Sup /tech/ i have some questions: Why use MIPS? What's the difference between any Intel or AMD processor and MIPS. I am about to install Linux on my old PS2 but actually i have no idea if it's worth it or not. Tell me what you know

It looks like MIPS is used as a special instruction set for the PS2 and other things, though I suggest you take a look at it yourself.

Well, i did read Wikipedia but also wanted to know from you guys what you know about it, for what you use it and if it's good/better whatever.

>> No.1931   [Delete]   [Edit]

tl;dr except unless you plan on doing certain mobile/embedded development or just general fucking around there aren't too many reasons to learn any embedded technologies or such architectures (ARM).

In short, there's no reason to install Linux on your PS2 except for the absolute novelty of it. I wouldn't even call it much of an educational experience.

Thanks for the info. ... not sure about development on embedded systems. I am planing 2 Linux projects (private) and it would be nice to see them running on embedded system but if I think about it, those projects aren't ment for embedded systems.

Not much. I didn't have the right tools so I had to rip it apart with my hands.

So I'm looking to install an antivirus program into a flash drive so I can just pop it in a computer and do a scan. What do you recommend?

4 posts and 1 images omitted. Click Reply to view.
>> No.1489   [Delete]   [Edit]

try this, should run off a thumb drive http://www.clamwin.com/ . If not I'm sure I saw a package on portableapps.

>> No.1513   [Delete]   [Edit]

HouseCall 7 is a nice program. its just an .exe. it auto updates its virus database. easily runs from a thumb drive. I also recommend HiJackThis. Its all Under "free tools" at http://free.antivirus.com/

>> No.1514   [Delete]   [Edit]

I am also interested in this :V


that says you have to scan files manually, though.

>> No.1888   [Delete]   [Edit]

install gentoo

>> No.1893   [Delete]   [Edit]


I suggest the PortableApps package of ClamWin, or a bootable USB. Two nice bootable discs that can be put on USB are Ultimate Boot CD and Hiren's Boot CD. There are also plenty of great Linux distros, those are incredibly easy to install by using the program Unetbootin.

Let's say I have a room with speakers A,B,C,D, and E set up in this configuration with an assumed subwoofer F somewhere. I have a television on the north wall of the room and a PC on the east. I would like to have both the TV and the PC connected to the system. The TV will use all speakers ABCDEF as a normal 5.1 system and, this is where it gets tricky, I would like the PC to use the same system using a 2.0 stereo configuration using speakers C and E as Left and Right respectively. How would you best suggest I solve this problem?

>> No.1864   [Delete]   [Edit]

You may be able to wire them up normally, and just hook C & E up to the PC normally. You may need to add a couple of resistors though, depending on the inclination of the current to 'cheat' and skip the speaker.

Try buying a Radio-CD with USB and MP3. Throw that shit to the trash.

I'd just get a new one. Radio Shack sells cassette adapters, but often waaaay overpriced. If you're in the States, try the electronics section of your local interstate truckstop (TA, Loves, etc). Failing that, check the car audio section of your local retail store/electronics boutique.
And, of course, as a last resort, Google and shop online. Good hunting.


That's so yesterday. Hi-def wax cylinders are the way of the future.

Here is something I have never need to do until reciently: remotely connect to my home desktop from my laptop from a long distance. All I really want to do is access music and anime to play while I'm waiting around. I was wondering if anyone had any pretty cool solutions for this.

I don't know about WinAMP (I guess it might work), I don't know too much about how to use it, I use VLC. You could forward the ports required, and set up VLC to stream what you want. Or you could set up a web server on your computer and download them over HTTP. The latter would be a better idea, it won't be choppy, you'll have the whole file.

VLC could work, if I could figure out how to foward the ports I guess, but that doesn't solve the music problem. As far as setting up the web server, that sort of defeats the purpose.

>> No.1843   [Delete]   [Edit]

i use
http://ampache.org/ and http://openvpn.net/

which distro are you running OP it is really easy in Ubuntu?

>> No.1844   [Delete]   [Edit]

LogMeIn is a pretty simple solution, though I'm not sure if the performance will be suitable for viewing the anime on the computer (mostly due to the upload speed). You can do pretty much anything with the free version.

>> No.1845   [Delete]   [Edit]

Read up on Winamp Remote, that might be useful to you.
