The beta cycle is history! I'm still sweeping up confetti here. OpenSUSE announced the availability of 10.1 release candidate 1 early this morning. I've actually been downloading the deltas lately and even though they come in fairly slow, it is much nicer downloading 300 mbs rather than 3 gigs. I highly recommend that method. I am in the process of downloading the full x86_64 version as well. It's coming in at a snails pace too, but hopefully I will be able to report on it before rc2 comes out. But back to the topic at hand. How did the release candidate do? Will this phase go as planned or will final have to be delayed? Here is my report.
Try KDE is a new resource listing ways that you can try out KDE without commiting to a full GNU/Linux or BSD install. It includes links to live cds, VMware player images and Klik bundles as well as links to KDE desktops available over NX, with explanations of these technologies.
The award-winning, free Web browser is better than ever. Browse the Web with confidence - Firefox protects you from viruses, spyware and pop-ups. Enjoy improvements to performance, ease of use and privacy. Today brings version 184.108.40.206, and it is recommended that all Firefox users upgrade to this latest version.
Installing, supporting and particularly diagnosing networks can involve much detective work, in addition to decent levels of frustration and caffeine. As with all investigations, the more data that is available to form and test hypotheses, the more likely a problem will be solved. Therefore, the more options or tools available for data gathering, the more useful the data obtained.
FreeHand Systems used embedded Linux to build an electronic music reader designed to replace paper-based sheet music in practice, lesson, and performance settings.

There are umpteen GNU/Linux distributions and then some more. Many claim their roots in Debian and others in Red Hat. Still others swear that they are unique and were created from grounds up. Wouldn't it be nice if we had a picture which gave a broad idea of the roots of each GNU/Linux distributions? Well look no further. Here is a mind map of almost all GNU/Linux distributions.
Mutt is a fine command-line email client, but it lags Evolution and Thunderbird in its ability to do email filtering. The procmail mail processing utility can help. It is highly configurable, allows for far better email filtering than Thunderbird, and as is customary with command-line applications, it is fast. While procmail is most commonly employed on the server side, its ability to handle POP and IMAP protocols makes it useful for desktop users as well.
The company 1and1 recently started offering virtual servers based on the Virtuozzo virtualization technology. While these machines are quite cheap and provide a full linux work environment they run SUSE by default. Not my favorite linux distribution... I was pretty certain that I could also switch the server to Gentoo. So I tried and it is definitely possible.
This is not a review. It is not fair to review a work in progress. It is not a preview either. Such has already been done. Besides, all too often both views degenerate into a list of everything that does not yet work. And! And! Even reviews of released Linux distributions often do little more than enumerate features that haven't been added yet, but are already present in the author's current favourite. So I won't cover in any great depth what is and is not in Dapper. If you want to mark for yourself each stride forward, please visit the testing pages linked to above. It will tell you what you need to know, and has pretty screen-shots besides.
In a CNET story reporter Renai LeMay wrote, "Novell may be evangelizing Linux and Open Office on the desktop, but more than half of its own employees can still boot Microsoft Windows. DesktopLinux.com contacted Novell Director of Global Public Relations Bruce Lowry for Novell's comment on the CNET report.
Just as video failed to completely kill off the radio star, I think it's probably premature to finger open source as the murderer of commercial software. Apache Foundation chairman Greg Stein, on the other hand, had no problem giving a five- to 10-year timeline for packaged applications at EclipseCon in March.
Novell Inc has asked the court hearing its slander of title case against SCO Group Inc to put a hold on proceedings while SCO's non-compete agreement and copyright infringement claims against Novell's SUSE Linux are referred to the International Court of Arbitration.
I ended it with a suggestion about how to use the tools in OOo to combine documents much more efficiently than you could hope to do with Reveal Codes. What follows is an expanded version of my suggestion that reinforces, yet again, the advantages of using styles in many situations.
Another major advance is the unified scripting solution, Kross. The cross-language support for scripting (hence the name) allows for scripting in both Python and Ruby.
General way to implement tcp servers is “one thread/process per connection”. But on high loads this approach can be not so efficient and we need to use another patterns of connection handling. In this article I will describe how to implement tcp-server with synchronous connections handling using epoll() system call of Linux 2.6. kernel.
If I were to duplicate my Microsoft office computing environment at home, , it would cost me a small fortune. Instead, I have the equivalent functionality at no cost beyond the cost of the computer itself. My home computer uses the free Linux operating system and free application programs.
I'm glad to announce SUSE Linux 10.1 Codename "Agama Lizard" RC1. We will make sometime next week an RC2 - and only distribute the delta ISOs of any RCs, and update the factory tree as well. Full Announcement.
Wondering how to create a triple-booting system that involves Windows and two Linux distributions -- one that uses the GRUB bootloader and the other using LILO? Here's a hands-on procedure that lets you do just that, without tweaking cryptic configuration files and messing with geeky commands.
Static routes improves overall performance of your network (especially bandwidth saving). They are also useful in stub networks (i.e. there is only one link to the network). For example, each LAN (located at different offices) is connecting to HQ IDC (internet data center) using single T1/LL/Wan link.
