You can almost set your watch by it nowadays: Twice a year, we have a new version of Ubuntu Linux to explore.
April will bring the release of Feisty Fawn, also known as Ubuntu 7.04. (The "04" indicates April; the "7" stands for 2007.) I've been running prerelease versions of Feisty for about a month. In a moment, some notes on what I've discovered. But first, a bit of context and history.
It's funny how you can find yourself transported back, when faced with a set of stimuli. Pick up an old book, listen to a piece of music, or put on a jacket, and sometimes a wealth of memories and feelings can come rushing back. It can be slightly disorienting and it's not always pleasant, but for me at least, it never ceases to marvel.
With this guide I explain how to set up suPHP on a Debian based ISPConfig server with PHP 4. When you have configured suPHP on your ISPConfig server, you are able to run the PHP scripts under the admin user of the website instead of the Apache user.
Knoppix, the famous live Linux CD that practically started the live CD trend, needs no introduction to most people. One of the things that's so great about it is that you can take it with you and boot to a familiar Linux environment on almost any modern computer, without touching the OS that's already installed on it.
I'm proud to announce the availability of Myah OS 3 Tech Demo 1. This is the first test version for Myah OS generation 3. This is simply a live CD showing off the the base system. Myah OS is no longer based or related to any existing linux system. All packages have been compiled by me from build scripts I have written. Myah is now a i686 system.
As the Free Software Foundation prepares to release the third discussion draft on the GNU General Public License on March 28, the question being asked is whether the move to block future deals like the controversial one between Microsoft and Novell will forever doom the license.
The Gigabyte nVidia GeForce 7600GS card came in the mail today, delivered from Newegg via UPS. And just like I'd threatened earlier, I replaced rhea's 9600 with it. When I pulled out the older video card I re-discovered it wasn't a regular 9600, it was a 9600SE. That's a low-end budget card with a 64-bit memory interface introduced in 2003 that I purchased in 2005 on sale.
Given the growing popularity of SabayonLinux, my continued bad luck with it1, and the fact that my dvdburner died this past weekend, I decided to test the newly released Sabayon Linux 3.3 Mini.
Gael Duval, the creator of Mandrake (now Mandriva) and now fired from its own company, has recently released the Ulteo project.

Tuesday marks the one-year anniversary of the ODF Alliance, an international group of organizations dedicated to promoting Open Document format for XML (ODF) as an international standard for document formats.
It's been over two years now since the Free Software Foundation (FSF) started seriously working on revising that key open-source license, the GPL (Gnu General Public License). On March 28, we're finally going to get... the next draft. How late could the final release of the GPLv3 be?
Mid-2007? At least. Late 2007? Quite likely. 2008? Could be. 2010!? I wouldn't be surprised.
When I learned that Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5, which is a big release for Red Hat I've been looking forward to for some time, was coming out on March 14, one of the first thoughts that crossed my mind was, "Great—when's CentOS 5 coming out?"
You might have read my earlier article about moving to OpenSuSe from Kubuntu. I couldn’t resist the temptation to move back to Kubuntu. I didn’t see anything wrong with OpenSUSE, but I wasn’t comfortable using that compared to (K)Ubuntu, so I downloaded the latest Kubuntu Feisty Fawn beta and burnt it in a CD.
The latest code changes and improvements to Samba 3.0.25 weren't overly dramatic, said the project's release manager, but the subtle changes do push things along toward a scheduled production release in early April.
The changes also push Samba 3 along its path toward making Linux machines behave a bit more like Windows, said Samba release manager Jerry Carter.
Offline logon support
In the Talkback section of this blog, my loyal readers routinely urge me to switch to Linux. “Try it!” they say. “Once you do, you’ll never look back.” I’m perfectly willing to try, and indeed I’d love to have at least one Linux machine on hand so I can test interoperability scenarios here. About eight months ago I tried to install Ubuntu Linux 6.06 on a couple of systems here.
Find your application problems early and spot light on code quality. This article will cover some of the various types of automated developer tests you can run with every source code change.
The Google Code Blog announced the release of four open source coding tools yesterday. The announcement is part of an ongoing Google program of releasing infrastructure tools as open source software.
All of the tools are hosted on the Google Code project and are available for download.
A year ago the Department of Homeland Security contracted with Coverity, a maker of a source code analysis tool, to harden open source software. (Stanford University and Symantec are also involved.) Basically, developers at open source projects (not primarily affiliated with a corporation) can submit their code to scan.coverity.com and have it scanned for security vulnerabilities.
One of the most alarming factors for new e-tailers is the cost of some of the commercial e-store software. While you can pay a few extra dollars for shopping cart software when signing up for a hosting account, these plans don't always offer the functionality or design options that fit your needs. This is where Open Source software comes in to play.
