The United Nations on Thursday lent its support to a project which aims to ship inexpensive, hand-cranked laptops to school-aged children worldwide.
Although Microsoft is becoming an increasingly formidable rival in the same space, IBM, Sun, Oracle, and many other vendors are now responding to renewed opportunities for Linux in department store environments, as retail chains like Circuit City, Pep Boys, and Urban Outfitters start to step to 100-percent Linux deployments on their store-level IT systems. Jacqueline Emigh reports from this year's National Retail Federation show.
(This post is a follow-up to Quickly Sharing a Directory with Apache2.) You're having now a Web-accessible directory. What if it contains sub-directories? Say you want to enable basic authentication for a given directory, so that only your friends would access it.
This article will show you how to install Samba 3.X on Debian Linux 3.1 (Sarge) and make it authenticate against a Windows server running Active Directory. I will show two ways of installing Samba: using apt or directly from source in either case make sure apt's package index files are synchronized:
If you are an old school Linux or Unix user, you probably remember the System Administrator's Tool for Scanning Networks (SATAN). In 1995, SATAN brought browser-based network auditing to the world. Despite its initial splash, SATAN fell to the wayside due to lack of updates. Thanks to the kind folks at the Advanced Research Corp., SATAN is back, in the form of the Security Auditor's Research Assistant (SARA), a kinder, gentler, easier to use, and more updated auditing tool.
I have been working so hard putting togethere the biggest baddest selection of Linux games. I have packaged them all up in packages so you can pick and choose what games you want to install. They are all tested and running. I have also set them all up with menu entries.
Most Windows power users that I know spend a tremendous amount of time making their Windows installation do things that Microsoft doesn't intend for it. For example, when I get a new laptop at work (and I have to use XP on it, for a variety of reasons), the very first thing I do is undo as much of the dumbing down of the user interface as I can.
The Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) has revealed it is working on a large content management system (CMS) based on the open source application server Zope.
With the rollout of the new Core Duo-based iMacs under way, and MacBook Pro notebooks close behind, a new preoccupation among some developers is how to make it run operating systems other than Mac OS X 10.4.4.
Some developers in the Linux community have taken the discussion about the new General Public License terms to a contentious point: using it for the next Linux kernel, while a greater challenge over DRM looms.

Having spent the last six years overseeing the acquisition of, integration of, and partnership creation with open source software companies-and managing open source litigation, I am still surprised by how little CIOs truly understand about open source software's potential benefit and impact on their companies' fiscal and legal health.
Rubix is a Linux distribution forked from Slackware Linux. It differs from its parent in that Rubix uses Arch Linux's 'pacman' for simplified package management with dependency resolution. They released rc2 for their upcoming version 1.0 and we took it for a little spin.
Various reports are circulating stating Microsoft said today that it would disclose some of the innermost workings of Windows, its flagship operating system, to other companies. There seems to be some controversy as to how much source they intend to release. Some reports state all while other states some.
Today, with the availability of GUI-based CD creation programs such as K3B, the old command-line method write a CD-ROM is pretty much forgotten. Those GUIs are fine for building a CD from ordinary files stored on your hard disk--text, data, music and such--but sometimes you need to do the equivalent of copying a CD image onto a new CD.
Of the approximately four trillion Linux distributions out there, here's something a little different. FoX Linux Desktop 1 is an Italian-made distribution that by default runs a combination of KDE apps that make it look and feel more like OSX.
A web server should be as secure as it can be. However, you may sometimes need to quickly share the contents of a directory for web access, so you make a folder under your httpd's document root, add a simple .htaccess... and you may see the access is forbidden!
