A sequel to my topic, "onboard video card dying, or something else?", where Shadow_7 posted:

I had a bad cap on an asus rt-n16. One of my old motherboards had a similarly spec'd cap that I replace it with. $80 saved.

If the bad caps are on the motherboard, a new video card wont save it.
Out of curiosity,...

Annotations while trying to eventually get suspension and/or hibernation to work

Posted 08-16-2017 at 04:33 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)

I've never used this kind of thing, decided to give a try, as it seemed safe for all I was reading.

"pm-suspend-hybrid" did work, but after resuming, the CPU fan was reset to full speed all the time, as if the BIOS was set to have "smart fan control" disabled.

It may be also partly because some of the power management options (whatever is its name) are set to "S3" which I recall reading isn't really appropriate for suspension (which keeps...

How to watch Netflix in RaspEX Build 170810 based on Ubuntu 17.04

Posted 08-16-2017 at 08:48 AM by exton (Exton's Blog)

After my latest build of RaspEX (from 170810) was ready and released I stumbled over an article about How to watch Netflix on the Raspberry Pi. If you use Raspbian or Raspberry Pi systems based on Raspbian you can just follow the instructions in said article to be able to watch Netflix. If you use (or want to use) RaspEX Build 170810 you’ll have to install two extra packages before you can install a special version of the Chromium Browser.

GO ON AND READ my instruction for RaspEX…

EdgeRouter Lite + OpenBSD + Goal Zero Yeti solar power pack

Posted 08-10-2017 at 02:23 AM by rocket357 (Musings on technology, philosophy, and life in the corporate world)

A lot has changed in my home network since I last wrote here on LQ. I moved to a new rental and during the course of re-arranging everything on my network countless times, I started to get a bit irritated with having to constantly shutdown/startup my new firewall. The new firewall, speaking of, is an octeon low-power box, specifically the EdgeRouter Lite, running OpenBSD. Rebooting it is relatively painless, unless you include the speed at which my kids report internet issues (It's an entirely...
