Raspberry Pi overview – 3.5 Watt Linux board


Raspberry Pi

Raspberry Pi is advertised as an ultra-inexpensive (~35 USD for model B) mini computer running Linux. That’s why I just had to give it a try :) It is especially interesting because it opens up a lot of possibilities combining Linux + small footprint + low memory consumption + connectivity + reasonable price. This article refers to model B of the board.

XEN logoA couple of not-so-obvious-at-first hints if one day you need to get Windows 7 Professional running as domU on XEN 4 HVM virtualization where your dom0 is Linux Debian Squeeze.

Just before you’ll call me an UPS maniac – here’s one more review. My current choice for 1-3 box server setup – APC Smart-UPS 1000VA USB & Serial 230V is not really similar to the SC1000 reviewed by me earlier, as the latter has a somewhat simplified design internally and also the box itself is different (standalone/desktop vs standalone/RM). And the non-SC is a full-sine model, and has a richer LED display. Continue reading ‘APC Smart 1000 (SUA1000I) with NUT / Linux’

Windows XP on Android


Windows XP on Samsung Galaxy S2 - bootingRecently I have been playing around to get Windows XP to run on my Android ARM phone. After a decent amount of research and work done (found out later that most of it was unnecessary) I managed to get proof of concept Windows XP to boot with usable resolution, network, and no sound ;) Like my colleague said: Just because I can ;) Continue reading ‘Windows XP on Android’

Huawei E1552 Modem with Debian Linux


Let’s assume that you need to install a multi-purpose firewall/server for your customer, but their ISP of choice is just too lazy to install their cabling to customer’s premises. Let’s also add that all you are left with is a Huawei E1552 Modem for HSPA/3G mobile packet data with a data plan SIM card. If so – here’s how I put it to use for persistent Internet uplink (this time with Debian squeeze) until the semi-decent ISP is ready. Continue reading ‘Huawei E1552 Modem with Debian Linux’
