In this article Sir John Whitmore, columnist with the daily Telegraph motoring section, looks at a new approach to development. We all face an environmental crisis. Hybrid cars and biofuels might be interim steps in the right direction, but they are not sustainable solutions. Conventional wisdom predicts great technical problems and cost in overcoming these problems. But what about unconventional wisdom?
Life of a Linux user was a lot less stressful back in the nineties. The difficulty of installing and maintaining a Linux distribution ensured that only those who had made an effort to learn the UNIX command line were able to use it effectively. The rest of the population was simply out of the game. Today, things are different.
Nicholas Negroponte's '$100 laptop computer' will cost about $135 (about £70) when available to children in developing countries by the middle of next year, the head of the OLPC (One Laptop Per Child Project) said on Friday.
Mozilla Corporation is confident that its Firefox browser will maintain its security lead over Microsoft's forthcoming Internet Explorer 7.
In a bid to order to prevent the fragmentation of Linux, the Free Standards Group (FSG) is developing and promoting open source software standards including the Linux Standard Base (LSB) and Openi18N, the international standard for Linux.
Linux is the most popular platform for running Nmap. In fact, most Linux distributions actually include Nmap, although it may not be installed by default. Even if your system already has a copy of Nmap, you should consider upgrading to the latest version.
Get the size accurately from postgres local filesystem, i guess there is some sql stuff that can do that, but this little script does the job as well for me.
I used to think that the best first step to explore Linux was through a live Linux CD. Over the course of the last year, my advice evolved. Now through the wonders of virtualization, a new Linux user could boot a live Linux CD without having to actually reboot your machine.
It wasn't more than five or six seconds after Red Hat Inc announced it was acquiring open source Java middleware and application development tool provider JBoss Inc a few weeks ago that the entire IT industry starting wondering what Red Hat might do next. The most obvious thing for Red Hat to do now would seem to be to go farther up the software stack and deliver its own database. But don't count on Red Hat doing that any time soon.
Matt Ettus has the sly smile of someone who sees the invisible. His hands fly over the boards of his Universal Software Radio Peripheral, or USRP, snapping them together with an antenna like Lego bricks. Then he plugs in the naked boards to a USB 2 cable snaking to his Linux laptop.
In a move calculated to expand Carrier Grade Linux's (CGL's) developer and user communities, HP has registered Debian's "Sarge" distribution with version 2.02 of the OSDL's CGL specification, and started a Carrier Grade subproject within Debian.
As the Red Hat-JBoss merger nears completion, JBoss chief - now senior vice president of Red Hat's JBoss division - sat down with CRN senior writer Paula Rooney at the Red Hat Summit in Nashville, to discuss the impact of deal.
VMware has completed an overhaul of its virtualization software, a technology that now seems to embody many of the traits of utility computing scenarios.
So, is there an alternative way of administering a Linux/Unix box remotely that avoids these problems of excessive bandwidth and poor graphics display? Old-time Linux and Unix hands will probably be chortling to themselves already: 'Remote X'.
If you're using Ubuntu Breezy (aka 5.10) or Dapper (6.06) there's a handy script you might want to take a look at. Automatix is this neat thingy that does stuff to your Ubuntu system to make it work better.
If your blog has even one regular reader, you too can be a blog snob. A blog snob is a super-important blogger who knows it and makes sure the rest of the world does too.
There is many options out there to encrypt datas on a hard drive. You could either encrypt a whole partition using kernel filesystem or simply encrypt specifics directories on your hard disk.
encfs along with fuse can accomplish this.
Over time, I’ve learned quite a bit regarding the Linux operating system. `Why` it works so extremely well on servers and desktops. Here is something I've learned along the way; how to set up a Postfix and Apache server.
Sometimes a site has need for easily accessible Perl libraries. Three methods to go about keeping handy Perl code readily available are:
1. Just keep a code repository of functions and dump them into programs on an as needed basis.
2. Write a Perl library with a group of functions in them.
3. Write Perl modules.
I enjoy using many different desktop environments and operating systems. On a day-to-day basis, I use Finder, Explorer, GNOME, and KDE. They all have their good sides, but obviously, they have their fair share of bad sides as well. The next couple of columns will be about the latter. This week, I take a look at whatever bothers me about Ubuntu's GNOME/Linux combination.
