Linux Bible 2007 Edition: Install/Run 10+ GNU/Linux Distributions

Filed under
Linux

The Wiley book, Linux Bible - 2007 Edition, by Christopher Negus, the author of popular book Red Hat Linux Bible, got at least one thing right: it gives the reader an option to select one of many GNU/Linux distributions available today according to his or her requirements/taste.

The necessity of sticking to a distribution just because it happened to come with the a “Red Hat Linux Bible,” “Debian GNU/Linux Bible,” “The Official Ubuntu Book”, “Linux Made Easy” and plenty of other such GNU/Linux books that the user happened to buy in search of a ‘linux book’ is present no more. This book covers the installations of over a dozen GNU/Linux distributions and includes all of those distributions on the DVD & CD that come with the book. The distributions covered by the book include:

1. Fedora Core
2. Debian GNU/Linux
3. openSUSE Linux
4. KNOPPIX
5. Yellow Dog Linux
6. Gentoo Linux
7. Slackware Linux
8. Freespire
9. Mandriva Linux
10. Ubuntu Linux
11. Coyote Linux Firewall

Subuser uses Docker containers to deliver desktop apps for Linux

Distributing desktop applications for Linux has long been a headache, in large part because apps have to be repackaged for each Linux distribution. And while an app-containerization technology like Docker makes it easier to bundle and distribute apps, it wasn't really designed for distributing desktop applications. Subuser is a new application-packaging system that allows Dockerized desktop apps to be run as if they were regular Linux applications. It provides just enough permissions to allow the Dockerized app to interact with the local system -- for instance, to work with the X11 display server -- while still keeping it locked down. Read more
