  1. [server] Re: Time to build a server with old hardware.

    I don't care about dismounting so I haven't seen this issue. The only time I dismount file systems is when rebooting.
  2. [server] Re: Time to build a server with old hardware.

    I found the NFS guide way too lengthy and complex for simple applications. So I posted this in recent thread as an alternative:...
  3. [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu 20.04 takes long time to boot

    Replacing the boot drive with an SSD can greatly improve boot times. Newegg runs sales on SSD drives all the time. I upgraded two laptops with these:...
  4. Re: Which brand of printers should I stick to?

    I have a Brother HL-3170CDW. Only modification I needed to make was to set the printer into Postscript emulation to get it to print envelopes correctly.

    The printer is directly wired with...
  5. Re: Is there a guide somewhere detailing each item in the startup applications app?

    Are you desperate for free space? If not, don't bother.

    "sudo systemctl list-units" will list all the services managed by systemd and their current statuses. Here's snippet from my Kubuntu 20.04...
  6. [ubuntu] Re: Getting SYSINFO on new installation of 20.10

    Have you tried lshw? It will give you a very extensive audit of your machine's hardware. Run it with sudo.
  7. [server] Re: Time to build a server with old hardware.

    Sounds like you're basically interested in building a server to share files, not run mail or web or DNS services.

    If so, I suggest installing a desktop version of Ubuntu, then adding the Samba and...

    [ubuntu] Re: configuring isc-dhcp-server

    Try specifying the interface on the command line. I haven't used dhcpd for a while myself, but I recall it was as simple as:


    /usr/sbin/dhcpd eth1
  9. [xubuntu] Re: Shared files all seen as folders on client machine

    "Creating a mount point" means just creating an empty directory to which the remote share will be attached. So in the example I gave, you would run


    sudo mkdir /media/remote_home

    Otherwise...

  11. [ubuntu] Re: I received and odd email security notice:confused:

    Have you looked at the headers yet?
  12. [xubuntu] Re: Shared files all seen as folders on client machine

    I think it's easier than implementing Samba. Plus NFS is native to *nix systems and preserves things like user and group permissions and modification dates.

    Install nfs-kernel-server on the server...

    Re: NFS Connection Hang

    Use "mount -v" to see what is happening on the client.

    I do all my NFS mounts in /etc/fstab.
  15. [xubuntu] Re: Shared files all seen as folders on client machine

    If both machines are running Linux, use NFS, not Samba.

    [ubuntu] Re: command to find router ip address ?

    Try installing nmap and doing a ping scan of the networks:

    sudo apt install nmap
    nmap -sP 192.168.1.0/24

    will try every IP from 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.1.254.

    Did you install the Expansion Pack? If so, you'll get better video drivers than the default.
