Subject: Four Lightweight Distros Compared

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

In the past year I've reviewed four lightweight Linuxes for OS News: VectorLinux, Puppy Linux, Lubuntu, and Damn Small Linux. This article compares the four distributions. I invite your comments in response: what are your own experiences with these and competing lightweight distros?

Subject: Racing to remove the last Nix

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

This post was prompted by a discussion on ScientificLinuxForum. Since the subject of this post diverts significantly from the original discussion I’ve placed it here instead. The thread was initially about the release of RHEL 6.3, but discussions there have a tendency to wander, particularly since many are worried we are in the last days of free computing with the advent of UEFI lock-down, DRM-Everything and new laws which prevent the digital equivalent of changing your own oil, but this post just doesn’t belong in the thread and may be of interest to a more general audience.

Subject: Netrunner 4.2: It's an Everything but the Kitchen Sink Kind of Distro (Review)

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

Netrunner 4.2 has turned out to be the kind of distro I love and hate at the same time. While syncronization with services such as Google and Facebook is a welcome addition to KDE, I can't stand the fact that Netrunner chooses to include almost every piece of imaginable software. This makes it confusing for me; I can only imagine how confusing it would prove to be to a new Linux user, which this distro seems to be aimed at.

It's been an interesting week for NVIDIA with Torvalds speaking quite negatively of NVIDIA, NVIDIA PR's fluffy response, and their recent loss of a huge order due to not having an open-source driver / MIPS port. However, NVIDIA Linux engineers are hoping to be better Linux patrons...

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

To be honest, I was slightly scared by the previous not-so-good experience of a Mageia upgrade described by Gene on his ERACC blog. The second option for me would be to make a fresh install, which I could always revert to. I had so little to loose that the decision was easily made.

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

Editing videos is a job that is usually done by tech savvy people with patience and special knowledge. I am not one of them really.I never succeeded in editing videos using well known available on Linux tools, mainly because I didn’t have the patience to read help files and see what is going on and how things are done.With LiVES is maybe the first time I find myself doing pro-stuff in a pretty clear, simple and easy to use way.

Subject: Former Federal Judge Calls US Prosecution Of Megaupload 'Really Outrageous'

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

To hear folks in Hollywood talk about it, the US's indictment and prosecution of Megaupload are a done deal. Without any actual trial, people have decided that the company is clearly 100% evil and guilty. Yet, as we keep noting, the details of the indictment and prosecution keep turning up significant errors on the part of the US, as well as questions about the legality of what the US did. And plenty of people who really understand this stuff deeply are speaking out in agreement. The latest is a former federal judge, Abraham David Sofaer, who found the whole situation so troubling that he's helping the EFF -- for free -- with its efforts to get Megaupload users' data back.

Subject: Using mod_spdy With Apache2 On Fedora 17

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

SPDY (pronounced "SPeeDY") is a new networking protocol whose goal is to speed up the web. It is Google's alternative to the HTTP protocol and a candidate for HTTP/2.0. SPDY augments HTTP with several speed-related features such as stream multiplexing and header compression. To use SPDY, you need a web server and a browser (like Google Chrome and upcoming versions of Firefox) that both support SPDY. mod_spdy is an open-source Apache module that adds support for the SPDY protocol to the Apache HTTPD server. This tutorial explains how to use mod_spdy with Apache2 on Fedora 17.
