  1. [other] Re: Headless Server Goes Completely Offline While tuned still on

    Does teamviewer have a timeout? I'm not a fan of third party access systems.

    I've been running Ubuntu servers for ... well ... forever and none of my servers do that. I don't use teamviewer or...

    A command line gets interpreted by the shell. Many "special characters" have special meaning to the shell, so quoting is the minimal you should do. Using a credentials file would be even better for...

    Re: System Restore

    Well, there are many solutions. If you use a volume manager like ZFS or LVM, then snapshots allow this rollback. But the snapshots use storage and prevent those blocks from being modified. Snapshot...
  4. Re: chown to move folders off laptop (booted off flash drive)

    chown or chmod?
    If it were me, I'd leave both of those alone, then create a new user on the current OS with a uid of 1000, then su - into that userid and access to the files will all work.
    Or you...

  6. Re: What is the lightest .txt editor (what is a clone of windows notepad)

    All true. But I've never seen notepad on any router. Not once. I would call emacs a beast, not vim. Vim is as tiny as you like or as huge as you like thanks to the addon capabilities.

  9. [ubuntu] Re: Mounting NFS server with "Files" application (getting "mount point does not exist

    You are correct, of course. I was trying to point out the difference in computer-to-computer authentication vs user-to-computer authentication. There is not user-specific authentication to access...

    Re: Cannot create flash drive?!

    I don't use Windows, so no, I don't have these problems. I used 'cp' to create a 21.10 flash drive. Worked fine. I'd think any Unix-based OS could do the same with a non-corrupt ISO.

    Re: Unable to access mounted NAS

    Mounting CIFS or NFS storage underneath a HOME directory is asking for problems. Mount the storage elsewhere, then use a symbolic link to make access from HOME easier. Just a few weeks ago, someone...
  12. Re: What is the lightest .txt editor (what is a clone of windows notepad)

    There is only 1 editor for all platforms. vi/vim.
    Don't bother with any others. Vim is infinitely extensible and 1000x more efficient than any others. I've probably seen over 100 different...

  14. [ubuntu] Re: Mounting NFS server with "Files" application (getting "mount point does not exist

    NFS is a server-to-server protocol. Trying to use it as a user-to-server protocol will end in failure.
    Typcially, NFS mounts are handled in the /etc/fstab file or using something like autofs (you...

    Did you try to disable the default firefox setting that uses direct GPU access?

    Attempting to get GPU passthru working is not a "beginner level" task. Perhaps 1 in 100 people using virtualization attempt this and I'm guessing over 80% fail.
    If it does work, there will be...

    There are different needs for different system setups.

    /boot/efi is recommended to be 500MB by some respected people. I've never used more than 20MB, so it seems like 10x too much. The more you...
