LPC: 25 years of X

,----[ Quote ]
| The X Window System quietly hit its 25th 
| anniversary back in June; it is, undoubtedly, one 
| of the oldest and most successful free software 
| projects in existence. Keith Packard has been 
| working with X for most of that time; at the 
| Linux Plumbers Conference in Portland he used his 
| keynote address to look at the highlights (and 
| lowlights) of those 25 years and some of the 
| lessons that have been learned.

| This article grounds you in the basic Linux 
| commands for manipulating files and directories.

|     * Manipulate multiple files and directories 
|     recursively
|     * Use wildcard patterns for manipulating 
|     files
|     * Use the find command to locate and act on 
|     files based on type, size, or time
|     * Compress and decompress files using gzip 
|     and bzip2
|     * Archive files using tar, cpio and dd


Building Your Own Linux Kernel, part 2

,----[ Quote ]
| But the real motivation for building a kernel is 
| to use your own configuration: add new 
| experimental drivers, get rid of drivers you 
| don't need, and make a lean, mean and fast 
| kernel. Wading through the Linux kernel's 
| multitude of configuration options takes some 
| time, so don't be in a hurry. One way to save 
| time is to develop your own base configuration, 
| and then use this as basis to create new custom 
| kernels.
