Hey guys, I'm trying to install my own version of python on an HPC without root access so I can use my own packages. So far I am banging my head against the wall and getting nowhere. I actually had my own version of python, numpy, ipython and a couple other packages from source (although numpy wasn't optimized with Lapack or Atlas). I needed h5py, so I got szip and hdf5 from source and installed them and got them up and going. H5py was still complaining and I couldn't find any .so libraries it was looking for (I think I …

Hi! I'm running the latest OpenSuse 11.4. I have knowledge of C++ programming and I think I'm ready to start using graphics. I have downloaded [URL="http://sourceforge.net/projects/alleg/files/allegro/5.0.4/allegro-5.0.4.tar.gz/download"]allegro-5.0.4.tar.gz[/URL], extracted it and tried to include allegro.h file in my C++ code. Here is my testing file for allegro. [CODE]#include <iostream> #include "/Documents/Allegro/include/allegro5/allegro.h" int main(){ cout << "Allegro Y U NO WORK?" << endl; } [/CODE] I get the following error: [CODE]In file included from testin.cpp:2:0: Allegro/include/allegro5/allegro.h:26:27: fatal error: allegro5/base.h: No such file or directory compilation terminated. [/CODE] If you have any advice or a tutorial, please inform me of them.

Well, well, how about that [URL="http://www.dell.com"]Dell[/URL]? In a landmark decision, Dell [URL="http://www.itwire.com/content/view/23052/1231/"]announced[/URL] that it has penned a deal to use [URL="http://www.novell.com"]Novell[/URL]'s SUSE Linux in its data centers to power its new OptiPlex FX 160 thin client systems. Wow. Dell is doing this to save money and simplify its IT infrastructure and requirements. Why is this landmark, you ask? Just over a year ago, I was on assignment to do a story on commercially available Linux from PC vendors such as Dell. I was passed from client service representative to supervisor to sales to...oh, you get the idea. Well, the bottom …

Today, Tuesday November 10, 2009, [URL="http://www.novell.com"]Novell[/URL] announces a Visual Studio plugin that allows support for non-Microsoft operating systems that use .NET code development on a platform known as [URL="http://go-mono.com"]Mono[/URL] via a new product called [URL="http://go-mono.com/monovs/"]Mono Tools for Visual Studio 1.0[/URL]. This is not a cost free toolset. In fact, it's really quite [URL="http://www.go-mono.com/store/"]pricey[/URL]--starting at $99 for the Professional (Individual) version. Of course, compared to the exorbitant price of Visual Studio, that's a mere pittance. If you can afford Mono Tools, it's a powerful addition to your Visual Studio environment. Using Mono Tools, you can create and test your .NET applications …

Since I check my linkbacks religiously, I noticed one of the comments over at [URL="http://www.linsux.org"]linsux.org[/URL] (An anti-Linux rant site) on my recent post, "[URL="http://www.daniweb.com/news/story226405.html"]5 Things You Can Do to Put Linux in the Driver Seat[/URL]" and thought I would share one of the entries with you. He wants us Linux types to stop work on so many disparate distributions and focus on a single one. Is this a good idea or the best idea I've ever heard? He lists a few items, beginning strangely at #6, that he wants Linux fans to cease and desist on but the one that …

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. Commercial Support[/B] - This is a sore subject among some Linux types since most believe …

As I've written before ([URL="http://www.daniweb.com/blogs/entry2335.html"]here[/URL] and [URL="http://www.daniweb.com/blogs/entry4177.html"]here[/URL]), the Linux desktop in danger of extinction. If operating systems could be placed on the Endangered Species list, I'd lobby for it. Perhaps this is a legitmate task for the [URL="http://www.linuxfoundation.org"]Linux Foundation[/URL]: Preserve the Linux desktop. I'm not quite ready to give up on Linux as a Desktop operating system--though I feel that I'm in the minority on this topic that grows mootier by the day. I think there's still a glimmer of hope in the unlikeliest of places: [URL="http://www.linux-mag.com/id/7181"]Schools[/URL]. I know it might sound crazy but it's true. Schools are notoriously cash …

Joe "Zonker"Brockmeier is the Community Manager for openSUSE. He has been involved with Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) since 1996 when he discovered FOSS while a college student and was hooked. For most of his career he has worked as a technology journalist covering Linux and open source topics. Most recently, he was Editor-in-Chief of Linux Magazine prior to joining Novell in February of 2008. I asked him about his role in bringing this release to light and how the open source community drives this type of project. [B]Tell me about your role as openSUSE community manager?[/B] Sure. The …

Add SuSE to the list of operating systems going to be offered by Dell as they ally with Novell and Microsoft to sell their server software. Planning on selling both SuSE SLES (SuSE Linux Enterprise Server) and Microsoft's Windows Server, Dell broadens their offering of solutions, hoping to increase their market as a PC manufacturer and reseller and specially marketing the Novel server software. Another result of this deal is that Microsoft has agreed to stop pursuing Novel for their alleged "patent infringements". Microsoft comes into the whole play as they are developing virtualization solutions, which will allow one to …
