    Hope you realize those are just comments for reminders what each column means. Nothing more.
  2. Re: root password doesn't change, supports 2 passwords

    Looks like my update was missed.

    check out section 5 manpage for passwd. LOWER CASE is required.

  4. [ubuntu] Re: Slower file copying in Ubuntu than in Windows

    I think the OP is using a flash USB thumb drive, not an SSD or spinning HDD for the target on Windows.

    Herman, hope you aren't THAT near death. I've had 2 SSDs fail with less than 2 yrs of use.
  5. Re: root password doesn't change, supports 2 passwords

    Tested on an 18.04 server and couldn't reproduce the issue there either.

    Can you please show the steps involved?
  6. Re: root password doesn't change, supports 2 passwords

    Ubuntu is different from CentOS, Debian, Fedora or Slackware which all set the root account at install time.

    Thinking a little more, perhaps systemd broke something? ...

    Re: Hard drive crashed after Ubuntu update?

    If the HDD was already dying, then writing lots of new data to it could have exceeded the limits of allowed failed sectors.

    Or if the HDD controller was failing.

    Or if the cable was failing...

    We use sudo techniques instead in Ubuntu.

    Sorry, but I cannot help with Win10 or using any Windows as a file server. I've never done that beyond a trivial file copy once a month. I won't leave important files on Windows.
    I haven't used...
  10. [ubuntu] Re: Slower file copying in Ubuntu than in Windows

    Funny how when 2 different people read the same articles, they come up with completely different outcomes.

    For flash storage, I'd use F2FS. Almost always, it is faster than the alternatives AND...

  12. [ubuntu] Re: Slower file copying in Ubuntu than in Windows

    I'm confused.
    You are using journalled file systems with a USB flash drive? With flash storage, using a journalled file system would be hard on the write counts before death.

    I'm also confused...

    Re: What is Wayland

    Not sure I understand the question.

    VNC is nothing like remote X11 from a flexibility and useability perspective. A browser running on 1 remote system. 8 xterms are each running on 8 different...
  14. [ubuntu] Re: Slower file copying in Ubuntu than in Windows

    What file systems are being used on the source and target? Native Linux file systems usually have kernel drivers. Non-native file systems, like FAT32, exFAT, NTFS, do not and will always be slower....

    Re: Auto Mount NAS with fstab Not Working

    If you have things working, ignore what I've written below. It is just some things I've learned from senior Unix admins over the decades.

    Re: Auto Mount NAS with fstab Not Working

    I don't have 19.10. We are LTS-only here. Mounting at boot and automounting are different things, but that isn't important.

    I don't see anything clearly wrong with the fstab line. I use autofs...

  18. Re: ubuntu 16.04.6 LTS how to turn off default ports

    I know nothing about 19.10 or Wayland but if you just ssh remote-host, no GUI programs can be run on any Unix X/Windows client showing the display back on the X/Server machine.

    On a 16.04 or...
