Hitting the burner this week is Ubuntu 6.10 (Edgy Eft) Knot 2. Some of the changes beyond Ubuntu Edgy Eft Knot 1 is X.Org 7.1.1, GNOME 2.16.0 RC1, new boot splash screen, F-Spot, Firefox 2.0 Bon Echo, and much more. As usual we have provided a few visuals from this Ubuntu development release.
Have you heard of Windows and Mac operating systems? Almost everyone who uses a computer will say "Yes." However, not so many are familiar with an operating system called Linux. Linux can be seen as an alternative and an answer to the current locked source code software trend that overwhelmingly controls the market. This is why Linux has built cult-like following among enthusiasts and believers in the open source movement.
Timothy Miller is the founder of the Open Graphics Project. In 1999, he started learning chip design on the job, because the kinds of graphics chips that his employer needed couldn't be bought from 3rd parties anymore. He has been designing graphics chips and graphics-related chips ever since.
Don’t throw that old PC away just yet, it still has some life in it yet. No matter how bad your old PC is it can always be used as a router, and your old router as a switch. All you need is two nic cards for it.
I am sure anyone who has anything to do with computers have heard of a system administrator. But not many would be aware of a content management administrator or more specifically a Drupal administrator.
10 years ago, on October 14th 1996, Matthias Ettrich announced a project to create a complete and consistent GUI for the prospering Linux operating system. The project grew and matured and now it is 2006 and KDE is one of the largest Free Software projects.
After a year from 1.0.4, we are happy to announce a new release. It comes with a lot of changes, following release of efltk to version 2.0.6.
In one respect, Gentoo Linux 2006.1 is the same as it's always been, except with newer software on the installation media. Beginning with version 2006.0, though, a graphical environment was added to the live CD along with an installation program that rarely worked properly. The good news is, the installer works reasonably well in Gentoo 2006.1; the bad news is, it's still quicker and easier to install by hand via the command line.
At first glance Ubuntu appears to be the answer to the prayers of Linux evangelists worldwide. It has a great website, great marketing, an enigmatic philanthropist leader, a devoted community and a philosophy which seems to mirror that of the wider free software community in stark contrast to its enterprise counterparts. With such a stellar resume one has to ask the question, is Ubuntu too good to be true?
In an interview with Croteam's Vedran Skrnjug we've had the opportunity to get some information about the upcoming linux release of Serious Sam 2. The interview gives some background information about the motivation for the port and some details about the expected game.
Ubuntu is an enigma. So what really makes this distro stand out from other community projects like openSuse, Freespire, Debian? Well, I think what pulls many is the simplicity to the tool, how they kept true to Linux ideals by making a software that wasn't like windows in every aspect, yet was easiest enough to function for newbies.
How do I build Linux kernel module against installed or running Linux kernel? Do I need to install new kernel source tree from kernel.org? To be frank you do not need a new full source tree in order to just compile or build module against the running kernel.
No single product has done more to fuel the Cheap Revolution than Linux. This free operating system runs in Wall Street banks and Hollywood special effects shops, on supercomputers and smart phones, TiVo boxes and network routers. Now, some of the hackers who started this wonderful free software movement are threatening to screw the whole thing up.
It was no secret that Mandriva released Beta 3 to their upcoming 2007 yesterday. I saw the news carried on just about every Linux site out there. I'm not sure why all the excitement and attention this time, I must have missed something. I mean, I'm always quite excited, but that kind of press is usually reserved for major releases or developmental milestones. Perhaps beta 3 is a milestone. There are some nice new features this time and perhaps this is why it was so noteworthy. It took me over 24 hours, but I finally got the 586/x64_86 dvd downloaded and burnt. This is what we found.
