The humble personal computer has a well-deserved reputation as a giant-killer. After all, it was the virus-like spread of PCs which spelled the beginning of the end for the mainframe dinosaurs.
In this article, I'll set out howto install kdenlive, and then talk about its features, and basic usage. As you can probably tell, I'm really enthusiastic about this application. The reason being, that it looks like an application that could be termed the "iMovie" of linux. It has a nice and intuitive interface.
In less than three weeks it will have been a year since ATI Technologies had added it's Radeon X1000 family (R500) support to their Linux binary drivers. When that support was finally added it came about six months after the hardware was actually introduced to the public accompanied by the Windows Catalyst drivers.
At the ceremony for the 2006 Free Software Awards, Richard Stallman presented Theodore Ts'o with the Award for the Advancement of Free Software.
Theodore Ts'o was recognized for his many and varied contributions to free software, including his work on the kernel Linux. His role as project leader in the development of Kerberos.
Previous winners of the free software award:
Or: "The Futility of trying to fit square Windows users into round Linux holes."
Even the best of us blow it sometime, and some of us idiot bloggers blow it every day.
My last post will have a place next anniversary as this year's "What Was I Thinking" award.
Let's start over, shall we? Here's my logic for this idea:
Seriously. I now believe linux is a collective conciousness which has taken steps to punish me on a constant basis. You can take your weak monotheistic religions which offer some abstract punishment in an afterlife and shove them, the LinuxGod is punishing me on a daily basis. For hours at a time.
Commit Digest 51 has been released. Usually it contains a huge amount of interesting information - well, at least for the KDE interested people.
As usual the introduction of the Issue 51 summarizes some important information. For example the Oxygen project finished the transition of their icon names to the freedesktop.org icon naming spec. This means that
Frugalware could be an interesting alternative for Slackware fans, as it contains much more packages than Slackware, and is much more actively developed. But for users wanting a nice distribution without too much effort: forget about Frugalware.
The next stable update to the Linux kernel, Version 2.6.21, is slated to include a new feature submitted by VMware called VMI.
Virtualized operating system instances can enjoy performance and management benefits if their kernels are modified to communicate with the hypervisor under which they run. This arrangement is called paravirtualization.
Linux is by far *not* the first open source "project" I have been around. As a newly minted system programmer 27 or so years ago (geez, I'm old... When did that happen?) I was first involved with a new operating system from IBM called VM/SP. VM/SP was the post anti-trust version of VM IBM created out of VM/370.
There’s quite a bit of speculation going on at what distribution of Linux Dell will choose to put onto its desktops or if they’ll even attempt to put Linux on the desktop.
It’s really simple to login with your username/password combination on the remote machine, but sometimes it can be a better idea to use key-based authentication.
Key-based authentication is where instead of authenticating that you are you with the remote machine credentials, you use a cryptographic key pair.
By default when you click the Open All in Tabs option in a bookmarks folder or a live bookmark, the bookmarks are opened in different tabs replacing the current tab set you have at that time.
ps is a very useful tool to list all current running processes with various info such as CPU usage, memory usage, process status, process id etc.
watch is another good tool to continuously execute some programs in infinite loop. watch allows you to make use of commands such as ps, netstat, lsof into monitoring purpose.
Ubuntu Development team released ubuntu feisty fawn beta on 23rd March 2007 some of them started upgrading their edgy to feisty .If your feisty broken here is the procedure to fix that.
Boot up with a live cd, or ubuntu CD from a different partition.
Mount your feisty drive somewhere in this example i am mounting on /media/feisty
Create a directiory when do you want to mount
Does Steve Ballmer speak for Microsoft on open source? He's the CEO, and he seems to think that open source does not exist, has no right to exist, and can be ground down with lawyers.
Or how about Brad Abrams? Is it Jason Matusow? Should we look to the Microsoft legal team, its executive ranks, or what about the geek standing in front of you on the trade show stand?
Last time, we talked about installing Sugar so that you could emulate the OLPC environment on your system. Now it’s time to explore how activities work on the XO.

Novell is developing an open source implementation of Microsoft’s identity card technology that is functionally equivalent to the Windows software but will run on both Linux and Macintosh.
Oh, my. On the one hand, Mary Jo is reporting that, just as Novell's Bruce Lowry had said, Novell's pact with Microsoft seems to be earning it back market share against Red Hat.http://www.tuxmachines.org/node/14679/edit
If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, Red Hat should be flattered. Less than two weeks after the company introduced RHEL 5 (Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5), StartCom Ltd. released the first RHEL 5 clone, StartCom Enterprise Linux AS-5.0.0.
