The typical Linux way of providing binaries faces huge problems: First of all, “trying new things” means installing new software just released in a new milestone release or just released first time at all. Repositories need quite some time to react to such changes due to rules about new release or due to the time the package maintainer needs to get familiar with the new release. Therefore in such a case the user is lost with Linux.
In this article i describe some of the things to do immediately after installing ubuntu on your machine . Since most of the people reading this would be shifting from Windows to Linux with a system dual booting so i would focus more on making transition easy from Windows to Linux.
Years ago I started as Debian user, but when I tried to help with the project I had a lot of problems. Someday appeared Ubuntu, I started to use it and so easy (and quick) I became part of the project. What is the big difference between Debian and Ubuntu? THE COMMUNITY!
Let me share a tale of woe on how worlds collide. I gave up trying to use 2 different Vista Release Candidates during 2006; I couldn't get openVPN to work. Instead, I went and installed a Linux desktop.
My daughter and her cousins fired up the computer and started "chatting" to them through MSN. A guest, who was glancing over their shoulders while doing this, decided to show off his knowledge of computers and said "Ah – I see you have got Vista then..." No I had not.
As another example of what I've missed, and how much Ubuntu has progressed, I was able to watch CNN videos for the first time on a Linux distribution. It's a feature I don't even have on any of my Suse installations. So what?
Pointers are basically the same as any other variable. However, what is different about them is that instead of containing actual data, they contain a pointer to the memory location where information can be found. This is a very important concept, and many programs and ideas rely on pointers as the basis of their design, linked lists for example.
This year’s Python Convention , being held this weekend in Dallas Texas, started off with an inspiring presentation by an engineer from the One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) project  (Ivan Krstić) , showing off the hardware features of the new “OLPC XO 1” prototype, as well as some “dangerous ideas” about its software design: a large part of the user space code for the laptops will be i
Krita progress over the past few months has been slower than I’d have liked, for a couple of reasons: porting to Qt4 was quite hard. But! Banish the gloom! There are some really cool and interesting developments. Not only have we got a most impressive ToDo, sometimes items even get done! I already mentioned the flake integration. But there’s more…
I configured Apache2 on a newly installed openSUSE 10.2 using YaST, which is how SUSE wants you to do it (rather than editing the files directly).
Just when I was beginning to feel upbeat about all the events and innovations going on in China this year, I see this thread from the CentOS List .
I finally got some more time this evening to try out various applications with Ubuntu 7.04. But before I get started, I need to clarify a statement I made earlier. Not only are the Ubuntu developers deserving of praise, but so are the Debian developers as well.
I have yet again wrapped up another day using KDE as my main desktop environment. I have to say that both camps really do have quite a lot to offer. I have come to appreciate some of the KDE apps very much–klipper is very convenient so far.
The 2007 road map for the Ubuntu Linux operating system includes continuing its focus on the desktop, paying more attention to the server and garnering additional corporate support.
The divide between totally-free vs. free-when-we-can got needlessly wider this week when open source practitioner Eric Raymond issued a press release announcing his departure from Fedora to Ubuntu, citing--among other concerns--Fedora's adherence to purely free software as a reason for his departure.
Two days ago the first incarnation of sidux was released, code-named "Chaos". sidux is a desktop-oriented distribution. It comes as a Live CD based on the "unstable" branch of Debian, but is easily able to install onto harddisk from the running Live CD using a completely new graphical installer frontend.
So long for texts like "Fedora is a set of projects, sponsored by Red Hat and guided by the Fedora Project Board." The governance model is broken. The project management is broken. The whole public image of Fedora Linux is a fake.
The KDE project announces the availability of the third development snapshot of the upcoming KDE 4. This snapshot is meant as a reference for developers who want to play with parts of the new technology KDE 4 will provide.
In my article series regarding software installation on Linux the last article outlined what my position and also point of view is. This article deals tries to give a general overview about the current techniques available on Linux. This is done mainly by linking to different articles and posts.
LWN.net has an interesting article [Sub req'd] detailing the contributors to the Linux 2.6.20 kernel. The author attempts to determine just who (as in individuals) and who (as in their employers) writes the Linux kernel. It's not an easy task.
