Team Mobile told us about a cool feature that is likely not documented. In KDE on SLED10, when you mouse over the screen resolution applet’s icon, you can use the mouse wheel to increase or decrease the screen brightness.
As with other Slackware derivatives, obtaining a properly-working PPPoE ADSL connection is not 100% trivial, despite the use of Roaring Penguin's rp-pppoe package.
Lighttpd has mod_cgi module that allows you running perl and other server side programs (cgi-bin).
While all the hoopla was taking place out in Portland at the Eight Annual O'Reilly Open Source Convention (OSCON) this week, some of us noted the ever-so-quiet death of what should have been a vibrant open source project: OpenDarwin.
At some hot, boring afternoon I got an _Idea_. With the help of public accessible e-mail adresses I asked 10 questions to a bunch of programmers that I consider very interesting people, such as Linus Torvalds, Dave Thomas, & Guido Van Rossum.
The Apache project has disclosed a vulnerability in just about all versions of the Apache HTTP server. The problem only affects sites using mod_rewrite.
It's hard for me to imagine using an OS without a strong command line. But who really uses it? Well, I do, and maybe you do, but most Windows users certainly don't, and most Mac users are equally command line phobic. Linux users may be a bit more apt to drop into typing-land, but even there its being pushed into insignificance.
Unfortunately, many people believe that Beowulfs don't lend themselves particularly well to everyday tasks. On one extreme, companies such as Pixar use these computer systems to render their latest films, and on the other, scientists around the world are using them this minute to do everything from simulations of nuclear reactions to the unraveling of the human genome. The good news is that high-performance computing doesn't have to be confined to academic institutions and Hollywood studios.
OpenNMS is an opensource enterprise network management tool. It helps network administrators to monitor critical services on remote machines and collects the information of remote nodes by using SNMP. OpenNMS has a very active community, where you can register yourself to discuss your problems. Normally openNMS installation and configuration takes time, but i have tried to cover installation and configuration part in few steps.
With LinuxWorld San Francisco 2006 just around the corner, curiosity is hovering in the air over IDG's plans for future Linux and open source events. What's the bottom line on this subject from IDG's VP of LinuxWorld, Melinda Kendall?
grsecurity is an innovative approach to security utilizing a multi-layered detection, prevention, and containment model. Here I will explain in copy and paste format how to compile and install the Grsecurity patch for the latest kernel.
Eben Moglen, legal counsel to Free Software Foundation, declared that the war against closed, proprietary software controlled by Microsoft and others is far from won.
One of our most dearly beloved distributions is in danger. Lead developer Ryan Quinn is in need. So much so that the very development of SymphonyOS may not be able to be continued. If you could find it in your hearts and pocketbooks, please click on the SymphonyOS banner or visit his forum to help him out.
Trolltech has released a preview of the long awaited Java bindings for Qt 4. "Qt Jambi technology integrates Qt with the Java programming language, providing new possibilities for both Java and C++ programmers." With the release of Trolltech's java bindings it kinda feels like Christmas. I wanted to point out some more presents under the tree...
From: Jani Taskinen
Thank you all for the last 6 years or so. It has been fun (sometimes) and many times not so much fun. Unfortunately I have had enough and I don't want to be associated with this project anymore.
Who's Jani 'sniper' Taskinen?
You can run some Linux distributions entirely from CDs and now, from a tiny USB keychain. Vincent Danen gives you the basics on running the SLAX distro from this handy-sized device.
