Building HAVP On CentOS 5.x

Building HAVP On CentOS 5.x

HAVP (HTTP Antivirus Proxy) is a proxy with a ClamAV anti-virus scanner. The main aims are continuous, non-blocking downloads and smooth scanning of dynamic and password protected HTTP traffic. Havp antivirus proxy has a parent and transparent proxy mode. It can be used with squid or standalone. Its older rpms & src.rpms (0.86) don't work (i.e. conflict with the updated clamav), and newer rpm * src.rpm don't exist yet. So HAVP needs to be re-compiled. This guide shows how to build HAVP on CentOS 5.x.

Set Up A Linux PlayStation 3 Media Server (CentOS 5.2)

Set Up A Linux PlayStation 3 Media Server (CentOS 5.2)

The Sony PlayStation 3 is a DLNA compatible device, DLNA is a framework where home electronics can share digital media and content seamlessly. This tutorial is a followup to the previous howto on Ubuntu. Given that I like most others use CentOS as their server distribution of choice, I find it fitting to run my DLNA server on it as well. Although several other open source media servers exist, I chose to use Fuppes due to its ease of use as well as built in support for transcoding.
