  • Selling Freedomware: It’s about what THEY want.
    the answers to the question what do people want My conclusion is they don t want Linux and they don t want freedomware It s hardly even gonna be in their vocabulary let alone one of their distinct needs or desires What they might want however is a computer that doesn t crash all the time getting rid of viruses and spyware having a nicer interface an easier to use tools being productive and more efficient those sorts of things But I don t presume I know all of their wants and needs though so it should be an ongoing search for answers We should listen before we give a yet another software freedom or linux is sooo secure speech This is where I come to the gist of my point There have already been people who have talked about GNU Linux being free actually being one of the reasons people avoid it thinking it probably isn t very valuable if you don t have to pay anything for it Others have pointed out that Windows is free so advertising Linux as a free alternative is advertising a non advantage I am beginning to believe that we should completely stop advertising Freedomware and GNU Linux as free of cost and perhaps even do a total reversal find a way to CHARGE for it without actually charging directly for software albeit some opportunistic souls are doing it on ebay and successfully so I might add to the disgust of some in our community Put a price tag on the Freedomware experience Brand it in various interesting ways and market it in such a way for it to appear as a clear answer to the questions they actually ARE asking the things that they actually ARE looking for Then once they buy into it sell them the freedom message Once they are your satisfied customers feeling like they got a great deal and something really valuable and they did then they might be more receptive to your freedom message Throw it in as a bonus you can t say no to By the way this software is yours now you can share it hire someone to make it better and use it without intrusion which is thanks to this avantguarde philosophy spearheaded by the Free Software Foundation Then just give them a link and don t bother them again You might find that many of these customers could also become converts to your precious GNU philosophy So the trick is in making yourself actually seem like you care less about the whole thing and more about the satisfaction of your client less like you re all too eager to convert him regardless of how far you need to go and more like you re simply here to serve Save your eagerness and passion for later when you might get a chance to help them on a support forum or talk to them about the philosophy should they very positively respond to your

  • Now do I have 3D-Acceleration or not?
    the RadeonHD driver offers 3D for R500 cards but since my X1250 is a R650 or so I didn t pay much attention yet to this As a quick test I fired up Celestia which btw is a really cool program To my disappointment it was still a bit slow Now I see it as a fact that my parents didn t raise a stupid guy so I used all my wit and had another look at glxinfo which showed me that as renderer in fact not my GPU is used but Mesa which of course explains the speed issue as it s still software rendering Some googling revealed that the RadeonHD driver does in fact support fast 3D for some cards I didn t check though if mine is in that list of cards I ll just try it out tonight but not at the same time as fast 2D Now it seems all I have to do to make the switch from accelerated 2D to accelerated 3D is adding Option DRI to my driver section in the X configuration and then in theory I should be able to enjoy Celestia and other 3D stuff with much sweeter speed Well I m going to try that out tonight and will keep you posted on this What I have learned from this is Direct Rendering Yes alone is no fool proof indication that you actually have 3D acceleration Also look at the line showing the actual renderer to make sure This may only apply to users using RadeonHD as it s the first time I ve run into this phenomena but might be a good idea in general Article by reptiler Community Blogs Tech Stack Solutions Tech Stack Solutions is my company that provides Unix support Sign up or simply

