It's been a few years...

My most recent undertaking is an idea that's been done plenty of times before, but I want to do my own version of it. Most importantly, I have learned a lot regarding Linux devices. Expect much more to be added or changed on this before all is said and done.

Simply broken down, my 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee is equipped with a RAQ sound system. This part is only important if you are a Chrysler vehicle owner from the years 2004-2008. It is a decent...

ExTiX 17.5, Build 170508, with KDE 4.16.12 together with KDE Frameworks 5.31.0, Refracta Tools and kernel 4.11.0-1-exton

Posted 05-08-2017 at 08:21 AM by exton (Exton's Blog)

I have made a new version of ExTiX – The Ultimate Linux System. I call it ExTiX 17.5 KDE Live DVD. (The previous version was 17.0 from 161221). The best thing with ExTiX 17.5 is that while running the system live (from DVD/USB) or from hard drive you can use Refracta Tools (pre-installed) to create your own live installable Ubuntu system. So easy that a ten year child can do it!

ExTiX 17.5 KDE DVD 64 bit is based on Debian 8.7 Jessie/Debian 9 Stretch and Ubuntu 17.04....

Heterogenous Networks with Heterogeneous Printers

This blog describes the process of building a modest home network involving multiple printers and computers with different operating systems, using consumer-level equipment.

The priority objective was to be able to print on all printers from all computers.
A secondary objective was to concentrate the maintainable software in one place, so that if new printers or computers were added, only the new equipment needed...

NEWS/CHANGES 170501 in MeX Linux
Mex Linux is no longer based on Linux Mint. MeX Build 170501 is based only on Debian 8.7 and Ubuntu 16.04.2. I have replaced the original kernel with “my” special kernel 4.10.0-19-exton (4.10.8). All packages in MeX Linux have been upgraded to the latest version by 170501. This version of MeX uses Cinnamon 3.2.8. Linux Mint 18.1 also uses Cinnamon 3.2.8 as Desktop environment.

Speeding up and tuning down the quality of podcasts (reducing disk space)

Posted 04-29-2017 at 10:49 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)

An interesting method I now realize is possible:

ffmpeg -i in-normal.mp3 -filter:a "atempo=1.4" -f wav - | lame -q 2 -v --vbr-new -V 9 -b8 -B 20 - out_speedup.mp3
A previous method I was using had sox and for some reason mpg123 or 321 I guess, to generate a "physical" temporary wav somewhere, this method use a pipe instead of an actual temporary file.

The input file isn't necessarily mp3, it can be m4a/aac at least, possibly also webm,...
