  • Too many free operating systems? I don’t think so.
    such vastness of choice I still find it hard to locate my perfect OS There is still at least one combination which appears nobody achieved yet In a sense while some are calling for less choice I find myself with too little choice as options that I narrow down my choice to all require a compromise Now we could say that I can t have everything perfect that there will always be a compromise to make that I should just find what fits my desires best and learn to live with it However on the other hand isn t this exactly the opposite of the spirit in which Free Software world grew We don t learn to live with anything If we want something we get it sooner or later we scratch the itch and ultimately make significant progress So what is my perfect OS that combination I couldn t find any other OS implementing Well here are some of the properties that I keep looking for High availability of software and support Natively supports running very recent but stable software Has simple but powerful and fast package management with an easy to use GUI front Uses as simple underlying system as possible nothing is complex to read unless it really has to be think KISS Smooth rounded up user friendly experience it just works It makes a distinction between free and non free software offering only Free Software by default Uses a rolling release update method new versions are merely snapshots at certain points in time upgrades can be completely automatic So I claim that there is no Free OS or a GNU Linux distribution which fully fits the above requirements at least none that I found I am sure some would want to contest that so let me be the first to provide some examples First that may come to mind here is Ubuntu which comes close but it doesn t have rolling release updates ships with non free bits by default isn t exactly compliant with the KISS Keep It Simple Silly principle and isn t all that rounded up always either at least 64bit version Is it Debian It almost could be if unstable wasn t unstable or if stable was as recent as unstable It is simply too slow moving So what about sidux Yeah not exactly a rounded up experience if you ask me As if dpkg apt synaptic wasn t enough I need to run some scripts and be on look out in order to avoid breakages this impairs user friendliness Is it Frugalware a Slackware based distro that uses pacman package manager It is very close but seriously lacks high availability and developers and also isn t yet very rounded up Fedora Yum and Pirut is not my idea of a simple and fast package management Also no rolling release updates at all And so what else is there really The world of GNU Linux is divided into Debian based RPM based

  • More stuff on less space – Shrinking the EasyLFS-LiveCD – Part 2
    come with about 50MB of new and updated stuff compared to EasyLFS 0 3 Included in these 50MB are useful things like the Wireless Tools and WPA Supplicant D Bus and HAL and other goodies Overall the next version will be a good step forward and offer lots of useful stuff on much less space The final CD might end up having about 350MB although it might still grow a bit since I guess that the new version of GCC makes slightly bigger binaries Well we will see how big it will be in the end but it for sure will be a lot smaller than the previous version Maybe it will even give enough room for ambitious users to add the installation of KDE or another desktop environment to it But as for myself I don t think about adding this although it came to my mind if maybe I ll add an additional module that can be downloaded and put into the CD image in order to get a full system with KDE But that s something for the future not for now We will see how things develop 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

  • What really should be a major focus for fedora developers
    system to boot I promptly tried to run a yum update but for some reason yum and all of its dependencies were still in fc6 packages so I needed to get to the fedora repository and manually download and install yum rpm and all the other yum dependencies After a 12 hour update of all the packages I finally got to reboot Upon rebooting the MBR got screwed up somehow and failed to boot so I had to yet again boot into the recovery console and rebuild the MBR And finally I no longer have a graphical Grub menu Luckly everything is working with no data loss But this is one of the things which I feel is really hurting Linux the inability to properly upgrade a distribution Fedora and Ubuntu both have a 6 month time frame with releases thats two versions a year One would think that they would make upgrading as flawless as possible Currently there are 3 methods to dealing with a new distribution 1 Full install This method is great if the user takes the time to back everything up and also takes the time to remember every application which they have installed 2 Upgrade This method is always flawed and can cause systems to become useless meaning more things break than get fixed 3 Upgrade through repository This method is never supported by the distribution and there for is looked down upon Out of the three methods method 3 is the most logical to me The user should not have to download an ISO waste a DVD or multiple CDs just to update the core OS Take Windows for example when a new service pack comes out you can either have Microsoft ship you a it on a CD or you can go to

