Today a Dirk Dashing update has been released for Linux, to fix several bugs found by Linux gamers. This include fixed another problem with the game locking up on some distributions, camera movement near the edge of map, and a bug when restarting a level after dying and camera is not positioned correctly.
We've all seen plenty of Linux computers on a stick before, right? But check the TurboLinux Wizpy which brings all that portable Linux PC and USB mass storage goodness wrapped inside a DivX capable MP3 player. The Wizpy features a 1.7-inch OLED display, 4GB of flash memory, an FM radio, and additional support for OGG/WMA/AAC formats. It comes pre-loaded with Turbolinux Fuji and a smattering of apps such as Firefox, Thunderbird, and Skype.
LinuxBasic.org, an online community devoted to helping people learn to install and run Linux, has announced its second free Linux class. "An Introduction to Linux Basics" aims to instill a basic understanding about Linux for beginners who want to know more about how the system works, according to the site.
After the usual new-release downloading frenzy died down a bit, I downloaded the 3.3 gigabyte DVD .iso image, stoked the boiler of my test PC, and put Fedora Core 6 through its paces. My mission: to determine if FC6 is suitable for production systems, or if it's better suited as a bleeding-edge testbed.
If MS plans to sue for intellectual property related issues, IBM is unlikely to choose an obsequious posture. Today's leaders at big blue don't cower to opposition. Moreover, even when tides turn, they demonstrate some unique strategy of their own.
Fluxbuntu is a light-weight, standards-compliant, Ubuntu-based Linux distribution featuring the Fluxbox window manager.The project’s primary goal is to develop an operating system that would run on a wide range of mobile devices and computers, both low-end and high-end.
OpenVPN is an easy-to-use open source VPN software based on SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) that offers cross-platform interoperability. The majority of OpenVPN tutorials I've found describe how users can connect to a corporate network from their laptops over insecure networks, such as the wireless network in a hotel. By contrast, the setup I'm about to describe is better suited for permanently connecting entire networks -- for example, branch offices to the headquarters of a company.
If you ever partition your hard disk you will find that no matter how smart you think you have organized your partitions you will always come to a situation where you have to play around with your partitions. Fortunately with linux and indeed all *nix based systems it is not only easy but often an integral part of the system. I am going to go through a couple of scenarios.
This is not, by any means a comprehensive look at the differences between KDE and Gnome, but it should give new users a small taste of their different strengths and weaknesses and their philosophical approaches to usability.
Fedora Core is often called a test version of Red Hat, but many believe that it deserves to be recognised as a fully fledged distribution in its own right. Led by a community and sponsored by Red Hat, Fedora is probably one of the most popular GNU/Linux distributions in the world, with users including Wikipedia. It recently reached its sixth release, so let's see what's inside.
This tutorial walks you through implementing disk quotas for both users and groups on Linux, using a virtual filesystem, which is a filesystem created from a disk file. Since quotas work on a per-filesystem basis, this is a way to implement quotas on a sub-section, or even multiple subsections of your drive, without reformatting. This tutorial also covers quotactl, or quota's C interface, by way of an example program that can store disk usage in a SQLite database for monitoring data usage over time.
I've always thought that mosaics were an interesting art form, so when I ran across Metapixel a while back I noted it as an app worth checking out. Metapixel is a single purpose tool, but it does its job very well. In no time you can create an impressive photo mosaic using your existing photos and a couple commands.
- Is Microsoft Violating Some Patents Covering Open Source?
- IBM sees Novell/MS deal benefiting Linux
- GPL3 authors to sabotage Novell Microsoft patent pact ...
- Novell will fork any Open Source app that moves to GPL3!!
- Linux users to Microsoft: What 'balance sheet liability'?
- OIN speaks out on the Novell/Microsoft pact
Robert Stimson of analyst firm W.R. Hambrecht initiated coverage of Red Hat with a bang on Tuesday. Despite facing threats from giant Oracle and the strange alliance between former enemies Microsoft and Novell that obviously targets Red Hat, the Hatters and their stock were labeled as a “buy” with a target stock price of $21.
A few weeks ago I started seeing the “Blue Screen of Death” on my Sony Vaio PCG-K35 laptop every 10 minutes or so, making the computer nothing more than an overpriced 7 lb. brick. I pulled it out last week and was unable to find the activation keys to Windows XP Pro and Microsoft Office that came with the laptop from the OEM. This weekend I installed the Ubuntu Linux 6.10.
French telecommunications gear maker Alcatel SA said Tuesday it has sued Microsoft Corp. in a U.S. federal court for patent infringement.
Open Country, a next-generation systems management software company, today announced the debut of OCM™ Webmin Plus, an enhanced release of the popular Webmin open source IT system administration tool. OCM Webmin Plus, developed in partnership with Webmin creator Jamie Cameron, is the first open source product from Open Country, providing a new, low-cost way to easily manage Linux computing environments.
I have been using Unix-like systems for 25 years and Linux for half of that. So I guess I have a bit of Linux-specific experience. Yesterday I actually played with Linux a bit. That is, like a casual user might. And my experience was probably like what a casual user would have. You see, I had just build a speaker cabinet and tossed a couple of speakers in it. The PA amplifier was what was going to drive them but I needed an audio source other than my niece screaming into a microphone.
histring simply highlights strings using ANSI terminal escape codes. It is extremely small and lighting fast. I almost use it everywhere in my script where I need a quick peek into large output. Moreover, you almost don't need to learn it, as its syntax is almost identical to grep.
