Subject: What Follows a Fedora Linux Miracle ?

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

Though we're still a few month away from the May release date for Fedora 17 - aka 'The Beefy Miracle' - the Fedora community is now turning its attention to naming Fedora 18.

Subject: Bodhi Linux, the Beautiful Configurable Lightweight Linux

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

Bodhi Linux is fast-growing newcomer to the Linux distro scene. The first release was at the end of 2010, and it has attracted users and contributors at a fast pace. Do we need yet another Linux distro? Yes we do. KDE and GNOME both leaped off the deep end and left users in the lurch. KDE4 has matured and is all full of functionality and prettiness, but it's a heavyweight, and GNOME 3 is a radical change from GNOME 2, though considerably easier on system resources than KDE4. And there are all the other good choices for graphical environments such as Xfce, LXDE, Fluxbox (to me, KDE4 is Fluxbox with bales of special effects, as they share the same basic concepts for organizing workflow and desktop functionality), IceWM, Rox, AfterStep, Ratpoison, FVWM, and many more. So what value does Bodhi add? Four words: Enlightenment, minimalism, and user choice.

Pacman is the standard package manager for all Arch-based systems. While its usage is actually fairly simple, it may initially throw off users who are used to the APT or RPM family of packaging tools.

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

Diversity is everything. A lack of diversity leads to a failure of imagination. I want to see Linux and FOSS populated by people all over the world, women, men, children, old people, people of all races and cultures. The more the better! It's not just software - whoever controls technology controls society.

Subject: Open Source: Using Mageia 1 for Six Months Now

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

Back in the Fall of 2011, September 4th to be exact, I decided it was time to migrate from the sinking ship of Mandriva to the new Mageia distribution which is based on the best of Mandriva while leaving the chaff of Mandriva behind. It is now six months later and I am ready to report on my experience so far. To sum up this article in a sentence, “Mageia works and works well.” If you just want the summary, that is it, you can stop reading here. If you want more, read on. I will start with what I haven’t liked since that is my shorter list.

Subject: Using ATA Over Ethernet (AoE) On Debian Squeeze (Initiator And Target)

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

This guide explains how you can set up an AoE target and an AoE initiator (client), both running Debian Squeeze. AoE stands for "ATA over Ethernet" and is a storage area network (SAN) protocol which allows AoE initiators to use storage devices on the (remote) AoE target using normal ethernet cabling. "Remote" in this case means "inside the same LAN" because AoE is not routable outside a LAN (this is a major difference compared to iSCSI). To the AoE initiator, the remote storage looks like a normal, locally-attached hard drive.
