Have posted the VMUFAT code to LKML – see here and similar.
It took me a while to work out how to do this, so I thought I should write it down for my own use and for anybody else who wants it. I have my SSH daemon running on a non-standard port and wanted to push to my git repository. The key is to add the… Read More Pushing to a remote git over a non-standard port
Update: Thanks to Mary Wimbury (@marywimbury) for pointing out that this was, of course, someone making fun of anti-equal marriage protestors – at the Massachusetts constitutional convention. Not even homophobes are likely to complain about beating the Nazis, are they?
The “string theory revolution” began in 1984 and I graduated with my astrophysics degree in 1987, perhaps unsurprisingly, having been taught nothing about it at all. But now, reading The Hidden Reality: Parallel Universes and the Deep Laws of the Cosmos, (a good book) I discover that we may all be living on a brane… Read More A question for a cosmologist about brane death
Obviously the whole world is waiting for VMUFAT to hit the streets, but it looks as though it will have to hold its collective breath a little longer, as I have hit more delays. Working with big volumes (several megabytes) reveals the code eats a lot of memory in ways I don’t yet fully understand.… Read More More delays for VMUFAT
It’s like the curse of the software demonstration: it doesn’t break until then. I discovered as soon as I posted that I was ready to (try to) push the VMUFAT stuff up to main line that there was a bug in the software. Very large VMUFAT volumes were not being properly handled. But I think… Read More Spoke too soon (of course)
About a decade ago I first wrote some Linux kernel code that would handle the filesystem on the little slab of flash storage that came with a SEGA Dreamcast Visual Memory Unit (VMU). A few attempts to get this in the kernel mainline then followed. It was a bruising experience and unsuccessful. But I am… Read More VMUFAT: almost done (I hope)
