As with major Linux distributions, making it easy for a novice to install and configure is one of the most important keys to piquing their interest and with PC-BSD installation was just as easy as installing Xandros.
The origins of LDAP begin with the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) based in Geneva. ITU began setting email standards which required a directory of names (and other information) that could be accessed across networks in a hierarchical fashion not dissimilar to DNS. The result of their work resulted in the X.500 series of standards which defined DAP (Directory Access Protocol), the protocol for accessing a networked directory service.
Finally version 2.0 of Frozen Bubble the highly addictive puzzle game has been released. Besides some graphical improvements like 3D-based images and antialised messages the developers added network multiplayer support.

If you want to select your preferred applications for Web browser,Mail reader and terminal emulator you can select very easily from gnome preferred application option.
Suppose there was a software category so ubiquitous that virtually everyone used it and anyone could get the software for free. Suppose, also, that the software was highly standards-based, so much so that it did not require any patented or proprietary technologies to work. That software would be a perfect candidate for open source, right?
Rickford Grant is not new to books for novice Linux users (see Linux Made Easy and Linux For Non-Geeks). This is the first one I’ve read, however. My motive here is to find Linux distros that are truly for Linux novices, and that also have books available for them. There is also the hope (perhaps vain) that there is a book and distro for the novice computer user.
Like most languages, PHP allows developers to accomplish the same tasks using several different methods. I think most of us stick with whatever habits we fall into without really ever examining which methods might be the most efficent: Is there any performance difference between for and while? Is the ternary operator slower or faster than an if statement?
Over the years, this question is raised again and again. AFAIK last year was declared as "Linux Desktop Year" (or is it current year?). I got a nice baseball cap from Novell on LinuxWorld San Francisco, which says "Your desktop is ready."
Also: Linux is ready for the desktop, and this is no longer a debatable matter
Somebody recently noted that, what with all the bombing and killing and tyrannical madness going on in the world, how can we waste all this time talking about free software? Surely there's more important stuff to worry about? Free software does, in my opinion, make significant strides forward in creating long-term peace for humanity.
Sure, you can use the plain vanilla Firefox, but even though Firefox is already a gazillion times easier to use than IE, not to mention more reliable, adding selected extensions increases its power and adds functionality that you didn't even realize you wanted. In my opinion, Firefox extensions are awesome.
I have two office systems. My main one is my IBM T41 workhorse laptop. It is the one I haul everywhere and do everything with, to, for , and on. it can't be down or I cry a lot . So making major changes to it is not something I do lightly. Till last night, both systems ran Fedora Core 5. Today the laptop is Ubuntu 6.10.
As you know openSUSE released the first beta in the 10.2 developmental cycle on the 26th and tuxmachines has been checking it out in preparation for our report. This feature and version freeze release came with quite a few annoying bugs, but most didn't apply to my testing. I did encounter a coupla problems of my own and little or no new eye candy was found. But how did the system perform overall?
There are several programs fulfilling the same or similar functions to be installed on a single system at the same time. For example, many systems have several text editors or different web browsers installed,Multimedia players,graphics editors at once. galternatives is graphical setup tool for the alternatives system.
There are a plethora of books hitting the market on the Ubuntu Linux distribution, and so far they've all been pretty good. But this one is at the head of the pack for getting started with your penguin experience... The Official Ubuntu Book by Benjamin Mako Hill, Jono Bacon, Corey Burger, Jonathan Jesse, and Ivan Krstic. It's a collaborative book writing effort that pays off on a number of levels.
This will be a series of posts called the Adventures in a New Ubuntu 6.10 Clean Install. I will document my entire experience in preparing for a re-installation of Ubuntu from 6.06.1 to Ubuntu 6.10 with a format.
Ubuntu 6.10, codename Edgy Eft, has been released on the 26th October 2006. This is the latest version of Ubuntu available and this tutorial will go through the installation process of Ubuntu Edgy Eft using the 6.10 release.
It is a new day. An important day, because on this morning the call that I have been waiting all of my life for has finally come. Yes, Mozilla wants my super powers!
rsync is a replacement for rcp (and scp) that has many more features. It uses the “rsync algorithm” which provides a very fast method for remote files into sync. It does this by sending just the differences in the files across the link, without requiring that both sets of files are present at one of the ends of the link beforehand. Here are some of the tools to manage rsync easily.
The switch to Ubuntu has had it’s ups and downs. But one annoyance I had was the un-styled ‘widgets’ in Firefox look like *ss. I found one person who customized it a little bit to work with Linux. I made a couple minor tweaks and repackaged it and am now sharing with all.
I first installed Fedora Core 6 in a Parallels Virtual Machine. That was fine, but I quickly realized that I wanted to investigate this more deeply, and especially wanted to look at the Xen integration. So, I created CD's and did the install on "Trusty Old Spare". Yeah.. well, yes, but.. things didn't go so well.
