Released late last year was ATI's next generation GPU solution for gamers on a budget. The budget part, the X1300, came in three varieties -- X1300, X1300PRO, and X1300 Hyper Memory. Even though the X1300PRO cannot enjoy the benefits of 3D acceleration under Linux, or any of ATI's proprietary features, it is compatible with X.Org's VESA driver for 2D usage, and later on in this preview, we will share some exclusive details as to when penguin users will see software improvements from ATI Technologies.
I am the senior system administrator for a national ISP. We run a cluster of blade servers as our primary mail/Web/DNS/RADIUS farm. I have found several tools that I cannot live without in this environment.
Synergy lets you easily share a single mouse and keyboard between multiple computers with different operating systems, each with its own display, without special hardware. It's intended for users with multiple computers on their desk since each system uses its own monitor(s).
The open source movement has always had its fair share of enemies. It's no secret that there's little love lost between Microsoft and the OSS community, while SCO continues its attack on Linux. What I can't understand is a new movement from the less-formal sector - bloggers in particular - who suddenly have it in for our community.
The European Commission is considering whether Microsoft has complied with its 2004 anti-trust judgement by handing over its complete Windows Server source code.
Microsoft was struggling to meet the EC deadline for delivering the documentation associated with its Windows workgroup server protocols.
New Zealand and Australia are lagging behind Europe and North America in the adoption of open source software (OSS), according to a report from research firm Forrester. However, local OSS experts believe Forrester’s figures understate the true picture.
Many of the higher end servers have an Intelligent Platform Management Interface, that lets you observe a whole host of hardware parameters. Usually these systems also support plug-in remote management cards (for example DELL RAC cards), that allow remote resets, and other remote diagnostics.
Parsix GNU/Linux is a new twist on an old theme. It is one of a number of remixes of the Kanotix/Knoppix line, but with some very interesting differences. First off is the fact that it is tailored to users of Persian languages and keyboards, while also being very usable in English. The next big difference is that Parsix uses the Gnome desktop. But is there more to Parsix than just a different DE and language?
The Mozilla Corp. says people who installed the beta versions of Firefox 1.5 and then used the auto-upgrade system to move to the final release automatically got version 18.104.22.168, a minor update scheduled to ship before the end of the month.
Ace NewsForge reporter Tina Gasperson recently wrote a story about how MEPIS reseller Technalign Inc. has decided "to implement a serial number system for the retail version that will prevent unauthorized users from downloading free updates from Technalign's repository servers."
In short, only paying customers can download patches from Technalign's servers for paying customers. Shocking isn't it?
I recently received a note from a disgruntled Linux user. He was having an awful time trying to get his unidentified USB Canon scanner to work with his copy of Xandros Desktop 3. He's not the only one stuck in that position.
Get excited! The results are starting to come in for the Linux App Request Survey we first posted at the beginning of January. There are some really interesting trends that we can see from the results. Let's take a look at what people are asking for and what countries they are from:
A new open source group, the Annodex Foundation, will be launched at the Australian Linux Conference being held in New Zealand this week.
Annodex is the open source technology that allows the creation of audiovisual content as 'webs' of audio and video, which are fully integrated with the text-based search and surfing capabilities of the World Wide Web.
AUSTIN, TX January 26, 2006 – Win4Lin, the leading purveyor of desktop and enterprise Windows-on-Linux virtualization solutions announced today new support for its Windows 95/98/ME product, Win4Lin 9X Desktop™.
The open source browser Firefox has been rated alongside Google, Apple and Starbucks as one of the most powerful brands in the world in 2005, according to a study published on Monday.
I am sure many of you will agree with me if I tell you that regular expressions are an integral part of all Posix operating systems. So what exactly are regular expressions ?
Traditionally, there have been two paths to choose from when considering mail servers. The Redmond path or the path of the penguin. Recently, the e-mail landscape has changed dramatically. For one thing, rich client tools such as Gmail and Yahoo Mail have shown the promise of Ajax. I'm sure there are many die-hard Linux folks out there who are silently saying, "who cares?"
The United Nations on Thursday lent its support to a project which aims to ship inexpensive, hand-cranked laptops to school-aged children worldwide.
