If you’re already involved in the KDE promotional community, would like to get involved, or you’re just plain nosey: we welcome you to join us at 1700 GMT April 15th on IRC #kde-promo on irc.freenode.net. Of course, you’ll also want to pay attention to details on our mailing list.
This meeting will be the first in a series; we’ll be meeting every second Sunday on IRC going forward.
Here’s the scenario. You’ve got a 6.10 box with Automatix2 installed, which you’ve used to install a number of third party additions to your nice, shiney Ubuntu box. Now you want to upgrade from 6.10 to 7.04 but you’re a bit gun shy as you recall what it was like to update to 6.10.
So what’s it going to be like this time? Let’s find out!
There's a TON of (mis)information out there that is touting the demise of PCLinuxOS and other such erroneous statements. To combat this, I'm making a nice little FAQ for everyone so that they are up to date on information having to do with PCLinuxOS.
Though the final release of the open source GPL version 3 license is still likely several months away, software vendors are already ramping up their efforts to help track violations.
While the new license is intended to help extend and protect software freedom, there are at least two software vendors that are likely to profit from GPL version 3.
This would not be the open source decade without Google.
Everyone who cares knows that Google's giant server farms run Linux. The company freely offers APIs for its most interesting features, it contributes to a wide variety of open source projects, and it will host a Developer Day on May 31 at 10 company offices around the world.
We all know about the rampant spam email problem. Nearly all of the potential solutions offered for it are based on the idea of the mail server receiving messages, classifying them as either spam or legitimate, and then processing further (deleting or forwarding messages) as appropriate. The problem with this strategy is that you end up using extra resources on the mail server.
Debian is one of the most common distributions in the world. With a possible total of twenty one CDs, it is also one of the biggest. As you may have gathered from the fact that this guide exists, Debian is not the easiest distribution. However, anybody that is relatively competent with computers should be able to use Debian (after all, I am!).
Gaming emulation under Linux has certainly come a long way, even in just the past few years. Compatibility is getting better, new APIs are being implemented and we are now at the point where select games run just as well under Linux as they do on Windows.
Finally! 9.2 is launched today. Thank you all for valuable help in making this happen!
9.2 is not only an important update with bug fixes and the new Speed Dial functionality, it's also a milestone in spreading Opera to new users around the world: Opera 9.2 for Windows ships with 31 languages :yes:
TransGaming has released Cedega™ 6.0. Rich with new features and functionality, ranging from improved graphics and performance to support for many new games, Cedega 6.0 remains the only commercial solution in the world that allows hundreds of triple A games to be played on the rapidly growing Linux operating system.
IT SEEMS THAT in the midst of writing our bit about installing Linux, the OS we suggested, PCLinuxOS, was choking, and may have been breathing its last gasps.
The main site is down, updates are no longer working, and my flame-box is full. It took quite a bit of searching, but I finally found several sites that are the dying throes of this, one of the best little distros going.
In November, Techalign released its Pioneer Linux distribution, based on Kubuntu, and available in several paid versions and one free version. I tested the recent Pioneer Linux Basic Release 2 (R2), which is based on Kubuntu Edgy 6.10. Apart from a few minor cosmetic changes and some additional applications, Pioneer isn't very different from a stock Kubuntu.
Dell's recent decision to ship desktops pre-loaded with Linux will have major repercussions for the operating system and its progress onto the business desktop, according to an industry analyst.
bzip2 and bunzip2 are file compression and decompression utilities. The bzip2 and bunzip2 utilities are newer than gzip and gunzip and are not as common yet, but they are rapidly gaining popularity. The bzip2 utility is capable of greater compression ratios than gzip. Therefore, a bzip2 file can be 10-20% smaller than a gzip version of the same file.
All Internet content carries a risk. Content Filtering helps companies and home users to stop unwanted data. It is used as part of Internet Firewalls or Proxy Servers to screen the content of all incoming Internet traffic. Content filtering usually works by specifying character strings that, if matched, indicate undesirable content that is to be screened out.
A process is a fundamental part of any operating system - irrespective of whether they are proprietary or Free. And all Operating systems usually have a lot of processes running at any given time. This begs the question, what exactly is a process ?
When most people think of Linux clusters, they think they are used for load-balancing purposes only. Yet, that's not the only functionality that makes Linux clusters on par with mainframes or high-end, mid-range Unix servers for many jobs. In this tip, I'll examine Linux cluster options and similar server approaches, like grid computing.
Certain patches seem to pop up occasionally on the kernel lists for years. One of those is the whole integrity management patch set from IBM; these patches were last covered in LWN in November, 2005. They are back for consideration yet again.
An early prototype of The Coop, Mozilla's new social networking component for Firefox, is now available for user testing. Announced earlier this week, The Coop is designed to integrate support for social networking features directly into the Firefox browser interface.
Almost all new Linux wanna be guru (read as users who want to switch to Linux) asks a question:
I want to switch to Linux completely from Windows XP SP2. Which Linux version will be best - Redhat, SuSE, or other? I use my PC for:
Watching DVD / MP3
I’m also willing to spend a small amount of money if required to purchase Linux version.
