As I mentioned before, I’m looking at Linux Containers (LXC) to have a higher density virtualization. To get ready for that, I had to create a network bridge to allow the containers to be accessible on the network. First I installed bridge-utils: yum install bridge-utils -y After that, I had to create the network script: […]
I updated Rawhide and ended up with this login screen. I like it – I think mostly because of the font.
Back when I first was working on replacing my Pogoplug (the original BabyLuigi), I was looking at potentially using it to learn about Docker in addition to creating virtual machines that were actually useful instead of just playing around with VMs for looking at Linux distros. The benefit of Docker was to have the isolation […]
I created this video to help people learn how easy it is with Libvirt, KVM, and QEMU to have multiple monitors in your virtual machines.
Going to do some summer cleaning on my VMs, so I wanted to document peak KVM as a reminder of how many I had running at this time:
After someone told me that a PDF I’d created in Calligra Office was illegible and having issues with spreadsheets loading slowly, I decided to install LibreOffice. However, rather than go with the version in the repos, I decided to go with Flatpak – which allows for a more advanced version via the usage of runtimes. […]
My main computer is now on Fedora 24. This time around I only had to uninstall HDR Merge (which was from my COPR and I hadn’t built a Fedora 24 version yet) and OBS-Studio because there isn’t a Fedora 24 package for it yet. Not bad. After rebooting, I didn’t have graphics. Then rebooting once […]
Fedora 24 was released yesterday. I updated Daisy, my big laptop, first since it’s not critical. If the update broke something I wouldn’t care. The only hitch it had was that I had to reinstall the RPMFusion repos from the RPM for Fedora 24. Otherwise it was saying that one of the packages wasn’t signed […]
It’s been a long time since I last took a look at an innovative music player. Back in 2006 I explored Songbird ) and in 2008 I looked at some of the unique features over two posts: Taking Another Look at Songbird and Play the Web. The ability to grab MP3s off of sites, in particular […]
I’ve been looking at NAS implementations for a long time. I looked at FreeNAS for a while then OpenMediaVault. But what I really wanted was to be able to take advantage of btrfs and its great RAID abilities – especially its ability to dynamically expand. So I was happy when I discovered Rockstor on Reddit. […]
Now that Google has released the Nik Collection for free, I wondered which is the best way to convert a color image into a B&W image. So I wanted to compare the results from RawTherapee, GIMP G’MIC Plugin, and Nik Collection in Photoshop. What follows are four videos as go through the processes. Here are […]
You might remember the photos from Scarlett’s birthday party. For some reason Dina wanted to hide when holding Sam. Her shoulder and back ended up being incredibly distracting in the photo. It would have been better if she would have just stood up and held him normally rather than pretend he was sitting on his […]
It’s been a long time since I looked at a new Linux distro. Long time readers know I used to review Linux distros a few years ago. But one of the maintainers of Korora posts to the Fedora Planet feed. (They may say constantly that RSS feeds are dead, but some of us still use […]
It’s the intersection of three of my hobbies – computers, Linux, and photography! Ever since I learned how to compile source code from the net, about a decade ago, I’ve wanted to create RPMs to help those who aren’t comfortable with compiling or simply don’t want to bother with compiling. But, for some reason, RPM […]
After daydreaming about running my Linux computer from an SSD for years (ever since I saw how fast it made my wife’s Linux install), I finally did it on the main Linux computer (SuperMario) as the root hard drive was getting old and was liable to die at any moment. The last time I’d installed […]
