This tutorial is being written to help you install Drop Bear to a chroot environment. Drop Bear is a relatively small SSH 2 server and client. It is an alternative lightweight program for openssh and it is designed for environments with low memory and processor resources, such as embedded systems.
There are some areas in which it's a bit weak. Take one of my personal annoyances: setting up the screen. There is something very wrong with screen setup under Linux, and as often as not, I have spend far too long fiddling with text files in order to get a new install working. In short, it's just not good enough.
With the problems of Vista, the end of the availability of XP, and the lack of Apple to see the light and open up OS X to non-Apple hardware, much is expected of the next release of the most popular consumer Linux distribution.
Red Hat, Inc. (Public, NYSE:RHT) shares just like everything else (including Apple (AAPL)) have been hurt by the recent Bear trends. The problems facing the market are endless and one of my favorite companies and stock has taken a big beating, right down to $1 above their 52-week low. The Company you ask? Linux King, Red Hat Inc.
Ubuntu is already the most popular Linux distribution and probably the first ever Linux distro to overshoot popularity of Linux itself. Now, what Ubuntu needs is a lot of promotional activism from the community. Here is a few Ubuntu adverts from YouTube that I hope will inspire designers among you to get up and start working.
Which GNU/Linux distribution a person prefers is a very individual choice. Some people like distributions that give them total access: the freedom to do whatever they want. Others want a desktop OS that will hold their hand if they run into problems.
Regular readers will remember quite a few posts in which Your Humble Narrator complains about this, that, or the other flaw in desktop Linux in general or an Ubuntu distribution in particular. Well, I take it all back.
The Linux operating system is the most successful open source project in history, but just how much is the software in a Linux distribution “worth”? We estimate that it would take approximately $10.8 billion to build the Fedora 9 distribution in today’s dollars, with today’s software development costs. Additionally, it would take $1.4 billion to develop the Linux kernel alone.
Cyber Cynic: "But, then Mozilla put Thunderbird on the back burner to focus its attention on Firefox, and, frankly, Thunderbird slowly aged into a second-rate e-mail client. Now, at long last, a new, and vastly improved version of Thunderbird has just been released, and, let me tell you, it's back to being great."
