Review: Linux Mint 9 KDE

Filed under
Linux A Mint derivative where the main color is BLUE. Yes I know that it is less than a month before Ubuntu Maverick Meerkat arrives, and then Linux Mint will follow with their releases soon after, but Mint 9 KDE warrants special attention.

Creating An NFS-Like Standalone Storage Server With GlusterFS On Ubuntu 10.04

Filed under

This tutorial shows how to set up a standalone storage server on Ubuntu 10.04. Instead of NFS, I will use GlusterFS here. The client system will be able to access the storage as if it was a local filesystem. GlusterFS is a clustered file-system capable of scaling to several peta-bytes. It aggregates various storage bricks over Infiniband RDMA or TCP/IP interconnect into one large parallel network file system. Storage bricks can be made of any commodity hardware such as x86_64 servers with SATA-II RAID and Infiniband HBA.

Reflection: KDE 4.5

Filed under

dasublogbyprashanth.blogspot: I've been using KDE 4.5 for the last 2 weeks (since I reviewed it), and though I generally like what I see, I think my first experiences with Linux (i.e. with a GNOME desktop) have already biased me against fully accepting KDE 4.5.

COMPIZ Showcase: What’s coming up in 0.9.2

Filed under

smspillaz.wordpress: Development of course is progressing nicely, now as much to the point where we can do blog posts about progress, like I did back in 2007 and 2008! We’ve had some great community contributions and new developers jump on board and the project is rapidly regaining its health from the slow down in 2009.

Windows or Linux: Which is easier to fix?

Filed under
Microsoft I like to break stuff. Why? It means I get to find things out about what I’ve broken and it means I get to repair what I have broken. And operating systems are no exception.

Demystifying OpenGL Desktop Effects

Filed under
KDE My last blog post about the driver situation in the KDE Plasma Workspaces in version 4.5 caused quite some discussion. This is great and really required. But it also showed that there are quite some incorrect information about the current and future OpenGL compositing.

Ubuntu 10.10 Beta - Overview & Screenshots

Filed under

tuxarena.blogspot: We're less than one month until the next Ubuntu release, 10.10. Maverick Meerkat, as it is codenamed, is scheduled for release on October 10, 2010, and, as always, Canonical put out a beta calling for users to test-drive it and report problems and bugs.


Filed under

thedeepvoid.blogspot: PCLinuxOS or PCLOS is based on Mandrake. The Gnome version comes equipped with an ugly gray colored background. I attribute this to the fact that most PCLOS users are KDE desktoppers and don't really care what color Gnome is.
