Aptitude v.s. apt-get

Being an Ubuntu/Debian user (yes, I use and advocate both), I have fallen in love with the Advanced Packaging Tool, also known as apt. Before Ubuntu, I played in the world of RPM hell, with distros such as Red Hat itself, Mandrake (as it was called back then), and even SuSE. But if any of you have noticed, apt is 16 different tools that you need to become familiar with, if you are to start learning about your Debian-based distro. I don’t know about you, but doesn’t that seem a bit bass-ackwards?

OpenSUSE 10.3 beta and build service app

To mark the second birthday of the openSUSE project, the community program last week celebrated with two announcements – the availability of the first beta of openSUSE 10.3 and the growth of the openSUSE Build Service with a new end-user interface. The openSUSE Build Service is a framework that provides an infrastructure for software developers to create and compile packages for multiple Linux distributions. It addresses the problem that developers have in providing their software across multiple Linux platforms.

An offline wiki for your desktop

Zim looks, feels, and almost works like a common text editor, but it mixes editing features like spell checking with the page cataloging features of wikis. Zim's ability to link documents, both offline and online, is useful, especially when you're working with multiple documents. In fact, Zim's help document is written using Zim itself, and makes full use of its capabilities to link to pages that explain particular features in detail. Zim isn't really a text editor; it's actually an offline wiki that has advanced text editing features. But whatever you call it, Zim can help you become more productive.

DistroWatch Weekly: Interview with Stephan Kulow, development release galore

  • DistroWatch.com; By Ladislav Bodnar (Posted by dave on Aug 13, 2007 2:05 AM EDT)
  • Story Type: Newsletter
Welcome to this year's 33rd issue of DistroWatch Weekly! It was a great week for all those who enjoy testing open source software; not only are all the major Linux distributions busy readying their upcoming releases, the two main desktop environments, GNOME and KDE, are also keeping us interested in their latest desktop innovations. The openSUSE project especially has been generating plenty of news; it has published an update to its online software installation service and has released a new openSUSE live CD set. To add to the growing presence of openSUSE in the headlines, we have asked Stephan Kulow, the new Project Manager who took over in the middle of July, a few questions about the distribution's future direction. Also in this issue: ex-Gentoo's Daniel Robbins talks about the Portage package manager and DragonFly BSD's Matthew Dillon defends the BSD licence. Happy reading!

The Art & Science of CSS

This book by Adams, et al (sorry, too many names) is a puzzling mix of the elementary and the advanced. On the one hand, it starts the reader out with very basic style sheet formatting but tosses in flash replacement which the newbie wouldn't necessarily be aware of. I'm not complaining. It's just that "The Art & Science of CSS" doesn't quite present like so many other books on the subject.

Your First Date With Vbespy

  • Story Type: News Story
Jerome Glisse and his posse of open-source developers have been making good progress with an open-source "Avivo" graphics driver for the ATI Radeon X1000 (R500) series hardware. However, one roadblock they have hit along the way is with TMDS setting issues on the Radeon X1200, X1300, X1400, and X1900 series. This roadblock had also led to postponing the Avivo 0.1.0 release. Now if you are an ATI R500 owner and have been wondering how you can help with the advancement of this open-source driver, there is a way even without prior development experience and that is by providing VBE mode-setting BIOS dumps. As you have probably never created such dumps before, we have written a brief tutorial on using vbespy/vbetest for the first time.

Copy hard disk or partition image to another system using a network and netcat (nc)

netcat utility (nc command) considered as TCP/IP swiss army knife. It reads and writes data across network connections, using TCP or UDP protocol. It is designed to be a reliable “back-end” tool that can be used directly or easily driven by other programs and scripts. At the same time, it is a feature-rich network debugging and exploration tool, since it can create almost any kind of connection you would need and has several interesting built-in capabilities.

This howto explain migrating data between two server hard drives using netcat over a network. It is very easy to copy complete drive image from one server to another.
