  1. Re: Lubuntu - root password at install time?

    I'm not sure if there is a policy on this for the forum but you just set one.


    sudo -i

    Then once under root...

  2. Re: Please help NAS + USB thumb drives + Raid 6

    I'm sorry to hear that. My dad is dealing with Multiple Myeloma right now. Stage 4 I think. Doing well at the moment but who knows how long that will last.

    Install it then add the drives to your...

    Re: PXE boot into RAM

    Go to https://ltsp.org/

    This automates damn near the whole process. I gave up trying to piece it together myself long time ago and found this. It works quite well, even full desktops. Is just a...
  4. Re: Please help NAS + USB thumb drives + Raid 6

    I apologize. I think you misunderstood that link. I didn't post it about media center specifically, rather that is where I first found out about mergerfs and snapraid.

    Mergerfs is more of a...
  5. Re: Please help NAS + USB thumb drives + Raid 6

    If I may, do not use Raid. As mentioned above other than testing something out doing it with usb is just a bad plan asking for problems. Look for a software called mergerfs. That will pool the drives...
  6. Re: How to merge multiple .mp4 files

    The main issue is the mp4. Run them through Handbrake to get mkv's. Then it's easy as linux works with open formats easily. mkvtoolnix or mkvmerge will work just fine then. If you want to go back to...

    Re: Questions on my backup strategy

    I've been tinkering with a Duplicity script that I have backing up various things on my system. Easy for any user to restore their files from via the Deja-Dup gui. I'm liking it.

    I've tested...
  9. [all variants] Re: Apt --purge autoremove fails to remove some things.

    Is only reason I posted. I'd have never known if I didn't reboot and see the Xubuntu splash.[/COLOR]
  10. [all variants] Re: Apt --purge autoremove fails to remove some things.

    Which is it?

    I ask why it doesn't remove everything it installed you say this.



    I show that it removes packages and you say this.
  11. [all variants] Re: Apt --purge autoremove fails to remove some things.

    Meta packages aren't supposed to remove packages. I get the concept. Does not equal reality, at least on this installation.

    Example.


    sudo apt --purge autoremove xubuntu-desktop
    [sudo]...
  12. [all variants] Apt --purge autoremove fails to remove some things.

    I was fiddling about with Xfce the other day and ended up removing it. Running focal vanilla otherwise.


    sudo apt --purge autoremove xubuntu-desktop

    Problem was it left stuff behind. In this...
  13. [SOLVED] Re: Any way to make a full clone and/or image of mounted running drive? (running 21.0

    Fair enough. I've never had a bad update that I've been aware of of but I guess it can happen. Especially if a large number of ppa's are in use. Thank you for that.
  14. [SOLVED] Re: Any way to make a full clone and/or image of mounted running drive? (running 21.0

    If you use LVM, BTRFS, or ZFS you can do a snapshot. Then mount the snapshot and back it up while the original is still humming away doing it's job.

    Are you sure a full clone is the way to go...
  15. [SOLVED] Re: Root crontab not running at all.

    You are correct on Environment. I just found it. I had a root check to run. Removing this allowed it to work.


    if [ "$USER" = root ] ; then

    I'm not sure why that didn't work when I know I had...
  16. [SOLVED] Re: Root crontab not running at all.

    I got an echo to pipe to a test file with and without full path. Nothing more complex though. Even a straight duplicity command (with or without full path) doesn't run. I went ahead and figured out a...
  17. [SOLVED] Root crontab not running at all.

    The script works manually. On the root crontab it doesn't even run. Doesn't even enter the log that it tried or anything.


    # cat root # DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE - edit the master and reinstall.

    I'm not sure how much that will be something for you. But it's a barebones build from the ground up. Very minimal. I've debated doing a build myself but I'm just...

    [xubuntu] Re: DNS recommended?

    That or run your own caching dns locally. But we are talking between hundredths or thousandths of a second depending on isp. Is it worth it? You decide.
  20. [ubuntu] Re: Any risks on getting rid of Windows? Also any easy ways for me to do it

    Interesting point. Never looked at it like that. Maybe due to the reputation Linux has. First thing people seem to think of is a command line nightmare. That or it's association with a hacker /...
  21. [xubuntu] Re: Cannot create a file in /home directory

    Indeed. Read only sounds like the issue here. You probably didn't do that intentionally. May mean disk is going

    Foot, meet mouth. Thank you.
  23. Re: Why do some of the most established programs have poor documentation?

    This was and still is my biggest problem. I usually resort to googling syntax for some things because the man pages are about useless for that. They tell you options you can pass but not the...
  24. [ubuntu] Re: Any risks on getting rid of Windows? Also any easy ways for me to do it

    The only risk in my case was disappointment. I wanted to switch to Linux exclusively but I like my games. Proton / Lutris / Wine are good but they do have issues. I ultimately went bare metal Windows...
  25. Re: set Ubuntu back to a "recovery point!?

    Is also LVM snapshots but that isn't a live thing. Would need to restore it, when it's done reboot. I think it would work that way anyway. I've messed with it on vms before. Takes awhile though. Not...
