Favorite season: Summer, I like to spent my evening in my garden.
Motto: Have fun!

Please introduce yourself!

I was born in Emden at 18 June 1969. After leaving the school in 1990, I join the German Navy. Since 1994 I live in Nordholz near Bremerhaven with my wife and my two children (both girls).

When and why did you start using openSUSE/SUSE Linux?

Round about the year 2000, I bought a PC-Magazin with SuSE 6.4, installed it and used it for some time. Since SuSE 7.3, Linux replaced Windows on my PC, because I was able to configure my system on my own without a mouse. Wink

When did you join the openSUSE community and what made you do that?

In the year 2004 I joined the PackMan-Team. At this time I was looking for x86_64 RPMs. When I realized that there was nothing available, I rebuilt the PackMan-RPMs for x86_64.

Itty bitty ARM module starts at $27

In April, Variscite announced the world’s smallest i.MX6 computer-on-module with its 50 x 20mm, Freescale i.MX6-based DART-MX6. At 50 x 25mm, the DART-6UL doesn’t quite match those dimensions, but it offers greater power efficiency, making it well suited for IoT applications and battery-powered devices. Variscite claims it consumes only 5mA in suspend mode. Read more

Cleaning Linux: Jed’s Nappy /boot

My home NAS machine is an Ubuntu 14.04 machine with a ZFS volume. I need the linux-headers packages in order to compile my ZFS dkms modules. Those take more space than the kernels tend to, so I try and stay on top of removing them. Wonder how many I have? (Read the rest at FreedomPenguin)
