After seeing the specs for the OQO model 01+ tablet palmtop PC, I knew I had to put SUSE 10.0 Linux on it and do a review. OQO currently offers only a Windows XP version. To say the OQO/SUSE Linux combination is a "geek magnet" is to overstate the obvious.
Minutes ago the developers of TO-Crossfire released the password for their password-protected rar archive distributed via BitTorrent during the last days.

On recent motherboards the PCIe 1x slots seem to be all the rage. Some motherboard manufacturers eskew extra PCI slots in favor of their runty PCIe cousin. But what are these used for? And why would you want two PCIe 1x slots instead of a healthy 3 or 4 standard PCI slots?
The Linux Logical Volume Manager (LVM) is a mechanism for virtualizing disks. It can create "virtual" disk partitions out of one or more physical hard drives, allowing you to grow, shrink, or move those partitions from drive to drive as your needs change. It also allows you to create larger partitions than you could achieve with a single drive.
Intec Automation is shipping a tiny ColdFire-powered CPU module claimed to be the smallest Linux SBC (single-board computer) with Internet connectivity, a reasonable amount of memory, and "massive control functionality." The WildFireMod measures 1.9 x 1.7 inches (49 x 44mm).
Whether Red Hat's $350 million purchase of JBoss proves a wise decision strategically or financially over the long term, it was one that Red Hat had to pull the trigger on if it hopes to compete in the higher-value business-software market.

Hardly a ho-hum week. CEO McNealy, Linspire and Xandros.
Marcel Holtmann has reported a vulnerability in the Linux Kernel, which can be exploited by malicious, local users to bypass certain security restrictions. The vulnerability has been reported in versions prior to 188.8.131.52.
Currently I have 21458 photos according to digikam's database (which are using 13 Gb according to du ). When someone asks me to put some album in my web server I hate to lose my time exporting to html, generating thumbnails and resized 1024x768 versions of my pictures which occupy space in my HD that I'm usually hesitant to remove. So last saturday evening I started a new project: Creating a web interface to digikam.
Creating and reading PDF files in Linux is easy, but manipulating existing PDF files is a little trickier. Countless applications enable you to fiddle with PDFs, but it's hard to find a single application that does everything. The PDF Toolkit (pdftk) claims to be that all-in-one solution. It's the closest thing to Adobe Acrobat that I've found for Linux.
We've previously seen how to install the Jabber cross-platform, and open, chat server. Sadly - some people insist on using the closed source IM clients. What should we do?
This tutorial shows how to set up a two-node Apache web server cluster that provides high-availability. In front of the Apache cluster we create a load balancer that splits up incoming requests between the two Apache nodes. Because we do not want the load balancer to become another "Single Point Of Failure", we must provide high-availability for the load balancer, too. Therefore our load balancer will in fact consist out of two load balancer nodes that monitor each other using heartbeat, and if one load balancer fails, the other takes over silently.
I promised to write on... « how Debian Sarge runs (with GNOME 2.8.3) at the speed of light on my ancient Celeron/850 laptop. Surprise, surprise, getting old and nostalgic (like of Slackware) makes me likely to adopt Debian as my secondary desktop OS, err... "old laptop OS". »
Earlier on, I showed how-to mount a remote filesystem with fuse, using a remote partition accessible by SSH. Since version version 2.4.0, it is possible to use fstab to mount those kind of partition.
Wolvix Media Edition 1.0.4 was released Monday after many months of long hard work for Wolven. We testdrove a beta of his Media Edition back in February and although he was onto a wonderful idea, it was a beta. Tuxmachines was excited to hear of his final 1.0.4 release and was quite anxious to test it. I've always been quite the fan of the Wolvix offerings, with each being better than the last. I've been testing Media Edition over the last few days and can report Wolven has done a remarkable job.
