Help me create the perfect creative commons resources directory.
  • I recently created a game and used some music that was Creative Commons.

    Man, what a pain in the balls it was to find stuff I liked.

    Many of the sites that indexed this music had crappy search engines in them. I needed to search for music by key and some sites just didn't do that.

    The bigger problems was that the sites felt very bloated and slow to me. And the one I finally found music on (looperman) required an account to download the song files.

    I suspect if I didn't have uBlock + Ad blocking in my router, that the sites would have been unusable and suffocating with ads.

    I have nothing to really help you with, but I hope you have success making a less shitty resource than what I found for CC music :).

  • PureOS Optional Subscription Added to Advance Development
  • I sincerely hope that this goes to the moon and back. Both for selfish reasons (I love my L5 but I really want Crimson) but also just for the Linux phone ecosystem.

    Mobian and PostmarketOS are doing wonderful work, though.

  • Do you poweroff your server during night / unused times?
  • 24/7, no UPS since I am cheap and lazy.

    My media center PC has a sleep schedule, though, and goes into suspend in early morning hours. I am sute the power it saves is next to nothing.

    I used to do this with my server, too, but scrapped that once I started needing it on randomly at night.

  • Not really sure I get Wayland
  • My understanding is that due to X11's design, all running GUI apps can "see" all the other apps. If you're running a malicious program in X11, it can easily snoop what else you are doing, log your keystrokes, etc.

    Wayland solves this through better design.

  • You can feel how cathartic this must have been for someone
  • Drive-thru

    Hi-way

    Tonite

    Rite

    These spellings are extremely pervasive at my workplace and they drive me nuts. Granted, many people there are non-native English speakers. But that just means the people teaching them English are doing it wrong.

  • Help choosing distro for old EOL Chromebook
  • I had a good experience with GalliumOS on an x86 Chromebook years ago: https://galliumos.org/

    I eventually switched it to run Arch but I will admit that it had WAY better support/stability with the touchscreen/touchpad on Gallium than with Arch.

    Edit: I just looked at the news page and realized it does not look to be actively maintained now.

  • What is your set up? How do you use Jellyfin?
  • Because I like it, I like having the AUR, and I have a few Arch machines so I put a shared pacman cache here.

    As a server, no issues really. Most apps besides Jellyfin and a TVHeadend run in Docker.

  • Suggestions for improving my watering setup?

    Current setup: We have four beautiful hens. We have a small (https://s3.amazonaws.com/images.ecwid.com/images/17432132/1357042818.jpg) metal container right now in our chicken run. It's set up on a small wooden platform that I built, and it sits on top of a water heater that turns on/off via a timer during the cold months (similar to this but different brand/model https://www.picclickimg.com/40EAAOSwewpmTaBO/Chicken-Water-Heater-Heated-Chicken-Waterer.webp). It works, but it's not a great solution.

    Problems:

    • It is maybe 1.5 years old max, and it already starting to rust along the bottom where they drink from.
    • 3 gallons is ok, but we don't have running water out near the chicken run, and so we need to bring this back and forth to the house to fill it up. It's fine in warm months (can fill from the hose), but it sucks in the winter since I need to bring it inside and fill it in the tub in our basement.
    • Even 4-5 inches off the ground, they kick a lot of dirt, feathers, and probably chicken shit in here. I spray it out clean with each re-fill.
    • The heater barely works to thaw out the bottom so they can drink. It works, but often I find I still need to go out with some warm water to break up the ice a bit.

    What I'd like:

    • Bigger container
    • Doesn't rust
    • Rain water collection?

    I'm open to any suggestions on products or DIY projects to help improve this for our chickens. Below is a picture of our chicken run so y'all can see what I have to work with.

    So, cool chicken-havers of Lemmy... Do you have any suggestions on how I can up my game here? Especially any recommendations on how I can do something to collect rainwater for this. Any guides that may have worked well for you. I'm open to any information.

    Update: Here is the fix, in case anyone comes across this later: go2rtc: streams: nursery: - "ffmpeg:rtsp://[email protected]:554/live/ch1#video=copy#audio=copy#audio=opus" webrtc: candidates: - <server-ip>:8555 The webrtc section got webrtc to work in the Frigate and video back in HASS. The #audio=copy#audio=opus got audio working in webrtc.

    Can anyone help me figure out Frigate/go2rtc

    I have two cameras in Frigate.

    One is a Raspberry Pi 3 running Monocle server, and this stopped working in Frigate some time back (driveway). The second is a Galayou G7 (nursery). The nursery camera is the one I am concerned about with this post.

    Problem: Up until a month or two ago (I must have ran an update but I don't know) the audio from the Galayou camera worked in Home Assistant. I'd like to get that working again. Some searching led me to try setting up go2rtc in my config.

    Here is my config before making any changes: mqtt: host: 192.168.1.10 cameras: nursery: ffmpeg: inputs: - path: rtsp://redacted:[email protected]:554/live/ch1 roles: - detect detect: width: 1280 height: 720 driveway: ffmpeg: inputs: - path: rtsp://192.168.1.240:554/recording/7824851880350319106/replay?trackid=8836591 roles: - detect detect: width: 1920 height: 1080

    This currently provides only jsmpeg video in Frigate. If I add something like this to the end: go2rtc: streams: nursery: - rtsp://redacted:[email protected]:554/live/ch1 this adds mse and webrtc as options in Frigate. But, mse plays only video, no audio. And webrtc loads neither audio nor video. I have tried adding lines like - "ffmpeg:nursery#video=h264#audio=aac" and also with opus but to no avail.

