    Re: All Linux DEs suck

    Give XFCE4 a try. It is very simple, clean, and so far no annoying bugs I know of. I usually set up my monitors with Xrandr, but XFCE4 has a montitor widget that works fairly well. I've been using...

    Might have a look over here.

    I'm just now seeing this on a new RAID. If I figure anything out, I'll post back here.

    Re: How many of you completely switched to Linux?

    To get away from google, and the NSA, go buy your own domain name (don't use godaddy!), then have someone webhost it. Namecheap has been rock solid for years. That should address your...

    Re: Acer C7: Anyone else have one?

    Make sure gcc is up to date. Do apt-cache search gcc |grep gcc to get the correct name for apt. In fact, perhaps just do:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get upgrade
    should bring your system up to...

    Re: How many of you completely switched to Linux?

    Play with xrandr. You can add new modes, check what modes are supported, set new modes:
    xrandr (shows monitors connected, resolutions supported, and which one currently using *next to it)
    xrandr...

    Re: HOWTO: Linux Software Raid using mdadm

    XFS is in the Linux kernel - I just checked CONFIG_XFS_FS is in the kernel config file, so if you have a Linux system you should be able to read those raid systems.

    Re: HOWTO: Linux Software Raid using mdadm

    This is from my personal notes (your disks and devices will be different):
    mdadm --examine --scan /dev/sda1 /dev/sda2 >> /etc/mdadm.conf
    The lines in the mdadm.conf file should look like this:...

    Re: How many of you completely switched to Linux?

    For me, Linux is about choice. I don't have to upgrade to windows X when microsoft decides it needs another trillion dollars, I don't have to upgrade to office xxx when they decide I have to. For...

    If you are still looking, I've got a good Jtag programming hardware/software native to Linux. I'm a hardware designer, been doing it on Linux for years now.

    You can completely customize Libre office - menus, shortcuts, etc. If you take the time to customize Libre, there will be very little difference between MS and Libre.

    Re: HOWTO: Linux Software Raid using mdadm

    It looks like your drive is partitioned as follows:
    /dev/sdb1 MS Data (whatever that is - I assume it is a Microsoft something)
    /dev/sdb2 is md0, a Linux software raid
    /dev/sdb3 is Linux swap...

    Re: Acer C7: Anyone else have one?

    So I've found some interesting things out. First, NFS is not built into the kernel, and many of the drivers are not built, even as modules, so I built my own kernel. Here's how I did it. I've...

    Re: How many of you completely switched to Linux?

    Vector Linux runs great on low-resource hardware. I just don't know if they do power pc. I've run it on a pentium-200mHz with 200M of ram, and it performs great.

  20. [SOLVED] Re: Grub timeout not working after upgrade from 10.04 to 10.10

    This happens in Precise, as well.

    None of that header modification is necessary. Do not change the exe bits or remove 00-header. Just add:
    GRUB_RECORDFAIL_TIMEOUT=10
    to /etc/default/grub
    then...

    Re: HOWTO: Linux Software Raid using mdadm

    It just sounds like your raid didn't rebuild so it can mount. Is there more of the message? You should see something like can't mount xxx.

    If you dump /dev/disk/by-id or /dev/disk/by-uuid like so...

    Re: How many of you completely switched to Linux?

    Vector Linux runs on 486, and should work on 386. You need 16M of ram or so, though. It has translucent windows, it's pretty amazing. I know, because I've run it. You are right, the 286 won't run -...
