Well I have survived yet another day of KDE and I’m still going strong. It’s not so bad once you get used to it I will say that I would not be having such a positive experience if it weren’t for all of your reader comments. I really do appreciate it. I feel a bit like I’m on the other side of the tutorial this week!
Hans Reiser wanted a speedy preliminary hearing on charges that he murdered his wife Nina Reiser, but owing to his attorney's busy schedule, will have to wait at least until March 9 for the conclusion of those proceedings.
Last September, some of the Debian Linux distribution's leadership wanted to make sure that Etch, the next version of Debian, arrived on its December 4th due date. So, the "Dunc-Tank" group decided to experiment with financially supporting some key developers to get Debian out the door on time. Whoops!
We have trouble. After 40 years of development and almost 20 years of commercial use, the Internet is getting clogged up. We have more spam than legitimate e-mail, more advertising than content, and a few not very well-behaved protocols making trouble for all of us. But what's to be done? With tens of billions invested in Internet infrastructure and services, we can hardly shut the darned thing down and start over, can we? Yes we can.
The open source movement is fertile ground for creating advanced tools and technologies -- all at an appealing price. We've scoured the market to find six open source projects that hold promise for your New Data Center architecture.
Getting the NVIDIA Geforce video card working to it’s full potential with Ubuntu edgy requires the installation of an additional glx driver package. The process is simple, however many tutorials make it more complex than need be.
Auth Shadow or mod-auth-shadow is a module for apache (and apache2, sort of) that enables authentication against /etc/shadow. The benefits being that any system user with a password can be authenticated for web_dav, subversion or simply an https server.
With Ubuntu, Kubuntu, and Xubuntu each deploying a different desktop environment (GNOME, KDE, and Xfce respectively), how do each of these distributions compare performance-wise?
To me, Python represents the quintessential free software programming language: its central design values are the ones that are most import for the free software community—clarity and pragmatism. Yes, I’m sure other people have their own pet languages, but Python is definitely my favorite.
Comments made by Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer last Thursday to an analyst conference for the most part went unnoticed until stories this morning cited excerpts from a freshly published transcript of that conference. In one such story, an excerpted partial sentence was interpreted as part of a statement that Microsoft may yet exercise its option to sue manufacturers of Linux operating systems other than Novell for infringement of patent.
On February 12th a new beta version KateOS Live 3.2 was released. I decided to give it a try and share my experience with this nice and modern Linux distribution. I downloaded the ISO image of the LiveCD from the KateOS mirror server, burned it and run off the CD. The first thing I noticed was a nice looking splash screen.
HP is making $25 million by supporting the free Debian GNU/Linux distribution in what may ultimately turn out to be a challenge to commercial distributions from Novell and Red Hat.
Mandriva has moved to open a direct sales channel to the 419 scammer set. Okay, okay. The Linux maker actually pitches its new African headquarters in Lagos, Nigeria as one step toward bridging the so-called digital divide. "The goal of Mandriva West Africa is to provide local distribution of Mandriva Linux and other integrated open source applications in English and French throughout the West Africa region."
Xen, VMware, Virtual PC, Parallel, Qemu. There is enough going on in the virtualization market. Recently I ran into another free player on the market, VirtualBox. VirtualBox might be more to the liking of the true open source evangelists than VMware.
For the uninitiated, creating Debian packages is a mysterious process that looks much harder than it really is. To make it a little less mysterious, let's take a look at two methods of building Debian packages: using standard Debian packaging tools and the CheckInstall utility.
This tutorial is written for everyone: even if you've never programmed before or if you have used other languages and want to expand into C++! It is for everyone who wants the feeling of accomplishment from a working program.
In an earlier post I enthused about how wonderful the Ubuntu 7.04 installation was on old hardware. One single datapoint does not a trend make, however. Others have attempted to install and work with Ubuntu, and walked away from it back to Windows. With that in mind I decided to boot the 7.04 distribution disk on my Gateway M685 notebook and see how it behaved.
This guide will help you to install NTFS-3G in Ubuntu Edgy. Open a terminal.
MAC addresses are often taken for granted, things that nobody thinks about. However there are times when you do need to worry about them. Here we'll demonstrate how to view and change the MAC address of your Debian system.
This weekend, the Free and Open Source Developers European Meeting will be held at the Université Libre in Brussels, Belgium. The schedule for the KDE devroom is now published.
