While running a HTTP server such as Apache, there are a few steps an administrator has to take in order not to get easily hacked. The very basic one is to hide from the outside which software version and operting system version are running.
Too many Linux image viewers are tinged with little annoyances -- they take too long to load, are slow to redraw the display, have limited format support, sport inconvenient controls -- so when you want to settle on one, inevitably there's something to make you utter feh! in general discontent. Good call -- feh is the name of a speedy little viewer that packs in a surprising number of features for its size.
I was feeling daring, so I burnt the experimental Dreamlinux 2.0 XGL Edition to a CD-R, and rebooted. For a minimalistic Window Manager, Xfce has been customised to look very nice indeed.
Boeing has awarded Wind River Systems a contract to embed its version of Linux into a new military aircraft, the company plans to announce Monday along with a new batch of products built around the open-source operating system.
Novell has now announced that their recently launched SUSE Linux Enterprise 10, the next-generation platform for the open enterprise has seen a pretty successful launch.
I read with great amusement a blog entry from Bryan O'Bryan entitled Why I ditched my Mac for Linux and some of the comments (no time to read them all; perhaps later). Instead of leaving a comment there and having it lost in the 100+ comments, I decided to respond here.
I recently got a chance to try out the new KateOS 3.0 alpha and beta versions, and I must say, I'm very impressed. The new release brings a number of improvements, such as OpenOffice.org 2.0.3 included by default, and all of the most recent versions of many applications.
Over the years I have spent as much spare time as I can to get better at writing. I consider myself an adequate writer, not good, but adequate. Suprisingly I recently came across some old Unix tools that run right from the prompt and will not mangle the original text. Diction and style are not grammar checkers but instead, grammar helpers.
One persistent problem I used to face while using GNU/Linux was when I visited sites containing certain flash based games. The games played well but they never displayed the text embedded in it.
In its short but illustrious history the FOSS movement has been accused of being akin to communism. So just the other day as I was considering whether to wear my hammer and sickle shirt, I saw some Microsoft press releases that made me choke on my unpleasant dark rye bread. Microsoft Executive lauds open source? Pardon?
The open-source Linux operating system has made deep in-roads into the servers of large companies, but employee desktop's have so far remained Microsoft's stronghold.
This is part four of the the successful series All About the Apps, reminding us that while KDE 4 development may be fun, to watch to find great apps working today KDE 3 beats them all. This time we report on the Linux equivalent of Cubase - Rosengarden, the great Basket, KPhotoAlbum and the next version of KDevelop.
Team Mobile told us about a cool feature that is likely not documented. In KDE on SLED10, when you mouse over the screen resolution applet’s icon, you can use the mouse wheel to increase or decrease the screen brightness.
As with other Slackware derivatives, obtaining a properly-working PPPoE ADSL connection is not 100% trivial, despite the use of Roaring Penguin's rp-pppoe package.
Lighttpd has mod_cgi module that allows you running perl and other server side programs (cgi-bin).
While all the hoopla was taking place out in Portland at the Eight Annual O'Reilly Open Source Convention (OSCON) this week, some of us noted the ever-so-quiet death of what should have been a vibrant open source project: OpenDarwin.
