The latest Ubuntu release, Dapper Drake, was quite a few weeks ago, so why review it now? After all, there are plenty of other reviews lying around. Well, there are a number of reasons.
The Mozilla Foundation is offering to "immortalize" people's names in the code of Firefox, if they manage to persuade a friend to download its Web browser before Sept. 15.
The question of if and when Reiser4 will be merged into the mainline Linux kernel has been an on-going debate for a couple of years. Hans Reiser posted a "short term task list for Reiser4" to address the remaining technical issues.
The National Institute of Standards and Technology has revoked certification of the open-source encryption tool OpenSSL under the Federal Information Processing Standard.
Red Hat has launched a Telecommunications Partner program for NEPs (network equipment providers), OEMs, telecom ISVs (independent software vendors), and carriers/operators.
While Linux is almost in the mainstream, there are a number of pain-points for existing and potential customers that need to be addressed, says Christine Martino, the vice president for HP's open source and Linux organization.
You say poTAto, I say poTAHto, you say "OpenSUSE," I say SUSE, let's call the whole thing off!? Well, not yet.
I think that software should do what I tell it to do. If I insert a picture of my cat doing its happy dance, I want that picture to show up in the document. I certainly don't want a list formatted with styles I never created and never asked to be applied. Unfortunately, that's pretty much what I get when using lists in Word. So what's the alternative? Use OpenOffice Writer, of course.
Delimited data uses specific characters (delimiters) to separate its values. Most database and spreadsheet programs are able to read or save data in a delimited format. So how do I process delimited files under Linux shell prompt?
While Ladislav is vacationing in sunny Fiji, I figured this would be the perfect time to talk about him behind his back. I'm sure no one reading this is clueless to the fact that Ladislav Bodnar is our benevolent 'keeper of the record.' I hope you find him as fascinating as I do.
Although for many the OpenOffice.org Base application is an obvious choice for building a desktop database application, it's not the only game in town. Kexi (http://www.kexi-project.org), a relatively new member of the KOffice family, allows you to create simple databases without learning all the intricacies of database development.
One of the members on my WFTL-LUG mailing list asked an interesting question. He visited the Healthology Website and tried to play the videos on the page. Sadly, it didn't work. The big question, of course, is whether there is any way to get it to work. The answer is Yes!.
The just-released beta of Firefox 2 may disappoint those who expected a major overhaul, but it adds a variety of useful features that make it a must-have upgrade for Firefox users, including anti-phishing filtering, better RSS handling, a built-in spell checker, and more advanced tab handling.
On June 1, 2005, Fedora Directory Server (and Red Hat Directory Server) was released to the world. I downloaded and installed the server, got on the support IRC channel, and imported all of our data in a couple of hours. By September, just three months later, it was in production, and I haven’t looked back.
In their recent plenary session, EU parliamentarians have voiced their support for an open information society. The parliamentarians point out that a "user-friendly system of intellectual property protection" should be created in a knowledge-based society.
In an earlier post, I had reviewed Gimp - a robust image manipulation software which is installed by default in most Linux distributions. If you need a tool which allows you to do batch conversions of 100s of images to the required size, there is a very powerful suite in Imagemagick.
Novell is making its latest flagship Linux applications, SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) and SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop version 10 (SLED) available today.
Every sysadmin will try its best to secure the system/s he is managing. Hopefully you never had to restore your own system from a compromise and you will not have to do this in the future. These rules might be used as a starting point to develop your own recovery plan.
Identity systems such as Higgins and InfoCard give us new ways of storing and exchanging information about users; good news for users and developers.
The people behind Lindows, and now known as Linspire, have come out with a free community project they have called Freespire. Freespire Beta 1 Build 0.0.69 as they call it is the first operating system with the freedom of choice. Trying it out first hand at Phoronix, it certainly is NOT a GNU/Linux distribution to try if you have any level of computer literacy.
