I hate hardware. Sometimes I hate Linux too, but more often I just hate the hardware. Boxes, wires, connectors, keyboards, mice, the works. Some days I just want all of it to disappear. Hmm, did I perhaps have a bad time building my new machine ? That's putting it lightly.
One thing most people are bad at is remembering things -- anniversaries, deadlines, schedules. Computers, on the other hand, are very good at tracking things -- so long as you have a way to tell them to do so. Remind, a GPLed calendar and alarm application from Roaring Penguin, is a good way to keep track of your appointments and commitments on your computer so you don't need to worry about keeping them in your head.
Have you ever encountered a situation where a file larger than 2 GB (say, a DVD image) doesn't show up in a directory index served by Apache, whereas smaller files from the same directory are shown and served?
Linspire Inc. was going to announce the release of Freespire 1.0 -- its free, Debian-based desktop Linux operating system that combines open-source software with legally-licensed proprietary drivers, codecs, and applications -- next week at LinuxWorld in San Francisco. Instead, this new desktop Linux distribution has emerged early.
Old Linux kernels don't necessarily die off once a new one becomes available. It now looks like the 2.6.16 kernel may join the list and become a long-term supported stable kernel.
As long-time readers know, I've long been looking for the perfect Linux-based media center program for quite a while. Now, it looks like SageTV is on to something.
The fact that a host can be reached, in itself, has little meaning if no service is running on it on which somebody or something relies. Accordingly, everything in Nagios revolves around service checks. After all, no service can run without a host. If the host computer fails, it also cannot provide the desired service.
“The idea behind Blue Pill is simple,” says Joanna Rutkowska of invisible things. “Your operating system swallows the Blue Pill and it awakes inside the Matrix.”
I had the opportunity to catch up with id Software's resident Linux expert, Timothee "TTimo" Besset, who has been responsible for every id-produced Linux port since Quake III: Arena, at QuakeCon this past weekend. Since Quake 4 was recently released and Enemy Territory: Quake Wars is on the horizon, I asked TTimo if he wouldn't mind answering a few of my inane questions:
Learn to use the kioslave protocol handler called Fish that allows you to access remote filesystems within the Konqueror file browser.
A VMware Player image of KDE 3.5.4 with KOffice 1.5.2 running on SUSE Linux 10.1 is now available. The image is fully functional and can be upgraded and tweaked as needed. More HERE.
Delighted, we are. 70 entries, and counting. And it’s not over yet! Many thanks to all of you that participated! and hurry up if you still did not sent your works, you have two weeks left to show us your… talent!
First and foremost, keep things "fun" but not circus fun. Keep things cool. Stick with about 3 or 4 colors and gradients of those hues if you can. Don't add too many graphical items, but don't add too few.
As soon as it’s clear that you’re distributing a binary blob that, by your intent, uses anything in the kernel apart from the standard userland system call boundary, you’ve distributed a derivatve work and the GPL terms apply.
As Linux servers continue to pervade data centers at increasing rates, one of the biggest challenges to strike IT managers is getting those servers to work well with their existing Windows systems. Recently, Centeris CEO Barry Crist sat down with SearchOpenSource.com to talk about why the landscape for cross-platform server management is improving .
I'm not writing this to totally bash Linux. It's not that I'm against it, but I just have to examine what my real motivation is. I literally have everything that I need and more with Windows and OS X, so why throw something else into the mix?
The easiest way to sound like a professional when you talk about photography these days is to grumble about the deficiencies of RAW file converters. The ability to save pictures in RAW format rather than JPEG or TIFF is what distinguishes a "pro level" camera from a consumer device. But rather than mentioning your camera's specs outright, the shrewd move is the heavy sigh followed by lamentations about your tireless search for the perfect software to properly manipulate your beautiful work. Let's take a look at how to do it using Linux and open source.
