    Re: Ubuntu Server 21.04 Stuck Loading Installer

    Think I started a reply twice before, but ended up deleting it each time. If you aren't a "server" person already, then there is little reason to use 21.04 "server" over 20.04. 6 months of patch...
  3. Re: Two remote desktop problems after upgrading to Ubuntu 21.04

    Don't use Wayland.
    Use x2go, not VNC.
    Anything complex that is not "core" can stop working after any upgrade. That should be expected. Reading the release notes for the release BEFORE...

    Re: fuse filesystem with search results?

    Can you not modify the application? I know that nearly home media servers understand the idea of multiple disks for a single library. I used this with Plex, Kodi, Rygel, and miniDLNA.

    If you need...

    Re: fuse filesystem with search results?

    No.

    I sincerely hope you don't want to make a new file system just for search results. That would definitely be overkill.
    If the files are on the same file system, then using hardlinks can work....
  7. [lubuntu] Re: Diff, kdiff3, and meld all hang when comparing directories

    Well, if you have more than about 500 files in a directory, you are asking for file system corruption and performance issues.

    I don't know how KDE handle the screen saver timeout, but that's where I'd check.

    Check the keyboard. May need to ensure "legacy usb support" in the bios.

    You're still in the installer? I didn't have issues with that besides forgetting to remove the flash drive.

    Re: Ubuntu Server 21.04 Installer Stuck

    Did you switch to a different tty and login?

    Or .... just hit <enter> for a login prompt.

    BTW, I just installed 21.04 Server in the last 10 minutes.
  12. [ubuntu] Re: Boot-repair failed, when i boot, cryptsetup immediately sleeps

    Long descriptions, but no actual commands. We need to see the commands, in order, to be much help. You didn't mention setting up a chroot at all. That's needed to properly update-grub.

  13. [SOLVED] Re: Need some handholding support with performing fsck command.

    There aren't any options for fsck.

    I'd try to use the HW-RAID to get the devices working, though we stopped using HW-RAID in 2008. SW-RAID is much more flexible. You need a battery-backed RAID...

  16. Re: How to link all the thrash folders to one?

    The implementation of "trash" keeps the files on the same partition because doing anything else would be a copy/delete not a move.

    Move within a partition is instantaneous - 1 file system...

    That sounds like a security nightmare. DNS has a long history of being hacked. I've been hacked through DNS, in my younger days.

    [server] Re: Set up unattended install

    16.04 LTS support ended last month. No use in doing anything with that release - except wiping it and loading 20.04. Any clients should be clearly told that 16.04 support ended. Period.

    NIS+ was used all over the place - in Sun Micro shops. The server was only available on Solaris. Most Unix places didn't want vendor lock-in, so they moved to NDS or x.500 directory servers.
