  1. [all variants] Re: Autocomplete ssh logins on a FreeIPA system?

    I did that for years, before discovering the ~/.ssh/config file which is used by all ssh-capable tools. When old-tiers learn about this file, it changes their setups completely. It is more useful...
  2. Re: Best Small Netbook to replace my ASUS EeePC901Go

    After my Asus Eee, I moved to a chromebook 11 inch, 2995u CPU, but only 2G of ram for $212. Replaced the 16G ssd for a 120G ssd and put a lite-ubuntu flavor on it. The 720p screen drove me nuts.

    Re: Looking for a technical term

    Manly, never allow passwords to be used over the internet. Keys only.

    Re: Opinions about Partitioning Options

    Formatting ext4 on a partition vs formatting ext4 on an LV - night and day. The LV is MUCH faster well over 5x faster.

    Re: Partitioning

    If you boot into either Ubuntu and run this command, you'll be able to tell which OS is using which partition:

    Re: Opinions about Partitioning Options

    I use LVM for all the added flexibility that GPT doesn't address at all. On a system with LVM install, check out the commands available. To see those,

    vg{tab}{tab}
    lv{tab}{tab}

    [server] Re: Time to build a server with old hardware.

    Ubuntu Server doesn't have a GUI. That makes it more stable. GPU drivers have always sucked a bit on Linux - more so recently.
