A company founded out of the Shuttleworth Foundation schools Linux project has started rolling out computer laboratories to schools in South Africa's North-West Province and plans to equip all maths and science-focused Dinaledi schools in the province with computer labs in 2007.
Ask any Linux user and they'll likely point out that one of the key challenges they face these days is showing beginners how to accomplish specific tasks with any given distribution. Think about it, how many times have we simply shuffled them off to the community forums rather than making time to show them step-by-step “how to get things done?”
DD Erich Schubert has a nice story (even with photo) about his niece Fiona visiting him and discovering his Tux. Our daughter Hanna Zuleikha, almost the same age, went to the “Zoo am Meer” in Bremerhaven with us in February, and guess at what she’s looking here:
LXer Feature: 08-Oct-2006
In Charlotte, our Linux User Group is struggling, as others do, with getting our act together. While at the Ohio LinuxFest last weekend, I picked up a few interesting notes from the panel discussion about user group administration. I thought I would share what I learned, in the hopes that it might help your LUG, too.
Ever feel like you're not getting the most out of your multiprocessor machine? The xjobs utility allows you to schedule several processes to run simultaneously to make the most of your system's resources.
When Thomas Andrews sent out a call to the Cape Town Linux Linux User Group to self-raise funds for a Futurex Cape Town 2006 stand last week, the community responded with vigour, donating R10 000 in the first day.
Welcome to this year's 41st issue of DistroWatch Weekly! With the release of Mandriva Linux 2007 last week it would seem that the once highly popular desktop Linux distribution has finally closed a shaky chapter behind itself and decided to return to what it does best - proudly produce a great desktop Linux system for the world. This issue of DistroWatch Weekly focuses on Mandriva Linux, its recent past and new products. But Mandriva 2007 wasn't the only major distribution release last week; the fans of Slackware Linux also had a reason to celebrate as version 11.0 of the world's oldest surviving Linux distribution finally hit the download mirrors, promptly followed by a number of Slackware derivatives for all kinds of purposes and processor architectures. Also in this issue: we'll take a quick look at the new VectorLinux 5.8, summarise the week in the troubled world of Debian GNU/Linux, and point our readers to a good comparison between openSUSE and SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop. Happy reading!
IPCop offers an interesting interface that provides you with detailed information about what kind of attacks are currently active on your network. This information is provided as an integration with Snort, a project that focuses on discovering intrusion attempts.
As an ardent C++ developer, I’m often traumatized by the amount of potentially useful software infrastructure that simply doesn't exist. When working in Java there are multitudes of frameworks and reusable libraries that allow many problems to be solved at high levels of abstraction without reference to the underlying technology. So why are there so many things the C++ developer must do by hand, which a Java developer can do by reusing existing code?
The latest LinuxQuestions.org Podcast. Topics include Linux kernel developers’ position on GPLv3, why Torvalds is sitting out the GPLv3 process, IBM adopts Open patent policy, Mozilla Firefox trademark and Debian, McAfee and Symantec think Vista is unfair and the truth about a claimed Firefox exploit.
Linux or open source seems to thrive wherever Left governments rule. And as Kerala schools log Microsoft out and boot open source systems, Linux world is buzzing with excitement over possibilities in the communist-ruled states. Though West Bengal and Tripura have to go whole hog to adopt a free software model, ideological closeness is more than evident.
There’s no shortage of open source programmers out there. According to a recent study of 5,000 developers by research firm IDC, 71% say they have used open source software, and half reported that use of open source is increasing within their organisations.
In this week's KDE Commit-Digest: KBoard, a game canvas, gets several new chess-based themes, whilst KSokoban gets many new levels.

KBlog, a library to interface with various blogs, is imported into the PIM playground in KDE SVN.
This multi-media streaming engine integrates well with existing web-based enterprise applications, has been tested on Apache Axis and WebSphere service hosts, and can run on both Linux and Windows.
The open source community doesn’t always deliver software that customers want, says Rob Levy, executive vice president and chief technology officer of BEA Systems.
The latest Internet Security Threat Report released by Symantec shows that it is none other than home users, who are being increasingly targeted by attackers for identity theft, fraud, and other financially motivated crimes.

Security professionals warned developers on Thursday that they need to be aware that their open-source repositories can now be easily mined, allowing attackers to target programs that are likely to be flawed. While Google could previously be used to look for specific strings, now the search engine riffles through code that much better.
Northern Marianas College instructor David Rumptz will hold the next series of his Linux OS classes from Oct. 10 to 12 at Room V104 of the campus.
