OSS
Web

robertogaloppini.net: Around the net there are a number of open source directories, among them the independent Osalt.

The ups and downs of Fedora 10

Filed under
Linux

raiden.net: This is a "mini review" of Fedora 10. I skipped Fedora 9, it just didn't feel "all there" to me, so I've been sticking with Fedora 8 on all of my machines. With the release of Fedora 10, I've installed it on a couple of systems here and wish to share some observations.

Puppy Linux - A pocket-size atom bomb

Filed under
Linux

granularproject.org: The category of small-sized Linux distributions (or mini distributions) is fast evolving. But believe me, Puppy Linux is not yet another mini distro. It is an everything OS. Puppy comes as an installable livecd, and can be installed on a number of medium, such as hard-disk, USB pen drive, external hard-disk and more.

Linux is our sandbox, let us play.

  • The future of xinput, xmodmap, setxkbmap, xsetwacom and other tools under Wayland
    This post applies to most tools that interface with the X server and change settings in the server, including xinput, xmodmap, setxkbmap, xkbcomp, xrandr, xsetwacom and other tools that start with x. The one word to sum up the future for these tools under Wayland is: "non-functional". An X window manager is little more than an innocent bystander when it comes to anything input-related. Short of handling global shortcuts and intercepting some mouse button presses (to bring the clicked window to the front) there is very little a window manager can do. It's a separate process to the X server and does not receive most input events and it cannot affect what events are being generated. When it comes to input device configuration, any X client can tell the server to change it - that's why general debugging tools like xinput work.

The screenshots in this post show how far I got since then.
