Samba OXtender Adds File and Print Services for Windows Workstations to Leading Open Source Collaboration Platform
User level: Advanced Most Linux users are familiar with the top command, typically used to examine the system load on a local PC and others on the network. However, have you considered using top to monitor your system automatically and to warn you when a server is being overloaded?
Transactional Java database features improved performance and concurrency
DB2 Express-C Gives Enterprise Customers Dataserver Choice and Delivers the Power of DB2 to LAMP Application Development
Bundling of Support and Training Provides One Stop Shopping for Mid-Size Companies to Leverage the Power of Linux and the Support of Novell
OpenWrt, the GPLed Linux distribution for wireless routers, is at RC4 and is nearing the 1.0 release. We looked at RC2 last August, but things have changed since then -- for the better.
Corel Corp. may have given up on bringing WordPerfect to Linux, but that doesn't mean Linux users have to give up on running WordPerfect on Linux.
Both universities and companies gain from collaborative research and development efforts in a number of areas, including open source software, but the challenge of agreeable terms for the work and its results often hang up innovation. A new set of collaborative principles produced by universities including Carnegie Mellon, Georgia Tech, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Stanford, UC Berkeley, and companies including IBM, Hewlett-Packard, Cisco, and Intel, aims to speed the process and keep the cutting edge work at the edge.
And what are the real stories on LaGrande, Trusted Computing, Viiv and Intel's DRM support?
Putting an open source-based laptop in the hands of millions of users around the world will help drive home the importance of non-proprietary development and applications, says Red Hat
Bob Sutor, IBM's vice president of standards and open-source, expects a number of industries to embrace open-source software in 2006 -- and he expects IBM to play a role in many of those efforts. In an interview with Computerworld last week, Sutor also weighed in on the state of Linux and on Massachusetts' plans to use the XML-based OpenDocument file format.
It got more than a few Australians peeved and stirred up controversy, but the successful Dunedin, New Zealand, bid for Linux Australia's 2006 conference married slick planning and Kiwi ingenuity. The week-long conference, at the University of Otago, has attracted 500 delegates from around the world. Linux Australia president Jonathan Oxer is adamant Dunedin was an inspired choice. The nonprofit incorporated association accepts competing conference bids in the same way as the International Olympic Committee does.
Are you waiting--patiently or not--for one application finally to be ported to Linux to make your life easier? Novell wants to know what it is.
It has been interesting observing how lobbying works at the state level as the ODF situation has developed here in Massachusetts. The types of antics engaged in by those who log in their expense vouchers on K Street normally seem far away from most state capitals, but I expect that's because the level of scrutiny is much lower in the provinces than inside the Beltway.
Today, for many computing tasks, the open source ecosystem provides programs that equal or surpass what the proprietary Windows-based world offers. Gaming, however, is not among those areas, nor will it likely be anytime soon. But if we look further into this fascinating field, we find a number of positive developments.
Almost a third of UK organisations feel under pressure to take some of their business offshore to cut costs and tackle skill shortages, according to a new survey from the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD).
I swapped our companies’ old Snapgear Lite+ against my Linksys WRT54G, which I now use as a VPN endpoint to our companies’ Astaro firewall. In addition to the features the Snapgear had already, I can now monitor the thing with SNMP, and the hardware is about 4-5 times faster than what I had before.
Imagine trying to piece together a wireless network with no manuals, sporadic and slow access to the Internet, inadequate tools, a shortage of supplies, and hostile climates. The authors of a new book, "Wireless Networking in the Developing World", don't need to imagine because they have all worked under these conditions and now they have produced a manual they hope will help developing world users to build reliable wireless networks.
The book, which is available for download from the WNDW website, covers topics from basic radio physics and network design to equipment and troubleshooting.
There are times when you need to see what's running on another user's desktop. When you're both behind the same firewall, VNC is a good solution. But what happens when each user is behind different firewalls and you need a secure connection? Rob Reilly demonstrates how to make this happen.
Well, Hewlett Packard finally did it. According to 'Slick New Way to Install Linux' (beware evil popup advertising), HP has made Instalinux open source - so instead of downloading a ISO (cd image) you have to configure, you can configure the ISO before you download it.
