Everyday Linux Gripes

I've sometimes been labeled a cheerleader for Free Software. This doesn't bother me too much; there's no doubt that I am a lot more gung-ho on Linux and related technologies than most of my colleagues. But lest I seem like a full-time penguin apologist who can't fairly critique his platform of choice, I'm using this month's Free Agent to revel in that oldest pastime of tech columnists: I'm going to gripe.

Boot Fedora Linux Faster: How I Modified Fedora To Boot In Under 25 Seconds

I decided to look into reducing the time it takes to boot my current setup, which is Fedora 4. In doing so I was able to reduce the boot time of my Fedora 4 installation to less than 25 seconds (just above 24 seconds on average). Below I have documented what I did, and what you can use to potentially reduce your boot up time for Linux.

Best practices for portable patches

One of the things I usually take care of as a Gentoo packages maintainer is sending patches to upstream developers. If a patch is applied upstream, we can remove it from future versions of a package so we have less work to do to maintain the package. Unfortunately, it seems that other distributions and packagers don't always do the same. This is true not only for Linux distributions such as Debian, Fedora Core, and SUSE, but also for maintainers of packages in places like FreeBSD's Ports, DarwinPorts or Fink. Here are some tips for developers on making things easier for yourself and everyone who has to touch your code.

Network Intrusion Prevention Systems – When They’re Valuable, and When They’re Not

Features Anyone keeping track of the security vendor/technology hype knows that IPS has quickly replaced IDS as the “next big thing”. Depending on who you are, you may chalk this up to yet another infosec fad, or you could be of the opinion that IPS is actually making good on the promises that IDS never lived up to. I think it can be both – depending on your situation.

Remote application control with Bemused

  • Story Type: News Story
The catalyst for much innovation is laziness. Ask any old person. Years of strenuous room crossing to change TV channels led to the invention of the infrared remote control. Years of strenuous lifting and pointing of these remotes led to the invention of the direction-less RF remote control. Finally, years of strenuous searching for all these remotes has led to the invention of remote control applications for Bluetooth-equipped cell phones. Short of cybernetic implants, this may be the easiest way to control applications without having to touch a keyboard or mouse.

Marcel's Linux App of the Month : streamtuner

A long time ago (when the Earth was young), I worked as a top-40 disc jockey for a local radio station. The years have passed but my passion for radio hasn't dwindled. A few months ago, I discovered's directory of music streams. Not long after that, I ran across SHOUTcast. Between these two Web sites, I had access to literally thousands of Internet radio streams, both professional and amateur, covering every imaginable musical taste. As you can well imagine, browsing through these sites can become a rather time-consuming process — not that I minded, but time is something I seem to have a lot less of these days. That's why I like Jean-Yves Lefort's streamtuner so much.
