Making a DVD from CDs

Post date: December 4, 2005, 16:12 Category: Installing Views: 3573 Comments
Tutorial quote: People have requested to have a single DVD instead of the 5 CD's. The reasons for this are various. I have written a program called makeSUSEdvd that can make the DVD in a very easy manner. First download the CD's. These can be either the NOVELL SUSE CD's or the openSUSE cd's. You do not need to burn them, just put them in one directory with only the 5 CD's in it. You will need the root password. If you do not have that, the program is not good and you should do it by hand.

Flip - Convert text file line endings between Unix and DOS formats

Post date: March 2, 2009, 07:03 Category: System Views: 2718 Comments
Tutorial quote: This program converts line endings of text files between MS-DOS and **IX formats. It detects binary files in a nearly foolproof way and leaves them alone unless you override this. It will also leave files alone that are already in the right format and preserves file timestamps.User interrupts are handled gracefully and no garbage or corrupted files left behind. ‘flip’ does not convert files to a different character set, and it can not handle Apple Macintosh line endings (CR only). For that (and more), you can use the ‘recode’ program (package ‘recode’).

Building a Linux video jukebox for an anime convention

Post date: November 25, 2005, 21:11 Category: Miscellaneous Views: 3062 Comments
Tutorial quote: I wrote this little whitepaper a while back for Amy Zunk to document the function of the VideoKeg/VideoJukebox boxes. Documented here for posterity. The primary goal of the video keg was to build a reliable video box that was easy to transport with enough space to store 3 days worth of Anime fan-subs.

The secondary goal of the video keg was to make a home PVR system for video playback and time-shifting, along with a video arcade and perhaps a web browser. The tertiary goal of the video keg was to find an affordable hardware platform so that we could buy 4 of them immmediately to service the primary goal's need for 4 separate video rooms.

For a PVR, the machine neeed to be small, quiet, low-heat, and still fast enough to run the software video player and arcade games. For portability, we decided to go with a smaller mini-ITX style cube box.
