Subject: How to Handle And Configure Firewall In Linux

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

If you are using, or planning to use Linux, a good incentive is the relative security that is implemented by default. Linux systems are insensitive to a good majority of Windows and Mac OS viruses, and the GNU project in itself assures the authenticity of the software. However, every (paranoid) geek knows that there is no such thing as a completely protected system. Today, we will show you how to beef up your Linux security by making a few changes to your Firewall settings.

Subject: Authenticating in PHP using SSH

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

For a good couple of years now I've wondered if there was a way to write an authentication system in PHP that utilized SSH instead of the widely-breakable database and flatfile methods. After doing some research I found its possible after installing a PHP extension. This guide will detail the methods used to do this, with the intent of hopefully having this a more versatile option.

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

The Council of Economy, Innovation and Science of the Government of Andalucía has announced the release of Guadalinex 8, an Ubuntu-based, easy-to-use, desktop Linux distribution developed to facilitate the access to information technology for all citizens. With a 40% improvement in boot speed and a complete redesign of the default desktop, the distribution incorporates the latest free software technologies, such as GNOME Shell, which provides for a more productive working environment while allowing high levels of customisation thanks to a multitude of extensions downloadable from the Internet. Most applications included in the default install have been upgraded to newer versions.

Subject: Anonymous operating system prompts security warnings

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

More than 26,000 people have downloaded an operating system which members of the Anonymous hacker group claim to have created. The software is based on a version of the open-source operating system Linux and comes outfitted with lots of website sniffing and security tools. The "official" Anonymous group has distanced itself from the software. In a widely circulated tweet, AnonOps claimed the operating system was riddled with viruses.

Subject: Writing native Android applications with Javascript? Not yet.

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

The number of people using Linux (and I mean Linux the kernel) and free software in general has exploded in the last 2 years thanks to Android and Google. Even if you want to discard phones and only count the tablets (which are starting to get very close to laptops in terms of what you can do with them), the number of new users is huge. And yet, we are all hostage of a choice -- a bad choice, in my humble opinion -- that Google made: Java.

Subject: C development on Linux - Coding style and recommendations - IX.

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

You may wonder what is meant by the title. Code is code, right? It's important to be bug-free and that's that, what else? Development is more than writing code and testing/debugging it. Imagine you have to read someone else's work, and I suppose you already done that, and all the variables are named foo, bar, baz, var, etc. And the code isn't commented nor documented. You will probably feel the sudden urge to invoke unknown gods, then go to the local pub and drown your sorrows.

"The whole thing just shows how hypocritical and frankly more than a little nuts the Linux community is," Slashdot blogger hairyfeet opined. "What is the one argument that gets trotted out any time anybody points out every other major OS on the planet has a driver ABI, like BSD, Solaris, OSX, OS/2, and Windows? Why, it's 'ZOMG people might make binary blobs! We can't have that, better to make a lousy product whose drivers break often, ZOMG!'"

Subject: Is Linux About to Take Off on Tablets?

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

At this point, there’s no denying that Linux — despite high hopes early-on — is a late-entry to the world of tablets. But that doesn’t mean open-source enthusiasts have written off this segment of the hardware market. On the contrary, a number of initiatives to make Linux a viable choice for tablet users are in rapid development.

Subject: Ubuntu: Really More Popular Than Red Hat Enterprise Linux?

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

Mid-March is a time ripe for overhauling traditional power structures — or it was, at least, in ancient Rome. But if former Canonical CEO Mark Shuttleworth is correct in his claim this week that Ubuntu is overtaking Red Hat in the world of Linux servers, we may be in the midst of a major shake-up in the open-source hierarchy as well. Is Shuttleworth right, or will this trend prove no more enduring than Brutus‘ brief reign after he murdered Caesar? Here are some thoughts.

Subject: Virtual Hosting With Proftpd And MySQL (Incl. Quota) For Arch Linux

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

This document describes how to install a Proftpd server that uses virtual users from a MySQL database instead of real system users. This is much more performant and allows to have thousands of ftp users on a single machine. In addition to that I will show the use of quota with this setup. This tutorial is based on Arch Linux.
