It's been 10 years since a barefoot Marc Andreessen graced the cover of Time magazine and trumpeted how the browser would make the operating system irrelevant. By uttering the unthinkable, he brought the ire of Bill Gates down on Netscape. Now, Netscape as a Web powerhouse is gone and Andreessen is no longer a magazine cover boy. Yet his vision of computing through a browser window turns out to have been prescient, if premature.
SSH allows you to forward ports from one machine to another, tunnelling traffic through the secure SSH connection. However, forwarding an individual port still requires you to change where your program connects, telling it to use a non-standard port on localhost rather than the standard port on the remote machine, and it requires a separate port forward for each machine you want to access. Dynamic port forwarding via SOCKS provides a more convenient alternative.
When you hear the name Slackware, you are at once transported to a world where Linux users feel more at home in setting the configurations by editing ordinary text files. In fact the credo of Slackware is to keep it as simple as possible.
Kenneth Granerud has announced a brand new release of Wolvix, a desktop-oriented live CD based on Slackware Linux: "After nearly five months of development, Wolvix 1.0.5 is finally ready for release."
Now we’re thinking of having a “user and business” conference, aimed at bringing together the people who deploy and manage Ubuntu in the real world (well, in the USA in particular, but let’s think globally) with those who help to produce it. The big question is - who would want to come?
The highlights of this release are native VC-1/WMV3, On2 VP5 and VP62 (used in some Flash video files) decoding, which works even on non-Intel platforms and SSA/ASS/color subtitles.
Red Hat Inc has waved away the implications of a potential move by Oracle Corp into the Linux distribution business, maintaining that it is not overly concerned by the possibility.
I love technology, but I'm fanatical about only a few things high-tech. Firefox is one of them. The Web browser has always been an underdog to Microsoft's market-dominant Internet Explorer, but Firefox is vastly superior in features and usability. That's why it's my fave browser.
Edubuntu is Ubuntu GNU/Linux customised for schools, containing additional applications for young human beings, administration tools for school management, and a built-in terminal server. Besides the standard software available on the Edubuntu CD, you will also find a world of software in the Edubuntu Universe, an on-line repository containing more than 10GB of community contributed software.
Messing up your hard disk's partition table doesn't take much effort, especially when you're preparing a dual-boot machine. Even a mistimed fdisk /mbr can spell disaster, erasing the master boot record (MBR) and making the disk unusable. But victims of damaged MBRs rejoice -- gpart can save your day. This utility scans a hard disk and prepares a partition table of areas that resemble a partition, which you can use to make the disk bootable again.

PCLinuxOS is a bit of an unknown quantity to me. It appears to be pretty popular, sitting at number six on Distrowatch at the time of writing, yet I rarely hear anything about it except for the odd release. So, seeing as I know next to nothing about PCLinuxOS, it's about time that I went and saw what the fuss was about.

About 3 months ago I had installed SuSe 10.1 on my computer and was thrilled about it but I always had a passion for trying something new and exciting. I always heard about Gentoo Linux that it was “the bomb.” More than half the time using the computer was spent installing this and that. I was fed up whit it so i installed SuSe 10.1 again.
First of all, I’m not Guru. I used to be a Windows user, but now I’m a Linux fan. I’ve been using Linux for quite some time now. I don’t play with the kernel or do any serious system administration stuff; I chiefly use Linux for web development and other “normal stuff” (internet, music, video, graphics etc). I’ve been using Linux for around four years, and I’ve never stuck to either KDE or GNOME.
This tutorial provides step-by-step instructions on how you can convert .rpm packages to .deb packages with a tool called alien so that you can easily install them on Debian and Ubuntu systems. Sometimes this is quite convenient as not all software projects release their software as Debian/Ubuntu packages.
Boot-Up Manager is a Perl-Gtk2 application to handle runlevels configuration of any debian derivative system. With this program the user will easily start and stop boot-up scripts, without the necessity to handle thru complex links and permissions.
For many computer users, it sounds like a nightmare - being forced to enter cryptic commands into the computer using the keyboard. Yet, it need not be such a horror show.
On the eve of the OracleWorld user conference, market watchers are divided on whether Oracle intends to make an announcement concerning its Linux plans. However, I believe it's a fair bet that Oracle is working on incorporating Ubuntu Linux into its own product.
