[News] New GNU/Linux-based Media Centre

Hash: SHA1

Freeview Issues Holds Up New Topfield Linux Media Centre

,----[ Quote ]
| Set top box maker Topfield is set to release a brand new Linux media centre 
| that will deliver content management via a new interactive software offering. 
| However the box has been stalled due to issues over Freeview.  



The BoxeeBox Cookbook

,----[ Quote ]
| Inspired by Roku’s awesome Netflix video download box and impressed with
| Boxee’s free A/V media center platform, it was merely a matter of time before
| I’d create the BoxeeBox, an Ubuntu-powered HTPC that I call my “one box to
| rule them all.” Here’s how it’s done.


Using Your Linux Computer As A Media Center (Part 1)

,----[ Quote ]
| While a full Linux distro comes in a size of up to 700MB, the ISO of GeeXboX
| is only 9MB and it comes with a complete and automatic hardware detection,
| thus does not require any drivers to be added. It supports playback of nearly
| any kind of audio/video and image files and all known codecs and containers
| are shipped in, allowing playing them through various physical supports,
| either CD, DVD, HDD, LAN or internet.


Some Linux backup utilities

,----[ Quote ]
| For some years I’ve been backing up my various Linux-based servers, websites
| etc using a custom script which makes incremental tar-based backups of key
| directory hierarchies, dumps some MySQL databases, and then copies the lot to
| a remote machine using scp or rsync. We run this each night using cron. It’s
| worked well, but it’s becoming rather spaghetti-like since we run some
| version of it on several machines, copying stuff to several other machines.
| And the process of pruning old backups to keep disk usage under control at
| both the sources and the destinations is somewhat haphazard.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
