After a short delay, Ubuntu 6.06 (Dapper Drake) was released in June. Originally scheduled for mid-April, the developers decided to let the date slip six weeks to allow for concentrated bug fixing and some final polishing.
In this howto we will install 2 bind dns servers, one as the master and the other as a slave server. For security reasons we will chroot bind9 in its own jail. Using two servers for a domain is a commonly used setup and in order to host your own domain you are required to have at least 2 domain servers.
In a sign that Novell's new lease on life is garnering interest, some 200 people attended the Sydney leg of Novell's national Suse Linux Enterprise roadshow today.
Recently, a colleague complained to me that X Windows refused to start following a routine patch upgrade on a production Web server. I asked why he needed X Windows running on a production Web server in the first place, especially a server that was allegedly secured as a bastion host in a perimeter DMZ. The response that "it was installed by default" seemed inadequate when considering the security risk posed by running X Windows on a bastion host.
Vanilla is boring. Though it is, usually, at least stable. One of the inherent beauties of open-source software — philosophical, developmental, and future-of-the-human-race issues aside — is simply that you can play with it. And there is no more an exciting area to play in than the Linux kernel.
Several times people have complained that the KPhotoAlbum splash screen was a combination of ugly, ugly and non relating to KPhotoAlbum. So far I've managed to tell people to go and take a hike, but today I gave up and I started a contest to make a new splash screen for KPhotoAlbum.
Some interesting things are found in this week's Gentoo Weekly Newletter. We are briefed on the Gentoo booth happenings at last week's Linux Expo, GCC 4.1.1 and glibc 2.4 are going stable, and an interview at Lxer.com is highlighted. This and more in this week's Gentoo Weekly Newsletter.
Shadow passwords have been a de facto standard with Linux distributions for years, and as well as the use of md5 passwords. However, there are drawbacks to using the traditional shadow password method, and even md5 is not as secure as it used to be. There is an alternative to shadow called tcb.
CRN Test Center set out to locate good examples of free Linux distributions that still have some channel focus and offer robust features, along with upgrades to commercial support. The field was narrowed down to three familiar names in the Linux world, Ubuntu, OpenSuse and the new Freespire.
One of the complaints I often hear from users new to Linux is the seemingly endless choices available. I'll admit it is confusing when you are presented with 10 browsers, editors, or email programs. And wouldn't it be great if there were only one way to install applications across all distributions! With out a doubt, it would significantly increase the usability of Linux, in general, if everyone used a best of breed installation process.
If you’re like me, you start getting real annoyed, real fast at the system beep that insists on beeping far to often. This system beep emits not from your laptop speakers, but from that deep, dank recesses of ancient pc technology that is a little speaker designed only to beep annoyingly. Short of ripping it out, here’s how to disable it.
Red Hat has hired Nandu Pradhan, a veteran of Novell and Microsoft who most recently was a vice president at Symphony Services, to be its president of Red Hat India.
A Bangkok-based company is shipping a tiny, sub-$100 PC capable of running Puppy and other lightweight Linux distributions. NorhTec's MicroClient Jr. measures 4.5 inches square, draws 8 Watts, and has a 166MHz Pentium-compatible processor with three integer units. It targets thin-client, kiosk, and electronic signage applications.
Greg KH has announced the release of stable Linux kernel 22.214.171.124. Quite a few bugfixes are in this release including an SMP kernel panic fix.
Is there really a need for another Nokia Communicator wanna-be? Apparently, German phone maker Road thinks so. The company’s very on HandyPC S101 is part computer and part phone, sporting the Linux operating and Trolltech’s Qtopia GUI.
The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) has asked the United States Supreme Court to overturn a dangerous patent law ruling that could pose a serious threat to Free and Open Source Software projects.
Administrators often criticize Security Enhanced Linux (SELinux) policies for being too complex, and they have a point. Mandatory access control-based administration is tedious and easy to misconfigure. It can be tough to handle the extended security attributes across a range of users, processes and files or directories that encompass more than one server.
A slowdown in demand for Linux servers did not prevent overall global server sales inching up 0.6 per cent year over year to $12.3bn in the second quarter of 2006, new research has revealed.
