Linux System Administration - Book Review Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
Tuesday, June 12 2007 @ 01:56 PM EDT
Contributed by: sde

Bob Uhl writes ""I've just finished reading a review copy of O'Reilly's latest GNU/Linux title, Linux System Administration. It's a handy introduction for the beginner GNU/Linux sysadmin, and a useful addition to an experienced sysadmin's bookshelf. The book is essentially a survey of various Linux system-administration tasks: installing Debian; setting up LAMP; configuring a load-balancing, high-availability environment; working with virtualization. None of the chapters are in-depth examinations of their subjects; rather, they're enough to get you started and familiar with the concepts involved, and headed in the right direction."

Review: Fedora 7 Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
Wednesday, June 06 2007 @ 01:30 PM EDT
Contributed by: sde

Joe Brockmeier writes "Fedora 7 was released last week, a little bit behind schedule, with a spate of new features, updates, and live CD installable "spins" of Fedora in KDE and GNOME flavors. I found a lot of good in this release, but a bug in the FireWire stack that attacked my external backup drive made this release just a little shy of perfect."

The Linux programmer's toolbox Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
Friday, June 01 2007 @ 01:33 AM EDT
Contributed by: sde

Linux, like the other *nix platforms, has a reputation of being a good environment for developers. In fact, Linux and hacking – in the original sense of the word – seem to go hand in hand, so much so that some commentators still find it hard to conceive of it as anything but a server and/or development platform.

SlashGear Review: Linutop’s fanless Linux PC Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
Thursday, May 31 2007 @ 11:47 PM EDT
Contributed by: sde

Much to my shame, Linux is something of a mystery to me. Actually, I think they should teach at least the basics of it in school computing classes, alongside English and at least one foreign language (though don’t ask me about my French abilities either), but this is neither time nor place for my election campaigning. And so I look on with maudlin self-disgust at promises of Dell laptops with Linux pre-installed, or clever thumb-drives and Live CDs that offer a chance to fiddle with the OS without ruining your everyday copy of Windows; I inevitably fold when faced with some sort of command prompt. Perhaps, then, you’ll wonder why I was so keen to try the Linutop, a surprisingly compact and silent diskless computer that runs a specially tweaked version of xubuntu.

Game Emulation In Linux Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
Monday, May 28 2007 @ 02:18 PM EDT
Contributed by: sde

Computer gaming is nothing new. Even in the earliest days of computing, we began to see an immediate desire to run games. In 1951, the NIMROD computer was built with the sole purpose of playing the game of NIM. Some twenty years later, we began to see growth of games on both PCs and consoles. The first known console was the Magnavox Odyssey, which used circuit cards for each game. Cartridges would soon catch on.

Ubuntu Linux 7.04 Feisty Fawn Review Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
Thursday, May 03 2007 @ 03:26 PM EDT
Contributed by: sde

It's a tough thing when you're doing a review of a distribution that you want to like but end up having to pan it. The latest version of Ubuntu Linux is called Feisty Fawn, and about all I can see it being good for is venison. We found it to be a real stinker in some ways, despite past versions of Ubuntu having been fairly good.

Beryl: The Cool Linux UI Reviewed Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
Monday, April 23 2007 @ 01:28 PM EDT
Contributed by: sde

Matt Hartley writes "To this day, I still have to smile when new Linux users decide to take the plunge because they want the cool looking visual effects that Beryl offers. To some limited degree, I can understand the motivation. The stunning videos on YouTube are certainly compelling to those who have never tried to use the setup themselves. Unfortunately, there are still some valid reasons for sticking with the alternatives for the time being. Let's explore some of the issues that I have found with using Beryl."

KDE vs. GNOME: Is One Better? Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
Sunday, April 15 2007 @ 04:41 PM EDT
Contributed by: sde

One of the hardest things for users of other platform to understand is that GNU/Linux does not have a single graphical display. Instead, there are dozens, ranging from basic window managers that control the look and positioning of windows in the X Window system, to complete desktop environments with a wide variety of utilities and specially designed applications.

A first look at Dolphin, the KDE 4 file manager Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
Tuesday, April 10 2007 @ 04:04 AM EDT
Contributed by: sde

The Linux-based Dolphin file manager is now scheduled for official inclusion in KDE 4, the next major release of the KDE desktop environment. Dolphin includes several unique usability enhancements that aren't available in Konqueror, KDE's current file manager. In particular, Dolphin features a navigation bar inspired by Thunar and Windows Vista, a bookmark system built around file management rather than web browsing, a more flexible sidebar system, and a less-invasive notification system that doesn't interrupt user work flow.

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5: Some Assembly Required Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
Tuesday, April 10 2007 @ 03:40 AM EDT
Contributed by: sde

Review: While eWEEK Labs believes Red Hat is off to a good start with its Xen implementation, companies in search of an out-of-the-box server virtualization solution should not expect it here.
