  • Linux Journal: Sendmail Setup for Your Home Network (Apr 19, 2001, 22:13)
    "In this article we will address a basic installation procedure (sort of a recipe for a quick set up of your mail server) for the average user. Assuming the system is a home or small company network with a Linux machine running Sendmail as the mail server, Sendmail's functions will be to receive mail messages from machines on the internal network, deliver local messages to their respective users and deliver to the Internet messages for external destinations. Additionally, the server will receive mail from the Internet."

  • ZDNet eWeek: GNOME, KDE interfaces make Linux palatable (Apr 19, 2001, 18:52)
    eWeek has taken on the task of comparing GNOME and KDE, calling KDE the more smooth and polished of the two. The reviewer's taken the time to qualify a few important differences that make a difference in his assessment, and he recommends GNOME fans wait on Ximian's release of GNOME 1.4.

Thanks to the magic of reader feedback, he's back today with a report on CheckInstall, a tiny but powerful tool that could put us back in touch with the tarball in the best way possible

  • Newsforge: TuxBox: Rising from Indrema's ashes (Apr 19, 2001, 07:42)
    Newsforge reports with great earnestness and no skepticism about the TuxBox project, a volunteer effort to keep the Indrema technology alive. Good intentions aside, we're not too optimistic about projects headed by high schoolers in rural Minnesota who promise to have a game console and several games available by this fall -- without having any access yet to Indrema code.
