Previously on Playing with partitions I discussed how I fdisked an SD Ram card now as promised here is how I repartitioned a running server with an active oracle database.
As the custodian of IT at UWC, I will be pursuing a full
investigation into a total exit strategy for all Novell products from
the University of the Western Cape.
APTonCD is a tool with a graphical interface which allows you to create one or more CDs or DVDs (you choose the type of media) with all of the packages you’ve downloaded via APT-GET or APTITUDE, creating a removable repository that you can use on other computers.
Moglen is concerned that worried customers - and ergo falling revenues - could force Red Hat into a deal with Microsoft similar to Novell's and Ballmer keeps baiting the hook by saying he's "willing to do the same deal with Red Hat and other Linux distributors," giving Red Hat's base the ammo it needs.
It seems like a great idea: making a computer that's somewhere between the size of a cell phone and a laptop, for people to carry around and surf the Web. The Pepper Pad 3 is a new entry in this difficult field. It's a big slab-style tablet, almost 6 by 12 inches wide and an inch thick, with a small keyboard and a 7-inch touch screen.
Tensions are already high over Novell's patent agreement with Microsoft, but Ubuntu founder Mark Shuttleworth's invitation to openSUSE developers "concerned about the long term consequences" has kicked the tension up a notch.
The combination of Eclipse, DB2 Express-C, and WebSphere Application Server Community Edition -- all free to download, use, and deploy -- is an excellent from-prototype-to-production suite for all of your Java and Java enterprise development needs. This tutorial shows you how to move an application from a conventional design to one based on Ajax technology -- all within the friendly and familiar environment of the Kick-start your Java apps suite.
I've seen a number of folks assert that what Novell has done in the patent peace agreement with Microsoft is no different than what Sun did in its agreement with Microsoft in 2004, so I thought it would be worthwhile to post the Sun agreement again, so you can see the difference. As you will see, as unfortunate as the Sun deal was, it had limited effect on GNU/Linux developers or end users.
After a long time I decided to change the linux distribution. I did so after the problems with the apt-get and update of the debian linux distribution (sid). I downloaded the iso image of ububntu linux version 6.10, burned the image and installed.
Greylisting is yet another way for preventing your mailbox getting full of spam. A famous spam fighter software is spamassassin which filter emails. Greylisting won't replace such softwares but it will behave as a powerful proactive barrier which will reduce the amount of spam getting through your mail server.
Projects are appearing that attempt to bring Visual Basic clones to Linux. Marc Boorshtein, a former VB programmer, thinks this is a mistake, and that we should be innovating with what we already have instead of spending time working at emulating what he considers a technological dead end.
This aims to be the most comprehensive kernel comparison of the latest most popular Unix style kernel verses the latest most popular current kernel. A kind of kernel comparison FAQ.
Ubuntu's open week sounds like a really good idea. I'm just surprised that it is done to get users away from openSUSE as Mark Shuttleworth announced on the opensuse mailing lists.
After last month's release of Fedora Core 6 a new unstable release of Berry Linux is out. New to Berry Linux 0.76 is packages updated to those found in FC6 Zod, Linux 2.6.18, Unionfs 1.4 support, and X.Org 7.1. With desktop effects being all of the craze now, Berry 0.76 ships with Xgl/AIGLX and Beryl 0.1.2. At Phoronix we have taken Berry Linux 0.76 for a try and have some screenshots to show today.
Dpkg is the Debian package manager dpkg is a medium-level tool to install, build, remove and manage Debian packages. The primary and more user-friendly front-end for dpkg is dselect.dpkg itself is controlled entirely via command line parameters,which consist of exactly one action and zero or more options. The action-parameter tells dpkg what to do and options control the behavior of the action in some way.
Having time on my hands while waiting for Thanksgiving dinner (the turkey is slowly smoking on the barbecue as I write this), I pulled 'Network Security Hacks' from the stack and went to work.
Bangalore’s open source community crams into conference to learn, network, and share. Approximately 1,500 attendees turned up Friday for FOSS.in, a free event in Bangalore that the open source community in India has been planning for months.
We are hosting a series of introductory sessions for people who want to join the Ubuntu community - in any capacity, including developers and package maintainers. If you are an OpenSUSE developer who is concerned about the long term consequences of this pact, you may be interested in some of the events happening next week as part of the Ubuntu Open Week.
Raw Therapee is a free RAW photo converter application developed single-handedly by Gábor Horváth. It has been available on Windows for some time, but on October 11, Horváth released the first build for Linux. If you are familiar with other graphical RAW converters, such as UFRaw, you will feel quite at home using Raw Therapee.
