This article sheds light on the truth.

  • Story Type: News Story; Groups: Community
Europe's answer to the Electronic Frontier Foundation, BEUC added another line yesterday to those previously drawn in the sand, declaring that consumers have the "right to benefit from technological innovations without abusive restrictions," and redundantly, the "right not to be criminalised."

Besieged Owners of Various Assets heard this as "the right to steal anything, anytime without being hassled."

Thus, the circle is complete. Network managers are surrounded.

The Ultimate Pro-Customer Computing Platform

  • Enterprise Networking Planet; By Carla Schroder (Posted by dave on Nov 12, 2005 5:29 AM EDT)
  • Story Type: Editorial; Groups: Community
When you build your infrastructure around the Linux operating system, you get the ultimate in flexibility. Linux servers don't care if you want them to serve Linux, Unix, Windows or Mac clients. Linux desktops don't care if they have to rely on an Active Directory domain controller for authentication and access to resources, or if the get to play in an all-Linux environment, or have to tug a forelock to a mighty Unix server.

Taking Linux On The Road With Ubuntu

The Ubuntu H2 Micro USB Drive is a pretty interesting product idea. Bundling a tiny storage device with a fully-featured open source operating system enables the user to take a system installation, all its settings and applications, and a limited amount of data with him.

[Ed.- OK, I know I keep ranting about Ubuntu everywhere- but this is very interesting and kewl.]

Firefox Hacks (Hacks)

Good bok for developers and admins alike Firefox Hacks is a great collection of information about the Mozilla Firefox browser. While almost anyone who has used Firefox would learn a great deal from reading this book, developers, admins, and advanced power users would benefit most from reading this. The book starts out nicely by going under the hood to look at internal settings, then turns to presentation aids and then to developer tools. I wish I'd had the book several months ago when I was doing more development! From code development the book moves into altering the browser look and feel, and finally into extension development. Although I may never do so, it's nice getting a guided look into areas I don't see on a day to day basis.

On the other hand, imagine you have this going for you: the best the world's only super power can give you in personnel, intelligence, hardware and software with cost overruns no problem.

Linux-Vserver on Debian Sarge

Linux-VServer allows you to create virtual private servers and security contexts which operate like a normal Linux server, but allow many independent servers to be run simultaneously in one box at full speed. All services, such as ssh, mail, Web, and databases, can be started on such a VPS, without modification, just like on any real server. Each virtual server has its own user account database and root password and doesn't interfere with other virtual servers

Senior citizen bloggers defy stereotypes

Web logs, more often the domain of alienated adolescents and middle-aged pundits, are gaining a foothold as a new leisure-time option for senior citizens.

Installing a Linux-2.6.14+initrd on Sarge (nodevfs anymore)

  • Debian Administration; By Jean-Chrstian de Rivaz (Posted by tuxchick on Nov 11, 2005 11:58 PM EDT)
  • Story Type: Tutorial; Groups: Debian
Until recently I used the default 2.6.8 kernel included into Sarge. When I tryed to install a vanilla 2.6.14 kernel I faced the "no devfs" problem. It's not that I forgot to turn on "devfs": "devfs" in not part of the Linux kernel anymore. The "udev" subsystem replace "devfs" and it's easy to install it into Sarge.

NewsForge presents free OpenOffice.org training videos

Massachusetts is trying to convert all computerized state documents to the open document format (odt). We think this is a fine idea. One concern that's been expressed about this move (at least by Microsoft) is that training employees to use OpenOffice.org 2.0 or other software that uses non-proprietary file formats (in place of Microsoft Office) will be time-consuming and costly. But what if basic OpenOffice.org training materials were available online for free? As a public service for Commonwealth of  Massachusetts employees (and everyone else), NewsForge is presenting -- absolutely free of charge -- 11 OpenOffice.org training videos as part of this article. They're excerpts from the video CD that comes with NewsForge Editor-in-Chief Robin 'Roblimo' Miller's upcoming book, Point& Click OpenOffice.org!, which will be available in December from all major booksellers. But we wanted you to have access to these videos now instead of waiting until the book is available, so here they are.

Automate Linux with cfengine

  • Enterprise Networking Planet; By Carla Schroder (Posted by tuxchick on Nov 11, 2005 11:11 PM EDT)
  • Story Type: Tutorial
As your Linux/Unix network grows, you're probably going to get tired of running around to individual machines to do updates and fixes, unless it's part of your fitness program. My ideal sysadmin scenario is rather like Dr. Evil's submarine lair: lounge about with a cat on my lap, occasionally pushing a button. Only I have no grand ambitions to conquer the world; I just don't like doing my modest chores the hard way. Cfengine (Configuration engine) is just the tool for streamlining hardworking system and network administrator's lives...Cfengine has two primary uses: Pushing out changes to all hosts on a network, regardless of operating system or hardware configuration. Automatically keeping all systems in a correct, stable state.
