Almost a month ago I attempted an install of Gentoo using Kororaa and it didn't quite go as hoped. About a week ago Chris, of Kororaa, writes to mention that he released Beta2-r1. He stated that he was finally able to find a machine that would reproduce my error and thought he had fixed it. He asked if I could test it, and I apologize for the delay, but today I finally did. So, what happened this time?
If you have a passing interesting Linux or if you're a seasoned veteran, you like Running Linux Fifth Edition . It's not only a good book to read, it's an excellent reference.
OpenSuSE's SUSE Linux 10.1 alpha4 was released right on schedule December 15 and as usual those developers have been hard at work. No big visual changes, but plenty under-the-hood serve as testament to their dedication. Again some key features this release include superior performance, unparalleled stability, and unrivaled software availability. Weelll, almost...
This is not an easy book. It is not a volume for beginners. But if you are willing to work your way through the code, this will make you a far better C++ programmer. It will also give you a better understanding of the ways you can manage objects.
DSL 2.1rc2 was released on the 13th and with it comes a few more enhancements, but still no wireless for srlinuxx.
Looking for an Adobe Photoshop replacement on Linux? If the GIMP doesn't cut it, maybe Pixel will.
Reading Ken's announcement on Foresight Linux 0.9.2 (released on Dec. 10) I thought this is the best chance to get used with a new GNOME-based distro, especially since Foresight 0.9.1 gave me a lot of trouble with xDSL connections, and I was just trying to fix'em.
Charles Darwin would "get" the beauty Debian if he were alive today. Martin Krafft certainly "gets" the beauty of Debian, and he wants you to get it too, so he has written a very detailed exposition of the Debian code and community called The Debian System: Concepts and Techniques, co-published by Open Source Press and No Starch Press.
So we have to admit that we didn't have high hopes for Linux Quick Fix Notebook; the title is uninspiring and makes it sound like another book promising expertise without effort. But this is far from the truth and, contrary to what we expected, this is a book that can easily be recommended.
The Holy Grail of Linux is to be so easy to install and use that the technologically illiterate can do it. The penguin community is working feverishly to this goal, which would give Microsoft's Windows a run for its money.
It's almost there.
Speaking of Ark Linux 2005.2, DistroWatch has included a "first look" in their Distrowatch Weekly. Overall they liked it, but admit it's still not quite ready to be called "beginner-friendly"
I was a bit intrigued when I saw the announcement on DistroWatch for Stx, but I was quite a bit behind in my projects for the weekend so I didn't really pay much attention to it until I saw the announcement on PcLinuxOnline. There STIBS posted his announcement as a request for "Distro testers wanted ..." This got my attention. When I read the information posted, all other reviews like Frugalware and Foresight would have to wait. This project sounded very interesting.
Berry Linux is a livecd primarily for the Japanese market. They released version .65 yesterday and I thought I'd take a look. This release brings linux 188.8.131.52, gcc 4.0.2, and KDE 3.5.
The release of KateOS 2.3 was announced a coupla days ago, and Tuxmachines takes a look at what's new since our last excursion. KateOS was amazing at that point and the developer took time out of his busy schedule to give us some inside information. If history repeats itself, no one will be disappointed.
As today's driver release is mainly a maintenance update, we simply compared its Linux performance against that of the previous ATI proprietary drivers from November 11, 2005 that was version 8.19.10.
FreeBSD is an enterprise-grade operating system that leaves little to be desired. Most people have tried Linux by now, but a surprisingly large number of people have not yet taken FreeBSD for a spin.
Firefox 1.5 has been out since November 29, 2005, and has garnered glowing reviews around the Internet. This is not one of them.
Self-Service Linux - Mastering the Art of Problem Determination is a part of the "Bruce Perens open source series". The very same Bruce Perens who gave the computing world the Open Source definition.
The developers of Damn Small Linux have announced the availability of the first release candidate of version 2.1. My gentoo install is quite dated on my aging laptop, and due to speed and other certain hardware considerations, it isn't likely to be updated again. I decided to see if dsl could run on this ancient Dell laptop.
