shift+backspace: Recently there has been plenty of news regarding the alpha releases of the next openSUSE release, 10.3. While I will be taking a look at the Alpha 5 or Alpha 6 release in the near future, many users have requested a review of openSUSE 10.2.
gnomejournal: Stefan Kost describes GStreamer features that have been implemented and that are in the works, and he steps users through setting up an example with which to play.
Peter P. Parker: This is a guide on how Linux and especially the KDE desktop could revolutionize the world of computers and operating systems and bring a major breakthrough so Linux would go mainstream.
Alan Zeichick Weblog: If the Linux community has a hero other than Linus Torvalds, it’s Mark Shuttleworth, a dot-com gazillionaire who started the Ubuntu Project, and who funds it out of his own pocket.
financialexpress: The world of corporate computing seems to be preparing for a paradigm shift. Free and open source software movement claims to be making fresh inroads into corporates. Microsoft has also upped its ante, claiming lower cost of ownership and the patents open source software violates.
Groklaw: A Groklaw member who attended last week's Second Annual Open Source Summit in Boston has written up a report for us. He describes what each panel or talk was about, so you will know which you want to listen to.
kdedevelopers.org: In case you missed it, Gwenview has moved to kdegraphics. The KDE4 port of Gwenview is more a rewrite than a port, at least from the user perspective. It's already usable in its current state.
jonas.io: I have notebook with a Intel HDA soundchip, it was not fully supported by the alsa 1.0.13 drivers that came with openSuSE 10.2 and no updated RPM’s was available. so I manually had to upgrade them to 1.0.14.
A week ago we announced our intention to pull together what we (in those ancient days), termed as “LASnix” (aka “Linux Action Show *nix”). We’ve also decided on an official name for the project, that being “Jupiter.”
tuxvaio: As with the installation of SuSE 10.1, installing Mandriva 2007 was frightfully simple. All devices worked with the sole exception of the wireless functionality of the Centrino. This can be fixed by a software download or a inexpensive Linux compatible PC card wireless adapter.
FOSSwire: Partitioning your hard drives is rarely a fun business and oftentimes can be a real pain to do. Thankfully, it’s a lot easier than it used to be to slice up and mess around with your drive.
freesoftwaremagazine: One of the things I hate about Windows is that there is no good way to kill frozen processes. Theoretically, you type Ctrl-Alt-Delete, wait for Task Manager to pop up, and kill the process. GNU/Linux users don't have this problem. Here's how to end processes using the terminal, a few GUIs, and even a first person shooter.
Yet Another Linux Blog: I originally intended this post to be a review of 2007 Final for PCLinuxOS. However, after finishing it up, I realized that posting a review wouldn’t have the desired effect of truly showing off PCLinuxOS to everyone. It would just be a “business as usual” type of post. So, I decided to do a analysis on what I feel sets PCLinuxOS apart from many Linux distributions.
allaboutubuntu: A few hours after setting up my new Dell Ubuntu PC, my wife jumped onto the system. You know her kind: She is an Apple Mac OS fan who uses Windows — but doesn’t really like Windows. So, how did she do with Linux?
ITtoolbox Blogs: Recently I found that Dell has partnered with Canonical to offer the latest version of Ubuntu (7.04) with the sale of new Dell computers. (See Dell Sells Computers with Ubuntu & 100th Entry!) This piqued my interest because of the hoops I had to jump through to get my Dell Intel Pro Wireless (IPW) 2200bg card to work with Fedora Core 4. My theory is that Ubuntu 7.04 should be incredibly easy to install and configure on my Dell laptop. So I put my theory to the test.
The Gnome Journal: Paul Cutler interviews Ken VanDine, founder of Foresight Linux, on building images for the recent GNOME 2.18 Live Media release. Ken discusses his goals in helping create new GNOME Live Media, the tools he used in putting the different images together, and his plans for future GNOME Live Media releases.
Phoronix: At Phoronix we are constantly exploring the different display drivers under Linux, and while we have reviewed Sun's Check Tool and test motherboards with Solaris in addition to covering a few other areas, we have yet to perform a graphics driver comparison between Linux and Solaris. That is until today.
kernelTRAP: Following a recent patch that translated Documentation/HOWTO into Japanese [story], a new patch offered a translation of the same document into Chinese. Li Yang noted, "Language could be the main obstacle. Hopefully this document will help."
Ubuntu Geek: Setting up a computer to share its internet connection should be easy.After all, you’ve successfully networked your computers together and even shared files with all your home computers, so why not the Internet?
Ye Olde Blogge: Everybody knows PCLinuxOS is radically simple, right? And it is. It's one of the best Live CDs around because it has all the non-free codecs and plugins installed by default, it's easy to install on the harddisk, and it doesn't require much configuration afterwards – unless you are one of those people that like to configure, tweak and personalize their OS to the point of turning it into a new distro.
