    These are what I was removing in YaST from the bottom up.
    I pretty sure it was the gcc that cause this but not sure, but what ever it was caused a reboot, and that is when it stopped at the terminal input.

  2. Installing an HP Deskject All-in-One 2675 with SUSE-LEAP

    by , 05-Jul-2019 at 04:09 (oldcpu's meandering thoughts on Computers, GNU/Linux and openSUSE)
    I recently moved to a new continent, and discarded my old HP printer (which after many years was still running fine - but I did not want to pay the expense of shipping it). To replace it, I purchased a relatively inexpensive HP 2675 Deskjet Ink Advantage 2675 All-in-one printer. One of the reasons I chose the 2675 is its HP Ink Advantage 680 cartridges are not as expensive as many other HP cartridges. I find ink for HP printers tend to be more expensive than cartridges for some of the competition ...

  3. Playing with dashcam (Viofo A119 V2) mp4 files in openSUSE GNU/Linux

    by , 09-Apr-2019 at 11:55 (oldcpu's meandering thoughts on Computers, GNU/Linux and openSUSE)
    I briefly played with my new Viofo A119 v2 dashcam's mp4 files in openSUSE GNU/Linux LEAP-15.0. I still have a lot to learn on this, but I was able to use some of the superb work conducted by others to make some progress with the Viofo A119's video files.

    As noted, this is a Viofo A119 v2 dashcam (where I purchased the GPS module option and also a 128 GB micro SD card to store videos). It is an old make of a dashcam, but because it uses 'capacitors' and not a 'battery', I am hoping ...

  4. Stabilizing a Video in openSUSE GNU/Linux with vid.stab and ffmpeg

    by , 25-Mar-2019 at 10:45 (oldcpu's meandering thoughts on Computers, GNU/Linux and openSUSE)
    This blog entry is about a technique to use to stabilize videos that are shaky.

    I previous posted in 2009 about a technique running an MS-Windows application under “wine”, which worked reasonably well. This was the application “VirtualDub” with the plugin “deshaker”.

    This current post is about a pure GNU/Linux technique, using the openSUSE packman packager packaged application “ffmpeg” and the library “libvidstab”.

    In general , the application is integrated ...

  5. 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 ...
