Rafal Milecki is reworking the backlight device class. Apparently, tons of strange configurations are cropping up, where laptops have multiple monitors attached in different ways, and the current code is just not cutting it anymore. He's been considering how best to rewrite the whole thing. Henrique de Moraes Holschuh also is very interested in the idea of doing this, and the two of them seem to be getting into it together. Richard Purdie, the current backlight code maintainer, so far is not...

The rise of increasingly variable document types, combined with the scalability issues associated with Web applications, has led many in the Web developer community to push for NoSQL, a variety of solutions that are united only in their rejection of the relational database model. The term itself was coined in 2009 by Eric Evans, who wanted to describe the collection of non-relational tools that were rising in popularity.

Linux Troubleshooting, Part II Local Network Last month, I discussed localhost troubleshooting, and this month, I extend troubleshooting to your local network. Find out why shawn can't talk to bill. This column is the second in a series dedicated to one of my favorite subjects troubleshooting. Because my column is generally aimed more at tips and tricks and less on philosophy and design, I'm not going to talk much about overall approaches to problem solving. Instead, in this series, I describe...

This month, we focus on software development. Thankfully, for those of us not terribly gifted in such endeavors, Linux allows a rather wide definition of the subject. Although it may not allow for my flavor of soft development (sculpting mashed potatoes), it does include anything from shell scripting to Web pages, and kturtle to binary If you're fed up with all the existing programming languages and you want something completely new, you may want to look at Dirk Elmendorf's interview with Rich...

Structure of a Mongoose-Based Server A Mongoose-based server provides a main function that parses command-line arguments, initializes the Mongoose library and then spins in a loop waiting for an exit event. The command-line arguments are server-specific but typically represent values to be passed to the Mongoose library through the mg_set_option function. Mongoose initialization requires creating an initial Mongoose context, setting library options and establishing callback functions for...
