If you’ve been following this blog or using Ubuntu for any amount of time I’m sure you’ve had to get your hands a bit dirty on the command line and use a text editor of some sort. Everyone seems to have their favorite. Some people prefer nano, maybe pico and the old-school peeps will always tell you about vi/vim. Why vim?
Most of my regular readers probably know by now that I am developing OpenMP-codes for work. I am also using Linux, more precisely Ubuntu Linux (even more precisely: Kubuntu Linux 6.10). When it comes to compilers for this platform, the Intel Compiler is one of the few affordable choices available - at least if you need OpenMP-support. I would like to tell you about how to install the Intel Compiler on a Debian-based system.
The whole experience of installing Feisty on VMware Fusion was nothing short of impressive. Probably the first screenshot of Feisty running on VMware Fusion to hit the web.
I couldn't make this up if I tried. A friend pinged me and said he'd gotten a call from a Microsoft recruiter trying to fill a position she described as "open source evangelist." My friend, who does not want his name associated with this story, is without question an open source evangelist, and quite a successful one at that. But he is not interested in going to work for Microsoft. Are you?
The movie players provided in Ubuntu can play back unencrypted DVDs. However, many commercial DVDs are encrypted with a weak algorithm called Content Scrambling System (CSS).You can enable playback of encrypted DVDs with MPlayer, xine and Totem-xine by installing libdvdcss2.
A terminal emulation program for TCP/IP networks such as the Internet. The Telnet program runs on your computer and connects your PC to a server on the network. Telnet is a common way to remotely control Web servers.
I recently reported on my good results with migrating an old server from RH7 to Debian Sarge, beginning with the network-install CD. I've now done an Etch install on the same Thinkpad I recently used for evaluating seven single-CD distros, and this article explains what I did and how it worked out.
The last days were quite interesting regarding KDE 4 development: Aaron released a screenshot showing the new Alt+F2 application launcher with translucency abilities and linked a public relations (or sometimes called propaganda) document introducing Oxygen to “normal” people.
Call me a sappy romantic if you must, but what I want for Christmas this year is this: for all of you to look around and really look at what you have created. It is more than just 1's and 0's, more than just Linus Torvalds' fan club, more than just the anti-Microsoft. It is the true meaning of giving and sharing, all wrapped up in a tarball.
It has been seven weeks since Novell and Microsoft announced their interoperability and patent protection deal. This week the companies revealed the first fruits of that pact and with them the first big-name staff defection.
Graphics software vendor Xara says its open source vector illustration project Xara LX is far from dead, even though work on it has slowed to a crawl in recent months.
As 2006 nears its close, Dave and Matt decided to try to do a "Year in Review" sort of post or two. This has been an exceptional year for open source.
Open Addict v3.0 is now back online, just in time for the Christmas holiday. Millions of Linux and BSD nerds undoubtedly need a place to point their new computers' web browsers and Open Addict v3.0 is back online for their viewing pleasure.
As I sit here plugging away on this XP box I started giving some thought to just what I'd have to do to switch over entirely to Linux. I've tried out Ubuntu on a 2nd machine of mine and I have to tell you that I really like it. It's fast, it looks good, there's plenty of free software modules available for it and it just plain works. So why, you ask haven't I switched my main machine over?
Can a game company make a profit producing commercial offerings for Linux? Two cross-platform offerings that run on Linux are hoping to show that it can be done.
Linux was founded on the command line. If you look around a little bit and find some of the Linux "old school" guys, you'll find that they tend to shy away from the gui. Linux has really stepped it up a notch visually.
Most of the big tech stories of 2006 have already gotten far too much coverage. Does anyone not know that HP hit a serious bump in the road this year due to its snooping on employees and board members? Other stories – with far more long-term importance – have gotten much less ink.
Will 2007 be the year of the Free Software desktop? David Chisnall's answer is "probably not, but who cares?" Microsoft won the desktop war; can Free Software win the next one?
Open-source software in schools will be the driving force for Gordon Brown’s proposed ‘Knowledge Economy’, it was claimed today. The claim comes from Bluefountain, after massive cross-party backbench support for a change in government policy for IT in education.
