Linux Newsletter for 10/18/2002

Dear Reader,

I have four great articles to show you for this month's O'Reilly Linux DevCenter review--just in case you missed them the first time around...

Gentoo Linux Reloaded
Over the past year, Gentoo Linux has grown from a niche distribution into something of a phenomenon in the Linux world. In this article, Gentoo Linux chief architect Daniel Robbins explains what Gentoo Linux is all about, describing the good things found in Gentoo Linux 1.4.

Securing Linux: Why It's Worthwhile and Achievable
Michael Bauer, author of "Building Secure Servers with Linux," explains some of the reasons why it's both possible and worthwhile to secure Linux for use as an Internet server platform.

SpamShield: A Perl-Based Spam Filter for sendmail
As soon as system administrators finish building roadblocks to spam, spammers find ways to knock them down. This article focuses on one viable solution to spam, SpamShield 1.40--a Perl-based spam filter for sendmail. Learn how it works and how to install and configure it on your server.

See you next month!
