Ghost for Linux is a hard disk and partition imaging and cloning tool similar to "Norton Ghost"(c) and (tm) by Symantec. The created images are optionally compressed, and they can be stored on a local hard drive or transferred to an anonymous FTP server. A drive can be cloned using the "Click'n'Clone" function. g4l supports file splitting if the local filesystem does not support writing files >2GB. The included kernel supports ATA, serial-ATA, and SCSI drives. Common network cards are supported. It is packaged as a bootable CD image with an ncurses GUI for easy use.

The KDE Project today announced the immediate availability of KDE 3.5.3, a maintenance release for the latest generation of the most advanced and powerful free desktop for GNU/Linux and other UNIXes. Unusually for a maintenance release, new features were implemented due to the long release cycle of the eagerly-awaited KDE 4. Stability and speed were also improved, along with increasingly complete translations in 65 languages.

With the launch of the NVIDIA 1.0-8762 proprietary Linux display drivers last week, it has marked the end of the road for the Linux/Solaris/FreeBSD 1.0-8XXX drivers. While we probably will not see the NVIDIA Linux 1.0-9XXX series at an earliest until August or September -- the Windows ForceWare 91.28 Beta drivers had come out last week -- we have decided to do a recap of these recent NVIDIA drivers. We have re-tested the 1.0-8174, 1.0-8178, 1.0-8756, and the newest 1.0-8762 drivers and have put them through an array of benchmarks. We have also recapped the changes for these drivers through the various releases.

Last year we had taken an in-depth look at ATI's PowerPlay technology upon the support within the Linux fglrx display drivers. Now that Fedora Core 5 has been out for some time, and there have been quite a few monthly releases since that point, we are now back today as we re-examine ATI's PowerPlay using once again the Mobility RADEON X300. In this examination, we will also be using additional benchmarks beyond what was done in our original benchmarking fiesta, and we will be examining its power consumption when using the AC adapter and simply not the battery.

Ok, very small/few changes in the last week, it seems everybody is off on vacation. All the better.

The shortlog/diffstat tell the story: a few one-liners, another ipv6 deadlock fixed, some sysctl and /proc fixes.

Have fun,

On December 5, a mere seventeen days ago, Linux gamers and enthusiasts were greeted by NVIDIA's Rel80 display driver launch for Linux. In the 1.0-8174 release was initial support for NVIDIA Scalable Link Interface (SLI) as well as the new nvidia-xconfig utility, similar to ATI's aticonfig tool they had unveiled months prior

? To start with, these new NVIDIA Linux 1.0-8174 drivers feature a great deal of improvements from GeForce 6100/6150 support to the new nvidia-xconfig utility. As expected, these driver features are quite similar to what we had shared with our readers over two months ago in our NVIDIA 1.0-8XXX series preview article but unfortunately there are always a few features that didn't make their way into this release. Of course, the major feature is the ability to now run Scalable Link Interface under Linux. This article will focus primarily on the advantages of the 1.0-8174 drivers over that of the 1.0-7XXX series, and more specifically the 1.0-7676 release
