Linux Journal Contents #160, August 2007
Have we got a cool project for you! We can't bring back the smell and the chaotic sounds of the 80s arcades, but we will show you how to convert an arcade enclosure to provide a Linux-based bonanza of arcade games. Speaking of games, what do you get when you combine racks of PlayStation 3 machines with Yellow Dog Linux? Processing power, and lots of it. Read all about the Terra Soft super-computing cluster built around this so-called game console.
As always, there's much more. Follow our instructions to create a virtual private network for your Nokia E61 phone, or use Linux to build a next-generation residential gateway.
