Shane O’Sullivan's Blog: This is one of a number of posts detailing how to install Ubuntu 6.10 (codename Edgy) on a Thinkpad X41. This post focuses on using the amazing music player Amarok.
the pcspy: I'll freely admit that it has been a long time since I've used a pure version of Gentoo. By a long time, I mean I used my friend's broadband to download the "stage 1" Gentoo V1.0 installer. Some five years later, I'm quite excited to revisit an old flame.
Penguin Pete: In a comment appended to the last post, Richard Querin thoughtfully muses: "I'm not so sure they're as evil as you make them out to be." Nor am I. I actually thinks it's mostly stupidity and arrogance on their part.
enterprisenetworkingplanet: The popular DD-WRT project was initially an offshoot of the original Linksys firmware for the WRT54, but has since undergone a complete rewrite, and now uses the OpenWRT kernel. DD-WRT is a fine upgrade for your WRT54 wireless router, or any similar device under other brand names, and there are a lot of them.
Free Software Mag: For me there is nothing quite as relaxing as the sounds of the beach. The slow crashing of waves and the gentle lapping of water in the tide pools really helps me find my inner calm. Of course, I could do without the smell of rotting fish carcasses, the constantly screeching gulls and the looming threat of melanoma. So I decided to create my own virtual beach experience using some free sound clips from the internet and the free software package called Audacity.
LXer: A scant two weeks after Michael Dell returned to the company he founded in 1997, to help repair it, Dell launched its IdeaStorm project and several others in an effort to listen to their customers. The GNU/Linux community has spoken loud and clear. Time will tell how well Dell is listening.
ZDNEt: Sybase and Red Hat have announced an expansion of their partnership which will include the launch of a virtual software appliance that combines the business applications specialist's database product with Red Hat's Linux operating system.
This tutorial will guide you through the installation and configuration of Lintrack, a GNU/Linux distribution specialized in networking tasks. We will give two LANs access to the internet along with DHCP and DNS cache servers, and then we will connect our networks using OpenVPN in bridging mode. You should be running all these in well under an hour, thanks to the unified configuration interface of Lintrack.
Linux.com: The reasons for the closure provide a case study of the problems that small FOSS companies face. They include difficulties in scaling, an inability to compete with large companies, and a lack of the funding needed to develop.
Motho ke motho ka botho: I spent two or three days with it, putting together basic spreadsheets and learning the way things work, and once you get into the swing of it, it’s every bit as functional as Gnumeric (Oleo’s GNU successor) or OpenOffice.org-Calc … or VisiCalc, for that matter.
Red Herring: Google today officially confirmed what many analysts have been saying for months: the Mountain View, California-based search leader is going after the software market in direct competition with Microsoft.
Express Computer: Awareness and adoption among mid-sized businesses is high when it comes to open source. This is indicated by the fact that system vendors are increasingly bundling open source software with their products, ranging from PCs and notebooks to mid- and high-end servers in order to lower the cost of solutions for end-users.
iTWire: Some foolishness appears to be manifesting itself. Once again, Red Hat is making an effort to be all things to all people and this will end up in the dust.
ubuntustudio.org: UbuntuStudio.org is now open for business!! Yes all you crazy kids it's time. Come on in and get it.
SpreadFirefox: We've started a project to define and build a community dashboard to track Firefox adoption. The plan is to publish a full set of metrics and raw data so that everyone has as much information in their hands as possible, to assist with planning and decision making around driving adoption worldwide.
CNN (AP): Michael Dell donated his employee badge, a PC Limited computer from 1985, and a new PC to the Smithsonian.
eWeek: Red Hat officially rolled out at its annual summit here May 10 an online service for North America that delivers pre-configured, fully integrated solution stacks for 14 business applications.
BBC: The Helvetica font is celebrating its 50th birthday. You've probably seen it a thousand times today. Why?
kernelTRAP: In a series of ten patches, Mathieu Desnoyers posted an updated version of the Linux Kernel Markers. Keith Packard announced the availability of drivers for Intel's 965GM Express Chipset.
