Typos: Well Fedora never ships with the third-party repositories, since the mirrors contain some illegal stuff. Basically it’s a lot easier to install things like mp3 support, graphics drivers for you nvidia casrds and ofcourse your trusty mplayer or VLC player.
cnet: Ubuntu backer Canonical has pinned down some broad feature lists for its upcoming version of Linux for smaller mobile devices.
ITtoolbox Blogs: After quite a while away from the /etc directory I thought that I would get back to visiting it again. This time I will talk about the /etc/skel directory. The skel directory is short for skeleton which goes to show that absolutely everything has a skeleton hiding around somewhere. Including Linux.
computerworld: Mozilla's security chief Tuesday panned a pair of Firefox bugs revealed Monday as low-level threats but hours later changed her mind and said that when used together, they could pose a greater risk.
Wired Blogs: Much ink has been written about Ubuntu lately, how it's the best thing to happen to Linux since The Matrix. For sure, Ubuntu's reputation for user-friendliness is much deserved, but voices are currently rising in support of the recently released Debian 4.0 "Etch" desktop.
Linux Journal: Although GNU/Linux has long supported postscript format, full support for the related PDF file format has been longer in arriving. Today, whether you are printing, editing, or viewing PDF files, you now have the choice of a variety of applications on both the command line and the desktops. What follows is not an exhaustive list of choices, but a survey of the main tools available. Taken together, they should be enough to fill most of your PDF needs.
symphonyos.com: The Symphony OS Project is pleased to announce the release of Symphony OS 2007.06. This is our first release based fully on Ubuntu and we hope to speed up the release schedule over the next couple months to help us settle into our new Ubuntu base system.
Phoronix: Ubuntu 7.04 Feisty Fawn has been out for less than two months but tomorrow we will see the first alpha (or in this case it's called a "Tribe") release of Ubuntu 7.10 Gutsy Gibbon. We used the daily build of Ubuntu and Kubuntu Gutsy Gibbon to do some exploring prior to the release of Gutsy Gibbon Tribe 1 tomorrow morning.
talk bmc blogs: The FSF should realize by now their influence is waning. Look at the plethora of alternative licenses. Now they’re really hamstringing themselves with Version 3, taking the license further and further from where industry developers are heading. Developers are still the heart of the open source community, and their support is integral to success.
polishlinux.org: I started using Ubuntu Linux just when this distribution first appeared, 3.5 years ago with Warty Warthog. Since then I upgraded the system more or less regularly every six months, following the Ubuntu release cycle. I had to clean install only once since two years ago I changed my laptop. So, what was the biggest surprise in the recently released Ubuntu 7.04 to me?
Linux.com: The license changes keep coming. While work is wrapping up on the GNU General Public License version 3 (GPLv3), the Free Software Foundation has released the first discussion draft of the Affero GPLv3.
linux.com: Many Web sites feature RSS feeds and newsletter subscriptions that let you know when they've updated their contents, but unfortunately, a significant number of sites still don't. How can you keep up with them? Let's build a shell script to automate that task.
LinuxWorld: Andrew Morton, a kernel developer best known for filtering and testing new kernel submissions in a test kernel called the "-mm tree", listed three major problem areas in a May "State of the Kernel" talk at Google.
SourceForge, Inc. today said it has teamed-up with Wikispaces to integrate wikis directly into SourceForge.net, the world’s largest repository of open source software. The addition of wiki functionality into SourceForge.net gives the community a simpler and more efficient tool to mass-author the documentation and communication necessary to support its open source projects.
zdnet blogs: Jeff Jones has expanded his project to count security flaws (publicly reported and fixed) in the major workstation operating systems and his latest numbers show Windows Vista has by far the best security profile when compared to the major Linux distributions.
Groklaw: Do you remember when Novell filed the Microsoft deal agreements with the SEC, its annual report said, "No one license is critical to our business?" I took that as a possible hint of their future direction, post GPLv3. I take Novell's new press release, "Capgemini and Novell Enter Broad Mixed-Source Partnership", as confirmation.
nirak.net: I’ve started making a mental list of windows programs I am *really* going to miss now that I’m using Ubuntu as my main OS.
shift+backspace: Last night I was sitting around watching some baseball when I decided to bring out my aging and dying laptop in hopes of writing a new article for Shift+Backspace. I booted the old Inspiron 8500 to find out that I still had an old beta version of Linux Mint 3. This spawned a great idea!
eWeek: After devoting the bulk of its efforts over the past couple years to realizing the advanced server technology goals of Red Hat's Enterprise Linux product, the community-powered Fedora Project has turned its attention toward catching up with the distribution and packaging advances of its Linux rivals.
mozilla links: Continuing this week’s release spree, Netscape has released yet another version of the venerable Netscape Navigator. Netscape Navigator 9 Beta drops support for Internet Explorer’s rendering engine (Trident) and is now Gecko only.