  • Is it over for AppArmor?
    care of by Novell Novell s decision to stop working on AppArmor could also influence the next release of Ubuntu Ubuntu 7 10 was supposed to feature AppArmor But I am not sure if this is going to happen now Maybe Canonical and the Ubuntu community are willing to continue working on AppArmor probably together with the team around Crispin Cowan However AppArmor goes on I don t think this event has a positive effect for it Also I think it s questionable if Novell turns back to using and maybe even supporting SELinux They had tried it before they bought Immunix where AppArmor originally was developed and failed because they had no working policy That SELinux by now is ready for every day use and more or less even for everybody can be seen when you take a look at the Red Hat distributions Red Hat Enterprise and Fedora which both come with SELinux enabled by default And from my personal experience I can say that you really don t notice anything of it I use Fedora on my PC and on my notebook and there are no problems at all Well I guess we will see if and how AppArmor will be continued But in my opinion this was a goal for SELinux 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

  • Freedomware Gamefest FAQ
    with games first and then with operating systems So basically yes if you use Windows or Mac OS X or BSD or any other OS and a game included runs on that platform most do you are welcome to join 7 How is the gamefest organized The final number of players will be divided into game slots or components and then into teams if applicable Consequently the teams or players within these game slots will be divided into brackets which determine who will play with whom to determine the winner Each game slot can be seen as a separate tournament with two stages qualifications and the actual final tournament One player can participate in as many game slots as s he wishes so there could be a player that is both playing Nexuiz and Tremulous at the same time and categorized in the applying teams accordingly We will maintain a list of game slots teams if existent and players within them as well as brackets in which they are organized and matches that have been scheduled from them 8 What are game slots exactly This is a term we use to refer to a game included in the festival along with its accompanying hierarchy of teams players brackets and schedules of matches One slot basically equals to one separate component of the festival a separate tournament under this event 9 How will matches be organized They will be organized in so called brackets As wikipedia says A bracket is the diagrammatic representation of the series of games played during a tournament named as such because it appears to be a large number of interconnected punctuational brackets So in a Nexuiz game slot we could have three teams with 5 players where the first and second team will play in the first match and the winner of the two will play with a third team in the second match That would be represented by a simple example bracket below Matches will be schedules based on the preferences of players involved in each match This largely depends on when are they all available for playing It is expected that this would involve weekends and perhaps sometimes evenings of week days 10 What servers will you be using Servers are being listed here They are provided mainly by Cluenet org but also by a few community sponsors like Tremulous and HSK HK 11 What if I have a bad lag We aim to make most servers available as soon as possible so you can test them and see what is your lag We can t guarantee anything as lag depends on a variety of factors including the players own connection If your lag is high on one game s server and most other players which want to play the same game are fine your option is to play another game slot instead where the lag may be more acceptable 12 What modes of play will be used Modes of play e g Capture

  • Nuxified and Cluenet prepare a gaming tourney. You are invited!
    default we have always preferred greater freedom than less of it We weren t clear on how to ethically view the issue of game art though which is why we actually asked Richard Stallman a long time veteran on such issues for an opinion and we got one With consideration of his thoughts we can conclude that non free game art are not an ethical problem the way non free software is because art is not functional and does not have a capability of lock in However freer art is better for collaboration between people and overall cultural growth This basically means that whatever the result of this poll we will consider it acceptable within the context of ethics What are the practical implications of either choice Well the first option is naturally a bit more limiting because it would allow only games which have both data and engine free in the same sense This includes games like Nexuiz OpenArena Battle for Wesnoth Frozen Bubble and other games which for example Debian includes in its main repository and Ubuntu The second option has a wider amount of acceptable games In addition to the ones mentioned this would include games like Tremulous Cube and its derivates certain Doom and Quake ports and basically other games included in the Debian contrib non free repositories or Ubuntu s multiverse As you vote for either of the two options I invite you to make suggestions of games that you d like to see supported in this tournament fitting the criteria that you chose The next step is to recruit players and divide them into teams if necessary and put them in brackets for each game as well as specify the times at which games will be played We will use Nuxified s gaming forum
