Once considered to be way too complicated for the newer Linux user, HDTV on a 'Nix box often times felt just out of reach for many. Then we found that hardware designed for Linux specifically was in the works. The card is known simply as the HD-5500.

We recently sat down with Mozilla technology strategist Mike Shaver, who explained the reasoning behind the site's overhaul.

From Brazil to Pakistan, some of the world's poorest children will peer across the digital divide this month -- reading electronic books, shooting digital video, creating music and chatting with classmates online.
By using customized Linux pxe-bootable images and any pxe-bootable machine, including thin clients, and adding a multihead video card, you can make PCs and the fat operating system history.
After upgrading to Feisty, my new favorite feature suspend-to-disk (aka hibernate) was broken badly; basically, the resume would never be found, so it’d act as if it had a corrupted swap partition and unmounted disks.
SLAX is one of our favorite mini Linux LiveCD distributions so when SLAX 6.0.0 Pre 3 recently came out we couldn't help but to try out the new SLAX 6. New in this third pre-release of the SLAX 6.0 LiveCD is the Linux 2.6.20 kernel, bootable LiveUSB support in both Linux and Windows, udev replaces hotplug, full sound support with ALSA 1.0.14, NTFS read and write support, and more.
The declaration by Linus Torvalds and other kernel developers that the Linux kernel will stay under its existing licence - the second version of the General Public License - and the talk being floated by Sun Microsystems that it likes the upcoming third revision of the GPL have led to much speculation that an official version of GNU/Solaris would arrive by the end of the year under the GPLv3.
I wanted to post this just for those who might be considering running Ubuntu Linux. This is from my experience as a desktop user, and day to day activity:
Half Life 2 is a highly popular science fiction First-Person Shooter (FPS) game. It has won numerous awards for advances in computer animation, computer graphics, sound, physics, and artificial intelligence. Half Life 2 has been developed for and it is mainly played on Windows PCs. But recent advances in the Windows emulation software Wine have made it possible to run it on Linux as well.
James Ketrenos announced a new 80211 based driver for the Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network Connection adapter. He explains, "this new driver uses the new d80211 subsystem previously only available as part of the wireless-dev tree."
It's a mixed bag this week from Studio Dave. I'll skip the preliminaries and just invite you to dive in and check out some of the latest news from the ever-expanding world of Linux sound and music software. There's far more going on than I can possibly cover in my allotted space, but here's a quick survey of some recent remarkable activity.
Released on February 10th, 2007. The first tech demo contains two small levels to walk around, no plot. Open Outcast was started out of frustration of Outcast Fans, cause Outcast2 was cancelled.
We’ve been working on a better way to present help to users for the next version of Ubuntu. The result has now been uploaded to Feisty.
I remember installing a Linux distro for the first time back in April 2000. I was shocked with the number of applications that came out of the box. Forward to 2007, and I go buy ‘Linux For You’ and they give Open Suse 10.2 - As expected I was curious.
This tutorial will show how to set samba to allow read-only file sharing for your LAN computers as guest (without be prompted for a password).
Sometimes, we are required to resolve our internal domains on a local nameserver and external (internet) domains on our ISP's nameserver. There are different solutions to this problem, but in this tutorial, we are going to solve it through configuring a combination of caching-nameserver and BIND 9.
I joined Mandriva in 1999, after that Gael Duval asked me if I would like to work with him. I was there during the Internet boost, I was there during the chapter 11, and I will be there till the end of next week...

Downloading the iso was a little difficult to find the right download links. But then I checked out distrowatch who had a link to the iso directly. Ten hours later, it was done. I didn’t see anything different after booting from the cd.
I’ve been using TrueCrypt to encrypt financial and personal documents in Windows for a while now and I knew there was a GNU/Linux version, so it seemed like a logical choice to use for the same purposes in the free world. And now, the blow by blow account…
