What do you get when you put a stable operating system, an innovative desktop manager and plenty of eye candies together? You get nothing short of a beautiful and functional OS. Elive is a Debian-based Linux distro, customized with Enlightenment e17 desktop manager. It is designed with the aim of providing a stable, fully functional and beautiful operating system that can run with minimal hardware requirement. The current stable version is based on Debian-etch while the version that is under development is based on the recently released Lenny. Knowing the stability and versatility of Debian and the elegant and simplicity of Enlightenment, there are little things that Elive can go wrong.

GRUB 2 is the default boot loader and manager for Ubuntu since version 9.10 (Karmic Koala). As the computer starts, GRUB 2 either presents a menu and awaits user input or automatically transfers control to an operating system kernel. GRUB 2 is a descendant of GRUB (GRand Unified Bootloader). It has been completely rewritten to provide the user significantly increased flexibility and performance. GRUB 2 is Free Software.

In previous versions of Windows, you probably remember the good ol paging file. It’s used to when physical memory becomes overcommitted and it hold objects that usually have not been accessed in a long time. That is pagefile.sys. Next, we had the hibernate option in Windows that let you save the kernel and all applications to your hard drive so that you could start your computer back up faster than doing a full reboot. That is hiberfile.sys.

In addition to the tasks often performed by users in Section 44.1, “End User Control of SELinux”, SELinux administrators could be expected to perform a number of additional tasks. These tasks typically require root access to the system. Such tasks are significantly easier under the targeted policy. For example, there is no need to consider adding, editing, or deleting Linux users from the SELinux users, nor do you need to consider roles. This section covers the types of tasks required of an administrator who maintains Red Hat Enterprise Linux running SELinux.

The Robot Operating System (ROS) is a set of software libraries and tools that help you build robot applications. From drivers to state-of-the-art algorithms, and with powerful developer tools. Back in 2009, I was in the middle of programming my own general framework for robotics using Windows and C# when I came across a video of the Willow Garage PR2 plugging itself into a regular wall socket to recharge. Without another thought, I deleted every line of code I had written over the past two years, installed Linux over Windows and jumped on the ROS train..." -- Patrick Goebel, Pi RobotBack in 2009, I was in the middle of programming my own general framework for robotics using Windows and C# when I came across a video of the Willow Garage PR2 plugging itself into a regular wall socket to recharge.

This course is an introduction to using a small footprint Real Time Operating System on a Cortex-M based microcontroller. Throughout the course we use the CMSIS-RTOS API which is designed to be a standard software interface for operating systems running on Cortex-M microcontrollers. The course is designed as a hands on workshop using the Keil MDK-ARM development software.

In general a file manager is a program that gives some kind of interface to the file system and that show in a graphical or textual way the files and directory, usually a file manager allow to do some standard operations such as delete, rename copy/paste and other typical operations that you can do on files. Twin-panel file managers have obligatory connected panels where action in one panel results in a reaction in the second. So for example you could move a file from the first to the second panel, or copy it. In this roundup I‘ll show you some of the most used Twin-panel file manager available on Linux, sometimes they are also called Orthodox file managers or command-based file managers and in general they have three windows (two panels and one command line window).

The special file /dev/initrd is a read-only block device. Device /dev/initrd is a RAM disk that is initialized (e.g. loaded) by the boot loader before the kernel is started. The kernel then can use the the block device /dev/initrd's contents for a two phased system boot-up. In the first boot-up phase, the kernel starts up and mounts an initial root file-system from the contents of /dev/initrd (e.g. RAM disk initialized by the boot loader). In the second phase, additional drivers or other modules are loaded from the initial root device's contents. After loading the additional modules, a new root file system (i.e. the normal root file system) is mounted from a different device.

The contribution from Marc Tanguy (email@example.com), 2001-09-27. If you have an adaptec scsi card (2940u2, 29160, 39160), you simply use the 'diagnose' mode (using BIOS v3.10.0 recommended). It must be activated in the scsi card BIOS menu. If you don't own an adaptec card, you have to know what is the 'booting' disk (usually ID 0, but not necessary, it can be defined in the scsi card BIOS) where LILO is going to be found and start : this is the first disk so it has number 0x80. Then it's very simple, the BIOS follows the IDs.

Last year, VMware’s ESX hypervisor software led the vendor pack in number of installations, according to the Gartner Group. VMware offers ESXi for free, but if you want additional features, you have to pay a premium. Fortunately for anyone with a tight IT budget, ESXi isn’t the only option for running a hypervisor—there are others, and a handful of them are free and open-source.

In this doc we explain how to put clonezilla live in your harddrive which already has an OS installed. Here we use grub boot loader as an example. You have to put the clonezilla live files in a FAT, ext2/3, reiserfs or any grub supported partition. If you do not have such a partition, you can use gparted to resize your partition and create another partition to put clonezilla live. Here we assume you already have a FAT partition /dev/sda4 to put clonezilla live.

Webmin is a web-based interface for system administration for Unix. Using any modern web browser, you can setup user accounts, Apache, DNS, file sharing and much more. Webmin removes the need to manually edit Unix configuration files like /etc/passwd, and lets you manage a system from the console or remotely. See the standard modules page for a list of all the functions built into Webmin, or check out the screenshots.

VirtualBox is a general-purpose full virtualizer for x86 hardware, targeted at server, desktop and embedded use. For a thorough introduction to virtualization and VirtualBox, please refer to the online version of the VirtualBox User Manual's first chapter. This page is all about how you can contribute to VirtualBox. If you are only looking for information on how to download and run VirtualBox, see the end-user documentation page instead. If you first want to find out how to get the VirtualBox source code and build it, have a look at the technical documentation.
