There are different ways of sharing files between GNU/Linux and Windows. Mostly we make use of the services of a FAT32 (or FAT16) partition which can be read and written to by both Linux and Windows. The disadvantage of using a FAT partition for sharing files between Windows and GNU/Linux is that you are forced to reserve a part of disk space solely for sharing files.
There is a fair to middlin' chance that GPL v3 will be announced this weekend at the Free Software Foundation's annual associate member and activist meeting in Cambridge, MA.
Yesterday evening, a friend of mine asked me if I know how to install ColdFusion 5.0 on a up-to-date openSuse system. After some fiddling around, I indeed found a way to get it running, but let's start from the beginning:
The main problem is: it simply won't run out of the box because of the following facts:
-openSuse comes with a 2.2.x Apache
I currently use Ubuntu 6.10 Edgy Eft as my primary desktop. As much as I like Ubuntu, it is not without it's faults. Feisty Fawn is the upcoming 2007 release of Ubuntu, and I have high hopes for it and Desktop Linux in general this year. I have even converted one of my dorm mates to Ubuntu when he was impressed with the speed of Linux.
I felt it was time to give my favourite distro (PCLOS) a more thorough review in the light of my decision to change how I review distros. I felt that something as promising as PCLOS 2007 beta 2 deserved the first slot.
The biggest video problem open source developers need to solve isn't with video editing software, but with Internet video delivery, which is currently dominated by Adobe Flash. There are several good reasons why Flash is the most popular method of putting video on the Internet, but Macromedia (since purchased by Adobe) made a horrible decision when it released Flash 8.
Managing processes is quite straightforward with tools like kill and nice, but what happens when you want to provide even finer management control over your processes?
Under the headline "Surprise, Microsoft Listed as Most Secure OS," Internetnews.com's Andy Patrizio writes, "Microsoft is frequently dinged for having insecure products, with security holes and vulnerabilities.
The Desktop Operating System Wars are over and Microsoft won. Microsoft's Windows, in its various forms, is the most popular computer operating system in the world. It ships on over 70% of all new PCs and is projected to remain the number one OS, though in ever declining numbers, through about 2011.
I'm used to doing everything manually when running wireless FreeBSD on older laptops. Running Ubuntu has shielded me from some of the command-line configuration I used to perform on FreeBSD. Linux uses different commands for certain tasks. My new laptop also has a different chipset from my old laptop, so I wanted to see if I could get Kismet working on it.
After many delays, a false start and much effort, the new Mozilla Add-ons site (code name Remora) has gone live and ready to serve Firefox, Thunderbird, Sunbird and SeaMonkey users.
For the past couple of years, Microsoft has been fixated on beating IBM Lotus Notes/Domino in the e-mail server market. But according to a Yankee Group report that will be published next month, the real threat to Microsoft Exchange isn't IBM — it's Linux- and open-source-based e-mail servers.
For the past couple of days I’ve been playing with Ubuntu Server and transparent proxying. What fun!
If you, like me work for a business/organisation which offers free wireless internet to the public (or even if you leave your home network open) you would be wise to keep an eye on what visitors are using your internet connection for.
Red Hat is catching flak from the open-source community over a series of cease-and-desist letters the company's lawyers have sent to independent consultants that provide training and consulting for the company's Hibernate platform.
The Indian market for Open Source Software (OSS) is gaining momentum and it seems that this market will soon mature. A lot of organisations are using Open Source solutions even though they may not be running an end to end OSS solution stack.
f you ask any IT Manager if they would want an operating system that was 'guaranteed' to be available and supporting applications running continuously twenty four hours a day, 365 days a year, then the answer would probably be very simple. However, if you want to measure how much this level of availability is worth to the organisation, then you'll probably get a very different response.
A vulnerability has been identified in Linux Kernel, which could be exploited by local attackers to cause a denial of service.
Novell Inc's head of marketing for Linux and open source has apologized to the Free Software Foundation and the open source community after making misleading statements about the company's financial contribution to the FSF.
