Yet in recent weeks the open-source community has been thrown into tumult. Software giant Oracle Corp. has acquired two small open-source companies and is in negotiations to buy at least one more. Many experts believe this is the beginning of a broader trend in which established tech companies scoop up promising open-source startups. The fear is that a round of buyouts could undermine the ethos of open source.
This documents my adventure of setting up a spam/virus fighting mail server on Sarge. It is not the most fancy way of doing it, but should be suitable for an environment with not too many users, nor a bunch of road warriors.
Novell reported yesterday that net income for the fiscal quarter ending 31 January 2006 reached $1.8m, down from $396m in the same period last year when the company reported high gains related to a settlement with Microsoft.
The fight for Net Neutrality is for the place we call the Net. The fight against Net Neutrality is for a neutered Net biased toward carrying the next form of Cable TV. But what about the fact that most of us never have experienced Neutrality in the first place?
I preside more than 10 Slackware and Debian servers at a small engineering firm, serving 50 in-house and several external employees. Normal IT services are rendered through the use of Apache, MySQL, PHP, BIND, Squid, Netfilter, Courier IMAP, Postfix, VsFTPd, and Samba. Here's a list of my essential tools.
Linspire Inc. and one of its biggest desktop Linux rivals, Ubuntu, are talking about collaborating to offer Linspire's CNR (Click-N-Run) application download service to Ubuntu users.
In this article, I will discuss the benefits of using a MySQL cluster to corporations that require highly available data, the implementation of basic MySQL cluster using the minimum recommended requirements, and how to enhance the initial cluster to allow for more availability. I will also describe some cluster configuration options and some typical MySQL cluster management client commands for managing a cluster.
Some people might be surprised that the government is only just waking up to the idea that open source is secure, stable and attractive to end users. Better late than never, though.
So you want a cell phone that's also a PDA? Smart phones can make calls, synchronize your calendar with your PC, act as data storage devices, and connect your PC to the Internet. You can use your Linux PC to connect with and even program some mobile phones using some of the following tools.
I found my new license with which I will license everything.
The DWTFYWWI license is my kind of license.
My hope is that this focused list of the basic administration commands will help you quickly become self sufficient and well versed in server use.
The Globus Consortium Journal (http://www.globusconsortium.org/journal) this month features Grid security perspectives from a range of experts from both the open source and vendor community. Highlights include:
Two new reports are warning the governments of New Zealand and Québec of the potential legal dangers of using and modifying open-source software, with one advising that some open-source licences are "highly infectious".
Oh! My aching head.
When I first saw ExtremeTech's Why Windows Vista Won't Suck, I thought: "Aha, sarcasm."
Nope. I was wrong.
They really were saying that Vista is pretty good.
Web-based Distributed Authoring and Versioning (WebDAV) is an often-overlooked protocol that can provide cross-platform file sharing with minimal client-side configuration. This article explains how to configure WebDAV servers on Windows with IIS, on Mac OS X and Linux with Apache, and how to connect using built-in WebDAV clients on all three OSes.
We've brought a new wiki online at http://wiki.samba.org/ for Samba users and developers alike. The intent is to allow the community to fill the gap in dynamic or temporary documentation and other relevant information.
