  1. [ubuntu] Re: rdiff-backup: how to exclude hidden files and folders ?

    **/Applications

    matches any parent directories with 'Applications' in the name. The '**' says to match any number of parent directories - 1, 2, 3, 200, 900 .... doesn't matter.
  2. [ubuntu] Re: recurring hard drive corruption all of a sudden on two different computers!

    syslog is just 1 log file. There are others. Check out journalctl to see the hardware logs. That command has all sorts of filter capabilities. Time, subsystem, errors are just some of the filters....
  3. [ubuntu] Re: recurring hard drive corruption all of a sudden on two different computers!

    Samsung 850 EVO had some issues a few years ago. A firmware update to the drive or bios was needed. Sorry, I don't recall which.

    Also, check the system log files for errors and warnings. That...
  4. [ubuntu] Re: Force separate per user settings for VPN program?

    On Unix systems, networking is shared system-wide, so this is NOT unusual. Routing tables are system-wide and every VPN that I've seen does something with the routing tables to enable the VPN.

  5. [ubuntu] Re: rdiff-backup: how to exclude hidden files and folders ?

    So, I tried to answer with my guess and the forum software is blocking it. Sorry.

    I've never used --exclude-filelist. I work from the opposite method. Exclude everything, then specifically...
  6. Re: Need some help sharing Ubuntu wired with xp

    Kids should be using Linux for their homework. Use a lite distro, say xfce/lxqt/mate as the base and show them libreoffice. They will figure it out and will be teaching you in a week.

  7. [ubuntu] Re: recurring hard drive corruption all of a sudden on two different computers!

    Before assuming it is the kernel, I'd rule out bad hardware issues. Besides having to systems with the same issue, I'd look at the HDD, SSD, and cables to those devices. A bad update _could_ have...
  8. Re: Why do some of the most established programs have poor documentation?

    Not really. I've had the same complaint about info. I see the GNU effort to push info pages like when a single protestor shows up to protest something that nobody else cares about. The issue is...

    Re: Remote desktop through the browser?

    Agreed, but I'd go with TinyCore Lite and x2go for a desktop.

    Plus, there are efficiencies when end-users are running their desktops on the same system. A week after they move over, I show them...
  10. Re: Why do some of the most established programs have poor documentation?

    $ info sed

    GNU wanted everyone to use 'info' instead of man. They lost on the format but haven't given up trying. Every time GNU creates a manpage, they tend to add a "for more information, see...
  11. Re: X265 encoding on Linux vs Windows, Why windows is faster?!

    MS-Windows has a $2.15T company behind it, with a single vision.

    Linux has about $1B behind it from 250 different companies, each doing their own stuff, as they like, separately. We have lots of...

    Re: Remote desktop through the browser?

    A remote desktop over a browser connection adds a huge layer of security risks. HTTPS has lots of issues, unless you get everything perfect. TLS versions under 1.3 have all been cracked, for...
  13. Re: Linux desktop login acconts like Active Directory.

    LDAP (or FreeIPA) and NFS are what you seek.

    The first 2 are authentication directories. NFS is for network storage so when a user logs in, they have their own HOME directory on any machine. ...
  14. [ubuntu] Re: Any risks on getting rid of Windows? Also any easy ways for me to do it

    Usually, people new to Linux, which is NOTHING LIKE Windows, need some time to migrate to any new OS effectively. At least a year if you are learning Linux at the same time. Often the Linux solution...
  15. Re: Why do some of the most established programs have poor documentation?

    The udev team left the building about 10 yrs ago and handed over the code to the systemd team. Udev was never meant to be touched by end-users. It is for admins and distro makers. I've touched udev...
  16. Re: What are advantages to using docker for wordpress in ubuntu?

    I consider the "type-1/2" all marketing. For me it is enterprise or desktop hypervisors, which generally speaks more about stability and performance vs some fancy GUI.

    Re: Convert VHS tape to mp4

    Appears so. https://www.dvdwalmart.com/services-and-pricing/videotape-transfer web searching is amazing.

    Re: downgrading qemu on Ubuntu 18.04

    I use LVM LVs for my VM storage. The LV is passed as a block device into the VM. libvirt understands how to use an LVM storage pool. Creating a 50G VM storage area is nearly instant - another...

    VHS player --> USB Tuner/Converter --> Computer

    I know nothing about Sony V8 tapes. SONY is known for using proprietary stuff, so I'd have doubts. If I were looking for a VHS player (I own 2...

    Re: Convert VHS tape to mp4

    There's no player.
    It is about $130 too expensive. All you need is a player for the tapes, a cable and a $30 USB TV tuner. I remember this question being asked about once a year in these forums....

    Or use an ssh SOCKS5 proxy via ssh, if the webapp on the other machine will only bind to localhost. That's not hard.

    [ubuntu] Re: My monitor is not recognized

    Do other computers work with the same cable and monitor?
    If so, then it is probably the video card failing.
    If not, then it is probably the cable or monitor with the problem.

    If the computer is...
