    Re: Tyring to install a 4TB hdd, problems.

    fdisk can certainly be used and mkfs too.
    However, gparted is much easier, provided you know the steps, which are the same as described above, just with a point-n-click GUI.

    However, running a...

    [ubuntu] Re: CRON export DISPLAY error

    crontabs can be located in about 6 different places. If it is really hourly, exactly, then I'd start by looking in the cron.hourly directory inside /etc/. grep all those files for nutty.

    Re: Tyring to install a 4TB hdd, problems.

    Please SHOW the config, don't try to interpret it. Show the command, all options and relevant output if it is long or all the output if it isn't too long.

    Re: Samba, can't acess new hdd.

    It helps to actually SHOW the configs that are causing issues. More SHOW, less TALK.

    What do we need?
    The fstab.
    The permissions on the mount point - ls -al
    Something that shows there is a...

    cd VirtualBox\ VMs
    or just use tab-completion and don't worry about it.

    cd ~/Vi{tab}
    which will find the files/directories in the userid's HOME that begin with "Vi" and fill in the...

    Re: Are you supposed to removed cloud-init

    I've removed cloud-init from my KVM servers, but Canonical's dependencies (or more likely "install-recommended" options for APT keep reinstalling it.

    First, have you checked the system logs?

    Is the USB port USB3.2 or something else? Theoretical USB bus speeds are just that - theoretical. The slowest part in the chain will limit all...

    [ubuntu] Re: Newbie - help to remove links in Files

    They might be external mounted storage too. Hard to tell from a GUI. Really need to see a proper ls -al on those specific directories and a df -Th to see what is mounted, where.

  11. Re: Fail to connect to Windows shares: "failed to retrieve share list from server"

    It isn't samba. It is your name resolution or a failed routing table. If the machines are on the same subnet, try connecting using the IP address. Does that work? If so, then it is that the client...

    Re: FTP to web documents directory

    There are so many better tools for deploying files than plain FTP. rsync is how I do it. That works over ssh by default. ssh is how Unix systems are connected, managed, maintained world-wide. ...

    Re: SSD Raid aray - worth it?

    I wouldn't risk it. I lost 80% of my data doing that on spinning disks. The hassle-factor isn't worth it to me for any level of performance. Regardless, I'd use LVM in RAID0 config, not mdadm.

    I worked in Document Management Systems at some huge companies from 1995 - 2007, some were art-centric systems, but most were either conversions from older systems or for archival data.
