what should I do to deny access for certain users to bash (local and via ssh) ?
|Kinda OT: Looking for a Sharp Zaurus SL-5600
I'm looking to get a new PDA and decided to get a Zaurus. I have been a long time Palm user and with my Zire71 broken, I think the SL-5600 is a nice upgrade. PalmOne is just not keeping up with the pack
in terms of hardware specs and there is no way
I would get a PocketPC.
Anyone have an idea of where I can pick one up new? I rather not get one used but if that's my only option, so be it =]
|Enterprise Grade Linux
I'm interested in seeing what the major Linux vendors are trying to push as their enterprise/uber-server grade distros. Trying to find them has been a bit of a bummer so far though, distrowatch didn't much beyond RHEL and its free clones. Does SuSE have a "big-business server" distro out yet? I know Novell just released their version of desktop Linux, is their server offering out yet?
I know that as an individual user, I will never ever in a billion years need the stuff that enterprise grade OSes offer, and that if I wanted my own server I'd be much better off doing an LFS system. I'm just curious to see what's being pushed as the "big box" versions of Linux.
|Novell Linux Desktop
Novell released their "Novell Linux Desktop 9". Basically a refined Suse 9.1 Pro with SLES goodies, and some refinements geared for business use. Here's the Link: http://www.novell.com/products/desktop/index.html?sourceidint=productsmenu_nld_top
Also, something OMG WAY COOL
for those of us managing more than one desktop, you can run the NLD installer via vnc from a browser
. Running an install via VNC is cool in it's own right, and something you can do with other distros/OSes, but including a Java applet so you can just use a browser is way, way cool. Just add VNC=1 as a flag before booting the installer.
Anyway, I have a screenshot of installing (heh, bear with me here) NLD 9 on a Virtual Machine using VMware. The host OS is Suse 9 :). The browser is Konqueror, and yeah, it works great. ( Collapse )
Anyone checked out fedora 3 yet (just came out)? Any word on it? If not I'm goign to get it and I'll fill everyone in once I have it, but I'd like ot hear somehting about it before I go full tilt, if the information is out there.
|Email Client Recommendation?
I'm using RH7.3 with KDE 3.0.0-10, I just migrated my internet connection from a Wintel, and I'm looking for an email client reasonably similar to what I was using under Windoze. The clients that came with the distribution all have multiple POP accounts tying into a single SMTP account, but I want to keep my accounts totally separate, each having its own POP and SMTP servers.
Can someone recommend an email client that fits this description?
Thanks in advance.
