My first contact with openSUSE 10.2 was frustrated. I downloaded 5 ISOs from the mirror site at Japan, and tried to install it on my laptop: Toshiba Portege M500. I spent a lot of time to configure the wireless device: Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG, but still failed.
It's one of those YouTube videos folks. View Here.
My tests with VirtualBox went well enough that I decided to move my webserver and mailserver VMs to it (from VMware Workstation 6 beta). VMware does the job great, but VBox is open source and a little faster.
Linux text files and Windows text files differ from each other in an important aspect. They have a different way to indicate the end of a line. This solution describes how to convert a Windows-like text file to a Linux-like one, and the other way around.
Jeff Gould of InformationWeek has an interesting article entitled, "Can Red Hat Rival Microsoft?" He sets it up provocatively, if not accurately. It's a problem, Jeff, if you believe the alternative is truly proprietary vs. open source. But I think the market is moving past that decision.
Sometimes you want the latest version of a particular application, but you find out that it isn't available from the Ubuntu repositories just yet, and most probably it won't be included until the next version of Ubuntu is released. So what to do? You can use the older version that is included in the repositories or build the latest version from source.
Dave Freese has just released version 1.2 of Fldigi, a popular new program for Linux and FreeBSD which enables amateur radio operators to join their radios and their computers at the hip and create a new kind of ham shack: a digital ham shack. Here's the story behind both the rising popularity of "sound card" digital modes in amateur radio and how Fldigi lets you enjoy enjoy them on Linux.
Last October we had compared the performance of the open-source R300 display driver against the closed-source fglrx driver for ATI Radeon graphics cards. In that comparison a Mobility Radeon X300 was used with X.Org 7.1, but we have decided to take another look at this driver comparison under X.Org 7.2. In this last comparison, the fglrx binary blob had greatly outperformed the open-source driver. While the fglrx driver remains faster, has the performance delta between these two drivers decreased?
Following my recent article in which I wrote that neither I, nor several financial analysis firms, were aware of any companies that were planning to deploy Oracle's Unbreakable Linux, a handful of companies have told me that they are giving Unbreakable Linux a try.
If you need to run several commands chain them with a ; (semi colon). It is a control operator or metacharacter.
Phonon is a new KDE technology that offers a consistent API to use audio or video within multimedia applications. The API is designed to be Qt-like, and as such, it offers KDE developers a familiar style of functionality.
Some days ago Linus released the newest Kernel, version 2.6.20. However, the new WLan subsystem again didn’t make it into the main kernel, and it looks like that it will need some more work.
Wow. What a year 2006 turned out to be for Novell. In case you're not familiar with the Microsoft/Novell deal, let me give you a brief overview. Sometime in 2006, Novell's CEO contacted Microsoft in order to reach an agreement to work together for the betterment of Linux and Windows software. Andreas Jaeger, sat down and talked about Microsoft, Linux and where the MS deal is taking SUSE.
Like many others I found myself reading a witty article on the Guardian from Charlie Brooker entitled I hate Macs. The article used the latest advertising campaigns in the UK as a basis for getting it's point across and it made a thoroughly good read. It got me thinking, surely it must be really hard to actually HATE Linux...
Many Linux apps let you manage your movie collection, or your book collection, or your music collection -- but Data Crow is one of the few that handles all of the above, plus software and images. It also puts a lot of import tools at your fingertips that can save you from entering information about your media manually -- including importing information directly from online services and text files, and extracting information from music files.
The low-cost laptop, which in the coming weeks will go into wide-scale production, could have applications in needy U.S. school districts. However, the economic impact of a laptop at that price point could scare off potential manufacturers. Ultimately, educators believe all efforts should be made to bring inexpensive technology and devices to students who need them.

With the release of Vista and the curiosity people have with trying other operating systems in light of its release, I have found myself knee deep in a number of operating systems over the course of the past few months. BSD, Linux, even OS X. But when it comes to Linux, there are still a number of users feeling overwhelmed as they become confused with this Linux distribution’s way of doing things.
