    Re: Banshee alternative for video

    VLC is also useful it plays and record streams from the Internet.
    Plays and record channels of air from a DVB dongle or card too.
    Looks and works the same in its Windows and Linux version.

    [SOLVED] Re: Problem with SDcard in the last 2 Kernels

    In fact I found a better solution:
    Instead of the rather obscure UUID this is what I now use in my /etc/fstab file:

    [SOLVED] Re: Accidently deleted EFI directory

    A tip to avoid accidental deleting of partitions is to give them a useful name or label.
    I recently discovered that /etc/fstab allows to use Label to mount partitions.
    This too can be very useful....

    Re: My dad refuses to upgrade his 16.04 laptop

    So you mean that an old computer with an old OS is a critical risk for all the brand new ones fully up to date with all their bells and whistles.
    Do you sell computers or OS's for a living ?

    [ubuntu_studio] Welle.io and Ubuntu studio

  7. [ubuntu] Re: Is Samba read/write rate performance on Ubuntu 20.04 capped at around 11MB/s?

    [ubuntu] Re: How large a /boot recommended for 21.10?

    The most I have seen is three kernels plus two low latency kernels if you use ubuntu studio.
    If you want to compile your own kernels you must have room to test them.

  13. [SOLVED] Re: Cannot format NTFS HDD that came from WIN10

    [SOLVED] Re: Problem with SDcard in the last 2 Kernels

    Re: ubuntu update not working properly

    There is another anomaly:
    With a "good" update you must loose at least 2gigabytes on your root partition.
    Don't forget the time needed to make new backup

    Re: My dad refuses to upgrade his 16.04 laptop

    IMHO the main reason to upgrade in Linux is to support new hardware not security.
    But it is very easy to have several distributions with Grub allowing you to choose at boot.

    Re: Ntfs

    A trick to mainly use NTFS partitions is to make backups of the Linux file system as archives.
    Thus you preserve ownership and attributes.
    Making and restoring archives needs to keep free-space on...

    Re: UEFI and locked BIOS

    With W10 if you press the shift key while clicking restart you get a useful menu that allows
    you to restart in the BIOS.
    Ubuntu allows it from the grub menu.
