It's been a full four months since we have taken a look at the "sequel" to the RR4 distro, Sabayon. Named after an Italian desert, I am not sure how that relates itself to Linux. Perhaps because it's a tasty distro? There's no denying that this is one of the most robust and fresh looking distros out there, so that may very well be the case.
Celestia, an amazing 3D space simulation lets you explore our Solar System in great detail. You can download it for Linux, Windows, OSX or as source. If you’re an Ubuntu user (or Debian) simply open a terminal session and type:
One of the things I wanted to do this weekend was install Ubuntu on my Mac as a sandbox using Parallels as the virtual system. I figured the worst thing that could happen was that it'd force me to sit down and read the d*mn documentation, I downloaded an Ubuntu ISO.
I have put together a few quick steps to installing Iceweasel for anyone that would like to try the new browser, or would prefer it over the trademarked Firefox.
If you record TV shows using your MythTV DVR, you may want to play them on an iPod, a PSP, or even through a Windows Media Center system. Another desire might be to burn your recordings onto a DVD.
Generates ASCII Art (both the "pure", or black and white, and colour, or colour, varieties) from any JPEG, GIF or PNG you care to send it.
We're in the homestretch now. The only planned release candidate of openSUSE 10.2 was released a few days ago and final is expected to be released to the public on December 7. From this point on only showstopper and security bugfixes get integrated, so we are able to get a real good idea of 10.2 from this rc. I must say, from what I've seen, this is going to be a great release.
There is a quick way to type both MySQL database and table names quickly by enabling MySQL auto completion feature. This is called automatic rehashing.
apt-listbugs is a tool which retrieves bug reports from the Debian Bug Tracking System and lists them. Especially, it is intended to be invoked before each upgrade by apt in order to check whether the upgrade/installation is safe.
In my previous blog entry I wrote about the joys of upgrading hardware and having it Just Work (tm) in the Free Software operating system of your choice. Of course, I have not explored all the possibilities yet.
Maildir saves each mail in a separate file, it is much easier than it used to be to manipulate the mails. Everyone can write some simple script to do some cleanup based on its needs. A while ago I have stumbled across this python script that does most of the things I needed to cleanup maildir folders.
When XANDROS Desktop was released as the “Platform for Your Digital Life” I felt that they had finally brought the Linux Desktop to the mainstream. Now, I find that they have made it even easier for Novice and experienced Linux users with their all new, just released XANDROS DESKTOP PROFESSIONAL VER 4.
One thing lacking in Gnome is the ability to change the color scheme of your chosen theme. More precisely, gnome-theme-manager doesn’t currently allow you to customize your colors. You can change your icons, window borders, and controls, but you can’t change the color scheme. The color scheme is set within the chosen Theme itself and currently cannot be easily changed/edited by a user. This is about to change.
Previously on Playing with partitions I discussed how I fdisked an SD Ram card now as promised here is how I repartitioned a running server with an active oracle database.
As the custodian of IT at UWC, I will be pursuing a full
investigation into a total exit strategy for all Novell products from
the University of the Western Cape.
APTonCD is a tool with a graphical interface which allows you to create one or more CDs or DVDs (you choose the type of media) with all of the packages you’ve downloaded via APT-GET or APTITUDE, creating a removable repository that you can use on other computers.
Moglen is concerned that worried customers - and ergo falling revenues - could force Red Hat into a deal with Microsoft similar to Novell's and Ballmer keeps baiting the hook by saying he's "willing to do the same deal with Red Hat and other Linux distributors," giving Red Hat's base the ammo it needs.
It seems like a great idea: making a computer that's somewhere between the size of a cell phone and a laptop, for people to carry around and surf the Web. The Pepper Pad 3 is a new entry in this difficult field. It's a big slab-style tablet, almost 6 by 12 inches wide and an inch thick, with a small keyboard and a 7-inch touch screen.
Tensions are already high over Novell's patent agreement with Microsoft, but Ubuntu founder Mark Shuttleworth's invitation to openSUSE developers "concerned about the long term consequences" has kicked the tension up a notch.
