initial splash screen in GNOME.
latenightpc.com: I’ve had my Asterisk PBX offline for a while now for no good reason, so I decided I’d upgrade and put the latest Asterisk on my new machine. Today I want to revisit some of the work I did getting Asterisk 1.2 working and see what I have to do to get Asterisk 1.4 running. It’s apparently not that different.
computerworld: In the race to be the first "iPhone killer," the most unlikely but perhaps most intriguing candidate is based on a new Linux platform with the peculiar name OpenMoko.
kernelTRAP: "Do you pine for the nice days of minix-1.1, when men were men and wrote their own device drivers?" began the October 5th, 1991 announcement for Linux kernel version 0.02 on the comp.os.minix newsgroup. In the release notes, Linus Torvalds continued, "as I mentioned a month(?) ago, I'm working on a free version of a minix-lookalike for AT-386 computers. It has finally reached the stage where it's even usable (though may not be depending on what you want), and I am willing to put out the sources for wider distribution."
linux devcenter: Linux has come a long way in the last 10 years. At that time, if you were looking through the main audio and music applications on other operating systems, you would have struggled to find comparable, fully developed, apps on Linux. Nowadays, while no one would say the job was done, they could point to an assortment of high-quality applications that are getting real jobs done.
One of the first questions Linux users often ask, after installing their distro of choice, is “How do I install Nvidia drivers?” Although the process has been hit and miss in the past, one of the best solutions that I have come across is Envy for the Ubuntu distribution.
Packt: Donations play a crucial role in supporting Free and Open Source Software projects. This month, Packt columnist and open source enthusiast Mayank Sharma explores the economics behind open source projects, what they do with their donations and how crucial they can be to their future.
techpersona: For the experienced Linux users, fixing Ubuntu’s Achilles heel is not a problem but to the new users, this can be a problem because of the lack of experience and knowledge of the OS. I am talking about the lack of automatic support/driver installation for Dual Video cards.
iTWire: It’s inevitable: if your computer is Internet-connected you will have people coming a-knockin’. Fortunately Linux users are more savvy than to think any keep-alive ping or other piece of Internet flotsam is a hack attempt. Even so, it’s simply a matter of time before your router’s lights flash heavily and /var/log/auth.log fills with chilling messages.
The KDE Community is happy to announce the immediate availability of the first Beta release for KDE 4.0. This release marks the beginning of the integration process which will bring the powerful new technologies included in the now frozen KDE 4 libraries to the applications.
ubuntu geek: Currently Feisty Fawn users (7.04) using the generic kernel (which is 2.6.20-16-generic). This tutorial will explain howto upgrade you to kernel version 2.6.22-9-generic.
beranger: How come that various people are getting so fond of GPLv3, while usually people fail to agree on delicate issues (pro-life vs. pro-choice; social policies; more guns vs. more gun control; etc.)?
This article shows how you can install and use POPFile to classify incoming emails on an Ubuntu Feisty Fawn desktop. It is a POP3 proxy that fetches your mails from your mail server, classifies them and passes them on to your email client.
linux.com: Two of the most popular BitTorrent clients for Linux are Azureus and KTorrent. If you're looking for a robust, fast, simple, and powerful BitTorrent client, you will probably go with KTorrent. If you want a Java-based client that runs on every platform and allows you to configure every detail for BitTorrent transfer, consider Azureus.
Debian Administration: There are times when you have a machine, or two, which is short of disk space and yet you have spare capacity elsewhere upon your LAN. For these times using a Network Block Device could come in handy. This allows you literally export files as block devices remotely.
