Embedded Linux where to start?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 21, 2007
I need to setup an embedded Linux box, which can run an embedded version of Debian.
The problem is that I don't even know where to start.
Is there any guide/guides that would help to complete the task for a user who can setup Apache and Samba yet never compiled a kernel before? Or am I shooting too far?
The hardware is Picotux 200 (ARM9).
Installing Linux on Gateway systems VOID your warranty...
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 23, 2007
Well, let me explain in a bit more depth, and fill in a bit of back story as well.
For starters, let me be clear up front not to miss guide anyone. Installing Linux doesn't really void you warranty at least not indefinitely, as long as you pay for any repairs during your Linux use (including hardware) and reinstall Windows, then your warranty will be restored.
A friend of mine at work, has an increasing interesting in Ubuntu and Linux in general. He has a tendency to stay "cutting edge" and always attempts to stay ahead of technology. Linux is obviously his next step forward has he becomes increasingly unsatisfied with Windows and more so Vista.
So at his request I gave him some pointers on specific hardware and even Laptop Manufactures. The end decision was his, and one day he comes in to tell me he has purchased a Gateway laptop, and much to my surprise has installed Ubuntu and has everything (including Nvidia drivers installed and running).
Android and Linux where are the practical similarities?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 18, 2011
What can I do with Android, that I do (in my case) with Xubuntu? I have been doing a lot of searching on the Net to answer this question, but I haven't found any consistent resources that review the practical similarities between Android and Linux, seen from a Linux users point of view, without installing a custom ROM?
I have a rooted Samsung Galaxy Spica (i5700) running Android 2.1, with "a Better Terminal App Pro" installed, as well as BusyBox. Obviously, APT isn't included with Android 2.1, so I won't be doing any software updating that way.
Here are a few basic questions:
Is it possible to edit some preferences, with more options, using VI, than from the GUI?How does the Android file structure compare to Linux?Is it possible to install some CLI apps like lynx, nano, alpine or mutt, cmus, etc?What is the path to a microSD card?Is it possible to use wget and save a file to the microSD card?Is it possible for me to use ftp to log into my web hotel and copy files to it
free linux sms gateway software

what i need, as if our client can send sms through our website. we are not sure whether our countrie's mobile operator let us send sms with there gateway.
so what we wanna do is; keep a server connected with (fixed wireless terminal/telular/a device which contain local service provider's sim inside and connected with serial port of the server) and any software that can receive the data from website, and process it to send via connected device with serial port of the server. so the device cotains local operator's sim inside it, send the sms. and mobile subscriber can receive that on their mobile phone.
If any free linux software out there plz let me know.
I need to design games in Linux, where should I go?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 23, 2005
I like to design games by hobby (www.oriontide.com) and I've been designing games for Windows users for quite some time.
The program I used was Game Maker. Recently, I got fed up with Windows and wiped it from my drive, now I use Fedora 3 exclusively. Fedora does everything I need an OS to do, except Game Design. The only regret I have with my switch is losing the ability to use Game Maker. I really like that program.
Anyway, I'd like to find a good programming tool to make games in Linux. I'd also like to start programming in 3D. My 3D programming skills are severely lacking, so what I need is basically something that is insanely easy to learn but also produces great results. Either that, or I would need to find a way to run Game Maker. I've tried Wine and even Cedega but it doesn't work well, I even have VMWare installed but it doesn't have hardware acceleration so it's pointless to use vmware for game design. The games I have designed for Windows run terribly slow in VMware.
Good IDE in linux, where are they?? Page 2

Quanta is nice for html/php stuff. I agree about Kwrite, the color coding is a lot nicer than standard plain "notepad/wordpad" on windows.
Unity Linux where is it on list of distros?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 24, 2010
Looking through LinuxQuestions' list in Distro Reviews, I find no mention of Unity.
I downloaded this distro from the University of Idaho mirror the other day and loaded it on my ancient Dell PIII I had maxed out at a 996 MHz CPU, 512MB RAM and an 80GB ATA 133 hard drive -- it runs GREAT!
I did run into a problem with the new Linux kernel -- it is too much for the P3 to handle (but this was my fault for not knowing the CPU's limitations). Otherwise, the boot time is a tremendous improvement over anything else I've tried, so far on my old machine.
Be careful with passwords on install, per usual. Also, the repos are limited. I recommend downloading the Open Office iso to install on this distro later, if so desired.
Overall, this minimal distro performs admirably and deserves a spot on your review list.
New to Linux, where to get started
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 19, 2011
So I want to break the mold at my house. Sick and tired of the Xp viruses and malwares and would like to run Linux as I "here" its more secure? and less prone to the hack world out there.
So, being new to the world of Linux, and hearing it's a "safer" OS I'd appreciate some tips, feedback regarding security, viruses and malware protection, as well as which would be the GUI of choice....as I see there are several options....
Where can I download from , although I do see a "download link"....can I download my Linux OS and gui right from this site??
Is the Flurry screensaver available in Linux? Where to find it?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 11, 2006
I'm relatively new to Linux; I switched over from Windows XP not even a month ago. I only just got my setup working the way I want it to, and I still have some things to toy with (printer, scanner, et cetera).
I'm using Fedora Core 5 and am pleased with it thus far, but am disappointed with the lack of screensavers. I've found some nice screensavers out there, but I'm still a little shaky on installing with anything but an .rpm, so I've decided to focus on finding my favorite screensaver and avoid others for the time being (the word "compile" has never been so frightening).
In OS X there's a screensaver called Flurry. I used it in Windows XP, having found a port. I'd like it for Linux.
As I said, I'm in FC5, running GNOME. I think screensavers work in both GNOME and KDE anyway, though.
I'm sure plenty of you are familiar with this screensaver .. does anyone know if it's on Linux, and where I can find it?
Honestly speaking, it's probably the only scr
