Bin and Cue Support for Linux

Filed under: Quick Linux Tutorials — at 2:35 pm on Tuesday, March 18, 2008

If you have a bin/cue image that you need to use under Linux you may be in for a surprise. I recently downloaded a copy of a game that I owned but was too scratched to use. The problem was the game came in bin / cue format. To fix this I just used a nifty little program called bchunk and converted it to ISO. It can be found here:

I would really like to find a way to mount bin and cue images under Linux but so far I’m not having any luck. I’m wondering if with some modification the bchunk program could be used with fuse.

Linux Journal Issue 162 October 2007

Filed under: General Linux — at 11:50 pm on Tuesday, September 11, 2007

I just got my Linux Journal October 2007 edition yesterday. I have glanced over it but haven’t had a chance to read any of the articles yet.Two things off of the bat caught my eye. If you’ve seen the cover you are probably thinking that the first thing that I am interested in is the Trolltech Greenphone. While it was the first thing I saw, it is not the first thing that I want to read. The first article that I want to read is the FS-Cache and FUSE for Media Playback QoS. This seems like something that I could use. I use SSHFS all the time but would love to be able to cache files so that I do not have to use mplayer to cache media files.

I’ll give it a read over and see if I can successfully deploy it and let you know how it turns out.
