WE SPOKE to Novell European president Tom Francese in the wake of the Microsoft pact to get some reaction on the deal. 'This is pressure on Red Hat'
The typical UNIX administrator has a key range of utilities, tricks, and systems he or she uses regularly to aid in the process of administration. Configure your swap space (including adding space in an emergency) to get the most out of your system. In this article, you'll learn how to monitor your system to determine an effective swap space figure as well as examine methods for using swap space for more than just secondary random access memory (RAM).
Q: Did Red Hat consider a similar patent deal with Microsoft?
A: An innovation tax is unthinkable. Free and open source software provide the necessary environment for true innovation. Innovation without fear or threat. Activities that isolate communities or limit upstream adoption will inevitably stifle innovation.
The basic concepts and goals of SELinux are fairly simple. This sample chapter examines the security concepts of SELinux and the motivations behind them. It focuses on the primary access control feature of SELinux, type enforcement (TE), and also briefly discusses the optional multilevel security mechanism.
Linux has become a hot property for more and more solution providers fed up with poor, even nonexistent, margins in the overcrowded world of Microsoft-related reselling. The lure of higher profits and the benefits of dealing with an open-source platform make Linux attractive from a business and technology perspective.
Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer said his company is open to talking to other Linux distributors about reaching mutual patent coverage deals similar to the agreement signed Nov. 2 with Novell. The distributors of other versions of Linux cannot assure their customers that Microsoft won't sue for patent infringement.
I've collected for you a representative sampling of reactions to the unfortunate Novell-MS alliance. It's Microsoft being Microsoft. It isn't waving any white flags.
Microsoft Corp.'s support agreement with Novell Inc. dominated the early session, with investors trying to sort out the winners and losers of the industry-shaking deal.
The popular free Linux computer operating system being co-opted by corporate technology titans was born of a Finnish university student and a group devoted to no-cost software.
Free software and DRM-free music met this week when the Amarok music player added a built-in "iTunes-like" music store in its latest release -- making it the first open source music application to include such a service.
Neverwinter Nights was one of the most popular games to be on the Mac platform. But unfortunately, the latest edition was built with proprietary standards (C# and DirectX) making it so that it only runs on Windows and not Linux or Mac. So a petition has started to get gamers to boycott the makers until they release the game for th platforms that made it great.
One of the biggest hurdles for the already popular distribution Ubuntu in gaining still more popularity all across the world, is the limited number of applications shipped as part of the distribution media. This works well only for those users who either don’t require anything more than the installed default applications or those who have a fast Internet connection.
Explore2fs is a GUI explorer tool for accessing ext2 and ext3 filesystems. It runs under all versions of Windows and can read almost any ext2 and ext3 filesystem.
Here in the UK, there is a saying that was a quote from Virgil that was often quoted in the original Latin, “Timeo Danaos et dona ferentis”, which is usually mistranslated into the phrase “Beware of Greeks bearing gifts”. However, it is that phrase, or both of them in fact, that pass through my mind on seeing recent Microsoft and other corporate closed software companies’ press releases recently. There are three that come to mind that have occurred recently...
If you're running a popular website you'll most likely notice that some clients are less well-behaved than others. Greedy clients can do anything from make numerous requests, to attempting to spider your entire site. One simple way of preventing these clients from slowing down your server is with the mod_bwshare module for Apache2.
As long as I work on the Fedora Project, Fedora will never compromise on the essential liberties of FOSS nor will it betray the community. But the price of liberty is not free, nor is it comfortable. And unfortunately, some "leaders" of our community are willing to compromise liberty for short-term convenience. I am disgusted by people like this, and by Novell's betrayal of the community today.
"Excuse me while I go throw up," wrote Pamela Jones, the editor of the Groklaw.net blog. "This is actually really bad news," said Bruce Perens, a well-known Linux advocate. "I prefer to be an optimist, and will happily take the option that not everybody needs to be enemies," said Linus Torvalds.
As Ubuntu Edgy has not long been released I thought I would see how it runs on parallels desktop for mac. I downloaded the standard .iso and followed pretty much the same instructions as when I installed Ubuntu Dapper.
And here, once again, flying in the face of common sense, of good taste, comes the legendary Weekly Debian Nudes. Despite the fact that the genuine Debian Weekly News has been published this week, here is the third issue of the famous Weekly Debian Nudes.
