There are several programs fulfilling the same or similar functions to be installed on a single system at the same time. For example, many systems have several text editors or different web browsers installed,Multimedia players,graphics editors at once. galternatives is graphical setup tool for the alternatives system.
There are a plethora of books hitting the market on the Ubuntu Linux distribution, and so far they've all been pretty good. But this one is at the head of the pack for getting started with your penguin experience... The Official Ubuntu Book by Benjamin Mako Hill, Jono Bacon, Corey Burger, Jonathan Jesse, and Ivan Krstic. It's a collaborative book writing effort that pays off on a number of levels.
This will be a series of posts called the Adventures in a New Ubuntu 6.10 Clean Install. I will document my entire experience in preparing for a re-installation of Ubuntu from 6.06.1 to Ubuntu 6.10 with a format.
Ubuntu 6.10, codename Edgy Eft, has been released on the 26th October 2006. This is the latest version of Ubuntu available and this tutorial will go through the installation process of Ubuntu Edgy Eft using the 6.10 release.
It is a new day. An important day, because on this morning the call that I have been waiting all of my life for has finally come. Yes, Mozilla wants my super powers!
rsync is a replacement for rcp (and scp) that has many more features. It uses the “rsync algorithm” which provides a very fast method for remote files into sync. It does this by sending just the differences in the files across the link, without requiring that both sets of files are present at one of the ends of the link beforehand. Here are some of the tools to manage rsync easily.
The switch to Ubuntu has had it’s ups and downs. But one annoyance I had was the un-styled ‘widgets’ in Firefox look like *ss. I found one person who customized it a little bit to work with Linux. I made a couple minor tweaks and repackaged it and am now sharing with all.
I first installed Fedora Core 6 in a Parallels Virtual Machine. That was fine, but I quickly realized that I wanted to investigate this more deeply, and especially wanted to look at the Xen integration. So, I created CD's and did the install on "Trusty Old Spare". Yeah.. well, yes, but.. things didn't go so well.

Apparently, people loves them some Firefox. Within 24 hours of the official launch on Tuesday, there were over 2 million people using Firefox 2, and we were seeing a peak rate of more than 30 downloads per second from our website.
This is a detailed description about how to set up a Ubuntu 6.10 (Edgy Eft) based server that offers all services needed by ISPs and hosters: Apache web server (SSL-capable), Postfix mail server with SMTP-AUTH and TLS, DNS server, FTP server, MySQL server, POP3/IMAP, Quota, Firewall, etc. This tutorial is written for the 32-bit version of Ubuntu Edgy Eft, but should apply to the 64-bit version with very little modifications as well.
Linux usage in the servers of large companies is continuing to rise. 73% of enterprise companies are running Linux on at least some of their servers. Just six months ago that figure was 67% and a year ago it was 65%, as per Evans Data Corp's latest Enterprise Development Issues Survey...
MyahOS was one of a growing number of distributions that come out of left field and are recommended to me by posters at LinuxForums. It's based on Slackware, which posters of LinuxForums will know isn't exactly my favorite distribution.
I hadn’t really given Ubuntu a fair shake the last time I looked at it. I decided to go another round with Ubuntu to see what it was all about. The initial act of downloading Ubuntu is easier than SUSE.
Try a search on quite a few blogs and you’ll find stories on switching to Linux, but somehow a few months or a year later you see the same person talking a lot about Windows-Software and Windows-Gadgets in a way that makes it clear, that at some point they switched back. So I the past months I was keen on seeing whether I got to that point where I just wanted to “get back to good old Windows” – the short answer: it never came.
The GoblinX Team is celebrating its second anniversary of life. The very first edition was released at October, 28 2004. During these twenty-four months we devoted our efforts to create a great liveCD distribution.
Well, apparently on the Internet, people have having trouble upgrading. I had the exact same problems and I’m going to describe steps to take to resolve them. Killing 2 birds with 1 stone, I’ll explain as well how to get you some Compiz eye-candy.
Tile will change the face of computing. Well, maybe. It could; Tile's a Tcl project, though, and Tcl doesn't operate the same as other languages or programs. So, while Tile might have an enormous affect on standard practices for development of graphical user interface (GUI) projects, there are no guarantees.
Taking the Linux Plunge – Commercial versus Community; which path is right for you and your hardwareSubmitted by srlinuxx on Saturday 28th of October 2006 05:58:12 AM Filed under
When Microsoft announced the end of support for Windows 98 and Millennium Edition on June 30th, there was a lot of talk of these users migrating over to Linux Desktops. According to OneStat.com, this is approximately 4% of the total PCs in the world. With Linux clocking in at only 0.4%, this means for every ten PCs, only one has Linux installed compared to these two Microsoft OS’s that are no longer supported. That leaves a lot of room for market share penetration that someone really could, and probably should for these users’ sake, take advantage of.
On Monday I posted Geekbench results for my Sun Ultra 20 M2 running Solaris and Windows. Afterwards, I received a number of requests asking how Linux performed on the same hardware.
Beyond displaying an extensive slate of existing Linux products, vendors at this week's InfoSecurity show pointed to possible future offerings ranging from a Linux client for a CD-ROM encryption system to a Linux-enabled all-in-one device for securing both physical access and video surveillance.
