SLAX, our favorite mini LiveCD at Phoronix, has reached version 5.1.8. Like usual, they have their various SLAX editions such as KillBill, Server, Popcorn, and Frodo. SLAX Standard v5.1.8 features KDE 3.5.4, recompiled with some Slackware 11.0 fixes, better handling of booting from USB devices, and added slaxsave.zip to the SLAX CD.
Mandriva, makers of the popular Linux distribution, are to hold a global Linux installfest later this month.
Recently I was given the task of rolling out a number of PCs running Linux for a student lab. The roll out isn't complete yet, but I thought that this trick was so nice for lab based environments that I'd use it to try my hand at a debian-administration article.
LAST YEAR was the 30th anniversary of Moore's Law, Intel founder Gordon Moore's prediction that the number of transistors on a chip would double about every two years. A lot of learned researchers have since explained why Moore's Law was ending. And yet, it hasn't.
Have you been planning on getting around to learning how to use the GIMP someday? Well now that the GIMP has had its tenth anniversary, it’s about time to start. In this article, I will walk you step by step through the process of making a web banner using the GIMP. Hopefully this kickstart will encourage you to do more playing on your own.
Naming distribution versions after a calendar year sounds familiar to me. I'm thinking of Windows 95, of course. And my experience with French distribution Mandriva 2007 brought me back to those frustrating times I used to have with Microsoft's decade-old offering.
Desktop applications such as Firefox, Thunderbird, and the GIMP are not the only ones that can use extensions and plugins for added functionality -- some Web-based programs can too. DokuWiki, for example, is a great wiki system by itself, but since it can accept plugins, you can easily add some nifty features to it.
The government of Libya reached an agreement with an American nonprofit group to provide inexpensive laptop computers to all of its 1.2 million schoolchildren, The New York Times reported in Wednesday's editions.
The Open Source Development Labs (OSDL) has released version 1.0 of its Project Portland application to link rival Linux technologies.
The user information is stored in the system /etc/passwd and /etc/shadow files, and that additionally, group membership information is stored in the /etc/group file. The update-passwd tool keeps the entries in these master files in sync on all Debian systems
Quite often, we speculate about Linux grabbing a major share of the desktop PC market. But it seems the film industry are heavy users of Linux, and applications that run on Linux which include both open source and closed source custom made software.
Last week, OpenBSD founder Theo de Raadt released to the public an e-mail he sent to various developers affiliated with the OLPC project in which he criticizes the developers for signing non-disclosure agreements to gain access to documentation that describes the proprietary firmware used in the wireless networking hardware included in the OLPC prototype.
The book features plenty of diagrams and screen shots (which are of the monochrome variety). While the author doesn't assume a programmer audience, he doesn't make the mistake of talking down either. The writing is friendly and commendably clear.
It was a nice evening. I started Rpmdrake 2007 "the long way" (Applications -> System -> Configuration -> Packaging -> Install, Remove & Update Software), then I looked into what video & audio applications could I add from PLF (with all the codecs).
I have for many years considered myself a "Professional Linux Installer". I bet there are some readers that know what I am talking about. In the past, I would try many distros out but never really liking any of them. I tried the SUSE's and Mandrake's of long ago but I finally settled on Xandros. But now, I think I may have found another.... Ubuntu may be calling me to switch.
The estranged husband of a missing mother was arrested Tuesday on suspicion of murder in connection with her disappearance more than a month ago, police said.
More than 100 days in office, Novell CEO Ron Hovsepian outlined Novell's challenges and opportunities with Linux and NetWare, the channel, Red Hat, Microsoft and Xen, as well as his goals for moving the company forward.
I was bored. Terribly bored. Bored of Five years of the same <bleep> desktop. The blue and the green and the supposed eye candy. I had kubuntu installed on another partition and was excited but I did something stupid and destroyed it.
Perhaps my cynical side gets the best of me, but when the folks in the Ivory Tower and government agencies try to do something for the poor folks, they usually don't quite get it quite right. By all means, the project should still go forth, but with the unfortunate realization that some of the goods are going to slip through the cracks and into the black market.
Andrew Morton has tagged 2.6.19-rc1-mm1. Interesting features of this release include the preliminary ext4 file system with extents. In addition there are the usual slew of early -rc-mm kernel additions.
