As I covered yesterday, PCLinuxOS 2007 Beta2 has been released to the public and I've had a chance to play with it and I think it's fair to make the conclusion that this is a distro worth keeping an eye on.
It is a given these days that Linux is making real inroads into the corporate glass house. We (BMC) certainly have a large number of our product lines ported to it, and therefore a wide swath of systems in the R&D data center to support those development efforts. I originally started this weblog last year (and 99 posts ago) to talk about those systems and how we use, maintain, and generally support Linux here. I called this “Adventures in Linux” to be sure I can digress from time to time. Linux is a big subject.
Theodore Ts'o announced that the 2007 Linux Kernel Summit will be moved from its usual location in Ottawa, Canada, taking place this year in Cambridge, England. Ted described the move as a one-time experiment to be re-evaluated at a future date to see if it's worth moving the Kernel Summit to other locations in the future.
Recently I was expressing the need for Dreamweaver in Linux, because my company website was built on Dreamweaver. Someone said that I should try NVU. And when I specified that I wanted a heavy-duty web-development package, he suggested Bluefish. I of course hadn’t heard of these packages, and eventually gave them a try.
Also: ksnapshot vs gnome-screenshot: no comparison!
Experts, users and authors agree: When Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 launches in February, it will succeed or fail on the merits of Xen.
Reducing the widespread use of pirated software in Viet Nam will be an uphill struggle because of the high costs of legal software products, according to industry experts.
My Ubuntu experience was with the recent Edgy Eft release, all I can say is it's just not ready for any kind of serious application. Fellow ITToolbox blogger, Locutus, suggested I try Kubuntu. I have to say, I was shocked at the difference between Kubuntu and Ubuntu. Everything that Ubuntu failed to do right, Kubuntu delivers on.
Shares of open source software firm Red Hat Inc bounced up during last Friday's trading session after analysts forecast a string fourth quarter.
You can view .chm file using gnochm or kchmviewer under Linux. However sometime you cannot install these programs. There is a third alternative - arCHMage.
The author of the popular “How to install ANYTHING in Ubuntu” has released his guide into the public domain.
Curiosity kills the cat, we always wants to know more. I discover a command that can actually extract and prints out the readable string from the binaries. Okay lets see what is the interesting readable string in the /bin/cat
BT's wireless broadband router Home Hub may be in breach of the terms of Linux's General Public License, after it emerged the device runs on open source code.
Sylpheed is a lightweight Gtk-based e-mail client (text mails only, not HTML mails!) which doesn't have any other major dependencies. Here's how I added it [and gxine] to Pardus 2007.

Without a doubt, one of the biggest problems that I had when I was transitioning from Windows to Linux was losing immediate access to Adobe Premiere Elements. To the video beginner, it can present a little bit of a learning curve, but for someone like me, it’s irreplaceable. Short of buying an Adobe Premiere, I could not have been happier.
FreeNAS is a small, powerful, full-featured implementation of FreeBSD as a network-attached storage device. It's powerful enough to be used in the enterprise, but it's friendly enough so that even a typical home office user can take advantage of it. Here's how I created an easy-to-use NAS device for rsync backups and FTP server on my LAN.
Debian makes heavy use of it's bug-tracking system for allowing users to inform developers which problem need fixing. However, it normally requires you to have a working MTA that connects to the Internet. This article shows that you can still report bugs even if you don't have a working MTA for any reason.
SELinux is a project started and actively being maintained by the U.S Department of Defense to provide a Mandatory Access Controls mechanism in Linux. The target audience for this book is SELinux policy writers and system administrators with more content dedicated to be put to use by policy writers.
Over the last year I have run a server using the Linux flavor Gentoo. There are things I really like about Gentoo: the package management, USE flags and the sophisticated dependencies system. But unfortunately the drawbacks are severe for a server setting.
