Over the last few days I’ve had several occasions to use single user mode to change a password for users on Ubuntu boxes. I’ve also used this once when a fellow tech messed up the sudoers file via a typo, essentially allowing no one to have sudo access!
I'm trying to discover why three out of three of my selected hard-disk recorders refuse to work on my Debian Etch (Demudi) system. Once again I ask myself the relevant questions: Is it me ? In this entry I'm going to introduce two audio-optimized Linux distributions, Apodio and Dynebolic.
MandrivaLinux (formerly MandrakeLinux) will shortly introduce a new round of releases for its Corporate Server, Corporate Desktop, and PowerPack Edition GNU/Linux distributions. While preparing to review these operating systems I sent some interview questions to Mandriva's CEO, Francois Bancilhon.
This is a quick guide to some not so obvious command-line options available in the Linux netstat command. I hope you enjoy it.
In this article, we'll discuss the most important issues to watch for when you're making the leap from IE to FF in a managed desktop environment. Some of these issues may pose serious problems if you are heavily dependent on IE or if you want to use Windows-specific features, such as centralized management through Active Directory.
Flash Player 9 for Linux made its public debut (finally) at a controlled demonstration during a conference. Meanwhile, a number of people have suggested ways that Ubuntu Christian Edition will work for its users.
If you are running Mac OS X or Microsoft Windows, you have access to many different animation applications, ranging from Adobe Flash to Anime Studio. That is not so for Linux. While many think of animation in Linux as a lost cause, there are alternatives.
As much as I love the 3D Compiz/Cgwd, there is one thing I can do without: Wobbly menus. Here's how to turn off this behavior in the most recent installation of Compiz.

Tonight in the two-weekly People Behind KDE series we are featuring Allan Sandfeld Jensen. He is a KDE core developer, mostly active for KHTML and KDE multimedia. After reading the interview you will know what his personal "carewolf" looks like, together with all other personal things you have to know about this developer.
Does an OS have to be as costly or even more than the hardware on which it runs? This seems to be the question that I am forced to ponder myself again and again. When I open the day's newspaper, I am besieged by ad after ad offering to sell PCs at bargain prices, some of them as low as $250.
If there was one commonality to describe the "hardcore" users from all three computing platforms, it would have to be the fact that many of them spend too much time making excuses for their OS' inadequacies. When they're not doing this, they're hard at work poking and prodding their least favorite columnists.
A Linux-based NASA lunar rover is on maneuvers -- and Internet webcams -- this week in the Arizona desert near Meteor Crater. The K-10's maneuvers are related to a NASA project tasked with building extra-vehicular activity (EVA) hardware and developing EVA procedures for planetary surface exploration.
If you have an old PC lying around (or even a brand new one), this may be the time to give Linux another try. Yes, I know, you expect Linux, the free operating system developed by volunteers worldwide, to be nerdy and hard to use.
Sometimes I wonder what separates the geeks from the non-geeks. I’ve always assumed I fell into the geek category based on my job and the hours spent with computers on my own time. But, after reading Ubuntu Linux for Non-Geeks, I must not be much of a geek because I found this book to be quite interesting!
Major open source projects like GNOME, KDE, Ubuntu, Fedora, Debian, and Apache all have something in common -- they all have Planet feed reader sites set up to aggregate developer blog feeds. The Planet software was developed to power Planet GNOME and Planet Debian, but now it's being used by dozens of open source projects. With just a few simple steps, you can set up a Planet aggregator to watch your favorite blogs or to help publicize your favorite project.
THE FOUNDER Web browser outfit Flock seems to have quit the company and headed off in search of pastures new. Bart Decrem has stepped down as CEO and is looking to build another company.
In many ways, an open source project is just like a business. There is a product - admittedly one with a price tag of zero - serving customers; ideally, the managers, aka project leaders, would like more people to use that "product". So doesn't this imply that those in the open source "business" should be blogging away just like their commercial brothers and sisters?
While many distributions already have Java installed, several don't. Installing Java in Firefox or Mozilla is really quite an uncomplicated process, but can look daunting to a Noob.
If you're using the unstable or testing distribution of Debian GNU/Linux you will almost certainly have noticed that apt-get uses daily-diffs for its package updates. In many common situtations this is more bandwidth efficient, however it isn't always appropriate.
