Its ironic that Microsoft have created a platform that is so easily corruptable, but is punishing opportunists. Its the Garden of Eden where Microsoft is God... lol

290  General / As seen on the internet / Get Published In LinuxFormat (Top UK Linux Mag.) - No Qualifications Req. on: October 23, 2008, 14:28:17 PM

"Write for Linux Format

Interested in writing for Linux Format? We're always looking for feature or tutorial ideas from developers, aspiring journalists and passionate Linux users. If you're working on an important new project, a crazy homebrew scheme or simply a new way of looking at Linux, and if you think you can put that experience into words, we want to hear from you. You don't have to be a professional writer; however, we ask that you follow some procedure (evil grin).

To start, you should send us a feature pitch. Give us 100 words on who you are (what qualifications you have, even if that's just little more than a passion for the topic), 200 words on what you want to cover (including length and technical depth) and a rough idea of when you think the piece would be ready. This should be addressed to the editor, Paul Hudson.

Before you submit your idea, the following points may be helpful:

    * First, if you don't read the magazine, you won't write for it. We need people who understand our market, understand our tone and understand our style.
    * Second, if your idea has been covered in the last year, it's unlikely we will cover it again (unless you really are doing it from a cunning new angle). See the LXF archives page to see what has been printed.
    * Third, you must be experienced in the area you want to cover. We are not looking for articles on 'Linux by a newbie'; if we wanted that, we could find any number of monkeys off the street.

If your idea sounds good, chances are we'll give you the green light to write the piece. That doesn't mean we'll print it - just that we're willing to give you a shot at writing it. If it comes out good (or if it comes out average, but can be improved to 'good' with some feedback and amendments) then congratulations - you'll almost certainly make it into the magazine.

If we reject your idea - or if your piece is so horribly broken that we can't even give you feedback to bring it up to par - then relax, breathe and go back to the drawing board. Don't be discouraged, though: writing is easy, but writing well takes practice just like any other skill. Each time you try, you get better."

I'd personally reccomend the Dell Vostro range, its aimed at small businesses, and whilst it has a cheap base cost it can be heavily customized.

15.4" @ 319 Euros (default > can be upgraded):
Processor: 2 GHz Intel Celeron
LCD: Widescreen WXGA 1280*800
RAM: 1 GiB (Dual Channel)
Hard Drive: 80 GiB @ 5400 RPM SATA
Graphics Card: IntelJ GMA X3100 (upgradable to NVIDIA 256 MiB 8400GS for 70 Euros)
(Comes with Vista Home Basic pre-installed, which can be resold at a profit...)

The wireless/graphics work perfectly.

The following are my own screenshots of my Vostro 1500 with Pardus 2008.1 installed.

293  Assistance / Download/Repos / [Solved] Using Package Manager To Download, But Not Install .PiSi Packages? on: October 23, 2008, 12:49:39 PM
I want for Pardus to be the first Linux distro in history to have all its repositories available in torrent form, so download links will always be available (servers may go down, the global linux community won't), there is more flexibility using torrent clients (resume downloads whenever you want) etc.

At the moment I'm downloading each package individually, but the rate at which they wil be released is very sluggish, does anyone know of a way to use the Package Manager to "Select All Packages" in one category, download them, but not install them?

Current torrents can be accessed at:
294  Assistance / Software / .LZMA Extractor? on: October 23, 2008, 12:42:01 PM
Pardus has posted individual files for the development of its projects, I intend to make these files more easily available via P2P downloading, it would be far faster (meaning in future I can keep in sync with the rapidly changing projects) to download the latest .pisi package than just extract it. Extracting a .pisi package leaves 3 files extracted, two are .xml, the other is .tar.lzma, how do I extract that? I can't seem to do it through 7Zip through GUI, and the package reccomended on the internet is not in the repositories.

Thats why I'm suggesting this method for anyway who wants to try it out, see if they like it. You can select the option to install nvidia-xconfig etc, and anything else that <you> choose to, its got a finer degree of control than than the Display Manager. But, to each his own, I'm just personally used to using Package Manager Smiley

Since Evolution on Pardus would only be experimental for the time being, why don't you try other stable email clients, I'd reccomend Thunderbird (made by the Mozilla Foundation):

Why do you use Smplayer? VLC player is without a doubt the most compatible and portable media player, it has all codecs already built into it, VLC player has a playlist option as well:

You're referring to navigating to TASMA > Peripherals > Display? Do you have the option to configure the NIVIDA driver afterwards?
