The worldwide database market grew 8 percent last year to US$13.8 billion, with Linux and Microsoft SQL Server seeing the strongest momentum, according to new Gartner research.
Available in fetching orange and yellow, or shades of blue and green, here's the $100 laptop, which was unveiled at the Seven Countries Task Force Meeting yesterday. Almost immediately, pictures of the machine hit the net.
There is an article at nixCraft on Connecting a Linux or UNIX system to Network attached storage device. The article itself is a good one, except for the part about iptables firewall rules to permit FTP and SMB/CIFS traffic between the Linux client and NAS. The errors are common misconceptions, so I thought I'd mention them, and show the standard iptables usage.
Round robin DNS is a leading technique for providing a high level of availability of some service (typically http/web site) and for providing load balancing.
OK. I admit it! I did not read every page of Understanding Linux Networking Internals. But I have read many of the thousand pages and looked at every one of its 36 chapters. It's a lot of stuff. And the overwhelming portion of Benvenuti's work is very good.
Security is a process, not a result. It is a process which is difficult to adopt under normal conditions; the problem is compounded when it spans several job descriptions. All the system level security in the world is rendered useless by insecure web-applications. This article will cover installing, configuring and hardening free software web servers and associated software.
Well, despite my hesitation, it looks like moving to a new host from my home based server might be a good idea. I received less than a 100 votes, but most said it was somewhat to quite a bit faster with a few stating about the same. No one reports slower response time.
It was only last month that ATI had unveiled its Radeon X1000 series support under Linux. On that April 12 launch, Phoronix was there with coverage, and a handful of articles that had looked at its performance and various features. As was hinted at in those articles where the TV-out support had seized to exist, we mentioned that ATI would be bringing this support back in an upcoming release, as well as other features. Well, today is the day. ATI's fglrx 8.25.18 display drivers bring yet another handful of new Linux features to the table, and we at Phoronix have you covered.
Novell released SUSE 10.1 -- the distro once known as OpenSUSE -- this month after an extensive public beta that went through five public and two closed release candidates before being deemed worthy. Here's my take on the final version of SUSE 10.1.
Mozilla, maker of the open source Firefox web browser and Thunderbird email client, says a reliance on proprietary technologies is still an obstacle for IT directors looking to deploy open source in the enterprise.
For many IT professionals it makes sense to work with both Windows XP and Linux.
On the other hand, Linux is stable and the Linux community provides you with free high-quality Open Source software.
They waited in IRC. They waited by their inboxes. They waited for Google to accept them.
And nearly 1,800 applicants of Google's Summer of Code 2006 finally got word their projects were accepted. Then came the rude awakening.
A surge in IT spending among small and medium-sized businesses is raising hopes among freeware advocates that a flurry of new open source products will spur the corporate use of Linux.
SecurityFocus has a vulnerability advisory about an issue with the GNU strings command and a potential Denial of Service attack. If a file contains certain character strings, the string command will crash due to a failure to properly handle unexpected user-supplied input.
The problem with writing and editing on a computer, versus having words on paper, is that it's usually hard to compare text from different sections of a document when they don't fit on the screen together. One way to do it is to use Vim's viewports feature. Another is to "fold" the text. Using Vim's folding features, you can tuck away portions of a file's text so that they're out of sight until you want to work with them again. Here's how.
Cache is not shared between widgets and pages opened from widgets.
Fixed Bittorrent downloads on Unix.
Fixed crash that could occur when exiting pages with Flash 8.
Fixed IPv6 on FreeBSD.
Fixed session handling for widgets.
In the early morning hours of May 3, a dramatic piece of news out of Geneva began caroming through the online world: At long last, Microsoft's lock on the $9 billion office-application business was facing a challenge.
