Subject: Creating An NFS-Like Standalone Storage Server With GlusterFS On Ubuntu 11.10

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

This tutorial shows how to set up a standalone storage server on Ubuntu 11.10. Instead of NFS, I will use GlusterFS here. The client system will be able to access the storage as if it was a local filesystem. GlusterFS is a clustered file-system capable of scaling to several peta-bytes. It aggregates various storage bricks over Infiniband RDMA or TCP/IP interconnect into one large parallel network file system. Storage bricks can be made of any commodity hardware such as x86_64 servers with SATA-II RAID and Infiniband HBA.

Subject: Unity, GNOME3, Windows 8 and… jumping rats

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

Years 2011 and 2012 brought, and will bring, significant changes to all of these operating systems. Maybe not on the core level, but certainly on the user interface level. Unity, GNOME3, and now Windows 8 user interface styles are... I won’t say they are bad or wrong. I will say they are different. Many people wrote on the Internet about their rants, excitement, pros and contras. I myself did not stand aside from that battle. I compared them both on early stages and running in the same Ubuntu system. But the war is far from being finished. It has just started. There will be more to come when the new Windows 8 eventually hits the shelves of computer stores. This wave promises to be much stronger than the Unity and GNOME3 ones.

Subject: Read-Me: Google Reader Desktop Application With Unity Integration

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

Read-Me is a Google Reader desktop application that doesn't come with many features and instead, it tries to improve the readability. The application features an interesting interface with partially hidden javasacript buttons that show up on hover (they can be completely hidden by clicking the top left button) and it also incorporates some of the Google Reader web interface features.

Subject: Microsoft buys 800 patents from AOL covering search, ads, more

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

Yes, it's another huge sale of patents to an already huge IP behemoth. Microsoft is buying 800 of AOL's 1100 or so patents for a little over $1 billion, while also taking up a license for the remainder 300 AOL patents. In addition, Microsoft is buying all the patents owned by AOL subsidiary Netscape.[size=10]And Netscape's patents too? My gut tells me this is bad.. - Scott[/size]

Subject: Deepin: An Elegant Ubuntu-based Distro For The Chinese

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

The beauty of Linux lies in the fact that there is a distro for everyone. It doesn’t matter whether you are a geek, beginner, Apple fan, Windows fan, gamer or developer, there’s surely one distro for you. And yes, if you are a Chinese, there is this distro just for you, and it is elegant and well-polished. Deepin is a Ubuntu-based distro for the Chinese and it is heavily modified to include plenty of useful stuff and rid of less useless/seldom used packages. After booting up Deepin, the first impression is that it is beautiful. The custom theme used is bright, elegant and refreshing.

The other feature worth writing about, is ROSA Media Player, or ROMP. It is a media player with a feature you will not find in Totem or other media players in other Linux or BSD desktop distributions. It is actually a fork of SMPlayer and was first released in November 2011.

This guide explains how you can install and use KVM for creating and running virtual machines on a CentOS 6.2 server. I will show how to create image-based virtual machines and also virtual machines that use a logical volume (LVM). KVM is short for Kernel-based Virtual Machine and makes use of hardware virtualization, i.e., you need a CPU that supports hardware virtualization, e.g. Intel VT or AMD-V.

Subject: Rest In Peace, Jack Tramiel

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

The computing world lost a luminary this past Sunday. Jack Tramiel passed away at age 83. As founder and long-time head of Commodore Business Machines, he spearheaded computing "for the masses, not the classes." His Commodore VIC-20 and Commodore 64 systems were eminently hackable, to the point that full-speed emulators were available in the mid-1990's. And I have a personal story to tell about him.
