This site is not dedicated to mobile devices, however since it is in mobi TLD I'll try to adopt its content to be browsable on handheld with at least 600x* resolution.
This is the reason for a top ruler - to define width boundaries.
Otherwise - welcome to my place and hope at least something from here will be usefull to someone.
As the time passes I'm steadily approaching mobile technology area. Well, will see what is going to happen with all of this.
GPT - doing things right
To be honest - I'm absolutely not an authority to teach how to do things right in GUID Partition Table. But I did it wrong, and I corrected it, so maybe someone will find it useful.
I've recently bought probably the best laptop I've ever had - Lenovo E130, with probably, the worst OS I ever had - windows 8. Initially, knowing Czech distribution is in any case one of the worst in the world - I didn't bother much, and bough whatever model was available in local shops (you don't have a choice in Czech Republic really, never, only crappiest things available).
If you happen to be missing some nifty ripping software with bells and whistles, or urgently need to rip CD to some format -
I found icedax as a very handy tool for that.
Especially after trying some bellable and whistling soft which is trying to either guess CD info or summon it from CDDB - and always wrong,
while CD itself provides correct text.
While working on jack IPv6 network stack I've trapped onto bizarre getaddrinfo() behaviour - it was returning me address families in wrong order for passive nameless request. It appears people were trapping onto this bug since 2009 (at least that far I found references to this behaviour in mail-lists).
What if we want to set jack to be system service? I know, I know, I read all the fine manuals and a reason behind avoiding system sound daemon, whether it is pulse or jack. But hey - this is my PC, don't tell me what I cannot do!
If you use some system for long enough, passing through various release upgrades, installing and uninstalling packages - basically living and using - your system might start be bloated with various remnants of dependencies, unneeded packages, dragging back some relicts or even blocking some new deps. Very unpleasant fact.
If you're using dhcp for both ipv4 and ipv6 on ubuntu with wifi/wpa_supplicant you might have faced with weird issue with ifdown trying to release v6 (or v4, depends on ordering) lease and it finally hangs - since previous address family already brought interface down.
Life goes on, everythng changes. With new bluez tree fakehid was completely wiped out from bluetoothd userspace. Now, thanks to David Dillow ps3bt code lives in HID kernel code since commit 5844c1cdb630b537a2ecdf74dab2985e51dc1bd9. Let see how it works...
Once upon a time I've made XBMC based HTPC... oh, sorry, you know that story, do you?
Well, next thing I found was that pulseaudio was not working (it is really poorly documented, and that time I didn't have a clue how to deal with it). So I removed pulse leaving XBMC on pure ALSA. Which was working perfectly till it became too limited for me and my audio preferences. This was a time I got acquainted with JACK.
Now I can handle easily and conveniently pulseaudio, after breaking my head through scattered across the internet information, but it is the subject for another story. Because first we need to bind together XBMC and JACK using...
