More than twelve months after the NSW Department of Commerce announced approved suppliers of open source software and services to state government agencies, there hasn't been a single sale prompting a review to evaluate and improve the contract.
In part 1 of this entry, I discussed how to use Calc's page styles to control how spreadsheets print. However, although page styles are one of the most useful tools for the task, they are far from the only ones. How you setup pages for printing and the printer or export options are also part of the arsenal.
Version 0.5.2 of FreeCol, a free/open-source Colonization clone, has been released.
By this point, everyone has heard of Damn Small Linux (DSL). When it comes to packing a full-featured Linux desktop environment into something as small as a pendrive, no one does it better than DSL. DSL uses Knoppix technology to boot and run from a live CD.
Since the release of Ubuntu (6.06.1) “Dapper Drake” there have been some great improvements in support for wireless and broadcom chipsets. You no longer need to configure ndiswrapper for wireless support. This supports *MOST* broadcom chipsets.
Sabayon Linux is a Gentoo based distribution that is designed to be easy to install and configure. Savvy Linux users know that Gentoo is a "roll your own" distribution where you create your own distro from scratch--installing and compiling all your programs. They say you learn a lot of Linux by doing a Gentoo install, and that you end up with a very speedy system optimized to your specific needs.
What about those of us who want to try the Gentoo experience without taking several days to get it up and running?
Then Sabayon Linux is for you.
Here you’ve got a comprehensive guide of installing Java on Debian GNU/Linux and enabling it on Firefox.
While I’ve been off doing my own thing, the Wine team has been hard at work and they’ve done some amazing things. So I turned to Wine for the first time in years. I read about some very positive experiences with WoW on Wine under other Linux distros. So I was able to just copy my existing installed copy of WoW off my laptop on to my Suse box using a Samba shared folder.
Woh….spice girls har, where where?? Haha…is in Linux machine. SPICE is stand for ‘Simulation Program with Integrated Circuit Emphasis’ and was inspired by the application to IC design, which made computer simulation mandatory. To run a simulation in Linux, you will need a ng-spice and you can freely download from this here.
auto-apt is a program that checks file access of programs running within auto-apt environments. If a program will access a file of uninstalled package, auto-apt will install the package containing the file, by using apt-get.
NFS is a network protocol with which many UNIX-administrators have a love/hate relationship. On the one hand, it’s the ideal protocol if you need to export a filesystem from a UNIX-like system. On the other, it has a bit of a reputation of being insecure.
Each distribution has some specific tools to build a custom kernel from the sources. This article is about compiling a kernel on CentOS 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.
It was started as a movement of long-haired geeks and coders, but today the Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) network is now seeing some big corporate names and government institutions backing it with funding and support in various ways.
While perusing the Ubuntu forums for a way to fix my disappeared bootup and shutdown usplash, I found this great new tool for Ubuntu 6.10 (Edgy) called StartUp-Manager or SUM.
This tutorial shows how to set up a Ubuntu 6.10 server (Edgy Eft) as a firewall and gateway for small/medium networks. The article covers the installation/configuration of services such as Shorewall, NAT, caching nameserver, DHCP server, VPN server, Webmin, Munin, Apache, Squirrelmail, Postfix, Courier IMAP and POP3, SpamAssassin, ClamAV, and many more.
It's been a full four months since we have taken a look at the "sequel" to the RR4 distro, Sabayon. Named after an Italian desert, I am not sure how that relates itself to Linux. Perhaps because it's a tasty distro? There's no denying that this is one of the most robust and fresh looking distros out there, so that may very well be the case.
Celestia, an amazing 3D space simulation lets you explore our Solar System in great detail. You can download it for Linux, Windows, OSX or as source. If you’re an Ubuntu user (or Debian) simply open a terminal session and type:
One of the things I wanted to do this weekend was install Ubuntu on my Mac as a sandbox using Parallels as the virtual system. I figured the worst thing that could happen was that it'd force me to sit down and read the d*mn documentation, I downloaded an Ubuntu ISO.
I have put together a few quick steps to installing Iceweasel for anyone that would like to try the new browser, or would prefer it over the trademarked Firefox.
