    [ubuntu] Re: Harddisks getting corrupted

    Run hardware tests.
    Look at the dmesg - use journalctl -b -1.

    Does this server not have IPMI or a RIBLO card? Think of how much time that would have saved.

    Even with failing RAM, I get...

    [SOLVED] Re: need help automounting drives using fstab

    Whenever I'm forced back to Windows, there are hundreds of Linux tools that I miss. Goes to show that it is purely a matter of perspective.

    Re: Mdadm raid 1 assembly lost after reboot

    The translation is off and a little scary. All sorts of partitions won't show up in the fstab that still exist and have valuable data.
    But you are using LVM, so all the fstab entries with...

    [SOLVED] Re: need help automounting drives using fstab

    autofs mounts whenever **any** process requests access. No user has to do anything. If samba tries to access the storage, for any reason and it isn't mounted, then it will be, automatically. If...

    Re: Mdadm raid 1 assembly lost after reboot

    Always create a partition, specifically sized, to hold the mdadm array. Using the whole drive is NOT a best practice for a number of reasons. Replacement disks from other vendors can be sized...

    Re: Mdadm raid 1 assembly lost after reboot

    The fstab file clearly shows that LVM is being used with a "root" LV and "swap_1" LV. Run sudo lvs if you don't believe me. Can also run sudo vgs and sudo pvs to get the full summary of LVM PVs,...

    Re: ubuntu aes_x86_64 not loaded

    If you use dm-crypt with LUKS, I bet it will all "just work." LUKS is the native Linux encryption. Everything else is non-native.

    To create/setup a new LUKS container, use cryptsetup - that's the...

    Yes, that can be done, but it is non-trivial and requires a second GPU assigned exclusively to the VM that is high-end (passthru doesn't work with the cheaper GPUs), some BIOS settings, some MB...

    Re: About MXLinux

    Sorry, I avoid KDE software.

    I've had problems running real videoeditors in VMs. They **really** need direct access to the GPU. Some refuse to work without that access, IME.

    Is there a reason you use mdadm and LVM? LVM can do a few...

    I hope you've found a solution. It isn't what we suggested as answers to the question. We suggested using LVM methods (pvmove or mirroring) or testing your backup/restore processes (fsarchiver is an...
  15. [ubuntu] Re: Make xdotool accessible to every local user in ubuntu

    Perhaps understanding how X11 works would be helpful? Programs run _under_ X11, so if they are started outside that session, there shouldn't be any access allowed. X11 doesn't have much security, but...

    Re: About migration and backup

    I think doing anything with LVM that doesn't include CAREFULLY reviewing the manpages and looking through REPUTABLE web tutorials would be a mistake. Don't just "wing it" and hope for the best.

    Re: About migration and backup

    Are you using LVM? If so, you can leave the system running and use pvmove.
    Or
    you can create new mirror LVs, let the data sync and break the mirror.
    I'm assuming that you want to leave the system...
  19. Re: 20.04 Postfix - Dovecot user created can't send email. Why?

    We can. I use vimwiki to save off links and any content with my notes added. For stuff I want to keep a local copy, there's wallabag. Or did you want a way for the forum software to make this easy?

  23. Re: How to Setup Local DNS Using /etc/hosts - NOT WORKING

    Jenkins is part of a CI/CD setup.
