    [SOLVED] Re: Can't Read Superblock

    The operant line is:

    for count in 1 2 3 4; do mkdir /mnt/sdb$count; mount /dev/sdb$count /mnt/sdb$count; done
    "sudo su" just grabs superuser privileges (because you need them to create the...

    Re: smilies [sigh]

    This, again, misses the point. I'm not looking to block
    the images. I'm trying to convey useful information, and the
    forum is setting me up for failure because it parses (on a fairly
    arbitrary...

    For posts more than a couple of paragraphs, I generally will preview. But for things shorter than that, I anticipate that the forum can't mangle it too badly with formatting, and so I just post and...

    Well. When the forum decides to exhibit really retarded behavior, it is VERY IMMEDIATELY noticeable, and so I'm sure to immediately hit "edit" and correct the (really stupid default) from smilies to...
  5. [ubuntu] Re: Cannot delete file with corrupted file name

    Maybe the literal:

    rm -f "Baldo_2006-07-01?gif"

    [edit]
    Of course the alternative is backup everything else of value, reformat the filesystem, and restore the content.

    Looking back, and thinking again about the original question:
    Have you considered copying the content of fat3, reformatting the partition as ext3 or similar, and copying the content back so Linux...

    [SOLVED] Re: mounting partitions with Guest user

    Interesting question.

    Possible solutions.
    1.) create a group "lsdiscs" (low security discs) and make all the users members of lsdiscs and chown the devices to group lsdiscs. Possible problem,...
  8. [all variants] Re: Keep video cache in Chrome even after closing/browsing away

    You could install a caching proxy on your machine and tell the browser to use the proxy instead of the direct connection.
    Of course, I don't know if youtube/others have flagged their...

    Well. A full boot probably takes a little longer than a fast boot and restore from hibernation. Though depending on how much (little) you're running on the server, a full boot may be faster than a...

    I don't always wrap information in Code blocks. Especially if I'm explaining something conversationally.

    [ubuntu] Re: SSH'ing as root from one VM to another

    Is the root account maybe configured to use a shell that is either not valid, or refuses login?

    If you've reconfigured anything, have you restarted the services (like SSH)?

  17. [SOLVED] Re: Gparted shows more free space than nautilus (way more)

    Well, I'll try a little math and see what happens.

    Disc 1, 1Tb (roughly, 1000Gb)
    931Gb usable after formatting (using 1024^3 bytes per real Gb) (as supplied by gparted in 1st post)
    818Gb used...
  18. [SOLVED] Re: Gparted shows more free space than nautilus (way more)

    EXT3 typically reserves 5% of the partition's size for superuser/root only access (and indirectly to help with preventing fragmentation). So if you're looking at the partitions with tools that see...

  20. [ubuntu] Re: Retrieving files from a corrupted USB stick

    The drive may have changed locations (virtually, if not physically), so it may be sdc, sdd, sde, etc.

    Back to the title of the thread, what happened to cause the "corruption" of the usb stick?
  21. [ubuntu] Re: Retrieving files from a corrupted USB stick

    [ubuntu] Re: Acid Rip keeps using subtitles?

    Personally, I use HandBrake. (http://handbrake.fr/)
    I don't recall if it is in the Ubuntu or debian repositories or if you have to add the Handbrake repository to install it.
