2014-05-20T00:00:00ZStarting with the Cortex-A15, ARM extended the ARMv7 architecture to include virtualization extensions. In order to use KVM the Linux kernel must be booted in the new ARM HYP mode. If the kernel is booted in the traditional SVC mode then KVM will not work.
2011-11-14T00:00:00ZSolaris 11 completely changes how network interfaces are configured and managed. The Network Auto-Magic Daemon (NWAM) is now responsible for automatically configuring the network (all interfaces, wired and/or wifi) based on the combination of a specified network configuration profile and a location profile. These profiles can range from very complex to very simple.
2011-05-30T00:00:00ZAs a device driver developer I deal a lot with register values. Figuring out which bits are set can sometimes be really annoying. I've implemented a simple application that helps deal with this nuisance.
2011-05-23T00:00:00ZBack pain sucks! Let me repeat, back pain sucks!!! You don't realize how important your back is to your daily activities until it hurts... and when it hurts it mentally takes you out of the game. Your limitations and frustrations affect not only you but those around you as well. This was me until I had surgery. Here is my story.
2011-05-22T00:00:00ZThis video was taken last summer (2009) when my daughter, age 5, went on her first "real" roller coaster ride. The looping roller coaster California Screamin' at Disney's California Adventure. Hilarious.
2010-06-08T00:00:00ZBuilding any operating system from scratch is usually a daunting task. OpenSolaris is no exception. There are lots of steps that can easily be overlooked and here I attempt to simplify the entire process step by step.
2010-05-14T00:00:00ZHere is a mashup I cooked up one day while playing around with Sony Acid. Cutting music with loops is tons of fun and I really like what I did with this one.
2010-05-13T00:00:00ZI do a lot of Solaris and OpenSolaris driver development on x86 systems and there is nothing I hate more than debugging on a physically attached keyboard and monitor. A simple solution is to attach a KVM over IP dohickey but another (free) solution is to configure Solaris to use a serial console. This, of course, requires the Solaris box to be within "serial cable reach" length of the system you will be debugging from. Don't forget hooking up a console server to the serial port is pro...
