If you have a sourceforge account, and are on your way to becoming the best thing to happen to the web since Yahoo or Google, then I beg of you to put a call out for people who understand database design fundamentals.
The GP2X open-source Linux-based gaming handheld with a dash of SDL and some Star Truckers (which is one of the finest open-source games I've played in months) has a new firmware version 2.0.0 out.
Scott McNealy is out. Jonathan Schwartz is in. And the future never looked brighter for Sun Microsystems—or so we're told. But if Sun's new CEO is going to convince me that his company can remain a dominant player in enterprise software, first he's going to have to get his story straight, particularly when it comes to Linux and open source.

I again point you to a new version of firefox before it becomes official. The version installed without problem over 184.108.40.206, all extensions that I have installed are still working.
Linux Game Publishing just announced that their port of Egosoft's space simulation X2: The Threat has gone gold!
Also: Quetoo 0.3.4 has been released
One problem with symbolic links is that really they are just files. A special kind of file, yes, but a symlink only points at a directory - it doesn't act like one. So, for example, if you put a symlink to /xyz in a users home directory, and the user has write permission to his home (as he ordinarily would), he can remove your symlink. Nothing you can do with ordinary permissions can prevent that.
This article briefly examines the current state of affairs for multiple server deployment, with an emphasis on modern advancements in virtual servers and workstations. The most common configurations use three primary techniques: Partition, Emulate and Virtualize.
A reader asked a hint for setting a a working directory for applications launched with WINE, because... "Some Windows programs require the setting of a working directory when the program is started."
The compelling reason for Linux's successful incubation and adoption is quite simple: it works for us. Linux meets two key requirements of technically mature enterprise consumers - reliability and portability.
I've used the University of Maryland's open source Amanda tape backup system for some time now. There is some documentation on restoring entire disks or partitions with Amanda, but restoring individual files from tape or image file wasn't that intuitive, so I thought I'd share my experiences.
Few days ago I have installed nginx on one of our adult projects as reverse proxy server and for static files management. Yesterday this server got 200Mbit/sec traffic and because all admins like to create miscellaneous graphs, I have decided to draw nginx stats on graphs to see server load not only in megabits and load averages. As the result, I have created perl script, which uses RRDs perl module to create and manage rrd-database and very beautiful graphs.
OpenSuSE released rc3 of their upcoming SuSE Linux 10.1 yesterday right on target as planned and reported on the Roadmap. I thought rc2 was just about gold worthy myself and was anxious to see the changelog for rc3. Well, they disappointed me on a few issues but all in all, they are probably getting closer to that final release.
Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Edubuntu, and now Xubuntu. Mark Shuttleworth's work continues on with this new Xfce Ubuntu derivative. Xubuntu shares the same base system and installation system as the common Ubuntu distribution, but ships with the light-weight Xfce desktop environment. Today at Phoronix we have a screenshot tour of Xubuntu Dapper Drake Beta 2
When developing any project, you must determine a set of goals that should be accomplished to reach a release point. When dealing with an open source project that is constantly in development, this is even more important because you lack a well-defined set of requirements that you must achieve. Lacking these requirements makes it all too easy to keep developing and never reach a release point.
In the growing tradition of -women groups, Ubuntu-Women now joins the ranks with the annoucement of the launch of their official website this week. The Ubuntu-Women mailing list was started in February 2006, and a related Ubuntu-Women Forum and IRC channel (#ubuntu-women on irc.freenode.net) have been around since mid 2005.
Linux has no dearth in utilities which aid a user in getting a snapshot of the network traffic which course through ones machine especially when one is connected to the internet. One such software which aids the user in keeping an eye on the exchange of IP packets to and from ones machine is IPTraf. This is a curses based menu driven utility which intercepts packets on the network and gives out information about it.
THE FREE browser Firefox seems to be able to teach Microsoft a lesson or two when it comes to fixing bugs. But, it has slightly buggered up the release dates and numbers that were planned for Firebadger.
After Nintendo announced the official name of its next-generation game console, to be known henceforth as Wii, fan reaction was less "whee" and more "why?" Until the company's announcement Thursday, the console has been known by its code name, "Revolution".
The week-long anti-competition hearing involving Microsoft and the European Commission has finished - with neither side willing to predict the outcome.

This tutorial shows how you can mirror your web site from your main web server to a backup server that can take over if the main server fails. We use the tool rsync for this, and we make it run through a cron job that checks every x minutes if there is something to update on the mirror. Thus your backup server should usually be up to date if it has to take over.
