  • Story Type: News Story; Groups: Gentoo
Gentoo Linux has released its first update of 2006, continuing the evolution of the meta-distribution, adding new software versions and improving support for PowerPC architectures.

It also offers what Gentoo developers are claiming to be the first distribution with compile time optimization for the POWER5 processor. That support comes partially thanks to an IBM donation to Gentoo.

The announcement of a new project to support Intel's PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network Connection mini-PCI express adapter (IPW3945) was met with mixed reactions.

Hacker Defender Rootkit Guru Kills Stealth Project

Hacker Defender has long been the bane of improperly protected Windows users, especially when cloaked by its highly capable antidetection service. Together, the technologies are a one-two punch that antivirus software can't deflect. Nevertheless, the architect of one of the most successful attack combinations in Windows history has decided to throw in the towel. Email Battles tells you why.

GNOME 2.14 due next month

The countdown to the next update to the GNOME desktop is on: mark March 15 on your calendar. (Unless, of course, you're a KDE disciple, or one of those CLI old-school types.) VoIP support, improved security for corporate deployments and several tools for making it easier to search the Web are some of the new features uses can expect in Version 2.14 of GNOME.

Os X under attack

In the past few weeks, Apple's Mac OS X has taken some very serious security hits, leading some of us professionally paranoid security types to wonder if we're finally seeing the long-expected surge of attacks on Apple systems. I never did buy into the theory that Apple's software was immune to malware or significant vulnerabilities — I've always figured that vandals attack the most obvious target, which is why Microsoft vulnerabilities are so often in the security headlines.

Researchers Work to Simulate Electrical Properties of Low-Cost Alternative to Silicon

Where is the outrage as Oracle bids for open source?

Where is the outrage? Hey as you will be reading soon, from an informed source, some of the acquired properties are necessary for Oracle's survial due to its lack of functional tools. This does not seem, at least in some of the cases, to buy and bury. If Oracle went that route it might find they owned only a zombie whereas the Ghost was outside running wild and free.

To be fair, he does mention that true friend of open and free SAP is helping fund MySQL AB's search for alternative transaction support. This buying fenzy by Oracle may end in making it a friendlier supported of open and free. Patience, lets wait and see.

HP has said that DreamWorks Animation has implemented an HP solution based on a service-oriented architecture that simplifies and consolidates key business operations.

A service-oriented architecture (SOA) is an approach to building and managing IT infrastructures using standards-based software and services as autonomous, re-usable components.

HP worked closely with DreamWorks to integrate several of its key business applications into the new architecture. Overall, the HP SOA approach provides DreamWorks with a more streamlined workflow and a common look and feel across each application.

Switching to SUSE 10

Back in November, sharkscott decided to go cold turnkey from XP to Linux. He's a rep for HP and works in places like CompUSA.

Lots of people posted to his thread on Lxer and helped him a lot.

So, on his own, he posted a nice piece on

I started a thread on my switch to SuSE 10 from XP. I am pretty much a newbie still and with the help of those who responded I have come a long way in my knowledge and experience. I thought that it might be of help to someone out there who is like me. I know my way around a computer but I am not a programmer or system administrator by trade.

A survey of free font licenses

Suddenly, it's free font license time. The Bitstream Vera license, the starting point for most free font licenses, is several years old. In late January, SIL International's Non-Roman Script Initiative announced the SIL Open Font license. A new draft of the STIX License is due in March, with fonts scheduled to be released in beta in April and in final form in June. Each of these licenses has been developed in consultation with the free and open source software (FOSS) communities and strives to balance the philosophy of the communities with the concerns of font designers.
