Ah, sadly, you can’t use streamripper. Most radios use Windows streams, so we’ll have to use Mplayer to record it.
IDG's East Coast Linux gathering is now officially called the LinuxWorld OpenSolutions Summit (LWOSS). The inaugural 2007 version of the renamed conference was held February 14 and 15 in the conference area of the Marriott Marquis hotel in Manhattan, not in a huge convention center.

Without a doubt, the topic wasn't on the official list of conference tracks at LinuxWorld OpenSolutions Summit 2007. But among IT managers and developers who braved icy winds and snow to trek to the two-day show in New York City, talk was in the air over whether software emerging from the open source tradition is really any better than other software.
I was in a meeting at my company where we did the usual introductory hand shake followed by a frenzied tossing of business cards on to the table for exchange. For once in our lives we could forgo all of those self-aggrandizing titles and meet people with cards that say it like we know it already.
It appears this old argument is flaring up again. Christian Schaller suggested Linus Torvalds should try using Gnome for a month and then report back on his experiences. Inspired by this I've decided to take up the challenge – all be it in the opposite direction.
This tutorial will show you how to set up a serial console on a Linux system, and connect to it via a null modem cable. This is quite useful if your Linux server is in a headless configuration (no keyboard or monitor), as it allows you to easily get a console on the system if there are any problems with it (especially network problems, when SSH is not available). In the end, the GRUB menu will appear over the serial link, as will the bootup messages (output when booting the system). I am using Debian Etch on the server and Ubuntu Edgy on my client, although this should work on any Linux distribution.
Last week I released openSUSE 10.3 Alpha1 and installed it on my laptop as well. There are not many user visible changes in the system, in most cases it looks like 10.2. But under the hood a number of changes have been done that will everybody:
FOR THE CONSUMER desktop/laptop market, Linux has been a non-starter. Sure, you can find many many different flavours of Linux available online, but you can't go to the local Big Box store and get a PC loaded with Linux on it.
When something goes wrong with your Linux-based system, you can try to diagnose it yourself with the many troubleshooting tools bundled with the operating system. Knowing about these tools, and how to effectively use them, can help you overcome many of the common problems on your system. Here's a list of some of the weapons in your arsenal against Linux problems.
The writer of the blogging engine called Forest Blog spotted the pirate hunting outfit MPAA was using his work and had completely violated his linkware licence.
If you've installed a Debian package upon a machine, but lost the binary archive, then it is difficult to copy that package to another machine. Thankfully is a simple solution for recreating a Debian package from an installed system.
Red Hat Inc’s chief executive officer has said the company is encouraging customers to adopt Microsoft Corp’s offer of support vouchers for Novell’s Inc’s rival Linux operating system in order to get the issue over with.
Okay hold onto your hats, our final list is now ready: here are the All-Time Top 150 i-Technology Heroes according to SYS-CON's globe-girdling network of editors, columnists, commentators, and (above all) readers. The list includes Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, and Linus Torvalds.
Sony has been telling us for a while now that the PlayStation 3 is more than a game console, it is a computer. They tried this with the PS2 as well, when they released the Linux Kit for PS2, however, they built the PS3 with Linux in mind.
Is Red Hat doing enough to reassure its customers that it remains focused on what it does and can stay ahead of its growing number of competitors?
Sabayon comes in 3 flavors: X86, X86_64, and Mini. The first two are DVD images, the last is one CD. I chose the last option since I have limited bandwidth. From what I gather of their website, Sabayon is based on Gentoo but offers a compiling-free install. This piqued my interest.
The current stable version of Debian GNU/Linux has been updated to include all recent security and bug-fix patches. This update mainly adds corrections for security problems to the stable release, along with a few adjustment to serious problems.
