The Free Software Foundation acts as the benevolent force guiding the computer industry. It protects the users of software from the baddies, the list of which very often includes the names Microsoft, Apple, and TiVo. But what happens when the benevolent force transforms into something of a hypocrit?

- Using apt-listchanges

Since its inception, NVClock has evolved quite a bit. At this time there is not only the command-line interface but also GTK and Qt versions. The latest version of NVClock (v0.8 Beta 2) as well as the CVS version support overclocking the NV GPU core and video memory. Other features include card information, OpenGL/display settings, hardware monitoring of both fan speeds and die temperatures, fan speed control, pipeline modding (GeForce 6 series), and PCI id modding.
You would think that find a good video encoding app would be easy. Solid command line tools like transcode, FFmpeg, and MEncoder do exist, but readily available graphical apps are hard to come by. Frustrated with the dedicated alternatives, I turned to Avidemux.
Each distribution has some specific tools to build a custom kernel from the sources. This article is about compiling a kernel on SuSE systems. It describes how to build a custom kernel using the latest unmodified kernel sources from www.kernel.org (vanilla kernel) so that you are independent from the kernels supplied by your distribution. It also shows how to patch the kernel sources if you need features that are not in there.
At some point Linux users may have to dabble with GRUB. I know this from personal experience when I trashed my Ubuntu install a few months ago. Many people may end up re-installing Ubuntu from scratch, but such drastic measures may not be necessary if you can master a few tips and tricks using GRUB.
Search and rescue teams with dogs and all-terrain vehicles combed both sides of rugged Pinehurst Road in Contra Costa County on Saturday in a new search for the body of 31-year-old Nina Reiser.
3 out of 4 of my computers run Ubuntu Linux. Breezy was all right, Dapper was great; when Edgy was released, I wondered, “Could it get any better?"
One of our readers informed us that on Fanfest 2006, CCP Games Chief Technical Officer Halldor Fannar announced GNU/Linux (and Mac) Support for EVE-Online.
To broaden or not broaden the GNU/Linux user base. This topic has generated a ton of discussion and emotion within the community. Whatever your particular stance, one thing is guaranteed. Change! And human beings are typically adverse to Change!
It only took a few days, but already the Linux PS3 has enabled piracy. As the months continue, users are certain to find other ways to exploit Sony's new console.
I have made a kind of research on this issue and here are some ideas on that. Recently Microsoft concluded an agreement with Novell. The agreement’s main aim is support of Linux based applications in the Windows environment. Why would Microsoft need Linux?
Last month's announcement that Microsoft and Novell will cooperate to promote harmonious interconnection between the Windows and Linux operating systems used on servers has produced a spate of commentary, much of it along the lines of "what are they really up to?"
Recently, as noted here, the IBM T41 has been through a raft of distros. It/I has/have settled in on Fedora Core 6 for now, although OpenSUSE 10.2 is probably in it's near future. All part of a search for a perfect laptop distro that can run Evolution decently enough to connect to the corporate MS Exchange server and read my calendar therein. Even though it does not have the Evolution requirement (all Gmail needs is Firefox), my personal IBM X30 Linux laptop runs Ubuntu 6.10 at the moment.
Previous to today's encounter with Pardus Calisan, we had never heard of this GNU/Linux distribution. The Pardus vision is to have a distribution in the vertical markets with differing versions, a sustainable organization with its own resources to run this operating system, and its developers making code contributions to Linux and the open-source society. With that said, we decided to take a look at this Turkish distribution. Those Screenshots.
A group of students at the Paul Sabatier University in Toulouse were given a choice between the more traditional style java based projects usually offered by the University and a KDE project, and chose to work on a KDE project as part of their course of study.
Issue number 20, December 2006, of TUX now is available. Some highlights include TUX People: Pamela Jones, Unreal Tournament 2004: Linux vs. Windows, Install and manage your printer under Linux, and Customizing KDE for the Holiday Season. Download Here.
Pardus is a Turkish distribution that comes with KDE as the default desktop. It is however not just another pack of known open source apps. Pardus comes with its own, original GUI system installer, a package management system — PISI and system settings applet — TASMA, as well as a few additional goods. This review is based on my experience with Pardus Linux 2007 Beta 2, which can be downloaded from the official project’s FTP.
Yesterday I promised I would also include instructions on how to setup IMWheel for support for 5 button mouse within Nautilus file manager. These instructions are a little more detailed and require a touch of customization.
