    Re: Run fsck on root filesystem

    I took the exact error message and googled it:
    https://askubuntu.com/questions/1149957/unable-to-login-to-account-in-ubuntu-18-04-vmware-workstation-15-after-update
    That points to something related...
  2. Re: Running VMWare workstation player on top of workstation player

    You've lost me. QEMU is an emulator in software for almost any hardware CPUs available. I have no idea how VMware Workstation handles that, since qemu is a separate package to be installed. I...
  3. Re: Only getting 32 bit options in Virtual Box

    https://superuser.com/questions/866962/why-does-virtualbox-only-have-32-bit-option-no-64-bit-option-on-windows-7
    Is hyper-v enabled and all hyper-v services disabled?
  4. Re: Only getting 32 bit options in Virtual Box

    The only other thing I could guess is that it really isn't a 64-bit Ubuntu installed? uname -m should show the architecture.

    $ uname -m
    armv7l

    $ uname -m
    x86_64

    I don't have any other...
  5. Re: I want to print screen and then open in a graphic viewer

    Sorry, I don't know an easy way, but I do know a way that is 3 steps using a little script and connecting a keyboard chord to make it happen.
    Perhaps some other people will respond with an easier...
  6. Re: Move files and directories into a non-empty directory

    I would use rsync, then use an inverse-recursive rmdir to clean up empty directories. Then I'd assume that any directories that aren't empty, had some other issue.

    I've never used the...
  7. Re: Running VMWare workstation player on top of workstation player

    Is "nested virtualization" enabled? That's the key word.
    Have you validated the image file?
    Do other OSes run under the nested virtualization?
    It could be that GNS expects very specific device...
  8. Re: Only getting 32 bit options in Virtual Box

    Well, my only AMD CPU is a Ryzen 5 2600. ;)

    Do you have only 1 hypervisor installed? Only 1 can "grab" the hardware.
  9. Re: Is it possible to have a swap file on another hard drive other than the OS disk

    Well, as others have said, you can setup lots of swap if you like, but that makes me curious why?
    Within the last 6 months, there was a long thread about swap sizing in these forums with lots of...
  10. Re: Where to go in order to try to persuade Ubuntu to offer two versions of chromium?

    Bring them 10 clients with 100K+ paid support systems each who won't sign the contract without a non-snap chromium packing solution. But I seriously doubt that Canonical is packaging Chromium. I...

    Re: How to mount an external drive on 20.04 ?

    Search for the USB ID and linux to see if it is supported. It appears to be an extremely old drive, from 2012 timeframe or did I misread that?

    Try a different USB port. Use USB2, not USB3 ports....
  13. Re: I hate Snap. How can I reinstall a Snap package with Apt?

    I was forced to add the snap infrastructure back because lxd is only provided as a snap package since v2.x. I'm addicted to lxd containers, which surprisingly aren't as finicky as docker containers...

    As SeijiSensei said, rsync is THE tool for mirroring files between 2 locations.

    I don't know what the Lubuntu ISO does, but other Ubuntu ISO files automatically validate themselves at the first boot from the media unless you break out of the default check.

    Re: Run fsck on root filesystem

    Well, crap.
    Is the storage encrypted or using LVM or ZFS or btrfs? Those shouldn't break using the "Recovery" menu method, but if that is the situation, ouch.

    The sudo touch /forcefsck method...

    Re: How to mount an external drive on 20.04 ?

    External storage can use or not use LVM. It is up to you. For data-only, not an OS, there are reasons for both of those options. Or you could decide to use ZFS or one of the 20+ other solutions....

    Be certain you can accept the security implications of doing this. There are some internal to the OpenVPN code, not just on your local file system.

    [server] Re: user IDE plus server?

    What do you mean my "server?" Which server? Apache, Postgressql, wireguard, plex, nfs, 20,000 others? If you have any version of Ubuntu installed, just install the specific "server" packages you...
  20. [SOLVED] Re: A safe method of passing login credentials to openvpn automatically?

    I use login.cf.

    Inside the .ovpn file,

    auth-user-pass /etc/openvpn/login.cf
    OpenVPN says this method can make the keys available in RAM.

    Inside /etc/openvpn/login.cf

  21. [UbuntuGnome] Re: Start up script to run an app is not working properly

    I'm not a GUI user, so I can't answer that. GUI programs often spew junk output that isn't actually errors to stderr. They expect most people will be pushing a button to start their programs, so all...

    [ubuntu] Re: Network interfaces disapeared

    Which release? 17.10 and later use netplan, not the interfaces file unless you go out of your way to retain that. At least that's my understanding.

    Re: Gaming hardware with Linux?

    If your budget is $4000, you won't have any problem. Get a Core i9 with 64G-128G of RAM and the most expensive AMD GPU you can get.
    Are you building the system on your own? Then you can ensure the...
