One default feature of the Bash shell is to record a history of all the commands entered by a user in a log file called .bash_history, found in the user's home directory. For many users, it is useful to retrieve the previously executed commands, usually to save the effort of re-typing them. So why might we want to limit or disable this Bash command history?
Apple Computers originally developed a Truetype font in 1980. Later in 1991 Microsoft introduced the same to Windows operating system. These fonts enhance your web browsing experience and some software such as Macromedia Flash player only works best with Truetype / FreeType fonts under Linux desktop.
The little program that could, dd, has been around for several decades. It can do a lot of stuff but today we’re going to use it to copy a cd or dvd.
While activist group Defective By Design is calling for an international day of action against digital rights management, the NZ government defends its DRM policy.
The fact that VMware's first ever product, VMware Workstation, was based on Linux has meant that the company has always been very Linux-friendly. In fact, many argue that VMware's re-invention of the virtualisation market -- it was started by IBM in the mid-1960s when the technology starred in Big Blue's 704 mainframe -- is a major factor in Linux' popularity right now. But for how much longer can this relationship last?
Darl McBride, president and chief executive officer of Lindon-based SCO, acknowledged during a Wednesday conference call that the ongoing IBM lawsuit has been costly in dollars, time and hampering the rollout of new technology. Litigation costs in the most recent quarter alone totaled $2.3 million, although that's lower than $3 million in the year-earlier quarter and $3.8 million in the previous quarter.
Save this script and make it executable. Leave it running overnight. Lather, rinse, repeat. Oh, nono, don’t do that — the script will take care of the lather, rinse and repeat for you.
Geotagging is the association of geographic location information with an object. A geotag comprises three pieces of information: a name and longitude and latitude values. Once files are geotagged, they can be indexed and searched based on the geographic information they contain. Here's how you can tag your photos, documents and other files so you can search for place-related information on your PC using Google Earth.
Mozilla has hired a former Microsoft security strategist to help lock down its open-source products against online attacks.
With GNOME 2.16.0 shipping today, the nightly LiveCD images of Ubuntu have been updated to this new stable version of GNOME. Curious to see what Ubuntu Edgy Eft looks like with GNOME 2.16.0? We have plenty of images to share today.
Enterprise Linux customers typically pick from just two options. Although HP’s decision to support Debian could widen the playing field, the choice really comes down to Novell and Red Hat. It’s worth comparing the two in terms of product offerings and overall style.
A Chinese company hopes to manufacture a low-cost PC that it will sell to schools and local governments starting in October. The PC will include a locally-designed Godson CPU running at 800MHz to 1GHz, with 256Mbytes of DDR DRAM, a 40-60Gbyte hard drive and will run on Linux.
It's 2007, and you want to upgrade all your PCs' operating systems after the infamous March 2007 XP Meltdown. You know, the virus attack that actually melted computers running XP, but couldn't touch machines running any other OS? Never heard of it? Well, play along with me, OK?
At first sight (and practice will confirm it), you can choose either of the books without being wrong. They're both targeted to the beginner to intermediate user who wants no know more about Fedora, RHEL or CentOS, in an accessible language, a practical presentation -- and having a book is rather handy at times, as you don't need an Internet connection to read anything.
Many KDE users tend to take the Konqueror Web browser for granted, but that's a mistake. Konqueror may not be able to replace Firefox as a Web browser for every site, but it does a lot more than just simple browsing.
If you look up in your taskbar, the one on the top of your monitor, you’ll see Applications, Places and System. We’re going to look at System today and see a few bits of what’s in there that can be useful to us.
