If the first ten days in the aftermath of the launch of SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10, the brand-spanking-new server operating system from Novell Inc, is any indication, then perhaps there is finally some hope that Novell's plummeting NetWare business will not take the company down with it.
Notebook PCs and Linux are learning to get along better than ever before. Linux has come a long way since its initial inception as an academic development project undertaken by Linus Torvalds during his college years. It's no longer the sole province of the enthusiast crowd or just a hobby horse for academia. In fact, this progressive platform has become the poster child for the Open Source movement.
There’s a lot of great distros out there, but Debian just meets my taste. I’ve been using Debian over a year now and this is why I love it: Freedom.
Chip guru AMD has announced that it's going to drop the ATi brand name following its takeover of the Canadian graphics underdog. Gareth Cater from AMD told Custom PC that 'the new company will be called AMD,' meaning that we could shortly be seeing AMD-branded Radeon graphics chips.
Want to protect your SOHO machine or LAN from rootkits and malware, but want something a little more real-time than simply running Chkrootkit or another rootkit detector after the fact? Consider OSSEC-HIDS, an open source host intrusion detection system.
You can verify connectivity or status of your network Interfaces/card using standard Linux command. Open your terminal and use following commands:
I do not believe in the OLPC (One Laptop Per Child) project, a.k.a. the "$100 laptop". I couldn't possibly believe in a "handmill laptop", and I don't believe this is the solution for the 3rd world countries. I very much liked (given the intended audience) the proposed design and some mockups.
The 126.96.36.199 stable kernel is available. There is a fairly long list of important fixes this time around, but none with CVE (vulnerability) numbers attached. More Info.
Linux system vulnerabilities have amplified in monstrous proportion, with perfunctory probes and break-in attempts occurring at regular frequencies. In times where patching itself needs to make good progress, this title from O’Reilly offers some insightful tools and techniques to prevent your Linux server from being compromised.
The Amarok project has announced an artwork contest for their upcoming live CD, Amarok Live, for fancy new version 1.4. The contest includes among other things bootsplash screens, wallpapers and Amarok splash screens.
For my money, I'd first look to see if the company is an official partner of its Linux distributor. If I'm going to buy a SUSE Linux-powered computer, for example, I'd rather get it from someone who's a Novell partner rather than someone whose only connection to Novell is that they downloaded a copy of openSUSE 10.1.
Fedora Core 6 Test 2 is out. I’ve been running Rawhide (the development version of Fedora Core), updating it daily and installing it periodically from a local network server, but the test releases provide a welcome opportunity to install from optical disc.
The step from FC5 to FC6 is smaller and more evolutionary than FC4 to FC5. Highlights:
I have a spare machine that needs a job. My idea is simple. I am going to take this machine to work with me tomorrow and attempt to use it in our Microsoft environment. I chose to use the brand new PCLinuxOS MiniMe 0.93 distribution. PCLinuxOS has not been around very long, but they are definitely heading in the right direction. This series of articles will document my successes and my failures.
Sometimes you might have a need to make an image file consisting mostly of text -- to use as a banner on a Web page, for instance. You can always make the banner in an image editor, but there's a much quicker way -- one that lends itself to automatic generation from scripts using arbitrary text.
A new survey hosted by the University of Oxford indicates that the use of open source software is on the increase at further and higher educational establishments in the UK.
Fifteen years after the introduction of the Linux kernel, next week's LinuxWorld conference will focus not on whether to use open source software - the market has answered that question - but on how to deploy, secure and manage the technology as part of a business IT operation.
Although open-source software can be customized to meet a company's specific needs, its inherent complexity could dent the profitability of independent software vendors (ISVs), says Microsoft.
