linux.com: Battle for Wesnoth is an amazingly addictive 2-D turn-based strategy game with some role playing game elements thrown in for spice. It runs under Linux, Windows, and Mac OS X. Wesnoth can be played solo, using one of the several single-player adventures (campaigns) available, or over the Internet with other people.
At Opera we truly want to make the best browser. We would like to know which features you want us to add to make your Opera experience even better. We will be doing this using blog tagging.
FOSSwire: A nice short and sweet command line tip today and it’s to do with finding out information about the version of the kernel you’re running. You might be asked for this information if you are asking for help somewhere or you might be messing around with your kernel.
desktoplinux: Wal-Mart will sell a sub-$300 "back-to-school" PC this fall pre-loaded with Microsoft Windows Vista and OpenOffice.org productivity software. The Everex GC3502 PC is based on a 1.7GHz Via C7-D processor, and will be available later this year preloaded with Ubuntu Linux.
wired blogs: There are two big open-source software gatherings happening over the next week, as both Ubuntu Live and O'Reilly OSCON descend upon the Oregon Convention Center in Portland (which even has a moat!).
junocake: The initial plan was to create a RAID-0 array (striping for performance), re-install Debian, copy all data, and remove the older drives for noise and heat reasons. With two of them PATA drives, they could stay in the system easily copy straight to the new array.
desktoplinux: On July 5, Microsoft quietly released a "Covenant to Customers" to clear up how it is handling its patent deal with Linux distributor Linspire. Instead, it did little but puzzle and annoy members of the Linux community.
Reuters: Nigerian schoolchildren who received laptops from a U.S. aid organization have used them to explore pornographic sites on the Internet.
jono bacon: One of the services that Canonical are working to offer are high quality training courses. These courses are produced by our training team and executed around the world by training partners.
ubuntugeek: Gnome-schedule is a grapichal user interface to ‘crontab’ and ‘at’, both used to schedule tasks. It supports periodical tasks and tasks that happens once in the future. It is written in python using pygtk. Gnome-schedule also supports titles and icons for your tasks so that they are more easily to keep track of.
freesoftware mag blogs: The normally boring world of international standards has turned into a bloody fist fight between the most brutal monopolist of modern times, and the Community. Just the name, “Office Open XML” makes my head spin.
the distrogue: I've always found the Enlightenment desktop fascinating. Maybe it has something to do with all the shiny. It's a great balance of eye-candy and performance, and with a little tweaking, can be turned into an awesome desktop system. That's what ELive is.
kernelTRAP: Rusty Russell's lguest was recently merged into the upcoming 2.6.23 Linux kernel. The merge comment describes the project, "lguest is a simple hypervisor for Linux on Linux. Unlike kvm it doesn't need VT/SVM hardware. Unlike Xen it's simply 'modprobe and go'.
Raiden's Realm: JWM (Joe's Window Manager) is a very lightweight window manager for use with X windows under Linux or Unix. My compiled version weighs in at 138KBytes in size, not the dozens of megabytes like KDE or GNOME. If you are looking for a simple kiosk system interface or a lightweight desktop for a dedicated server, then JWM should fit the bill nicely.
linux.com: For many users, the xorg.conf file, which configures the system resources, graphics card, keyboard, pointing device, and monitor for a computer running the X Window System, is an exception to GNU/Linux's do-it-yourself credo. Users who think nothing of editing /etc/fstab or /etc/hosts.allow will shy away from xorg.conf for fear of breaking their systems, relying instead on tools such as the KDE Control Center or Debian's dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg instead. But learning your way around xorg.conf not only teaches you a lot about how your system operates -- it can also come in handy when the graphical display fails.
beranger: RMS will not save the world - he has just killed the FLOSS, actually. We have already started to hear about strange license lockups...
Take charge of your editing session within Emacs and use it to your advantage. This tutorial is the fourth in a series, and shows you three areas of Emacs that control some aspect of the editing session: various command-line options, the register, and bookmark facilities for setting and saving positions and data.
osweekly: As my week progresses, I'm seeing entirely too many utopia articles, such as this one. And while much of the article is spot on, especially with those who would rather play in traffic that use Vista, the problem of wireless Internet connectivity and popular media codecs very much remains in disarray.
kernelTRAP: In response to a recent merge request, Linus Torvalds explained how he preferred the request to be formatted, "please don't hide the branch name in the free-flowing text".
linux journal: Most people in the free software world know two things about Apache. The first is that its name derives from the fact that it was a “a patchy server”, built out of patches to the earlier NCSA HTTPd Web server. The other is that in terms of market share, Apache knocks Microsoft's IIS into a cocked hat. Unfortunately, neither of these statements is true.
