One of the more intriguing capabilities of the BSD operating systems is their ability to run binaries for other Unix-like operating systems. I recently found myself requiring the commercial PGP Command Line for a project. Rather than install a Linux box just for this one piece of software, I jumped through some hoops and made it work perfectly on one of my existing FreeBSD systems.
Many people in the open source community question the need for antivirus software on a Linux or BSD system - especially a non-corporate, home system. But let me ask you, "Do you send and receive emails?"
Apache server performance can be improved by adding additional hardware resources such as RAM, faster CPU etc.. But, most of the time, the same result can be achieved by custom configuration of the server. This article looks into getting maximum performance out of Apache with the existing hardware resources, specifically on the Linux systems.
This HowTo addresses the incompatability that QuickBooks 2006 has with Samba-based file-sharing (the Linux de-facto standard for domain control and file sharing).
Summary: Create a new user, group and share. Access the QuickBooks files via the new user by logging onto the share with its credentials.
I like my web sites to be dynamic. The more dynamic, the better. And I like my sites to be pretty, despite the open source ethos of text-only ugliness - how 90s. So today we are going to get PHP to help us with images, thanks to the über-cool GD library that ships with PHP.
For 3.4-3, SimplyMEPIS utilizes a 2.6.15 kernel and udev for most hardware autodetection and configuration tasks. Network setup was changed to take advantage of udev event handling. After the final release, the changes in 3.4-3 will be be available in updated MEPIS packages.
With the release of the new Ultima LiveCD, Tuxmachines felt this distro deserved a second chance (third actually, I just didn't write about the 2nd failed test a while back). Since its hard drive install didn't fair real well here, we'd hoped some updates and bug fixes would show vast improvement for this slack-based distro. How did Ultima Linux do this time?
Linux has made major inroads on servers and in data centers running both open-source and proprietary applications on millions of computers worldwide. We've recently seen the rise of Linux on mobile devices. But the Linux desktop remains elusive. We know it's out there, but it only now seems to be approaching the tipping point.
There's a certain class of programs that I refer to as the "cranky" ones. They may work great when all is said and done, but getting to that point can be really hard. For me, these include sendmail, QuarkXPress, and now Drupal.
Chandler, an open-source personal information manager (PIM), has reached its first public release milestone, version 0.6, and is now available for download. Chandler aims to do for PIMs and calendaring applications what Firefox did for web browsers. Available for Windows, OSX and Linux, the application binary is a 60 MB download.
For the most part I´m a Microsoft fan. But a while back I made a switch. And for me, that´s a big deal. I changed my "default browser" from Internet Explorer to Mozilla Firefox. So, why did I change?
A new Linux certification lab has been set up in China to ensure local Linux distributions observe common industry standards.
3Com has identified a vulnerability in a popular Linux anti-virus program, the fourth time bug bounty hunters have cashed in on the reward the company's TippingPoint division pays for digging up software flaws.
There are some issues with the new Thunderbird 1.5.
The most important: Uninstall your old versions of Thunderbird before running the installer for 1.5.
The first public draft of GNU General Public License 3.0 will be released at an event at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge, Mass., on Monday, and open-source software advocates are hoping that effective provisions for software patents as well as GPL compatibility with other licenses will be prominent in the draft.
The first Technical Working Group for KDE is now being formed, with elections due over the next few weeks. The Group will help the hundreds of KDE contributors come to technical decisions and smooth processes such as major releases. It will also provide technical guidance to KDE contributors.
Installing a Linux distribution can be both exhilarating and frustrating. My first two attempts at Linux installs-the first in 1996, the second in 1997-were unsuccessful. Installation routines and hardware support in Linux at the time were much less advanced than they are today.
Ubuntu Linux founder Mark Shuttleworth will give the annual report on his hot, Debian-based distro at the 2006 Debian Developers Conference (DebConf), set for May 14 through 22 in Oaxtepec, Mexico.
LIRC is basically a small server which can decode or transmit infra-red signals. This is a tutorial about how to set up the LIRC server and how to use it in order to control your system or specific LIRC-enabled applications with a remote control. Examples of simple or more complicated setups are also provided.
ADHERENTS of the two new IT religions of the post modern age, Open Source and Apple, are set to clash over an idea being pushed forward by a bloke called Rob Lord.
