A U.S. Army supercomputing center with a legacy that dates to the first large computer, the Electronic Numerical Integrator and Computer (ENIAC) launched in 1946, is moving to Linux-based clusters in a major hardware purchase that will more than double its computing capability.

MySQL is a robust, lean database ideal for use on the web. In fact many of the forums and blogs use this database to store and manage the content. Here I will explain how I set up the MySQL database on my machine.

Dreamlinux is a Brazilian distro based on Morphix and comes with the XFce4 desktop. Dreamlinux 1.0 Studio edition was released yesterday so we took it for a test drive today. Available in English and Portuguese, it defaults to English and offers one of the prettiest implementations of Xfce I've seen. How else does DreamLinux distinguish itself from Morphix or the others?

A New Breed of Puppy: Grafpup Linux 1.0.2

Filed under

Reviews
-s

Grafpup is a tiny distro based on Puppy Linux focused moreso on graphic applications. It comes in a 75 mb download, similarly to Puppy, but it has taken out some of the general purpose, games, and multimedia applications and added more graphic apps. We test drove the newest version, Grafpup Linux 1.0.2, announced just today. Aimed at the professional graphic artist, most applications were quite useful even to a layperson like myself. When a distro comes in 75 mb, is chocked full of useful utilities and apps, and still includes gimp - you know they are doing something right.

CLI Magic: MultiTail follows files in style

Filed under
HowTos

Troubleshooting often involves having to watch logfiles in real time. That means using tail or a similar utility to see new messages that are added to a logfile by Apache, MySQL, X.org, or whatever program you're trying to deal with at the time. While tail is usually readily available on *nix systems, I prefer to use MultiTail whenever possible. It has some features that you won't find in tail, such as filtering and a color display, and MultiTail allows you to follow the output from a command as easily as following a logfile.

Reduce the Risk - hire programmers from open source

OSS

In the wake of open source, traditional hiring practices seem like an unnecessarily risky way to hire new employees, especially for small teams where each hire can make it or break it. Why bet the composition of your collective on abstract indicators, hearsay, and a biased bio?

An article about How Linux or UNIX Understand which program to run got picked up by a few dozen RSS feeds recently. It's not a bad article.

It's actually slightly incorrect though.

Test drive: Kororaa

Filed under
Reviews

Ever wanted to try Gentoo, but you didn't want to spend hours compiling to get a working installation? Kororaa may be the answer. It's a great tool to get a working Gentoo installation, rather than a distinct distro in its own right. It takes some of the complexity out of installing Gentoo, but still provides the advantages of Gentoo's Portage system and extensive package availability.

First Look at VectorLinux SOHO 5.1.1 Deluxe

Filed under
Reviews

When you think of Linux, what distribution comes immediately to mind? The answer will most likely be different depending on whom you ask, and for different reasons. For me, it's Slackware Linux. The reason is that it's not only the oldest surviving Linux distribution on the planet, but it's also one of the best desktop distributions going... in my book at least. With that being said, I introduce to you VectorLinux.
