NEWS 170810 about RaspEX for Raspberry Pi 3 and Pi 2
I have upgraded the whole system and replaced the old kernel 4.4.49 with “my own” compiled kernel 4.9.41-exton-v7+. RaspEX Build 170810 is a Linux ARM system for Raspberry Pi 3 and Pi 2. It is based on Debian 9, Ubuntu 17.04 and Linaro (Open Source software for ARM SoCs). In this new version (170810) I’ve installed Wicd Network Manager and replaced Chromium with Firefox with better support for YouTube. I have also installed Samba and...

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...

Stylish CSS userstyle for new google's image search, so you can spare an extra click

It's crude but seems to work. I simply don't get why webdesigners think it's a great idea to needlessly hide small menus under that "vertical ellipsis" icon. At very least those could be displayed just by hovering.

Code:
.irc_m {
    background-color: #fff;
    box-shadow: 3px 3px 12px rgba(0,0,0,0.4);
    margin-top: 0px;
    overflow: auto;
    padding: 0px 0;
    position: absolute;
    right: 8px;
    z-index: 2;

GPU benchmarking... that was scary

Posted 08-06-2017 at 08:40 AM by the dsc (linux-related notes)

The computer I was using before apparently is dying... somewhat bulging capacitors, with the screen getting totally corrupt along with the sound, and "REISUB" doesn't work...

I've just moved the HDD/OS to a different motherboard, somewhat similar computer... and I was checking the actual hardware specs on "hardinfo"....

I clicked more or less accidentally on "GPU drawing", not noticing it was under the benchmark section (and not expecting...

NEWS 170805 ABOUT RaspAnd Nougat 7.1.2 with Google Play Store working
I have finally managed to make a version of RaspAnd Nougat 7.1.2 (for Raspberry Pi 3), which has GAPPS installed and Google Play Store working. This version of RaspAnd can be installed in Windows using Win32 Disk Imager. The video performance is generally much better than in previous versions and the screen flickering is (almost) gone.
