  1. Re: change login without password to login with password.

    Eish... that sounds to me like a relatively easily exploitable feature.
  2. Re: Is clone operation blocked ? 10 hours on "Saving OS info from the device"

    It would indeed be much faster to prepare a file system with the diskutility and then copying the data over with rsync.

    Re: rsync not copying everything

    There are multiple underlying file system issues that can prevent copying. Rsync can only copy that which it has been granted access to. Even when running as root, SELinux or AppArmor can still...

    [SOLVED] Re: need monitor config info

  7. Re: Large transfers over the Internet stalling.

    Different simptoms of the same problem - lost packets, causing rsync to get confused.
  8. Re: Large transfers over the Internet stalling.

    You need to devise a script that will watch rsync and if necessary, kill it and restart it.

  10. Re: Large transfers over the Internet stalling.

    The programs ifconfig or ip can show you whether there are packet errors (bad HW).
  11. Re: Large transfers over the Internet stalling.

    Rsync has a bandwidth parameter. Slowing it down a bit can prevent complete stalls in my experience.

    The least hassle would be to enable the Guest Account.

    The guest account works like a kiosk and gets overwritten on each login.

    I use a simple trick to confirm that a disk is mounted:

  21. [server] Re: File Sharing - nfs-kernel-server - Service Won't Start

    Usually, the issue is that the network is still down when nfsd tries to start. If you can start it manually when the system is up and running, that kind of proves it and then you could move the nfsd...

    Everything you never wanted to know about swap, is described in man swapon. It is a very good man page and is well worth a read.
  25. Re: Rsync: why different number of files in destination vs. source?

    You could use ls to make a list of each directory, then compare the two lists with diff. Then you will know exactly what is different.
