Installing the Brother HL-2070N printer in linux (more specifically my openSUSE installations) has been an intimidating task. Until now.
I found a simple guide here. Straight to the point, 2 min install, and bam, everything is working. Thanks Andrew!
Booting into runlevel 3 to install nvidia drivers:
- Press the E key for theedit screen.
- Find: /boot/vmlinuz
- Press the End key to move cursor to the end of the line
- Add “space” and 3 to the end of the line.
- F10 to reboot to runlevel 3
Adding the option “discard” to the fstab line for option settings is the trick. This only works with ext4 and xfs file systems
From my existing opensuse 12.1 install:
/dev/disk/by-id/ata-KINGSTON_SNV425S264GB_07TA50002211-part3 /home/ ext4 acl,user_xattr,noatime,discard 1 2
I took the plunge and moved part of my home storage to FreeNAS using ZFS to manage the files on it.
Now comes the tough part of managing a file system I know nothing about how to use (which on paper seems excellent).

A Home Fileserver using ZFS
I keep having issues every time I install VirtualBox on my machine, and figured this time I would document what I did to get the kernel modules to properly compile upon installation.
First make sure openSuSE is up to date
Then install kernel sources
zypper install gcc make automake autoconf kernel-source kernel-syms
First try I did not get eagle to install in a 64bit linux OS.
Gave up and installed it on a Win7 VM instead so I could start using it.
Tried again today, and figured it out.
The error I was getting initially was
/tmp/eagle-setup.16234/eagle-6.1.0/bin/eagle: error while loading shared libraries: libjpeg.so.8: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
The reason this message came up was because I needed to have the 32bit version of libjpeg-8 library installed. By default I guess opensuse only installs the 64bit version (since I’m running a 64bit OS).
Just had to go in the Yast -> Package Manager and search for libjpeg, and select the 32bit version of the libjpeg-8 libraries.
I recently had a memory card fail on me on a recent trip (the filesystem somehow got corrupted) and I could not access the photos on it. I put the CF memory card aside, and left it till I got home. Once home, I used PhotoRec (in linux)to scan and recover all my photos from the CF card.
The file name of the files is lost, but all I need to do is sort by date in Bibble (my RAW converter software), which uses the meta-data date to sort, so the file name is not that important.
