I have touched on this subject before, back in November. My basic premise then (and now) is that the very notion of anti-virus software for Linux is about as necessary as wearing a life jacket around the house to prevent drowning. Sure, you could fall into a tubful of water and die, but in reality, what are the odds of that happening?
The site was down in the early part of this morning due to maintenance/system software upgrades. It will go down again tonight at approximately the same time and for about the same length of time as I attempt to upgrade the cms.
I guess most of those, who are familiar with linux already heard of the fierce beast, which seeks for its prey in the Linux jungle, the Gentoo GNU/Linux distribution. Despite of what most of the people think, Gentoo is not about building everything from source, optimization flags, and text-mode installation.
Recently, I wrote an article about "How to scan your Linux-Distro for Root Kits". Now that the machine is... clean! I think, a good thing TO-DO, is to test my Firewall again. The good news are that we can use the free tool FTester. The bad news are that FTester needs to be configured right... So... Let's get to work.
Since Stephen Shankland's article at CNET entitled New Linux look fuels old debate, we have been overwhelmed with requests to take a serious look at the frame-rate performance differences between the various open-source and proprietary contenders. Our first article on this topic, which will likely be the first of a series of examinations, is looking at the differences between the X.Org open-source ATI Radeon driver and that of ATI's official but proprietary fglrx display driver. Will open-source breathe new life into old GPU products?
An article on Debian-Administration.org already covered ADS set up with Kerberos. But I was looking for the most lightweight and nimble ADS integration so I can achieve the less ambitious goal of single username and password.
This image gallery walks through the Fedora Core 5 installation.
The Linux Desktop Pocket Guide is a valuable resource for new users to the Linux world. Almost everyone has heard of Linux and recognizes it as the "next big thing". This book helps the novice user to navigate the most popular distributions to decide which will work best for them.
In a post to the opensuse-announce mailing list Andreas Jaeger stated that 10.1 has gone gold. He stated, "We mastered wednesday RC4, fixed bugs and then mastered RC5 and declared that last night as goldmaster (= final version)."
In this article we will take a visual tour through different free software editors and examine their core abilities in creating, editing and saving an ODF document. The exercise may on the surface seem trivial, but in reality it has important implications. We demonstrate on a small scale that which may happen in real world situations when a document is shared by different users in multiple environments: home, work, on the road.
This famous controversy is there ever since I became aware of operating systems known as GNU/Linux. The GNU General Public License (GPL), which is used by Linux as well as most GNU software, armors both characters.
VMware (http://www.vmware.com) is a company specialized in virtualization technology, providing software to run an operating system (guest) inside another (host). A few months ago VMware released VMware Player, a free virtual machine player which you can use to run prebuilt virtual OSs.
Many times I have come across seemingly hopeless situations where a program when compiled and installed in GNU/Linux just fails to run. In such situations, I turn to the last resort which is trace the output of the misbehaving program.
SUSE Linux 10.1 Final will be released on Thursday, 11th of May. SUSE Linux 10.2 Alpha 1 release expected Jun 16, 2006.
KDE 3.5 is a vivid platform. We looked at some reasons why three weeks ago and also last week. Today, we look at the photo-manager Digikam, the plotting application QtiPlot, the LaTeX-dreamteam Kile and KBibTex and the upcoming KDE 3.5.3 release.
Linux kernel maintainer Andrew Morton may force developers to devote one kernel cycle to fix long-standing bugs in the Linux kernel
A local representative of the principal backer of the popular Ubuntu Linux operating system has reacted negatively to a proposal to set up an independent Australian organisation to promote the software.
One of the great goals of standards development is to encourage the proliferation of multiple products that are comparable and interoperable at the level of standardization. In this extensive interview, I explore with Inge Wallin, the KOffice Promotions Lead, how KOffice is different from the other major office productivity releases that support ODF, which users may find it most appropriate to their needs, in what directions future development will proceed, and much more.
