Injunction to Enforce GPL  View Printable Version 
Thursday, April 15 2004 @ 11:58 CST
Contributed by: Linegod

Open SourceFrom /.:

"The netfilter/iptables project has just been granted a preliminary injunction against a GPL infringing WLAN AP Vendor. The project is trying to fight against the increasing number of products sold in violation of the GPL. Following a number of out-of-court settlements, this is the first case where a company refused to sign a letter to cease and desist. So we took the logical next step and applied for a preliminary injunction. The court reviewed the case and confirmed that Sitecom is in fact in violation of the GPL license terms."

Sunday, April 11 2004 @ 09:32 CST
Contributed by: Linegod

KDEPosted by William Kendrick over at KDE News:

"I gave my presentation "KDE 3.2: A User's Perspective" to my local Linux User Group last Tuesday night as previously announced. The talk was well received, and left some people (even KDE users) overwhelmed with new information. It just goes to show that I wasn't the only one who knew KDE was a great environment, but hadn't even scratched the surface yet! My presentation 'slides', a collection of over 3MB of screenshots of KDE in action, are now online for your viewing pleasure"

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."

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 Impresses at CeBIT  View Printable Version 
Saturday, April 03 2004 @ 08:58 CST
Contributed by: Linegod

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.
