DD-WRT on the Senao EnGenius wireless Access Point / Client Bridge

Senao EnGenius EOC-5610

I finally broke down and bought myself my very own all-in-one outdoor wireless access point. I decided to pick up the Senao EnGenius EOC-5610 because it obviously supports the ever so powerful DD-WRT firmware. This thing is really tricked out. Not only does it utilize the Atheros AR2313 wireless chipset (yay for aircrack-ng), it also has a built in 8db internal omni-directional antenna and 8mb of storage if you ever wanted to capture some yummy wireless packets.

In this article, i walk you through installing DD-WRT Professional on a Senao EnGenius EOC-5610 wireless access point / client bridge.

The Perfect Server - Ubuntu Linux 9.04 32bit

What is the perfect linux server?

The perfect linux server to me is something that can maintain all of my downloads, whatever it may be (Torrent, newsgroups, soulseek, ect) that can be controlled and accessed from VPN, LAN or Internet via HTTP... and have it all running when it boots up! (That was the hardest part actually)

In this video tutorial, i walk you through installing:

- Webmin (HTTP Adminstration of your server)

- Torrentflux (HTTP Front-end for Torrent downloads)

- SABnzbd Plus (HTTP Front-end for Newsgroup downloads)

- irssi (Text based IRC Chat client)

- Museek (Soulseek music download daemon)

- Eggdrop IRC Bot (*does the robot*)

- Hamachi VPN (Free and easy VPN solution that even my grandma can understand)

Install Amarok2 on Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic

Amarok is a free software music player for Linux and other varieties of Unix, as well as Windows since version 2.0 (through KDE for Windows). It makes use of core components from the K Desktop Environment, but is released independently of the central KDE release cycle.

A new major version of Amarok, version 2.0, was released on December 12, 2008, which was a complete aesthetic and functional redesign of Amarok 1.4. On June 3, 2009, version 2.1 was released which reintroduced a few of the 1.4 features which had been missing from the initial 2.0 release, and introduced some features such as native ReplayGain support for the first time.

In this tutorial, i will walk you through installing the beautiful new Amarok 2.2 on Ubuntu Linux 9.10 Desktop.

Update: Runes of Magic on Ubuntu Linux

In my previous post, i walked you through getting Runes of Magic running on Ubuntu Linux via Wine. Recently, as most MMORPG games have, they updated their client and i found that it broke the game running on linux. When i would launch the game (client.exe) it would just show the background animation and not present the usual EULA and Login. A quick wine registry hack solved this issue.

Chromium on Ubuntu 8.10 / 9.04

Google Chrome?

No. Chromium. Chromium is an open-source browser project that aims to build a safer, faster, and more stable way for all Internet users to experience the web. This site contains design documents, architecture overviews, testing information, and more to help you learn to build and work with the Chromium source code. Google Chrome is built with open source code from Chromium.

Right off the bat, Chromium wanted to import all my settings (Bookmarks, Saved Passwords, ect) and i was able to dig through some of the new options, like setting the theme to match your GTK+ theme! Also, as you may already know, this thing is blazing fast. Pages load into individual processes as well, so if a pages freezes up and crashes on you, just that tab goes away - not your entire browser!

In this article, i will walk you through installing the open source Chromium web browser on Ubuntu Desktop Linux 8.10 and 9.04.
