7-Zip is lot more efficient at achieving high compression rates than most of the other popular compression tools(including gzip and bzip2). The difference in the sizes of compressed files was not trivial
In my opinion the current software-packaging/software-install system for Linux systems is a crappy thing: Every distribution packages the most interesting and important packages for itself: KDE stuff, GNOME, compiler, apache, and add on packages like firefox. Therefore, each work is repeated not only twice but dozens of times. This is dumb.
Webmin is a web-based interface for system administration for Unix. Using any browser that supports tables and forms (and Java for the File Manager module), you can setup user accounts, Apache, DNS, file sharing and so on. Webmin consists of a simple web server, and a number of CGI programs which directly update system files like /etc/inetd.conf and /etc/passwd. The web server and all CGI programs are written in Perl version 5, and use no non-standard Perl modules.
Vancouver Community College made the switch to Linux from a mixed environment of NetWare and Windows operating systems one year ago when it purchased IBM blade servers, which came with Linux pre-installed, to replace its aging infrastructure. Novell’s Suse Linux Enterprise Server 9 now accounts for over 50 per cent of VCC’s server environment, which has 40 physical servers and double that number of virtual machines.
The U.S. Commerce Department said Wednesday it would renew its authority over the company that manages Internet domain names beyond Sept. 30, when the U.S. government had been expected to permanently cede control.
Sometimes it's the simple ideas that produce powerful applications -- like a terminal emulator that provides several shells side by side in a single window. A few days ago, I was looking for a way to split windows in Konsole when I ran across QuadKonsole, a program that embeds several Konsole instances in a single window, making it easy to switch between shell sessions and keep an eye on all of them at once.
Three political groups in the European Parliament (EP) have warned that software patents are re-emerging into EU politics with an EP vote scheduled for next month.
By publishing its Opteron socket specification, AMD is making it easier for chip makers to design processors that just snap into an AMD motherboard.
Open source software maker Novell Inc. said Wednesday it received a delisting notice from Nasdaq and a default notice from Wells Fargo, related to the company's delay in filing third-quarter results.
More than 200 members of the KDE community, industry partners, and interested users will be gathering next week for aKademy 2006 at the Trinity College in Dublin, Ireland to work on the next-generation desktop, KDE 4, and desktop standards.
It was a year ago today that we were here to share with you what to expect from NVIDIA's 1.0-8XXX Linux display drivers. Most notably in that preview was word of SLI (Scalable Link Interface) finally coming to the proprietary Linux drivers. When that support did finally come, we at Phoronix were quickly disappointed with its indigent support. Today for your reading pleasure are a few details as to what NVIDIA Linux users can expect to see from the upcoming 1.0-9XXX driver series.
Seriously, how many times must users and businesses be kicked in the face before they buy a clue? Before they realize that they don't have to stay in the abusive Microsoft relationship. The answer seems to be: an unlimited number of times.
After having read the last DistroWatch Weekly, Issue 169, 18 September 2006, I was tempted to express my anger against the futile loss of energy in the "licensing fight" that led into cdrtools forking in Debian — but also in other distros.
The Free Software Foundation urgently needs to explain how software governed by the current General Public License will interact with that governed by a successor now under development, the leader of the Open Source Development Labs said Wednesday.
Will people pay seven figures-plus for open source? Of course. Just ask SugarCRM, Red Hat, JBoss, or MySQL. Open source does not equal poverty; open source equals massive opportunity. Five years from now, no one will bother selling proprietary bits anymore.
It's either the Microsoft way or the highway for computer users according to a survey about the economic impact the Vista operating system could have in Europe.
Novell plans an October launch for its Suse Linux Enterprise Real-Time product, an operating system geared for Wall Street traders and others who watch every microsecond of the clock.
Once again, it is the time of the month when new ATI display drivers are presented and it's now the task of Phoronix to evaluate this latest package. Over the past several months, we have seen a horde of improvements. Today with the release of the 8.29.6 fglrx drivers there have not been many changes that affect the end-user, but still there are some items worth mentioning.
IT managers face a problem determining what products and policies are best to properly secure their network. The problem with many security products is that it is hard to validate their claims. Penetration testing is a process for testing the security of networks by imitating an attacker. Conducting a successful penetration test involves a great deal of knowledge and a wide variety of software, including some of the following open source tools.
Anyone could have guessed that my undergrad thesis work is centered on Open Source; more accurately, we deal with devising strategies for Linux and Open Source adoption and penetration growth in the SMB sector of Guayaquil, Ecuador. Most of the conclusions are not Earth-shattering revelations, but things we already know. But there’s one particular thing you and me know for certain… yet we’re doing practically nothing about it!
