Subject: How To Set Up An IPS (Intrusion Prevention System) On Fedora 17

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

Vuurmuur is a linux firewall manager. It takes a human readable rule syntax and turns it into the proper iptables commands. It supports logviewing, traffic shaping, connection killing and a lot of other features. Suricata is a relatively new network IDS/IPS. It's multithreaded for performance, supports IDS and IPS modes, can extract files from HTTP streams and has a lot of other features. Fedora 17 includes both Vuurmuur and Suricata in its repository. In this howto I'll describe how to get a functional IPS using only Fedora packages.

The Free Software Foundation (FSF) has awarded its "Respects Your Freedom" (RYF) hardware certification to the LulzBot AO-100 3D printer made by Aleph Objects. This makes the LulzBot AO-100 the first device to receive the certification since the RYF programme's launch.

It is in the nature of things that ideas which upset the status quo or challenge the prevailing orthodoxies are watered down to make them more acceptable, which is why the free software movement is an essential part of the landscape

Herbert Lom, the actor who played the twitchy Chief Inspector Dreyfuss in the old Pink Panther movies, recently passed away. Linux fans can surely feel some sympathy with Lom's character. We may not have Clouseau to grate on our nerves here in the Linux community, but we certainly have something with the potential to be equally annoying: Windows 8 Secure Boot.

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

The US Patent and Trademarks Office (USPTO) has granted a patent to US IP licensing company Intellectual Ventures on a process designed to prevent illegal copying via 3D printers and other rapid manufacturing techniques. Patent number 8,286,236 refers to a manufacturing control system for the layered creation of objects, for instance via CAD construction files. The patented technology uses a digital watermark verification mechanism to ensure, for example, that a printer will only reproduce an object if the user is entitled to do so.

In case you haven’t thought about it lately, it’s a fair bet that everything in your life today depends to some greater or lesser extent (usually the former) on the Internet and the Web.  And in case you’ve never thought about it at all, what makes those vital services possible has less to do with servers and fiber optics than it does with protocols and other standards.

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

Internet Relay Chat (IRC) is an essential way of engaging with the Linux community. Being able to tap into the wealth of knowledge of individuals logged into IRC enables users to engage directly with developers and other users of distributions and applications. IRC is not just limited to obtaining and giving technical support to others; it can be used for many other activities.

The latest release of Zenwalk Linux, version 7.2, is now available and focuses on further improving the Slackware-based distribution's overall performance, as well as updating its underlying components.

Interesting dynamic here. When a CIO decided to move his company to the cloud, the users pushed back. When he got executive buy-in from the CFO, things went much more smoothly and users grew to like the change eventually.

Subject: Zenwalk 7.2 Screenshot Tour

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

After several months of rescheduling we think it's time to let this new jet fly. Zenwalk 7.2 is loyal to its design - providing 1 application per task, everything needed to work, play, code and create, in a single 700 MB CD image, through a 10 minutes automatic install process on any recent computer. Zenwalk 7.2 runs on kernel 3.4.8 with BFS scheduler. The Zenwalk desktop is based on the Xfce 4.10, GTK+ 2.24.10 and 3.4.4, with unique look and feel and perfect ergonomic integration of the application set - LibreOffice 3.6.2, Firefox and Thunderbird 15.0.1, GIMP 2.8.2 and much more. The Netpkg package manager has been improved with multiple mirrors support and better performance.
