    Re: Can't access windows files

    In Windows, have you disabled "fast boot" or "fast startup"?
    In Windows, disable hibernation.
    In Windows, might the disks be using advanced partitions? Basic partitions work easiest with Linux.

    Google "ubuntu fstab" for a general how-to guide.
  3. [ubuntu] Re: Repair corrupt filesystem using fsck on CF

    I would run smartctl tests and reports on the disk, then decide if just wiping the disk and restoring from backups was an option or if I needed a new HDD instead. The SMART data would massively...

    I've never used any GUI to setup mounts.

    Re: hardened image of ubuntu?

    Many of the claimed "best practices" aren't for Ubuntu or Debian. Slight differences in how permissions are setup makes a huge difference, as does the normal method of software deployment to the...

    Re: Clone partition to new SSD - Best Way

    As long as wasabi captures file and directory permissions and ACLs in addition to the data, it should be fine. On Unix systems, the permissions are 50% of what needs to be backed up. Without that,...
  8. Re: Install Ubuntu on three Machines acting like a single Machine

    Someone else asked a similar question here the last few days. Gnu-parallel was an option that would work for cluster-unaware software. lots of...
  9. Re: Does installing packages via the terminal install globally?

    That isn't what I meant to say, but it is true and all user accounts have at least read-only access to those files.

  11. Re: How to raise size of working partition under Kubuntu 18

    I cannot tell without knowing the PWD. The target of that command above defaults to the PWD.

  13. Re: GLIB in C programming: No such file or directory

    +1 on using a makefile. That's what gmake/cmake were made to handle. I've never used cmake, but with gmake, beware that tabs and spaces in the file mean different things. Don't let the editor...
  14. Re: Can't create more than 1 new partition on SSD with Win10, free space marked"unusa

    Linux machines should stay up and running for years without failing, unless it is tuned poorly or there is a hardware problem. MS-Windows silently ignores many hardware problems, so when Linux is...

    Re: Anti Cloud

    Guess I don't know any "normal" people.

    I don't know anyone without a computer. Most of my friends have multiple computers and run Linux. About 30% also run internet-facing webapps. Odd to me...

  18. Re: Does installing packages via the terminal install globally?

    All APT package management installs for everyone by default. It doesn't matter if it is CLI or GUI interface.
    To limit which users can run any program, use normal Unix file/directory permissions.

  20. [lubuntu] Re: is there a way to preserve the window size of PCManFM?

    All proper X/Windows client programs should support the -geometry command line switch. Something like this:

    There is no standard. I've found that only the smartctl tool provides raw values for SMART data. None of the GUIs seem to.
