Installing and Using a SSH Server

http://tombuntu.com

Having an SSH server can be incredibly useful; you can access a “headless” server without a monitor, get shell access to your system from anywhere in the world, transfer files without using FTP, securely tunnel VNC or web browsing, safely restart a locked-up system, and a lot more. However, improperly setting up a SSH server can leave your system vulnerable. Here’s how to install a secure SSH server (specifically OpenSSH) on Ubuntu or other Debian-based distributions.

Bits from the Debian Eee PC team

http://syn.theti.ca

"In the past few months in the Debian-EeePC team, a number of interesting things have been happening. [...] Thanks to the efforts of numerous users and developers who are being added to our ranks daily, we expect by the time Lenny releases we will be well on our way to providing a pure Debian solution for the Eee. Whether or not everything needed for the Eee is in Lenny at that time remains to be seen. We need to allow for how long it takes to get new drivers into the kernel. But if we miss the release, we will certainly provide backports and look forward to full support in the following release."

Debian & APT - Why I love it

http://www.itpro.co.uk

I don’t want to say its the best, but I’ve been using Debian, Ubuntu and other APT based Linuxes for years now. Ubuntu on desktop PC’s and Debian on Servers (only because I have a few servers already on Debian and keeping all identical is worth doing). I don’t run GUI’s on my servers.

Flipping the Linux switch: Envy, no longer a deadly sin

http://www.downloadsquad.com

We're taking a little departure this week from our sometimes successful attempt to be non-distro-specific, and looking at a neat little program that runs on Debian and Ubuntu flavors (including Ubuntu-derivatives, like Mint).

Debian and Ubuntu

http://www.robertpeaslee.com

Ubuntu seems to be the latest, greatest thing in the world of operating systems. The creators of Ubuntu have done some good things in terms of making Linux easier to use and in providing guidance for Linux newbs. But with newbs you bring ignorance, and there are a couple things I’ve been seeing that are kind of ridiculous.

Impossible thing #1: Developing efficient, well engineered free software like Debian GNU/Linux

http://www.freesoftwaremagazine.com

With any paradigm shift, it is difficult to see the new world from the old one, even though it is glaringly obvious once you’ve crossed over. Empirical evidence is one way to bridge the gap. To that end, I want to show some solid evidence for the “impossible” things that commons-based peer production (CBPP) has already accomplished—things that the old conventional wisdom would tell us “can’t be done”. This week, I’ll look at what is probably the most obvious case: free software.

Thank you for the code

http://www.itwire.com

There are a total of 21,652 packages installed on my home workstation, an AMD64 single core processor box which has been in use since March 2006. It runs the testing stream of Debian. That's a lot of code, all of it free as in beer.

Is it hard for new contributors to help Debian? Can we improve things a bit?

http://www.lucas-nussbaum.net

Debian could use more manpower, but is it actually easy for new contributors who would like to help to do useful things, and get the impression that they actually improved Debian?
