Subject: PostgresSQL 9.2 works faster and smarter

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

The new release of PostgreSQL, version 9.2, has arrived, four months after the appearance of the first beta version. The new release includes read and write performance boosts, index-only scanning, new web-oriented functionality, and support for range data types. As shown in the beta, the new version promises to be much faster than its predecessor primarily thanks to index-only scanning, which allows searches to avoid reading the underlying tables and instead search only indexes. This new feature is used automatically, though there are caveats as to how effective it can be all situations, but where the required data is already indexed, for example in "big data" scenarios, the boost in performance can be huge.

"A while back I wrote a review on Windows 8, but when writing a review they tend to be more based on first impressions rather than how a system actually grows on you," wrote Ken Quirk, a committed Linux fan and Ubuntu user. "So, in the interest of fairness I have decided to give Windows 8 a fair crack of the whip."

Subject: Another way to re-run the previous command

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

After running a command in the terminal, you can re-call it by simply hitting the up arrow button. Another way to recall the previous command you can use is to type the double exclamation marks ("!!"). In other words, when you run the double exclamation marks in the terminal, the previous command will be executed. This tip can be quite handy when you want to re-run the previous command as root.

Subject: NVIDIA Announces New Legacy Linux Support

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

NVIDIA has announced today the graphics cards that are no longer supported by their mainline Linux graphics driver going forward but will be moved to a new 304.xx Linux legacy driver branch. The information that NVIDIA officially posted today is basically the same as what I wrote two weeks back in NVIDIA To Discontinue Linux Support For Some GPUs. With the NVIDIA 304.xx proprietary driver series that they're currently on, they will be ending support for GeForce 6 "NV4x" and GeForce 7 "G7x" graphics processors.

The reverse-engineered open-source Nouveau driver has received its own FUC microcode implementation that frees it from having to use the binary microcode produced by the proprietary NVIDIA Linux graphics driver for the GeForce 600 "Kepler" graphics processors, but there's still problems ahead in supporting this latest-generation hardware.

Subject: Making Lists in Scribus

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

You might as well know from the start: Making bulleted or numbered lists in Scribus isn't as easy as in the average word processor. In fact, compared to LibreOffice, Scribus as installed is downright primitive in the way it handles lists. You can pull a script off the Internet to automate to an extent, but chances are you'll have to tweak it before it does exactly what you want.
