It's becoming increasingly easy to "communicate with computers in mother tongues" with free and open source software solutions now working better with a range of languages from Asia.
Bigger language groups are especially better off, like Assamese, Gujarati, Hindi, Malayalam, Marathi, Oriya, Punjabi, Tamil and Telugu, according to an article in the New Delhi-based trade magazine Linux For You.
Last week, due to disk failure, we had to reinstall a server. This old workhorse has been serving numerous domains for the past 4 years and needed urgent maintenance. I made sure that I noted all the steps involved in implementing an Antispam & Antivirus filtering capable mail server when setting it up from scratch, and this article is the result.
Install Debian 'Sarge'
Open source security tools abound, so take advantage of them and avoid paying for commercial products if open source fits your needs. That was the message from Matthew Luallen, president of consulting firm Sph3r3, who spoke at yesterday’s InfoSec Conference.
One of my colleagues pokes fun at me because I prefer to use Linux through the graphical interface and seek to avoid the command line when possible. I prefer this because I have high demands of Linux as a user friendly tool and it usually meets my expectations.
Live CDs are great. If you are on the road an unable to access a Linux box, you just pop it in to the drive and away you go. You can use them as restore discs, play practical jokes and install a full operating system from them. One of the more interesting areas in Live CDs are the minimal (or business card) distributions.
Richard Stallman may not have been at Novell's BrainShare conference in Salt Lake City, Utah, but with some help from his friend Bruce Perens he was determined to lodge his objections to Novell's controversial deal with Microsoft.
Recently I was faced with the task to set up a server which had no keyboard and no monitor. Luckily, together with tools like kickstart this is no problem at all.
It's not every day that you see a Microsoft employee demonstrating Microsoft software running natively on Linux. Yet that's exactly what happened at AJAXWorld here, as Brad Abrams, group program manager at Microsoft for ASP.NET AJAX (codenamed Atlas) did today.
3Dconnexion has released beta Linux drives for its SpaceNavigator control device, enabling users of Maya 8 and 8.5 on that platform to manipulate objects in 3D.
The driver is compatible with both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Linux (Redhat Enterprise Linux WS 3, SuSE 9.0 or greater).
Proposed a few years ago by Vladimir Vukicevic and Stuart Parmenter, support for Animated Portable Network Graphics (APNG) images has finally landed on the trunk, Mozilla’s main development code.
Writing to NTFS partitions under Linux has been a real pain, if possible at all, for quite a long time. With a dual-boot Linux and Windows system, you can end up not being able to exchange files without a lot of trickery and special programs.
Some OpenOffice.org macros have rudimentary dialog boxes that allow you to define a few parameters. If you're ready to take your macro programming skills to a new level, you can learn how to create graphical interfaces for your macros. Once you know how to do that, you can build advanced macros that are close to full-blown applications.
The KDE Community and the release team have put together a release plan for the long anticipated version 4.0, which is planned to be released in October 2007. KDE 4.0 will be a major milestone for the Free Desktop, as it offers a new foundation and set of frameworks that will shape the desktop user experience for years to come.
This tutorial describes how to install the 32 bit Linux Testdrive of SAP Netweaver 2004 on SUSE Linux 9.3 and enable BW functionality. It goes step by step through the distribution installation, environment setup and tasks that need to be done in order to set everything up.
KDE is, in this writer's humble opinion, the best desktop environment for computers today. It is even better than the almost universally praised Mac OS X. It goes without saying that it is better than any Microsoft product.
Recently I needed to set up a server with all the usual server components -- Web, mail, and file sharing. It needed to be rock-solid and reliable. I didn't want to download 4GB of software from the Net, so I turned to CentOS' Single Server CD.
vi editor is something that UNIX newbies often like to criticize. Until they learn it well and understand why vi is vi and not something else.It is a marvellous creation of Bill Joy and one cannot but think of it without a feeling of magic and spookiness.
