First and foremost, keep things "fun" but not circus fun. Keep things cool. Stick with about 3 or 4 colors and gradients of those hues if you can. Don't add too many graphical items, but don't add too few.
As soon as it’s clear that you’re distributing a binary blob that, by your intent, uses anything in the kernel apart from the standard userland system call boundary, you’ve distributed a derivatve work and the GPL terms apply.
As Linux servers continue to pervade data centers at increasing rates, one of the biggest challenges to strike IT managers is getting those servers to work well with their existing Windows systems. Recently, Centeris CEO Barry Crist sat down with SearchOpenSource.com to talk about why the landscape for cross-platform server management is improving .
I'm not writing this to totally bash Linux. It's not that I'm against it, but I just have to examine what my real motivation is. I literally have everything that I need and more with Windows and OS X, so why throw something else into the mix?
The easiest way to sound like a professional when you talk about photography these days is to grumble about the deficiencies of RAW file converters. The ability to save pictures in RAW format rather than JPEG or TIFF is what distinguishes a "pro level" camera from a consumer device. But rather than mentioning your camera's specs outright, the shrewd move is the heavy sigh followed by lamentations about your tireless search for the perfect software to properly manipulate your beautiful work. Let's take a look at how to do it using Linux and open source.
A few months ago I went in search of educational software written for Linux. I built her a machine from old spares and wanted to introduce her to the world of open source software. I was astonished at the amount of open source software for kids out there.
Fedora Core 6 Test 2 is now out after a Xen delay late last month. Among the notable highlights in F6t2 include all packages are recompiled (built using Mock, packages also now have proper BuildRequires), ability to install from additional yum repositories during the Anaconda/KickStart installation, Java web applet from gcjwebplugin, new default font, package updates and upgrades, and Fedora Core 6 Extras. Phoronix has some nice screenshots.
If the first ten days in the aftermath of the launch of SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10, the brand-spanking-new server operating system from Novell Inc, is any indication, then perhaps there is finally some hope that Novell's plummeting NetWare business will not take the company down with it.
Notebook PCs and Linux are learning to get along better than ever before. Linux has come a long way since its initial inception as an academic development project undertaken by Linus Torvalds during his college years. It's no longer the sole province of the enthusiast crowd or just a hobby horse for academia. In fact, this progressive platform has become the poster child for the Open Source movement.
There’s a lot of great distros out there, but Debian just meets my taste. I’ve been using Debian over a year now and this is why I love it: Freedom.
Chip guru AMD has announced that it's going to drop the ATi brand name following its takeover of the Canadian graphics underdog. Gareth Cater from AMD told Custom PC that 'the new company will be called AMD,' meaning that we could shortly be seeing AMD-branded Radeon graphics chips.
Want to protect your SOHO machine or LAN from rootkits and malware, but want something a little more real-time than simply running Chkrootkit or another rootkit detector after the fact? Consider OSSEC-HIDS, an open source host intrusion detection system.
You can verify connectivity or status of your network Interfaces/card using standard Linux command. Open your terminal and use following commands:
I do not believe in the OLPC (One Laptop Per Child) project, a.k.a. the "$100 laptop". I couldn't possibly believe in a "handmill laptop", and I don't believe this is the solution for the 3rd world countries. I very much liked (given the intended audience) the proposed design and some mockups.
The 184.108.40.206 stable kernel is available. There is a fairly long list of important fixes this time around, but none with CVE (vulnerability) numbers attached. More Info.
Linux system vulnerabilities have amplified in monstrous proportion, with perfunctory probes and break-in attempts occurring at regular frequencies. In times where patching itself needs to make good progress, this title from O’Reilly offers some insightful tools and techniques to prevent your Linux server from being compromised.
