Infrastructure Linux News for Nov 26, 2000

  • BSD Today: Web browsing with Konqueror (2000-11-26 19:00:49)
    "A key component of the K Desktop Environment 2 (KDE 2) is the Konqueror browser. Not only can Konqueror browse both your file system and the web, it can do both at the same time in the same window. I have been using Konqueror as my main web browser for a week now and this article relates my experiences. Since I didn't use Konqueror as a file explorer I won't talk about that in this review."

  • PaulaGordon.com: Free Software (RealAudio Interview with Larry Wall) (2000-11-26 18:49:33)
    "A truly great computer programmer is lazy, impatient and full of hubris, says Larry Wall. Laziness drives one to work very hard to avoid future work for a future self. Impatience has the same endgame. And hubris is required for the newest Promethean fire -- inventing computer languages."

  • MacWeek.com: Is Darwin getting due respect? (2000-11-26 18:00:42)
    "The BSDs (of which OpenBSD fits my needs best), for example, run a distant second [to Linux] in the open source OS mind share category. However, the one open source operating system that hasn't gotten any coverage over the past week, despite having hit a major milestone, is Darwin."

  • AllLinuxDevices: Slangsoft Joins Embedded Linux Consortium (2000-11-26 17:22:19)
    "Scores of embedded device makers and developers have adopted Linux as their operating system of choice for delivering the full-system functionality that consumers have come to expect and demand from embedded devices. As an active member of the ELC, Slangsoft will work to accelerate this trend by ensuring the availability of fast, predictive text input in every language within the User Interface of any Embedded Linux platform."

  • Washington Post: Cheap Street Is Place to Buy That New PC (2000-11-26 17:00:27)
    "He added that a speed of around 400 to 600 megahertz would be a "pretty healthy" range for most shoppers to look for in a new computer--easy advice to follow, as the slowest PCs now ship with 600-MHz processors. (Macs run at slower clock speeds but generally deliver comparable performance.) Goodrum, a Linux user, runs a machine he built himself that uses just a 200-MHz processor."

  • Canada Computes: Redhat Column Part 2: Update (2000-11-26 15:00:18)
    "So, the install was easy, but that's all for naught if the distribution is garbage. Unless you've been hiding under a rock or don't read sites like Slashdot, the press, in my opinion, has been less than stellar and even wildly inaccurate about Redhat 7."

  • CNET: SuSE Linux 7.0 Professional (2000-11-26 14:00:41)
    "You'll have to look far and wide to find a better distribution than SuSE 7.0 Professional if you're planning to set up a Linux server or network or intend to build a high-capacity, database-driven client/server system. SuSE's huge number of applications and easy network configuration help to make a network administrator's job less arduous, and its database-friendly architecture is a definite boon for database administrators."

  • Kernel Cousin Debian #12 By Martin Michlmayr, Steve Robbins, and Zack Brown (2000-11-26 13:00:46)
    Highlights from the Debian development mailing lists for the previous week.

  • zez.org: Version Control management with CVS - Part 2 (2000-11-26 12:00:20)
    "Committing, the second of the two widely used CVS commands (the first is updating ), takes care of sending all your local changes to the CVS repository. To be able to commit your changes you need write access to the CVS repository, so any anonymous logins won't work."
