PCLinuxOS Magazine Releases Initial Issue!

Normally, I don’t like to rehash the news. However, in this case, I’m a member of the contributors and the admin/webmaster of both development sites for the magazine…I feel a bit inclined to let everyone know about it ūüėÄ

“It is my privilege to announce on behalf of the team members of the PCLinuxOS Magazine Project sponsored by MyPCLinuxOS.com, the September 2006 introductory issue is available for download! We’ve put a lot of
effort into producing a quality magazine made for the community, by the community.

Contained inside are many articles written for the
PCLinuxOS community and a few for those interested but not yet using
it. Some highlights include:

  1. An interview with Susan Linton of Tuxmachines.org
  2. An RPM Tutorial for beginning users
  3. Hunting rootkits with Rootkithunter on PCLinuxOS
  4. Much, Much more!

Please note that the magazine is released under the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs 2.5 license unless otherwise stated on the articles themselves. By
downloading this magazine you must acknowledge and accept this license agreement.

We’ve released the magazine in two versions in pdf format. We designed the magazine for viewing in KPDF but other viewers will work as well. The two formats of the magazine are Viewer Default (VD) and Presentation Mode (PM). Viewer default will display the magazine in the default mode your reader is setup with and Presentation
Mode starts in full screen.


PCLinuxOS Editor-In-Chief, Archie, has further explanation of the downloads:

“The following files are best viewed in KPDF. Other readers, such as Adobe¬†Reader, Ghostview, XPDF can also be used. The following instruction is based¬†on using KPDF.

PCLinuxOS_Mag_200609_PM.pdf is initially in presentation. Moving pages forward is as easy as clicking the left mouse button. To go back a page, the user just right-click the mouse button. And exiting the Presentation Mode is not harder than pressing the ESC key.

A user can also hover the mouse cursor on the top of the screen and there will¬†appear some navigation buttons. On the top left-hand side are the blue¬†forward and back buttons; on the right-hand side is the exit button.”
