    I think that to delete the source after a successful...
  2. [SOLVED] Re: Value of reserved blocks is sometimes changed

    @raleigh3
    With my apologies, please can you also post the output of

    df -h | grep -v snap
    However, we can see that you do indeed have a single 2TB partition for Linux, and a 300G external drive....
  3. [SOLVED] Re: Value of reserved blocks is sometimes changed

    Can you please post the output of

    du -sh | grep -v snap
    lsblk -fmap | grep -v snap
    so we can see what partitions and sizes you actually have.
  4. [SOLVED] Re: Value of reserved blocks is sometimes changed

    That means there is no more space on the root filestysem (the partition that holds /). Your system is close to crashing when the disk is full. The reserved blocks are reserved for system use, not...

  8. Re: LUBUNTU How to compress totally an BTRFS partition ?

    The option to compress is an option that is set when the disk is mounted. For the / partition, that is of course at boot time. The file that defines the boot options is /etc/fstab. You can add...
  9. [SOLVED] Re: 18.04.4 Server: OpenVPN client connects but no Internet connectivity

    Thanks for the post of yours, darkod.
    Now I understands that last line of addresses - it's the nameserver addresses. So here's my suggested fixes:

  10. [SOLVED] Re: 18.04.4 Server: OpenVPN client connects but no Internet connectivity

    renderer: networkd

    Re: Wireguard at home question

    Yes you can, although I would wonder why, if its all used within the home.

    [ubuntu] Re: how to manage firewall

    The ss command will also list processes that are listening on the loopback addresses 127.0.0.1 and ::1 - you can ignore those lines because they are not reachable from outside the box.

    [ubuntu] Re: how to manage firewall

    Read about it - check the documantation, google for it perhaps. That's the only way to know before you install it what an app will do.

  15. Re: Best 1:1 Disc copy method from pc1 to pc2?

    Using image files would be the first thing that came to my mind, but if you don't have the spare capacity, you can always just stream the contents across the network.

  18. Re: Are "SSH" "PDU's" created at the TCP/IP Model's Application Layer

    Yes, the chunks get different names at different layers.

    ssh will use read() and write() calls to the TCP stack. I don't think there is a name for the different "chunks" at this stage.
