  1. Re: What is the best command to backup a folder

    Daily, automatic, versioned, backups w/ rdiff-backup. A straight mirror is better than what most people do, but adding versioning is really no different. A mirror lacks some important capabilities...

    [xubuntu] Re: Virus?

    Nope. There is no sure way for any computer except to have backups from BEFORE the machine was compromised. Obviously, people will happily sell you stuff and make all sorts of claims about it. ...

    Re: Will using iptables secure Ubuntu?

    Firewalls aren't the only part to running a secure system, thought they are extremely important.

  4. Re: Trying to understand how my disk is organized (partitions)

    This command makes more useful output:

    After the install, you can create an alias so less typing is needed.

    [xubuntu] Re: Virus?

    Sure. Know that backup you made BEFORE getting the virus? Use those to compare against the current system files.
    Lacking that, best to wipe and start over.

    Nuke it from orbit. That's the only...

    Re: Moving from NVMe/PCI-E to SATA

    That will be very slow and cloning a single partition to an entire disk is a mistake. i'd use ddrescue after booting from a USB flash "try ubuntu" setup.

  8. Re: New ubuntu installation from Windows goes straight to grub

    Look for incorrect BIOS settings. Anything specific to Windows is probably a problem. Also, there are some Windows settings that will make any Linux not see the storage, so you'll want to change or...

    Unplug the headphone-out. Wait 10 seconds. Plug in the headphone-out. Pulse audio likes to automatically switch to the most recent connection.

    I use x2go where this isn't an issue. x2go feels 2-3x faster than any VNC. It uses ssh to tunnel all traffic, so setup...

    Re: Recover any windows files?

    Doubtful. Is this file worth 20 hrs of recovery attempts? The chance that the file can possibly be recovered depends completely on chance - that no new data was written to the blocks where the file...

  13. Re: Corrupted ext4 partition - advice how to recover?

    I'm lazy. I'd get the tapes from Iron Mountain. After all, what's the point if you don't use them? Let the user's group pay for any extra cost involved. If you can, bill your time to their charge...

    Re: Which would be the best domain name?

    #2 is odd. #1 and #3 are fine. American speaker.

    Two plural words back-to-back is almost always (maybe always) odd and screams non-native speaker.

    Ubuntu doesn't allow remote root access. We use sudo. Keys are per account.

    i wouldn't use sed for this. I’d use perl or ruby or python where the language provides an easy way to count. Think it would be 3-5 lines in perl.
