    Re: Mdadm raid 1 assembly lost after reboot

    The fstab file clearly shows that LVM is being used with a "root" LV and "swap_1" LV. Run sudo lvs if you don't believe me. Can also run sudo vgs and sudo pvs to get the full summary of LVM PVs,...

    Re: ubuntu aes_x86_64 not loaded

    If you use dm-crypt with LUKS, I bet it will all "just work." LUKS is the native Linux encryption. Everything else is non-native.

    To create/setup a new LUKS container, use cryptsetup - that's the...

    Re: About MXLinux

    Yes, that can be done, but it is non-trivial and requires a second GPU assigned exclusively to the VM that is high-end (passthru doesn't work with the cheaper GPUs), some BIOS settings, some MB...

    Re: About MXLinux

    Sorry, I avoid KDE software.

    I've had problems running real videoeditors in VMs. They **really** need direct access to the GPU. Some refuse to work without that access, IME.
    As for sharpening...

    Re: Mdadm raid 1 assembly lost after reboot

    If

    sudo mdadm --detail --scan
    shows nothing, the there isn't any array connected. Cannot mount something that isn't connected.

    Is there a reason you use mdadm and LVM? LVM can do a few...

    My LUG has a few users and over the last few months we've installed it and played around. It is lite and doesn't use systemd. One of the guys only runs linux from a USB3 flash drive with persistent...

    Re: About migration and backup

    I hope you've found a solution. It isn't what we suggested as answers to the question. We suggested using LVM methods (pvmove or mirroring) or testing your backup/restore processes (fsarchiver is an...
  9. [ubuntu] Re: Make xdotool accessible to every local user in ubuntu

    Perhaps understanding how X11 works would be helpful? Programs run _under_ X11, so if they are started outside that session, there shouldn't be any access allowed. X11 doesn't have much security, but...

    Re: About migration and backup

    I think doing anything with LVM that doesn't include CAREFULLY reviewing the manpages and looking through REPUTABLE web tutorials would be a mistake. Don't just "wing it" and hope for the best.

    Some facts please?

    Contents of /etc/fstab? - at least related to the mount of RAID devices.

    Re: About migration and backup

    Are you using LVM? If so, you can leave the system running and use pvmove.
    Or
    you can create new mirror LVs, let the data sync and break the mirror.
    I'm assuming that you want to leave the system...
  13. Re: 20.04 Postfix - Dovecot user created can't send email. Why?

    dovecot is for receiving only. I'm pretty certain it is an IMAP server, so the mbox files should be available from any client, assuming name resolution and open ports/firewalls from the client system...

  15. [server] Re: installer does not recognize luks encrypted boot partition

    We can. I use vimwiki to save off links and any content with my notes added. For stuff I want to keep a local copy, there's wallabag. Or did you want a way for the forum software to make this easy?
  16. [SOLVED] Re: How do I rip a DVD that contains audio, not video?

    Pulling just the audio is easy with ffmpeg. Just set the video output to none/null. I don't really exactly, since ffmpeg changed those options a few times over the decades.
    I prefer vorbis audio...
  17. Re: How to Setup Local DNS Using /etc/hosts - NOT WORKING

    Jenkins is part of a CI/CD setup.

    Perhaps it is the browser causing the problem. Many ignore the /etc/hosts and some even ignore the system-wide DNS settings.

    For example, a few years ago,...

  20. [SOLVED] Re: How do I rip a DVD that contains audio, not video?

    Ah ... vobcopy is what I used. Then you can pull the audio out as needed later.

    Always make a script. You can make it a toggle.

    Are there files on the DVD or did someone burn an audio CD to DVD media?
