ffmpeg - and why it mostly won't work for normal users

Posted 06-19-2012 at 11:38 AM by error_401

Since I've got a new compact digital camera about a year ago I have the trouble that it's internal format is .MTS

.MTS ? What the heck is that? A question a lot of people will come up with as not all of us are the video cracks and sooo knowledgeable about all that stuff.

So - what would work under Linux to do something useful with all your videos having an .mts format?

Searches will lead you to ffmpeg a very powerful tool for video conversion. But unless...

SELinux, syslog-ng, and the like

So recently in my home setup I installed a scheme for centralized logging. I use rsyslog or syslog on the client servers and syslog-ng on the central server. This is nothing new and has been done before.

rsyslog + syslog-ng = gold.

I have a script which parses the syslog-ng logs across all the servers, filters them, and then sends and email with a summary and unusual logs. Each time I got an email I would get, on average, ~200-500 log messages of SELinux errors and...

user space access to parallel port

Posted 06-17-2012 at 10:53 PM by neonsignal

When using a parallel port for a printer, typically it will be accessed through a kernel printer driver.

However, the parallel port can also be used as a multi-purpose bit port from user space. This can be done by loading the ppdev driver:
modprobe ppdev
In the past, you would also have to create the access node, but this is now scripted and will happen automatically:
mknod /dev/parport0 c 99 0 -m 660
