  1. Re: Local messagebox-system instead of email?

    So set up a Retroshare system.
  2. [SOLVED] Re: Accidently lost /home during resizing process

    The install disk is necessarily a fresh boot. Before doing anything to the file system of /home again, first make a backup of your data. After that you can play with the disk utilities and if you...

    [all variants] Re: Firefox and trackers

    The Truly Paranoid use OpenBSD. So before getting bothered with browser security, you should fix the OS first.
  4. [SOLVED] Re: Accidently lost /home during resizing process

    The most important question is: Do you have a backup of your data?
    If yes, then you can simply reinstall, which takes about 20 minutes.
    If no, then I would boot from install media, mount /home and...
  5. Re: Local messagebox-system instead of email?

    There are several ways to do that.
    a. You can open a Google/Yahoo/Whatever Mail account and give the login details to all the parties. Then use the Drafts Folder as a drop box and don't actually...

    The answer may be in here:

    I think you need to read the script to see how it works.
  7. Re: ubuntu 20.04 server crashing my home network

    Regardless of the type of ISP account, the network should not 'crash'. Look at the packets with tcpdump or wireshark. Poking around like a black bear in a coal mine in the dark, is a waste of time.
  8. Re: ubuntu 20.04 server crashing my home network

    Don't poke around in the dark. Run tcpdump and see what is going on. There are many misconfiguration possibilities that can lead to packet storms.

    [ubuntu] Re: Connect 3 Monitors

    You could also try a USB video adaptor.
  10. [ubuntu] Re: How to speedup transfer rate when copying big files?

    You can speed it up by buying better quality flash memory devices. SD cards come with speed ratings of 4, 6, 10 etc. With USB sticks, you are kinda lost in a sea of sargassum though.
  11. Re: change login without password to login with password.

    Eish... that sounds to me like a relatively easily exploitable feature.
  12. Re: Is clone operation blocked ? 10 hours on "Saving OS info from the device"

    It would indeed be much faster to prepare a file system with the diskutility and then copying the data over with rsync.
  13. [ubuntu] Re: smb file explorer vs. terminal contents

    Dolphin runs as the logged in user, while you mentioned you created the new directory as root.

    Re: rsync not copying everything

    There are multiple underlying file system issues that can prevent copying. Rsync can only copy that which it has been granted access to. Even when running as root, SELinux or AppArmor can still...

    [SOLVED] Re: need monitor config info

    Rather set the external monitor to clone the laptop screen, then plug in a keyboard also and set the laptop power settings so that it will NOT sleep when the lid is closed.

    Missing:

  17. Re: Large transfers over the Internet stalling.

    Different simptoms of the same problem - lost packets, causing rsync to get confused.
  18. Re: Large transfers over the Internet stalling.

    It looks like packets are getting dropped somewhere along the line.

    You need to devise a script that will watch rsync and if necessary, kill it and restart it.

    [ubuntu] Re: Everything Slows Down When Typing

    Maybe the NSA key logger infrastructure is a bit overloaded?

  20. Re: Large transfers over the Internet stalling.

    The programs ifconfig or ip can show you whether there are packet errors (bad HW).
  21. Re: Large transfers over the Internet stalling.

    Rsync has a bandwidth parameter. Slowing it down a bit can prevent complete stalls in my experience.

    Also check your equipment ethernet ports for packet errors indicative of hardware failures or...

    Re: Securing Computer Lab

    The least hassle would be to enable the Guest Account.

    The guest account works like a kiosk and gets overwritten on each login.

    I use a simple trick to confirm that a disk is mounted:

    When the disk is mounted, the above file...
