There was an article a few weeks ago about the newer iPods and how Apple changed the crypto hash for them which made them incompatible with current versions of Linux software. Well, there has been a lot of work to make them functional under Linux, and now here's a quick How-To on getting these fixes installed on your Gutsy installation.
The Secure Shell (SSH) network protocol makes it easy to connect computers that are running Linux, share files, and remotely run applications. Along with an X server, it can make sharing a single computer simple on a home network.
While the world of Linux is going crazy over the new Ubuntu 7.10, I’m going to step backward to review a distro which is based on the Ubuntu 7.04. The name is Ubuntu ME. It is a free/open source operating system dedicated to Muslims, with customized features such as a Quran study tool and a web content filtering utility. Now why am I doing a review on a Muslim-based distribution while in fact I am a devout Christian?
The release of Gutsy has broken the record for the most user on-line at the Ubuntu Forums.
I wanted to outline instructions on how to upgrade from Ubuntu 7.04 to Ubuntu 7.10. The upgrade steps try to be very user friendly and can be done without any manual “command line trickery”. Upgrading using these methods are only supported for machines currently running Ubuntu 7.04.
In case you missed the flurry of release announcements, Ubuntu 7.10 (sometimes known to its friends as Gutsy Gibbon) has been released.
Anway, check out the following announcement for the news:
I will admit to being a Linux desktop nonbeliever. It feels a bit like yesterday's battle fought with the wrong weapons: geekiness rather than ease of use. There's a chance--still a slim one, but a chance nonetheless--that Ubuntu will change that.
A while back I posted about my top 10 feature requests for Gutsy on the Ubuntu Forums. Gutsy has brought some great new features to Ubuntu many of which I did not include in my original top 10 feature requests but if I was to do it again I probably would.
If you haven't heard of StumbleUpon you are probably still a very productive person. If you want to make your time wasting sessions slightly more efficient, you can use the keyboard to stumble instead of clicking the Stumble! button.
Well, that time has finally come, and the latest release of Ubuntu, version 7.10, codenamed “Gutsy Gibbon” is finally out, officially, for real, as certified personally by members of the release team on IRC! Please use bittorrent to download it if possible, as the server load is immense (as you can imagine). Detailed torrent info with hashes is available here.
Tomorrow is the launch of Ubuntu 7.10. We have taken a look at all the cool features that make 7.10 so cool, we come to the best feature of all: the community.

Since publishing our Ubuntu power tests, where we had monitored the power consumption of the past six Ubuntu releases going back two years on a laptop, we've had repeated requests for a power comparison between Windows and different Linux distributions. Well, in this article are the first set of results from that testing. We've compared the power consumption of Microsoft Windows XP, Windows Vista, Fedora 7, and Ubuntu 7.10.
The Ubuntu team is proud to announce version 7.10 of the Ubuntu family of distributions.
Wget is so flexible you’ve probably been using it for years without knowing it, many scripts use it because it is a boilerplate method of grabbing files, it will even automatically retry under certain circumstances…
This screencast comprehensively details how to play media (movies and DVDs) in Ubuntu. In this screencast we cover:-
Every time Ubuntu installs a new Linux kernel, the old one is left behind. This means that if you are regularly updating an Ubuntu system the Grub boot menu becomes longer and longer with kernels you don’t need anymore.
Shakespeare said, “a rose by any other name would smell as sweet.” That may be true (although Bart Simpson once quipped, “not if you called them stink blossoms” and he may have a point). But what about visual identities? Would Batman be the same if it was done ala South Park? Or, for something a bit closer to home, would Ubuntu be the same if it looked like OSX? Sure, it would likely run the same, but would our reaction to it, and the reaction of newcomers, be the same?
As we close in on the 7.10 release, today we take a look at NTFS writing, the ability for our Ubuntu machines to write to NTFS formatted partitions, primarily those of Windows XP and Vista.
But couldn’t I do this in previous versions of Ubuntu?
Nope! What you could do was see your Windows NTFS drives but not write to them. This is useful for getting data off the computer, for such things as the awesome Migration Assistant but not much use to those who use both OSes on a regular basis.
