Here is a quick tips of GDB. There is a time when I was working on a module that was written in c/c++ hangs in the middle of execution. I have no clue how it happens, and it happens quite rare. I keep guessing and try to feed in more debug print lines to search for the cause of the hangs. Spend few days with no luck, but suddenly I thought of GDB.
Before upgrading your system, it is strongly recommended that you make a full backup, or at least back up any data or configuration information you can’t afford to lose. The upgrade tools and process are quite reliable, but a hardware failure in the middle of an upgrade could result in a severely damaged system
In my apparently never-ending quest to revive and refresh my aging 32-bit box I decided to try installing the JAD (JackLab Audio Distribution) system. To recapitulate the source of woe with this particular machine, I'll remind readers that its PS2 ports are physically damaged, forcing me to switch my mouse and keyboard to the USB ports (the problem has something to do with the HID module).
Sam Hocevar was elected the new DPL: Debian Project Leader Election 2007 Results.
It's useless to ask "how many voted for Sam", because the Debian elections are using an advanced Condorcet voting system with Schwartz Sequential Dropping, to guarantee that the winner is the candidate that is the less hated, if I am allowed to put it this way.
Here we are again, another day and another newly released distro. This time I'm investigating the popular SimplyMepis 6.5 which seems to have a thriving community and a strong base of supporters so it seems only right to give this new release the normal treatement.
t’s time for another command line tip today - and that is how to see how much disk space you have left overall on a particular partition.
It’s always good to know how much space you have left, especially when you’re about to leap into a backup, wget a big file or do some other process which needs a lot of space.
Hitting the web a few days ago was the first release candidate for the multimedia GL edition of Dreamlinux 2.2. This new release is built against the Debian testing repository, the multimedia plugins and codecs have been updated, and this release also includes Beryl 0.2 final. This release does also include the latest proprietary drivers from NVIDIA and ATI.
Well it’s been a year since I gave up Windows for a life of Linux and was I wise to embark on such a voyage?
The Debian Project is pleased to announce the official release of Debian GNU/Linux version 4.0, codenamed etch, after 21 months of constant development. Debian GNU/Linux is a free operating system which supports a total of eleven processor architectures and includes the KDE, GNOME and Xfce desktop environments.
If you run Linux and install free software, you won’t have to worry about this ever again!
One of the most exciting of many projects under way at R Cubed Technologies is the Multiplied Linux Desktop Strategy.
Working with one of its partners, Omni Technologies of Canada, R Cubed has developed a system that allows up to 10 students to work at the same time with a single Linux PC. Novell Equipment runs the multiplied software.
Funny thing, I noticed this because someone complained about encountering the side-effects of Microsoft patents on ClearType in... openSUSE 10.2!
James Ots noticed that Sub-pixel Antialiasing in openSUSE 10.2 seems to be broken, so he recompiled the package from sources, with sub-pixel antialiasing turned on.
Head of TCI Research Center said here Friday, “pursuing the Persian Linux Project, or the open text software project, is no longer a priority for this center.”
In Web 2.0 terms a "mashup" is a website that combines content from a variety of sources in order to give users an integrated experience. You can achieve something similar using the vast variety of hidden utilities in Linux - and you don't even need to be a programmer!
The open source real-time strategy game project Globulation 2 has been updated to release 0.8.22. Changes in this release includes:
* A new system far campaigns is available.
* AIs have been improved.
audit2allow is a nice tool for understanding AVC denials. On RHEL4, all AVC denials are logged to the kernel ring buffer. The command dmesg will show these, and audit2allow -d will interprit them, and output the SELinux rules needed to allow these denials.
Many years ago when this project was first started, it was called "GTK+ AOL Instant Messenger." AOL naturally complained, and Mark Spencer changed the name to "Gaim." Around the time of Gaim's first 2.0.0 beta, AOL came back into our lives in a very strong way, this time threatening to sue Sean.
Kubuntu is one of the biggest KDE-based distributions out there right now. And it has a reason to be. Beautiful, powerful, easy-to-use, and easy to install are just a few things that come to mind. I tested out the latest beta, 7.04 Feisty Fawn, scheduled to ship on April 19th. Here’s what I found:
There are still a few bugs to work out, but Texstar has posted, "We are going to do a quick TR4 with an updated kernel/hal and then a final right after provided the kernel works out a little better. Whatever is still outstanding, we'll work on providing fixes via rpm updates as time allows."
Some of the issues the team is still working on include (updated to denote progress):
While we all wait for Windows Vista to bring the "Wow" and Apple Inc. to drop its Leopard, it's a good time to examine what might make a next-generation computer desktops really cool.
One thing is certain; your next desktop will be more 3D and have task-juggling capabilities to satisfy even the most ADD among us.
Beryl gives you four desktops to mess up.
