  1. Re: Ubuntu stop working - the mouse cursor does not move

    If you use a swap file, be certain that it isn't included in backups.
    SYSRQ isn't the same as
    <cntl><alt>-1

    Try that.
  2. Re: Server + Ruby on Rails - Chromebook vs Raspberry Pi 4 ???

    Doesn't the r-pi v4 come in 3 different RAM levels?
    https://www.raspberrypi.org/products/raspberry-pi-4-model-b/specifications/ says there are 1G, 2G, and 4G versions. Be certain to get the 4G...
  3. Re: Automount NAS on boot does not work, manually it does (19.10)

    Thanks. I'll need to test it here. ghost option in amd/autofs shows the directory even when the mount hasn't happened.

    Some GUI programs need that to access the storage, assuming a snap isn't...
  4. Re: Ubuntu stop working - the mouse cursor does not move

    sr1 is showing lots and lots of errors. That is usually a DVD or CD device.

    [ubuntu] Re: Restricted access account

    Those are good things to test on a play system, in a temp directory. Nothing teaches more or better than screwing things up.

    If you had, you'd know the answers.

  6. Re: Ubuntu stop working - the mouse cursor does not move

    How are the optical and USB storage devices used? Lots and lots of errors in those. Seems like some corruption exists.

    Each program can have different key-chords for those things.
    If you are talking about an editor, each will be different.

  9. Re: Automount NAS on boot does not work, manually it does (19.10)

    systemd-fstab-generator - thanks for that pointer.
    That manpage lists a number of things handled differently than the old method for the same parameters.

    autofs doesn't seem to be impacted....
  10. Re: Automount NAS on boot does not work, manually it does (19.10)

    Would adding the _netdev option to the mount options not solve this too? That tells mount programs to delay attempt until after the network is up. From the mount manpage:

    _netdev

  11. Re: Ubuntu stop working - the mouse cursor does not move

    6G of RAM with 0.7 given to the GPU.
    2G swap, none used.

    On a desktop, I like to see 4.1G of swap, since modern browsers are bloated. Right now, it doesn't seem to be any issue. Do you get any...
  12. Re: Ubuntu stop working - the mouse cursor does not move

    Firefox is a RAM hog, so my first idea is that the system is running out of RAM.
    free -hm
    will show the amount of RAM and swap the system has and what is being used. Using top will stop the CPU...

    Re: File sharing

    OSX uses HFS+. Need to install the helper packages to access that sort of foreign file system.
    Then just need to mount it somewhere.

    Re: 19.04: How to Hibernate?

    Support for 19.04 ends in about 1 month.
    Time to move to 19.10 and plan your move to 20.04 when it is released. I always wait a few months before moving to the next LTS, so think "June".
  15. [ubuntu] Re: mdadm error message when sudo apt-get upgrade, remote system won't boot

    I'm guessing the OS on the flash drive got corrupted.
    If you didn't setup RAID, then mdadm isn't needed.

    Probably nothing, but that kernel is really old. My r-pi has v4.14.78.

    For remote...

  17. [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu 19.10 died after extending lvm root volume

    It won't help, but this is an example why I keep the OS in a separate LV from anything else. 10TB for / seems excessive.
    / should probably be 25GB
    /home 50GB, perhaps
    Then put huge data somewhere...

    Re: dropped packets with NFS traffic

    The GigE spec requires autonegotiation.

    Don't use plain FTP. Use sftp. Plain FTP should have died out by 2002. There are so many reasons for this.

    [ubuntu] Re: Power Supply or Motherboard

    Most computer shops will have a PSU tester. Just because fan leads are working, that doesn't mean the 24V main lead is solid.

    A bad PSU can fry motherboards, GPUs, etc.
