    [server] Re: user IDE plus server?

    What do you mean my "server?" Which server? Apache, Postgressql, wireguard, plex, nfs, 20,000 others? If you have any version of Ubuntu installed, just install the specific "server" packages you...
  2. [SOLVED] Re: A safe method of passing login credentials to openvpn automatically?

    I use login.cf.

    Inside the .ovpn file,

    auth-user-pass /etc/openvpn/login.cf
    OpenVPN says this method can make the keys available in RAM.

    Inside /etc/openvpn/login.cf

  3. [UbuntuGnome] Re: Start up script to run an app is not working properly

    I'm not a GUI user, so I can't answer that. GUI programs often spew junk output that isn't actually errors to stderr. They expect most people will be pushing a button to start their programs, so all...

    Good luck with that. These tools are in the Canonical repos just like the kernels are.

    [ubuntu] Re: Network interfaces disapeared

    Which release? 17.10 and later use netplan, not the interfaces file unless you go out of your way to retain that. At least that's my understanding.

    Re: Gaming hardware with Linux?

    If your budget is $4000, you won't have any problem. Get a Core i9 with 64G-128G of RAM and the most expensive AMD GPU you can get.
    Are you building the system on your own? Then you can ensure the...

  9. Re: Planning to move from windows 7 to Linux, some basic questions.

    CentOS is a server.
    Use Fedora if you want an RPM desktop or perhaps Scientific Linux.
    Win7 can't slow down Linux, unless it is the hostOS for a hypervisor.

    I would strongly recommend trialing...

    Re: How to mount an external drive on 20.04 ?

    There is an option to use LVM in the installer for most flavors of Ubuntu Desktop and Server. I suppose a few installers may not have that included. Usually, when LVM is selected during the install,...

    Hey oldfred, the lsblk -e 7 blocks loop devices, but I don't know how to get them removed from fdisk -l, do you?

    If the OP just wants a normal USB data drive, life should be pretty easy.

    Re: How to mount an external drive on 20.04 ?

    This install uses LVM.
    I use LVM almost everywhere.
    I don't know what your intention is. Could you please simplify down to 3rd grade sentences for what you need?

    a) all the "loop" stuff is...

    Re: How to mount an external drive on 20.04 ?

    If you selected LVM for 20.04, something like this will happen:


    $ sudo fdisk -l
    Disk /dev/vda: 30 GiB, 32212254720 bytes, 62914560 sectors
    Units: sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes

    Did you chose LVM or ZFS during the install?
    or encryption?

  16. [ubuntu] Re: Postfix setup sending emails but cannot send emails with client

    Look up "open relay".

    I suspect that is not your goal. Open relays on the internet get into block lists very,very quickly and can be hard to get removed. OTOH, allowing email from specific...
