The benefit of SELinux is twofold. First, it replaces the user-based model with a policy-centric model. Every action, like running an application or reading and modifying data, is controlled by a security policy. Actions that violate the policy are denied. Additionally, SELinux compartmentalizes the various applications and processes running on the system. This not only helps in isolating a break-in, but also confines the damage caused by one compromised service.
More Linux companies should look at striking a deal with Microsoft. This is the line from Novell SA country manager Stafford Masie who was speaking at the CITI Foss Forum in Cape Town last week.
saidar is a curses-based application to display system statistics. Statistics include CPU, processes, load, memory,swap, network I/O and disks I/O along with their free space.
"Linux ... lends itself well to users with specific requirements," said Nate Melby, an instructor at Kaplan University's School of Information Systems and Technology. The real task is finding a distribution that suits a potential user's needs.
A preliminary hearing is set for today for Hans Reiser -- the Oakland man charged with murder after his wife disappeared.
Recent versions of most Linux distributions support non-English languages out of the box by using the Unicode standard. I was pleasantly surprised when I found out that I was able to read and write in Greek -- my native language -- on a fresh Ubuntu Edgy Eft installation without any manual intervention. Unfortunately, my happiness lasted only until I tried to open files with Greek file names. Instead of Greek characters I saw garbage. Convmv is the right tool for that job.
Red Hat Inc's executive vice president of worldwide sales, Alex Pinchev, has dismissed the impact that Oracle Corp's entry into the Linux support business could have on Red Hat, insisting Oracle does not really know what it is doing.
It is true that at its core, Sun is a hardware company with the bulk of its revenue being generated from selling high end servers, workstations and storage solutions. But it has also invested heavily in developing robust software. And what is amusing is that it does not charge anything for most of the software it has developed and has been providing it free of cost. OpenOffice.org, Netbeans, Java and Solaris being a case to the point.
I was recently offered the opportunity to review a copy of "OpenVPN - Building and integrating Virtual Private Networks" by Markus Feilner. This book covers everything from installing OpenVPN, configuring it, and using it in mixed environments. Read on for a review of this excellent book.
Hovsepian was Novell's head honcho for only a few months when he inked a $442 million deal in November with Microsoft that covers Windows and Linux product integration, patent protection, and marketing. A short time after, all hell broke loose.
Recently a friend of mine was asking how to disable locking (prompting for a password) after resuming from closing the laptop lid. I checked out some of the immediate places first. Maybe it was in “Power Options” or “Screensaver”. No. Where else would it be?
Looking at 10.2 and asking if it is ready as Enterprise Desktop. Then realizing that is the wrong question for the computer at hand, and installing Linux Mint 2.0.
If you haven’t done so already, go read the OLPC HIG now. I swear to God, this document is a work of pure, inspired genius. Will it work? I don’t know. But if you have an ounce of interest in your body for design, you will admire their balls and creativity.
A non-profit organisation that describes itself as "the centre of gravity of Linux" has just gone through its second round of sackings in as many years though on the surface it does not seem to be exactly short of funds.
