Mythtv is an amazing product for turning your xbox in to a home built PVR system, the downside is the Xbox is not powerful enough for having it do the recording or the streaming of your tv shows. This guide will help you through configuring the xbox as a front end "Viewer" to your already in place Myth TV System.
"Localisation is everything that makes the computer work for you in your locale (country and language)," says Bailey. "Translating the computer interfaces is by far the biggest task and ongoing, but it is not the complete picture. Keyboards, fonts, locales, date systems and rendering are all part of localisation."
IT pros have been checking out the new MySQL 5.0 open source database since its recent release its commercial parent, MySQL AB. Some of those IT pros put our resident MySQL expert, Mike Hillyer, to the test, too. In this tip, he answers users' questions about the ins and outs of choosing, testing and using MySQL 5.0, an open source relational database management system.
This week I read "Artificial Intelligence for Computer Games" by John David Funge. The first thing I noticed when I got it up was how thin it was. It reminded me of the small reference O'reilly books. The first two chapters where more of a crash course in game design.
Chex Trek is a fun based doom3 Kids remake, inspired by the doom1 mod Chex Quest (for the people who dont know the mod was make 1996 for 6 year old kids that want to play doom).
Even if back in August 2005, www.gnome.org/bounties/Mailer.html#127516 said the status of a bounty for implementing a panel notification applet for new mail in Evolution is "Solved", even to date, Evolution 22.214.171.124 does not have anything for showing in GNOME's notification area an icon when a new mail arrives! The real solution is evonotify.
So, a friend of mine is looking at migrating from Windows to Linux. So is Mike, for that matter. Many of us in the Life, Liberty, Property community already use a variety of Open Source tools on the web. What I did think I would do is provide Kay and Mike with some pointers to the various flavors of Linux and my thoughts on them. I'm going to avoid the battles over KDE and Gnome and which is better, while I'm at it. I'll leave that to others. Instead, I'm just going to give a brief discussion of Fedora, Debian, SuSe and SlackWare.
Novell plans to move to a new licensing model that could impact partners serving corporate accounts.
Key to the new model, effective March 1, is the elimination of the Waltham, Mass., company’s Corporate Licensing Agreement (CLA) and the addition of a new option that allows customers to buy on a per-named-user or per-device basis.
The MediaReady Flyboy is a Linux-based portable media player. It handles video, MP3s, pictures, and doubles as a portable data story device. On paper, it sounds pretty good. In practice, after a few weeks of playing with the Flyboy, I'm not convinced that it's worth the price tag.
Woohoo, Suse 10.1 Beta 1 is here, one of the milestones in the development of a new release. It came a bit later than expected, at least for me. I had picked out a coupla fast mirrors before hand and began my download before announcements were made. As soon as OSNews and Distrowatch reported its release, the mirrors slowed to a crawl. It took the better part of the 20th to download SUSE 10.1 beta1. All this to say, SUSE, even in beta, has got to be one of the most popular distros available. And with good reason. I've been following the development of SUSE since the formation of OpenSuse and I have acquired quite a liking to its polish and completeness, its great tools and little extras, and its fast performance and stability. As has become the norm here at Tuxmachines, we installed the new beta to look around and see what we see. This is our report.
Today NVIDIA will be announcing their GeForce 7300 GS product. Aimed strictly at the mainstream, their latest will compete directly against ATI's X1300 product line. The GeForce 7300 GS will feature 4 pixel pipes and 3 vertex shaders. The core will be clocked at 550MHz, but the memory clock will vary depending on what the add-in card partner decides on.
In the first part of this text, we introduced the principal concepts of Debian package building. We're now ready to build an example package of a simple command line program.
"Suffice to say, Corel remains committed to working alongside OASIS and other technology vendors to ensure the continued evolution of the ODF standard and the adoption of open standards industry-wide."
Still, at that time, Wood was unwilling to commit to ODF support in WordPerfect.
The software industry is divided over the pros and cons of open-source versus proprietory "closed-source". Closed-source advocates say that it offers more secure platforms, cleaner applications and products. It also offers higher financial incentives to the charmed circle of developers with access to the code.
