RAMBOOT with continuous rsync synchronization

Posted Yesterday at 11:55 AM by IsaacKuo

RAMBOOT is an initrd hack that loads the entire OS partition in RAM, making it run like an extremely fast SSD, at the expense of perhaps 1.5+GB of RAM.

Previously I described RAMBOOT using a compressed OS tarball. This is good for boot time, but it takes time to create a new tarball. This new How-To takes a different approach - simply copying an entire directory tree using piped tar commands (cp won't work because of the limited initrd environment). This increases boot time, but allows...

More upgrades

Posted 07-19-2017 at 05:34 PM by zaivala

Well, let's see, there was a life upgrade. I got married in November. I gave the X130e to my wife, and last month upgraded her to a T430 like mine.

My machine is now running ferenOS as the main distro. Great configuration is the main thing, being built on top of LinuxMint 18.2 helps. Secondary distro is SolusOS -- while Solus is still struggling with things like my printer and using a 3rd-party office package, I have my best Kodi configuration there. And just for fun I trotted out...

Motioneyeos

Posted 07-15-2017 at 07:03 PM by peonuser

Motioneyeos can turn a Raspberry Pi into an ip camera.

Normally I am not fond of canned software, but this one might be an exception. Motioneyeos is a raspberry pi implementation for the program Motion. Motion is software to control video capture devices. All control is done via the web. For purposes of this project we used an original raspberry pi. (https://github.com/ccrisan/motioneyeos/releases). There are several releases depending on the unit you have.

Minor but significant fix/tweak on GTK3's "clearlooks", getting away with excessive padding

Posted 07-14-2017 at 07:39 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)

I'm not a maintainer of this theme, this is a fix I did just for myself. Perhaps the theme's owners wouldn't even agree with it being a "fix".

GTK3's clearlooks had significantly more wasted space than its GTK2 predecessor. I guess it's due to the fad of "mobile first" design.

It's not that hard to make them more similar in this regard, all it requires is to open the CSS file and reduce several of the "padding" values.

Everyday Shortcuts

Posted 07-14-2017 at 04:33 PM by rtmistler

A recent blog posting highlighted to me a former shortcut.

This one is supposed to be fun and not "in your face", or "I'm smarter than you!", just some stuff that comes to mind over the years. Oddly enough, sometimes I comment about these things, to people my age, and they have no idea about them. You'd figure ... but then again, I guess we all have variations in our teachings and life experiences. I guess I also had good math teachers.

These are...
