  1. [ubuntu] Re: Change all home Ubuntu folders path in a NTFS partition to share them with Window

    I suspect the OP doesn't like the idea of having **any** wasted space just because partitions can never really become full, so the more partitions, the greater the hassle.

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

    There are different needs for different system setups.

    /boot/efi is recommended to be 500MB by some respected people. I've never used more than 20MB, so it seems like 10x too much. The more you...

    There are hundreds of discussions here about how to backup a system, just the data, just personal files, just personal settings. Only you can decide which is the best. You probably do not want to...

    Uh .... ytdl is the issue. Switching to an alternate version or getting the alpha pre-release version seems to correct this issue. Saw this on a reddit thread.

  8. Re: How to understand or How to check whether o software is 32 or 64 bit

    I've always used nm and ar for looking inside libraries. I don't remember them showing 32/64-bitness. Those two tools don't work on programs, just libraries.

  11. Re: Permissions for Jellyfin Service account in Ubuntu

    The jellyfin installer creates a jellyfin userid and jellyfin group.

    uid=128(jellyfin) gid=139(jellyfin) groups=139(jellyfin)

    The short way to provide access for userids to...
  12. Re: How is ZFS coming in Ubuntu's development of it?

    Snapshots are great! Snapshots retained too long are a blight on a system.

    I can see a use to have 2 weeks of snapshots retained by almost everyone - it wouldn't be tied to any specific number,...
  13. Re: Permissions for Jellyfin Service account in Ubuntu

    There is nothing magical about Jellyfin permissions. I just use the same permissions that plex media has. That's basically,

    Is this a trick question?

    Normal Unix permissions and techniques apply. Any Unix permissions tutorial will help. If you only want jellyfin to be able to view the different media, just allow...

    Re: CPU for KVM host

    UEFI doesn't preclude GPT. That's an arbitrary thing for MSFT systems, not Linux. Linux doesn't care and will happily legacy boot GPT partitions.

    Re: Stuck in Busybox because sda6 can't mount

    That says the file system is clean. That's good news. Did you run it on all the other file systems? Did you run smartctl (request a test, wait, request a report) on all the storage devices?
