So little time to play :-( had my Pi many weeks!

So far had the official Debian distro loaded, config file tweaked to shrink the screen to fit my HDMI TV's and fstab file modified to mount my music and vidieo SMB shares on the server. Will back date this blog with details of the above later, very lax of me I know.

Sound ... oh joy of joys ... Linux and sound is like a shit sandwich, anyone who knows me knows I am a big Linux fan but the...

user space access to parallel port

Posted 06-17-2012 at 09:53 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

I thought I'd post this for posterities sake:

chironfs is a nifty fuse-based file system that duplicates a file hierarchy across multiple paths. (Like a file system version of RAID 1.) However, I found that if I tried to use an sshfs mounted directory as one of the paths, chironfs disables the path with the error "mknod failed accessing <path> Permission denied".

The workaround I found was to pass in the following option to sshfs when mounting the sshfs...

user mounted filesystems

Posted 06-14-2012 at 10:51 PM by neonsignal

Rather than mount a filesystem as root (whether from the command line or through /etc/fstab), non-privileged users can make use of the fuse (filesystem in userspace) system. This requires the installation of the fuse-utils package, and the user has to be added to the fuse group.

There are a number of useful systems implemented on top of fuse.

For example, an ISO system might be required to run a particular application, and just mounted temporarily by the user executing...
