Living in California's Silicon Valley has many benefits, not least of which is exposure to the "next big thing" on a near-daily basis. Yesterday, we discovered that Ubuntu Linux, not content to target first desktops and then servers, is now getting installed on billboards!
A proposal has prevailed to make the open-source DejaVu font project the default used in Red Hat's upcoming Fedora Core 6 version of Linux. The font replaces Vera, a previous font released by Bistream, on which DejaVu is based. Fedora Core 6 is due Oct. 9.
It's that time of year again when the Linux world converges on San Francisco to talk about all things Linux.
And of course all the major players in the Linux world will be there; many have news, and others just have things they want to say about the news to come.
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 Desktop, which is expected to ship later this year, will compete head-on with the recently released Novell Suse Linux 10.
I remember, the first time I was introduced to Unix - Yes my first experience with a POSIX OS was with Unix, more specifically SCO Unix and not Linux - the instructor told us that the real power of Unix was in its accomplishment of complex tasks by splitting them into smaller tasks which inturn are split into even smaller tasks and then assigned to different utilities.
By now you've got the perfect setup for your new Ubuntu 6.0.6 (Dapper Drake) box. You may have even followed the excellent Intrusion Detection and Prevention with BASE and Snort tutorial. And as an added precaution you installed DenyHosts to prevent hack attempts via ssh. But now that you've got your new LAMP server on the internet, how can you tell that your new web server is secure? You test it, of course!
So begins another semester at University. And as I have decided will now be my custom, each Semester I will install a new distribution. Ideally, one that will support the needs of my subjects without too much additional fiddling. It would of course be possible for me to tweak a now familiar Ubuntu, but I was curious to see what other fish were out there in this wide, predominantly blue, sea.
The second Beta for GNOME 2.16.0 is now out. GNOME 2.15.91 marks the API/ABI, feature, string, and UI freeze in the GNOME 2.16.0 candidate. We had used GARNOME with GNOME 2.16.0 Beta 2 and now have some visuals today showing a portion of the improvements in GNOME 2.16.
Peace has been established on at least one front: XenSource Inc. and VMware are working together to improve virtualization in the Linux kernel.
There must be something terribly wrong in the minds of people who design filepickers. My favorite complaint about GNOME being way too dumbed down is the impractical filepicker that doesn’t let you type the path to your file.
Recent announcements from VMware, Microsoft, IBM, and XenSource have caused a sudden increase of interest in server virtualization technology. Virtualization is seen as one possible solution to manage the data centers of the future, but important limitations with the technology are often overlooked.
Demonstrations over the proposed “Software Patent Directive” in Europe (since rejected by the EU Parliament) were sometimes quite theatrical, and involved at least one “naval battle”. Mikko Rauhala created an ingenious way to counteract the influence of large corporations who were promoting the idea that software patents should be allowed in Europe—he collected pledges of money from the public to offer as bribes to politicians. A “Software Patent Violation Contest” was also organised.
Gentoo Linux is perhaps the most-used source-based Linux distribution. One secret to its success is the powerful and handy Portage package management system. While Gentoo comes with extensive documentation covering most aspects of using Portage, the techniques described in Gentoo's handbook and other documentation are not always the most effective ones. Here are some insider tips that can greatly increase your productivity.
Since some people feel that «Frugalware = Slackware + Archlinux», I thought I must give it a try. Oh, the Archlinux part of it is the Pacman package manager, and the fact that Frugalware has a lot more (official) packages than Slackware was a big attraction to me.
Red Hat is on an engineer recruitment spree to boost the support operation for JBoss and drive measured growth for its open source applications business.
This article is from Chapter 16 of a new book published by No Starch Press: Ubuntu Linux for Non-Geeks: A Pain-Free, Project-Based, Get-Things-Done Guidebook by Rickford Grant and covers using your iPod with Ubuntu.
Oreon© is an Open Source monitoring solution based on Nagios. It offers to this monitoring standard a new front end and brings it a panel of new functionalities.
