Together with some good guys we added support for Kimax U25AWF-H1 WiFi HDD case to LEDE. You can see my pull request here and commit here. This firmware also works on my Blueendless U-35WF. If you have this hardware you can try it. Finally, here are some photos of my devices guts.
If you need to periodically run some job in OpenShift you have several options. Continue reading Cron jobs in OpenShift
If you are interrested in security devices this post may be for you. Recently I’ve found a software which makes a GPG security device out of a STM32. It’s called Gnuk. You just need a compatible board, programmer, flash the firmware and you are ready to go. I was just hoping to find some cheap device to flash to play with it.
Last days I’ve been experimenting with various features of OPI. One thing I’ve always been interested in is HW encoding. There is some information on linux sunxi wiki on this topic ( ), which say that it’s not something straightforward and opensource.
IP multicast is an interesting technology. It’s main purpose is to
save network bandwidth as much as possible – traffic is sent to hosts
which asked for it only (as opposed to broadcast). On the other
side, you need smarter (manageable) switches and separate and
non-trivial configuration on both routers and switches. Even more
complicated it is when you try to make it work over VPN. Continue reading Multicast over “stupid” networks
This weekend I was thinking how to make my webcam connected to
OrangePI send a picture “on demand”. There are daemons (e.g. motion or
webcam-mjpg) which do this but they capture images even when you are not
watching and I wanted to avoid this. There are also projects (fswebcam)
which are able to take single picture, save it to disk and end. I just
needed to run it after http request and send back the image. Installing
full webserver with some kind of interpreter (php, lua,…) seemed to me
like an overkill. So I came to an idea to use inetd.
And this is how I did.
this post will be about my homemade IoT thermostat. The goal was to not install any cables (because I live in a rented flat), to go really cheap and to be able to set the temperature from anywhere. I’ll also give you some tips you should think about when building your own. Let’s get started.
since I found, that Debian chroot on OpenELEC is not the best solution, I tried to do it vice-versa. This is what I needed to do.
I have an OrangePi running jernej’s OpenELEC build connected to my TV. It works very well and stable, but on the other side, you can’t do much more with it because OE is very limited Linux distribution. This is a short guide how to run standard Debian services (nginx, samba, openvpn, … anything) in Debian chroot. Continue reading OrangePi: Installing Debian chroot into OpenELEC
I have a favorite cheap chinese router based on RT5350 (running OpenWRT).
Recently, I was wondering, why I can’t get WiFi on a few of them working. I have one piece running quite old (4xxx svn) OpenWRT where the WiFi works OK. So I tried to compile exactly the same version and install it on the non working piece. I also put the same wifi config there but nothing. It didn’t work.
