Security Enhanced Linux (SE Linux) now is the default configuration for an installation of Fedora Core 3 (FC3). When you install FC3, you have the option of turning off SE Linux. Alternatively, you can turn it off manually after it has been installed. In FC2, SE Linux was not installed by default but was an option offered during the installation process, where you had to supply selinux as a parameter to the boot loader.

linuxhardware.org: AMD comes to us today with two new processors, the Athlon 64 4000+ and the Athlon 64 FX-55. These new processors are released to assure that AMD holds their position as the king of processors as we demonstrated in our last review. We have one of these processors in our lab today, the Athlon 64 4000+, and we'll show you what it has to offer over the previous top Athlon 64 CPU. Also in this review we bring to you two firsts, a look at an NVIDIA nForce3 Ultra chipset motherboard under Linux and a look at how the top Pentium 4 processors handle Doom 3 under Linux. With so much to cover, let's get started.

In our last article we gave you a glimpse at ABIT's latest Socket 939 Athlon 64 motherboard, the ABIT AV8. This board features the latest VIA chipset, the VIA K8T800 Pro, and it performed very well against the latest Intel had to offer. We now want to take a closer look at this board and show you what it has to offer Linux users as their next potential upgrade. In this review, we'll be covering the features of the K8T800 Pro chipset, all of this board's specific features, and Linux support of the board and its components. Read More...

Our preliminary look at Intel's 64-bit Xeon 3.6GHz Nocona (which happens to be identical to the Intel 3.6F Pentium 4) stirred up a bit of controversy. The largest two concerns were: We tested Intel's Xeon server processor against an Athlon desktop CPU. We chose poor benchmarks to illustrate the capabilities of those processors.  Read More...

Samba beats Windows

Samba 3 runs rings around Windows Server 2003 in file serving performance
Roger Howorth, IT Week

Tests by IT Week Labs show the latest version of the open-source Samba file and print server software is 2.5 times faster than Windows Server 2003 in the same role.

The news comes as many firms are grappling with the consequences of Microsoft ending support for NT4, coupled with uncertainty about when Microsoft will next update Windows. The performance difference between Windows Server 2003 and Samba 3 has increased dramatically compared with Samba 2 and Windows 2000 Server.
