Hi all,

Thanks to the continuous efforts of our admins the development of the openSUSE Forums goes on and on. From today, 25th of May 2011, we can blog. Blog about openSUSE, blog about other thoughts? Don't know yet. It's already been a while since I blogged -even the site does no longer exist-, but this is a good time to pick it up. Can't promise a daily return, but the intention to write here is there, we'll see.

  1. Pihole server installer - Live ad-free

    What is a Pihole server?
    It's a tool / server that uses dnsmasq and blocklists to make a local network ad-free. When we visit websites, the pages contain dozens of links to other urls to feed us with ads and tracking cookies. What Pihole does is send these requests to /dev/null once the pihole server is setup as the first DNS in your router. Ik can be run on quite minimal hardware with just enough operating system to get it running.

    The script from my gitlab repo will install ...

  2. DKMS + NVIDIA on openSUSE

    NOTE: This will only work if all other NVIDIA installs have been removed
    NOTE: This was made up for the 331.20 driver. The package will update to newer versions of the driver, currently 331.38
    The package is in fact no more than a spec file, that

  3. Playing media content from openSUSE on a DLNA Smart TV

    Wondered how easy it would be to make content on an openSUSE machine available through DLNA on our smart TV. The TV already has a wired networkconnection to our gigabit LAN. And this was all there is to it:

    Prepare: take 1 openSUSE machine

    Step one: go to , search for "minidlna"
    Step two: install minidlna
    Step three: read through /etc/minidlna.conf and enter own media_dirs in full path
    Step four: remove /var/cache/minidlna/* ...
  4. New laptop: ASUS A73SD-TY121V openSUSE 12.2

    Before installing I replaced the 5400 rpm HDD by an ADATA sata-600 120GB SSD. That was the hardest part.
    I booted a 12.2 KDE Live USBstick, performed a default install, approx 5 minutes, restored /home and some other stuff from a backup from on an SSD with mini USB, done. Back up and running with all my stuff in 3 hours. Both laptop and openSUSE 12.2 are fast, fast, fast.
  5. Installing openSUSE 12.1 on a ASUS EEEpc X101CH

    Yesterday I got three ASUS EEEpc X101CH netbooks at hand, to install openSUSE 12.1 on. I decided to do a NET install, since the netbooks have only 1 GB or RAM and a LiveCD install needs a bit more. Install worked like a charm, until first reboot, which was followed by a complete freeze and udevd crashing. I searched the forums, but nothing came up. Searched Google and found one post (dated yesterday) describing the same issue, mentioning the plan to add the Kernel:/stable/standard repo. This repo ...
