The Spring of 2006 will certainly be remembered as a banner season for desktop Linux. The reason we think this will be remembered as an "up" season for Linux is due to the efforts of one company to port some of its popular applications to the Linux desktop. We speak, of course, of Google.
There are situations where it is common to want to update multiple machines running Debian GNU/Linux whilst minimizing the bandwidth used for downloading packages and updates. There are several different solutions for this problem and here we'll look at one of them.
What is ELF? ELF (Executable and Linking Format) is file format that defines how an object file is composed and organized. With this information, your kernel and the binary loader know how to load the file, where to look for the code, where to look the initialized data, which shared library that needs to be loaded and so on.
Nexuiz, an open-source multi-platform game designed for classic death-match game-play, has come yesterday with Nexuiz version 2.0. We at Phoronix have taken a quick look at this latest update.
Dreaming about a free software competitor for Skype? Maybe your wait is over. Wengophone is a communication-over-IP application. I’ll try to do a feature comparison between Wengophone and Skype for GNU/Linux and review all points one by one.
I was just reading Ubuntu ready for big biz, when an annoying cliché literrally jumped into my eyes: «Mark Shuttleworth, founder of UK-based Canonical».
No, Canonical is NOT UK-based, it's an Isle of Man-based business!
Some members of the open-source community are skeptical about Microsoft's efforts to bridge incompatibilities between software licensed under the GNU General Public License and its own commercial software.
Only a few weeks after releasing its first Linux application -- the photo editing program, Picasa -- Google has released its second application for Linux: Google Earth for Linux 4.
Vim ships with a lot of useful functions that make life easier when you're editing text, but Vim is also an extremely extensible editor. If you find yourself typing the same long commands or strings of text over and over again, it's time you learned how to set mappings and abbreviations in Vim, to save valuable keystrokes for your code or prose.
The latest version of the Ubuntu GNU/Linux distro, launched on June 1, was designed specifically with large organizations in mind, says the open-source project's founder.
It may be two years away, but when a giant the size of Gates moves, the world moves with him. And, in that movement, in this period of change, Linux may have its best chance ever to seize the marketplace momentum from Microsoft.
The Debian GNU/Linux operating system is a marvelous piece of engineering, and Martin Krafft's new book "The Debian System, Concepts and Techniques" shows you how to get under the hood and take advantage of all the power it puts in your hands.
If you're one of the many users who has two (or more) computers on your desk, you might get tired of switching between the keyboard and mouse on different systems. KVMs are one solution, but if you'd like to save a few bucks and be able to switch between two or more computers with a flick of the mouse, Synergy is the software for you.
Well, here we go again. With hardly any break at all those poor opensuse developers who have once again been chained to their desktops and only let loose for the occasional bathroom break, have released the next version's alpha 1. I can feel the excitement starting to mount already -albeit a just a slight hint at this point. SUSE 10.2 alpha 1 seems little more than a bug fix/update release.
MEPIS has announced RC1, the release candidate of SimplyMEPIS 6.0. RC1 contains KDE 3.5.3, the latest security updates, an improved USB media handler, and the CD is compressed with squashfs.
Microsoft announced Thursday that chairman and co-founder Bill Gates will transition out of a day-to-day role at the company, effective July 2008, to spend more time working on his charitable foundation.
The handheld entertainment market is certainly active these days. The $199 Gamepark GP2X is an interesting hybrid device. Based on the Linux operating system, this unit is about the size of a traditional handheld gaming player. It sports a 3.5" TFT LCD display and two separate processors.
Ssh forwarding is powerful stuff, but using it can be confusing. For example, let's say we have a machine that our firewall will send traffic to, but we actually want to ssh to another internal machine.
Nagios is a Linux-based host, service and network monitoring program that is starting to attract attention because of its quick configuration and easy maintenance. James Turnbull, author of Pro Nagio 2.0 Turnbull spoke recently with SearchOpenSource.com Assistant Editor MiMi Yeh about how Nagios is different from its counterparts.
