Android alternative has Samsung's supportThe men and women behind the open source Tizen mobile OS platform have stated an early claim to win developer hearts and minds ahead of Mobile World Congress next week with the official release of Tizen 2.0 source code and SDK.…
Shell scripts are often running as background processes, doing useful things without running in a visible shell. To write such scripts can be quite painful, as all errors occur out of sight as well. While log files can hold a lot of information, finding the relevant information is a bit trickier. My solution is to log only the errors with all the details to a small database. This database contains tables for the message, the corresponding stack trace and the important environment variables. I have chosen for an SQLite database in this howto, but the same principle works with other databases as well.
NDISwrapper, the open-source project that implements the Microsoft Windows kernel API and NDIS API within Linux for running Windows wireless network card drivers on Linux, has been updated. This effectively native Windows WiFi network driver project for Linux now runs on new kernels, up to and including the brand new Linux 3.8 kernel. This is the first release from the project in more than one year...
Last time around, I had mentioned that I have been able to put down two research questions for my thesis project, where the first was to do a usability test for GNOME3. Moving forward on that direction, I decided on doing task analysis for the usability testing. The process given below is what I narrowed down to, with my rationale for doing so.
With the recent release of Debian 7.0 Installer Release Candidate, the final release of Debian 7.0 "Wheezy" is effectively on approach. For those not up to speed on this major Linux distribution update, here's a list of some of the top features...
While there have already been a number of Radeon Gallium3D benchmarks from Mesa 9.1 using the common R600 Gallium3D driver that supports the Radeon HD 2000 through Radeon HD 6000 series graphics cards, still in existence is the R300g driver. For those still left using a vintage Radeon 9500 (R300) through Radeon X1000 (R500) graphics cards -- basically any ATI GPU roughly between seven and eleven years old -- there's this legacy open-source graphics driver. R300g doesn't see nearly the amount of development activity that the more modern R600g driver sees, but there's still a fair amount of changes. In this article are benchmarks of Mesa 9.1-rc2 on an ATI Radeon X1800XT (R520) graphics card compared to the past four Mesa/Gallium3D stable releases.

Claims single OS running across all client form factorsFurthering its plans to broaden the reach of the Ubuntu Linux distribution from PCs and servers to mobile devices, Canonical on Tuesday unveiled its new user "experience" layer for tablets.…
As the CeBIT upcoming convention in Germany nears, Canonical has announced what it will be showcasing at the event–which, in turn, provides some clues about where the company behind one of the world’s most popular open source operating systems might be concentrating its efforts in coming months. Alas, Ubuntu tablets are not on the list. But if you’re interested in Ubuntu on servers in and the cloud, there’s going to be a lot to see in Hanover between March 5 and 9.
This series is proving a lot more popular than I'd figured. Who would have thought so many people enjoy noodling around with Web servers? By popular demand, "Web Served" now enters the bonus round with two things I didn't think I was going to be able to get to: MediaWiki in this piece, and Etherpad Lite in the next.

It bothers many of us everytime we hear about yet another non-obvious, overreaching, and abusive patent—particularly[he]nbsp[/he]a software patent[he]nbsp[/he]that is[he]nbsp[/he]getting in the way of innovation and creativity. Additionally, there is an overwhelming sense of frustration when a regular citizen can[he]#039[/he]t[he]nbsp[/he]do much to change the current, sad state of affairs.
