This tutorial describes how to set up an audio streaming server with Icecast2. In order that Icecast2 can stream audio to listeners we install Ices2. Ices2 is a program that sends audio data to an Icecast2 server to broadcast to clients. Ices2 can either read audio data from disk (Ogg Vorbis files), or sample live audio from a sound card and encode it on the fly. In this article we will let Ices2 read .ogg files from the local hard disk.
Due to a beastie in the submissions system, the aKademy 2007 Programme Committee have extended the deadline for talk proposals until February 23rd. See the Call for Participation for some guidelines and how to submit. Confirmation to those who have already submitted has been sent out, let us know if you have no heard from us. If you contribute to KDE in any way it is likely others will want to know about it, so send us your abstract before next Friday.
..with the advent and maturing of free software, the excitement and innovation is coming back, along with the freedom and encouragement and enjoyment of expression of creativity. and pyjamas and the original Google Web Kit are classic examples that have the potential to accelerate that process even more: making the web browser into just a desktop window, or even bypassing the web server and web browser altogether. all without having to know anything about HTML or the web, at all.
In this third article, find out how to get the client and server talking to each other. You'll use the Remote Procedure Call (RPC) framework within GWT to make getting data off the server almost as simple as making a Java method call.
Rik van Riel [interview] posted some thoughts on the page replacement requirements of the Linux VM, noting that the same kinds of bugs have been getting fixed and reintroduced over the past few years,"this has convinced me that it is time to take a look at the actual requirements of a page replacement mechanism, so we can try to fix things without reintroducing other bugs. Understanding what is going on should also help us deal better with really large memory systems." He added his thoughts from this email to thelinux-mm wiki, which he plans to update as new requirements surface.
Nancy Anthracite on the Hardhats groups writes:'...I have the translated CPRS from David Fonseca Sanchez . He said that since he does not have a medical background, he would appreciate feedback on the translation as well as how well it works. You can download it from two places at the moment [here andhere]. Eventually it will be only on the second server.'
MEPIS Linux founder Warren Woodford began, a year ago, to migrate MEPIS from Debian to Ubuntu packages, and in July achieved the first Ubuntu-based simplyMEPIS release. In light of the recently announced Linspire/Ubuntu collaboration, DesktopLinux.com asked Woodford to clarify the MEPIS/Ubuntu relationship.
GNU/Linux is known for its diversity and freedom of choice. This diversity is the power and weakness of free software. Exactly the same problem concerns installing software in GNU/Linux. In this article I am going to sum up some of the recent efforts to fix this problem and examine the possible futute of packaging software in GNU/Linux.
Faraday Technology Corporation (FTC) is shipping a development platform aimed at simplifying the development of ARM-based structured ASICs (application-specific integrated circuits) for embedded devices. The "FPGACompanion" platform comprises an ARM-based SoC (system-on-chip) and evaluation board, along with a Linux 2.6.14 BSP (board support package) and tools.

You will learn about XML::SAX::Base and how you can use it to build sources, handlers, and sinks of SAX events.
“BridgeWays” – a new suite of next generation, cross-platform and cross-service, workflow-driven and rules-based, management products and integration frameworks. The suite enables data center managers and system administrators, with typical Windows administration skills, to configure and support an optimal mix of Linux, Unix, and Windows platforms, systems, and services.
Marc Fleury used his words as much as his coding skills to convince the business world that the JBoss open source project could produce enterprise-caliber middleware. So it was uncharacteristic for Fleury to leave his job at Red Hat, which bought JBoss nine months ago, with only a cryptic statement: "I've done what I can to help Red Hat succeed."
A few years ago, Ed Hurst began what would become an extremely popular series of articles on getting started with desktop BSD. Because of the continuing popularity of this series, Ed had revised the articles to apply to the latest and greatest versions of FreeBSD. In thi...
Sun Microsystems wants Internet developers to deploy their Web infrastructures on Sun's Solaris 10 operating system. Its three latest releases aim to help. They include Solaris Express, Developer Edition, an OpenSolaris-based distribution for Solaris, Java, and Web 2.0 developers; Solaris + AMP (Apache/MySQL/Perl or PHP), an open source-based Web infrastructure stack designed for the Solaris 10 operating system; and an expansion of Sun's Startup Essentials program.
The nullfs filesystem is a passthrough filesystem. When nullfs is mounted it - literally copies the filesystem transaction. If a file is deleted, nullfs simply transmits the information down to the lower filesystem. Conversely, if a file is created, it does the same and tacks on all of the data needed for the filesystem underneath. Why is that a good thing? Where did nullfs come from and why?. What else, if anything, is it good for? The series focuses on where nullfs comes from, how it can be leveraged, a code walk and a skeloten implementation (nearly a blind copy).
Ingo Molnar [interview] posted a second version of his syslets subystem patch set, which offers asynchrous system call support [story]. He noted that the effort is a work in progress, and that there are still outstanding issues to be fixed,"the biggest conceptual change in v2 is the ability of cachemiss threads to be turned into user threads. This fixes signal handling, makes them ptrace-eable, etc," going on to list numerous fixes since the first release. He noted that prior to releasing a third version of the patch set he will add support for multiple completion rings, add logic to share the'spare thread' between the rings to further reduce startup costs, and remove reliance on mlock().Linus Torvalds commented,"I'm still not a huge fan of the user space interface, but at least the core code looks quite clean. No objections on that front."
Made available on all leading platforms, added tools, great awareness leads to banner year
Some bad blood between Linus Torvalds and GNOME developers is flaring up again. Previously, Torvalds has said that Linux users should switch to KDE instead of GNOME because of the GNOME team's "users are idiots" mentality. Now he has "put his money where his mouth is" by submitting patches to the GNOME Print Dialog in order to have it behave as he likes.
