Last day of Spring 2024

Goodbye spring, hello summer.

Had a nice walk today, but almost didn’t make 10k steps and forgot to post on my blog.

As I post I am at 10020 steps, barely made it.

Anyway, really nice day, had a good one. Day off too because it was Juneteenth.

Going Through Builds

I am able to build my prime home server ok, but the configuration is the hard part.

Can’t seem to get ldap right.

But I am slowly getting it, going through bunch of install an reinstalls.

May switch to a VM though, been physical mostly.

Father’s Day 2024

Kind of chilled today, no hard work, just small stuff.

As of this post i have not completed my steps, but am close, sitting at 8500.

Reduced the amount of cameras on my NVR. I don’t think it is handling the load.

Interesting Week

This week was weird, the huge one was that my son graduated, but another one is my son got to see someone run parkrun in under 15 minutes.

It was incredible, the scene in Top Gun 2 Maverick where he shows the young fliers that speeding through the canyon was possible. My son felt like that this morning.

Afterwards went to RePC and picked up some new 1L boxes, I gonna have a Lenovo M900, HP Elitedesk 800 G2 and G3, and a Dell Optiplex 3050 for testing.

Another thing I found was a 16 port LVM with keyboard and monitor. Been wanting one forever.

All this is possible because I won 4k last night off of 160 bet.

Was a great week.

Off My Game

Dunno if it is a relapse or just tired, maybe not getting enough sleep, but I feel off my game lately, like I need more rest than usual.

Been sleeping late, and getting up, maybe about 6 hours of sleep.

Come Sunday I want to sleep in.

Tomorrow got park run.

Hit gym today, treadmill for an hour close to finishing my steps. By the time I get to my car I will hit 10k steps.

No More Kids in School

OK still got college, but officially, got no more kids in public school.

As of today, my youngest child has a diploma, I cried a lot when I saw him walking.

So he has graduated.

That marked the end of my parental requirements.

Still got college like I said, but that is a choice not a requirement.

M.2 Coral Working

So it was incompatible code.

Anyway I got my M.2 Coral working. The inference on that thing is low. Down to 6.7ms. The USB one is hanging around at 28.4ms.

Here is how I did it

First I enabled the google-coral-dkms, installed it

sudo dnf copr enable kylegospo/google-coral-dkms
sudo dnf install gasket-dkms

Then I modified the code in gasket_core.c which had some incompatibilities with the kernel I was using.

The issue was this https://github.com/KyleGospo/gasket-dkms/issues/7

So in the file gasket_core.c I removed this

-#if LINUX_VERSION_CODE < KERNEL_VERSION(6, 4, 0)
-    internal->class = class_create(driver_desc->module, driver_desc->name);
-#else
-    inte

And replaced it with

+       internal->class = class_create(driver_desc->name);

Then I did

dkms autoinstall
modprobe apex
modprobe gasket

And it worked, there was a /dev/apex device

I then enabled it in the config.yml for frigate itself

detectors:
  coral_usb:
    type: edgetpu
    device: usb
  coral_pci:
    type: edgetpu
    device: pci

And enabled it in docker to pass through

    volumes:
      - /dev:/dev

Seems complicated, but figured it out.

Son’s Official Last Day of Class

I dropped him off one last time to high school. Captured the moment.

Tomorrow he has commencement practice and Wednesday is the real deal.

Tomorrow I suspect will be busy.

Got my Coral m.2 cards today, have trouble getting them to work with Rocky 9. Getting them to work with USB is definitely easier. Need to compile the kernel module to get it to work.

Haven’t compiled a kernel module in years.
