Subject: Creating Simple Virtual Hosts With mod_mysql_vhost On Lighttpd (Ubuntu 12.04)

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

This guide explains how you can use mod_mysql_vhost to create simple virtual hosts on a lighttpd web server on Ubuntu 12.04. With mod_mysql_vhost, lighttpd can read the vhost configuration from a MySQL database. Currently, you can store the domain and the document root in the MySQL database which results in very simple virtual hosts. If you need more directives for your vhosts, you'd have to configure them in the global section of lighttpd.conf, which means they'd be valid for all vhosts. Therefore, mod_mysql_vhost is ideal if your vhosts differ only in the domain and document root.

Subject: Linux Mint founder calls Nautilus 3.6 "a catastrophe"

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

Linux Mint founder and lead developer Clement "Clem" Lefebvre has provided further insight into his team's decision to create Nemo, a fork of GNOME's Nautilus file manager, and their plans for the new project. In a new blog post, Lefebvre says that he and his fellow developers chose to fork Nautilus because of the recent controversial design changes in version 3.6 of Nautilus, calling it "a catastrophe" as it "removes features we consider requirements".

Nokia did everything it could probably do with its latest line of phones announced this morning. Sure they're nice phones, but come September 12th when Apple announces the new iPhone, the headlines will be forgotten and nothing much will have changed in the mobile market. Apple and Android will dominate and Microsoft will continue to struggle.

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

The LinuxCon and CloudOpen 2012 conference held in San Diego last week were an epic success. Three days of keynotes and technical sessions from leaders in Linux, open source technologies and cloud computing sparked new conversations online in the days during and after the event. The information and ideas now circulating through the Linux community presented some new angles on old topics as well as a rare peek at the tools and technologies behind innovative companies and services.

As usual with these types of updates, KDE SC 4.9.1 improves the translations for many applications and fixes numerous bugs, some of which can cause KDE applications to crash.

Subject: The Cloud in 20 Years

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

When looking to the future of technology, it’s helpful to take a look at existing technologies and see if patterns emerge – and if lessons from today’s ecosystem can be applied to tomorrow and beyond. To that end, we think that there’s no better model for open cloud to study than Linux and its ecosystem. Not just the kernel, of course, though the kernel holds many fine lessons for any student of open development and community practices. But also, the larger ecosystem of open source and vendors (notably distributions) that have formed around the kernel.

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

Want your site to look good, even though you're not a designer? Try a design framework. For as long as I can remember, I've known how to use a pencil. I can write with it, and I even can draw with it—although in my case, saying I can draw is something of a sad exaggeration. I might know how to use a pencil and thoroughly understand its technology, but that technical knowledge doesn't mean I can draw something aesthetically pleasing.

openSUSE 12.2 has been released and as a new user of openSUSE (along with Kubuntu 12.10) I was looking forward to this release due to many reasons. I am not a developer or a system admin so my requirements with an OS is similar to the requirements of an average user. In this review I am looking at openSUSE from a casual PC user's point of view.

Subject: Color picking made simple

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

If I see a color on my computer screen that I'd like to use somewhere else, I want to know that color's hexadecimal code. Conversely, if I see a color's hex code, I want to know what that coded color looks like on-screen. Some time back, I wanted an application that does both those jobs simply in Linux. The best tool I found was gcolor2, described below. It's great for finding hex codes, but it doesn't display colors in a large enough 'swatch' to suit me. To do that job I wrote a simple script, also described below.

Subject: Gnome 3.8 features: Automatic Extension Updates

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

Automatic Extension Updates is the third proposal for 3.8 after Fallback and Videos. This feature was originally scheduled for 3.6 but it didn’t make it and they postponed it for 3.8. Till 3.8 is out, I guess we have to visit extensions.gnome.org/local and update manually. This is a big loss for 3.6, specially for the people that are heavily depended on extensions. The good news are that the infrastructure is completed and we can trigger it manually .
