System Monitoring for the lazy admin part 1  View Printable Version 
Tuesday, December 21 2010 @ 12:12 pm CST
Contributed by: Linegod

General NewsOnce upon a time, I used to not care about the health of my servers. And while some still suffer in relative silence, for the most part I have changed course on the matter, and there’s just no excuse NOT to monitor things up the wazoo, just in case.

But, monitoring can be complex. There are services out there that’ll do it for you, Open source software packages and commercial solutions alike. But, all of that is TOO MUCH EFFORT for the lazy admin. Nagios, for example, is powerful and flexible. But it takes time to get comfortable with it. And a commercial solution based on nagios, groundworks, which is meant to make things easy, is downright bloated and clunky to work with.

Ubuntu Myopia Continues Among Users  View Printable Version 
Monday, December 20 2010 @ 05:36 pm CST
Contributed by: Linegod

General NewsGo ahead and try a Google search for “Linux” in the news feeds. In fact, try looking up “Linux” in any news search engine and see what you come up with.

Notice a pattern yet? For some reason that seems to escape most people, Ubuntu "owns" the Linux headlines with very few exceptions. Obviously Chrome OS and Android are in the top news headlines as well, however generally it's Ubuntu that shows up as most popular in open source news these days.

Touching the X11  View Printable Version 
Wednesday, December 15 2010 @ 04:21 pm CST
Contributed by: Linegod

General NewsThere was no easy way to make use of touch- input devices on Linux with Qt. Up until now. On a recent meeting with other people interested in getting touch (and here we are also talking about touch with multiple points) in Linux/X11 during the X.org Developer Summit and Ubuntu Developer Summit (great events!), it has been decided to fill this gap.

Making SFTP transfers fast  View Printable Version 
Thursday, December 09 2010 @ 07:03 am CST
Contributed by: Linegod

General NewsSFTP, the Secure File Transfer Protocol, is a misleading name. It gives you the impression that it might be something like a secure version of FTP, perhaps something like FTPS but modeled over SSH instead of SSL. But it isn’t!

Monday, November 01 2010 @ 08:56 pm CST
Contributed by: Linegod

General NewsFollowing the fork in the open office suite development and the foundation of The Document Foundation, the dispute with main sponsor Oracle appears to have come to a head.

Introducing µTorrent for Linux  View Printable Version 
Saturday, October 09 2010 @ 02:28 pm CST
Contributed by: Linegod

General NewsIf you've ever looked into the various programs available to download via bittorrent, you will probably have discovered µtorrent. Back then it was probably already tiny and full-featured at the same time. It even had customizations to better run inside WINE. But it didn't run natively on Linux. Of course that made the very low resource bittorrent client much more resource hungry. Now this all changed.

And the major reason that is cited by most or all of them is the issue with Desktop Publishing (DTP) application. However, for those who feel pessimistic about using Linux can now relax their apprehensions with Scribus.
