Last week, OpenBSD founder Theo de Raadt released to the public an e-mail he sent to various developers affiliated with the OLPC project in which he criticizes the developers for signing non-disclosure agreements to gain access to documentation that describes the proprietary firmware used in the wireless networking hardware included in the OLPC prototype.
The book features plenty of diagrams and screen shots (which are of the monochrome variety). While the author doesn't assume a programmer audience, he doesn't make the mistake of talking down either. The writing is friendly and commendably clear.
It was a nice evening. I started Rpmdrake 2007 "the long way" (Applications -> System -> Configuration -> Packaging -> Install, Remove & Update Software), then I looked into what video & audio applications could I add from PLF (with all the codecs).
I have for many years considered myself a "Professional Linux Installer". I bet there are some readers that know what I am talking about. In the past, I would try many distros out but never really liking any of them. I tried the SUSE's and Mandrake's of long ago but I finally settled on Xandros. But now, I think I may have found another.... Ubuntu may be calling me to switch.
The estranged husband of a missing mother was arrested Tuesday on suspicion of murder in connection with her disappearance more than a month ago, police said.
More than 100 days in office, Novell CEO Ron Hovsepian outlined Novell's challenges and opportunities with Linux and NetWare, the channel, Red Hat, Microsoft and Xen, as well as his goals for moving the company forward.
I was bored. Terribly bored. Bored of Five years of the same <bleep> desktop. The blue and the green and the supposed eye candy. I had kubuntu installed on another partition and was excited but I did something stupid and destroyed it.
Perhaps my cynical side gets the best of me, but when the folks in the Ivory Tower and government agencies try to do something for the poor folks, they usually don't quite get it quite right. By all means, the project should still go forth, but with the unfortunate realization that some of the goods are going to slip through the cracks and into the black market.
Andrew Morton has tagged 2.6.19-rc1-mm1. Interesting features of this release include the preliminary ext4 file system with extents. In addition there are the usual slew of early -rc-mm kernel additions.
The cat is out of the bag. According to BayStar Capital's managing partner Larry Goldfarb, Microsoft allegedly assured BayStar that it would somehow "guarantee" BayStar's $50 million investment in SCO.
Firefox 2.0 moved closer to its official launch with the recent availability of Release Candidate 2 of the popular open-source Web browser. And while Firefox RC2 differs little from RC1 and the previous betas that eWEEK Labs has reviewed, a couple of small—and, in our opinion, negative—changes jumped out during initial tests of this release.
It may not be taking the world by storm, but open-source still has a growing and determined group of adherents. Technology executives at two Canadian users of the technology, Pioneer Petroleum and Vancouver Community College, talk about why they chose it, what it was like to implement and some of the advantages of moving to an open platform.
Have you ever come across an ISO you want to check out but you don’t want to burn the thing to a CD or DVD? Perhaps you’re remastering your linux distro, or you’re creating a bootable, slipstreamed WinXP install or something and you want to test it without waisting 10 DVDs in the process. Well, here’s how to do it.
The ability to digitally sign OpenOffice.org documents is a boon for users who want to make their document exchange and collaboration secure. Using digital signatures in OpenOffice.org is not that difficult, but configuring it involves several steps that are far from obvious.
This article will show what changes (related to the debian kernel images) can Debian Sarge users expect to see when Etch will reach stable. Users of Debian testing/sid are already familiar with these changes as they are live in Etch for a while.

Firefox was using 100% of the CPU in my Mandriva 2007, and suddenly it went out of sight. Well, it was gone, but the bad thing is that 145 MB file on my desktop. To disable the generation of the core dumps, edit the file /etc/security/limits.conf.
