How to Easily Softmod ANY Fat PS2! | FreeMCBoot & FreeHDBoot Install Tutorial - YouTube
This tutorial has been requested for quite a long time but I waited so long because I was not too keen on the many install methods shown out there. A few recommendations to softmod a PS2 with FreeMCBoot normally include: finding a pre-modded console, using a disc swap trip, using Swap Magic, all of which could be a bit costly or time consuming. With this method all we need is one console and a few tools at our disposal! No swap tricks or discs, no pre-loaded memory card, no reliance on any other system!

This involves installing FreeHDBoot to a hard drive, loading it into the PS2 and using that as our entry point to install FreeMCBoot. That's it! No additional games needed and no need to open up our console!

How To Get A Global Menu In Xubuntu 16.04 Or Lubuntu 16.04 (Using TopMenu) ~ Web Upd8: Ubuntu / Linux blog
TopMenu (a global menu for MATE, Xfce and LXDE panels) is available in the official Ubuntu 16.04 repositories and it works great in Ubuntu MATE 16.04, but it doesn't work in Xubuntu 16.04 and Lubuntu 16.04 by simply installing the panel applet package.

Here's how to get TopMenu to work in Xubuntu 16.04 and Lubuntu 16.04, using the official packages, with a minor tweak.

topmenu-gtk.git - A Gtk+ module and Mate/Xfce panel applets for a global menubar.
Requirements and compatibility:

Currently, TopMenu ships as a panel applet for either Mate 1.8, Xfce >= 4.8 (Gtk+2 versions only), or LXPanel. The Mate applet would be relatively easy to port to Gnome 2.

Gtk+2 is the preferred toolkit, albeit Gtk+3 is partially supported. Plugins are shipped for Qt 4 and some Mozilla apps (Firefox, Thunderbird and Zotero). Note that, except in the Gtk+ 3 case, menu bars will always be rendered using the Gtk+ 2 theme.

internet - Netgear N-300/ WNA3100 USB Adapter for Ubuntu 16.04 - Ask Ubuntu
Q: I am new to Linux and Ubuntu and I am having trouble connecting to the Internet.

I have a netgear WNA3100 USB Adapter and I don't have anything in my additional drivers.

A: You can add Support for the Netgear N-300/ WNA3100 USB Adapter by installing the ndiswrapper and loading the Windows network driver. [...]

(me: ndiswrapper fails to build when using kernel-headers >= 5.0 (on i686), then (even if patched) the 32-bit WinXP driver from NetGear does not work: ndiswrapper causes an "oops" because of the "nx" cpu protection bit; then, after disabling this (see another link saved today), ndiswrapper gives yet another error. Result (so far): failed).

How-to: Stitch together your own battery power manager - Linux Mint Forums
[...] To recap. What I wanted was to preserve my battery's lifespan as long as possible. Note that I don't mean battery life between charges which can be achieved by dimming the screen, turning off Bluetooth, spinning down the HD, etc., but long term battery lifespan.

I had heard of "Intelligent" power managers, but had not paid much attention since it was always in a Windows context. Lenovo have a Power Manager as part of their Windows pre-installed software package ThinkVantage Technologies [[url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ThinkVantage_Technologies]1[/url]].

hamishcoleman/thinkpad-ec: Infrastructure for examining and patching Thinkpad embedded controller firmware
The main purpose of this software is to patch the EC on xx30 series thinkpads to make the classic 7-row keyboards work. There are also patches included (but disabled by default) to disable the authentic battery validation check.

With the patches included here, you can install the classic keyboard hardware on many xx30 series laptops and make almost every key work properly. The only keys that are not working are Fn+F3 (Battery) and Fn+F12 (Hibernate)

Unfortunately, there are a small number of thinkpads with a model number from the "xx30" series that are using a completely different EC CPU and a different BIOS update strategy. Thus they are not currently able to be patched. This is known to be the case for at least the L430, L530 and E330.

tp-smapi - ThinkWiki
The tp_smapi kernel module exposes some features of the ThinkPad hardware/firmware via a sysfs interface. Currently, the main implemented functionality is control of battery charging and extended battery status. The tp_smapi software package also includes an improved version of the HDAPS driver. The underlying hardware interfaces are SMAPI and direct access to the embedded controller.

This driver uses undocumented features and direct hardware access, so it may work unreliably or even damage your hardware; but so far no such damage has been reported.

If you are installing on a recent Thinkpad that has an Ivy Bridge or newer processor (X230, T430, T530, etc.), tp_smapi will not work. You will be mostly limited to thinkpad-acpi capabilities. You can however set battery charge thresholds with tpacpi-bat.

How to do local port forwarding with iptables - Stack Overflow
Q: I have an application (server) listening on port 8080. I want to be able to forward port 80 to it, such that hitting http://localhost resolves my application (on localhost:8080).

This should be generalized for any port mapping (e.g. 80:8080 => P_src:P_target), and use best practices for modern *nix machines (e.g. Ubuntu).

N.B. This is all done locally, so there is no need to accept connections from anyone but localhost.

OpenWrt offers several ways to “start over” with your router.

* Failsafe Mode is useful if you have lost control of your device, and it has become inaccessible, perhaps through a configuration error. It allows you to reboot the router into a basic operating state, retaining all your packages and (most) settings. (see Failsafe Mode)
* Factory Reset erases all your packages and settings, returning the router to its initial state after installing OpenWrt. (see Factory Reset)
* Recovery Mode allows you to install new firmware on a router that has become corrupted. (see Recovery Mode)

Old OpenWrt Wiki [Old OpenWrt Wiki]
OpenWrt ​is a highly extensible ​GNU/​Linux ​distribution for embedded devices ​(typically wireless routers). Unlike many other distributions for these routers, OpenWrt ​is built from the ground up to be a full-featured, easily modifiable operating system for your router. In practice, this means that you can have all the features you need with none of the bloat, powered by a Linux kernel ​that's more recent than most other distributions.

OpenWrt Project: 4/32 warning
Every operating system requires

1. Sufficient Flash to accommodate firmware image
2. Sufficient RAM for stable operation

Devices with ≤4MB flash and/or ≤32MB ram will work but they will be very limited (usually they can't install or run additional packages) because they have low RAM and flash space. Consider this when choosing a device to buy, or when deciding to flash OpenWrt on your device because it is listed as supported.

The following preparation is recommended, before flashing OpenWrt/LEDE firmware:

* Don't rush the installation, take your time. If something seems weird during installation, find answers first before continuing.
* Have your device's precise model name at hand (so you are able to select the correct OpenWrt/LEDE firmware)
* Have your devices's documentation at hand, on how to flash new firmware
* When installing and configuring OpenWrt/LEDE on your Internet router, your Internet-access will obviously be offline for a few minutes. Please ensure that you have all required information offline or have backup Internet access at hand in this time.

SSH Daemon | Customizing the SSH Daemon | CoreOS
Container Linux defaults to running an OpenSSH daemon using systemd socket activation – when a client connects to the port configured for SSH, sshd is started on the fly for that client using a systemd unit derived automatically from a template. In some cases you may want to customize this daemon's authentication methods or other configuration. This guide will show you how to do that at boot time using a Container Linux Config, and after building by modifying the systemd unit file.

systemd Environment File | systemd with CoreOS
systemd has an Environment directive which sets environment variables for executed processes. It takes a space-separated list of variable assignments. This option may be specified more than once in which case all listed variables will be set. If the same variable is set twice, the later setting will override the earlier setting. If the empty string is assigned to this option, the list of environment variables is reset, all prior assignments have no effect. Environments directives are used in built-in Container Linux systemd units, for example in etcd2 and flannel.
