For a pretty long time I've been mildly annoyed at the constant "New updates available" notification bubble that pops more or less every day (Ubuntu Edgy Eft). Yes, it's good that the vendor is actively trying to make my desktop as secure as possible, by quickly providing fixes for recent vulnerabilities, and it gives me as a user confidence that Ubuntu is taking security seriously.
The GoblinX Premium 2007.1 is released.
The special edition created to be the main operating system of the
goblin fan, our O.S. Replacement, starts the second generation of the
distribution, full of news, special features and upgrades.
The livecd system is upgraded to use AuFS instead of UnionFS, which
brings more stability and less bugs to the system, also the Kernel
Did you game well? If no, is it because you had 3D driver issues and couldn’t make head nor tail out of this mess? Here, I discuss the most recent driver releases on the most demanding 3D application there is today on the GNU/Linux desktop.
You guessed it, 3D desktops! Since this article is getting a bit old, it’s time for an update.
3D drivers matrix—the evolution
After almost 2 years using Slackware I'm always curious with Debian and yesterday I try install it on my computer (using Debian Etch RC2 weekly build) and I choose to use AMD64 version since I own a 64bit processor.
This past Monday, Mozilla unveiled the third alpha of Gran Paradiso, the code name for Firefox 3.0. If development goes according to plan, this will be the first version of Firefox—or of any browser, for that matter—to have the three key components needed to support offline Web applications: DOM Storage; an offline execution model; and synchronization.
For the first time in almost three years, the open source BIND Domain Name System (DNS) (define) server, which translates and routes IP addresses into domain names, is getting a key point upgrade.
I posted about HostGIS for Linux server-based GIS the other day... Nice canned distribution, but if you want flexibility or desktop apps, you may want to try some other goodies. I am still working my way up to the whole tilecache/OpenLayers thing... I have my own AJAX WMS client that I wrote, but want to look at doing some interesting things with tile servers and some open-source backend stacks.
The idea was simple. Develop the world's largest electronic surveillance system to search for suspicious activities by criminals and terrorists. The resulting system, however, worked a little too well -- it kept finding dubious transactions that it traced back to Congress and the White House.
If you’re an experienced system administrator looking to acquire Linux skills, or a seasoned Linux user facing a new challenge, Linux System Administration offers practical knowledge for managing a complete range of Linux systems and servers.
A function is a pre-defined calculation entered in a cell to help you analyze or manipulate data in a spreadsheet. All you have to do is add the arguments, and the calculation is automatically made for you. Beginners might be content to use Calc for lists, but, for advanced users, functions are the main reason for spreadsheets.
As I prepare for a Sunday's worth of April Fools' stories flooding the tubes of the Internet, it strikes me that some of the things that are going on right now, in reality, would have been considered April Fool's jokes just a few years or even months ago.
Foresight Linux is a distribution based on rPath Linux (and its Conary package management), which showcases the latest and greatest from the GNOME project. Today marks the beginning of the new monthly publication recounting the newest developments in all things Foresight.
Some of this month's highlights include:
* Foresight Linux 1.1 Released March 15th
* Latest Package Updates
In pre-installing Linux on consumer PCs, Dell's biggest challenge will be in finding a full set of open-source drivers for the hardware that will run with the new machines, the software architect on the project said Friday.
We received the following today by email from Hewlett Packard, which clarifies their warranty policy for customers running Linux on HP hardware, at least in the specific case we reported on recently.
Per the HP spokesperson:
HP is committed to supporting its customers and backs its PCs with a solid hardware warranty regardless of the operating system.
In KWord we always had a very simple way to structure pages. We just stored the height of a page and when there is a frame at position 10000 you can calculate its at, say, page 12. Naturally, this only gets you so far and we had requests for things like differently sized pages and pagespreads.
A divisive philosophical battle in an arcane corner of the software business could lead to some unexpected consequences for consumer electronics makers and other technology companies, according to industry lawyers and analysts.
Linux is all grown up these days.
Once, it was the Little Penguin That Could, mostly a hobby platform for system administrators to play around with on the side, or powering workstations rather than servers. Real business happened on proper Unix systems from Hewlett-Packard, or Sun, or IBM, if not on the mainframe.
Firefox is probably the single free software project that is used by the most people and it’s a browser I personally love. Today I’m going to look at the issue of how to use a master password to protect your saved passwords.
Many free software advocates make a name for themselves by being involved with a single project. Dave Neary casts a wider net. He is a GNOME Foundation member, community manager of the OpenWengo project, and a former contributor to the GIMP project.
