Hooray, it's a 4.1.1!  View Printable Version 
Wednesday, September 03 2008 @ 09:53 AM CST
Contributed by: Linegod

KDEAfter last week's update to the KDE 3.5 series, today's KDE release updates the stable KDE 4.1 branch to KDE 4.1.1. It bears the codename "Ceeidae" referring to an in-joke often made during Akademy 2008. With only a good month of development time -- and Akademy in between -- the changelog is still impressively long. Pretty much all applications have received the developers' attention, resulting in a long list of bugfixes and improvements.

Downgrade to XP or Upgrade to Mandriva  View Printable Version 
Monday, September 01 2008 @ 03:25 PM CST
Contributed by: Linegod

Mandriva LinuxFrom Lazy Tech Guy:

Everything is OK with this Laptop, just one issue- It has Vista Basic. Now Vista Basic does not have the cool features of Home Premium, nor is it as snappy as Windows XP. Dell also installs a 30-days subscription of McAffee anti-virus, which although secures the system, but at the same time further makes Vista slower.

Mandriva Improves Silicon Motion Driver  View Printable Version 
Monday, September 01 2008 @ 01:09 PM CST
Contributed by: Linegod

Mandriva LinuxFrom phoronix:

Along with VIA releasing a new open-source X.Org video driver, there is work underway on improving the status of another open-source graphics driver. Silicon Motion is perhaps more obscure than VIA Technologies when it comes to integrated graphics, but they primarily specialize in low-power graphics chips for tablet PCs.

Preventing Brute Force Attacks With Fail2ban On Mandriva 2008.1  View Printable Version 
Monday, September 01 2008 @ 11:28 AM CST
Contributed by: Linegod

HowtoFrom HowtoForge:

In this article I will show how to install and configure fail2ban on a Mandriva 2008.1 system. Fail2ban is a tool that obseves login attempts to various services, e.g. SSH, FTP, SMTP, Apache, etc., and if it finds failed login attempts again and again from the same IP address or host, fail2ban stops further login attempts from that IP address/host by blocking it with an iptables firewall rule.

The Joy of xargs  View Printable Version 
Monday, September 01 2008 @ 10:59 AM CST
Contributed by: Linegod

General NewsFrom LinuxPlanet:

xargs is an incredibly useful command: it takes in input and executes your chosen command on it: xargs command. Deceptively simple in concept; extremely powerful in execution. It's most commonly used to execute one command on the output from another command (command1 | xargs command2), and most often;the output-generating command is find (xargs is more flexible than the built-in -exec option). Here we'll look at xargs with find, and then at some other possibilities.

Why would anyone choose Windows over Linux?  View Printable Version 
Monday, August 18 2008 @ 09:18 AM CST
Contributed by: Linegod

LinuxI am going out on a limb here…really opening myself up for a flame-war. But you know - there are some defining moments that beg for such an action. That action? To question why anyone (when they KNOW the difference) would seriously choose a Windows operating system over Linux.
