I've had several people ask me what I think the best, top, most user friendly, ultimate, and so on distribution is--so now I'm publishing my Top 10 Linux Distributions in reverse order of preference. Ease of installation, commercial support, community support, updates, administrative tools, stability, performance, and to a lesser extent--their ranking on [URL="http://www.distrowatch.com"]DistroWatch.com[/URL]. 10. [URL="http://www.novell.com"]SuSE[/URL] (SLED, [URL="http://www.opensuse.org"]OpenSuSE[/URL], etc.) - This bottom spot belongs to Novell's Linux offerings mostly due to the commercial version's lackluster performance and overall updatedness (if that's a word). SuSE Linux seems to be a bit behind the curve for updated hardware drivers. Though it's community-supported …

I'm trying to connect to my Fedora machine using my SSH PEM Key. I've added the key to .ssh/authorized_keys and am still getting promted for a password. The machine can connect to other machine's with the key, but not my Fedora one. I've setup CentOS to accept SSH Keys but I believe this is my first time for Fedora, maybe there's an extra something I'm missing. I uncommented these lines in /etc/ssh/sshd_config and still no luck :( : RSAAuthentication yes PubkeyAuthentication yes AuthorizedKeysFile .ssh/authorized_keys AuthorizedKeysCommand none AuthorizedKeysCommandRunAs nobody

For an assignment in a computer programming class, we have to install 3 linux distributions on one machine from three different trees. I chose to install Ubuntu, Fedora, and OpenSUSE. I already dual-boot Ubuntu and Windows 7, but I'm not sure about the partitioning. I have 460GB of space in my Windows partition (sda1), and 15GB in my Ubuntu partition (sda2), and was wondering how to go about partitioning for two more OSs (creating sda3 and sda4). I have 240GB of free space in my windows partition, and don't want to lose any data. I have backed up everything currently …

I was writing a makefile for a web interface program that installs the cgi scripts to a (Linux) OS. The makefile works fine, but it needs to be able to install to different directories for different distributions (Fedora, Ubuntu). On Fedora, the scripts need to go to /var/www/cgi-bin and on Ubuntu, I believe it is /usr/lib/www/cgi-bin. When I run uname -n on Ubuntu, it outputs "ubuntu", but on Fedora, it gives a combination of the username, computer name, and "hostname". Does anyone have any idea how to determine the distribution in a makefile? Thanks

I have installed a variety of programs onto my machine, and I can run them in terminal i.e. python, python3, vim.... However they do not show up in the Applications drop menu in the top left corner. I am using yum install... to install the programs. Am I missing a step or should I be going about this differently? Thanks

Hello all, I have python 2.6 installed, i can see it in /usr/bin and I can run it in terminal. I cannot however seem to figure out how to open the Idle, or get the program to show in the redhat drop menu. Kinda new to linux (some ubuntu use, never had a problem that I could not solve reading other threads) but this is over 10 hours of trouble shooting and fedora is too cool to give up. I am sure that it is just my ultra nube mind set holding me back. Any thoughts? moe my specs I …

It was exactly one year ago today that I published my original "[URL="http://www.daniweb.com/news/story219749.html"]The 10 Best Linux Distributions[/URL]" and it's time to put forth a new list for this year's best. Without looking at the old list, I've decided to compile this one from scratch. This 2009 list takes several factors into account for placement in the list: Community support, commercial support, software variety, update engine and distribution frequency. Even for old Linux salts, there are a few surprises on this list. For starters, Ubuntu is not number one. The problem with this list is that I don't hate any of …

Last night while watching my usual list of recorded television programs, I saw a commercial for [URL="http://www.kgb.com"]KGB[/URL], the company that begs you to text them with your questions. For a mere 99 cents, they'll answer any question that you ask of them. I'm sure that they have their share of tricksters with questions such as, "What is life" and "What is the air speed of an unladen swallow." But my mind dances to a different beat. And, with my wife's permission, I posed the following question using her cell phone: "Which Linux distribution is the best for new users?" As …

All Spins are available in 32-bit and 64-bit format. There are …

I currently run a website at www.domain1.com which happily points to my server not a problem. This server (Fedora Core 10) runs Apache, PHP etc the full LAMP setup. I now want to run www.domain2.com from this server too. As I understand it i can do this with Virtual Hosts. Most of the tutorials I have found so far have been more confusing than helpful. Could someone tell me if my assumtion is corect, and either point me in the right direction or post a sample httpd.conf file please. Thanks in advance, Aiden.

If you dual-boot Vista and Fedora or Ubuntu then Thunderbird email client can use a common email box for both operating systems. If you already have an email account set up on one of the operating systems, such as Vista, then open Thunderbird, select Tools --> Account Settings, then click the Local Folders link on the left side of the screen. On the right side you will see the current location of the email files under Local Directory. Write that down someplace so that you can reference it while booted in Fedora. Now close Vista and boot to Fedora (or …

Prejudices and opinions aside, at some point in your career you'll be asked to select a viable Linux distribution for your corporate network. How will you choose? Will you use the same distribution that you use at home or will you do some research and find something that's corporate-ready? Are you up to the task? Do you know what to look for in a distribution to support a corporate environment? Here are 5 ways to decide on a Linux distribution for your corporate network. [B]1.

I've been in discussions with a group of other writers, Linux distribution watchers, Linux community leaders and developers in the past few days concerning Linux commercial vs. Linux community versions and some of us came to the conclusion that [URL="http://www.fedoraproject.org"]Fedora[/URL]'s relevance has waned. In fact, it might be time to scrap it completely. Or maybe it's time for [URL="http://www.redhat.com"]Red Hat[/URL] to step up and support it formally and unconditionally. Fedora is the only major community Linux edition that has no commercial support option from its commercial benefactor. Even OpenSolaris has commercial support from [URL="http://www.sun.com"]Sun[/URL]. This brings me to the question, …

I placed Fedora at number 7 in my [URL="http://www.daniweb.com/blogs/entry3322.html"]10 Best Linux Distributions[/URL] post but now that I've seen Fedora 10, I may have to reorder the list and place Fedora at number 5 or 6.

Its full list of new and improved features are: 1) Faster Boot Process 2) New Artwork …
