PCLinuxOS Magazine Lite...for those bandwidth challenged users...
Today the final release of World of Padman, the famous cartoon style quake3 mod has been released. This release in first place bundles all the single files and add-ons, which became available in the past.
While fully built retail machines are not our main focus at Phoronix, after learning of a new contender in the Linux HTPC arena we decided to further investigate LIX Systems. Today we are looking at a moderately priced Home Theater PC that has everything pre-configured to hopefully begin a smooth Linux media experience.
This is the second part of the article about top ten Windows annoyances which made me switch from XP to GNU/Linux and stick with it. I hope my thoughts will be informative and somewhat useful to all of you wondering whether to give up MS Windows.
Jereme Hancock says the reason he created a Christian version of Linux, called Ubuntu Christian Edition, was simply to "bring Linux to Christian believers." Ubuntu CE, which comes with net filtering and Bible study software, is designed to fit in with Hancock's mission to provide a "family-friendly place on the Web," Hancock says.
As well as palm muting, KGuitar has a number of great features. It's able to import Guitar Pro files, up to version 4; it has a visual fretboard, so you can see how a chord would look on the guitar neck; a chord analyser (like Guitar Pro's) that gives you a choice of fingerings based on a chord name, or provides you with chord names for a chord you input; and, a feature that seems to be unique to KGuitar: the ability to tap the rhythm of a bar using the mouse or keyboard.
If you didn't make it to the Ohio Linuxfest this past weekend you missed a great time. With speakers like John "Maddog" Hall, Jeff Waugh and Chris DiBona not to mention vendors like Novell, IBM, RedHat, and Sun, there was a something for everyone at Ohio Linuxfest this year.
Not being able to set my mind to doing anything useful, I played a little with rgba windows. For a future version of Xfce that can depend on cairo-based versions of Gtk, it should be possible to only make the panel background transparent, while keeping text and icons fully opaque.
Like I said last Friday, UHU-Linux 2.0 was released as the first version (the fourth in its history, after 1.0, 1.1 and 1.2) to support the English language as an extra to Hungarian. Some people liked even Test 2 — let's see now what we got in the final release.
With its Corporate Server 4, Mandriva is challenging the Linux data center operating systems from Red Hat and Novell by offering broader support for virtualization technologies. It's a solid-sounding plan, but eWEEK Labs' tests of CS 4 show that it's longer on ambition than execution.

I'm breaking with tradition at Tectonic. We usually review Ubuntu, the Gnome desktop version from the Canonical/Ubuntu team that brought us winning operating systems like Warty Warthog, Hoary Hedgehog, and Breezy Badger. And, according to my last review, a loser like Dapper Drake. This time I'm reviewing Kubuntu Edgy Eft, the KDE version of the latest Ubuntu release.
Open source software developers, joined by Intel and IBM technical staff, exchange knowledge and plan ODF supporting projects; OpenDocument Developer Kit proposed.
The largest Internet media company in the world, Yahoo, announced recently that it will open its e-mail program for outside developers, a move that marks the beginning of a new era for the Sunnyvale-based giant.
loadavg is a simple and lightweight method of monitoring load, memory usage and transfer throughput on a Linux server. Every method of monitoring has an impact on the system being monitored — loadavg is designed to keep that impact as low as possible.
A while back, I stumbled upon something called the Municator PC from YellowSheepRiver Municator, Inc. At first, I thought this had to be yet another hoax, but as I looked deeper into it, I found out that China has done a fairly nice job of taking the distribution, known as RPLinux, and integrating it with Chinese made hardware.
Here's a handy Perl script to automate a critical part of your daily routine. dailystrips can help fetch your favorite Internet comic strips in time for you to enjoy them with your first cup of coffee, without your having to surf for them.
Debian Etch is a very good Linux distribution. It has all the latest versions of software - even more recent than those found in Ubuntu Dapper. Recently when I downloaded and installed the latest version of Debian Etch Beta 3, every thing went quite smoothly. But... I ran into a problem.
A few weeks before releasing iTunes 7, Apple rolled out a firmware update for iPod devices. The update rendered obsolete a key library for using Banshee with your iPod. ) So here is where we will step in and try to make ourselves useful by explaining how to update a SLED10 system (and probably an openSUSE system, as well) to the latest version of Banshee.
I wrote up a long update on where we are in the software and hardware for the One Laptop per Child project. We’ve gotten a lot done, but I don’t think that’s been communicated to the outside world very well. So, for the first time, here’s an update of where we are. Hopefully I’ll be able to do this on a regular basis.
