Most Popular Beginner Linux Questions Answered

  •; By Andrea Cordingly (Posted by VISITOR on Jun 23, 2005 1:47 PM EDT)

In this interview with Mark Rais, I get him to answer the top questions beginners have including moving from Windows to Linux, finding files in Linux, using the File Manager, uncompressing using gzip and tar, understanding permissions and knowing where applications are located! I'll be the first to admit, I tried to suck his mind dry on this one regarding Linux new users.

The next chapter in the Merkey saga

  • (Posted by dave on Jun 23, 2005 1:22 PM EDT)
  • Story Type: News Story; Groups: SCO
Jeff Merkey claims to have filed his suit against Bruce Perens, Pamela Jones, Slashdot, and 200 "John Does". It makes for wild reading. "Perens posted Internet messages on stating to Linux and OSS members that 'Merkey works for SCO,' and that 'Merkey should be placed in a file of people to be killed'. Merkey has not or ever worked for SCO or the Canopy Group." Your editor, strangely enough, is unable to find any comments on the system calling for anybody to be killed.

LAMP made easy with XAMPP

The LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP/Perl) software stack is emerging as a popular and cost-effective Web development platform. This is understandable given that it comprises a free operating system, Web server, database, and scripting language. However, a problem with having a number of separate open source components is integration. The XAMPP project aims to eliminate this problem. With XAMPP, there is no reason for developers to skip over an open source solution when considering Web development platforms.

  • Story Type: Interview; Groups: Kernel
Andrew Morton posted a list of patches that he intends to push from his -mm tree to Linus' main 2.6 tree intended for inclusion in the 2.6.13 kernel. He explains, "this summarises my current thinking on various patches which are presently in -mm. I cover large things and small-but-controversial things. Anything which isn't covered here (and that's a lot of material) is probably a 'will merge', unless it obviously isn't."

CivicSpace Labs: Better politics through open source

  • NewsForge (Posted by dave on Jun 23, 2005 7:30 AM EDT)
  • Story Type: News Story
Open source software is everywhere nowadays -- even in the cautious offices of political campaigns. During last year's U.S. presidential campaign, a staff speechwriter from the Howard Dean campaign begged for Linux on his laptop, according to Zack Rosen, a DeanSpace Web developer, technical volunteer coordinator and Web radio producer. Rosen says that the Dean campaign's general manager Joe Trippi was "the first to have authority to start talking meaningfully about the concept of 'open source politics.'" Rosen and other Dean and Wesley Clark campaign alums have staked the future of their new project, CivicSpace Labs, on the idea that open source and politics can co-exist in "bottom-up people-powered campaigns."
