Download Fedora 11!

I have to tell you, Fedora is still the best Linux out there.  It’s so good, even this blog itself runs on a Fedora server.  I know there’s stuff like Ubuntu but Fedora has always been at the top of my list for Linux.  (Before that, I used to favor RedHat but Fedora is basically the open-source version of RedHat after they went commercial.)

Anyways, download Fedora 11 here and screenshots: (via lifehacke

However, none of this is necessary for the purposes of this article. To start testing balance, download the latest version from the project’s Web site. Unpack it, build it, and install it as follows:

Web DIY – How to Setup Load Balancing Linux Web Servers!

Here’s a good DIY for webmasters looking to expand their websites to handle more traffic with load balancing linux web servers. I have been looking into load-balancing even this site as it’s getting too big to manage with a single server.

All the software required to implement a LAMP cluster ships with most Linux distributions, so it’s easy to implement. We’ll construct a cluster using seven computers for a fictitious company, foo.com. Two servers will run DNS, primary and backup, to distribute Web requests among three Web servers that read and write data from

Linux Hack – How to Batch Image Resize!

Well, one of the worst things you can encounter is to individually resize hundreds of images for a future blog post.

I am not sure if Windows or Macs have free software to do this but if you have access to a Linux computer like me, you can get stuff done much faster using Image Magick, a free open-source image auto-resizer also used on many web-platform programs.

I assuming that you have installed Ubuntu Gutsy:

sudo apt-get install imagemagick

Online Storage DIY – How to Synchronize Dropbox and ZumoDrive on Windows

Here’s a good DIY on how to synchronize online-storage services Dropbox and ZumoDrive on Windows.

Since Dropbox is Linux-compatible yet ZumoDrive isn’t, this might be a great way to synchronize the two if you have to use various different machines.

For me, one the the biggest features of Dropbox is the availability on Linux, which ZumoDrive does not offer. On the other hand, ZumoDrive has a client for iPhone, which Dropbox does no

Linux Boot Hack – How to Password Protect GRUB!

If you are a linux user like me, you know the value of being able to password-protect your GRUB entries so even if your whole PC gets stolen, no one should be able to access your valuable, classified data. (or porn?)

When talking of security in computer systems one often needs to analyse the situation one is in and choose the appropriate options. If you have hackers getting physical access to your computer system the GRUB security measures won’t last a second (pretty much nothing would do). Your best bet in such a situation is to keep the hard dr

Linux Hack – How to Turn Linux Box into a Streaming Media Center!

Here’s a quick guide that shows you how to turn your linux box into a streaming media center.  It might be helpful for some of you Linux-addicts (like me).  Some people were complaining this is GUI but heck, GUI is the next step for Linux so it can go more mainstream, no beginners can deal with Linux command prompt, I believe it’s waaay harder than DOS.

This guide assumes that you have a Linux-based computer available and are ready to begin the installation process immediately. If this is not the case, you should set up a Linux-based
