How to correct perspective and lens distortion in digital photos

  • NewsForge; By Nathan Willis (Posted by dcparris on Jun 28, 2006 12:54 AM EDT)
  • Story Type: Tutorial; Groups: Linux
Warped horizon lines and bent skyscrapers are just as disheartening to the travel photographer as the demonic "red eye" effect. Red eye correction is commonplace in software today, but you don't have to live with distortion either. Free software can correct lens- and perspective-distortion, turning the fishbowl look into the landscape as you remember it. And even if you don't have vacation pictures that need a new perspective, the same technique can come in handy elsewhere -- such as for extracting undistorted textures from a photo to use in a game or 3-D model. Here's how to do it.

System Administration: One Step toward the BIND

  • Linux Journal; By Tom Adelstein (Posted by dcparris on Jun 28, 2006 12:22 AM EDT)
  • Story Type: Tutorial; Groups: Linux

DNS is mostly a directory service. Millions of people and computers use one or more directories every day. Currently, so many directories exist in our world that they have become almost transparent to casual observers. You could say it's a directory kind of world out there and DNS remains a big part of it for people who use the Internet regardless of the device.

A GPL requirement could have a chilling effect on derivative distros

Warren Woodford, the founder of the MEPIS distribution, would prefer to be concentrating on polishing his latest release. Instead, he is distracted by an official notice from the Free Software Foundation that, because MEPIS has not previously supplied source code for the packages already available from the distribution it is based on -- once Debian, and now Ubuntu -- it is in violation of the GNU General Public License (GPL). Woodford intends to comply, but he worries about how this requirement might affect all distributions derived from other distributions -- especially those run by one or two people in their spare time.

[Give me a break! If Red Hat, Mandriva and Debian all have to offer source code, then why would the downstream developers think they are any different? Where do the "upstream distros get their code from? Hmm? I don't see the concern. - dcparris]

Phone Makers to Create Unified Mobile Linux Platform

  • IT Jungle; By Timothy Prickett Morgan (Posted by dcparris on Jun 27, 2006 6:28 PM EDT)
  • Story Type: News Story; Groups: Linux
While Linux has been increasing in popularity as a platform for personal digital assistants and cell phones, it is very hard to get all of the suppliers of various devices to agree on a standard Linux implementation. Microsoft, which has been peddling cut-down versions of Windows for the same devices, has the virtue of owning and controlling the Windows standard. No so for Linux. But that might be changing.
