Linux Journal Issue #188/December 2009

If last month's Infrastrucuture issue was too "big" for you then try on this month's Embedded issue. Find out how to use Player for programming mobile robots, build a humidity controller for your root cellar, find out how to reduce the boot time of your embedded system, and if you're new to embedded systems find out the basics that go into one. You can also read about the Beagle Board, the Mesh Potato and a spate of other interestingly named items. And along with our regular columns don't miss our new monthly column: Economy Size Geek.

How Do I download Archives?

I am a subscriber to magazine [hard copy] and registered a user account but the archives do not seem easily accessable

Not Downloadable

The archives are not meant for download, they're meant for online viewing. If you want a local copy the best thing to do would be to get our Archive CD.

Ok, but what about for

Ok, but what about for subscribers of both the hard-copy and digital download bundle-pack? I didn't download last month's until this month's email came, so now I can't figure out how to get last month's issue.


See your subscription account

Goto your subscription account and login, then look for the digital downloads link.

Cool! Thanks. That worked

Cool! Thanks. That worked great!

I had previously found the URL, but didn't realize that the "Digital Downloads" was the right link. That url is a little heavily biased towards subscription renewal on first visit. Even clicking on the Digital Downloads link (hidden in that rather tiny menu at the bottom of the page) doesn't visually change the page enough. It's dominated by the LJ-number/Zip-Code explanation, so the relatively subtle mid-page sub-title change seems a lot like those "Find Six Differences in These Two Pictures" games from the Saturday funny papers :)

But, then, difficulty in finding the proper Login/Download link for the Digital Downloads is a charge that could also be fairly leveled at another Linux publication (of the "Pro" persuasian, in the USA at least), too.

Luckily, the Linux Journal magazine issues are awesome, once the heiroglyphics are decoded to get it!

Thanks much to you and the Linux Journal staff for all the hard work!

will see what can be done

Linux Management with Red Hat Satellite: Measuring Business Impact and ROI

Linux has become a key foundation for supporting today's rapidly growing IT environments. Linux is being used to deploy business applications and databases, trading on its reputation as a low-cost operating environment. For many IT organizations, Linux is a mainstay for deploying Web servers and has evolved from handling basic file, print, and utility workloads to running mission-critical applications and databases, physically, virtually, and in the cloud. As Linux grows in importance in terms of value to the business, managing Linux environments to high standards of service quality — availability, security, and performance — becomes an essential requirement for business success.

White Paper
Private PaaS for the Agile Enterprise

If you already use virtualized infrastructure, you are well on your way to leveraging the power of the cloud. Virtualization offers the promise of limitless resources, but how do you manage that scalability when your DevOps team doesn’t scale? In today’s hypercompetitive markets, fast results can make a difference between leading the pack vs. obsolescence. Organizations need more benefits from cloud computing than just raw resources. They need agility, flexibility, convenience, ROI, and control.

Stackato private Platform-as-a-Service technology from ActiveState extends your private cloud infrastructure by creating a private PaaS to provide on-demand availability, flexibility, control, and ultimately, faster time-to-market for your enterprise.
