FOR THE CONSUMER desktop/laptop market, Linux has been a non-starter. Sure, you can find many many different flavours of Linux available online, but you can't go to the local Big Box store and get a PC loaded with Linux on it.
When something goes wrong with your Linux-based system, you can try to diagnose it yourself with the many troubleshooting tools bundled with the operating system. Knowing about these tools, and how to effectively use them, can help you overcome many of the common problems on your system. Here's a list of some of the weapons in your arsenal against Linux problems.
The writer of the blogging engine called Forest Blog spotted the pirate hunting outfit MPAA was using his work and had completely violated his linkware licence.
If you've installed a Debian package upon a machine, but lost the binary archive, then it is difficult to copy that package to another machine. Thankfully is a simple solution for recreating a Debian package from an installed system.
Red Hat Inc’s chief executive officer has said the company is encouraging customers to adopt Microsoft Corp’s offer of support vouchers for Novell’s Inc’s rival Linux operating system in order to get the issue over with.
Okay hold onto your hats, our final list is now ready: here are the All-Time Top 150 i-Technology Heroes according to SYS-CON's globe-girdling network of editors, columnists, commentators, and (above all) readers. The list includes Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, and Linus Torvalds.
Sony has been telling us for a while now that the PlayStation 3 is more than a game console, it is a computer. They tried this with the PS2 as well, when they released the Linux Kit for PS2, however, they built the PS3 with Linux in mind.
Is Red Hat doing enough to reassure its customers that it remains focused on what it does and can stay ahead of its growing number of competitors?
Sabayon comes in 3 flavors: X86, X86_64, and Mini. The first two are DVD images, the last is one CD. I chose the last option since I have limited bandwidth. From what I gather of their website, Sabayon is based on Gentoo but offers a compiling-free install. This piqued my interest.
The current stable version of Debian GNU/Linux has been updated to include all recent security and bug-fix patches. This update mainly adds corrections for security problems to the stable release, along with a few adjustment to serious problems.
Fedora, formerly known as Red Hat Linux, is a popular distribution that, unlike other distributions, had two major code bases, but now that has changed. Starting with FC 7, core and extras are now merged so it would be the best of both worlds into this latest distribution.
Microsoft and Mozilla are each working to tackle recently disclosed security flaws in the Internet Explorer and Firefox Web browsers.
I recently found a fun feature available within the sudo program that will insult you when you do the wrong thing such as enter your password incorrectly. I’ll tell you how you can activate the feature for a few laughs and also give a few examples of what insults you might get.
The nullfs filesystem is a passthrough filesystem. When nullfs is mounted it - literally copies the filesystem transaction. If a file is deleted, nullfs simply transmits the information down to the lower filesystem. Conversely, if a file is created, it does the same and tacks on all of the data needed for the filesystem underneath. Why is that a good thing? Where did nullfs come from and why?. What else, if anything, is it good for?
I’ve been a long time Linux user, recently someone asked me what were the advantages of Linux compared to Windows Vista, to be honest I didn’t know the answer primarily because I had never used Windows Vista. So I bought myself a copy of Windows Vista Ultimate and setup a machine with it.
Since last month's general availability of Microsoft Windows Vista, NVIDIA has introduced the Forceware 100.XX series. The quality of this driver has been very debatable. However, the Linux, FreeBSD, and Solaris drivers remain in the 1.0-9XXX series. In this article, we are shedding the first light on what will likely become the NVIDIA 2.0-XXXX display driver for Linux, Solaris, and FreeBSD.
I frequently include the Beryl project ( which is derived from Compiz) in my demos to show what is possible with the technology. However, I don’t use Beryl for my day-to-day window manager. David Reveman recently posted some new info on Compiz on a freedesktop.org mailing list. Some of the information is lower-level technical planning stuff, but it does show some of the things he and the compiz community are working on.
You're gonna read a lot of bad reviews aimed at "Ghost Rider"; go check RottenTomatoes to get your fill. Every one of them miss the point. This is the kind of movie you go to see for the cheese. It's an adaptation of a comic book with lots of CGI. So sit back, munch the pop corn, and just go with the Rider. It was a great way to spend a few hours Saturday.
A spat between Linux creator Linus Torvalds and the GNOME desktop developers has been reignited and, if anything, it shows the different mindset that exists between the pure geek and the crowd who want to see commercial success.
This tutorial describes how to set up an audio streaming server with Icecast2. In order that Icecast2 can stream audio to listeners we install Ices2. Ices2 is a program that sends audio data to an Icecast2 server to broadcast to clients. Ices2 can either read audio data from disk (Ogg Vorbis files), or sample live audio from a sound card and encode it on the fly. In this article we will let Ices2 read .ogg files from the local hard disk.
