Filed under
SUSE

Matthew Aslett: Just hours before it was due to announce its financial results for the fourth quarter and full year 2007, Novell has postponed the announcement pending a review by the Securities and Exchange Commission. The SEC’s concerns, it appears, relate to the company’s previous financial results.

OpenSUSE 10.3: Preliminary thoughts

Filed under
SUSE

iandefor.wordpress: I don’t often try a new distro seriously, but recently I felt the itch and downloaded OpenSUSE 10.3 and installed it on my laptop. The first thing that strikes me is how well-integrated the artwork is. OpenSUSE has a mostly consistent, good-looking theme throughout.

A Look at openSUSE 10.3

SUSE

Linux Online: Just a little over a month and half ago, Novell released their free community-developed version of SUSE Linux, known as openSUSE, version 10.3. I downloaded the DVD image and took my time to evaluate this offering of one of the more well-known Linux distributions.

openSUSE goes live

SUSE

linux.com: openSUSE is one of the most popular free-software-only distributions, and it's jointly developed by Novell and members of the community. In the first week of November the openSUSE developers released installable live versions of the distro's latest 10.3 release, one each for KDE and GNOME desktop environments.

GNOME and Novell: The FUD Stops Here

Filed under
SUSE

perkypants.org: As a result of some confusion (and sadly, some very active, ugly and offensive muck-raking) in various sections of the community recently, I thought it might be interesting to do a review of GNOME’s relationship with Novell and some of the people involved in that relationship.

20-Way Radeon Comparison With Open-Source Graphics For Steam On Linux Gaming

When it comes to Linux gamers wanting a discrete graphics card backed by open-source drivers, the only solution right now to truly recommend for those serious about performance and making use of the hardware is really AMD Radeon graphics. While Nouveau has been making much progress, until re-clocking and other issues are worked out the performance can be unbearably slow depending upon the particular graphics processor or run into other problems. (Of course, when talking about proprietary graphics drivers on Linux, the story is entirely different, or if considering integrated Intel HD Graphics.) For those pursuing a AMD Radeon GPU for their own Steam Box/Machine build and hope to use the open-source Gallium3D drivers, here's some Steam on Linux gaming benchmarks from almost two dozen different GPUs.

Ubuntu 14.10 Beta 1 (Utopic Unicorn) to Arrive in a Couple of Days

"So Beta 1 is this week and I'll be taking care of the builds and paperwork. Could participating flavours please get in touch here or on IRC? In the mean time, I'm going to assume a participation similar to Alpha-2 and configure cron, propose-migration and the tracker accordingly, then build a first candidate for each of your flavours," wrote Canonical's Stéphane Graber.

Optimize your Linux rig for top-notch writing

I'm a big fan of Scott Nesbitt's writing, which has a technological bent, but is usually more about working effectively, rather than how tools can make you effective, which is a key distinction. Scott's setup reflects his focus on production rather than tweaking. He has his work tools and everything else is pretty much white noise—which is why LXDE/Lubuntu probably makes a lot of sense for his workflow. It's simple and it stays out of his way. Scott also gets bonus points for moving his family to Linux. That's a tough move, but given that his wife stole his ZaReason laptop, the conversion seems to have taken. Read more

IBM meets demand for Linux with training resources

IBM HAS REAFFIRMED its commitment to Linux with the announcement of an extension to Power Systems Linux.

This will enable Linux systems to better use IBM's Power8 parallel processing and advanced virtualisation. Read more
