    Re: How do you name your computers?

    What about the host names for my 14 Virtual Machines of my desktop and the 10 on my laptop?
    I now use the OS name, so VM-Ubuntu or VM-Ubuntu-LTS or if it is older or in development VM-Ubuntu-1604...

    Re: 12 hour times or 24 hour times?

    The whole world prefers 24 hour time. All time tables are in 24 hours. Only lazy cultures still use 12 hours, inches and pounds instead of the science based SI system :)
    I think the USA is one of...

    [ubuntu] Re: Compatible RAID Card for 18.04?

    I would go for ZFS, mdadm does not give you the same level of protection as a HW Raid and ZFS gives you better protection than a HW Raid. See the next complemented excerpt out of Wikipedia:

    Re: Which distro is suit for me?

    There is no best desktop, they all have different shades of grey. There is nothing wrong with a choice for Mint. You could also look at Peppermint, its look and feel is the same as Linux Mint, but it...

    [ubuntu] Re: Compatible RAID Card for 18.04?

    Can you pass the disks directly to Ubuntu, bypassing or switching off the RAID functionality on the card or is there a disk controller on the motherboard?
    If so you could use a software raid; mdadm...
  10. Re: Ubuntu 18.04.03 LTS Showing half ram (4GB) instaed of 8

    One of your memory modules is not detected by the BIOS, but it is better to check it in the BIOS screen itself.
    It looks like a hardware problem, probably some contact or timing issues, if it works...
  11. Re: Building a PC in 2019: your suggestions

    Re: Multiple Desktop Environments

    What is the problem of using VMs? Yes the performance will be different, but for comparison it will be good enough. I use my VMs daily on top of ZFS and in some cases my performance is better than on...
  16. [SOLVED] Re: 19.04 has changed my login and I have access to nothing

    The wording of oldfred is somewhat incomplete with respect to 'file corruption'. If your file-system is corrupted, fsck will find it and try to repair it. If a file itself is corrupted due to e.g. a...

    ZFS is the best modern file system. I use it with Ubuntu 19.04 on a Ryzen 3 2200G with 16 GB DDR4. Three months ago I used it on a 2008 HP dc5850 with an 4-core AMD Phenom II and 8 GB DDR2.
