Linux: Translating Kernel Documentation

The translation of a some kernel documentation into Japanese led to a discussion as to whether or not it was appropriate to include translated documentation with the kernel source code. One concern that was expressed was that as the number of included translations grows, so would the size of the kernel. Another concern was the liklihood that as time passes the various translations might become out of date.

Nixstaller and the inconvenience of do-it-yourself

Nixstaller 0.2.2 is a command-line tool for creating graphical installers for archived files on Unix-like systems. If that sounds paradoxical, it is. Although Nixstaller is easy enough to learn that you can produce your first installer within half an hour of installing it, much of the process is sufficiently painstaking that it cries out for the automation usually associated with a graphical interface.

Alan Cox on Patent Law and MS-Novell Deal

Alan Cox talks about cooperation with hardware vendors, US patent law, and what GPLv3 is going to mean for Novell: "Personally I think [the MS-Novell deal] is a bad idea and that Novell are going to get stung by the GPLv3, and rightfully so. The license is designed to keep the software free, if it fails to do this then it needs fixing, so GPLv3 hopefully will fix this flaw."

Legislators Wimp Out on Open Document Format Bills

  • ConsortiumInfo.org Standards Blog; By Andy Updegrove (Posted by Andy_Updegrove on Jun 10, 2007 7:29 PM EDT)
I am overdue in offering a few thoughts on the news that open format legislation has gone down in flames in legislatures throughout the US. Eric Lai and Gregg Keizer compiled the grim data in a story they posted at ComputerWorld last week titled Microsoft trounces pro-ODF forces in state battles over open document formats. What are we to make of this? Several things, I think, and none of them reflect very well on the legislators involved.

This tutorial provides step-by-step instructions on how to install VMware Server on a Fedora 7 desktop.

This has the benefit that you can run multiple operating systems on the same hardware which saves a lot of money, and you can move virtual machines from one VMware Server to the next one (or to a system that has the VMware Player which is also free).
