Holy Binary Blobs, Batman!

Posted 01-25-2012 at 02:58 PM by hydraMax (Bits and Pixels)

Just how many binary blobs are there in the kernel...!? I finally enabled "deblob" for my gentoo kernel sources, and it took the build five minutes to remove all the kernel blobs! Must have been hundreds of them. I think I saw my Ethernet driver scroll by... hopefully I have networking in my next boot. (*gulp*)

Finally broke down and bought my first printer, a Brother HL-2270DW. It has only been a few days, but I'm pretty happy with my purchase. It's everything I wanted: an inexpensive, Ethernet capable, Linux-compatible laser printer (I hate inkjet). It provides LPD/LPR service over the network, so you don't even have to download the proprietary drivers to use it: just use the CUPS Web interface to add an LPD printer (Generic PCL) and point it to the correct IP address.
