Static network config not based on interface name or MAC address

Posted 04-08-2012 at 04:57 PM by Skaperen

Traditionally, static configurations of IP addresses were made based on the interface names, which were always constant. When the kernel started doing device probes in a way that interface names would vary from time to time even on the exact same set of NICs, then we needed udev to keep things orderly. Turns out even udev can be fool when you change NICs, or when moving system hard drives to a new machine. New MAC addresses mean the old interface names are unavailable. So network configurations...

Wishing Linux had partitionable loopback/virtual disk

Posted 04-08-2012 at 04:46 PM by Skaperen

I wish Linux had a loopback (stored in a file) or virtual (stored in RAM) disk block device which supported partitions. I know some of you will be jumping the reply button to tell me about the offset option for loopback. Well, no, that isn't it. I want such a device for the purpose of running bootloader installs on. That requires the bootloader to be able to access both the whole device and the partition(s) on what are whole/part related device inodes.

gFifteen 0.10.2: Gentoo / Debian / Ubuntu

* Debian / Ubuntu users: I have made available a .deb package of the latest version, which has been tested successfully on Debian (Wheezy). Presumably it should work under Ubuntu as well. At present only...

What is Tintii? Why does it make my pictures look cool.

Posted 04-06-2012 at 11:56 PM by stretchedthin

Tintii version 2.6.1 was just recently released. So I thought I'd use the occation to get the word out on this Opensource application. In the Tintii's own words...
"For photographers who love to express colour, use Tintii for colour on black-and-white, colour popping, selective colour, saturation contrast and subtle hue and lightness adjustments. Use Tintii..."
So in simplier terms Tintii will extract the color from everything you do not want to draw focus too. This...
