If you buy a computer, you often pay for Microsoft Windows even if you didn't ask for it and aren't going to use it. This article shows you how to return your unused Windows license and get your money back, freeing yourself from the Windows tax.
The closing of Fedora Legacy Linux returns us to the question of linking community support with the bottom line. Now Novell is piling on, linking its latest lead in Linux download statistics directly to RedHat's decision not to raise its contribution to the Legacy project. The claim is subject to dispute.
The One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) project will showcase its self-powered, low-cost, XO laptop computer at the 2007 Computer Electronics Show in Las Vegas next week. The project aims to distribute -- free of charge -- millions of Linux-based laptops to needy children around the world.
If you have only ever used Windows and you are attempting to install Linux on your own, perhaps because you have never met another Linux user, then the Redhat installer was not the most friendly place to be. Anaconda is beautiful, and fantastic for technical users, but not particularly newbie friendly. So in the beginning, Ubuntu bypassed all this.
Konqueror tries to establish a connection using IPv6 when that fails it uses the reqular IPv4 protocol. So to speed up the loading of web pages just...
Being mainly a GNOME user on the desktop, I have been waiting for two main utilities I can find in KDE: a font installer comparable to the one in the KDE Control Center, and a multiple item clipboard comparable to Klipper. I'm still waiting for the font installer, but Desktop Data Manager (DDM) may eventually be a Klipper replacement.
I realize, with everything else I’ve written, that I have never actually outlined how to upgrade your machine between releases. You can upgrade your machine in just a few short steps.
Samba software, is a free, open source implementation of networking protocols to share files between UNIX/Linux and Windows computers. Samba comes with different types of permissions for share. Try to remember few things about UNIX and Samba permissions.
Streamtuner is a point-and-click GUI browser for the thousands of Internet radio streams available today. It lets you play streams and manage your favorites in a single window -- like a Linux tuner for Internet radio.
In a few years time, it will be impossible to study the history of home computers since everything at the time was proprietary; both in terms of the physical hardware, and all the software that ran upon it since most of it is encumbered by software “protection” to prevent copying.
Drupal 4.6.11 and Drupal 4.7.5 are available for download. These are maintenance releases that fix problems reported using the bug tracking system, as well as two security vulnerabilities.
Upgrading your existing Drupal sites is strongly recommended.
Drupal 4.7.5 can be downloaded from http://ftp.osuosl.org/pub/drupal/files/projects/drupal-4.7.5.tar.gz.
Exaile is a media player aiming to be similar to KDE’s AmaroK, but for GTK+. It incorporates many of the cool things from AmaroK (and other media players) like automatic fetching of album art, handling of large libraries, lyrics fetching, artist/album information via the wikipedia, last.fm support, optional iPod support.
I believe that there are two essential security requirements for managing core files, one is that the complete security context of the crashing process is stored (to the greatest possible extent), and the other is that processes with different security contexts be prevented from discovering that a process dumped core (when attacking a daemon it would be helpful to know when you made one of it's processes dump core).
For billions of parents who earn only a few dollars a day, paying for a child's education - books, etc. - often gets neglected. Many simple solutions that break that cycle of poverty have been tried and have failed. Now another one is on the horizon: a "$100 laptop."
Have you ever found a new piece of software that sounds like it's the perfect match for your needs, only to get bogged down by bad documentation or a horrendous interface?
Jeff Garzik noted that the hardware documentation for the Promise SX4 chipset is being opened up and therefor the sata_sx4 driver is a good candidate for improvements, "I would like to take this opportunity to point hackers looking for a project at this hardware."
Ever wonder what KDE 4.0 is going to look like when it is finally released some time this year ? As far as end users should be concerned, it is going to be much more beautiful, responsive and usable than KDE 3.5.
1. There's no package management system.
Yes, you heard right, but hear me out...
2. Slackware isn't for slackers.
Slackware demands perfection.
Novell moved Wednesday to underscore its support for free software development after volunteer technical support collapsed for rival Red Hat's free Linux version.
Since the beginning of the software industry, nearly every software company in the world has followed the same business model: its own employees develop the software, which is closely held intellectual property, the software is delivered to clients in binary form, and users run the licensed software on their own computers. Today, this model has been challenged by a new paradigm: open source.
