3 Days with gentoo

Filed under
Gentoo

silentcoder: So I finally made my choice of new distros. I opted for gentoo. I actually tried archlinux first but it annoyed me insanely within ten minutes. Now I last used Gentoo a good 3 years ago, so a lot has changed, here then, a short review after my first 3 days, as we speak - I just loaded up my first functional KDE desktop.

Analyse Linux networks through the ethereal world of Wireshark

Filed under
Software

iTWire: What’s happening on your network? Tools exist to display raw data but you still need to put work in to uncover real information. Here’s where a network analyser comes in: it will separate the AIM chatter from the MSN; it will divide RPC from SMB. And the best open-source network analyser is Wireshark.

Making Linux application user interfaces richer with OpenGL

Filed under
OSS

arstechnica: One fascinating session (and one that shows how FOSSCamp works and why it's so productive) was given by Mirco Müller, who discussed using OpenGL in GTK applications. Müller talked about the state of OpenGL support in desktop applications and described various techniques that developers can use to make OpenGL content integrate better with conventional GTK user interfaces.

Mint, Ubuntu, and OpenSUSE

Filed under
Linux

Steve Carl: I had taken my Dell D620, configured with Mint 3.1. It was reliable and trouble free. What was left over from that trip was an issue from the previous post about OpenSUSE 10.3. It was troublesome enough on the D620 hardware that I ejected it at the last minute in favor of Mint 3.1. I had two days back in the office between trips, and spent one evening after everyone left setting up a new set of Linux test systems.

Virtualization: Ubuntu server + KDE/Xfce - Part I

Filed under
Ubuntu

jon-reagan.blogspot: The Ubuntu server CD is great for virtualization: it's fast, and it also allows for personalization. I decided to use Ubuntu 7.04 as the host system, since VMware Server is included in the repositories.

Linux: The Little Operating System That Really Can

Filed under
Linux

lockergnome blogs: I began what I like to think of as my “Linux Adventure”, in February of 2006 on a short, much-frazzled shoestring. Recently, through the generosity of a friend, I was able to acquire several identical 600 MHz Celeron systems. What follows is my own, purely subjective, personal opinion of several distributions I’ve tried in the last two weeks.

My PCLinuxOS “WOW” moment

Filed under
PCLOS

mckooiker.byethost5: Last week I changed computer and since my “new” computer (Pentium4, 3.2GHz processor, 512Mb RAM) came with a bigger hard-disk I have more space to try new software and operating systems. The first distribution I installed was PCLinuxOS, and after one week of trying I will make a preliminary judgment today.

The Past 12 Linux Kernels Benchmarked

Filed under
Linux

Phoronix: We have finished our largest (and most time consuming) Linux performance comparison to date. We have taken the last 12 major kernel releases, from Linux 2.6.12 to Linux 2.6.23, built them from source and set out on a benchmarking escapade. This testing also includes the Linux 2.6.24-rc1 kernel. From these benchmarks you can see how the Linux kernel performance has matured over the past two and a half years.
