  1. [ubuntu] Re: How to use my own manually installed Python instead of the default one from repo?

    what OS version are you on?
    which python is being used?
    which pyenv is being used?

    Has pyenv been setup correctly and initialized?

    I did something like this last month and don't remember any...
  2. [ubuntu] Re: Partitions - take from Windows and give to Linux

    IDK. Lenovo probably installed some stuff on the storage and moving those may break them.

  5. Re: Is file synchronization another source of error?

    VERSIONED backups.

    If we only do clone or mirror backups, then we are screwed. OTOH, if you have 180 days of daily, versioned, backups, then any corruption should show up as differences in each...
  6. [ubuntu] Re: How to use my own manually installed Python instead of the default one from repo?

    You created the bug by not leaving the system python alone. Put it back they way it was.

    The best practice is to leave the system python for all system needs and use a tool like pyenv to manage...
  7. Re: Is file synchronization another source of error?

    yes.

    Anything that continuously syncs files between systems can be corrupted when a change causing corruption happens on any of the systems.

  8. [SOLVED] Re: How to install the Mpeg-4 and H.264 decoders? [Pop OS]

    On Linux, codecs aren't installed like on Windows.

    Decoder? mpv or vlc? Maybe look for media players.

    Those are players with the codecs for anything you should want to see built in.
    mpv has...

  10. [ubuntu] Re: Various thigs tried - Error opening directory '/media': Permission denied

    /root/ isn't important. It is just the HOME directory for the "root" account. It is only important if you put stuff into it. I put some configuration information there to be included in backups,...

    aljames2,

    Just curious, how is this working? Did the restore go as smooth as you'd like?

    A results report would be helpful to others.
