linux.com: Recently I wrote about locking down the GNOME desktop environment with Pessulus. In this article, I'll show you how to do the same for KDE, using Kiosktool, a front end for changing the KDE configuration files in users' home folders and the /etc/kde* folders.
DPotD: Sometimes, you’ll want to download something but you don’t want it to completely saturate your Internet connection. Perhaps you’re already downloading something more important, or you simply don’t want to get in the way of other people that are sharing the same Internet connection. Enter Trickle.
ZDNet: At first blush, the new offering, with a proposed release this fall, appears to have the makings of a serious competitor. Designed as an add-on “EDU-CD” to accompany the upcoming 10.3 release of openSUSE, the so-called “SLEducator” is designed to “[ease] the installation and configuration of an educational network and student desktop.
LinuxWorld: "Readahead" is the act of speculatively reading a portion of a file's contents into memory in the expectation that a process working with that file will soon want that data. When readahead works well, a data-consuming process will find that the information it needs is available to it when it asks, and that waiting for disk I/O is not necessary.
Debian Administration: One of my main goals for a managed infrastructure is to make sure I have consistent versions of end-user applications installed everywhere. It was time to make Debian-style packages of the big, expensive third-party stuff.
infoworld: Symantec researchers have detailed a painfully simple attack method that hackers may already be using to bypass security protections and break into UNIX and Linux-based computers.
pronetadvertising: Though the move may not 'directly' result in a significant amount of sales, from a marketing perspective this will help momentously in terms of getting Dell's name out there.
australianit: MOZILLA chief Mitchell Baker prefers to call herself the company's "chief lizard wrangler", a reference to the organisation's original dinosaur logo and to the difficulties of managing a company that has 90 official staff but a volunteer workforce of 200,000.
MercuryNews: The trial of a computer programmer who is facing charges that he murdered his wife was delayed for a second time today because his lawyer is busy with another case.
Linux-Watch: The server market is back, and Linux is helping, IDC reports. Linux servers posted their second consecutive quarter of double-digit growth and now represent 12.7 percent of the overall server market, or $1.6 billion for the first quarter of 2007.
Desktop Linux: Singapore Airlines is offering access to Sun's StarOffice 8 office productivity suite free of charge to passengers on its new Boeing 777-300ER aircraft. StarOffice, Sun's proprietary version of OpenOffice.org, runs on the aircraft's Linux server and is accessed via a seat-back terminal at each passenger's seat, according to Sun.
Groklaw: I see a number of journalists have now read the patent peace agreement and the accompanying technical and marketing agreements that Novell filed on Friday with its 10K. Kevin Murphy in his CBR Online article, Novell outlines GPLv3 worst-case scenario, noticed that this seems discordant with what Novell told him in March. Obviously, something doesn't match up.
Server Watch: The tiny Linux category is filled with excellent, stripped-down specialized Linuxes for all occasions. A common difficulty with these tiny Linuxes is adding or removing software and upgrading because package managers are usually jettisoned to save space. But somehow the Voyage Linux developers figured out how to shrink Debian Sarge to less than 64 megabytes while retaining the apt-get package manager.
Mozilla Links: Mozilla has announced that a $100K has been approved for the Participatory Culture Foundation, a Massachusetts-based non-profit that aims to make "watching internet video channels [..] as easy as watching TV and broadcasting a channel […] open to everyone.
eWeek (SJVN): Patent fights are fights about money. The secondary issue, the one that makes the headlines, is control. To really understand what's going on in the current patent posturing involving Microsoft, Novell, and a host of open-source companies and groups, it helps to keep those factors firmly in mind.
informationweek: My tepid post, in which I gingerly chided Dell for not caveating its Ubuntu offerings up the wazoo, while at the same time complimenting the previously direct-sales-only PC powerhouse as being the best friend Linux has had in a long time, prompted a firestorm of reader responses.
osreviews: First-person shooters (FPS) are probably the most controversial games that exist. In some cases one has to differentiate between the game engine and the actual game content (graphics, maps, sounds).
Caitlyn Martin: A complete set of GNOME 2.18 packages have been added to the Vector Linux Extra repository. This means that users of Vector Linux 5.8 Standard or SOHO can add GNOME easily in addition to Xfce or KDE.
Eclipse hints, tips, and random musings: It seems that I've been reading a lot of "Ubuntu Experience" blog entries lately. I decided that, with the arrival of my new laptop, I'd do the same.
itmanagement: Fedora 7 helps to convince me that the time when the major GNU/Linux distributions were distinctive is rapidly passing. These days, innovation seems centered on the desktop or the individual program. Major distributions have become so mature that their role is mostly integration, and they are starting to look increasingly the same.
