  1. [all variants] Re: can I use a MacOS printer driver in Ubuntu?

    Not the same as a VM. 100x lighter.
    "How" is a huge question. https://ubuntu.com/server/docs/containers-lxd
  2. [all variants] Re: can I use a MacOS printer driver in Ubuntu?

    You could spin up an 18.04 container, pass through the USB port from the printer, and install the 18.04 drivers, the use that IP as a print server for all your systems to access the printer....
  3. Re: Crontab fails to start autostart.cron script

    Are there any environment variables that the scripts need which aren't set in a cron environment?

    Which crontab file? There are at least 4 places for those, with different formats.

    [ubuntu] Re: Reinstalling 20.04

    Why bother running dual boot? Just keep running inside a virtual machine. VMs can be tuned to provide over 90% of native performance for almost all workloads that aren't GUI-centric. I don't have...

    Don't think I've ever seen anyone attack openvpn ports. I have seen some scans and some bad connection attempts, but after a few attempts, they gave up and never returned. Just a few attempts in a...
  6. Re: Best Small Netbook to replace my ASUS EeePC901Go

    A used Acer C720 with 2955U should be about $75 now. That would be a huge step up from an N570.

    Look inside the tar - looks for owners, groups, permissions, ACLs, xattrs and whether the paths for every file and directory are relative or absolute. Then decide which PWD is needed during restore....

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

    If you have root, then you own the box and can do anything. Undo whatever you did to break it.

    Re: Opinions about Partitioning Options

    I don't think it can be used for booting today, but it will definitely work for data. I've not tried it for /home/ or /usr/.

  12. [SOLVED] 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-timers learn about this file, it changes their setups completely. It is more useful...
  13. 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.

    Did it just run out of inodes on the file system?
    Or do you think they actually setup a quota?

    https://blog.jdpfu.com/2011/08/23/securing-ssh-connections-and-blocking-failures has the easy stuff. There is more possible.
    Mainly, never allow passwords to be used over the internet. Keys only.

    I use the ~/.ssh/confg file.

    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.
    Nice link, but ext4 has changed drastically since 2011.

    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}
