How many of us now use mobile drives such as USB thumb drives or larger capacity external drives? With the cost of media going down it is much more accessible to many of us. Now, the way that Ubuntu and Linux handle these by default may cause your drive to mount in a dynamic location each time you plug it in. This tutorial will outline how to make sure your USB drive or external hard drive mount at your specified location each time.
Some Linux users may already be on their way to download Version 8 of Adobe Reader, formerly Acrobat Reader, announced today by Adobe. Stop that download... there's just one "small" problem! Reader 8 isn't available for Linux.
A TWELVE YEAR OLD mite has been arrested by South Carolina coppers because the lad opened up his giftmas present early. Ho Ho Ho.

Bonager monitors how many reboots are left until your Ubuntu install will automatically initiate an fsck scan on boot up. It will warn you when a scan will be forced on your next boot and will allow you to postpone it.
Linux.com readers might know Kurt Seifried as the author of the Linux Administrators' Security Guide or proprietor of the popular security mailing list. In this interview, he gives his views on how security in Linux has been stacking up and where it's lacking, what users can do to secure their systems, and whether every admin needs to know much about security.
This article describes how to use DHCP to supply information about static routes to the clients on your network. You may want to do this if you have two or more local networks with routers between them. The DHCP software doesn't support this out-of-the-box, but it can be configured to do so without too much effort.
This world is increasingly defined not so much by the PC, as by the things we use when we are nowhere near a PC. The music player. The smart phone. The digital camera. GPS devices. And many, perhaps most, of these new devices can and do run Linux.
XPressLinux is designed to be easy to use and familiar for Windows users. It will install easily over an existing Windows system, allowing the user to access their existing programs & documents.
A great deal of the web is GNU/Linux based: most of it runs on LAMP servers, and some content is created with great tools such as the GIMP, Inkscape and a fancy notepad (or Vi, or Emacs—don’t start). Pen tablets are recognised and used, you have access to effects plug-ins, you can work on bitmaps or vectors (thanks Mr Pierre Bézier! Your name will remain in history). On the other hand, as soon as you want to have your work printed, it’s another matter.
The biggest reason for migrating to Linux is freedom, said Patrick Davila, co-host of an online Linux talk show. Linux is not owned by anyone and is the ultimate community project.
Version 0.5.3 of FreeCol, a free/open-source Colonization clone, has been released. The objective of the game is to colonize the New World.
A version of Vista for "business customers" (whatever that means) came out last week and along with it, we're getting a barrage of 'what's the matter with Linux on the desktop' commentary. The truth is that this 'always a bridesmaid but never a bride' routine is getting a bit old.
The volume of recent articles chronicling the successes of Linux may have led you to believe that it has a lot of momentum. This is true. The data in that article shows that Microsoft’s Windows servers’ revenue grew by 4.6% this year, Linux’s by 5.4%, and Unix’s declined by 1.7%. This means that Linux servers are still a more popular choice than Windows servers while Unix servers are becoming less and less popular.
This year is quickly coming to a close and we are here again with what has become a yearly ritual for Phoronix. Time and time again with each NVIDIA and ATI Linux driver release we thoroughly examine the change-log as well as dissecting the performance changes through our rigorous benchmarking process. Now for this article we are retesting all of the major display drivers released this year to see how they compare as a whole. Without further ado, we present the NVIDIA AYiR 2006!
Virtualization is the hot buzzword these days. Everyone is all excited over this latest, greatest miracle computer cure. It transforms your computing infrastructure into a shiny empire of efficiency and contentment, makes you an IT Hero and it repairs bad haircuts. So what are you waiting for?
I like poking around in KDE to see what I’ve got installed. Yeah, I installed a bunch of applications with OpenSuse and didn’t look at every one of them in detail. The one I thought I’d talk about a little today though is a slick drumkit called Hydrogen.
It's been nearly a year since I took a look an Ubuntu Linux - and I have to say they are on track with a great distribution of Linux. In the past we've looked for software to uproot Windows, and replace aging systems with something more modern. Now with Microsoft Windows Vista to be launched next month to the public - we take a look at, in my mind, the most viable desktop workstation to move to available.
Say you've read all the nice things about OpenSolaris and decided, well, hey, it's time to install and test this open source, free genuine Unix with all these advanced features everyone is raving about. So you dig up a test box, download OpenSolaris, and install it. Or try to... But fear not, the ace Unix geeks at the India Engineering Center of Sun Microsystems in Bangalore, India have created BeleniX.
