  • Enterprise Linux Today: Novell Takes Cross-Platform Support to the Desktop (Sep 19, 2001, 21:01)
    Novell, Inc. today announced availability of the Novell Native File Access Pack, which gives users of Windows, Macintosh, UNIX and Linux desktop operating systems access to storage on Novell NetWare servers without any Novell software on their workstations.

  • NewsForge: Whither FSF? Group faces more challenges than ever (Sep 19, 2001, 20:45)
    Commentary from Linus Torvalds, Eric Raymond, Bradley Kuhn and others on the future of the FSF: "Eric Raymond, the Open Source evangelist, isn't that optimistic about FSF's future, saying, 'Barring extraordinary leadership and a major change of direction (which I don't rule out; it never pays to underestimate RMS's intelligence) I think the FSF looks likely to self-destruct before long.'"

  • Mandrake Linux 8.1 Release Candidate Is Available (Sep 19, 2001, 18:01)
    "MandrakeSoft is happy to announce the availability of Mandrake Linux 8.1 Release Candidate. There have been many improvements since the Beta 1 thanks to the precious help of the Open Source community. Still, room remains for your contribution. This Release Candidate is the last opportunity to test and contribute to the development of Mandrake Linux 8.1."

  • ZDNet UK: Microsoft tries to cut Windows off from Unix servers (Sep 19, 2001, 17:06)
    "Fear of Linux and an attempt to use its desktop muscle to protect Windows server sales may be behind Microsoft's apparently confused strategy over the CIFS protocol, according to Jeremy Allison, co-author of the widely used Samba open-source code, which uses the protocol to link Windows clients to Unix and Linux servers."

  • The Register: IBM maps out database sales campaign [Interview with IBM Data Management Sales VP] (Sep 19, 2001, 16:06)
    "We see an awful lot of interest in Linux across all sizes of business. In China for example I would say that at least 50% of our DB2 installations are on Linux. In Europe I could not name one major manufacturer that does not have a Linux project or live installation. Linux is huge. To be honest though, it's not quite so popular in the US. I don't know why. But for some reason the US seems to be more reluctant to go with Linux."

  • KDE.News: Noatun-Interview with KDE Developer Charles Samuels (Sep 19, 2001, 15:05)
    "Klaus Stärk has submitted an interview he recently conducted with Charles Samuels about Noatun. Noatun is KDE's powerful multimedia (video/audio) player. Klaus tells us that Noatun will be the "Application of the Month October 2001" on the German KDE-webpage, so the interview will be translated into German at that time."

  • Mandrake Linux Security Update Advisory: apache update (Sep 19, 2001, 05:37)
    "A problem exists with all Apache servers prior to version 1.3.19. The vulnerablity could allow directory indexing and path discovery on the vulnerable servers with a custom crafted request consisting of a long path name created artificially by using numerous slashes. This can cause modules to misbehave and return a listing of the directory contents by avoiding the error page."
