tuxvaio: As with the installation of SuSE 10.1, installing Mandriva 2007 was frightfully simple. All devices worked with the sole exception of the wireless functionality of the Centrino. This can be fixed by a software download or a inexpensive Linux compatible PC card wireless adapter.
FOSSwire: Partitioning your hard drives is rarely a fun business and oftentimes can be a real pain to do. Thankfully, it’s a lot easier than it used to be to slice up and mess around with your drive.
freesoftwaremagazine: One of the things I hate about Windows is that there is no good way to kill frozen processes. Theoretically, you type Ctrl-Alt-Delete, wait for Task Manager to pop up, and kill the process. GNU/Linux users don't have this problem. Here's how to end processes using the terminal, a few GUIs, and even a first person shooter.
Yet Another Linux Blog: I originally intended this post to be a review of 2007 Final for PCLinuxOS. However, after finishing it up, I realized that posting a review wouldn’t have the desired effect of truly showing off PCLinuxOS to everyone. It would just be a “business as usual” type of post. So, I decided to do a analysis on what I feel sets PCLinuxOS apart from many Linux distributions.
allaboutubuntu: A few hours after setting up my new Dell Ubuntu PC, my wife jumped onto the system. You know her kind: She is an Apple Mac OS fan who uses Windows — but doesn’t really like Windows. So, how did she do with Linux?
ITtoolbox Blogs: Recently I found that Dell has partnered with Canonical to offer the latest version of Ubuntu (7.04) with the sale of new Dell computers. (See Dell Sells Computers with Ubuntu & 100th Entry!) This piqued my interest because of the hoops I had to jump through to get my Dell Intel Pro Wireless (IPW) 2200bg card to work with Fedora Core 4. My theory is that Ubuntu 7.04 should be incredibly easy to install and configure on my Dell laptop. So I put my theory to the test.
The Gnome Journal: Paul Cutler interviews Ken VanDine, founder of Foresight Linux, on building images for the recent GNOME 2.18 Live Media release. Ken discusses his goals in helping create new GNOME Live Media, the tools he used in putting the different images together, and his plans for future GNOME Live Media releases.
Phoronix: At Phoronix we are constantly exploring the different display drivers under Linux, and while we have reviewed Sun's Check Tool and test motherboards with Solaris in addition to covering a few other areas, we have yet to perform a graphics driver comparison between Linux and Solaris. That is until today.
kernelTRAP: Following a recent patch that translated Documentation/HOWTO into Japanese [story], a new patch offered a translation of the same document into Chinese. Li Yang noted, "Language could be the main obstacle. Hopefully this document will help."
Ubuntu Geek: Setting up a computer to share its internet connection should be easy.After all, you’ve successfully networked your computers together and even shared files with all your home computers, so why not the Internet?
Ye Olde Blogge: Everybody knows PCLinuxOS is radically simple, right? And it is. It's one of the best Live CDs around because it has all the non-free codecs and plugins installed by default, it's easy to install on the harddisk, and it doesn't require much configuration afterwards – unless you are one of those people that like to configure, tweak and personalize their OS to the point of turning it into a new distro.
In this tutorial I will show how you can set up a Postfix mailserver as a backup mail exchanger for a domain so that it accepts mails for this domain in case the primary mail exchanger is down or unreachable, and passes the mails on to the primary MX once that one is up again.
Yet Another Linux Blog: Let me make it clear for you Michael Hickins of Eweek. Your Article "Is Open Source Dying?" doesn’t even make it into the outer ring of the target for facts. If you were trying to shoot an arrow into the air with this article, you’d miss.
/home/liquidat: Some days ago someone on slashdot mentioned that the next Opera version is going to pass all CSS 3 tests. While this is great news for Opera I wondered how well konqueror does on this tests.
WSJ: Linux has had a great run. But to keep the growth, the upstart operating system needs to please more people like Jim Walsh.
sheehantu: Ubuntu is a great distro, but it still needs some slight tweaking to get it just right. I’m going to show you how to use Automatix2 to get your OS perfected.
itmanagement: These are short and easy things to do which can make your Linux desktop even more convenient than it currently is. Trying Ubuntu out without changing your distribution or creating a new drive partition or installing it on another HD, setting up OpenOffice so ability to read/write Windows Office 2007 word processor documents are what you'll learn how to do today.
The How-to-geek: So you are using the killer Amarok music application under Ubuntu, but when you try to "Burn this Album", the menu item is grayed out and otherwise disabled. The reason for this is because Amarok is a KDE application designed to work with K3b.
Notes from the Metaverse: It’s been a little bit of a bumpy ride (but what would you expect with an Alpha release?), but I’m typing from my newly installed Alpha 5 system. Time to share the experience.
searchenterpriselinux: Intrusion detection and intrusion prevention systems (IDS and IPS, respectively) provide the ability to inspect and analyze network traffic and either generate alerts or drop traffic in the event that an attack or a malicious event is detected. We're going to demonstrate how to quickly install and run the open source IDS sensor Snort on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 (RHEL 5).
