A few years ago, the odds of switching on a personal computer and seeing Windows 95 boot were staggering. Linux was a whisper on the wind back in those days, as the skill level required to successfully administer it (not to mention installing!) in vanishingly short supply.
I have a Toshiba laptop at home, I was running “Edgy Eft” (Ubuntu Linux 6.10) But one of the important things about it was its inability to connect to WPA-encrypted Wifi access points. I am giving the procedure that worked for me to enable wpa in my toshiba laptop.

Unless an application is included with your Linux distribution of choice, installing that application on Linux is a nightmare compared to Windows. Here’s an example. To install Sun’s Java Studio Creator on Windows, I just click on the .exe. In contrast, on Linux, I click on the .bin, which downloads the file and.. up pops a text editor showing me a /bin/sh script.
This is a detailed description about how to set up an OpenSuSE 10.2 based server that offers all services needed by ISPs and hosters (web server (SSL-capable), mail server (with SMTP-AUTH and TLS!), DNS server, FTP server, MySQL server, POP3/IMAP, Quota, Firewall, etc.).
The company quoted DistroWatch.com as counting second-place openSUSE getting more hits in the last 30 days, narrowing Ubuntu's first-place lead and widening the gap between SUSE and third-place Fedora. OpenSUSE reportedly has 30,000 registered members.
I’ve started a mini-campaign to spread openSuse in Pakistan, I’ll be ’shipping’
100 DVDs intially and over a ... If you are in Pakistan and are interested in
trying out openSuse 10.2, please mail your address to freesuse at phantomos.org.
This evening I've created a new klik recipe, for Opera 9.1. It makes the klik client fetch from Opera's download site their current weekly snapshot of the upcoming 9.1 release and transform it into a typical "1 application == 1 file == 1 click to download+run" klik bundle.
Yep that's right. Linux will always be better. Even the latest offering of windows vista still doesn't cut it against linux and the other *nix type operating systems. It (vista) is still a reaction and an attempt at catchup to the linux operating system. It is only due to corporate inertia and end user ignorance that it hasn't been relegated to the back benches that linux is sitting on now. This situation will not last long though.
All the packages that SUSE supplies are offered in RPM format. RPM now stands for the RPM Package Manager. Its original name was the Red Hat Package Manager, and it was developed originally by Red Hat, but it has been widely adopted by other distributions.
These days, lots of companies are stretching their hardware and energy dollars by consolidating print, file, DNS, and web servers on virtualisation platforms such as VMware. But not many companies boast of running their entire production infrastructure on virtual machines. An exception is Arvato Mobile.
The "Great Man" theory of history is usually attributed to the Scottish philosopher Thomas Carlyle, who wrote that "the history of the world is but the biography of great men." He believed that it is the few, the powerful and the famous who shape our collective destiny as a species. That theory took a serious beating this year.
The default shell on most Linux operating systems is called Bash. There are a couple of important hotkeys that you should get familiar with if you plan to spend a lot of time at the command line.
Good news for Dell Inspiron Users: Your notebook is completely supported in OpenSuse 10.2. In OpenSuse 10.2, I didnt have to do any special configuration at all to get my hardware running.
I talk quite a bit about Linux going "mainstream" in this blog. The mainstream thought on Mainstream Adoption is that anything "mainstream" is something that is familiar to the masses.
When I posted on what Gaël Duval told Graham Morrison about Ulteo Connected Desktop, he promptly reacted by saying that Ulteo Connected Desktop is «only a part of the Ulteo system.» So we have to sit and wait before judging. Now that Ulteo Sirius Alpha1 was released...
In the spring of 2006 Mandriva decided that one of it's founders needed to find a new career, in turn Gael Duval was put out of work. Not to be held down, Gael decided to create a new Linux distribution with his own vision. The results of that goal is Ulteo, of which the first Alpha was released on December 6th.
I ended my previous article (Linux on the Nokia 770 Internet Tablet) by saying that the release of the OS 2006 prepared the way for some serious VOIP work. The 770 can now make SIP-based VOIP phone calls and is more like what you'd expect from Nokia--a phone!
The tasks in this article are common ones that you may need to do when settingup your system and beginning your new life as the system administrator of your own Linux system.
The latest release of the SuSE Linux distribution was quietly made public about a week ago. Many feared for the distribution’s future with members of the Open Source community disgruntled by the Novell-Microsoft deal. Despite these fears, a friend of mine and I eagerly awaited the University of Stellenbosch’s mirror to get the DVD iso and downloaded it a day or two ago.
