  • Graphical SSH Clients group test

    The options offered to you for connecting to an SSH client are extremely basic, only allowing you to put in an IP or hostname, along with a port. You’ll need to manually add a user once you hit Connect, although at least it won’t assume you’re trying to use your current Linux username. The details can also be saved for another time.

  • Live preview of Markdown documentation

    At work, to simplify build dependencies of DB-All.e we decided to port the documentation from LaTeX to Markdown.

    Shortly after starting with the porting I resented not having a live preview of my work. I guess I got addicted to it with staticsite.

    Actually, staticsite does preview interlinked Markdown files. I wonder if GitHub supports cross-linking between Markdown files in the same repo? It does, and incidentally it uses the same syntax as staticfile.

  • Blender 2.77 Is Bringing 3D Textures For GPU Rendering & Other Improvements

    Blender 2.77 is set to be released soon as the next feature release of this open-source 3D modeling program while 2.77 RC2 is the current development release.

    Exciting us about Blender 2.77 is that there are some CUDA GPU rendering improvements for its Cycles code. In particular, 3D textures for smoke/fire and point density are now supported. There is also optimized performance and memory use of subsurface scattering on the GPU to the point it's up to three times faster. There is also GK210 GPU support for the CUDA kernels and more.

  • VirtualBox 5.0.16 Brings Support for PC Speaker Passthrough on Linux

    VirtualBox, a virtualization application that allows users to run and install operating systems inside other OSes, has been upgraded to version 5.0.16 and is now ready for download.

    VirtualBox is updated very often by the Oral developers, and lots of maintenance releases are offered during a support cycle. This is a very powerful application, but it’s also very complex, so developers need to keep it updated.

    GNOME Nibbles is probably my favorite GNOME game. This Snake game has been around for a while, and unfortunately the current version is showing its age:

YouTube Downloader and Firefox in EasyOS

  • YouTube downloader fixes

    The YouTube downloader GUI is a frontend for /usr/bin/youtube-dl, which is a python script. A problem is that YouTube move the goal posts, in an attempt to stop these downloaders from working. The youtube-dl developers respond by changing their script so that it works again.

  • Firefox version 94.0.2

    Have just downloaded English, French and German Firefox 94.0.2 tarballs, and it will be in the next release of EasyOS.

Use BespokeSynth on Fedora Linux

Sun Aug 14 10:36:37 2016, this is the birth date of BespokeSynth. Since that date, BespokeSynth has grown a lot; both in terms of its user base and the size of its codebase. BespokeSynth is an application for performing modular synthesis. Because it has been written by a newcomer to modular synthesis, it is quite different from the usual modular synthesizer. Note: I am the manager of the LinuxMAO / Audinux Copr repository. Read more

IBM/Red Hat Leftovers

  • Writing and unit testing a Python application to query the RPM database | Enable Sysadmin

    When installing software on a Linux system, your package manager keeps track of what's installed, what it's dependent upon, what it provides, and much more. The usual way to look at that metadata is through your package manager. In the case of Fedora or Red Hat Enterprise Linux, it is the RPM database. The RPM database can be queried from the command line with the rpm command, which supports some very nice formatting options. For example, to get a list of all packages sorted by size, I can use a little bit of Bash glue to do the following:
