Subject: Anatomy of Security-Enhanced Linux (SELinux)

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

Linux has been described as one of the most secure operating systems available, but the National Security Agency (NSA) has taken Linux to the next level with the introduction of Security-Enhanced Linux (SELinux). SELinux takes the existing GNU/Linux operating system and extends it with kernel and user-space modifications to make it bullet-proof. If you're running a 2.6 kernel today, you might be surprised to know that you're using SELinux right now! This article explores the ideas behind SELinux and how it's implemented.

Summary: So, the OEMs make money from installing crapware onto PCs, and now Microsoft is making money removing it. Makes you realize why more and more people are buying Apple hardware.

Subject: DRM books need to disappear. NOW. (Or, my horrific experience with www.kalahari.com)

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

DRM turned a 10 minute purchase into a 2 and a half nightmare (and counting). I wanted to buy a book: I ended up in a journey which made it dead clear that in a sane world, there is absolutely no space for DRM-protected contents. The only real warning I have about this article is that it may make you feel sick.Read the story at [url=http://www.freesoftwaremagazine.com/articles/drm_books_need_disappear_now_or_my_horrific_experience_wwwkalaharicom]Free Software Magazine[/url].

Subject: Linux Desktop Space is no Place to Concede

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

The desktop is not going to disappear suddenly because there is a movement to include mobile devices. On the contrary, I see years in which a business will adopt a multitude of new devices, and the infrastructure needed to make them all work coherently.

Subject: LPI exam prep: Network client management

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

In this tutorial, the fifth in a series of seven tutorials covering intermediate network administration on Linux, David Mertz continues preparing you to take the Linux Professional Institute Intermediate Level Administration (LPIC-2) Exam 202. By following this tutorial, you will examine several protocols' centralized configuration of network settings on clients within a network. DHCP is widely used to establish basic handshaking to clients machines such as assigning IP addresses. At a higher level, NIS and (more often) LDAP are used for arbitrary shared information among machines on a network. This tutorial also discusses PAM, which is a flexible, networked, user authentication system.

Subject: How to dual-boot Ubuntu 12.04 and Windows 7

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

Now that you know what the overall goal is, how do you get from here to there? First, understand that if you have a computer running Windows 7, that Windows 7?s boot manager is responsible for making sure that the system boots. Installing Ubuntu on the same hard drive throws another boot manager into the mix, so the most important decision you are going to make about this, is which boot manager (Windows 7?s boot manager or Ubuntu’s) do you want to be responsible for primary boot operations?

Subject: Running OXID eShop Community Edition On Nginx on Debian Squeeze/Ubuntu 11.10

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

This tutorial shows how you can install and run OXID eShop Community Edition (version 4.5.9) on a Debian Squeeze or Ubuntu 11.10 system that has nginx installed instead of Apache (LEMP = Linux + nginx (pronounced "engine x") + MySQL + PHP). OXID eShop is a feature-rich ecommerce platform; I will use the Community Edition here which is licensed under an open source certified license (GPL v3.0). nginx is a HTTP server that uses much less resources than Apache and delivers pages a lot of faster, especially static files.

Subject: Mageia 2 and the default GNOME 3 desktop

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

Regarding the GNOME 3 desktop, I was hoping that the developers will at least make an attempt to customize the default desktop in a manner that makes it more user-friendly, just like that of Linux Deepin or Comice OS. But that is not what you will see if you install a Mageia 2 GNOME 3 desktop. Rather, you get the familiar but so user-unfriendly default GNOME 3 desktop. At least the wallpaper looks cool.

Have you ever found yourself scrolling endlessly around your phone's chronologically arranged photograph album -- called "Gallery" in Android -- looking for a photograph you've captured? If you can remember the specific place but not the date, then Scalado Album may be for you. I say "may be" because there are some downsides to using it over the stock "Gallery" app, which I'll get to.

Subject: and, nor or

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

Just read another "forget desktop Linux" piece by a writer trying to cover Free software on a sight ostensibly doing the same. This is exactly the sort of thing I wrote about in a recent blog entry, and it's sad to see it continue.First off, "world domination" is not the only metric, nor the most useful one in every case. We have tens of millions of users around the world and I'm sure they'd appreciate it if we didn't forget them. I am one of them, and I know I certainly feel that way. You may be as well.There's another aspect to that article: it suggests concentrating on mobile. Now .. where have I heard that before? Oh, right: everyone saying the desktop is dead, long live the web, we should focus all our efforts there.

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

MySQL provides support for thirteen different storage engines which act as varying table type handlers. Most people who use MySQL on a regular basis already know about the two most common storage engines, MyISAM and InnoDB. Most of the time, the default storage engine as defined by the store_engine option in the MySQL config file is typically MyISAM, and this is usually what most people go with.

IQnection Internet Services of Doylestown is redefining what online users can do with comments to articles on websites. For years, webmasters’ only choice was to enable flat or threaded comments. Regardless, the users’ comments would appear at the bottom of the last page of the article.But suppose the user was commenting on the second paragraph on the first page – or wanted to suggest a replacement for a deprecated line of code on the second page? Now there is a better way.
