Hi, everyone!. I just created this blog to share knowledge about open source software and Linux. If you all have knowledge and info related to open source / Linux, please share or send me an email. Thanks ^_^
Some say "which one is better?". This is my opinion and suggestion. There are base on Red Hat Linux. For my experience its easy to get the purpose or objective for this Linux to be implement. More peoples and websites suggesting the server purpose to be using by CentOS because it is an enterprise level OS based on Red Hat and for Fedora it is mostly for testing bed and more on user Desktop purpose. Fedora is bleeding edge and potentially unstable by design. For this reason, now you can easily define what is the best choice for you desktop or server.
Last day, my boss ask me to install one IDS for our office. He just say "Please install the open source product". After seek on the internet for whole day, I found the EasyIDS. I have tested on my office's PC with details:
Pentium 4 2.8ghz 512MB DDR-RAM 40GB Hard disk 2 Network interface card (10/100baseT) 52X CD-ROM
2. The download file is on ISO type which mean you can burn it to CD.
3. After burn on the CD, I just install the software with the CD-ROM boot first. You can setting the CD-ROM boot first in your BIOS setting.
4. I just follow the step by step until finish.
5. After it restart and update the patches, it display tty1 as the default with the black and white screen. You can login as root here.
6. After the EasyIDS properly setup you can go to another PC and open the browser. Type http://youreasyIDS. Its will popup the username and password. The default login is admin and the password is password.
7. After login, you see the interface base on ACID which some people call php-acid. This interface is easy to administrating the EasyIDS. I'm so glad this kind of software have develop by open source community. Thanks.
Relatively new application that has found its way into recent versions of almost all Linux distributions is Tomboy. It is in cross-indexing tool and a quick publisher all rolled into one. Tomboy is also very addictive and easy to use, and does away with the hassle of naming files and remembering the directory paths. It is an evolving application and the latest release is still at version 0.6.
To start: 1. Go to Application --> Accessories --> Tomboy Notes, which lunched Tomboy as an applet on your panel. Once lunched it remains active and you can access your note quickly from the applet icon till you log out or quit the applet.
2. To give automatic lunched Tomboy every time you boot the system; you can use this guide (for gnome): - right-clicking on an empty space on the panel and selecting the 'Add to Panel' option. Once you have 'Add to Panel' window up, select the Tomboy Notes application and click the 'Add' button to add it in your panel.
