I’ve been a fan of the DD-WRT router firmware for some time. I’ve even done a couple of post about installing and upgrading a Linksys WRT54G with DD-WRT firmware. DD-WRT firmware runs on a number of wireless Linux based routers and provides capabilities far beyond factory firmware, such as VOIP, VPN and advanced traffic control.
Statistics are often the refuge of scoundrels but occasionally they can mean something. A case in point is the paper drafted by David A. Wheeler to advance a simple argument for the use of free and open source software.
Issue #0 is now available for download! This is just a preview issue of whats to come. It contains:
History of Ubuntu - from Warty to Feisty and
Ubuntu 7.04 - Feisty Fawn's New Features
Over two weeks in the making...
Look for Issue #1 towards the end of May.
So my latest endevour has been to find a linux alternative to my standard MS Windows XP Pro installation and I think I found it with openSUSE 10.2. While my linux administration skills are by far greater than they were a year ago, I still know I've got a ton of room to go in terms of every day linux functionality.
I’m currently running the development version of Ubuntu, codenamed Feisty. The final version was planned to be released on April 19th, but this might change since the RC has already been postponed.
There seems to be no official announcement what exactly causes the delay, but I have some ideas, because there are some problems I’m currently experiencing myself:
Version 1.2.4 of Battle for Wesnoth, a GPL'ed fantasy-themed turn-based strategy game, was released today. This is a maintenance release that fixes somes bugs with saved games and tSG should be playable again.
My friend once asked me how you pronounce the word Linux. While I have heard the way it is pronounced from the mouths of numerous Linux users to be certain how you correctly pronounce it, I have felt it would be nice to hear it being pronounced by the father of Linux himself - Linus Torvalds.
“What’s his beef with Linux?” I can imagine some people wonder if I have something against Linux. The first two contributions to Digiplace.nl were quite critical in tone. Well, to clarify one thing: I have nothing against Linux. On the contrary, I would take any opportunity to promote Linux among Windows users.
This is my guide on how to install ubuntu on a partioned Hard Drive or another Hard Drive.
First, you will need the ubuntu LiveCD, available here>>
get the version that best fits your computer and your needs.
Here we will emphasize on Ubuntu 6.10 Edgy Eft.
One of the hardest things for users of other platform to understand is that GNU/Linux does not have a single graphical display. Instead, there are dozens, ranging from basic window managers that control the look and positioning of windows in the X Window system, to complete desktop environments with a wide variety of utilities and specially designed applications.
I would take a break from the regular broadband bashing and instead focus on the new imminent release of Ubuntu Linux, code named as Feisty Fawn. With cutting edge software, Ubuntu’s version promises to be better than ever before by incorporating huge support for Wireless networking cards, on demand installation of codecs and Windows migration tools.
this is a bit of a trick I stumbled across a few days ago. Konsole, the kde terminal application allows you to drag and drop files into it. When you drop the file, you can do a number of useful things with it. This is a very quick howto, highlighting this feature.
SO HOW DOES IT WORK?
In this article I'll help you get started with GnuPG, the GNU Privacy Guard. Instead of writing another GnuPG manual, I'll teach you how to generate your first keypair, sign/verify files and encrypt/decrypt files.
If you don't know what GnuPG is, this description from the official website will clear things up for you.
I have been using open source software since the beginning of 1995. It was about Linux (starting with Slackware, after an initial apprenticeship with SLS), then some FreeBSD and NetBSD, to continue with several Linux distributions. What a choice!
Chris Cornish is not your typical teenager. While other young people are finishing high school and hanging out with friends, 16-year-old Cornish is the systems administrator for a national Internet service provider (ISP) and network integrator, Perth-based Corporate IT Centre.
One thing must be said from the start: Microsoft Vista is a modern operating system that offers a variety of genuine improvements over Windows XP. On top of that, Vista also looks much spiffier than its predecessor. Even so, there are a variety of reasons not to blindly reach for Vista. A consideration of the alternatives is in order, and Linux is at the top of the list.
Ghost is a popular software in the Windows world for creating full backups of your PCs contents and helps in restoring individual files or the entire hard drive. One of the popular ways of archiving or creating images of Linux filesystems is to use liveCD distributions and tarring the entire contents.
But first, some motivation. Why use a sound server these days? Doesn’t ALSA work now? Well, there’s 3 main reasons to rig up PulseAudio:
There are lots of ways in which Linux applications can be tweaked to your personal taste. Here's one of my favourites...
In my quest for the ideal computing experience, Ubuntu is the winner. I’ve been switching between Windows XP, Windows Vista and Ubuntu [Feisty Fawn]; all in all, Ubuntu takes the cake for many reasons. If you are interesting in learning more about Linux then continue reading.
