  • Reverse engineered PlayStation classic Driver 2 reimplementation has a Beta out now

    Originally PlayStation exclusive and later ported to the Game Boy Advanced, Driver 2 lives on again with the REDRIVER2 game engine reimplementation project.

    We did cover this somewhat recently but it was still a bit rough. Now though, there's a brand new release up that should be quite a lot smoother! REDRIVER2 Beta 1 adds in quite a lot of new features and some great sounding bug fixes to make the experience more enjoyable. There's also been a number of optimizations, the fullscreen map should look prettier, Flatpak support on Linux, ALT+Enter will toggle Fullscreen, controller configuration and much more.

  • Mighty Goose looks like a stupidly entertaining colourful run and gun game | GamingOnLinux

    Mighty Goose from Blastmode, MP2 Games and PLAYISM was announced recently ready for release on June 5. It looks incredible and it will be supported on Linux.

    A fast paced run & gun shooter starring a bounty hunter Goose. Use epic weapons and devastating war machines to battle against screen filling bosses and hordes of enemies. At the core Mighty Goose is a tight side scrolling run & gun shooter that will test your skill, timing, reflexes. Building upon that solid arcade base, the game adds a ton of crazy weapons, warmachines, upgrades and secrets.

  • Play the Busy Beaver Game through a simulator

    It's hard to find a game that combines the difficulty of, say, Dark Souls with the elegance of Conway's Game of Life. In a 1962 paper, Hungarian mathematician Tibor Radó came up with just such a game, which he called the Busy Beaver Game (BBG).

    To play BBG is to create a program that writes 1s on a machine's tape whose cells initially hold 0s; the 1s need not be consecutive, but the program must halt for the 1s to count. The winning program has the most 1s on its tape after halting.

    I'll start with an overview of the machine, its programming language, and the game's constraints.

  • How To Install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 9 - idroot

    In this tutorial, we will show you how to install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 9. For those of you who didn’t know, MongoDB is a high-performance, highly scalable document-oriented NoSQL database. Unlike in SQL databases where data is stored in rows and columns inside tables, in MongoDB, data is structured in JSON-like format inside records which are referred to as documents. The open-source attribute of MongoDB as a database software makes it an ideal candidate for almost any database-related project. This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of the MongoDB NoSQL database on AlmaLinux 9. You can follow the same instructions for CentOS and Rocky Linux.

  • Self-host a Ghost Blog With Traefik

    Ghost is a very popular open-source content management system. Started as an alternative to WordPress and it went on to become an alternative to Substack by focusing on membership and newsletter. The creators of Ghost offer managed Pro hosting but it may not fit everyone's budget. Alternatively, you can self-host it on your own cloud servers. On Linux handbook, we already have a guide on deploying Ghost with Docker in a reverse proxy setup. Instead of Ngnix reverse proxy, you can also use another software called Traefik with Docker. It is a popular open-source cloud-native application proxy, API Gateway, Edge-router, and more. I use Traefik to secure my websites using an SSL certificate obtained from Let's Encrypt. Once deployed, Traefik can automatically manage your certificates and their renewals. In this tutorial, I'll share the necessary steps for deploying a Ghost blog with Docker and Traefik.
