Reddit: Increase 165.00 Mhz Pixel Clock Limit? (HD4000 -> 4K @ 30 Hz)

Thursday 2nd of October 2014 05:50:47 PM

I wonder if I can output 4k resolution (3840 × 2160) @ 30Hz with a Intel HD4000 graphics using Linux and a single HDMI output.

The best I've gotten is 18 Hz when I use "cvt -r 3840 2160 60" and change the pixel limit it gives to 165.00 and use xrandr. Anything higher and there is too much blinking of the screen.

I know that there is a problem with the pixel clock (which is limited to 165MHz) which limits the output maximal output power.

Where is the pixel clock limited? In the kernel? In the graphics driver? Can it be removed/fixed in general?

Reddit: IPtables issue

Thursday 2nd of October 2014 05:49:07 PM


I've enabled four ports in my iptables but when I run a port scanner against the box, it only shows two being open. 8834 and 22, 80 and 443 are not showing as open. Any thoughts?

Thanks, Mike

[root@lab3 mnickel]# iptables -L Chain INPUT (policy ACCEPT) target prot opt source destination ACCEPT tcp -- anywhere anywhere tcp dpt:ssh ACCEPT tcp -- anywhere anywhere tcp dpt:http ACCEPT tcp -- anywhere anywhere tcp dpt:https ACCEPT tcp -- anywhere anywhere tcp dpt:8834 DROP all -- anywhere anywhere

This tutorial is the second part of the introduction to Linux command-line. In the first chapter I tried to make a brief introduction to the shell and the basic ways of moving around. Here I will talk about several useful commands, which may be needed on a day to day basis if you're working with the shell. Slide Show: 11 Smart Eyewear Devices Running Android or Linux

Reddit: Can I dual boot into an ESXi-like installation on my PC?

Thursday 2nd of October 2014 03:53:13 PM

Preface: I have experience with Windows, Linux, VMware, and Virtualbox. But I am not anywhere close to an expert.

Goal: I want to dual boot my Windows 7 machine with a lightweight Linux OS that serves only as a host for a VM environment. So basically ESXi, but on a much smaller level.

Has anyone attempted this before? Is it possible to do on a consumer device level? Is there a linux distro that functions or can be made to function like ESXi? Is there a better alternative?

Edit: I should add a few details.

I want to boot into and access the VM from my machine, so it wouldn't be exactly like ESXi. I would want it to perform like a "VirtualBox OS" or "VMWare OS", that takes me directly to a list of VMs, I choose which one to boot, and it brings it up full screen. I have no reason to have a UI at any point before booting into the VM, so that all feels like overhead I don't want.

Thursday 2nd of October 2014 03:51:30 PM

Say you have a Linux instance on Azure / AWS with reasonable amount of RAM (~2GB), processing power and storage (~1 TB). And you dont have to pay a single dollar for this.

What are some of the cool things you would do with this setup?

Three great Android tools for Linux and Windows sysadmin

Systems administration isn't a simple job — and being able to respond to issues quickly is a definite plus. Not long ago, server problems meant receiving a phone alert followed by a trip to the data center to fix whatever was wrong. Today, having full-powered computers such as smartphones or tablets literally in your hand is a tremendous help when doing sysadmin. Load Android with a few key applications and you can remotely monitor servers and services, get alerts and warnings as they occur, and solve problems without any travel at all. Read more

Windows Phone Shrinks In Android-Dominated Europe, As New iPhones Boost iOS’ Share

Spare a thought for Microsoft, a relative newcomer to the mobile making business, after Redmond completed its $7.2BN+ acquisition of former European mobile making powerhouse Nokia earlier this year. If Microsoft was hoping to see quick marketshare wins in Europe once its hands were fully on the levers of production that has not come to pass. The latest 12-week smartphone sales figures from Kantar Worldpanel ComTech, up to this September, indicate that Windows Phone’s already small share of the smartphone market has shrunk in Europe — dropping 0.3 percentage points in aggregate across the top five markets in Europe (the UK, France, Spain, Italy and Germany).
