Re: Spam PMs

Thank you Andi.

Yes it has been really bad lately with the spam. It comes and goes in waves.

A couple of years ago only solution that worked was not having any new members join the forum for a period of time.

Every day now we have 10 and up new spammers here.

Re: Annual ALSA Appeal

the rabbit hole never ends! That is what I like about Linux more than Windows. ;) Today's endeavor has been 1 - Updating Armbian on a TVBox server running with an Octocore ARM CPU. I am impressed with what these boxes can do (made up 3 headless Ubuntu servers now for automation) 2 - Got a BeeLink P...

Re: Joggler Screen Saver

So as I was having problems with the Joggler being used as a screen saver redid the eMMC. It seems to boot faster and it cold boots to Squeezeplayer every time. I resized the second partition making it smaller by some 30Mb and deleted the Fat16 partition and wrote it as a Fat32 partition giving it t...

Re: Joggler Screen Saver

Smallest here before desktop is 965Mb on a 1Gb eMMC. Thinking you can get by installing Squeezeplayer on the 2 Gb emmc (old OS though) and then add a small desktop to it. That said had my squeezeplayer / screen saver / O2 Joggler / 1Gb emmc working well for two days and then no boot. Gonna try a low...

Re: Joggler Screen Saver

Well trying your way Smiley with a tweak. Found an old Joggler which was apart and sort of modded with an extra USB port and trashed traces for a ZIF connector. Reinstalled the wireless stick and reglued two wires for wireless stuff. Steps: 1 - writing a MAC address first redoing boot bios to Seabio...

Thank you Smiley.

Yes will give this one a try to see if it works on the embedded 1Gb eMMC version of Linux. Might be able to install the lite server and add just what I need for this.

Re: Joggler for sale

Yes here utilize POE power splitters for Gb connectivity to the Joggler which have worked now for years. I only do this for LAN wired Jogglers. For wireless jogglers continue to utilize the Openpeak PS. Any 2 AMP 5DC regulated power supply will work with these. All Electronics has UK style 2 AMP pow...

Yes if you want you to you can purchase a carpc combo intelligent power supply with USB sensor and amp switch board to do this.

Re: Joggler Screen Saver

Thank you Andy.

Yes; just want to have a 24/7 screen saver on the Joggler and do a cron job to shut off the screen after hours for mom (~90) here.

Pictures will be either a share or usb stick and access to update will be remote SSH.

Re: Cisco Cius/OpenPeak OpenTablet 7

I do not have one but do see a bunch of them on Ebay with cradle and hand set these days. Not a good deal right now here in the US at over $50 USD. They are old and used and worth maybe $30 such that I am waiting. Over the years here have not been impressed with consumer Cisco labeled hardware (all ...

Joggler Screen Saver

Looking for an easy way to turn a Joggler (unmodified) in to a screen saver. All I want is SSH to be able to copy pictures to it.

IE: such that when it boots up it goes directly to a screen saver...no menu nothing else...

This is a little project for gifting Jogglers.

Re: Best USB stick for Joggler?

For a while here was using an oversized overpriced true SSD USB stick. I would install these inside and remove the wireless USB stick. I also removed the shell casing for these to fit inside of the Joggler. These did draw more power than a regular USB stick. I also modded one Joggler with another in...

That said the original installation to SSD came from Buzz's USB XUbuntu image...copying it over to the SSD drive and redoing the EFI boot partition. Note...
