Learning to use Vi editor could be a real pain for most people as it has a relatively steep learning curve. But once the most common commands are mastered, one gets to enjoy the sheer power of this editor made available at ones finger tips. Cream consists of a collection of scripts and plug-ins which aims to make it much easier for a new user to cut his teeth in Vim by just navigating the menu.
Because Dapper was just too Damn reliable... nah, seriously, I need to run Microsoft Visual Studio, and doing so under wine was not going to cut it, and dual booting was going to be a pain, VMWare was not open source so....QEMU to the rescue.
A lot of the people I have spoken to at various shows and events have wanted to see more of GNOME's new Main Menu which Novell aims to deliver with SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 10. The newly overhauled navigation resulted from studies in Novell's desktop usability labs. So let's take a moment to examine it.
Today I found the perfect solution for downloading over slow or undependable internet connections. Though I already knew about wget, a command line tool, but it was a bit of a stretch to expect my uncle to use the command line time and again. gwget to the rescue!
I have to admit that network scripts in RedHat/CentOS/Fedora, and also SuSE and even Mandriva, are somehow better than the Debian way, in some particular occasions.
At first glance, you'd think an operating system like GNU/Linux that installs in less hard drive space and requires a less-beefy computer than Windows Vista would be an automatic sales superstar. Not so! If anything, Linux needs to become more hardware-hungry in order to compete effectively with Vista.
A Linux specialist who declined to be named, said recently that of all the Linux kernel codes, none are developed by Chinese. The situation has been acknowledged by Ni Guangnan, an academic with the Chinese Academy of Engineering and a strong advocate of Linux in China.
Although The Break-up is laced with wit and charm throughout, the theme and ultimate outcome make it not the best flick to take a date. Vince Vaughn and Jennifer Aniston star.
This week on PCBurn's Linux Game Review we're taking a look at Infinite Dungeons, BioWare's newest (and last) official module for Neverwinter Nights. It's a professionally crafted game expansion that aims to replicate the automatic dungeon generation game play of rogue style dungeon romps such as nethack or ADOM. Let's see how it stacks up.
For the forthcoming SLED (Suse Linux Enterprise Desktop) 10, Novell went back to the drawing board to rethink what makes a good desktop. The result is extremely impressive.
Apache is usually suitable out of the box for most common used. The apache structure under debian based systems is actually really well made as it is really easy to activate or deactivate module. This how-to will show how to activate or deactivate available modules under a debian system running apache2.
Here are a few ways to find out which linux distro you are using :
Sendmail has a terrible reputation for security. While the latest releases are very good, past releases have been less than secure and that is where the reputation has come from.
Why should Linux--as a technology, as a community--give a darn about anything Microsoft does? The story of Gates' retirement, as big as it was, wasn't about Linux or open source at all. And, try as many in the mainstream media wanted to make this about Linux, they really could not make a valid connection.
Just about any distro these days installs nicely to the hard drive. What can sometimes happen is that the system breaks when packages are added to the collection which the distro provides by default.
To the tune of "Why don't you get a job" by The Offspring
You won't pay, for upgrades. No way!
No, no, Why don't you get Linux
Say no way, say no way, no way
No, no, Why don't you get Linux
