Controversy followed the release of a Kurdish translation of Ubuntu in Turkey last week. The release was originally reported in Millyet, a Turkish national newspaper, on November 21. This first release of a Kurdish language operating system and software has caused a stir in Turkey, where, up until 1991, it was illegal even to speak Kurdish in public.
This guide describes how to generate and use a private/public key pair to log in to a remote system with SSH using PuTTY. PuTTY is an SSH client that is available for Windows and Linux (although it is more common on Windows systems). Using key-based SSH logins, you can disable the normal username/password login procedure which means that only people with a valid private/public key pair can log in. That way, there is no way for brute-force attacks to be successful, so your system is more secure.
The proposed GPL version 3 has suffered the slings and arrows of outraged Linux developers, and its anti-patent provisions give companies the twitches, but one prominent open-source project, the Samba Team, is ready to switch to the new license as soon as it's approved.
Discover the power of UNIX filters. In this tutorial, you'll learn about the grep family in depth, including the syntax of regular expressions in many UNIX utilities.

How many of us now use mobile drives such as USB thumb drives or larger capacity external drives? With the cost of media going down it is much more accessible to many of us. Now, the way that Ubuntu and Linux handle these by default may cause your drive to mount in a dynamic location each time you plug it in. This tutorial will outline how to make sure your USB drive or external hard drive mount at your specified location each time.

A TWELVE YEAR OLD mite has been arrested by South Carolina coppers because the lad opened up his giftmas present early. Ho Ho Ho.

Linux.com readers might know Kurt Seifried as the author of the Linux Administrators' Security Guide or proprietor of the popular security mailing list. In this interview, he gives his views on how security in Linux has been stacking up and where it's lacking, what users can do to secure their systems, and whether every admin needs to know much about security.
This article describes how to use DHCP to supply information about static routes to the clients on your network. You may want to do this if you have two or more local networks with routers between them. The DHCP software doesn't support this out-of-the-box, but it can be configured to do so without too much effort.
This world is increasingly defined not so much by the PC, as by the things we use when we are nowhere near a PC. The music player. The smart phone. The digital camera. GPS devices. And many, perhaps most, of these new devices can and do run Linux.
XPressLinux is designed to be easy to use and familiar for Windows users. It will install easily over an existing Windows system, allowing the user to access their existing programs & documents.
A great deal of the web is GNU/Linux based: most of it runs on LAMP servers, and some content is created with great tools such as the GIMP, Inkscape and a fancy notepad (or Vi, or Emacs—don’t start). Pen tablets are recognised and used, you have access to effects plug-ins, you can work on bitmaps or vectors (thanks Mr Pierre Bézier! Your name will remain in history). On the other hand, as soon as you want to have your work printed, it’s another matter.
The biggest reason for migrating to Linux is freedom, said Patrick Davila, co-host of an online Linux talk show. Linux is not owned by anyone and is the ultimate community project.
Version 0.5.3 of FreeCol, a free/open-source Colonization clone, has been released. The objective of the game is to colonize the New World.
A version of Vista for "business customers" (whatever that means) came out last week and along with it, we're getting a barrage of 'what's the matter with Linux on the desktop' commentary. The truth is that this 'always a bridesmaid but never a bride' routine is getting a bit old.
The volume of recent articles chronicling the successes of Linux may have led you to believe that it has a lot of momentum. This is true. The data in that article shows that Microsoft’s Windows servers’ revenue grew by 4.6% this year, Linux’s by 5.4%, and Unix’s declined by 1.7%. This means that Linux servers are still a more popular choice than Windows servers while Unix servers are becoming less and less popular.
This year is quickly coming to a close and we are here again with what has become a yearly ritual for Phoronix. Time and time again with each NVIDIA and ATI Linux driver release we thoroughly examine the change-log as well as dissecting the performance changes through our rigorous benchmarking process. Now for this article we are retesting all of the major display drivers released this year to see how they compare as a whole. Without further ado, we present the NVIDIA AYiR 2006!
