In this article we will be looking at the impact of CONFIG_NO_HZ/Dynamic Ticks, which will be found in the Linux 2.6.21 kernel. The option has been available as a patch for quite a while, but not until Linux 2.6.21-rc1 had it been merged into the upstream kernel. When enabled, there will only be timer ticks when they are needed. The end-user benefit is cooler-running processors and increased power savings. We have investigated this change with a notebook and desktop computer.

"This tutorial shows how to implement SPF in a Postfix 2.x installation. The Sender Policy Framework is an open standard specifying a technical method to prevent sender address forgery. There are lots of SPF extensions and patches available for Postfix, but most require that you recompile Postfix. Therefore we will install the postfix-policyd-spf-perl package from openspf.org which is a Perl package and can be implemented in existing Postfix installations (no Postfix compilation required)."
The first day of the annual Free and Open Source Developers' European Meeting in Brusssels was very busy for the KDE team: attending talks by other talented hackers, hosting KDE related talks in the developer room, representing KDE at the booth, mingling with other hackers, bug hunting and work on new features. KDE had a strong presence this year, at least twice as many KDE people attended including a very strong showing from the Amarok developers. Speakers in the KDE developer room included Jos van den Oever, Stephan Laurient, Flavio and Sander Koning.
Considering that Eric S Raymond is a board member of Freespire, and considering his well known posture regarding allowing proprietary codecs to be freely used by default in Linux, this article ponders why he did not choose to embrace Freespire or Linspire and chose Ubuntu instead?
It's well known that the Jmicron JMB363 SATA,PATA controller is not supported by RHEL AS 4.4 at this time, what causes attempts to install RHEL 4.4 (CentOS 4.4) from IDE CDROM to fail. Work around for mentioned issue follows below.
RiscPkg author Graham Shaw has written and published a new book for RISC OS programmers. His latest dead tree tome, Using UnixLib, aims to introduce coders to the GCCSDK library that provides the basic C function set as well as, effectively, a UNIX-compatibility layer.
SQL Hacks works well because of the fact that it does what it says. It hacks. It gets in to SQL and shows you how to do things that you would have to, in many cases, search for hours to find out how to accomplish. This is not for the beginner, rather these books target more experienced users.

NVIDIA has stated over on NvNews that the next Linux display driver will introduce a new naming convention. With the 1.0-9XXX series coming to an end we once believed that NVIDIA would continue the series with the 2.0-XXXX driver. However, NVIDIA's Andy Ritger has stated that the series will continue with 100.XX.XX.
The basic set of GNOME panel apps ranges from the practical, such as clocks and system monitors, to the mildly amusing, but apparently too traditional to dispense with, such as Fish. However, in the last few years, an increasing number of GNOME applications are being designed to fit into the panel. Since many of these recent apps are interesting but too minor to rate a full-length review, here's a roundup of some that have caught my attention. Although all of them are in early release, each hints at new functionality and levels of customization that might soon be available on the desktop.
Sometimes I just get it plain old wrong. Yesterday's entry on using Google Apps as a risk management decision, and then to consult your internal legal team. Then as one reader pointed out, the idea was sound, but then I advocated using Drupal and Linux on any old shared environment. So basically, I advocated against Google Apps, and then said to do the same thing that Google Apps do, which is provide a shared collaborative environment that the company does not control by buying some 5 dollar a month hosting company. The reader was dead right, and I was dead wrong. Here's why.
