Subject: Desura Game Client Open Sourced As 'Desurium'

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

Desura has been open sourced as Desurium. The code is available under GPL v3. However, all the art and other assets are still owned by Desura. More details should be available soon. Desura Devs have been very friendly and accessible to the community from beginning. Open sourcing the game client is a great step forward and not only it will improve the client but will also attract more developers meaning more games for Linux.

For those less than impressed by Corel releasing some professional-grade Linux photography software earlier this month, Adobe still not providing native Linux clients for their popular applications, and haven't been fond of the major open-source photography programs out there, you may want to try out Darktable...

Subject: SOPA, PIPA Shelved, Internet's Defeat Postponed

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

Supposedly we've won today. Both the PROTECT-IP Act in the Senate and the Stop Online Piracy Act in the House of Representatives have been shelved by their respective sponsors. However, these acts have been shelved before, and the bags of money sent to DC didn't suddenly devalue, so I'm sure the next SOPA is being written as we speak. What did make me happy, though, was Neelie Kroes: the EU commissioner for the digital agenda has unambiguously distanced herself from SOPA, which she calls "bad legislation". Obama, the next time you want to make a statement with teeth, just wait for Kroes to do it for you.

Subject: An Open-Source, Reverse-Engineered Mali GPU Driver

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

There is some exciting news to break today on Phoronix... Coming up at FOSDEM (the Free Open-Source Developers' European Meeting in Brussels) will be the formal announcement of an open-source, reverse-engineered graphics driver for the ARM Mali graphics processor. OpenGL ES triangles are in action on open-source code. Will this be the start of fully open-source ARM graphics drivers for Android and Linux?

Subject: A Book Review of The Linux Command Line: A Complete Introduction

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

Face it. Linux may never succeed as a desktop operating system and may have to "settle" for being the king of the server and embedded device markets. But is that such a bad thing? Ironically, the power of a Windows machine is on the command-line, but unless you're a system admin or network guru, that doesn't even occur to you. And absolutely, the power of Linux is in the command-line shell. Why fight the nature of what Linux is? Instead of trying to avoid shell commands, embrace them. "That's where The Linux Command Line: A Complete Introduction" comes in.

I saw a post on the Xfce blog Tuesday or Wednesday about changing versioning scheme of the next Xfce release. I saved the URL knowing that I'd want to write about it. Just thank goodness that a storm blew in and caused my computer to shut off. Otherwise, I might have never seen the Update 2. Dirty rats.

Subject: Explainer: How can the US seize a Hong Kong site like Megaupload?

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

The Megaupload takedown, and the arrest of its key employees, might seem to vindicate late 1990s worries about the Internet and jurisdiction. Does putting a site on the 'Net, though it might be hosted anywhere in the world, subject you simultaneously to the laws of every country on earth? Why would Megaupload, based in Hong Kong, be subject to US copyright laws and to the Digital Millenium Copyright Act?

Subject: Kernel Log: Linux 3.3 goes into testing

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

Linux 3.3 can change the size of ext4 filesystems faster and supports ACPI 5.0, LPAE for ARM processors, Ethernet teaming and hot replace for software RAID. Meanwhile, Linux 3.1 has reached the end of the line, and the Linux Ate My RAM web site explains why Linux often appears to use all of the RAM.

Subject: Windows 8 Might Block Linux From Loading

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

Back in October 2011, the Free Software Foundation speculated on the possibility that Microsoft might be trying to block out other operating systems from loading within a computer, using a new concept known as the Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI). Microsoft showed it off a couple of months back, booting up Windows 8 in eight seconds. Linux users: Should you be concerned?

The purpose of this page is to introduce people new to linux to some programs I use for common tasks on my computer (sorry, no games). I include a list of programs to install beyond the default Ubuntu Linux distribution. Most of these notes would also apply to Debian GNU/linux, because Ubuntu is based on Debian.

Subject: The Perfect Server - CentOS 6.2 x86_64 With nginx ISPConfig 3

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

This tutorial shows how to prepare a CentOS 6.2 x86_64 server for the installation of ISPConfig 3, and how to install ISPConfig 3. ISPConfig 3 is a webhosting control panel that allows you to configure the following services through a web browser: nginx web server, Postfix mail server, MySQL, BIND nameserver, PureFTPd, SpamAssassin, ClamAV, Mailman, and many more. Since version 3.0.4, ISPConfig comes with full support for the nginx web server in addition to Apache; this tutorial covers the setup of a server that uses nginx, not Apache.

Subject: Deploying ChiliProject on Tomcat

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

I recently discovered ChiliProject, which is a fork of the Redmine project, and thought I’d take it for a spin. While Redmine project is very stable, it is a little slow to implement new functionality. That appears to be the primary reason for the ChiliProject fork. After browsing through their documentation and doing some google digging, I noticed that there is little to no information on how to deploy ChiliProject to Tomcat. I thought I’d take the time to try to fill the gap a little. It is my hope that this guide will serve as a reference for those of you who are working in primarily Tomcat-oriented shops, but are interested in test driving a high quality ruby-based app without having to setup the required apache+passenger (or nginx+passenger) infrastructure.

Subject: Some time-saving tips that every Linux user should know

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

Here is a selection of command-line tips that I’ve found useful when working on Linux. The emphasis is on somewhat less-known techniques that are generally important or useful to technical users. It’s a bit long, and users certainly don’t need to know all of them, but I’ve done my best to review that each item is worth reading in terms of projected time savings, if you use Linux heavily.

Subject: MPlayer2 Is Still Being Actively Developed

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

MPlayer2 -- a fork of the popular MPlayer open-source project that's added on several new features -- has been quiet for a few months but is still being actively developed. The discussion surrounding MPlayer2 was resurrected in the Phoronix Forums this past week. One Phoronix reader immediately jumped to say that "Mplayer2 is dead. Nothing new for 11 months now." and to also criticize the program for the lack of supporting the (outdated) MPEG-1 format.
