Subject: SliTaz 4.0: light and stable

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

SliTaz 4.0 was released in stable version on the 10th of April 2012. The ISO image grew in size a little bit since last time, but remained absolutely tiny - only 35 Mb. It means that you can download and burn it to your disk in no time.

Subject: Patent Wars, a new kind of competition

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

Patents were developed to create more incentives for people to invest time and money in research and development, which in turn would advance technology. However, some argue the current patent wars are limiting innovation as more and more money is spent on patent lawsuits instead of technological advancement.

Subject: Many FSF Priority Projects Still Not Progressing

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

Last October I wrote about the sad state of the Free Software Foundation's high priority projects... Most of the projects are basically not going anywhere. Many of them at the time were not really advancing in their goals, haven't had releases in a while, or coding hasn't even started. It's been more than a half-year and still there's no significant work towards clearing many of projects from the FSF list...

Subject: Striping Across Four Storage Nodes With GlusterFS 3.2.x On Ubuntu 11.10

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

This tutorial shows how to do data striping across four single storage servers (running Ubuntu 11.10) with GlusterFS. The client system (Ubuntu 11.10 as well) 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: How to run Linux Mint Debian Cinnamon in VirtualBox

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

One edition of Linux Mint Debian released a few days ago, features two desktop environments – MATE and Cinnamon. The former is a fork of GNOME 2, while the later is an attempt to bring sanity to GNOME 3, to make it look like something designed for use on desktop computers. However, if you attempt to run it on older computers, those without 3D acceleration, or in a virtual environment using VirtualBox, you will very likely get this error message shown in the screen shot below.
