New Mageia development release name has been chosen, Cauldron!  View Printable Version 
Monday, September 27 2010 @ 07:09 AM CST
Contributed by: Linegod

General NewsSince were starting with a new base, a brand new name for the development release in Mageia needed to be found.

This was one of the many tasks that needed to be done to get Mageia going (although admittedly one of the fun tasks ). Olivier Thauvin, aka Nanar, accepted to take on this task and things started rolling when he posted a new thread in the mageia-discuss mailing list, with a couple of initially proposed names.

Why Broadcom's Release May be More Significant than Just Code  View Printable Version 
Saturday, September 25 2010 @ 09:58 PM CST
Contributed by: Linegod

Open SourceOn September 9 the news of Broadcom's release of the code for some of its wireless Ethernet chip sets sent shockwaves throughout the Linux community. Broadcom owners, as well as distribution developers have a reason to celebrate.

In the past, Broadcom owners had to resort to NDISwrapper or rely upon the limited reversed engineered drivers. Neither was optimal. The release of the code by Broadcom should eventually mean a much better Wi-Fi experience for owners of systems with Broadcom chip sets. But for those that like to read between the lines there may also be a deeper significance to this move.

Man crawls out of Ubuntu cave, finds KDE, likes it  View Printable Version 
Friday, September 24 2010 @ 08:36 PM CST
Contributed by: Linegod

KDEAn articulate, accurate, and well paced article on KDE 4.5, marred only by a point of view that I cannot seem to reconcile - one that appears to state that Ubuntu is the only relevant distribution, and Gnome is the only desktop anyone has ever seen before.

It is quite possible that I am overreacting, or reading far too much into it, but read it for yourself, and see what you think:

Mandriva - not dead yet.  View Printable Version 
Tuesday, September 21 2010 @ 12:56 PM CST
Contributed by: Linegod

Mandriva LinuxThe Mandriva Community will be autonomous and governance structures will be created to ensure freedom. The Mandriva enterprise is just an element of this independent community.

A community manager will be hired by Mandriva to help the community to implement these plans.

From a desktop point of view, Mandriva intends to be the BEST KDE DISTRIBUTION IN THE WORLD : easy to use, stable, rich featured and with excellent localization.

Mandriva Fork - Mageia  View Printable Version 
Sunday, September 19 2010 @ 05:15 PM CST
Contributed by: Linegod

Mandriva LinuxAs you may have heard, the future of the Mandriva Linux distribution is unclear.

Most employees working on the distribution were laid off when Edge-IT was liquidated. We do not trust the plans of Mandriva SA anymore and we don't think the company (or any company) is a safe host for such a project.

Many things have happened in the past 12 years. Some were very nice: the Mandriva Linux community is quite large, motivated and experienced, the distribution remains one of the most popular and an award-winning product, easy to use and innovative. Some other events did have some really bad consequences that made people not so confident in the viability of their favourite distribution.

VMware is buying Novell  View Printable Version 
Friday, September 17 2010 @ 09:23 AM CST
Contributed by: Linegod

General NewsI'm not the least bit surprised that the Wall Street Journal is reporting that VMware will be buying Novell's Linux business. After all, I suggested that VMware could really use Novell's SUSE Linux for its future, and I also knew that Novell was in hot and heavy merger and acquisition talks earlier this week. My own sources have also now confirmed that VMware is Novell's suitor.

SSH Security and You - /bin/false is *not* security  View Printable Version 
Tuesday, September 14 2010 @ 01:07 PM CST
Contributed by: Linegod

HowtoWhile at RIT around 2004 or 2005, I discovered that a few important machines at the datacenter allowed all students, faculty, and staff to authenticate against them via ssh. Everyone's shells appear to be set to /bin/false (or some derivative) on said machines, so the only thing you'll see after you authenticate is the login banner and your connection will close. I thought to myself, "Fine, no shell for me. I wonder if port forwarding works?"

How I boosted my Vim  View Printable Version

HowtoA few weeks ago, I felt inspired by articles from Jeff Kreeftmeijer and Armin Ronacher. I took some time to configure and fine-tune my Vim environment. A lot of new stuff made it into my .vimrc file and my .vim directory. This blog post is a summary describing what Ive added and how I use it in my daily work.

KDE 4.5 Desktop Activities Bring New Meaning to Organization  View Printable Version 
Friday, September 10 2010 @ 10:51 AM CST
Contributed by: Linegod

KDEKDE 4.5 brings to the table plenty of useful, functional, innovative features. One of those very features is the Desktop Activity. Although many scoffed at the idea (even tried to get the feature pulled), those same naysayers are (hopefully) glad their requests were not followed. Why? The KDE Desktop Activities feature is a great new desktop metaphor that takes the Linux desktop to new levels of organization.
