Linux has the remarkable ability to be adapted and scaled to specific purposes. It can run corporate servers, personal computers and even small consumer electronics devices. Open source isn't a CE manufacturer's only choice for a micro OS -- among other options are WinCE and Wind River. Unlike other applications, however, a Linux system demands no royalties.
Many Web sites host discussion boards to bring together people with common interests, to help diagnose problems, or to gain a following for a project. Popular discussion board software includes phpBB, Invision Power Board, and, on the low end, PunBB. One system that is growing in popularity is Simple Machines Forum (SMF), which offers extended features while keeping to a minimalistic approach.
We have to work together to keep free software freely available. It will be a failure if the world moves from paying for shrink-wrapped Windows to paying for shrink-wrapped Linux.
Linux virtualization frenzy has a new challenger: the simplified virtualization technology, KVM, has made it into the standard kernel. Could it be a better approach to using the virtualization features of new Intel and AMD processors?
Astronomy software comes in many forms—from the details of computer intensive Grid computing of the distribution of stars (okay that’s astrophysics) to rendering the night sky in artistically detailed and sumptuous graphics. Being a devoted backseat observer to the evolution of the Universe in general and GNU/Linux software in specific, I thought it was time to show off what I consider to be the elite of desktop elegance.
i read ian murdock's blog entry on the importance of backwards compatibility i found myself at once agreeing and wincing. backwards compatibility, like most things in life, is neither all good or all bad.
Judith M.S., Head of the Indonesian Internet Café or Warnet Association, has said she considered that the government's activities will not be hampered by the utilization of open source software.
Adobe Systems Incorporated today announced the availability of Adobe(R) Flash(R) Player 9 for Linux, the next-generation client runtime for engaging with Flash content and applications on Linux open source operating systems.
The book’s forward and first chapter both discuss this philosophical distribution. Details on installing and configuring Ubuntu begin in chapter 2. The Ubuntu developers have done an outstanding job at making Ubuntu as easy to install as any other distribution, despite its Debian ancestry.
NimbleX is a small slackware-based distribution that made its way onto DistroWatch's Waiting List last September. While many on the list seem to stop development and disappear off the net, it appears NimbleX is progressing onward. Their site has undergone a recent update as well as their distro. NimbleX 2007 was released on Christmas Day and I decided it sounded like an interesting project to test. In NimbleX I found a wonderful candidate for your small linux needs.
Linux & Unix being network operating systems have a number of powerful tools which aid the network administrator to find out a wealth of data about their network and the Internet. One such tool is the ubiquitous traceroute.
There are so many distros today, one really has a hard time determining which they should try and which should they just kind of ignore. Recently the Zenwalk community release version 4.2, which isn't much different from previous releases, but the first for me to try here at KnoLinux to review. Why have I stayed away?
Fedora Core 6 was released on October 24, 2006 and scheduled to come out a half-year later is the seventh major release for the Fedora Project. However, unlike Yarrow, Tettnang, Heidelberg, Stentz, Bordeaux, and Zod, Fedora 7 is shaping up to be the most ambitious release yet. With all the work and reform going into Fedora 7 it poses the question, will Fedora 7 be Linux's knight in shining armor?
Linus Torvalds explains why the unexpected resilience of kernel version 2.6 has delayed the move to kernel version 2.7. In this two minute video he said that when work started on 2.6, he was worried that major changes would destabilise the kernel.
Sun Microsystems today began touting its Solaris 10 operating system as "a more strategic alternative to commercial Linux distributions; with more applications, more x86 platform support, a larger installed base and cutting edge-technology."
The preliminary hearing for Oakland software developer Hans Reiser on charges that he murdered his estranged wife, Nina Reiser, was thrown into turmoil Tuesday when the couple's son failed to return from Russia to testify in the case.
Nadia Derbey posted a set of patches to the Linux Kernel Mailing List titled AKT, Automatic Kernel Tunables, explaining, "this is a series of patches that introduces a feature that makes the kernel automatically change the tunables values as it sees resources running out."
One of the great things about Linux.conf.au is the chance to mingle with some of the brightest lights in the open source community. For example, Jeff Dike, author and maintainer of User-Mode Linux is here this week to talk about UML and the Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM). During one of the breaks on Monday, I sat down with Dike to talk about UML's immediate future, and picked his brain about other virtualization technologies.
One of the more noteworthy changes that users you will likely see in the next release of Ubuntu’s Feisty Fawn and in Gnome 2.18, will be a new Gnome Control Center. This article will poke around the current Gnome Control Center, as it is in the Herd 2 build of Feisty Fawn (which includes Gnome 2.17.5) to give users an idea what to expect.
It took more than 17 hours in planes and a trip through customs, but I've made the trek from Denver, Colorado, to Sydney, Australia, for Linux.conf.au (LCA) 2007. Already it looks like the trip was worthwhile.
