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.
In a bid to bolster the image of its music subscription service and lure new subscribers, Napster is returning to the days of yore by offering free music. The free web-based offering utilizes Flash, presenting the user with a basic player application, a window for album art, and another for advertising. It works for Windows, Macintosh, and Linux.
The Falko guide shows us how to get Virtual users working with Postfix/ Courier IMAP however it would be nice to offer per user mail filtering on email marked as spam by Spam Assasin for example to go into a SPAM folder for example. In this guide, you will learn how to get around some of the security policies that Postfix affords in favour of quickness and speed.
At issue is the concept of net neutrality, which holds that operators cannot give preferential treatment to content or applications in which they have an interest and that users have a right to use the Internet in a nondiscriminatory, unrestricted fashion.
If you have a sourceforge account, and are on your way to becoming the best thing to happen to the web since Yahoo or Google, then I beg of you to put a call out for people who understand database design fundamentals.
The GP2X open-source Linux-based gaming handheld with a dash of SDL and some Star Truckers (which is one of the finest open-source games I've played in months) has a new firmware version 2.0.0 out.
Scott McNealy is out. Jonathan Schwartz is in. And the future never looked brighter for Sun Microsystems—or so we're told. But if Sun's new CEO is going to convince me that his company can remain a dominant player in enterprise software, first he's going to have to get his story straight, particularly when it comes to Linux and open source.

I again point you to a new version of firefox before it becomes official. The version installed without problem over 220.127.116.11, all extensions that I have installed are still working.
Linux Game Publishing just announced that their port of Egosoft's space simulation X2: The Threat has gone gold!
Also: Quetoo 0.3.4 has been released
One problem with symbolic links is that really they are just files. A special kind of file, yes, but a symlink only points at a directory - it doesn't act like one. So, for example, if you put a symlink to /xyz in a users home directory, and the user has write permission to his home (as he ordinarily would), he can remove your symlink. Nothing you can do with ordinary permissions can prevent that.
This article briefly examines the current state of affairs for multiple server deployment, with an emphasis on modern advancements in virtual servers and workstations. The most common configurations use three primary techniques: Partition, Emulate and Virtualize.
A reader asked a hint for setting a a working directory for applications launched with WINE, because... "Some Windows programs require the setting of a working directory when the program is started."
The compelling reason for Linux's successful incubation and adoption is quite simple: it works for us. Linux meets two key requirements of technically mature enterprise consumers - reliability and portability.
I've used the University of Maryland's open source Amanda tape backup system for some time now. There is some documentation on restoring entire disks or partitions with Amanda, but restoring individual files from tape or image file wasn't that intuitive, so I thought I'd share my experiences.
Few days ago I have installed nginx on one of our adult projects as reverse proxy server and for static files management. Yesterday this server got 200Mbit/sec traffic and because all admins like to create miscellaneous graphs, I have decided to draw nginx stats on graphs to see server load not only in megabits and load averages. As the result, I have created perl script, which uses RRDs perl module to create and manage rrd-database and very beautiful graphs.
OpenSuSE released rc3 of their upcoming SuSE Linux 10.1 yesterday right on target as planned and reported on the Roadmap. I thought rc2 was just about gold worthy myself and was anxious to see the changelog for rc3. Well, they disappointed me on a few issues but all in all, they are probably getting closer to that final release.
Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Edubuntu, and now Xubuntu. Mark Shuttleworth's work continues on with this new Xfce Ubuntu derivative. Xubuntu shares the same base system and installation system as the common Ubuntu distribution, but ships with the light-weight Xfce desktop environment. Today at Phoronix we have a screenshot tour of Xubuntu Dapper Drake Beta 2
When developing any project, you must determine a set of goals that should be accomplished to reach a release point. When dealing with an open source project that is constantly in development, this is even more important because you lack a well-defined set of requirements that you must achieve. Lacking these requirements makes it all too easy to keep developing and never reach a release point.
