    [ubuntu] Re: rdiff-backup syntax

    I don't know the answer to your question about the glopping-filelist, but the last time I used rdiff-backup was in 2013 or 2014.

    This was what I used:

    /usr/bin/rdiff-backup --print-statistics...

    [SOLVED] Re: About Linux command line

    You could try it this way, but I have no idea if it will work or not.

  3. Re: I have found a data killing defect in the disk encryption - linked to Kernel proc

    It might help if you mentioned which encryption utility you used to encrypt the drives.

    Do you mean you stored the encryption keys on the TPM of that specific machine?

    What browser are you using to download those files? If you want, you can try downloading the torrent file and see if it fails as well.

    They can be found here:...

    [ubuntu] Re: Predetermined State Computing

    That's called booting the OS to a ramdisk. However, you still need store the files someone for them to be loaded into memory, maybe booting via pxe or something.

    [SOLVED] Re: Problem with updating 21.04

    Thanks for that. I've run into that with my install of proxmox. I think it's got like a 1GB /boot partition that fills up quite fast.

    I don't really have much to say about it, other than it sounds like a nice project.

    I can only speak for myself... I wrote and maintained a virtualbox auto-shutdown/boot script for a few years but...
  9. Re: chrome says your time is ahead on windows xp

    Thanks! That would definitely explain it because Chrome uses the Windows certificate store and any changes to that are pushed out via Windows update.

    I don't think Firefox does by default, but...
  10. Re: chrome says your time is ahead on windows xp

    That is never a good idea. Setting that property will cause Chrome to accept all certificates, even if they are invalid or expired. It might "work" for your issue, but its not something you should be...
  11. [ubuntu] Re: virt-p2v, clonezilla, or dd > disk.img

    I've used clonezilla for that task since it'll only clone the used blocks. dd would take everything, so if there is a bunch of free space, clonezilla will likely be faster.

    I haven't used virt-p2v...

    It would probably help if you mentioned which version of Ubuntu you are using and what errors you are getting.

    It should be noted that apt clean would only remove any cached archives from...

    Please ensure you make backups of any data you wish you keep. User Error, hardware failure, power failure, etc can all cause data loss.

  14. [ubuntu] Re: chmod to give a remote server read priveleges to a client home directory

    All valid points.

    Not to mention, that in the case of running SSH on two servers that are local to you, ensuring the port SSH is running on isn't open to the internet is also a good idea.

  15. [SOLVED] Re: Full disk encryption--an explanation of exactly how does it work from the user's

    That makes sense. I've lost count of the number of times I've made a typo when trying to punch in my encryption key and having to retype it in. It's a minor inconvenience through, since there isn't a...
  16. [ubuntu] Re: Is it possible to backup Mac APFS personal data to Ubuntu server ext4 HDD ?

    That's good news.




    Possibly. It's very odd through. Do you have anything in the samba logs in /var/logs?

    I haven't had much experience with macs, so I can't tell you if that behavior is...
  17. [ubuntu] Re: Is it possible to backup Mac APFS personal data to Ubuntu server ext4 HDD ?

    It'll be a little different if you are not using the default port.

    You'll need to add -e "ssh -p 2222" like the example below, so rsync knows what port to connect on.


    rsync -avz -e "ssh -p...
  18. [ubuntu] Re: Is it possible to backup Mac APFS personal data to Ubuntu server ext4 HDD ?

    You can use SSH to do file transfers even on local connections. It's just the protocol in use.

    I use it when I am backing up to my second server.

    Instead of trying to use the mounted smb share,...
  19. [ubuntu] Re: Is it possible to backup Mac APFS personal data to Ubuntu server ext4 HDD ?

    Same here. That's probably the next step if this doesn't work.

    I'm trying to figure out if it's the way they are transferring the files via local mount instead of SSH that is the problem or if...
  20. [ubuntu] Re: Is it possible to backup Mac APFS personal data to Ubuntu server ext4 HDD ?

    That's good news! At least that means the command is working correctly.

    So, you have the server's folder mounted to /Users/myusername/Volumes/Storage/Backup/Mac/rsync right?

    How is that...
  21. [ubuntu] Re: Is it possible to backup Mac APFS personal data to Ubuntu server ext4 HDD ?

    That's what I expected - no errors about memory.

    Can you run a test by running rsync locally and see if it still fails? Assuming you have enough free disk space on the mac.
  22. [ubuntu] Re: Is it possible to backup Mac APFS personal data to Ubuntu server ext4 HDD ?

    I don't think it's a firewall issue, because we got the SIGTERM error.

    What you can do is try running this command and see if it returns anything.


    sudo grep -i -r 'out of memory' /var/log/

  23. [ubuntu] Re: Is it possible to backup Mac APFS personal data to Ubuntu server ext4 HDD ?

    OK, that gives us some more info.

    Can you check on your server and run dmesg or check the system log?


    sudo dmesg | tail -n 50


    sudo tail -n 50 /var/log/syslog
  24. [ubuntu] Re: Is it possible to backup Mac APFS personal data to Ubuntu server ext4 HDD ?

    That's super strange.

    Can you try running it with these arguments?
