May 2012 Lua Article Problems

The lua examples in the May 2012 article "Object-Oriented Programming with Lua" do not seem to work as presented in either version 5.4.1 or 5.2. In particular using:

function, o) local p = o or {x=0, y=0} return p end

and the print method given. Then using:

p1 ={x=10, y=10})


Gives (0,0) instead of (10,10). more>>

Problem with ad on page 31 (October 2011 issue - PDF version)


The ad on page 31 crashes a few of my PDF viewers (Kindle and my non-FOSS iPad). The same page also took a long time to render on my laptop.

Deleting the page from the PDF file fixed the problem, but it'd be nice if I don't have to do this.

Does anybody know if I can somehow convert issues from my LJ archive cd to Kindle format? I have Calibre, but not sure if this can be done.


June Issue - 194

Good Day All-

I just got my June issue of Linux journal and had to bring it to the office on the mere fact that Gentoo Linux did *not* make it on the cover yet Arch Linux did.


So can anyone tell me what distro is the one between Ubuntu and Debian on the front cover?

Some dude at the office said this was the Novell logo?

Say what!?!?

May 2010, Issue #193

No coverage of LinuxMCE vs. XBMC and MythTV? I know LJ is covering LMCE in the whole house management project area, but still, it's set up for media center use too. I'm surprised it wasn't mentioned.

May 2009 - issue 181 - 8mm film conversion


I was very excited to see the feature article on converting 8mm film as my wife has a box containing over 50 of them produced by her parents in the late 60's. Wow, would I ever score a lot of brownie points if I could convert them all to DVD for her!!! :) more>>

March 2009 Bill Childers OpenSim article page 76

It will not run all the way on my ASUS Eee PC 901 running the latest Kubuntu with the Adam's kernel. I can't run SL either. Adapt says I have version 2.8 of SQLITE but the OpenSim README.txt says version 3 is required. I can't find version 3 in my repository's. I also had to apt-get nant. When the OpenSim config runs, it doesn't ask any questions. Any one have an idea?

White Paper
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.
