Drupal is a nice CMS, which is easy to use but it requires some special server settings. I wrote this “how to” for those who want to run this CMS on their ISPConfig server. Probably you can setup Drupal in different ways but I prefer the way descibed here.
In this how to, I will use just as an example:
- Drupal version 4.7.3. for a single drupal site configuration.
What do you call it when 1,000 beer drinkers get together for a feast? A Beerfest.
What do you call it when 1,000 Linux user and fans line up for a feast? A Linuxfest.
Is Ubuntu an operating system? Ubuntu isn’t trying to be a platform for mass-market application software: it is trying to be the primary provider of both the operating system and all the application software that a typical user would want to run on his machine. Most Linux distributions are like this, and I think it is a dangerous trend that will stifle innovation and usability, or even worse make the desktop irrelevant.
I don't know if the folks at Xiph.org can live day-in and day-out using only the free Vorbis, FLAC, Speex, and Theora codecs, but the rest of us routinely run into consumer devices that don't recognize and support them. But with a little help from Filesystem in Userspace (FUSE) and MP3FS, you cross one incompatibility off that list. MP3FS lets you mount a directory hierarchy of FLAC audio files and transparently present them as MP3s to software and hardware devices alike.
Beaming people in Star Trek fashion is still in the realms of science fiction but physicists in Denmark have teleported information from light to matter bringing quantum communication and computing closer to reality.
Keeping track of your to-do items and tasks should be simple, but often the software that people use for those purposes is anything but. Many such applications are also calendars, reminders, appointment managers, and more -- in other words, overkill. By contrast, todo.txt and Tux ToDo try to keep it simple.
It’s no secret that I love free software; you don’t decide to start a magazine about it and stick with it for years unpaid if you don’t. While making Free Software Magazine, I learned a lot about free software and its ecology. What I discovered was sometimes exciting, sometimes disheartening.
Mandriva has announced the signing of a definitive agreement to acquire Linbox, pending shareholder approval. "Active in both Open Source and Linux market for 10 years, Linbox develops and markets software infrastructure administration products for medium to large organizations."
VNC stands for Virtual Network Computing. It is, in essence, a remote display system which allows you to view a computing `desktop’ environment not only on the machine where it is running, but from anywhere on the Internet and from a wide variety of machine architectures.
Ubuntu is a free, open source Linux-based operating system that starts with the breadth of Debian and adds regular releases (every six months), a clear focus on the user and usability (it should “Just Work”, TM) and a commitment to security updates with 18 months of support for every release (and with 6.06 LTS you get 3 years on the desktop and 5 on the server!). Ubuntu ships with the latest GNOME release as well as a selection of server and desktop software that makes for a comfortable desktop experience off a single installation CD.
In case you’ve been living in a cave, Ajax is the hot new buzzword in web development, made popular by Google applications like gmail and Google Maps, and also by Yahoo Mail. It isn’t really a new technology.
After Kororaa had faced GPL legal issues for including the proprietary NVIDIA and ATI drivers, the closed-source kernel modules have now been removed so this distribution can continue in their XGL + AIGLX LiveCD production. Kororaa 0.3 includes the open-source display drivers for the Intel and ATI components, meanwhile NVIDIA users are out of luck for any XGL or AIGLX action. This new release also includes the Linux 2.6.18 kernel. Screenshots @ Phoronix.
Mandriva you say? To be honest I haven’t used Mandriva since the days when they were known as Mandrake. Since that time I have become perfectly happy with Ubuntu and Fedora, but decided to give Mandriva another chance since their latest version sports some very nice software.
In the jargon-laden world of IT, new terms are created as shorthand ways of referencing or discussing otherwise cumbersome phrases. One addition to the lexicon that has gained increased popularity and use is "LAMP," which refers to a collection of free, largely open source software.
Those who know me will know that I finally got around to installing Vista RC1 on my desktop machine and have had quite the journey with it. Initially I was impressed.
Few computers have more right to the term "business machine" than the ThinkPad laptop series. The ThinkPad is among the oldest extant laptop computer brands. The first thing I noticed with the ThinkPad T60p was that all of the special buttons and functions worked perfectly in SLED 10, including suspend to RAM and suspend to disk. I can't say I have used many laptop computers recently that could claim this honor.
Qt 4.2 is the latest version of the C++ application development framework from Norway-based Trolltech. Qt 4.2 provides greater integration with GNOME than previous versions of Qt. Qt-based programs have for some time been able to integrate with GNOME and GTK. Trolltech is also targeting Windows users with the Qt 4.2 release, but it's not the first time.
Got a problem with your flash player plugin in Firefox not giving up it’s sound? Here’s the fix.
Chris Brown has put together two useful books about Novell's "Community Distribution," SUSE Linux . (I'd have called it SUSE 10.1.) Unfortunately, O'Reilly decided to bind them together.
