    Re: Issues after apt clean

    It would probably help if you mentioned which version of Ubuntu you are using and what errors you are getting.

    It should be noted that apt clean would only remove any cached archives from...

    Re: loving it

    Please ensure you make backups of any data you wish you keep. User Error, hardware failure, power failure, etc can all cause data loss.

    I can't count the number of times I've started changing a...
  3. [ubuntu] Re: chmod to give a remote server read priveleges to a client home directory

    All valid points.

    Not to mention, that in the case of running SSH on two servers that are local to you, ensuring the port SSH is running on isn't open to the internet is also a good idea.

    It...
  4. [SOLVED] Re: Full disk encryption--an explanation of exactly how does it work from the user's

    That makes sense. I've lost count of the number of times I've made a typo when trying to punch in my encryption key and having to retype it in. It's a minor inconvenience through, since there isn't a...
  5. [ubuntu] Re: Is it possible to backup Mac APFS personal data to Ubuntu server ext4 HDD ?

    That's good news.




    Possibly. It's very odd through. Do you have anything in the samba logs in /var/logs?

    I haven't had much experience with macs, so I can't tell you if that behavior is...
  6. [ubuntu] Re: Is it possible to backup Mac APFS personal data to Ubuntu server ext4 HDD ?

    It'll be a little different if you are not using the default port.

    You'll need to add -e "ssh -p 2222" like the example below, so rsync knows what port to connect on.


    rsync -avz -e "ssh -p...
  7. [ubuntu] Re: Is it possible to backup Mac APFS personal data to Ubuntu server ext4 HDD ?

    You can use SSH to do file transfers even on local connections. It's just the protocol in use.

    I use it when I am backing up to my second server.

    Instead of trying to use the mounted smb share,...
  8. [ubuntu] Re: Is it possible to backup Mac APFS personal data to Ubuntu server ext4 HDD ?

    Same here. That's probably the next step if this doesn't work.

    I'm trying to figure out if it's the way they are transferring the files via local mount instead of SSH that is the problem or if...
  9. [ubuntu] Re: Is it possible to backup Mac APFS personal data to Ubuntu server ext4 HDD ?

    That's good news! At least that means the command is working correctly.

    So, you have the server's folder mounted to /Users/myusername/Volumes/Storage/Backup/Mac/rsync right?

    How is that...
  10. [ubuntu] Re: Is it possible to backup Mac APFS personal data to Ubuntu server ext4 HDD ?

    That's what I expected - no errors about memory.

    Can you run a test by running rsync locally and see if it still fails? Assuming you have enough free disk space on the mac.
  11. [ubuntu] Re: Is it possible to backup Mac APFS personal data to Ubuntu server ext4 HDD ?

    I don't think it's a firewall issue, because we got the SIGTERM error.

    What you can do is try running this command and see if it returns anything.


    sudo grep -i -r 'out of memory' /var/log/

  12. [ubuntu] Re: Is it possible to backup Mac APFS personal data to Ubuntu server ext4 HDD ?

    OK, that gives us some more info.

    Can you check on your server and run dmesg or check the system log?


    sudo dmesg | tail -n 50


    sudo tail -n 50 /var/log/syslog
  13. [ubuntu] Re: Is it possible to backup Mac APFS personal data to Ubuntu server ext4 HDD ?

    Where are you backing your data up to? The OP said you were backing your files up to your server via the network. However, the command you were using didn't specify a destination, and I'm not too...
  14. [ubuntu] Re: Is it possible to backup Mac APFS personal data to Ubuntu server ext4 HDD ?

    That's super strange.

    Can you try running it with these arguments?

  15. [legacy Windows] Re: How does one build a Windows NT 6.0 Repair/Recovery flash chip in LinUX?

    Are you sure the system board and CPU support IOMMU? The CPU was released in 2007 and I can't find any info that says it supports it.

    If you are dead set on updating the bios to a version released...
  16. [SOLVED] Re: Full disk encryption--an explanation of exactly how does it work from the user's

    I've used this guide to set up one of my boxes with full disk encryption of the OS drive. My /boot is running of a 32GB USB stick. You can make it so /boot is on it's own partition, but it...
  17. [legacy Windows] Re: How does one build a Windows NT 6.0 Repair/Recovery flash chip in LinUX?

    This is a pretty stupid question, but why do you need to update the bios on this machine? Where did you download this bios update from?
  18. Re: Samba permissions vs. Linux Permissions

    Yes, it will work that way. file-level permissions will override shared level permissions.

    However, you should still assign share level permissions for the rare event the file level permissions...

    Re: PciE Network Card

    That's got an Intel chipset. Just make sure you have a PCIe x4 slot available on your motherboard. It will fit in a x16 slot, but those are usually for video cards.
  20. [SOLVED] Re: Full disk encryption--an explanation of exactly how does it work from the user's

    What are you going on about? You can do an encrypted root from the setup GUI if you really want to.

    If you want to do it automatically, you just need to select the "Advanced features" button under...

    Re: PciE Network Card

    Just vouching for this.

    I've a dual port 1 Gb-E card that is running the Intel Pro/1000 chipset. It's branded IBM, but it's made by them with the Intel chipset.

    You can find one like it here:...

    Did you download or execute the attached file? Seems kind of odd that those files would exist.

    Did it come in a zip file or as a shell files or something else?

    I can't answer your other questions as all my drives are connected via SAS -> SATA cables. I don't have any experience with the eSATA-PM cables or interface that TheFu is referring to.
