Recent studies show Linux taking a large and growing share of the global data center market, as well as making incipient gains on the desktop. Traditional IT deployment, however, doesn't tell the whole Linux story -

A survey of Silicon Valley's chief executives found 14 percent more said their companies added employees in 2005 compared with the previous year, and they're even more optimistic about hiring in the coming year.
HP is stepping up its interest in Linux and has set up a UK centre of excellence for Linux in Reading.
The company is also planning to set up similar centres in mainland Europe and in the US.
Berry Linux, the distribution based off of Fedora Core, has released version 0.67. Inside of this LiveCD is the Linux kernel 18.104.22.168, KDE v3.5.1, Kudzu v1.2.25, hwdata v0.174, and Firefox v22.214.171.124.
The Bourne Again Shell and TC Shell are command interpreters and high-level programming languages. As command interpreters, they process commands you enter on the command line in response to a prompt. This chapter focuses primarily on the Bourne Again Shell, while noting where it differs from the TC Shell.
You can't plan on going to a community show and then an enterprise show and expect a lot of similarities. That said, despite all of the differences, I found quite a few more things in common than I expected.
The founder of the Debian Linux project and of a company called Progeny to commercialize it has taken a new job trying to standardize elements of the open-source operating system.
I have a Microprocessor in my system that can easily handle over 120 million instructions per second. If you like to get real geeky with me, consider this. The Intel processor I'm using is able to calculate the SuperPI number crunching benchmark to one million digits in about 100 seconds. It takes my Pentium 4 system less than two minutes to figure out this benchmark, and the Pentium 4 is notoriously bad at FPU calculations. On a bad day, this beautiful system can do some very serious powered thinking, and at speeds that even ten years ago NASA didn't have in their control rooms.
I needed to run mysql5 on another port on my server
with already 2 mysql servers (3.x and 4.x) on it
and for this i had to do following steps
In one fell swoop, Oracle has drawn a square around the most active and interesting parts of the open source movement--the databases and tools. These are the platforms for applications. Applications are just skins on the database--if you own the database (Oracle) or access to the data (Net Apps) you are in the sweet spot.
IBM has published the following new technical articles, tutorials, and downloads on its DeveloperWorks website. They cover a range of interesting (though not necessarily embedded) technical topics, primarily related to Linux and open source system development.
The ifconfig command line utility is used to get information about a Linux network interface configuration and to make changes to it. The ifconfig utility can be used either to simply get information about network interface configuration or to change configuration, depending on what options are used with the ifconfig command.
Dave Miller, the lead programmer for Linux on Sun Microsystems' Sparc processors, said on his blog Friday he has fired up the open-source operating system on Sun's new UltraSparc T1 "Niagara"-based server. The move is an early milestone in Sun's effort.
Wolvix 1.0.4 Media Edition has reached the beta2 stage as announced on February 13. We took the beta for a test drive and had some mixed results. Tuxmachines still loves Wolvix, but was glad this is just a beta. There is still time to fix the glitches we encountered while testing. Overall, it's still a great little system and this "media edition" is a wonderful idea, but some of the apps need some work.
Mandriva has said that its EDGE-IT subsidiary has won a seat in the NEPOMUK Social Semantic Desktop project, funded under the European Union's Sixth Framework Programme. The total project budget is €17 million, of which €1.8 million are reserved to EDGE-IT. Funding from the EU represents 50% of the budget.
Novell was a sponsor of OSBC (Open Source Business Conference) again this year. I've gone to all three of the annual San Francisco events, and they provide a great snapshot into the state of the open source ecosystem.
Ever wonder how Linux automatically mount all or many of your partitions at boot time ? It does so by reading the parameters from the /etc/fstab file.
The power of open source to re-shape the software market was demonstrated with some force this week. Unfortunately, also on display this week in large doses was the ongoing clash of agendas between Linus Torvalds and Richard Stallman.
I administer servers and networking equipment in a small to mid-size heterogeneous (but 99.44% *nix) environment. I've worked on projects ranging from NIS-to-LDAP migration for authentication, to the deployment of a 164-CPU Beowulf cluster, to writing an extension to a large OO-PHP application. I'm a generalist, but my favorite areas are LDAP (and authentication in general), database design and administration, and automation (a broad category that includes writing tools and code to glue services together). Here are my favorite tools.
VMware is making a free virtualization server for Linux and Windows.. That's simply tremendous news, though I'm surprised by how many people I talk to who don't understand why this is so important.
