Changing the default keyboard on Ubuntu 12.04 Live CD

Posted 10-30-2012 at 08:07 AM by avarus (Tim's Bio-Linux tips)

Hi,

This isn't a user tip - as you can probably see I didn't do very well keeping up on those. Instead here's a rather technical and long-winded commentary about what is going on regarding setting the default keyboard on the Ubuntu 12.04 Live CD, from a British perspective. This is important to me because I use the customised Bio-Linux Live USB stick image for teaching purposes, and I use it in UK academic labs. If the first thing I have to do in each course is to get the students...

Running a free Gentoo

Posted 10-29-2012 at 04:52 PM by hydraMax (Bits and Pixels)

Gentoo is overall a great distribution, but unfortunately it is not dedicated to free software with the same determination as distributions like Trisquel and gNewSense. If you have been running Gentoo for a while, but are not familiar with this issue, you may be surprise to learn how much non-free software is in your system, from application software to the kernel.

The offset to this, however, is that built-in Gentoo mechanisms make it very easy to change this configuration, so as...

Pi projects expand.

Found an image to allow the Raspberry Pi act as a thin client for ltsp. You do not have to put the arm arch on the server. X86 client runs in a virtual machine. Works fine with our U-10.04 ltsp server.

Found an Android image for the Raspberry Pi, but have not tested it.

Wanted to make a Raspberry Pi pc, but ran into legacy hardware problems.

Downloaded and ran CosmoPBX in a virtual machine. Was able to get ekiga to connect to it without a problem.

Mythtv box somehow had a capacitor broke partly off. Desoldered the cap and bought a replacement. Will have to install the new capacitor.

Finally got the raspberry pi. Made a power adapter that would use the power supply from the Nslu2 with a cheap one dollar micro usb adapter from Frys. That worked.

Install debian for raspberry pi. Installed a...

Haskell shell scripting!

Posted 10-25-2012 at 11:19 AM by hydraMax (Bits and Pixels)

Practical shell scripting AND full-fledged Haskell functional programming at the same time!? Is it really possible to have your cake and eat it too!? I'm sweating with excitement at my recent discovery.

Not only is it possible, but there is a well-developed module that allows you to do shell like programming with Haskell, without losing any of the benefits of the language:
