...Linux Apps Installation and general linux tutorial
Long time windows user trying to make the conversion to linux.
I know just enough about linux to poke around and realize that I should
learn more. So that leads me into my first question.
Is there a general linux tutorial out there somewhere. Not the basic
tutorial of "this is the KDE desktop . . .". Really more a linux
administrator tutorial that teachs me the basic path structure,
configuration files I should know and how to edit them, how to install
and configure software, what all the services do, security issues . . .
etc. I basically need...More big security holes in Linux
Open-source developers have reported two security holes in Linux components
that can allow attackers to gain control of a PC. By tricking a user into
viewing a specially crafted image file, an attacker can exploit a bug in the
Imlib library, used by graphics-viewing applications, to execute malicious
code. The bug is caused by a boundary error in the decoding of
runlength-encoded bitmap images, which can be exploited to cause a buffer
overflow. Gentoo, MandrakeSoft SA, and other Linux vendors have begun
distributing fixes for the bug, which affects Imlib 1.x and imlib2 1.x. Red
...Linux to Linux VPN
Hopefully this is something that can be done.
I have a main office with a Win2000 server. I have a remote office with 3
computers, right now each of the remote computers connects to the
windows2000 server over the internet using VPN with the W2K box being the
VPN server. This causes a few problems because of the domain login and the
user's are not the ummmm brightest with computers.
What I want to do it place a perment VPN with auto re-connect so when they
unplug the DSL modem to plug in the Fax (I know I know) and then plug the
DSL back in it will re-sync the VPN...Migrate linux to linux
We want to migrate our gw7 from netware to linux but because we lack a
spliffy new server i need to move it to a temporary server first.
Thankfully we have an OES2 'test' server currently running in our production
tree with suse10 and oes2.
After we migrate the Netware server to the test server and get everything
running, is it enough to just install the agents on the real server, copy
the entire database over from test maintaining path etc, change some ip's in
the nds and hit start ?

"Finding open source and Linux-supporting software to replace
proprietary applications isn't as hard as it used to be. In fact,
there is no longer a shortage of non-proprietary business applications
that support Linux, says Bernard Golden, CEO of Navica Inc., an IT
consulting firm in San Ramon, Calif. To save IT managers some Google
searching, he offers a few alternatives and some advice on finding

...linux client 8 sp2 get with pages not refreshed with linux
From day 1 that I'm was using the lunix client on my opensuse 11.3 I
got the problem that the client isn't responsive all the time and very
often, I get a with screen when I open a mail.
If I resize the screen I could have luck to see the messages.
I use an Intel HD graphics card with custom patched driver because the
driver from opensuse 11.3 doesn't support dual screen correctly.

The goal of this article is to provide the reader with a template for
constructing a host-based firewall that provides a useful layer of
protection against the risks of exposing a system to internal and/or
external users. Additionally, the reader can gain an understanding of
construction methods for host-based firewalls in general and Linux-based
firewalls in particular.
This article is targeted for use with RedHat Advanced Server 2.1 and SuSE
Enterprise Server 8, but most of the material applies to distributions based
on Linux kernel version 2.4 and newer.
We assume that the read...Schneier on Security: Linux Security
Schneier on Security: Linux Security
I'm a big fan of the Honeynet Project (and a member of their board of
directors). They don't have a security product; they do security
research. Basically, they wire computers up with sensors, put them on
the Internet, and watch hackers attack them.
They just released a report about the security of Linux:

Misleading claims and false advertising by virus protection rackets to
the contrary, you simply don't need antivirus products to keep your
Linux box free of malware.
