Subject: LyX Devs Release First 2.0 Release Candidates

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Considering that they've been working on it for about two years now, the LyX 2.0 release candidates are starting to appear relatively quickly (RC2 at time of writing). Considering that the file format is now fairly fixed and should now be forwards compatible with all later versions, this might be a good time for LyX die hards to check out 2.0, if they haven't already.

Ubuntu 11.10 is codenamed the Oneiric Ocelot, which is perhaps the most unique Ubuntu codename to date, but going up against Mark Shuttleworth's next distribution update will be Fedora 16. What's the codename for that next Red Hat release? It might be called a Beefy Miracle...

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

with the recent release of jpsp, it’s now possible to emulate PSP to a certain extent. Various commercial games are verified working with the emulator as well. For using jpcsp, you first need to make sure that your system meets the minimum system requirements. Since emulation puts a lot of strain on the CPU,

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Despite the many successes seen from the desktop Linux camp over the years, there are some areas that continue to be left largely unchecked. Rather than automatically painting my findings with a negative brush, instead let's examine each issue closely.

Subject: Have Some Cheese with that Webcam

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Since the launch of Linux Magazine TV (LMTV) in February of this year, my interest in video has increased beyond any reasonable limits. I’m obsessed with video and our efforts in this new area for us. For weeks I’ve tried to find a way to use my new Panasonic HM-TA1 pocket video camera for new LMTV entries and my own projects. Last week I discovered Cheese Webcam Booth (Cheese), which is the topic of this week’s article. Using Cheese is intuitive and closely resembles the Apple iPad2 Photo Booth app. The difference in price between Cheese (free) and Photo Booth ($499+ for the iPad2) is significant, which definitely gives you something to smile about.

Subject: 7 Ways of Staying Backed Up on Ubuntu Linux

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

You’ve installed a multitude of packages on your heavily customized Ubuntu desktop. Games, themes, and tweaks, it’s got it all. Plus, you’ve got your whole music and movies collection meticulously organized. With a wide relaxed grin you bask in the glory of your new-found productivity so much that you’re already thinking of penning a self-help book. Meanwhile, as you are lost in that reverie, a 3-eyed monster suddenly appears out of nowhere, snatches your laptop and gobbles it up! OK, I might be exaggerating, but the fact is, we can never be 100 percent sure of our data.

Subject: Could Google's vendor crackdown backfire?

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Google's reported decision to more tightly police its Android platform could improve overall quality, but runs the risk of losing vendors to Microsoft's Windows Phone 7, say analysts. Meanwhile, despite the release of the iPhone 4 on Verizon, Android kept building U.S. market share in February, growing to a leading 33 percent, says ComScore.

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

With Linux comes great power — and great control. When you're running Linux, you have thousands of applications, utilities, and commands at your fingertips — and ultimate control over those applications as well. When they start, how they start, and (more importantly) how they stop. Let's take a look at some of the commands and utilities you have to master your Linux systems.

Subject: Google bid for a patent armoury

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Google has placed a $900 million bid on Nortel's patent portfolio in an attempt to build a "formidable patent portfolio" to defend the company from other company's patent related law suits. The bid from Google has been selected by Nortel as the "stalking horse" bid making its $900M offer a starting point for other bidders. The company said that protecting the open source communities around Android and Chrome was one of the reasons it was bidding. Google is still a relatively young company and has not applied for that many patents.

Subject: This week at LWN: Slackware 13.37: Linux for the fun of it

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

The SUSE family of distributions has the motto "have a lot of fun," but it's Slackware that really pushes that philosophy to its limit. While most of the major Linux distributions are shaped by corporate influence, community politics, and pursuit of mainstream success, Patrick Volkerding has taken a much different path with Slackware, which is readily apparent in the release candidate of Slackware 13.37.

The Arduino has become a white-hot topic these days by granting the ability to allow anyone with a computer, a 30-dollar Arduino, and an incentive to route electrons through sensors and actuators and make them do interesting things. The latest book to make it to this topical pile-on is technologist Michael Margolis' Arduino Cookbook. Does it have the essential recipes to satisfy the discerning palettes of Arduino enthusiasts?

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Booting a computer is always more complex than one wants to think. On the PC side, it looks as if BIOS finally is retired and replaced by EFI (I wonder which was the last OS to use BIOS for anything that just loading a secondary bootloader). On Mac, EFI has been around for a while. On embedded Linux systems, however, u-boot has been a big player for a long time.

Subject: US: Android is the most popular smartphone system

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

US market researcher comScore reports that 69.5 million US citizens own a smartphone, and that one third of these phones run Google's open source Android mobile operating system. On the popularity scale, RIM and Apple are next with 29% and 25% of users, leaving Microsoft (8%) and Palm (3%) far behind. According to market researcher Nielsen, the US sales figures for Android phones have already been above those for RIM and Apple since July 2010, but this is the first time that Android is also leading in terms of devices in use. comScore said that last November, RIM was in the lead with 34%, followed by Android and Apple with an almost identical share each of 25% of users.
