As I had VMware Workstation running on my previous SUSE distros, I decided to install the latest available version 5.5 on my SUSE 10.1 desktop. I usually use VMware Workstation to run WindowsXP, as there are few applications that I need to get my job done, as well as to test and see various Linux distributions.
The developers of the popular Ubuntu Linux distribution plan to make a new landmark version of the software widely available this week.
PostgreSQL users have been put in a potentially sticky situation by a serious security flaw made public last week. The flaw allows for SQL injection attacks, and affects all versions of PostgreSQL, aside from fixed versions released this week. However, the fix, PostgreSQL developers admit, will break many users' applications.
I just spotted this article over on digg: Open source audio applications need to learn from listeners. After reading the first few paragraphs, I had to ask myself a question: What the heck is the editor talking about?

It's bad enough when Microsoft strong-arms other software vendors into submission as a means of thwarting competition. But when it engages in underhanded tactics to intimidate users in order to land a software deal, we have a very disturbing situation on our hands. And someone needs to have the guts to speak out about it.
Novell's SUSE Linux operating system has consistently gained momentum for years. Since I started reviewing it at version 8.1, I've found each new release to have more options, better autoconfiguration, and expanded hardware support, all while maintaining a high level of stability. But after having extensively tested SUSE Linux 10.1 for x86 and AMD64, I must say that the positive trend has faltered, and my expectations were not met with this release. While some things are clearly improved in 10.1, others have taken a step backward.
While neither Sony nor Nintendo really embrace the homebrew scene with their handhelds, there is a large and dedicated group of followers who rarely buy official games for the PSP or DS. Likewise, with a few choice programs and a flash-linker, running emulators and homebrew software on the DS is a simple thing. What if there was a console that made all this easy for you?
While users welcomed Sun Microsystems’ plan to release Java to open source, they say a lack of details about the announcement makes it difficult to determine the impact of whatever the company is aiming to do.
The opening of Beta 2 testing at WinHEC for Windows Vista has once again raised serious questions about Microsoft's ability to keep its promises.
This guide will show you how to setup a Linux router with the Fedora Core 4 Linux operating system and an old computer in about 3 hours worth of time. Since many retail routers have been having trouble keeping up with the modern user with their loads of P2P apps, I’ve decided to write up this multi-part guide to help YOU setup a basic Linux-based router. If your router is slow, resetting, or stopping internet access when you're doing torrents or downloading from other P2P sources, the router you will make from this guide will take care of all your problems.
It's a sight that will stun many users. To run RISC OS on a PDA is something we've been crying out for. Here, RISC OS can be seen running on a PocketPC PDA, with no Microsoft software in sight.

As anyone who has used Linux systems for production systems knows all too well, there's an art to arriving at a stable configuration with all dependencies met. Linux distributors do an excellent job of delivering systems that meet this criteria, and keeping them there through their update processes as functionality updates, bug fixes, and security updates get laid on top of the out-of-the-box system.
Graham Beasley, a federal business development manager at SGI, said the FAA is unusual in deploying Linux on desktop PCs. However, "open source is a lot easier in terms of maintenance," he said.
Though it was still rainy here at the Annahoeve in the Netherlands, the KDE 4 multimedia meeting was definately up to speed. This article will report on the progress the hackers made yesterday, including the "why" and "what" of redesigning and speeding up amaroK, work on the KIO slaves and Phonon.
With the NVIDIA 1.0-8762 driver pushed out to the Linux/Solaris/FreeBSD community last week, this has marked the end of the 1.0-8XXX series, with Rel90 approaching later this year. How have the NVIDIA 1.0-8XXX Linux display drivers matured through this series? Today we are having a look as we check back with the 1.0-8174, 1.0-8178, 1.0-8756, and the most recent 1.0-8762 candidate.
UK-based Canonical Ltd. will introduce all-new versions of its popular Debian-based Linuxes -- Ubuntu, Kubuntu, and Edubuntu -- along with its first enterprise server edition on June 1, a company spokesman told DesktopLinux.com May 25.
Y’day I got chance to play with Squid and iptables. The job was to setup Squid proxy as a transparent server. Main benefit of setting transparent proxy is you do not have to setup up individual browsers to work with proxies.
If you site relies on MySQL and stores its sensitive data in a MySQL database, you will most definitely want to backup that information so that it can be restored in case of any disaster. The script that I liked the most is AutoMySQLBackup, because it doesn’t have any real requirements.
Security-enhanced Linux (SELinux) is an implementation of a mandatory access control (MAC) mechanism. This mechanism is in the Linux kernel, checking for allowed operations after standard Linux discretionary access controls are checked. Standard Linux security is a discretionary access control model (DAC).
