Spain unveils supercomputer plans

Spain has unveiled plans to build the world's second most powerful computer. The supercomputer will be able to process 40 teraflops - 40 trillion calculations per second, equivalent to 18,000 personal computers.


It will use the Linux operating system, the government said.
Looks like SGI/Cray are starting to lose to Linux.
I don't recall this being posted during my time here, so forgive me if this has been posted already at some point.

A long time ago, at an installation far, far away...

Current Mood: amused
Warning: Linux Newb!
So, i am having a small problem.

I have been an avid windows supporter for a long time, but now, i am getting more involved with the network security community. So i decided that i need to learn linux as it is much more secure in comparison. Anyway, so i partitioned my windows xp box with an ext and a ntfs partition using partition magic. It was an exciting experience. Anywho, i downloaded fedora from the muc.edu distrobution site, and began installing. The install finished, and it began to reboot so i went to the bathroom. When i got back all i saw was "GRUB>" Having no experience with grub, i have no idea what to do. I know that my grub.conf file isn't where it is supposed to be. But i don't know what else to do from there.

Any help would be much appreciated.
if you are up to it, My Aim name is: joey18k

Thanks, and i'm excited to join this community.
Firefox Theme Changing
I tried to install a new theme into Mozilla Firefox 0.8, and somehow b0rked it. Uhm, how can I change the theme back to default without starting up Firefox?
Could somebody please elucidate...
XFree86 4.4 has just been released and I wanna upgrade. However, according to slashdot, XFree's new license is bad. Xfree's own site claims RMS gives the new license a thumbs up.

Can somebody please tell me if I should feel guilty for upgrding or not...

Current Mood: confused
barcode scanners and Linux
At work we utilize those Symbol PS/2 barcode scanners on PC's in our warehouse. If I understand how they work correctly, once you program the scanner with the type of base encoding you are using, it just is inputting like any other PS/2 device into whatever active field is on the screen. No drivers needed, etc. Can I use these scanners on Linux? If so, how?

So, we have like 10 PC's that are doing this. All are PIII/600's running Win 98 (I inhertied SO MUCH FUN from my predecessor). That's all they are used for. Terminal emulation to an IBM iSeries so they can scan in stuff for shipping and recieiving.

Instead of sending Billy and his Fascist Fun Gang in Redmond roughly $1500.00 for the pleasure of "upgrading" those 10 machines to 2000 or XP, I would much rather move them to Linux.

If you are wondering why I want to get rid of 98, well... we all know about it's legendary stability :).

And to be honest, those folks could GREATLY benefit from the stability of Linux. Since they only use one app, and that app is available for Linux from IBM, I'm set.

If you have any experience with this, please let me know :)
