opensourcelearning: It’s been a few years since I dabbled in BSD. Linux has it’s roots in Unix, but BSD is Unix. But why is BSD appealing?
theithacajournal: Fifteen members of the Ithaca Free Software Association congregated for what they called “Installfest” Saturday in the Borg Warner community room in the Tompkins County Public Library. Community members could bring in their computer to get a free Linux installation and crash course on some of its perks.
zdnet blogs: As most people know Linus Torvalds tore a rather uninformed rant out of Sun last week. Here’s a cynical prediction (but backed up by past behaviour of Sun):
linux.com: I've been using OpenWrt on my Linksys router for a year or so. I take it for granted -- I ignore it because it just works. But back at X-Wrt.org, which is a related project, not a competitor to OpenWrt, developers have been busy creating a new user interface that both extends OpenWrt and makes it easier to use.
OSWeekly: It's wild, but for a company that has continuously pointed out their lack of interest in getting into the desktop market, Google sure has been pushing the application side of things awfully hard lately.
Debian Administration: Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) developed a series of 64-bit extensions to their 32-bit RISC-based Intel IA-32 (i386) compatible processors. AMD sell their AMD64 (x86-64) architecture processors under a range of names: Athlon 64; Turion 64; Phenom; Opteron and Sempron (only the latest generation).
Sometimes it can be handy to set up your own repository to prevent from downloading the remote repository over and over again. This tutorial shows how to create a CentOS mirror for your local network.
Aaron J. Seigo: dannya asked me tonight what had gone on with plasma this last week and when i looked over the commits it sort of surprised me how much had =) ruphy did up a little screen cast showing the new icon hovers, but most of the rest of things happened beneath the covers.
the Inquirer: MICROSOFT'S security on its Windows Genuine Advantage has been much mocked on the Linux boards over the weekend after it thought that a copy of Xubuntu was a real copy of Windows.
Groklaw: The first patent applications we are invited to try to disqualify by looking for prior art have been posted on the Peer to Patent Project website. This is the project working to provide the USPTO with information about prior art during the application process.
Daniweb: A member of Skype staff posting in the Linux support forum there seems to have taken a course in customer relations from
ComputerWorld: Mark Shuttleworth made news in 2002 when he fulfilled a lifelong ambition and became the first South African into space, paying US$20 million to be a civilian cosmonaut on an eight-day flight aboard a Russian Soyuz spacecraft. In 2004, he founded Ubuntu Linux to bring the operating system to people around the world. He is also the founder of HBD Venture Capital and the non-profit Shuttleworth Foundation.
In this week's KDE Commit-Digest: Work on engine configurability, data management, a packaging system for Plasmoids and themes, and new refinements in desktop icon interaction in Plasma. The Oxygen window decoration and widget are both moved into kdebase.
Phoronix: The Light edition of the Mint 3.0 Linux distribution is now available. Compared to the regular version of Mint, the Light edition ships without proprietary software, patented technologies, and support for restricted formats. We took a peek this afternoon at this GNOME-based LiveCD distribution.
Linux App Finder: I often find myself working with data that's stored on multiple computers, and with KDE's network transparency this is an easy thing to do. But of course there are times when network access isn't available, and in this situation being able to easily sync data between two drives is a huge convenience. My solution is Smb4K.
Frederik's Blog: Today kernel developer Con Kolivas announced that he will stop developing his Linux patch which improves desktop performance. The CK patch set was popular especially amongst desktop users who want to get maximum performance out of their machine.
datamation: The third version of the GNU General Public License (GPL) won't be released until the end of June. Yet, already, it is proving one of the most controversial developments ever in the free and open source software (FOSS)communities.
FOSSwire: Feed technology such as RSS and Atom is something that a lot of websites and blogs use to deliver their content directly to users, rather than having the users have to come to the actual site. There are several command line feed reading applications that are available. One of these is called Snownews.
nixcraft: When invoked without arguments, the date command displays the current date and time. Depending on the options specified, date will set the date and time or print it in a user defined way.
xubuntublog: Ubuntu 7.04 “Feisty Fawn” contained some new packages, it also introduced a bug due to which your data would no longer be saved. When it was released, this bug still wasn’t fixed. It is expected to be fixed in the next release, 7.10 “Gutsy Gibbon”, to be released in October of this year. Up until then, we’re out of luck. You’d think.
