Red Hat sounds virtualization call

Red Hat has launched a regionwide campaign in hopes of raising awareness of Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 5's virtualization capabilities.

Hi-Tech Under The Tree - Hey...It's What We Do.

Komputers4Kids has had a good year. To this date, we have either built or been donated 110 computers for financially or socially under-privileged kids. We here at Lobby4Linux have installed each one of them and then taught them how to use their new Linux System. It's been a good year other ways as well.

The Two Ways Cloud Computing Can Help Linux

With the rise of cloud computing, users are becoming less and less dependent on their operating systems as their applications move to the web, but Jim Zemlin points out that the rise of cloud computing also helps Linux on the server side.

Should the Linux community boycott newegg.com?

I'm beginning to wonder myself. My uncle bought a $1200.00 laptop that didn't work right brand new and wanted to return it for a refund in under 30 days. In the US its illegal not to refund someone's money for a defective product or a product that is not as described and everyone has the right to return something that is new.

Audit your Cisco router's security with Nipper

While recently talking with a fellow network admin, I learned about Nipper. While there are many tools available to perform security audits of network devices, Nipper is unique. Let me show you why.

LXer Feature: 16-Dec-2007

In this weeks roundup Andy Updegrove continues his series on ODF vs. OOXML, Open Source Fonts, a new version of Picasa for Linux, our own Hans Kwint asks "Do Linux filesystems need defragmentation?", KDE takes a stand on OOXML and Carla Schroder gives her advice to those brave enough to run Debian Volatile.

Calculating Subnets with "ipcalc"

  • BeginLinux.com; By Donnie Tevault (Posted by mweber on Dec 16, 2007 2:09 PM EDT)
  • Story Type: Tutorial
Setting up a network can be fairly quick and easy if you're setting it up with straight Class A, Class B, or Class C network addresses. But, there may be occasions when you would only have a few hosts assigned to a given network segment. In that case, you wouldn't want to use a straight "classful " network addressing scheme, because you would waste too many IP addresses for that network. (You may need to use these IP addresses later if you decide to add other segments to your network.) This is where subnetting comes in handy.

ASUS Radeon HD 3850 & 3870 TOP

Last month AMD introduced the ATI Radeon HD 3800 series as "enthusiast gaming performance for the masses" through the Radeon HD 3850 and Radeon HD 3870, which are both sub-$250 graphics cards. While rudimentary, the Catalyst 7.11 Linux driver (also released last month), supports these two RV670 GPUs with better support coming through the Catalyst 7.12 Linux driver this month. To see how well these two PCI Express 2.0 graphics cards are able to perform under Linux, ASUS had sent out their EAH3850 TOP and EAH3870 TOP. We have tested both of these graphics cards using Ubuntu 7.10 and have compared the results to other products using the fglrx driver, including the ATI Radeon HD 2900XT 512MB. These are the world's first Linux benchmarks of these new mainstream ATI graphics processors.

Will Windows Server 2008 fully embrace Linux?

To embrace Linux, or not embrace Linux, that is the question.

This week at LWN: Enterprise realtime and cooperative development

At the end of November, LWN posted a pointer to Novell's announcement for its SUSE Linux Enterprise Realtime offering. The resulting comments were surprisingly negative. Some readers took exception to the language of the release - though it really is just the standard tortured English which is seemingly required for press releases. But others question the need for realtime response in "enterprise" settings. Anybody who is still wondering about the value of that product will be doubly confused now that Red Hat has announced a realtime distribution service of its own. Clearly somebody sees a need for deterministic response in big corporate deployments.

OLPC XO Review

The XO is the laptop produced by the One Laptop Per Child program (OLPC) headed by Mr. Nicholas Negroponte with a goal to provide every child a laptop. Colin Dean was one of the first to participate in G1G1, and this is his review of it.

Damn Small Linux replaces Xpaint with MtPaint

I found out through Distrowatch that the next release of Damn Small Linux, version 4.2, will replace Xpaint with the unusually light, highly usable MtPaint -- pretty much my favorite Linux image editor. (If it dealt with IPTC info in JPGs, it would be my favorite photo-editing program on all platforms.)

Freedomware Gamefest 2007: Special report!

A jolt of light stroke in a dark corner of a silent arena. A ghost of the space, spectator of the event, wonders as a warrior spawns. Behold, as the corners of the arena light up in a flash and the battle cries its immediacy through a hundred beeps of the warrior souls connecting and communicating.. "Good game and good luck."

Ruby on Rails 2.0 and Scaffolding

  • Fairleads Blog; By Sean Lynch (Posted by number6x on Dec 15, 2007 11:44 AM EDT)
  • Story Type: Tutorial; Groups: Debian
Ruby on Rails 2.0 changes the way Rails uses scaffolding. This has made many existing Rails tutorials obsolete. This Rails 2.0 tutorial covers installing Rails and getting the scaffolded shell of an application up and running. Part 1 covers installation and generation of a scaffolded Rails application. Later parts will cover more coding in depth.

Torvalds: Linux to make dent in smartphones in '08

The OS has made little headway into phones so far, but that is set to change due to Google's push for open-source platform for mobile devices.

When is a Wikipedia not a Wikipedia? (When it's a "Knol")

Or so, at least, Google would like you to conclude. Significant differences include single-author control (but the freedom for other authors to set up competing pages as well), bylines for page authors, reader ranking, and - oh yes - Google ads (authors interested in allowing ad placements would get a "substantial" share of the resulting revenues).

How to: Linux Configure Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) Firewall

Demilitarized zone, used to secure an internal network from external access. You can use Linux firewall to create DMZ easily. There are many different ways to design a network with a DMZ. The basic method is to use a single Linux firewall with 3 Ethernet cards. The following simple example discusses Linux DMZ setup and forwarding public traffic to internal servers.
