The Gentoo Foundation's Gentoo 2006.0 is a popular Linux distribution that attempts-and, most of the time, succeeds-in delivering a stable, manageable system while preserving fairly fine-grained configurability for administrators. Gentoo is great for testing and, with care, can serve effectively in production settings as well. Gentoo is a Linux distribution that succeeds in striking a balance between fine-grained configurability and ongoing manageability.
While Linux and open-source software got a resounding endorsement from a panel of vendors and investors during a session at the Linux on Wall Street conference here on April 24 titled "The Next Opportunities and Challenges for Linux and Open Source on Wall Street," they also pointed to some of the challenges facing open source.
The concept's great: what would it be like to have a pocket-size device that I could plug in to just about any Macintosh and by simply rebooting the computer be running a full-blown Linux installation? I had a spare Apple iPod, a first-generation 5GB device and I was assured by the folks at Yellow Dog that I could squeeze YDL into as small as 1GB. So, one afternoon I decided to take the plunge.
The traditional way of sharing a collection of audio files across a local network is by sharing the directory that contains them, so that everybody can access these files. This works well, but I guess it’s time to move on to the next level of music sharing through the Digital Audio Access Protocol (DAAP).

WiFi on Linux got a major boost today, as Devicescape Software donated technology to allow WiFi to run natively for the first time.
I've installed Breezy quite a few times already, and I know that by default it chooses GRUB as its boot manager. So I was really surprised when I found that LILO, rather than GRUB, wound up on my friend's hard disk. Was I hallucinating? Had I been kidnapped by aliens, and they were now controlling my brain with radio waves? Perhaps, but even after I put on my tinfoil hat, LILO was still there.
Whether you are writing technical documentation, an article, CV, letter, or thesis, working with LyX, the free, fully-featured cross-platform document processor, can increase your productivity immensely. In this introductory tutorial, we'll see how to get started with LyX, and explore a few of its big features and drawbacks.
Community has always played a central role in the Open Source landscape, and the term 'community' is bandied around almost as much as 'Web 2.0'. Unfortunately, as with 'Web 2.0', the term 'community' has become a vague descriptor for a collection of principles that represent similar things.
The Freespire announcement came as a surprise to many in the Linux community. Carmony tells us what prompted the launch of a free edition of Linspire and why this was the right time to announce it. What does Michael Robertson think? What is the relationship between Freespire and Linspire? Much more.
Sven Hergenhahn created a live CD based on Knoppix 3.4 that allows you to run Dell OpenManage directly from the CD.
2008 will be a critical year for Apple, Microsoft, and the Linux contingent. If Apple can't significantly expand its presence by then in the PC market it is likely going to be finished with this segment. Its likely path in that case will be to focus more aggressively on the consumer electronics market it currently dominates.
According to a recent IDC study, open source is becoming a fundamental aspect of services portfolios for IBM Global Services, HP Services (HPS), Unisys, Novell, and other major services providers. The study also reveals that open source is moving up on the investment agenda of companies worldwide.
The Apache HTTP Server Project is proud to announce the release of version 2.2.2 and the legacy release of version 2.0.58 of the Apache HTTP Server ("Apache").
As of May 1, Google is now accepting applications from students. You've only got until May 8th to get them in, so you'd better get on it.
Sometimes when working on a trivial task, such as creating a MySQL account, I find myself unable to remember the exact steps, despite having done it many times in the past few years. When such temporary amnesia strikes, you can turn to script, a command-line utility that keeps a log of your console session. It can record for future reference all the commands you use.
One of the things which has always ticked me off is making a clean fedora install, and then having hundreds of megs of patches to download the first time "yum update" is run. However, building a patched install dvd is actually pretty simple.
This is the first part of a series of articles regarding Linux Kernel Modules. In this series we will see some examples of module programming and some techniques and general rules that we must keep in mind when we work in kernel mode.
