Run Android 5.1 Lollipop Exton build 2 on Raspberry Pi 2 – version 150527

Posted Yesterday at 12:44 PM by exton (Exton's Blog)

NEWS about RaspAnd 150527
I have compiled yet another Android 5.1 Lollipop system which can run on Raspberry Pi 2. I call “my” new system RaspAnd build 2. My first version of RaspAnd is from 150405. The following useful apps are pre-installed in build 2 of 150527: Aptoide App Manager (to be used instead of Google Play Store), Terminal Emulator, WinZip, FileManager, Rotation Control Lite, WPS Office and Offline Maps. Those apps were not included in build 1 from 150405.

Reviving a teenage Mac with Debian

Posted 05-25-2015 at 08:32 PM by wagscat123

So my newer laptop that ran openSUSE 13.2 got an LCD cable in it pinched off, and the new parts and a open heart surgery-like repair awaits this laptop from 2011.

But I wanted to be able to surf the web with a mouse in the library, in lounges, and not be trapped to my dorm. So I dug up a 1999 PowerBook G3 "Lombard" that we were given in 2005, and downloaded some Debian.

I did this back in 2012 with Debian 6.0 and XFCE, but with no motive beyond pure curiosity.....

Not-so-smart devices

Posted 05-25-2015 at 02:56 PM by rocket357 (Musings on technology, philosophy, and life in the corporate world)

A few years ago, my 47" Toshiba TV developed a strange characteristic. It would suddenly, and without warning, feed static through the speakers (making it impossible to watch TV). Changing the channel up one and then back down one "fixed it", until the problem occurred again.

In the end, the real fix was a firmware update. Being a guy from the days of rabbit ears and tube TV's, I'm a bit irked that they call this "improvement" "smart" (very much...

For the heck of it?

Yeah. I told yuh. This is Computer Mad Science. It doesn't have to make sense or to be useful. ;-) [Though it might very well be both.]

En route to testing KDE 5 : Part 1 , the minimal slack install

Posted 05-21-2015 at 02:17 AM by jheengut
Updated 05-21-2015 at 02:19 AM by jheengut

Last time I visited changelog64 , a major up haul to slackware current was done, new xfce, kde releases and a new 3.18 kernel. This indicates a possible 14.2 Slackware will be released in due time when stability is deemed.

Until then, I embarked on a little experimentation about making a minimal -current install.

Since I did not want to reboot, I tried chroot. It did not work, so have to do more steps.

This is how i format my hard disk:
