Linux in the future

Posted 09-06-2011 at 01:40 PM by stefragre

I'm so tired of reading 'negative' media articles about the Linux of tomorrow. How can anyone know the future? I can guess though, and one thing I'll guess is that the constant evolving of Linux in so many areas
can only be good thing. To think it's grown this much from a simple collage students project to where it is today. Numbers? Ha. User experience. Thats where it shines. You or I can take someone else's work
and make it work for you. Don't have to do a thing, if you don't want...

Configuring the Ethernet NIC in CentOS 6 (RHEL 6, Scientific Linux 6)

Take a look at your ifcfg-ethX configuration file under /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts directory (substitute ethX with your network interface, e.g. eth0). In my case, "Minimal" install of CentOS 6 configured the ethernet interface not to start automatically (line ONBOOT="no") and to rely on NetworkManager (NM_Controlled="yes"). This is odd, as NetworkManager is not installed by default. Thus, even though the system is in runlevel 3 and you should have networking (if...

How do I learn?

Posted 09-06-2011 at 05:11 AM by m3rl1n

In my last (b)log I mentioned how fast my family adapted from Windows to Linux, and how time consuming it is to catch-up on Linux command-line jargon, GUI stuff, gizmo's, distro's and what is there not....

I finally discovered a nice website and educational program that will gradually teach me Linux. Nostalgia creeps upon me for what I have read so far. I am talking about Ian Shields LPI exam preperations: Junior Level Linux Administration, found at: http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/li...101/index.html...

Refocussing on Linux OS'

Posted 09-06-2011 at 04:16 AM by Ken Martin

After a disconcertingly bad and completely unexpected (ok, ok, call me naive, but for a long while my Mac Book did just work) Lion OS experience, and not really wishing to pursue future costly Windows upgrades, I have decided to refocus on Linux.

I think I will try Fedora again. I am wondering what it is like running the freeware security product Prey. I must have a dabble during our forthcoming Southern summer. Still, Fedora is a bit bleeding edge for those inexperienced with Linux.....

To start, some gripes

Posted 09-06-2011 at 01:21 AM by SukiiPooru

I'm getting more frustrated as more applications forget that lovely middle button `swipe to copy and click to paste` tool. Is ti due to `windows` converts, now Linux developers, not having experienced the early days of terminal applications?
