NimbleX is a small slackware-based distribution that made its way onto DistroWatch's Waiting List last September. While many on the list seem to stop development and disappear off the net, it appears NimbleX is progressing onward. Their site has undergone a recent update as well as their distro. NimbleX 2007 was released on Christmas Day and I decided it sounded like an interesting project to test. In NimbleX I found a wonderful candidate for your small linux needs.
Linux & Unix being network operating systems have a number of powerful tools which aid the network administrator to find out a wealth of data about their network and the Internet. One such tool is the ubiquitous traceroute.
There are so many distros today, one really has a hard time determining which they should try and which should they just kind of ignore. Recently the Zenwalk community release version 4.2, which isn't much different from previous releases, but the first for me to try here at KnoLinux to review. Why have I stayed away?
Fedora Core 6 was released on October 24, 2006 and scheduled to come out a half-year later is the seventh major release for the Fedora Project. However, unlike Yarrow, Tettnang, Heidelberg, Stentz, Bordeaux, and Zod, Fedora 7 is shaping up to be the most ambitious release yet. With all the work and reform going into Fedora 7 it poses the question, will Fedora 7 be Linux's knight in shining armor?
Linus Torvalds explains why the unexpected resilience of kernel version 2.6 has delayed the move to kernel version 2.7. In this two minute video he said that when work started on 2.6, he was worried that major changes would destabilise the kernel.
Sun Microsystems today began touting its Solaris 10 operating system as "a more strategic alternative to commercial Linux distributions; with more applications, more x86 platform support, a larger installed base and cutting edge-technology."
The preliminary hearing for Oakland software developer Hans Reiser on charges that he murdered his estranged wife, Nina Reiser, was thrown into turmoil Tuesday when the couple's son failed to return from Russia to testify in the case.
Nadia Derbey posted a set of patches to the Linux Kernel Mailing List titled AKT, Automatic Kernel Tunables, explaining, "this is a series of patches that introduces a feature that makes the kernel automatically change the tunables values as it sees resources running out."
One of the great things about Linux.conf.au is the chance to mingle with some of the brightest lights in the open source community. For example, Jeff Dike, author and maintainer of User-Mode Linux is here this week to talk about UML and the Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM). During one of the breaks on Monday, I sat down with Dike to talk about UML's immediate future, and picked his brain about other virtualization technologies.
One of the more noteworthy changes that users you will likely see in the next release of Ubuntu’s Feisty Fawn and in Gnome 2.18, will be a new Gnome Control Center. This article will poke around the current Gnome Control Center, as it is in the Herd 2 build of Feisty Fawn (which includes Gnome 2.17.5) to give users an idea what to expect.
It took more than 17 hours in planes and a trip through customs, but I've made the trek from Denver, Colorado, to Sydney, Australia, for Linux.conf.au (LCA) 2007. Already it looks like the trip was worthwhile.
If you build extremely light setups, you might think something is lacking in the font department. Chances are, you’re right. Font smoothing isn’t activated by default under minimal setups.
Carla’s rant in response to my review of Vector Linux is well taken if misplaced. Vector Linux has been around since the late ’90s. Her point, though, is very valid. There are literally hundreds of distributions out there if not more. Ryan Lortie made the same point, albeit less clearly, in his article in response to the Free Software Foundation’s Bad Vista Campaign which Chromatic lampooned. Do we really need a separate distribution like GNewSense strictly for ideological purity?
Let's face it, folks - Linux is an unstoppable force. It runs on everything, everywhere and impacts each one of our lives on a daily basis, whether or not you realize it. Here are five reasons why your operating system of the future will be a Linux distribution and why Microsoft is powerless to stop it.
Text-editing operations are normally done interactively, inside a text editor application. Some tasks, however, can be accomplished quickly and easily, right from the UNIX command line. What's more, these one-liners can be used in scripts to automate various editing procedures.
This guide shows how to work with LVM (Logical Volume Management) on Linux. It also describes how to use LVM together with RAID1 in an extra chapter. As LVM is a rather abstract topic, this article comes with a Debian Etch VMware image that you can download and start, and on that Debian Etch system you can run all the commands I execute here and compare your results with mine. Through this practical approach you should get used to LVM very fast.
Desktop environments like KDE and GNOME make it possible for you to assign keyboard shortcuts to a number of global operations, but don't make it easy to create shortcuts to run any program you'd like. To set up shortcuts for programs, XBindKeys is the way to go.
Inkscape is an Open Source vector graphics editor, with capabilities similar to Illustrator, Freehand, CorelDraw, or Xara X using the W3C standard Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) file format. Inkscape’s main goal is to create a powerful and convenient drawing tool fully compliant with XML, SVG, and CSS standards.
Midnight on January 16 marked the official release of The Burning Crusade, the first official major add-on for the blockbuster massively multiplayer online roleplaying game World of Warcraft. But does it run on Linux?
Digital rights management and the General Public License cause a lot of 'hot air' to be exchanged but they are not a 'big deal', according to the creator of Linux, Linus Torvalds.
