    How To Compile A Kernel – The Ubuntu Way
    Each distribution has some specific tools to build a custom kernel from the sources. This article is about compiling a kernel on Ubuntu systems. It describes how to build a custom kernel using the latest unmodified kernel sources from www.kernel.org (vanilla kernel) so that you are independent from the kernels supplied by your distribution. It also shows how to patch the kernel sources if you need features that are not in there. I have tested this on Ubuntu 6.10 Server (“Edgy Eft”) and Ubuntu 6.06 Desktop (“Dapper Drake”). I want to say first that this is not the...

    Running ASP.NET Applications in Debian and Ubuntu using XSP and Mono
    Mono is an open-source project providing the necessary software to develop and run .NET client and server applications on Linux, Solaris, Mac OS X, Windows, and Unix. Monodevelop is probably the best IDE for developing .NET applications on Linux. In order to install and use it for development, you will also need the Mono .NET runtime environment installed. Mono has a fully functional implementation of ASP.NET. This includes full support for ASP.NET Web Forms and Web Services. This essentially means that more or less any ASP.NET application that you have developed using with the .NET Fra...

    Xubuntu 8.10 – Review
    Why Xubuntu? Well, in keeping with my need for speed and my love of the Xfce desktop, my next partition filler is Xubuntu 8.10 Intrepid Ibex. What do I need day to day? I like speed and stability, punto. To be honest I find Gnome and Kde do not live up to my perception of speed, so I choose Xfce and Fluxbox. Maybe too minimal for some people, but i am happy with the command-line, can hack the config files to suit my needs, and have spent a few years shaping my general distro setup. I only have apps and features which complete my daily tasks. Does Xubuntu offer what I need? Basically yes. And...

    Ubuntu – Removing or Editing a Startup Script
    Earlier we saw how to add one of your own scripts to run when you startup the computer with ubuntu on it. Now we get to removing startup scripts, or editing them. You can install the Debian Runlevel Configuration Tool, rcconf: $sudo apt-get install rcconf Then you can execute rcconf as the root user: $sudo rcconf and select/deselect services to start at startup by pressing the spacebar to toggle the *s, and then use the Tab key to get to OK and press Enter to save the changes. I find it useful to turn off those services that I dont personally need, speeding up the startup process. On the othe...

    Ubuntu – Installing Microsoft Fonts
    Even if you use OpenOffice, you might still want all the Microsoft TrueType fonts so that documents created using Word or PowerPoint look as they were supposed to when you open them with OpenOffice. Also, with the Microsoft Fonts installed we browsing will be better since the pages will look as the designer originally intended them to. Most webpages are designed with Microsoft fonts in mind. The stylesheet specify these fonts. On Linux, when these specified fonts are not available on your computer, they are replaced with generic equivalents.
