In the office I needed a way to block some websites permanently and others outside of break times. After looking at some inline solutions I realised that I could easily do what was needed with squid alone. Here's how:
The KDE e.V.'s first Quarterly Report for 2006 has been published. Those reports are used by the KDE e.V. to report its activities to the public.
I happened to come across Linux Tips: take control of your bash_history. This explains that setting "export HISTCONTROL=ignoreboth" causes Bash not to store duplicate commands in history. Actually there's much more to this than that little post exlained.
Anyone proficient with Linux had to climb the steep learning curve. Part of getting over the top for me was reading a hundred different Linux and Unix related books. From that list, three books stand out as the most useful and influential. I can't promise easy sledding; it will take some work, but mastering this material will demystify Linux and make you appreciate it more.
Founder of some of the most important projects in open source today, VP of Novell by the age of 25, and an all-round cool geek. Tectonic catches up with Nat Friedman, Linux wunderkind.
Drupal is a content management system (CMS) built on the PHP and MySQL combination (detailed requirements here). I've been working with the latest version since its release at the beginning of this month. Drupal 4.7 is a significant upgrade that brings major short- and long-term benefits to users and distributors of the system. It brings Drupal back to the cutting edge of CMS development.
ApacheCon 2006 is coming up. And this year it's in Dublin, a city famous for knowing how to have a good time. We confidently expect the regular conference on Apache technologies to be not merely productive, but also tremendous fun! So for your diary, that's the week of 24 to 28 June. Register before 29 May for the EarlyBird Discount.
Frugalware Linux is one of those distributions that does not feature often in the news headlines. But those users who take the time give it more than just a passing glance are often surprised to find in Frugalware a clean, fast distribution. We have asked Miklós Vajna, the distribution's founder, a few questions about the history of the project and where it is heading.
Debian is the the quietest big Linux distro. I see hourly posts on Distrowatch, Slashdot and Digg about the latest builds of Ubuntu and SUSE, and even Mark Shuttleworth’s wearing of a KDE t-shirt is considered news. I presume that things are fine inside Debian and that no gnus is good gnus, but also I believe, as Oscar Wilde said: “What’s worse than being talked about is not being talked about.”
Fbida (previously known as fbi) is an image viewer for the Linux console. Some people -- console veterans included -- might find the idea of viewing pictures on the console a little bit silly; why not just use X Windows and a graphical viewer or even a photo editor? The answer to that question varies from "running X on my server is not an option, but I'd like to be able to view some pictures while I'm waiting for the compilation of a new kernel to finish" to "because I can." Pick your excuse and read on to find out more about fbida.
This spirit of volunteerism is alive and well in the world of open source software. Thousands of people donate their time and expertise to the benefit of all. But not everyone is giving as much as they're getting. Large companies, those with the greatest wherewithal to help, are surprisingly minor players in the roll-up-your-sleeves work of open source development.
to truly appreciate stallman's philosophies requires reading them and then really thinking about them. most people don't do much of that anymore. you also need a fairly broad understanding of the state of various aspects of "intellectual property" law and how industry interacts with it.
A senior Microsoft executive has told a BBC World documentary that people should use commercial software if they're looking for stability.
If you saw my review of Wizard's Kid-Safe Livecd and thought it sounded like a good idea, but had a few concerns, perhaps they are addressed in Version .20-beta.
An open source software company is something of a paradox. On the one hand, it has to convince customers that software is becoming increasingly commoditised, that proprietary software is limiting and expensive, and that standards-based, community-developed and community-supported open source software is the way to go.
Last December I blogged about the uproar Linux creator Linus Torvalds had caused by posting on the gnome.org Usability list his extreme dislike for the direction the Gnome developers had taken with the UI. Why rehash this now?
On this terribly slow news weekend, here are a couple of user reviews of SUSE Linux 10.1 to help you decide if you want to go to the trouble of installing or upgrading, or just to see if their experience mirrors yours.
Subversion is an application used for version control, it is meant to become a replacement of CVS Concurrent Versions System. Subversion is also known as svn.
This how-to will show how to setup svn repositories accessible throught http by using apache2 and the DAV module.
Dillo is a quick, lightweight, small and secure graphical web browser based on the GTK+ toolkit. Although it lacks many of the features expected in most modern graphical browsers, it does hold potential due to its impressive performance and project goals.
The use of Firefox, the free open source web browser developed by the Mozilla Corporation, is higher in Canada than any other country in the world according to recent research by onestat.com.
