The domain name system (DNS) stores and associates many types of information with domain names, but most importantly, it translates domain names (computer hostnames) to IP addresses. It also lists mail exchange servers accepting e-mail for each domain. In providing a worldwide keyword-based redirection service, DNS is an essential component of contemporary Internet use.
Banshee 0.11.3 was released today and features a bunch small new features and bug fixes, but also includes some pretty big performance enhancements. Since I've already written a HOWTO for Banshee 0.11, I decided to updated it for Banshee 0.11.3. On with the installation instructions:
Birmingham City Council released a case study for their open source desktop trial. Buried in the 67 page document is the reason for choosing KDE: quick to configure and the bouncing launch feedback cursor.
Since yesterday I’ve been evaluating SuSe, and I’m pretty impressed by the distro. It’s an awesome distribution now. However the desktop installation did not go as smoothly as that installation on my laptop.
Creative Commons is pleased to announce that the O’Reilly Foundation has donated $10,000 towards CC’s $300,000 annual campaign goal. We are honored to be a receipient of such significant support.
Let me tell you a story. It is not about a man named Jed. Well, it could be - what with all those thousands of Debian developers out there, one of them might be called Jed. You never know.
A few weeks ago I installed Ubuntu Linux and decided that it will be my main Operating System for the months to come. I thought that I might pledge my allegiance to Linux and the Open Source community by taking this step.
In this article you will find ways of replacing text in a file according to given rules, either at the level of strings or of individual characters with sed.
There's been a lot of talk lately about Novel and Micorsoft's new deal. Most of it has been bad. Novel has done a lot good things to the Free Software world and the result of all this has been that once I saw openSUSE 10.2 available for download I went and got a hold of the iso and installed it on my system!
I swear one of these days the world will be overtaken by .pdf files. You see them everywhere! Instruction manuals seem to come as .pdf instead of print, maps & instructions online are in .pdf format. Now, using Ubuntu, how can we make our own PDF? Yeah, we can do it in a few steps below.
I have years of experience in Linux, and have used countless distributions in the past. Recently I got myself a Dell Inspiron 6400 Notebook, and installing Slackware on it, was pleasant at first, but than soon I realized many things where not working. Today, I thought for a change I’ll try out OpenSuSe 10.1 from Novell.
If you have been using Windows for any length of time you will have acquired some expertise and probably built up a collection of files you don't want to lose, two reasons why you might think moving to Linux is going to be too much trouble. It isn't, trust me and read on...
As we observed during our previous study ending on 24 September 2006, IE 7 beta was ahead of Firefox 2 beta in terms of the web visit share generated from France. Over the past 14 weeks, the new versions of both browsers have thus advanced at very different rates :
After I wrote my blog entry about the Feisty first alpha being available I decided to give it a try. I think the reason I do these crazy things is that it now takes virtually no time to try a Kubuntu Linux distribution. The process is down to:
For several years now I've been looking for something Bill Gates said. And through Windows NT, you can see it throughout the design. In a weak sense, it is a form of Unix. There are so many of the design decisions that have been influenced by that environment.
Art production in an open source environment is more of a challenge than most people think. I know this from my experience in the Ubuntu interface design project in past few years. It has become clear to me that it is impossible to produce high quality visual content in an environment that is lacking coordination. That insight prompted me to investigate other models that could be adopted and used in the open source context.
I have customized my fluxbox, I have my own set of key binding to execute programs I usually runs. I have my root menu, where I can access some programs which I do not bind on any specific key. I have my startup script which automatically load all the programs when I login. I compile my own fluxbox, and now I can’t feel comfortable without fluxbox.
Kristian Høgsberg announced that he is working on a new firewire stack to replace the stack currently in the Linux kernel. Ben Collins expressed some concerns about the decision to abandon the existing stack, "the tree is years old, and a lot of work has been put into it.
For a number of reasons, I was recently "forced" to work on an Apple machine for longer than I would have liked. Don't get me wrong: I like OS X, and I think there is a great deal the open source community can learn from it. However, it doesn't seem to be geared up for people like me: 11000 emails literally kill Apple Mail.
