Linux may be struggling to gain a foothold in the primary and secondary education market but one Sydney school is setting itself higher grades - all without Microsoft.
The release of a new open-source security package has sparked debate over how many Mandatory Access Control applications Linux really needs, and if more than one would just dilute volunteer efforts.
Well well, the fifth installment of Fedora Core has been officially released. The codename for Fedora Core 5 is "Bordeaux" and among other new features to this release is a new Anaconda installer, Novell mono support, replacement of Up2date with Pirut/Pup, and the beginnings of the Fedora Rendering Project for desktop OpenGL effects. Some of the packages to be included in Fedora Core 5 is the Linux 2.6.15 kernel, X.Org v7.0, NetworkManager v0.6, and GNOME v2.14.0. Continue on as we investigate the happenings with this state-of-the-art release.
Linus has announced the release of the 2.6.16 kernel. A fair number of fixes have been merged since 2.6.16-rc6, but nothing too major.
Despite earlier optimistic predictions by Red Hat executives and others in the open-source community that the work would take just a couple of months, they now say that the technology is still "far from ready for inclusion in the kernel."
Major software updates are always disruptive, and with as many as six separate SKUs for the U.S. market alone, Windows Vista will be no different. It's only natural, then, that Linux vendors should take this opportunity to tout the open source alternative. Novell's latest enterprise desktop packaging of Suse Linux, for one, looks impressive indeed. Don't roll out your tattered old "Year of Desktop Linux" banner just yet, though.
As reported, Fedora Core 5 has made its way onto mirrors in recent days and users were quite anxious to obtain this release. One such user has posted a screencast depicting the great looks and new features.
The Ministry of Education of Georgia plans to introduce Linux OS within the frameworks of the Deer Lap, upon advice by the Estonian experts in 2005.
The Debian release cycle is not only long, but has always three different branches: stable, testing (occasionally frozen) and stable.
But when a newbie goes there for download things, he will also notice symlinks to other names, currently sarge, etch and sid.
I was recently informed of the new release of MyahOS 2.0. I began my download last night and tested the system today. I more or less quoted the developer, Jeremiah Cheatham, when I typed in our announcement. As was said, MyahOS 2.0 is a completely new system rebuilt from the ground up using Slackware Current packages. It features the 126.96.36.199 test kernel and has patched in squashfs, unionfs, and bootsplash. It also sports the latest KDE 3.5.1 with the latest qt and xorg 6.9.0.
Have you ever wondered what Linux is all about? Are you curious to see what everyone keeps referring to? Would you like a gentle and easy way to try out Linux without losing any of your Windows programs and files?
To satisfy high-availability requirements, special-purpose operating systems, sometimes proprietary or self-developed operating system, were used. Live patching is one of the capabilities in version 3.1 of the CGL requirement definition document released in June 2005. This feature enables a process to modify its functions without restarting.
According to one thread on the fedoraforum, some final isos are already on mirrors.

You've probably heard the talk and seen the articles from Linux enthusiasts on how virtually any Linux distro can run rings around Windows. To help clarify things, Scott M. Morris, the editor of Novell's CoolSolutions website, has complied all the key reasons in one handy, bookmarkable article.
