I've been trying various browsers over the past 6 weeks or so. Firefox doesn't look as good as the rest of my Gnome desktop, and trying to make it fit in was becoming difficult. It also had begun to feel a bit slow.
The OpenOffice.org project team said today that three security vulnerabilities, which had been reported in the last week, have been fully addressed in OpenOffice.org 2.2. The latest release candidate (RC4) of v2.2 -- including all the security fixes -- is now available for download.
The problems, now said to be resolved in v2.2 RC4, included:
WordPerfect import vulnerability
The non-profit group that owns rights to much of the Linux operating system says it will seek to undermine a controversial deal between Microsoft Corp. and Novell Inc. through a new software licensing agreement to be unveiled on Wednesday.
One advantage to using Qemu hardware emulation as opposed to a native USB boot is that it allows you to plug your USB stick or portable hard drive into any available PC and run a complete operating system without restarting.
I mentioned in my last post, that I purchased a Toshiba A135-S4467 laptop yesterday. The following is a very long post, including the laptop’s specs, installing Foresight, and some of the challenges I have figured out or am trying to overcome in getting Foresight Linux.
The humble personal computer has a well-deserved reputation as a giant-killer. After all, it was the virus-like spread of PCs which spelled the beginning of the end for the mainframe dinosaurs.
In this article, I'll set out howto install kdenlive, and then talk about its features, and basic usage. As you can probably tell, I'm really enthusiastic about this application. The reason being, that it looks like an application that could be termed the "iMovie" of linux. It has a nice and intuitive interface.
In less than three weeks it will have been a year since ATI Technologies had added it's Radeon X1000 family (R500) support to their Linux binary drivers. When that support was finally added it came about six months after the hardware was actually introduced to the public accompanied by the Windows Catalyst drivers.
At the ceremony for the 2006 Free Software Awards, Richard Stallman presented Theodore Ts'o with the Award for the Advancement of Free Software.
Theodore Ts'o was recognized for his many and varied contributions to free software, including his work on the kernel Linux. His role as project leader in the development of Kerberos.
Previous winners of the free software award:
Or: "The Futility of trying to fit square Windows users into round Linux holes."
Even the best of us blow it sometime, and some of us idiot bloggers blow it every day.
My last post will have a place next anniversary as this year's "What Was I Thinking" award.
Let's start over, shall we? Here's my logic for this idea:
Seriously. I now believe linux is a collective conciousness which has taken steps to punish me on a constant basis. You can take your weak monotheistic religions which offer some abstract punishment in an afterlife and shove them, the LinuxGod is punishing me on a daily basis. For hours at a time.
Commit Digest 51 has been released. Usually it contains a huge amount of interesting information - well, at least for the KDE interested people.
As usual the introduction of the Issue 51 summarizes some important information. For example the Oxygen project finished the transition of their icon names to the freedesktop.org icon naming spec. This means that
Frugalware could be an interesting alternative for Slackware fans, as it contains much more packages than Slackware, and is much more actively developed. But for users wanting a nice distribution without too much effort: forget about Frugalware.
The next stable update to the Linux kernel, Version 2.6.21, is slated to include a new feature submitted by VMware called VMI.
Virtualized operating system instances can enjoy performance and management benefits if their kernels are modified to communicate with the hypervisor under which they run. This arrangement is called paravirtualization.
Linux is by far *not* the first open source "project" I have been around. As a newly minted system programmer 27 or so years ago (geez, I'm old... When did that happen?) I was first involved with a new operating system from IBM called VM/SP. VM/SP was the post anti-trust version of VM IBM created out of VM/370.
There’s quite a bit of speculation going on at what distribution of Linux Dell will choose to put onto its desktops or if they’ll even attempt to put Linux on the desktop.
It’s really simple to login with your username/password combination on the remote machine, but sometimes it can be a better idea to use key-based authentication.
Key-based authentication is where instead of authenticating that you are you with the remote machine credentials, you use a cryptographic key pair.
By default when you click the Open All in Tabs option in a bookmarks folder or a live bookmark, the bookmarks are opened in different tabs replacing the current tab set you have at that time.
ps is a very useful tool to list all current running processes with various info such as CPU usage, memory usage, process status, process id etc.
watch is another good tool to continuously execute some programs in infinite loop. watch allows you to make use of commands such as ps, netstat, lsof into monitoring purpose.
Ubuntu Development team released ubuntu feisty fawn beta on 23rd March 2007 some of them started upgrading their edgy to feisty .If your feisty broken here is the procedure to fix that.
