    [ubuntu] Re: Compatible RAID Card for 18.04?

    Can you pass the disks directly to Ubuntu, bypassing or switching off the RAID functionality on the card or is there a disk controller on the motherboard?
    If so you could use a software raid; mdadm...
  3. Re: Ubuntu 18.04.03 LTS Showing half ram (4GB) instaed of 8

    One of your memory modules is not detected by the BIOS, but it is better to check it in the BIOS screen itself.
    It looks like a hardware problem, probably some contact or timing issues, if it works...
  4. Re: Building a PC in 2019: your suggestions

    I run Virtual Machines on a Ryzen 3 2200G with 16GB of memory. I love Virtualbox, I use QEMU/KVM too, its disk IO is faster, but Virtualbox is more user-friendly and far more robust. Looking at your...
  5. [ubuntu] Re: Problems Installing in Oracle VM VirtualBox

    Do you run a 32-bit processor or 32-bits Windows? If not, remove the PAE/NX selection from the Processor Tab of the System definition.
  6. [ubuntu] Re: VirtualBox will not run after latest update

    Re: Multiple Desktop Environments

    What is the problem of using VMs? Yes the performance will be different, but for comparison it will be good enough. I use my VMs daily on top of ZFS and in some cases my performance is better than on...
  9. [SOLVED] Re: 19.04 has changed my login and I have access to nothing

    The wording of oldfred is somewhat incomplete with respect to 'file corruption'. If your file-system is corrupted, fsck will find it and try to repair it. If a file itself is corrupted due to e.g. a...

    Re: Zfs

    BTRFS is supported in the Ubuntu installers. I used it for Xubuntu 18.04 and Peppermint 9 (a distro based on Ubuntu 18.04). It allows to install the system on one BTRFS partition, but after the...

    Re: Zfs

    ZFS is the best modern file system. I use it with Ubuntu 19.04 on a Ryzen 3 2200G with 16 GB DDR4. Three months ago I used it on a 2008 HP dc5850 with an 4-core AMD Phenom II and 8 GB DDR2.

  20. Re: LTS of Ubuntu is the most popular version?

    Virtual Machines are not slow at all. I would say my response time in the VMs are the best. My Host file system is ZFS and everything is LZ4 compressed, which more or less halves the number of disk...

    Your Dad was right, DOS or the terminal are a hassle and you have to remember too many commands or you have to look at a manual.
