Our team at LinuxForce recently put together a Debian server with LVM on a software RAID5 volume. This has been possible through complex installation procedures in the past, but today the Debian Etch installer is capable of handling such an installation if you follow the proper steps, which I outline in this article.
For the average home computer user there is no need to install a complex package such as the Internet Software Consortium's BIND DNS or DHCP server, since there are far simpler lower resource tools to use, for example dnsmasq.
Sometimes something appears that makes you scratch your head so much that you fear that you may inflict a self-imposed scalping, such was the dandruff clearing delusion caused by this site: www.linuxpersonas.com.
A chess engine is the actual program against which you play the game. A chess engine can take a move as an input, and after analysis, generate a move of its own as an output. Chess engines for Linux are comparable in strength to commercial chess engines available for other platforms. Here's a look at the features of half a dozen of the most well-known chess engines for Linux.
Novell's annual user event, BrainShare, took place this week in Salt Lake City, Utah. President and CEO, Ron Hovsepian sat down with Linux Magazine's Bryan Richard to talk about patent protection, responding to customers, and competing with Red Hat.
One of my tasks this week was to setup a web server for some sites currently hosted on the tragedy of the grid.
Editing HDR images on Linux is not so easy: the current situation of HDR image editing on Linux is so so. Especially tone mapping is possible, but not easy: the libraries are available, but there was no GUI, let alone an easy to use and user friendly GUI
Let's break this thick glass once and for all. Patching free operating systems like GNU/Linux with proprietary pieces where Free Software is not mandatory for world domination. And it sure is not mandatory for basic functioning of the system anymore either, so you can't exactly use the "RMS used proprietary UNIX to build GNU" argument anymore. We have the complete Free OS. We have three of them.
We have been a fan of SabayonLinux for quite some time, so we could not pass up a chance to tinker with their heavily anticipated new version. In addition to updated software, 3.3 brings about a new color scheme. It's also touted as being more stable, so let's put it to the test.
Mozilla Corp. late yesterday updated the Firefox browser to patch a single security vulnerability and fix several bugs it unintentionally introduced in earlier versions.
Mozilla currently supports two branches of the open-source application, and the upgrades -- Firefox 184.108.40.206 and Firefox 220.127.116.11 -- are now available, according to the release notes posted on the company's Web site.
Perhaps administrators of other Unix systems would be easier to convert to the almost identical Linux offering. Indeed, the cost advantage when comparing Windows Server to Linux Server solutions is literally the price of the Microsoft code, since both run on identical hardware.
As you know, Windows XP works only in a graphical environment. Thus, when we connect to it remotely, we are condemned to use the GUI. This is called “remote desktop” and it works great… but only when you have a stable broadband connection to your remote machine.
Well, so far I've published a dozen articles about KDE 4 over the last 12 weeks. A lot of content has been covered, but there is rapid progress still being made on those topics. So, in no particular order, this week's issue deals with addenda and updates to the last 12 articles, so that you can see some of the rapid progress happening as KDE races forward.
I installed Ubuntu Feisty Fawn Herd 5 yesterday morning on an IBM T43 laptop. As I understand it, Herd 5 is basically the last alpha before the Feisty Fawn beta freeze. I wouldn't normally bother messing around with an alpha Linux distro, but I had two good reasons for trying it.
If Novell's chief executive has any regrets about slipping between the sheets with Microsoft, it's around Microsoft's push for IP protection.
Microsoft is frequently dinged for having insecure products, with security holes and vulnerabilities. But Symantec, no friend of Microsoft, has proven the opposite. When it comes to widely-used operating systems, Microsoft is doing better overall than anyone else.
We've seen plenty of crazy ways to keep your precious data safe. Some people burn a few tons of DVDs, others make a montly habit of swapping hard drives into a safe location. In today's How-To we'll show you how to automatically keep your data backed up from your computer with ssh and rsync. Feel that? That's our warm comfy safe-data blankie. Check it out.
Troubleshooting boot problems can be a very frustrating and challenging process. Sometimes their repair requires the Linux rescue environment, but what can be done if rescue media is not handy? If the system gets past BIOS and loads the GRUB boot loader, often there is much that can be done to get it up and running again.
Basic GRUB usage
There's Windows, there's the Mac and then there's Linux. An operating system built for reliability and security, Linux use and operation is growing in popularity because of its free access to software use and modification capabilities.
