Hack and crack proof SSH on Linux Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
Thursday, August 02 2007 @ 01:58 PM EDT
Contributed by: sde

Even so, it’s simply a matter of time before your router’s lights flash heavily and /var/log/auth.log (/var/log/secure on RedHat) fills with chilling messages like these:

OpenOffice.org Calc: Pivot tables by another name Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
Wednesday, August 01 2007 @ 10:16 PM EDT
Contributed by: sde

DataPilots are OpenOffice.org Calc's equivalent of what MS Excel and other spreadsheets call pivot tables. Under any name, they are a tool for extracting and summarizing the information contained in spreadsheet cells in a more convenient form. Using a DataPilot, you can immediately see relationships between different pieces of data that would be difficult -- if not impossible -- to find using formulas, and tedious to extract manually. In effect, a DataPilot gives you something of the power of using a database without actually switching out of a spreadsheet. Small wonder, then, that over half of spreadsheet users are said to use datapilots or pivot tables.

Rescuing Linux when it won't start Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
Wednesday, August 01 2007 @ 05:16 PM EDT
Contributed by: sde

No matter how much you adore your Linux machine, there will come a time when you will have to rescue your installation.

Yes, even a Linux machine could suffer from a disaster: whether it's because of a corrupt video configuration, a kernel update gone wrong, or a misconfigured init script, it's inevitable. I've seen it happen on a number of occasions — even on my own machines, mostly from corrupt X configurations — and it's frustrating.

Contributed by: sde

This tutorial shows how you can set up a Fedora 7 desktop that is a full-fledged replacement for a Windows desktop, i.e. that has all the software that people need to do the things they do on their Windows desktops. The advantages are clear: you get a secure system without DRM restrictions that works even on old hardware, and the best thing is: all software comes free of charge.

GPUs & Beryl: What is Needed? Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
Tuesday, May 29 2007 @ 01:40 PM EDT
Contributed by: sde

We thought it was already clear what graphics processors and drivers work and don't work with Linux desktop eye candy such as Beryl and Compiz, but it seems based upon the number of e-mails we have been receiving along with messages in community bulletin boards that the line isn't so clear after all. For those that have never tried out Beryl, it is a compositing window manager branched from Compiz (though Beryl will merge back with Compiz soon) that provides a variety of window decorations and other desktop "eye candy" for X.Org users.
