People seemed to like my article on installing WoW in Fedora, and with the release of the new Ubuntu, I thought I’d write another one. Read on for my HowTo complete with screenshots of the progress (I’m writing this article as I install it!).As I mentioned in my last article, you need to have the drivers installed and working before you do this. First thing to do is install wine.
have an experience on using netcat (nc) as telnet client which I would like to share about this discovery. I have heard few of my friends saying, netcat can be a “hacker” tool, it is also known as “Swiss army knife”. It is true, netcat can transform into a server, a various of tcp client, a port scanner, chat medium, file transfering, remote control etc.
Recently, I took a quick look at the Unix concept of mount points. Performing the mount command is a nice easy way to get access to something on a one-off.
A lot of the time, however, you’ll want to set it up so the system permanently mounts said filesystem - so on reboot, you don’t have to run all of the commands again.
Using PCLinuxOS 2007 TR3 for the last few weeks, I’ve noticed VAST improvements over the .93a release. The most noticable of these is boot times. My boot time is absolutely amazing on this Dell E521n...it averages 30-40 seconds. That’s right. 30-40 SECONDS. I was floored the first time I booted after install. I thought I had done something wrong.
I got overwhelming e-mails asking me how to install properly ATI drivers under openSUSE 10.2. I directed them to different sites, including a reference to one of mine that I wrote for SUSE 10.1, but seems like they are still having problems. Instead of explaining to everyone on an individual basis I decided to make a fresh post.
The linux desktop with the wide choice of Window managers and the ample supply of eye candy is a constant source of envy for Windoze users.
Without images and colors, the linux desktop would not be of much interest to Windows people.
If you have questions about Linux or open source projects, real-time help is often just a keyboard away -- if you know where to look online. Forums, mailing lists, and Googling are all useful when you have questions, but if you really want answers fast, Internet Relay Chat (IRC) is the place to look. If you've never ventured into IRC, here's all you need to get started.
During my years as a Unix Systems Administrator and Quality Assurance Engineer, one of the most indispensable tools in my Unix tool box has been Perl. A Perl "power programmer" I am not, though almost daily I find new ways to incorporate simple (and sometimes not so simple) Perl logic into my work, which results in increased productivity and efficiency.
Ok, so you know grep, awk and sed. You can ls and cd your way anywhere on your computer. You can even eject your cdrom by typing several letters instead of pressing one button. But here's a fresh*,new**, and perhaps even slightly humorous take on several of your all time favorites.
So, you've just installed Ubuntu 7.04, otherwise known as the "Feisty Fawn" release of everyone's favorite (for now) flavor of Linux. You booted the installation disc, looked around the test environment to discover that your hardware was working, and double-clicked the Install icon on the desktop.