    Finally, if I ffplay rtsp://redacted:[email protected]:554/live/ch1 it loads audio/video without a problem. I'm also able to connect via ONVIF at onvif://192.168.1.241:8899 from onvif-gui.

    So, something is wrong in my Frigate config, and I don't know what. I'm hoping someone here is a little more familiar and can give me a pointer or two here?

    Free Embrighten Add-On Switch

    https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07RR9XBXJ?ref=ppx_yo2ov_dt_b_product_details&th=1

    I ordered one of these a few months back.

    Then I installed it.

    Then I realized that this wasn't the same Zigbee Dimmer switch I was already using elsewhere, and that this wouldn't work for me :)

    It's now past the return window for Amazon. I have zero use for this.

    tl;dr - Me dumb. If you live in the continental US and want this, I will pay the couple bucks to ship it to you so I can get it off my table.

    Program to send keystrokes to a remote PC

    Here is my problem:

    Our TV is connected to a SBC running a GNOME/Wayland desktop, where we watch Jellyfin and sometimes Netflix/Hulu through Firefox.

    I'd like to be able to trigger pause/play (space button) from Home Assistant, which is running on my home server.

    What I am thinking of would be a server/daemon running on the TV computer that my home server would be able to send keys to via a CLI tool (in this case the space key). I am surprised to find that I cannot locate any program like this.

    Can anyone provide any suggestions here?

    Other ideas:

    • Jellyfin's HA integration doesn't let me pause/play from it, and that still doesn't handle Hulu/Netflix.
    • I was able to get this working through SSH and there are tools like ydotool/wtype here that work, but I found waiting for SSH to be a bit slow to connect.

    Update: I got frustrated and coded up a solution: https://gitlab.com/neilsimp1/kbsrv

    Help with trouble.nvim - I want to cycle through modes

    Hi

    As the title suggests, I want to set something up so that while trouble is_open(), I have a keyboard shortcut that cycles through the various modes listed at https://github.com/folke/trouble.nvim/tree/main#commands.

    I see how I can assign shortcuts to jump directly to the different modes, but I want to remember only one shortcut.

    Writing a bit of lua to do this is easy enough, but I can't find any way to see what mode it's currently in, in order to write some function that toggles to the next one.

    Is there any way to accomplish this?

    Bonus question: Is there any way to get trouble to display on screen what mode it's currently in? Such as at the top or bottom of the trouble panel.

    Can anyone tell me what PC will draw more power?

    This is probably a stupid question, since 2 > 1, but here goes...

    I have a home server. It's a ComputerLINK 1U rack server I bought off eBay some years back. It has 2 CPUs, Intel Xeon E5645 2.4Ghz(https://ark.intel.com/content/www/us/en/ark/products/48768/intel-xeon-processor-e5645-12m-cache-2-40-ghz-5-86-gt-s-intel-qpi.html). It also has two 750W power supplies, but I have one unplugged. It also has RAM and 5 HDDs.

    I also have the guts of my old desktop PC. The CPU is an AMD FX8350 4Ghz(https://www.amd.com/en/products/cpu/fx-8350). The motherboard is some ASUS model, I forget and don't want to check right now. A potential PSU would be 500-600W range.

    My question: I am considering moving to use my old PC parts as a new home server. One benefit is to cut down on the noise (rack mount PC fans are LOUD). But the real gain I would want is on power savings. So, if RAM and the multiple HDDs all stay the same, but I moved them to the AMD/ASUS CPU/motherboard, can anyone definitively say this will be more power-efficient?

    I am not very knowledgeable when it comes to electrics or power consumption, and am just looking for someone to confirm for me. I am aware that the AMD CPU still isn't an excellent choice for an always-on machine, but it could be an improvement.

    First time grower, getting flowers but also lots of yellow leaves. Tips?

    Hi. I have two plants I've been growing all summer on my back patio. One is a Trainwreck, the other it either Trainwreck or Lamb's Breath. I am not sure which is which.

    The plants have grown pretty well all summer, are about 5.5 feet tall, and are starting to flower. One especially, the other only has a few little spindly guys at the nodes.

    Anyways... I've had a few yellow leaves and just yanked em off all summer without too much worry. Now though, with all the flowers budding, I am seeing a ton more yellow leaves and it's making me worry.

    I am using fish fertilizer and have been applying once a week.

    Should I add anything else? Should I not worry about it? My regular gardening knowledge says the plants need nitrogen but I'm afraid to use any other fertilizers since I've killed cannabis plants in the past this way.

    Is there any reason I cant just run the realtime kernel?

    I have a Scarlett Solo and I have found that with the linux-rt kernel, I get no noticeable latency recording audio, whereas there's a few ms delay on the main linux kernel.

    I am able to run other applications and play games just fine on linux-rt. Is there any reason not to just make this my default?

    Can I remove this pipe coming out of my lawn?

    We moved in to our house a couple years ago and were not told too much about a pipe that sticks out of our backyard.

    We are on a septic system and this pipe is sticking out from our leech field. The other houses on our block all have similar setups yet none (that I know) have a pipe coming up like ours.

    It was suggested to me that this may be safe to remove, or at least remove, cover the whole for a few weeks, and as long as there's no issues, then remove.

    It's not attached to anything and I can pretty easily pull it out and put it back in, although I've tended not to touch it much.

    Pipe: https://imgur.com/a/yrd6pYN Hole in the ground: https://imgur.com/a/NMXurUH

    Can anyone provide any insight here please?
