There is a vast array of documentation installed with your typical Linux distribution. There are the ancient and venereal. It would be nice to have all of this stuff in one place. Enter the dhelp
The ultimate goal of the Unicode Consortium is to define all human languages for use with computers. That goal is still some ways off, but, with the release of version 5.0 of the Unicode standard after nearly three years of work, the consortium has taken a step toward it.
The second KDE 4 developers snapshot is now available. This 3.80.2 release includes source from all the KDE modules. Application developers are strongly advised to work primarily on KDE 4 from now on.
Windows Vista brings with it a new era of DRM and restrictive license agreements that aren't going to sit well with even your basic power user and some are looking for an escape route. These changes are making some users question their commitment to Microsoft. The obvious step is to make the leap to Linux. But what's holding people back?
There have been a number of problems with folks upgrading from Ubuntu 6.06 to 6.10 (Dapper to Edgy). I’ve also heard an unusually large amount of invective concerning the process and the end result. Should you be miffed after an upgrade goes wrong and your left with either hours of trouble shooting or a full reinstall? Sure. Before you get overly angry however, let’s all step back and keep a few things in mind.
Lintrack is a new GNU/Linux distribution for routers, firewalls, network access servers and more. It features new approaches to several areas such as system configuration and integration, but has many ideas inspired by traditional Linux distributions as well. I would like to introduce you to the project and provide step-by-step instructions for configuring Lintrack as a simple OSPF backbone router and a PPPoE network access server
Excellent competition forced our editors to make some difficult decisions for the 2006 Editors' Choice Awards for software, hardware and services. In the end, the process was fun, despite the challenge. We hope some of your favorites captured top honors, or if not, managed to get an honorable mention. So, on with the show.
Debian-based live CD distribution Knoppix is widely known as a distro with excellent hardware detection. The latest 5.0.1 version, released in June, builds upon its legacy and continues to improve.
The VLC media player is an open source media player, distributed under the GNU General Public License. It is a highly portable multimedia player that supports many audio and video codecs and file formats as well as DVDs, VCDs and various streaming protocols. It is able to stream over networks and to transcode multimedia files and save them into various different formats.
This new 1.4.1 release contain major bug fixes and several enhancements, such as on-the-fly changing of text and hud size and a new hexen2 dedicated server application. Support for Mac OS X and QNX are also included. All users are encouraged to upgrade.
While the capabilities of operating systems have improved over the last years, the improvements have largely focused on under the hood changes. But the graphical interface of the computer itself is keeping the same concepts introduced with its appearance. One could argue that the graphical environment of computers is exactly the same for the last 10 years and only cosmetic changes take place in newer versions of operating systems. This article describes a solution which attempts to free the user from the files/folder concept.
The quality publishing around Ubuntu these days cannot be ignored. Another excellent book sits here beside me now, pages flagged with many points of interest. I wasn’t anticipating doing so much detailed reading with this one. But before the chapters even began, I found myself interested in learning about the authors and the development style used in putting together this book.
We put a lot of effort into our Linux offerings on our workstations and servers. We work directly with engineers at Intel, Red Hat, and Novell/SuSE on specific client features, such as ACPI testing, suspend-to-RAM and suspend-to-disk, hot plug device bays and docking station support.
I've done a number of reviews of Winamp and have been progressively less happy with it. Winamp is "free" in the sense that it doesn't cost anything — but it is still a commercial, proprietary work. It has gotten slightly more intrusive, slightly more obnoxious, and slightly more bloated with every new version. Of course, the obvious alternative, Windows Media Player, is worse. I thought it might be time to expand my horizons a bit. I decided to try VideoLan's VLC Media Player.
There was a time when publishing content online required fairly good technical knowledge even when the data resided in static HTML pages. Then the blogging revolution happened and the rest as they say is history. Now a days it is possible to publish content online even without an iota of knowledge about the HTML elements.
As nice as Solaris is, though, users accustomed to Linux or FreeBSD found it lacking in several key areas. These cries did not go unheard, and thus the Nexenta project was born, thought with a slightly different perspective: "if only GNU/Linux had a better kernel."
The British inventor of the internet says he is worried about the way it could be used to spread "misinformation and undemocratic forces".
Ars enters the world of Final Fantasy with a review of Final Fantasy XII. Does the latest installment in the venerable series mark a new direction for the franchise or is it more of the same?
The MEPIS distribution has been one of the bigger KDE-centric distributions around for some years now, created to make desktop GNU/Linux easier to use. As part of our KDE and Distributions series founder and main contributor Warren Woodford talks to KDE Dot News about the history and current vision of the distribution.
Jon Hall, president of Linux® International, is a passionate spokesman for the open source community and ideal. In this two-part interview, he speaks at length on the progress and challenges for open source, and on the need to recapture a purer vision of education.
