There is a certain amount of dread that I get whenever I am in a new place and have some sort of IT problem. That dread stems from the fact that I use Linux, and most of the rest of the planet does not.
The seventh Linux.conf.au continued Thursday at the Kensington campus of the University of New South Wales in Sydney with talks, tutorials, and Open Day. After lunch, I decided to see what Jono Bacon, Ubuntu's Community Manager, had to say about "How to Herd Cats and Influence People."
If you’ve reached the point in your Linux career where you need to build a kernel or tweak the parameters of one you’re already running, Linux Kernel in a Nutshell, written by Greg Kroah-Hartman, a leading developer and maintainer of the Linux kernel, will show you the way.
With the imminent release of Windows Vista to consumers this month, Linus Torvalds, the father of Linux, has claimed Microsoft's latest desktop effort is over-hyped and not a revolutionary advancement.
Late in 2005, my brother needed free, easy to use mailing list software to reach out to some 3,000 fans he acquired while touring the country with his band King Wilkie. I decided to roll my own under the GPL -- partially to give back to the FOSS community, partially to practice new programming techniques, and partially to provide a solution. What I learned may be as valuable as the software I helped create.
One of the major requirements for running Ubuntu at work is that I need to be able to access our department network drives on Novell Netware servers. I thought this was going to be a difficult procedure, but as you will soon learn it is not hard at all.
Despite being a little late, here is the review of the latest version of SUSE by its community - namely, openSUSE 10.2. openSUSE 10.2 is the latest release of the community project, after the somewhat disappointing 10.1 release.
It's no secret that many people in the Linux community dislike Novell's recent Microsoft partnership. To some analysts, though, the deal is a feather in Novell's market cap.
No, I’m not joking! Ubuntu Christian Edition (CE) (based on Ubuntu 6.10, ‘Edgy’) was a horror of an install, probably the worst Ubuntu install I’ve ever seen. Do you want to hear the sordid tale, that ends happily?
THE OPEN SAUCE internet suite, SeaMonkey has just spawned a new version which promises everything but the kitchen sink.
Since I began blogging about open source here at ZDNet I have learned there are two words I can use that guarantee traffic and controversy. SCO. Microsoft.
We sat down with Jack Kelliher, CEO/Founder of the Linux-focused hardware company pcHDTV, which markets, of course, HDTV cards. Jack has turned his love for Linux into a successful company and fills a niche within our community for high-quality multimedia hardware.
Novell has just launched a Vista/Linux comparison site, in anticipation of the Jan. 31 arrival of the retail version of Windows Vista. Unsurprisingly, Novell's site reminds users that SLED 10 (SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop) is already here, and promotes it as the better upgrade for Windows business users.
The Alixe 0.10 RC1 LiveCD is based upon SLAX 6.0 and ships with the Linux 188.8.131.52 kernel, GTK+ updates, and many more updates. It was an interesting time for us to try out Alixe 0.10 RC1 and it brings a fair amount of innovation to the table.
This article discusses the use of XML in SQL stored procedures. Provided are numerous code examples to help demonstrate specific technical points. The examples provided are intended to aid your understanding, and therefore are as simplistic as possible.
The latest release of Mandriva Linux brings some interesting things to the table. In this review I'll cover Mandriva Linux Discovery, a version of Mandriva Linux geared towards newcomers that might not have used Linux before. New in this release is a 3D desktop, 32- and 64-bit versions, the inclusion of Transgaming's Cedega, and LinDVD.
FreeBSD 6.2, one of the most popular versions of the free BSD Unix operating system, is out with new features and updates. It plugs holes and, in addition to the usual route of installing directly to a hard drive this time around, offers a LiveCD that can be used to rescue a broken system.
I wrote this article because I think that it will be useful for the people that are using Debian GNU/Linux as their home desktop and want to connect to the corporate LAN protected by CheckPoint VNP-1/NG VPN server.
An oft-trumpeted home triumph in technology discussion sites is the conversion of friends or loved ones to a GNU/Linux desktop. “I was tired of fixing Windows on my kid's/grandmother's/in-law's computer, so I set up a Linux desktop. They love it! It's so easy to use, and I don't have to do anything to maintain it! No ad-ware or viruses, and best of all, it's free!” It sounds almost too good to be true.... has the free desktop revolution arrived?
Looking Glass is an open source development project based on and evolved from Sun Microsystems' Advanced Development division. It supports running unmodified existing applications in a 3D space, as well as APIs for 3D window manager and application development.
