Mary Jo Foley: So why go public with an alleged number of violations? Hilf told IDG News Service (IDGNS) in an interview late last week that the decision to share the numbers was motivated by a call for “more transparency.”
Software Reality: My story is a common one: I tried GNU/Linux a few years ago (and a few years before that, and even a few years before that), and each time grew excited by the possibilities. However I had real work to get done. So each time, I resolved with heavy heart that I would return to Linux later.
eWeek: At CERN, the PCs, CPU servers and disks are linked on a 1G-bps network provided by Hewlett-Packard ProCurve switches. CERN itself will contribute 10 percent of the total necessary processors for the job, including 3,500 PCs and the rest single- or dual-core processors all running a version of Linux called Scientific Linux CERN.
/home/liquidat: Some hardware firmware updates need a DOS environment for executing the flash tools. There are free DOS versions available to accomplish this task easily.
CyberCapital.Org: You can easily double the joy of using Firefox by knowing these essencial Firefox tips. Feel free to comment your Ff tips!
MDLog:/sysadmin: If you will run today yum (or up2date) on a Centos 4 system you will notice that there are many updated packages available. This is happening because Centos has released the 5th update of Centos-4 a few days ago and now this update is appearing on Centos mirrors.
Tux Love (PCWorld): I've become so used to wobbly windows now that whenever I use a regular machine I end up feeling cheated if I drag one and it doesn't display a certain sticky inertia. And if I feel positively deflated if I hit Ctrl + Alt + [any arrow key] and a glorious desktop cube doesn't flip me over to the next display face. What am I talking about?
Linux-Tip: NoMachine NX is a Terminal Server and Remote Access solution based on open source technologies. It makes it possible to run any graphical application on any operating system across any network connection as if you were sitting in front of your computer.
Kristian’s blog: One day I’m writing about all these changes I want to make in Beryl, and the next day Beryl is merging with the Compiz community. So whatever happened to my vision? Was it just talk? No, it wasn’t.
Phoronix: Today we have the SMC SMC2870W 802.11g Wireless Ethernet Bridge. This wireless bridge is capable of turning any wired networking device into a wireless node and can also act as an Internet Access Point along with a built-in 802.11b/g repeater. What category of righteousness does this product fall into? Well, for Linux users, the SMC bridge is falling down.
ComputerWorld: Palm's announcement earlier this month of the Palm OS Treo 755p provoked some questions regarding whether this would be the last Palm device to run the Palm Garnet OS, now that Palm is embracing Linux.
Matthew Garrett: As the number of people using Linux in mobile situations increases, the need to reduce power consumption also increases. While some of these power savings are obvious (like turning off hardware when it's not being used), others are more subtle. The combination of recent changes to the kernel and some small adjustments to existing code can have a significant effect on your battery life.
Linux Insider: We're now seeing Microsoft's true stripes. The performance of the products is a charade, an unfortunate cost of doing business in a once competitive market. The real means to profits and market share are really about legal positioning, but in essence necessitates a military posture. For what are laws and lawyers but a means to avoid violence and warfare in lieu of a day in court?
This tutorial provides step-by-step instructions on how to install VMware Server on a CentOS 5.0 desktop system. With VMware Server you can create and run guest operating systems (virtual machines) such as Linux, Windows, FreeBSD, etc. under a host operating system.
Debian Package of the Day: irage is a relatively new image viewing application which has been designed with speed in mind. It uses GTK+. The project was started in March, 2006 and has undergone rapid development since then.
the distrogue: One of the reasons why one would get Linux is to make use of old hardware. Windows Vista, with all the DRMs built in, is bloated beyond belief, especially with the shiny "Aero" effects. Anyways, people who do this had better check the system requirements before they pick a distribution.
DesktopLinux: Dell reportedly will release its new Ubuntu-powered computers on May 24. In his blog, LinuxQuestions.org founder Jeremy Garcia writes that a Dell staffer told him, "We will be launching a Linux based OS (Ubuntu) on the E520, 1505 and XPS 410 starting next Thursday, 5/24."
linux-blog.org: So you’ve just installed PCLinuxOS 2007 TR4 on your laptop and your wireless card is detected! Finally, a distro gets it right! However, you’re not too sure how to proceed next...do you manage the device through the PCLinuxOS Control Center? Do you start another program and work that way? Do you use KDE’s built in applet to monitor things? What’s next?
ariya.blogspot.com: QEMU version 0.9 is already out for some time, but AFAIK no official package is available for openSUSE Linux 10.2 yet. Here are some steps I did to have QEMU 0.9 with accelerator (kqemu) on SUSE 10.2. The motivation is simple: I'd like to have a faster system for filter development.
FOSSwire: If you’re trying to diagnose a misbehaving network or you’re just plain curious about what machines handle your requests to the internet, you might be interested in a tool called traceroute.
