Fully Encrypted ArchLinux with Secure Boot on Yoga 920
The first laptops with the latest 8th generation Intel processors began to ship a few weeks ago. One of the strongest contenders is the Lenovo Yoga 920. The top end model features a 4K screen, 16GB of RAM, a 1TB NVMe drive, two Thunderbolt and one USB 3.0 ports, and is yet about the same thickness as the current MacBooks. It ships with Windows 10 out of the box, but that doesn’t mean you’re stuck with it.
Install ArchLinux on BeagleBone Black (Updated)
A few things have changed since I last wrote about installing ArchLinux on BeagleBone Black. This is an updated tutorial for release 4.13.0.
Install ArchLinux on BeagleBone Black
The installation of ArchLinux on ARM based embedded devices is well documented online, but I always forget the extra and optional steps that are assumed to be known.
ArchLinux iSCSI on BeagleBone Black
I recently hooked up a BeagleBone Black to an iSCSI target on a Synology NAS. The iscsi_tcp module is not being built in the legacy kernel by default. Newer versions of the kernel include it as a loadable module.
ArchLinux Internet Connection Sharing on BeagleBone Black
I have a BeagleBone Black connected directly to my desktop PC for development and testing. Occasionally, I need the BBB to connect to the internet, for example to download updated packages. This post describes how I am sharing the internet connection between the two computers.
ArchLinux AX88179 on BeagleBone Black
Last time I checked there was no built-in support for AX88179 chipsets in the ArchLinux kernel for BeagleBone Black yet. As these chips are now being used more widely in USB 3.0 adapters for gigabit ethernet, this post describes how to install the kernel driver manually.
ArchLinux Kernel Compilation on BeagleBone Black
I recently had to modify and recompile the kernels on my BBB’s. Cross-compilation is well documented on the internet, but what if you want to compile directly on the device? Here are the steps.
Restoring KDE Multiple Monitor Display Settings
When running multiple monitors on KDE, the current display settings may not be restored after reboot. Replacing xrandrmonitor with kscreen is one easy way to work around this.
