I guess you all know this: you are connected to your server with SSH and in the middle of compiling some software (e.g. a new kernel) or doing some other task which takes lots of time, and suddenly your connection drops for some reason, and you lose your labour. This can be very annoying, but fortunately there is a small utility called screen which lets you reattach to a previous session so that you can finish your task. This short tutorial shows how to use screen for just this purpose.
Mutt is a great mail client, in large part because it is extremely customizable. You can tweak Mutt's behavior and have it do tricks that are nearly impossible to do with other mail clients -- but it can be a bit daunting to get started with. Let's take Mutt on a short trip to mail client obedience school and see how easy it can be to make Mutt handle mail just the way you want it to.
In case you missed the annoucement yesterday Debian Etch has now been frozen for release. This means that the distribution won't receive automatic updates over the next few days and weeks. Instead only "targetted" package updates will be made.
Blizzard released the latest patch for World of Warcraft on 5th Dec. Recently, a gold farmer revealed that the new patch had a big gold grinding bug.
By now, you should probably have heard about our new product: Mandriva Flash. However, what you might ignore, is that inside the company this product is surrounded by a lot of controversy.
Over the past week, some of the Linux desktop's foremost developers gathered together in Portland, Oregon at the OSDL (Open Source Development Labs) Desktop Architects Meeting to work further on bringing order to the Linux desktop.
Antonios Zografos, an Oakland man who dated Nina Reiser for about eight months before she disappeared, said he became concerned when he couldn't reach her by phone the afternoon of Sept. 3, as they had planned to meet around 5:30 p.m. to have dinner and see a movie.
The companies commissioned a study of 201 computing industry decision makers that found 95 percent of respondents approved of the collaboration.
Zenwalk is a lightweight desktop oriented Slackware based GNU/Linux distribution that aims to be fast and user friendly. It is still quite new, but the growth, as well as the progress of development, has been pretty fast so far. I've taken a hike with the latest release, Zenwalk 4.0, and here's what I can say about it.
You've dabbled in the Linux waters, liked what you've seen and want to give Linux a sincere shot on your desktop systems. Here are some fundamental steps you can take that will greatly improve your Linux experience and increase your chances of actually sticking with Linux as a long-term solution.
The defense attorney representing murder suspect Hans Reiser painted missing mother Nina Reiser as a woman who had been engaging in deviant sexual behavior and whose family has ties to Russian secret police and intelligence agencies.
Also: The 7-year-old son of an Oakland man charged with murdering his wife testified in court today that he hadn't heard his parents arguing the day police believe that she was killed.
Suse 7.2 was my first Linux distribution ever, around five years ago. I was impressed but also had to struggle with all kinds of issues. That was part of the fun. I remember the sales pitch that working with Linux is like working on the engine of a car while it is running. You were supposed to fix things as you went along. Ever since, the distributions became more and more userfriendly.
So a Canadian friend of mine told me of a project up north (not too far north from Seattle where I live) called Vector. I started tracking the project back and noticed they had many of the attributes of Linux I like; XFce, Full working media, Claims of Fast performance and slimmed down instead of bloated packages.
There are several "business," "corporate," or "professional" desktop operating systems on the market today, all aimed at seeping into large corporations that already use GNU/Linux on servers. It's a pretty good plan, and most of the operating systems in this arena are pretty good -- not perfect, but pretty good. Xandros has had such a product for a while now, and it's always been near the top of the list in terms of features and quality. The market is now mature and the products are more competitive, though, and the product formerly known as Xandros Business Desktop, while still a good operating system, isn't keeping up with the industry's pace.
The first stable update to 2.6.19 is out. It has a fairly long list of fixes, a couple of which are security-related. Interestingly, it seems that the fix for the core dump vulnerability, applied in 18.104.22.168, did not really fix the problem; hopefully the 22.214.171.124 version will be more successful.
First impressions are important, and openSUSE 10.2 made a strong enough impression with me that I may be making openSUSE 10.2 my new desktop OS. I installed openSUSE 10.2 RC1 soon after its release in late November, and I've been kicking the tires on the final release since it was made public last Thursday. Here's my report.
Nowdays just about everyone has a scanner. Most business that I know and many private homes with several computers have a network running. All you need is the scanner, a network and the saned daemon.
Solutions Linux / Solutions Open Source 2007, billed as the "biggest professional fair in Europe dedicated to open source solutions," will be held Jan. 30 through Feb. 1 at the Paris Expo. The event caters to professionals dedicated to working with Linux, open source, and free software.
The preliminary hearing for Hans Reiser on charges that he murdered his wife Nina Reiser began today with testimony from the woman Nina Reiser was supposed to meet on the day she disappeared.
