Learning again.

Posted 09-21-2012 at 05:24 PM by peonuser

Finally was able to order a rpi. Believe it when I see it. One nice thing about the units is using several memory cards each with a specific purpose. No need to have a zillion units to do what you want. A touch pad is probably the first order of the day. Seen all the rpi diy articles, but none seem to really take advantage of it. Might do my own.

Debugging networking can be so much fun. Set up two virtual machines using Virtual Bbx. One was Debian Wheezy that I wanted to set up an...

Howto enable sudo in Debian

1) Use visudo to edit your sudoers file
2) Add your user to the sudo group
adduser foo sudo
3) Or you can use gksu, or kdesu on KDE.

audio with tv tuner card

Posted 09-19-2012 at 08:12 PM by ted_chou12

I recently got audio with tv card, first must connect a physical wire (red,white,black) from the video tuner card to the mother board or your sound card, then do
modprobe snd-bt87x load_all=1
sox -t alsa hw:1,1 -t alsa hw:0,0
And you should be able to hear the sound as you change through the channels, (if still not, dont forget to max the pcm volume in your mixer options)

Gear To Go Digital Still Camera works with Ubuntu (!)

Posted 09-18-2012 at 11:55 AM by flshope

A decade or more ago, I bought a little digital camera at Walmart for $20, a Sakar Gear To Go Digital Still Camera. To see the pictures you had to run some sort of proprietary software, apparently on a Windows computer. I could never get it to work, and my old Windows 95 machine didn't even have a USB port. Even my first linux computers couldn't do anything with it. The OS didn't even recognize it as a USB device. But yesterday, fresh from a successful OS upgrade, and on a whim, I plugged it into...

Tags bash, script

I made this utility along with binfind. It also has had lots of improvements since then.

This script can be used to search files contained in library files (*.so, *.la, *.a, etc.) based from keywords provided. Along with a custom list of default paths, it will search for libraries inside directories that are specified in /etc/ It would also examine files that are specified by the "include" directive in it.

After preparations it would search for...
