Robots have been a passion of mine since I was a child, so imagine my excitement when I was given the opportunity to add a robotics class to our high school's computer curriculum! During this time, we've produced three different robots, each based on a PC running Linux.
The very phrase 'year of the Linux Desktop' has been stirring debates for years now. I decided that I would use SLED 10 as my primary linux 'box' for at least a month to see if it would grow on me. All three of my computers handled it well enough, but is it really ready for the desktop ?
All the focus these days seems to be on Firefox extensions. Web Developer this, FlashGot that. But what about Mozilla Thunderbird? Here are five super extensions for the open source email client.
How is the third version of the GNU General Public License (GPLv3) being written? Considering how much the revised license and its success or failure could affect the free and open source software communities, the question is almost as important as the final content. Yet, until now, the answer has been largely unknown.
If white-bearded, mountain homed, wise old men had a panache for GUIs they might say something like this: ‘Never be bound by the desktop paradigm’. After all, just because your desktop windows are there doesn’t mean they’re right.
As an industry, hydrocarbon exploration and production operates in an increasingly challenging environment. The new challenges include more than high risk and high capital commitments, or declining fields and complex operations. Unconventional plays have become conventional. It is not enough to be creative, aggressive and technically adroit. One also wants to be smart. The good news is that smart is a lot cheaper than it used to be.
Hardware and Software failures are part of Life. That is why you need to have a backup. You need not to backup all installed binaries using the following tips. It will not just save your time but both Debian and RHEL distro can update them instantly.
The State of Massachusetts has reaffirmed its commitment to begin using the OpenDocument Format by Jan. 1, 2007, a move that has been welcomed by the ODF Alliance.
Sometimes you just need to run a process backgrounded. With the program screen and a bit of bash scripting, you can fool an application into thinking it's being run in a terminal. To the program it will appear as if you had run the commands from a bash prompt.
Two days ago, a subscription article in LWN (Who maintains RPM?) rang a bell in my dirty mind. Who's actually owning the (originally) Red Hat Package Manager? (Well... still Red Hat, as it seems... or nobody!) RPM is practically unmaintained right now!
Doing word processing without a dedicated word processor may seem like an absurd idea, but it actually makes a lot of sense, as long as you have the right set of writing tools -- a solid text editor, the txt2tags utility, and Aspell spelling software.
It seems that Open Source is rife throughout the programme, to the point that it could be considered a long advertisement for it. Jack Bauer’s outfit is too intelligent to be caught dead using Windows.
Mozilla has accepted Microsoft's offer of help towards ensuring interoperability between Firefox and the upcoming Vista operating system.
Pluto has just been demoted. The celestial body, long known as one of the nine planets of the solar system, will now be considered a "dwarf planet," the General Assembly of the 2006 International Astronomical Union ruled in a vote Thursday in Prague, Czech Republic. Textbook makers grapple with Pluto demotion.
Operating Systems: Linux IA32, AMD64/EM64T, FreeBSD x86, Solaris x64/x86
*Added support for X.Org 7.1.
As a system administrator, one of your chief tasks is dealing with server security. If your server is connected to the Internet, for security purposes, it's in a war zone. If it's only an internal server, you still need to deal with (accidentally) malicious users, disgruntled employees and the guy in accounting who really wants to read the boss's secretary's e-mail.
Pure-play open-source software providers are being squeezed out of the enterprise market by increasingly complete offerings from application and OS providers, according to a report from The 451 Group's just-launched "Commercial Adoption of Open Source" (CAOS) service. The report's findings may be applicable to embedded Linux stack providers, as well.
Novell India today announced that the award-winning SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 10 and some of the key applications that run on the desktop operating system (OS) have been localized with support in five major languages namely Hindi, Bangla, Tamil, Gujarati, and Marathi.
Many users of the increasingly popular Ubuntu Linux distribution found themselves on Tuesday thrown back to mid-1990s, when a botched update to the graphical X Window subsystem brought them face-to-face with the command-line terminal.
