In this tutorial, you learn about cross-compiling, the boot loader, file systems, the root file system, disk images, and the boot process, all with respect to the decisions you make as you're building the system and creating the distribution.
meganmcdermott.com: When I started my new job in October the computer that I had to use was a Power Mac G5. This wasn’t my choosing - the guy before me really liked macs and had the whole office switch over several years ago. I was allowed to get a new laptop as well, and chose a Lenovo Thinkpad T61 and installed Ubuntu.
informationweek.com/blog: How to react to the news that an earlier flaw in Debian's random-number generator has been used to fuel an honest-to-Linus exploit, especially after yesterday's post? Welcome to the tip of the iceberg.
intranetjournal.com: With all of the noise going back and forth about how open source software is "better" for the end user, I am of the mind that this is clearly in the eyes of the beholder. I can think of a number of instances where the closed source alternative still outshines the FOSS alternatives.
blogs.zdnet.com: Almost one-third of the 25 top-selling laptops at Amazon.com are sold with Linux. (Shown is their top-selling Linux laptop, an Asus EEEpc 900 unit.)
bitburners.com: PCLinuxOS is awesome. Especially I like the “2008 MiniMe” edition, which comes as a bare-bone installable live CD, and contains only the KDE desktop essentials. I have recently installed a couple of PCLinuxOS systems. Along the way I learned a few useful tricks, which I wanted to share with the public.
linuxgeeksunited.blogspot: I use Linux in a variety of ways, business, home, hobby. Because of the ways I use Linux, I am glad there are choices in distros. A plethora of options to look through, see what works best for what situation.
opera.com: We're making steady progress on Opera 9.6, fixing several of the issues reported within the last week. Please continue to test and report problems help us improve Opera.
reddevil62-techhead.blogspot: MOBILE broadband has been getting a huge marketing push in the UK. But all the operators say their products - from USB dongles to PCI Express adaptors - are only for Windows or Mac.
computingtech.blogspot: With Windows and the Macintosh, the desktop is just that—the desktop. Linux is all about choices, and so is X, KDE or GNOME. One of the cool things is that you can remain indecisive your whole life.
mybroadband.co.za: Linux fans are in for a treat in the remaining few months of the year as most of the major Linux distributors prepare to release updated versions of their operating systems.
raiden.net: One of the things that amazes a lot of new users to Linux is how flexible the clipboard is. It's one of the many features of Linux that I've come to depend upon greatly. Without it, life could go on, but it would be much, much more difficult.
computerworlduk.com: We are in an economic downturn, perhaps even a full-blown recession. In these circumstances the IT budget is one of the first places to come under scrutiny, and most IT departments are coming under increasing pressure to save every penny.
heise-online.co.uk: A new critical security hole has been found in the VLC player from the VideoLan project, while there is still no public fix for the previous security hole found two weeks ago.
zdnet.co.uk/blog: I've just made a somewhat brief test of Foresight Linux. I find it to be an interesting contradiction. It should be good, it is in fact mostly good, but it is weak in just enough areas to spoil it for me.
monstersandcritics.com: To celebrate today's launch of 'The Princess Bride Game' for Linux, Monsters & Critics is providing our readers with an exclusive 30% discount code valid for the Windows, Mac or Linux version of the game.
cnet.com: Novell beat Wall Street's estimates with a solid third quarter, but the real story is in its continued Linux growth. The company reported that annual adjusted operating margin to be between eight to ten percent, up from earlier expected seven to nine percent. So, things are looking up.

phoronix.com: With Mesa 7.1 having been released this week and the open-source R600/770 3D support just around the corner, we've taken this opportunity to see how the open-source Mesa 3D stack compares to AMD's monthly-refined Catalyst Linux Suite with the fglrx driver performs for the Radeon X1000 (R500) series.
communitythugs.wordpress: Drupal is a fantastic open source content management framework which has been getting rave reviews from some of the best industry experts. This was all great for first 5 years.
