Linux-Tip: NoMachine NX is a Terminal Server and Remote Access solution based on open source technologies. It makes it possible to run any graphical application on any operating system across any network connection as if you were sitting in front of your computer.
Kristian’s blog: One day I’m writing about all these changes I want to make in Beryl, and the next day Beryl is merging with the Compiz community. So whatever happened to my vision? Was it just talk? No, it wasn’t.
Phoronix: Today we have the SMC SMC2870W 802.11g Wireless Ethernet Bridge. This wireless bridge is capable of turning any wired networking device into a wireless node and can also act as an Internet Access Point along with a built-in 802.11b/g repeater. What category of righteousness does this product fall into? Well, for Linux users, the SMC bridge is falling down.
ComputerWorld: Palm's announcement earlier this month of the Palm OS Treo 755p provoked some questions regarding whether this would be the last Palm device to run the Palm Garnet OS, now that Palm is embracing Linux.
Matthew Garrett: As the number of people using Linux in mobile situations increases, the need to reduce power consumption also increases. While some of these power savings are obvious (like turning off hardware when it's not being used), others are more subtle. The combination of recent changes to the kernel and some small adjustments to existing code can have a significant effect on your battery life.
Linux Insider: We're now seeing Microsoft's true stripes. The performance of the products is a charade, an unfortunate cost of doing business in a once competitive market. The real means to profits and market share are really about legal positioning, but in essence necessitates a military posture. For what are laws and lawyers but a means to avoid violence and warfare in lieu of a day in court?
This tutorial provides step-by-step instructions on how to install VMware Server on a CentOS 5.0 desktop system. With VMware Server you can create and run guest operating systems (virtual machines) such as Linux, Windows, FreeBSD, etc. under a host operating system.
Debian Package of the Day: irage is a relatively new image viewing application which has been designed with speed in mind. It uses GTK+. The project was started in March, 2006 and has undergone rapid development since then.
the distrogue: One of the reasons why one would get Linux is to make use of old hardware. Windows Vista, with all the DRMs built in, is bloated beyond belief, especially with the shiny "Aero" effects. Anyways, people who do this had better check the system requirements before they pick a distribution.
DesktopLinux: Dell reportedly will release its new Ubuntu-powered computers on May 24. In his blog, LinuxQuestions.org founder Jeremy Garcia writes that a Dell staffer told him, "We will be launching a Linux based OS (Ubuntu) on the E520, 1505 and XPS 410 starting next Thursday, 5/24."
linux-blog.org: So you’ve just installed PCLinuxOS 2007 TR4 on your laptop and your wireless card is detected! Finally, a distro gets it right! However, you’re not too sure how to proceed next...do you manage the device through the PCLinuxOS Control Center? Do you start another program and work that way? Do you use KDE’s built in applet to monitor things? What’s next?
ariya.blogspot.com: QEMU version 0.9 is already out for some time, but AFAIK no official package is available for openSUSE Linux 10.2 yet. Here are some steps I did to have QEMU 0.9 with accelerator (kqemu) on SUSE 10.2. The motivation is simple: I'd like to have a faster system for filter development.
FOSSwire: If you’re trying to diagnose a misbehaving network or you’re just plain curious about what machines handle your requests to the internet, you might be interested in a tool called traceroute.
LinuxReviews: I thought i should do a review of quite possibly my FAVORITE linux distro, Debian…note this might be a little bit biased, here we go:
simplehelp: Sharing files and folders across your network from your Ubuntu PC is every bit as easy as sharing files in Windows (arguably, it’s easier). This brief tutorial will outline how to enable file sharing in Ubuntu.
austin's blog: Intel recently released a very slick little tool to audit and improve power consumption. This is great for me, because I'm a road warrior (take my laptop everywhere), but I like to travel light, so I rarely bring the power supply with me.
groklaw: Yesterday, we got the stunning news that the SUSE vouchers have no expiration date, a legal oversight that looks to be the wooden stake in the Novell-Micorosoft patent peace agreement's heart. This is what will happen when someone turns in a voucher after GPLv3 code is available under the new license, which Moglen says is sure to happen:
iTWire: At sunset look to the west and the waxing crescent Moon and the planet Venus will be within one degree of each other, being the two brightest objects in the evening sky.
dot.kde.org: The HIG Hunting Season for KDE 4 continues. This week we focus is on the written word with a new checklist on text and fonts. Are you impatiently waiting for KDE 4? Would you like to help KDE make this release a full success? Then get involved!
Phoronix: When we heard Yoper Linux 3.0 RC1 was available, we immediately started downloading it. Yoper has been quiet recently -- to the fact where it dropped to the 69th position at DistroWatch -- but Yoper 3.0 Limenite looks promising.
