Subject: Top Open Source Learning Management Systems

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

Open source Learning Management Systems have become extremely popular in recent years, but what does open source mean? Open Source technology is technology where the source code is “open”, that is, the code is available to the public and free to be modified. Improvements can be made by developers and it can be spread or sold to the wider community. So, why should an organization choose an open source Learning Management System as opposed to a homegrown or proprietary Learning Management System?

Subject: GNOME 3 update: 'Connect to Server' lives in GNOME 3.5/3.6, I rant about features being moved and removed, and I fix my GNOME 3.4 problem in Debian Wheezy

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

In my test of the Fedora 18 Alpha release, I was left thinking the "connect to server" feature in the Nautilus file manager disappeared in versions 3.5.x and 3.6.x of the GNOME desktop environment. Thanks to readers, I learned that "connect to server" has moved to a separate application that you call from the shell with the not-so-friendly name "Nautilus-connect-server."

Subject: US patent chief to software patent critics: -- Give it a rest already --

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

Says explosion of smartphone patent litigation is "natural and reasonable." David Kappos, the head of the United States Patent and Trademark Office, offered a strong defense of software patents in a Tuesday address at the Center for American Progress. Kappos touted several provisions of the America Invents Act (AIA), which he argued would allow the patent office to weed out low-quality software and business method patents. Addressing those who claim the patent system is broken, Kappos said, "Give it a rest already. Give the AIA a chance to work. Give it a chance to even get started."

Subject: Review: Ubuntu 12.10 Quantal Quetzal a mix of promise, pain

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

Standard releases aren't terribly different from the bi-annual LTS products, though they tend to be slightly less conservative in code offerings. The Ubuntu development community lets off the brakes a little and sticks some shiny back in.Ubuntu 12.10 is no exception, so make no mistake—there's some shiny goodness in this release. We'll get into what makes this a decent desktop and even more decent server release. But there's a little tarnish mixed in, too, and that makes Ubuntu 12.10 less special than previous editions.

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

A previously unknown rootkit is infecting Linux web servers and injecting malicious code into web pages served by infected servers. The rootkit was discovered by a user of security mailing list Full Disclosure, who has posted his observations, including the suspicious kernel module, to the mailing list. The malware adds an iframe to every web page served by the infected system via the nginx proxy – including error pages.

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

If you happen to administer one or more OpenLDAP servers, you know that they can be a challenge to work with. Working with LDAP itself can be a bit tricky; to that end, many opt to go the phpLDAPadmin route (which is an amazing tool for individual servers). There’s one particular piece of software that does an outstanding job of managing multiple LDAP servers: Apache Directory Studio.

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

In most cases, when a machine crashes or fails, we lose whatever we had loaded into memory, which for some applications can result in quite a bit of time and effort to recover when the system comes back online. At LinuxCon Europe, Maciej Maciejewski, Senior Software Engineer at Intel, talked about how persistent memory can be used to retain its contents after a power failure.
