Post date: June 21, 2005, 18:06 Category: Network Views: 1491 Comments: 0
Tutorial quote: This is a brief introduction to Darcs - a distributed SCM system and a healthy alternative to CVS. It will show you an easy, more modern approach to VCS. The project I contribute to (formerly XWT, renamed to Vexi) has greatly benefitted from moving to Darcs from CVS because now we can make rapid progress without the fear of making bad commits to the server or the server being down. People can code and pull other's code at their own convenience.

Linux Optimizing Desktop Performance, Part II
Post date: May 24, 2005, 13:05 Category: Optimizing Views: 1272 Comments: 0
Tutorial quote: As we discussed in last week's article, for most of its existence, people have distributed Linux as a workstation or a server rather than as a desktop. The default workstation that evolved has existed mostly for use by developers. So, when you install a Linux distribution with a graphical interface, it generally looks like what a developer might want. In addition, it performs similar to how many UNIX workstations work, which can seem slow.

In this article, we continue to look at the Linux desktop in a different light. Here, we think of it as a computer system with a fast interface that we can optimize for the knowledge worker and consumer.
CentOS How To Install Qmailtoaster (CentOS 5.3)
Post date: June 19, 2009, 05:06 Category: Installing Views: 820 Comments: 0
Tutorial quote: Qmailtoaster is a project that aims to make the installation of Qmail onto RPM based systems a snap. All of the packages are distributed in source RPMs so building the packages for your particular distro and architecture is as easy as running a script or a simple command for each package. The RPMs have all of the needed and commonly asked for patches included so you can have a mail server up and running in about an hour. When it's all complete, you'll have a full Qmail mail server installation ready for just about anything. I personally run Qmailtoaster servers for other companies and ISPs who have tens of thousands of users on their systems.
