    [xubuntu] Re: Move Xubuntu 18.04 to new computer

    Seems like a good plan. And you'll KNOW which works when all done.

    I've unplugged HDDs and physically moved them into other systems a few times.
    I've also used ddrescue to completely clone disk...

    Re: dropped packets with NFS traffic

    No clue on the root issue, but we can force NFS to use TCP, not the default UDP (for NFSv2/3).
    Read somewhere that was recommended for GigE networking or faster.
  3. Re: Server + Ruby on Rails - Chromebook vs Raspberry Pi 4 ???

    Rails, Ruby and gems are RAM hogs. You'll need at least 2GB of RAM. Sometimes, gem updates require lots of RAM.
    I've never attempted ruby+rails on any ARM system. My RoR webapp uses just under...

    [xubuntu] Re: Move Xubuntu 18.04 to new computer

    The idea that a reinstall means starting all over from the beginning isn't true. It is just like moving houses. We get a new roof, new plumbing, new electrical lines, new fixtures that work just a...

    [ubuntu] Re: email notifications for logins on my pc

    logwatch will email daily reports about a system. Logins, users, installed packages, removed packages, etc.

  6. [server] Re: basic root server - services optimization

    "basic webserver optimization" is a subjective ideal.

    [ubuntu_mate] Re: Slow reponse

    "need" is a strong word, but think a little about it. DEs that use Gnome are likely to have settings that use the same config files, same config DB, and since different programmers are on each DE...

    If you want storage that is redundant, there are solutions. NFS really isn't it. If you use KVM + libvirt, something like sheepdog for the backend storage will handle replication with N nodes...

    [ubuntu] Re: nfs not showing on clients

    Did you mount storage from the server? Clients don't have listeners, usually.
    Is the server /etc/exports file setup? Does it export storage to the clients?

    A simple /etc/exports file:

    Re: best backup strategy for media files?

    For media that doesn't get edited, I use rsync. I don't know of any shortcut to having 2 copies of the data. RAID is never a backup.

    If there aren't 2 copies, it isn't a backup.

    More information is always helpful. We have to guess otherwise.

    Are you using different userids for each different DE being tested? Some DE settings can conflict between DEs.

    Linux uses passwords to login. This is standard. It has nothing to do with encryption most of the time.
    A linux system that doesn't use a password for login is the oddity, an exception. I've...
