  1. [ubuntu] Re: my boot time is slow or normal for my laptop specs?

    Laptop HDDs are optimized for power consumption/battery life, not speed, so slower boot times are normal.

    If you want fast boot times, install a SSD.

    [ubuntu] Re: system program problem detected

    Clear the crash reports folder with sudo rm /var/crash/* and the error should go away.

    If it comes back again something new crashed and probably should be investigated further.
  6. [SOLVED] Re: Can ClamAV Scan inside VirtualBox Folder?

    Virtualbox volumes are files* but a virus scanner on the host OS won't know how to open them as a file system. Your best bet is to run an AV inside the VM. It should be able to update provided the...

  10. [ubuntu] Re: Why does my sys log show only one day of records?

    Logrotate rotates the logs daily so /var/log/syslog contains today's entries, /var/log/syslog.1 contains yesterday's, then older ones are gzipped, so syslog.2.gz will be 2 days ago, etc.

    Depending...

    Puppylinux.com opened fine for me. Try from a private/incognito window in case it's an addon or extension blocking it. Also try from another device or browser if you have one.

    Re: Cannot get Crontab to work

    The first line in the script should read #!/bin/bash not #! bin/bash .

    Also have it log the output to a file so you can see what errors you're getting, if any. Change the crontab to read:
