Joint Statement about GNU/Linux Security  View Printable Version 
Wednesday, April 07 2004 @ 09:15 CST
Contributed by: Linegod

General News"GNU/Linux vendors Debian, Mandrake, Red Hat, and SUSE have joined together to give a common statement about the Forrester report entitled "Is Linux more Secure than Windows?". Despite the report's claim to incorporate a qualitative assessment of vendor reactions to serious vulnerabilities, it treats all vulnerabilities as equal, regardless of their risk to users. As a result, the conclusions drawn by Forrester have extremely limited real-world value for customers assessing the practical issue of how quickly serious vulnerabilities get fixed."

Open Source Software: What Is It and How Does It Work?  View Printable Version 
Monday, April 05 2004 @ 07:05 CST
Contributed by: Linegod

General News" Solicitor Dr. Ben Kremer and his firm, Freehills in Australia, have graciously given Groklaw permission to reproduce his recent article, "Open Source Software: What Is It and How Does It Work?" originally published in their newsletter and available on the Internet here. I asked for permission because I find it to be one of the clearest, most understandable articles I've come across yet on the GPL, what it is legally (contract or license), and how it works, and I thought it was important to present it to as wide an audience as possible and to have it in Groklaw's searchable collection. Thank you, Dr. Kremer and Freehills."

Temporary Outage  View Printable Version 
Sunday, April 04 2004 @ 08:52 CST
Contributed by: Linegod

Warped SystemsNo one is going to see this until the system is back up, but in case you where wondering, we're experiencing a little difficulty with our Internet connection. It should be back up and running sometime Monday afternoon.

The extended outage did bring some networking and DNS issues to our attention, so it's not a complete loss.

New Mandrake Mirror Structure coming soon  View Printable Version 
Saturday, April 03 2004 @ 09:19 CST
Contributed by: Linegod

Mandrake LinuxGreg Meyer posted this helpful info to the Mandrake Expert List:

A couple of days ago, Warly, The Mandrake release captain, posted to the Cooker Mailing List that the structure of the mirrors will be chaning soon to accomodate the finalization of the Mandrake 10.0 release and the continued development that will be going on in the stable community branch. Here is his original post:


The reason I am posting this is that as the mirrors start to synch up over the next few days, you may find your urpmi/rpmdrake spitting out errors when you try to istall something or update. This will simply be because the paths on the mirrors will have changed, and consequently, your urpmi sources will have to be changed to accomodate this.

KDE The KDE Germany Team was exhibiting the KDE team's achievements at the world's largest computer trade show CeBIT in Hannover, Germany from 18.03 - 24.03. Hosted at the booth of Linup-Front, the team presented KDE 3.2 as well as a recent developer snapshot of KDE PIM on an Athlon64 system. Most people asked to see the KDE/Qt integration for and GTK as well as Kontact. They were impressed to learn how fast KDE is implementing the promise to become the "Integrative Desktop Environment" that lets you use a wide variety of popular applications while still maintaining consistency in look and -to some extent- even feel. Another focus of interest was KIOSK, which is now even easier to handle thanks to Kiosk Tool. Read on for the full story about KDE at CeBIT 2004.

Mandrakesoft Exits Bankruptcy  View Printable Version 
Tuesday, March 30 2004 @ 05:02 CST
Contributed by: Linegod

Mandrake LinuxAltadena, CA; Paris, France; March 30th, 2004 - The Commerce Court today accepted Mandrakesoft's exit plan from 'redressement judiciaire' (Chapter 11 like protection). The plan was approved as proposed by the company and its court appointed administrator.

The plan provides for the payment of creditors, without recapitalization as a precondition, over a period of nine years. The turnaround was largely made possible by improvements in the company's financial results -- Mandrakesoft recently recorded its first profitable quarter since 1999. This signals the return to normal operations for Mandrakesoft after a 14 month observation period.

It's been more than a week since we last posted. For good reason. The lights have been burning at all indecent hours at openBench Labs to bring you an arboretum of facts and observations as you plow your way through storage networking to figure out what designs cost least in money and trauma. In the first of a series of reviews we pose the question: Is it time for SMBs to move to a SAN fabric? Read what openBench Labs discovers as we examine 2GB SAN infrastructure using nStor storage system and storage management software, and products from Brocade and Emulex.
