I captured some pieces on running #linux on the #ps4 :
#storage and block devices on #linux are boring? Think again! I bet everybody can learn something new from my article: https://www.redhat.com/en/blog/linux-block-devices-hints-debugging-and-new-developments
30 years of #linux .. what was everybody doing by then, and did you have your hands on any hardware?
I was in school, German unification had just happened. Had an east german KC 85/3 at home: 1.75Mhz cpu (Z80 clone).
TIL: rtcwake on #linux can wake up your system at a predefined time.
rtcwake -m off -t $(date +%s -d "2021-08-26 20:00:00")
..will shutdown now and start the system on 26th at 20:00 of your local timezone.
With that, if power downtimes for remote systems are coming up, you can have them restart automatically at a set time.
For remote systems with encypted disks, you will want to run an sshd from initrd to enter the disk keys after reboot.
My second article about power consumption on #linux : https://blog.fluxcoil.net/posts/2021/07/measuring-power-consumption-on-linux2/
Of course it runs #linux :)
A look at the starlink hardware and software: https://www.esat.kuleuven.be/cosic/blog/dumping-and-extracting-the-spacex-starlink-user-terminal-firmware/
I was playing with measuring electrical power consumption of #Linux laptops in the last time, a summary:
Just #linux user group things:
At an online gathering of tlug.jp , seeing one attendee with activated video camera sitting in front of a blackboard with a written URL.
Accessing that URL allows to remotely control the LEDs in his room.. so when activating "rainbow waves across all LEDs", you get immediate visual feedback via the camera.. and an "oh, someone found it..." from the participant ;)
(screenshot missing because I did not ask the attendees for permission)
Would you contribute to croudfounding, to get #linux on the Apple M1?
Over this summer, I played with HDMI grabbers on #linux , this is a summary of the experiments, what works well and what not: https://blog.fluxcoil.net/posts/2020/11/linux-hdmi-grabber-1/
Great idea! How to upscale older applications, for example old games, on #linux :
So I gave in and got a Playstation 4.
Would love to run #linux on that hardware I just bought. The consoles are no longer subsidized.. #sony does not make that possible. Apparently they fear it would make it easier to run copies of games? Shame on you.
You are apparently not ashamed of using #opensource code, judging from the licenses used.
Oh, and I can not use my Sony WH-1000XM2 heaset via bluetooth, one of your own products..
