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

While id Software was known for years as being a Linux-friendly game company with providing native ports of their in-house titles with support for the id Tech engines on Linux, this is no longer the case. John Carmack, the founder of id Software, has lost his commitment to seeing Linux support...

Subject: Installing And Using OpenVZ On CentOS 6.3

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

In this HowTo I will describe how to prepare a CentOS 6.3 server for OpenVZ. With OpenVZ you can create multiple Virtual Private Servers (VPS) on the same hardware, similar to Xen and the Linux Vserver project. OpenVZ is the open-source branch of Virtuozzo, a commercial virtualization solution used by many providers that offer virtual servers. The OpenVZ kernel patch is licensed under the GPL license, and the user-level tools are under the QPL license.

Subject: How to remove Zeitgeist in Ubuntu and why

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

In my desktop I use Xubuntu 12.04, and today i noticed that this distribution shippedd by default the Zeitgeist daemon, a thing that I’m not using at all and that is using resources of my system, so I’ve decided to remove this daemon totally from my system, please note that if you use Gnome 3 or Unity you could have some side effect, or perhaps the system will just become more faster, like the author of the article: Removing Zeitgeist Sped Up Unity .

There has been some debate lately about whether or not GNOME has gone off the deep end into an abyss. Whether or not that's true is debatable. What is certain though, is that on the Linux Planet the Linux desktop is not an endangered species with no shortage of viable, sustainable options.

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

Days ago benchmarks were shared from OpenBenchmarking.org that compared AHCI and IDE modes under Linux when it came to the resulting disk performance. There was a fair amount of interest generated out of that so some AHCI vs. IDE mode comparisons from a Serial ATA 3.0 SSD on an Ubuntu Linux host were benchmarked at Phoronix.

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

Bridge 2012.8 is out. It was requested a lot, and now it's here: GRUB 2 is the default bootloader in Bridge Linux 2012.8. There are a few notes about this - first, the bootloader install should detect all operating systems on the system, but it will change the root kernel parameter of Arch installs with a vanilla kernel. There are quite a few changes: fixed the /etc/hosts file; fixed the Xfce X respawn error; fixed some mkinitcpio issues; fixed the installer; added French and Turkish language support in the installer.

Subject: MATE vs Unity, GNOME 3: Open Source Desktop's Future?

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

MATE, the open-source desktop environment whose name no one is sure how to pronounce, is now nearly a year old. Many of us never thought it would make it this far, but the interface has held own against competitors like Unity and GNOME Shell. But does MATE have a long-term future in the fast-evolving world of desktop Linux? Here are some thoughts.

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

I have spend endless hours playing Nibbles (Gnome Snake Game) in the past, but this game now feels old. So I decided to write my own Snake Game for Gnome. I will use Clutter and JavaScript which is quite powerful combination, and I though to make some samples here, to enable people to write their own Gnome Apps.I’ll make some tutorials, in image/text processing, event driven programming, effects / animations / timelines, drawing with Cairo and Cogl and finally a simple Graph Scene.

Subject: Create a Bootable Live USB Thumb Drive or Rescue Drive Using UNetbootin

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

UNetbootin is a simple no frills tool, the type of program that used to populate the shelves at Egghead and other software stores back before the Internet changed everything. Using it to make a bootable USB drive from an ISO image is so easy even your grandmother could do it. Not only that, the application comes equipped to download and copy quite a few tools that might come in handy on a rescue drive.The first choice you make after opening UNetbootin is between “Distribution” and “Diskimage.” If you choose the first option, you then choose a distro and version from two drop down list boxes. If the distro you need is on the list, this saves you the chore of downloading the image yourself, it’s all done for you. In addition, this list includes the tools you need for a good rescue operation, such as Parted Magick, Dr. Web Antivirus and NTPasswd.

Wikipedia defines a cabal as a type of conspiracy where like-minded officials form an association to further the group’s shared cause. This is exactly what is happening: a group of software and hardware engineers have decided that GNU/Linux may be the road forward as Windows 8’s arrival looms. What is happening is inevitable: NOTHING lasts forever.
