In this category I will be providing guidance on putting together different types of computer systems based on my personal experience. Desktops and servers covered here will most likely be Linux/Unix based, as I don’t really do MAC, and the only Windows computer I use is for gaming. Note: I plan to move to a Linux based computer for gaming soon, so stay tuned.
Just performed an upgrade (at least I think so) of my local DNS server form a Raspberry Pi 3B to a 2nd generation Intel NUC. Had to do a littel repair work first, as the NUC was giving POST errors.
In this exercise I will attempt to dual boot a laptop using Microsoft Windows 11 and Arch Linux. This laptop will be a daily driver for use in both the home and the field. Many people I work with are set in there ways and not willing to try something different, hence the need for Microsoft Windows. (more…)
The second part to my previous video on setting up a Minetest server on Arch Linux. This video is more about configuration and loading mods, as the previous video covered initial setup. Also discussed are the advantages and disadvantageous of using the Minetest GUI server/host feature.
A followup to my previous video on Minetest, we install a server on a base Arch Linux install in this video. Admittedly this is a lot more command line oriented, and will not be for everyone.
If the goal is just a server, then the Minetest client will work on pretty much any platform. If you are looking to go extremely light weight, then this type of install might be for you.
Attached is a link to a video I released about my experiences, so far, running Minetest as an alternative to Mindcraft.
