    Re: External USB drive becoming read only.

    Thanks kurt18947, m-disc is it. The m-disc drives do work with normal DVDs and blurays too, I understand, so they aren't 1-trick tools.
  2. [ubuntu] Re: how do you mount or to open up ddrescue .img

    Thanks for the clarity. I'll ignore sda.

    If you backed up the whole drive, not just the partitions that you want, you'll need to use some math or kpartx to figure out where the partition(s) are...

    Re: Does it matter which NIC I use?

    I've had GigE realtek and maxell NICs fail or be really slow. Some of the Realtek RTL8111 come in many, many, many, different versions - some work well out of the box, and others don't work at all,...

    Re: External USB drive becoming read only.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^ This. All storage is going to fail. We don't get to pick when. Sometimes it fails on day 2 and sometimes it fails after 15 yrs. Often, drives provide hints that something is wrong, but...
  5. [ubuntu] Re: how do you mount or to open up ddrescue .img

    /dev/sdb is the whole drive, not the partition. You cannot mount the whole drive. You'll need to figure out the offsets for each partition that has a file system and mount those.

    Please edit your...

  7. Re: Did someone log into my PC and edit auth.log entries to cover tracks?

    Actually, using LUKS with 2FA **does** stop access to the computer data, unless the LUKS encryption is unlocked when the attacker arrives. Since while disk encryption unlocks before booting/login,...

    I use recoll extensively, but not for email. Sorry. My IMAP email server has fantastic search capability (added by Yahoo!), so all searching happens on the server, never the client. It is...
  10. Re: /usr/local/lib is not in the path anymore

    /usr/local/lib has never been in the PATH. PATH is for executable programs.

    /usr/local/lib would be used by shared libraries - .so files. Where to look for those is controlled by the...
  11. Re: Dual band router - Only connecting to one band - HughesNet Internet

    Ah ... 2.4 Ghz and 5.8 Ghz wifi bands. <slaps forehead>! The 2.4 Ghz stuff is clearly 2.4 Ghz, but the 5.8 Ghz stuff ... seems to be from 5.18 GHz - 5.7 GHz. Confusing, at least to me.

    "latest Ubuntu" isn't clear and usually, it isn't actually true. Today, non-experts shouldn't be running the "latest ubuntu", so please be exact.
    lsb_release -a is the command.

    If the attacker isn't just a normal roommate, but some sort of highly motivated "state actor", then any bus connection can be used - PCI, PCIe, firewire, USB, Thunderbolt - any bus can be abused. I'd...

  16. Re: Did someone log into my PC and edit auth.log entries to cover tracks?

    If you cannot restrict physical access to the system, then there isn't anything that can be done. With physical access, anything is possible.
    There is 1 way to fight that. Whole disk encryption...

  18. [ubuntu] Re: how do you mount or to open up ddrescue .img

    What was the ddrescue/dd/cp command used? Exactly which device file was the source?
    Also, may want to specify the type of file system to be mounted. Don't make it guess.
