Virtualization and Emulation Choices in Linux

Wednesday, December 13th, 2006

I have a decent computer with a large hard drive. My initial intent was to boot multiple different operating systems (as can be seen by the 6+ EXT3 partitions). However the latest technology hype is the need for virtualization or emulation. In effect, this would allow loading one operating system inside another without any reboot.
I […]

Sun Java Changes

Wednesday, November 15th, 2006

Sun has made a significant step for providing users and developers better access and freedom with Java. Sun announced this week they will be open sourcing key parts of Java under the GPL. In effect most users should not see a direct impact on their Java usage, however in the long term Java will have […]

NTFS No Longer “Forbidden” in Fedora

Sunday, October 22nd, 2006

It appears as though NTFS support in Fedora is no longer considered to be a “Forbidden Item“. A request has been made to include NTFS-3G into Fedora Extras.
This has always seemed silly to me. The kernel has had NTFS read-only support for years. The kernel source shipped by Fedora includes the source to the driver. […]

New Hardware: 64 Bit

Saturday, July 8th, 2006

AMD released their first X86 based 64 bit processor over 3 years ago. While the original processors, Opterons, were for servers, the desktop variants, Athlon 64, soon followed. Due to the open nature of the Linux kernel, distributions of Linux supporting the 64 bit architecture were readily (and freely) available before Windows.
In the past year, […]

Friday, June 9th, 2006

In a serious blow to the freedom of the internet as a whole, the US House of Representatives defeated the Net Neutrality vote that would have prevented telecommunication companies from discriminating how and which websites can be accessed by end users. The effects which by far are not exagerated are listed on the It’s Our […]

Fedora Core 5 on Dell D810 Laptop

Tuesday, May 16th, 2006

Over the last weekend I installed Fedora Core 5 on a Dell Latitude D810 laptop.
Unlike Jason’s laptop criteria, I basically required a Dell laptop. I wanted the D610, however it was unavailable and I had to settle for the D810. Even though I customized it, I really did not have any control over what hardware […]

Linux Kernel Documentation

Sunday, May 7th, 2006

Within every release of the official kernel source from kernel.org there is a provided /Documentation directory. This directory contains various notes, guides, tips, documentation, explanations and otherwise useful information. Majority of this content is provided in pure text format.
I thought it would be convenient if I could navigate through this infomation on the internet. So […]
