Let me tell you a story. It is not about a man named Jed. Well, it could be - what with all those thousands of Debian developers out there, one of them might be called Jed. You never know.
A few weeks ago I installed Ubuntu Linux and decided that it will be my main Operating System for the months to come. I thought that I might pledge my allegiance to Linux and the Open Source community by taking this step.
In this article you will find ways of replacing text in a file according to given rules, either at the level of strings or of individual characters with sed.
There's been a lot of talk lately about Novel and Micorsoft's new deal. Most of it has been bad. Novel has done a lot good things to the Free Software world and the result of all this has been that once I saw openSUSE 10.2 available for download I went and got a hold of the iso and installed it on my system!
I swear one of these days the world will be overtaken by .pdf files. You see them everywhere! Instruction manuals seem to come as .pdf instead of print, maps & instructions online are in .pdf format. Now, using Ubuntu, how can we make our own PDF? Yeah, we can do it in a few steps below.
I have years of experience in Linux, and have used countless distributions in the past. Recently I got myself a Dell Inspiron 6400 Notebook, and installing Slackware on it, was pleasant at first, but than soon I realized many things where not working. Today, I thought for a change I’ll try out OpenSuSe 10.1 from Novell.
If you have been using Windows for any length of time you will have acquired some expertise and probably built up a collection of files you don't want to lose, two reasons why you might think moving to Linux is going to be too much trouble. It isn't, trust me and read on...
As we observed during our previous study ending on 24 September 2006, IE 7 beta was ahead of Firefox 2 beta in terms of the web visit share generated from France. Over the past 14 weeks, the new versions of both browsers have thus advanced at very different rates :
After I wrote my blog entry about the Feisty first alpha being available I decided to give it a try. I think the reason I do these crazy things is that it now takes virtually no time to try a Kubuntu Linux distribution. The process is down to:
For several years now I've been looking for something Bill Gates said. And through Windows NT, you can see it throughout the design. In a weak sense, it is a form of Unix. There are so many of the design decisions that have been influenced by that environment.
Art production in an open source environment is more of a challenge than most people think. I know this from my experience in the Ubuntu interface design project in past few years. It has become clear to me that it is impossible to produce high quality visual content in an environment that is lacking coordination. That insight prompted me to investigate other models that could be adopted and used in the open source context.
I have customized my fluxbox, I have my own set of key binding to execute programs I usually runs. I have my root menu, where I can access some programs which I do not bind on any specific key. I have my startup script which automatically load all the programs when I login. I compile my own fluxbox, and now I can’t feel comfortable without fluxbox.
Kristian Høgsberg announced that he is working on a new firewire stack to replace the stack currently in the Linux kernel. Ben Collins expressed some concerns about the decision to abandon the existing stack, "the tree is years old, and a lot of work has been put into it.
For a number of reasons, I was recently "forced" to work on an Apple machine for longer than I would have liked. Don't get me wrong: I like OS X, and I think there is a great deal the open source community can learn from it. However, it doesn't seem to be geared up for people like me: 11000 emails literally kill Apple Mail.
XglSnow is a plug-in for beryl that brings the familiar xsnow christmas and winter feeling to the X-desktop.
It could be just me, but why does the thought of adding a clause to the GPL 3 just to keep deals like the Microsoft-Novell collaboration from happening seem vaguely... wrong?
Gaël Duval already has a place in the history of free software as the creator of the Mandrake distribution and the co-founder of MandrakeSoft (now Mandriva). After being dismissed last March from Mandriva, Duval plans to make his mark a second time with Ulteo, a new distribution designed to simplify computing by taking administration out of users' hands. With the alpha version of Ulteo released this week after six months of secrecy, Duval talked to Linux.com about his plans.
Sooner than anyone expected it, Novell Inc.'s openSUSE community Linux distribution project has delivered a new version: openSUSE 10.2. As a dyed-in-the-wool SUSE user since S.u.S.E Linux 4.2 first appeared in 1996, I decided to immediately give this version a try.
Red Hat customers are mulling their options. But they can be bought. That’s one of the takeaways from a fascinating report today from Pacific Crest’s Brendan Barnicle based on a survey he did of 118 enterprise operating system buyers, including 86 Red Hat support customers.
