Re: Webcam driver compilation on B3

Hi Gordon, many thanks for you taking time to check on this issue, and giving me a direction. So I thought I need just the kernel headers for the driver compilation, and so I installed 'bubba3-kernel-headers' package. What you're saying is that I need to d/l 2.6.39.4-11 kernel source, apply bubba-sp...

Re: Webcam driver compilation on B3

Doesn't it ever happen to you to encounter a problem that seems quite trivial for a person with specific knowledge, but might be a bit hard for you solve? Do you know how to perfectly hammer forge a knife? I don't, but I know people for who it would be very easy. I can start to learn, but without he...

Re: Webcam driver compilation on B3

Hi Ubi, I don't think I deserve your ridicule. I didn't said anywhere that I _expect_ help, nor I want or need anyone to "bow" to my needs. It happened that I helped many people with problems that were not particularly interesting for me, but I had the knowledge and I shared it, so I think asking fo...

Re: Webcam driver compilation on B3

Guys, is it TL;DR? I mean: I think the problem is quite simple for someone who compiled more drivers&kernels that I did. I think that, for one, Gordon would probably be able to help me, and I'd learn much in the process... But anyone else is welcome, too. Please help me. At least point me to a direc...

Webcam driver compilation on B3

I need some help with my fight :-) I have (very) old QuickCam Messenger USB camera, and I wanted to make it work. On the outside, seems to work well: [1790608.834055] usb 1-1.2: new full speed USB device number 8 using orion-ehci [1790608.946727] STV06xx: Probing for a stv06xx device [1790608.951641...

Re: Adblocking for B3

All right, so here we go - based on http://sfxpt.wordpress.com/2011/02/21/the-best-ad-blocking-method/, with some minor modifications. Gordon, you can't use the same IP address (at least in my method), cause DNS server will not tell you port of the connection - so the iptables rule will prevent you ...

Re: Adblocking for B3

You're right, somehow I haven't thought of that.

As for Howto - once I'm done, I'll write that down here - hope that's OK :-)

Adblocking for B3

I want to setup network-wide ad-blocking using B3. I was planning on using the following guide: http://sfxpt.wordpress.com/2011/02/21/the-best-ad-blocking-method/ I need some additional information about bubba-specific configuration to make it work. I would like to make pixelserv listen on an IP ali...

Re: Kernel compiled for arm4 or arm7?

Thanks, Johannes - not having B3, I could not check CPU capabilities.

Kernel compiled for arm4 or arm7?

Hi everyone, I was researching B3 today (I don't own one yet), and I came upon the following comment (made in 2011): On a side note, it’s generally a bad idea these days to use Debian for arm platforms, as they compile for an old arm4 standard. It’ll work, but you get a massive boost using Ubuntu’s ...
