I’ve been trying to put together an app using KDevelop as my IDE. IDE-wise, it seems fine: all the usual stuff like syntax highlighting (of course) and code completion, etc. But I find its handling of the gnu autotools a bit rough. I haven’t found a way yet to specify a build order for files,… Continue reading KDevelop: so much promise, but a bit rough around the edges
port triggering with OpenWRT works!
I finally got around to compiling the ipt_TRIGGER kernel module with some logging in there, so I could tell where I was going wrong with my iptables commands. The correct iptables commands are: #iptables -t nat -A prerouting_wan -p tcp –dport 6881:6889 -j TRIGGER –trigger-type dnat #iptables -A forwarding_wan -p tcp –dport 6881:6889 -j TRIGGER… Continue reading port triggering with OpenWRT works!
port triggering iptables config
I think the relevant iptables commands for port triggering with Bittorrent are: #iptables -t nat -A prerouting_wan -p tcp –dport 6881:6889 -j TRIGGER –trigger-type dnat –trigger-proto tcp –trigger-match 6881 –trigger-relate 6881-6889 This tells the router to do NAT on the packets arriving on the WAN TCP ports 6881 through 6889 as allowed by the trigger… Continue reading port triggering iptables config
Now that I’ve got my new router set up (it’s working fine btw) I decided to dig a bit deeper into the firmware possibilities. Warning: this post is mostly martian, and it’s long. The first thing I wanted to investigate was the possibility of port triggering. Port triggering is an alternative to static port forwarding:… Continue reading kernel hacking
Lately my SMC2804WBR has started to play up a bit (arbitrarily causing loss of connectivity), so this weekend I finally got around to replacing it. Mrs Elbeno was complaining of having to power cycle it 2 or 3 times a day. Where wireless broadband routers are concerned, experience has taught me that once you get… Continue reading new router
Some Linux/Unix commands worth knowing…
It seems like not a day goes by when I don’t run across someone’s blog listing “top 10 Linux commands you must know” or something like it. I get the feeling these are mostly posted by people who switched to Linux recently and want to share the experience. I switched to Linux 12 years ago,… Continue reading Some Linux/Unix commands worth knowing…

Some things I’ve tried over the past week or so: Getting Second Life to work on Linux (compiling from source). Well, it worked in a very limited way, after a fashion. I didn’t get any sound (had to compile without FMod because v3.75 isn’t downloadable for 64-bit Linux). And there were some graphics artifacts too.… Continue reading more linux fiddlings
getting stuff working on Linux
Inspired by ‘s recent wibblings on Linux, I decided it was time to iron out my own wrinkles. So after a very little googling, I was able to get a bunch of stuff working that for one reason or another had broken when I upgraded from Dapper to Edgy. Sound works on the desktop again… Continue reading getting stuff working on Linux
5 hours' work, wasted
For the sake of 10 minutes. Because Mrs Elbeno insisted that I turn off the computer NOW and go to bed last night, and /tmp gets cleared on boot. Grrr. If you’re reading this, Mrs Elbeno, I’m never listening to you again over such matters!
