Re: Project : Tillamook

I actually have a "normal" Linux distro (Debian for MIPS) running in chroot on my Asus RT-N66U. Don't even need USB storage for that as this router has a built-in microSD card slot !
The CPU is too...

Re: HP Proliant ML110 G5 - CAUTION RISK OF FIRE (epic fail!)

Had a SATA connector cable burn up on me once due to bad connection. It was in a Raidsonic 3.5 inch HDD case. Fortunately, the SATA cable was the only victim.

3. Start10 for...

Re: How much do you hate your smartphone?

I do like and hate my Galaxy S4.
I like it because it's still a decent phone, despite it being quite old (released back in 2013).
I hate it because:
* Only 16 GB storage, only ~ 9GB of which is...

Re: Wireless not working in Ubuntu 1604 64bit

This has nothing to do with bits.
Firmware files run on devices themselves (eg. WiFi chips), not the host CPU.

Re: Wireless not working in Ubuntu 1604 64bit

That might be useful to install in case if you use 32-bit stuff, but the Wifi issue described sound more like a kernel or missing firmware issue to me.
Unless it's just the UI gadget that's not...

Re: Which of these machines would you favour?

Unless you plan on replacing the CPU, I would take Intel.
All AMD laptop chips I've encountered were pure crap. Haven't seen anything higher-end from AMD for a while in both desktop and laptop...

Re: Wireless not working in Ubuntu 1604 64bit

Can you scan for networks or is wifi completely dead ?
A dmesg log would help as well.

Re: TR-069 remote management port.

That's the catch. Many ISPs lock-down remote management options so that users can't disable them. I remember having to hack my ISP supplied DSL router (an ADB unit) to get full admin access so I...

Re: opinions on a icute 850w PSU

Looks like a rebadged low-end CWT with modular cables. I'm not an expert in PSUs, but I think this one should be usable for a budget build.
Definitely not an 850W though.

Re: Samsung Galaxy S7

Only Note 7 was recalled.

The first thing that comes in mind is a dead power IC. My S4 died in a similar fashion.
Your phone should still be under warranty, so the best thing to do would be to...

Re: 2 PSu's suspected of killing stuff (LP-6100D and FSP300-60BTV)

Not an expert here, but: LP-6100D is a Leadman (aka Powmax). Their PSUs are generally considered to be utter crap.

LP-6100 series was already mentioned before:...

Re: How to get Win 7 on FAT32?

Try using ImageX program to unpack install.wim from Windows 7 installation DVD to CF card. That's basically what the installer does.
However, using CF card as primary HDD will be very slow, unless...

Re: fuck HP - Inkjet printers reject low-budget cartridges

That sounds more like "the purpose of this update is to protect our revenue stream by banning the competition".
But I guess the effect will be opposite. People will just ditch HP inkjets if they...

Re: How has your main computer evolved?

My first PC was a 300 Mhz Mendocino Celeron with 32 MB RAM and a S3 Trio 3D GPU. Built in 1998 or 1999 (don't remember exactly). This system had a couple of RAM upgrades (to 64 MB, then to 128 MB)...

Re: Another Chinese junks

The interesting thing in that article is not that these PSUs are junk, but that they are essentially repackaged used PSUs.
It seems the Chinese have found a new way to make cheap power supplies.

Re: nvlddmkm.sys BSOD issue Windows 7 64 bit

It also depends on the stepping. Q6600 B3 produce way more heat than G0.
Also Q6600 is a Core 2 CPU - quite old by modern standards.

Re: Some "Vintage Iron" for you older PC guys

Good old times...
My first system had a 300 Mhz Celeron, 32 MB of RAM (later upgraded 64 MB), S3 Trio3D 4MB AGP video card and (IIRC) a Seagate 3.2 GB HDD.
Still have the CPU somewhere.

Re: Seagate 3TB lawsuit

While RAID (not 0) is not a backup, it's better than using a single HDD.
