    Re: Fanless mini PCs

    This kind of specs is not going to be that attainable in a mini PC without active cooling. An I5 usually doesn't come with hyperthreading so it's a quad core chip, unless it's a laptop version which...
  2. Re: Security of virtualized guest Ubuntu with Windows 10 host vs dual boot?


    It depends. I forget exactly how the Windows 10 reactivation works. I guess if win 10 was pre-installed then backing it up using macrium reflect and loading into a virtual machine might...

    I got the numbers I was after - Which was ideally how many virtual machines can you run on SSDs vs Hard Drives. I thought it was about 4 with my hardware. Seems I was wrong.

    [SOLVED] Re: Ubuntu 18.04 k3b permissions problem

    Honestly I've never ever messed with permissions or even thought to do it for k3b. Just install and run and always works fine. I recently burned an linux ISO to a CD on stock install.

  6. Re: SSD Raid aray - worth it?

    Nah. Not using the RAID0 now. I just finished backing up my XCP-NG hypervisor and relegating the spinning drives to backup as I've got some SSDs coming in the post.

    Agree on this. Clementine is really good. It used to or still is compatible with apple devices too which is handy.
  8. Re: Should I use the latest Ubuntu or LTS version?

    As above, LTS. You can always go to the software authors website and get the newest software release of your favourite app if it has not been put in the repos yet, like gimp image editor, etc.

    Re: need help badly with RAID5 recovery

    Your screen says it's raid 0 so it's 2x disks acting as 1 now? and raid 5 can only recover from 1 disk failure which should have been switched when it failed.

    Re: this laptop seems interesting.

    It looks retro in the wrong kind of way though. I wish it had a really fast cpu and ram hidden inside and the retro was just the look.

  11. Re: SSD Raid aray - worth it?

    True, good points. I ended up getting a 500GB SSD and mixing it with a 250GB not in a raid for the hypervisor. Guess I'll see how that goes. Relegate the HDDs to storage.

    Hey all.

    As for support - Meh, I fix my own problems :p / Tend not to break stuff / have backups / snapshots.

    In that sense I prefer to think I know what I'm doing before breaking the system.

    Re: do you use live distros often and why.

    As above, sometimes you just need the right tool for the job and having the live image can be handy. I tend to just have the ubuntu installer loaded on a usb stick at the latest version ready to go.
