I use Ubuntu Linux. Have done since the day it was released. And I like it. However, I’ve had more than one argument with Jono about what I perceive as its increasing move towards encouragement of non-free software.
On December 20, 2006, scale-up Linux experts will come together in an interactive online event to examine the present and future of large scale-up Linux systems and to determine whether they are ready to meet the demands of today’s most challenging applications.
IDC HAS GOT out its crystal ball for 2007 and the omens don't look good for Microsoft, it predicts. It reckons Microsoft's anti-piracy efforts on client operating systems will backfire, and that will drive customers towards Linux.
When it became clear that SCO wouldn’t prevail, Microsoft expected only to face close partner IBM. Microsoft did not brace for Novell, an adversary with a decades-long score to settle with Redmond. Through discovery, Microsoft’s correspondence with SCO is, or soon will be in, Novell’s hands, and it’s a safe bet that it will contain more than demand for a license fee and a copy of a certified check. .
My IBM ThinkPad T41 on the other hand is my primary work computer. It goes to the trade shows, it runs VMware, and most importantly, it is where I read my email and calendar. With Evolution. Off an MS Exchange 2003 server. The last Distro I had running on the T41 that was working well for this is Fedora Core 6. I used past tense there because the comments on the last post made me decide to put openSUSE 10.2 on the T41 on my first day of vacation.
In the last article we parted ways after configuring a base FreeBSD system, enabling it with upgrades via cvsup and portsupgrade, and securing it with a simple ipfw2 firewall. The previous article created a solid foundation which this article will build on, covering the configuration of Postfix, amavisd-new, ClamAV, SpamAssassin, MySQL and finally SquirrelMail for web mail. The final setup will have all the bells and whistles of a high end-mail setup.
I recently decided to retire Red Hat 7 after seven years of loyal service as a firewall/router-OS on my home LAN. Like a red-headed stepchild grown old, it had become cranky from extended neglect, and no longer would even shutdown or reboot without issuing nasty messages. So, after downloading/burning the latest Debian 3.1 R4 net install CD, I popped it into the K6 box's CD drive and booted her up.
Recovery is Possible (RIP) sounds like a 12-step program, or some kind of self-help regime. RIP is (yet another) specialized Linux rescue distribution. RIP is for experienced admins who do not need a lot of handholding, or all the bells and whistles of a Jabba-sized live CD Linux, like Knoppix.
You can't really call it the Holy Trinity of open source because there are four of them, but Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP, also known as LAMP, are what Free and Open Source software world revolves around. If you want to learn PHP quickly and efficiently, Ellie Quigley's book is the one to pick up.
Mozilla has officially released the first public alpha build of Firefox 3.0. Codenamed Gran Paradiso, Firefox 3 includes the new Gecko 1.9 rendering engine which leverages the open source Cairo rendering framework and features heavily refactored reflow algorithms that improve Firefox layout functionality and resolve some long-standing CSS bugs.
I like many love KDE, but like many I’ve also complained about most of the KDE apps. Personally i loathe the naming of most Linux apps. It’s gnu this and K that and gtk this and qt that. Overall i just want nice look and feel. For a week, I’ve dedicated myself to KDE applications in their native environment.
Shockingly (Shockingly!!!) a Microsoft-Novell-commissioned survey reports that the world would end tomorrow but for the pact. Never mind, as Matthew Aslett notes, that one-third of the respondents had never even heard of the deal.
When I started to get a full blown KDE 4 environment running, I found it very inconvenient to constantly switch screens. On the other hand, Xnest was not bearable. Lucky enough, there is Xephyr.
Robert McQueen has posted a web log entry about getting video teleconferencing from the OLPC XO machine. This is pretty damn hot and I’m very excited about it. It basically sells itself.
How cool would it be to be able to video conference from a laptop that only costs around $100 or so?
When the average computer user thinks about security, they usually think about reactive measures like anti-virus programs or security patches -- responses to a specific threat. A more efficient approach is to configure a system securely from the start.
Palmer testified during a preliminary hearing in Alameda County Superior Court in Oakland for Hans Reiser, 42, charged with murdering his estranged wife. Says son never called anyone about wife's disappearance.
Ok guys and gals, the underground Open Addict office mega-complex is being overwhelmed with spare hardware. Well, not really but I've got some spare stuff that I'd like to give away. What better way to do it than hold a (insert radio announcer voice) December Spare Hardware Giveaway(tm)!!
Several FTP clients for KDE have been either discontinued or their development has been stalled. But the good news is that the most famous FTP client is under constant development and its name is Konqueror. Using Konqueror as an FTP client is a good idea because you can have remote files inside your file manager, as if your files were on your HDD.
A common problem is that you receive a file in a format that you cannot easily read because you don’t have an appropriate application. The most common case of this problem is that you want to retrieve the text from a Microsoft Word file. It’s not always obvious how to retrieve the text.
This two-part paper presents an analysis of the security mechanisms, risks, attacks, and defenses of the two most commonly used password management systems for web browsers, found in Internet Explorer and Firefox.
