The GRand Unified Boot loader, or GRUB, has all but replaced the default boot loader on many GNU/Linux distributions. It includes some conveniences over LILO, the LInux LOader. One advantage is not having to remember to run /sbin/lilo every time you make a configuration change.

The first original story run here on Tuxmachines was Genesis of an Operating System, a story of the creation and evolution of PCLinuxOS. I was thinking of running a "rerun" when it hit its one year anniversary, but with all the excitement of the new website for PCLinuxOS, I figured I'd strike while the iron was hot. Read up on your favorite developer and mine Here.
Wanna try a Linux distribution without installing them? You can try them with 'qemu' processor emulator. QEMU emulator is the first step to Freedom. QEMU is able to emulate a virtual computer, including a processor and various peripherals.
You'll probably find that linux is probably the OS with the most native amd64 (x86_64) users. BSD variants and Windows mostly have poor to no amd64 support and/or a smaller user base any way. However, there are still a few drawbacks compared to linux on 32-bit x86. So why do people use it then? And how?
Despite what you may have read about Red Hat Inc. working on porting Linux to Apple's Mactel, Red Hat isn't "officially" doing this. Yet.
When I first looked at this book, my reaction was more than a little unfavorable. Another rehash of man pages? Why would you need a book about "up2date" and "yum" etc.? Can't you read the man pages?
Do you ever send confidential/extremely personal information or documents via e-mail? Did you know that when you do this, you're trusting every single sysadmin that runs every single one of what might be dozens of servers between your computer and the intended recipients, plus anyone who has hacked any of these servers? Encryption technology works better than trust, says Alizard.
When I put together my IPv6 Addressing anthology in 1999, there were about a half-dozen books describing the "new" protocol. There are now more than 50. This one is very fine.
File integrity assessment tools are commonly deployed in organizations to help assist forensic investigation after a security incident. The canonical problem with FIA tools, however, is protecting the database generated by the FIA tool, as well as the binary for the FIA tool itself, from unauthorized tampering by attackers who gain root access to the system.

Novell is using its Cool Solutions community-relations website to conduct an online public survey to determine which Windows-only applications people want to run on their Linux systems. It's one thing when Linux Lovers of Outer Mongolia puts together a survey; it's another thing entirely when a billion-dollar software company does it.
The open-source community will see yet another offering in the systems management arena when Qlusters Inc. introduces its OpenQRM project.
It's been a little while (ok.. 3 years ) since we last released a version of the DivX codec for Linux. Now that work on 6.1.1 is complete, we have decided not only to release the Windows version, but a Linux version too.
