iPhones, Linux and Service Discovery

Posted 05-14-2017 at 12:25 PM by Rod3775

Service Discovery

Service discovery refers to the process of getting additional information about resources in a distributed (e.g. networked) system. iPhones are particularly dependent on service discovery. This blog concerns the process of discovering services (specifically remote printer sevices) and IP addresses (e.g name service) and the various ways this can be done.

<Short digression>:

IP network messages can be sent in one of three ways,...

How To Fix The UID Issue

Posted 05-11-2017 at 11:22 PM by Ztcoracat

There's nothing more irritating than not being able to mount your other drives while your booted into your favorite distro.

This has happened twice on my Linux systems and thanks to our Guru suicidaleggroll there is a way to fix it.

I'll use my 3 systems as an example.

I've got Slackware, Voyager Linux and Gecko Linux...

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.

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...
