Pivos Xios DS Media Player Review!

Xios DSSo I’ve been using the Pivos Xios DS Media Player for a couple of weeks now and I think it’s time for my opinion about this little device. The Xios DS is an ultra slim media player based on Android and created by Pivos.

 

After unboxing and installing the device I was a little disappointed by the performance of the device. It was slow and sluggish. After flashing the device with the latest XBMC version 12, it was a lot better. The device handles XBMC very well and the device works perfectly fine to watch some movies on it.

All in all, I think it’s a good device for the price.

How to install your own Mumble server on any Linux distribution

Mumble LogoIn this tutorial I will teach you how you can host your own Mumble server on any Linux distribution. Mumble is a low-latency but high-quality voice communication application designed for gamers. This includes game linking, so voice from friendly players comes from the direction of their characters. It also has echo-cancellation.

 

In order to a Mumble, you’ll need a dedicated or virtual server with Linux and user access. Being root is not required.

  1. Get the latest murmur software from the official website: http://mumble.sourceforge.net/ (As I’m writing this tutorial, the latest version is ‘Static Linux Server: 1.2.3 (STABLE)’.)
  2. Extract the package in the desired directory.
  3. Configure the server by editing the ‘murmur.ini’ file.
  4. Chmod the ‘murmur.x86′ file to allow the owner to execute the file.
  5. Run your new Mumble server by typing ‘./murmur.x86′

That’s it! Your server should now be up and running. In order to stop the server, just run ps U <username> and kill the process id that’s used by murmur.x86.

High resolution League of Legends map

League of Legends LogoMany people have been asking us what method we use to train our ranked 5v5 team. Well, we usually watch replays from previous games and analyse champion picks. Another method we use is the high resolution League of Legends map on the wall. In the attachment below you’ll find the map as it is in the current patch. Hopefully this will help you and your team out to become better players. :-)

How to disable SELinux?

How do I disable SELinux in various Linux distributions?

You can disable SELinux permanently by changing ‘SELINUX=’ from enabled to disabled the /etc/selinux/config file. After this, save the file and reboot your server to disable SELinux permanently.

You check if it’s disabled by running the following command:

selinuxenabled && echo enabled || echo disabled

If it returns disabled, it is permanently disabled.