  • Debunking the Debunked WINE Myths
    bugs are not in the way Wine handles PE i e Win32 s executable format programs Bugs and performance issues alike come from the implementation of the Windows API and this is shared anyway So bugs come from the implementation of the Windows API and Winelib is supposed to be a reimplementation of the Windows API If the reimplementation is exact then there should be no issues between running an application on Windows or WINE But wait there are issues millions of issues Yet those issues are only with running those applications on WINE This reminds me of all the third party developers complaining about their programs have memory leaks because of the poor coding on Microsoft s end It s never your fault its always someone else That is the wrong attitude to have There are many issues in both WINE and Winelib that needs to be addressed before this myth can be truly proven wrong Myth 6 Wine will always be playing catch up to Windows and can t possibly succeed at running new applications Quote The architecture of Wine makes adding new APIs or DLLs fairly easy Wine developers rapidly add functions as needed even applications requiring the latest functionality are usually reported working within a few months of release Examples of this include Office XP and Max Payne a DirectX 8 0 game both of which were fairly new as of this writing 5 2002 In addition Wine supports using native DLLs when the built in versions don t function properly In many cases it s possible to use native DLL versions to gain access to 100 of the functions an application requires This myth wasn t even answered or rebutted properly This is not a myth and is in fact a truth because the WINE developers doesn t matter how many they have will always have to catch up to Microsoft because they don t know what Microsoft will put in Windows until it s released And the little bit about the native DLLs You can only use them IF you own a copy of Windows It is illegal to download Windows DLLs without owning a copy of the original or original installation medium So if you do not own a copy of Windows you can not by law use the original DLLs Myth 7 Because Wine only implements a small percentage of the Windows APIs it s always going to suck Quote APIs are like a library it s always nice to have as many books on the shelves as possible but in reality a few select books are referenced over and over again Most applications are written to the lowest common denominator in order to have the widest audience possible Windows XP support is simply not that important most applications only require Windows 95 or Windows 98 Currently Wine supports over 90 of the calls found in popular Windows specifications such as ECMA 234 and Open32 Wine is still adding Win32 APIs but a lot of the work right now involves fixing the existing functions and making architecture changes Most applications being developed right now REQUIRE Windows XP and will not run on anything older than 2000 And with Vista being here with its stricter hardware requirements and specialized drivers it is going to be even harder to get applications to work properly Myth 8 Wine is only for Windows 3 1 Wine will never support Win64 Quote Wine started back in the days when Windows 95 did not exist yet And although Windows NT and thus the Win32 API already existed it only supported Windows 3 1 applications Anyway almost no one used Windows NT in that time anyway But these days are long gone Since August 2005 Wine advertises its version as Windows 2000 and for several years before this it was Windows 98 so really Win32 is the primary thing Wine supports Support for Windows 3 1 applications is still around of course as is some support for DOS applications Win64 support would allow Wine to run native Windows 64 bit executables and as of February 2006 Wine does not yet have this support That s okay since there are very few commercially available Win64 applications One exception Unreal Tournament 2004 is available in a native Linux 64 bit version so nobody except maybe a Wine hacker should want to run the Windows version anyway This doesn t mean that Wine will not work on 64 bit systems It does See this entry in the Wine Wiki for more info This one is true The number of native WindowsXP64 titles are no where near the number of 32bit applications available Once the big push is made to get everyone to switch to 64bit operating systems is when we will start to see development for 64bit usage in WINE Myth 9 Wine is for Linux only Quote This is just plain incorrect Okay as of now Wine does not run on many platforms just Linux FreeBSD and Solaris Still this is not Linux only It is true too that most developers work on Linux So you run a higher risk of having a specific release of Wine not compile work on a non Linux platform But this is usually fixed in the next release Also Wine has been known to be missing some important functionality on non Linux e g good multi threading As far as I know these problems are now solved and Wine works just as well on any of the three platforms mentioned above There also is a Win32 compatibility project for OS 2 Odin which makes use of Wine code This is also true Hell they have WINE for Windows Myth 10 Wine is for Intel x86 only Quote Well it is true that Wine only runs on Intel s x86 processors Unfortunately it will also require quite a lot of work before it runs on other processor architectures But what do we mean by running on

  • POSIX Capabilities Vs. Set-UID
    sockets which is required for ping Currently ping comes along with the SUID bit set which turn as user running ping into root so to speak If a tool that is SUID root has a security problem it may be used to elevate the user to root permissions As capabilities are capable to replace the SUID bit by setting only the necessary capabilities this risk disappears If a tool has a security problem the user may end up with slightly more permissions than before like opening raw sockets to stay with our example but he won t be effectively root That makes a big difference and I think that POSIX capabilities are the way to go For EasyLFS 0 5 I will track down all programs installed with the SUID bit and will try to replace this bit with the proper capabilities This will add another security feature to EasyLFS and together with SELinux it should provide a quite nice system SELinux of course will stay optional but I think the migration from SUID to POSIX capabilities may not be We will see Article by reptiler Community Blogs Tech Stack Solutions Tech Stack Solutions is my company that provides Unix support Sign up or simply get in touch to find out how I can help Search this Website Recent Posts How to Install Ubuntu Linux without a DVD or USB How to Securely Save All Your Passwords with Keepass 9 Signs You Should Use Linux on Your Computer The Easiest Way to Optimize Your MySQL Database Performance Setting up a Linux Web Development Environment in Windows Hunting Down Disk Space Hogs on Linux Command Line 6 Simple Android Apps for Monitoring and Managing Your Linux Server Easily Manage Remote Files on Linux with Konqueror and Kate webmin Best Control Panels

  • Nvidia says no to free drivers, I say no to Nvidia
    you bought Perhaps But what about the thing that makes it work that makes it do what you bought it to do Well apparently that one you don t own You are merely rented it with the right to use it as is and that s about it If you think something doesn t work because there is a bug in the driver nope can t fix it Gotta contact their sweet customer service and beg them to fix it So in short the deal is you get the card but the only way to use it is to rent a driver to which you have an incomplete access thereby making your fruitful use of the card consistently dependent on Nvidia and quite obviously therefore limiting the control you as a supposed owner of the card really have over it Who gives them the right to do this Well frankly you so long as you buy the card I ve said in my last post here that I don t necessarily believe anymore that them offering such a distasteful deal is an immoral thing to do but the question is do you wish to accept it Do you agree that paying for something and then having limited access is a good deal for you That s something everyone has to answer for themselves I for one while I ve been contemplating buying Nvidia as my next card because of the reverse engineered noveau driver which last time I checked was progressing quite well now feel like spitefully saying no AMD is helping develop a free driver for their modern cards and is therefore the way to go Bottom line is Nvidia you say no to freedomware drivers I say no to you How about that Perhaps with enough people in
