Tux Machines (TM)-specific
Almost a month ago I attempted an install of Gentoo using Kororaa and it didn't quite go as hoped. About a week ago Chris, of Kororaa, writes to mention that he released Beta2-r1. He stated that he was finally able to find a machine that would reproduce my error and thought he had fixed it. He asked if I could test it, and I apologize for the delay, but today I finally did. So, what happened this time?
Kat is purring louder than ever, and folks are hearing. Not long ago Kat was a new technology brought to my attention by being included in a beta of the last Mandriva release. Not much later I interviewed Roberto Cappuccio and found out much more about him and his exciting project. Recently an article by Roberto was published in one of the largest Linux magazines in existence today. Now Robert Cappuccio celebrates a new site, a new logo and fund raiser.
For seasoned IT citizens (i.e., senior managers and executives) it must be quite a show. Many can sit back and say, "Yup, I remember my AT&T Unix teen years. They were wild and exciting, but we sure are glad we got through them alive."
SitePoint Pty. Ltd., provider of fun, practical and easy-to-understand content for Web professionals, today announced the release of ‘Run Your Own Web Server Using Linux & Apache’.
The problem: the filesystem on my Unix workstation was a mess. I couldn't find anything without grepping all over creation. About half the time, I'd actually find something useful. Usually I'd get no hits at all, or I'd match something like a compiled binary and end up hosing my display beyond belief.
DSL 2.1rc2 was released on the 13th and with it comes a few more enhancements, but still no wireless for srlinuxx.
I thought now was a good time to talk about the differences I perceive in the two companies, having worked at the one and talked extensively with the other. In no particular order....
A few weeks back, my friend Tom asked me a question regarding Linux - that is - Which is the best Linux distribution of them all.
I recently wrote an article about my new laptop. In that article, I mentioned that suspend to RAM just doesn't seem to work. I had seen this website before about Ubuntu on an Inspiron 9300 and tried the suggestions for getting suspend to work...to no avail. Recently, though, I tried it again and it worked.
IBM has elevated Linux vendors Red Hat Inc. and Novell Inc. to highest-tier partner status by making them members of its Strategic Alliance program.
The move will make it simpler for clients to acquire open standards-based Linux hardware, software and services.
There has been a lot of confusion lately as to what's going on with the end of Linux support on the WRT54G and WRT54GS line of routers. Hopefully I'll be able to describe what's going on, what's changing, what's coming, and what you can do about it.
This is a more in-depth look at the fascinating interchange between Linus Torvalds and Chris Blizzard on the Desktop Linux (public) mailing list concerning user-interfaces.
The vice president of the dominant Linux supplier in China says government support is creating opportunities for desktop Linux to grow. Zheng shared some of his views on Linux, open source and China's IT future in a rare, candid interview with eWEEK senior editor Darryl K. Taft last week in Beijing.
Linux creator Linus Torvalds has stepped into a desktop war, expressing a preference for the K Desktop Environment over GNOME, and accusing the developers of the latter project of being "interface nazis".
Some observers contend that all the kinks are triggered by Korea’s heavy reliance on the proprietary Windows software. Instead, they argue the country should promote the use of open-source programs like Linux.
