I recently purchased a Dell DA200 USB-C adapter to have Ethernet without
needing to sacrifice one of the two regular USB 3 ports. Debian Testing picks
it up just fine, according to
[ 2.167530] usb 4-1.4: new SuperSpeed USB device number 3 using xhci_hcd
[ 2.184448] usb 4-1 ...
The PC Engines APU2 is an embedded system based on AMD's Jaguar
family of processors. Many people prefer to run pfSense on it, but
since the rest of my hardware is alread on LEDE, it's easier for me
to stick with that; the APU2 will manage a network ...
Let's Encrypt is a wonderful initiative providing free short-term certificates
to anyone. The EFF kindly provides us with a Certbot, which quickly and
easily installs and renews Let's Encrypt certificates. However, it does not support
Lighttpd out of the box. Lighttpd wants your private key and domain certificate ...
OpenWrt/LEDE rely on the UCI
framework for configuring the devices they run on. All common services
(DNS, DHCP, firewall, dynamic DNS, ...) are configured through UCI, with
the human-readable results being saved into configuration files in
/etc/config. However, that's just for the user's convenience; UCI itself
The default images the Beagleboard project provides come with a preconfigured
usb0 interface. I had been unable to replicate that with Debian's multiplatform armmp kernel,
which is why I started building my own kernels. I recently found out that
all one needs, however, is the
g_ether module loaded (it ...
Just wanted to drop a quick line on the young LibreELEC project, a
fork of OpenELEC. It's still in its infancy, but it aims to address
a few issues that the latter has been coping with. Quite a few developers
joined already, and they intend to be open and ...
I have been experimenting with Saltstack - more commonly known as just 'Salt' -
and running the master on my laptop. Since it seems to be consuming CPU cycles all the time
and I'd like to optimise my laptop's autonomy, I started looking into ways to disable it on
The right tool for the job
Aptly is a neat tool that allows you to quickly build Debian or Ubuntu repositories.
You can grab it from Debian's repositories. Build a repo with the name 'zfs':
$ aptly repo create -distribution=jessie -component=contrib zfs
Add your packages. You can add ...
I recently had to clean up (and upgrade) a friend's system. It had been
a while since I had to do that on location, and I had just this one crappy USB2
stick on me (and my laptop with some ISOs I keep around). I wrote a Linux ...
I recently decided to move my remote firmware update process to HTTPS. The most
obvious and ubiquitous candidate was the
wget utility. The downside is it
only supports OpenSSL. While modern routers with 8 MiB or more flash, like my
Netgear WNDR3700, have no trouble accomodating the bigger library (libopenssl ...
