rss-glx: 3D fireworks screensaver and more

Posted 11-07-2010 at 07:03 PM by Web31337 (In The Middle Of Nowhere [edK's blog])

About two years ago, when I wasn't yet a linux user I saw a video on youtube, a comparision of two laptops, one running Ubuntu, another windblows vista.
at some moment of video the guy starts some ugly screensaver from windblows, something looks like old "pipes" from older versions of the system and then, starts this outstanding 3d screensaver with fireworks exploding under the clouds in ubuntu laptop. Which is free and opensource, yeah.
I never actually used screensavers...

Using gzip Compression in Apache to Serve Pages Faster

Posted 11-07-2010 at 08:13 AM by Focused4Success
Updated 11-07-2010 at 08:15 AM by Focused4Success

Enabling gzip compression in Apache will dramatically reduce the amount of data transmitted. This is easily accomplished by doing the following as root:

cd /etc/apache2
cat <<\! > httpd.conf.local
SetOutputFilter DEFLATE
SetEnvIfNoCase Request_URI \.(?:gif|jpe?g|png)$ \
no-gzip dont-vary
SetEnvIfNoCase Request_URI \
\.(?:exe|t?gz|zip|bz2|sit|rar|7z)$ \
no-gzip dont-vary
SetEnvIfNoCase Request_URI \.pdf$...

This article *does* give good instruction, but if you're more experienced at building GNOME Shell, you might want to see just what GS will look like when it's closer to 3.0. Here's how to do it:

After building GNOME Shell from the main branch, remove and re-clone GNOME Shell from the repositories:

Code:
rm -rf ~/gnome-shell/source/gnome-shell
git clone git://git.gnome.org/gnome-shell

Publishing the Website

Posted 11-07-2010 at 12:42 AM by Focused4Success
Updated 11-07-2010 at 07:52 AM by Focused4Success

I haven't been able to figure out how to configure Apache to access the mounted filesystem yet. In lieu of this I created a script to just copy the files that change while I'm doing development. I created a bash script called: publish, with the following contents:

#!/bin/bash
target=/srv/www/htdocs
dir=RoseOfLife
if [ ! -d ${target}/${dir} ]
then
sudo mkdir ${target}/${dir}
fi
sudo pax -r -w -v -Y -Z . ${target}/${dir}

fun around MIPS: qemu-system-mips

Posted 11-06-2010 at 11:33 PM by Web31337 (In The Middle Of Nowhere [edK's blog])
Tags arm, mips, nginx, qemu

Yesterday I was surprised when discovered that,... ehm, well... I'm such a newbie in this... that most routers using MIPS not ARM CPU as I thought before
Since that, I've also tried to look at MIPS in QEMU. There is even less information about this, though debian to help I was surprised I've missed it last time when doing experiments with qemu-system-arm, but now it's very helpful with qemu-system-mips.
I used aurel32's page as a start point: http://people.debian.org/~aurel32/qemu/mips/...
