Subject: Ever Higher Levels of Abstraction - Building the Future With Chef

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

If you have been in the industry for a decade or more, you probably have a pretty good idea of what being a Unix sysadmin is all about. Load the OS? Check. Configure local user accounts? Check. Install packages, compile some from scratch? Double check. Unix has not changed all that much, so it would be easy to assume that the job you were doing ten years ago would be the same job that you can do for the foreseeable future. But, that is the trap of dinosaurs my friend, the weather has already changed, and the days of dealing with bare metal are already moving fast behind us.

Subject: This week at LWN: Adobe ventures into open fonts

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

Adobe surprised many in open source circles with its August 2 release of Source Sans Pro, an open font made available under the standard SIL Open Font License (OFL). Adobe has not historically been an open source player (beyond its involvement with standard file formats like PDF or SVG), so Source Sans Pro is not only its first foray into open fonts, but may also herald an interest in adopting open source development methods. Designer Paul Hunt announced the font in a post on the Adobe typography blog. The font is available in six weights, with regular and italic versions for each. The first release covers an extended Latin character set, but according to the comments other writing systems are reportedly still to come. Downloads are hosted at SourceForge.net.

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

The unique selling point of Peppermint LINUX is the use of site specific browsers to bring the web to the desktop. Could the developers have done more to highlight the power of the SSB?

Subject: Installing Lighttpd With PHP5 (PHP-FPM) And MySQL Support On CentOS 6.3

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

Lighttpd is a secure, fast, standards-compliant web server designed for speed-critical environments. This tutorial shows how you can install Lighttpd on a Centos 6.3 server with PHP5 support (through PHP-FPM) and MySQL support. PHP-FPM (FastCGI Process Manager) is an alternative PHP FastCGI implementation with some additional features useful for sites of any size, especially busier sites. I use PHP-FPM in this tutorial instead of Lighttpd's spawn-fcgi.

Subject: Disney sitcom says open source is insecure

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

Shake it Up, a Disney sitcom that screens on The Disney Channel around the world, has slipped in an insult to open source software. The show, which tracks the activities of a group of aspiring dancers on a TV show called "Shake it Up, Chicago", appears to be aimed at tweens. We make that assertion based on the age of comments on its web site, the brightly-coloured costumes and stereotypical big-brush-strokes characters. In the offending episode one such character, a squeaky-voiced, glasses-and-argyle-jumper-wearing kid who is clearly meant to be a nerd, is asked to fix another character's stricken computer.

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

This tutorial explains the installation of a Samba fileserver on CentOS 6.3 and how to configure it to share files over the SMB protocol as well as how to add users. Samba is configured as a standalone server, not as a domain controller. In the resulting setup, every user has his own home directory accessible via the SMB protocol and all users have a shared directory with read-/write access.

Tale after tale of personal tragedy has popped up on Google+ and beyond, in fact, making it more clear than ever that the magnitude of this economic crisis has reached nothing short of epic proportions.

Subject: Using Unity Scopes and Lenses For A Better Movie Experience

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

If you are a movie buff, deciding on which movie to watch next often becomes a tedious task. You scrounge through multiple websites, reviews, and then search for that movie on Netflix or order it from your local library. Ubuntu users though, especially the ones who want everything at their fingertips, can make the most out of Unity’s Dash to find out more about the movies they’re planning to watch. By installing a couple of lenses, you can save yourself the trouble of visiting multiple websites just to know more about that movie.

Oracle is holding back test cases in the latest release of MySQL. It’s a move that has all the markings of the company’s continued efforts to further close up the open source software and alienate the MySQL developer community.The issue stems back to a recent discovery that the latest MySQL release has bug fixes but without a single one having any test cases associated with it.

In a new initiative, "LibreOffice HardHacks", the LibreOffice developers are being called on to take on the harder bugs in the LibreOffice code. Bjoern Michaelsen announced the programme, which is complementary to an earlier successful project "LibreOffice Easy Hacks", which set out to get the "low hanging fruit" bugs, the ones that would be easy to resolve and would bring new developers on board.
