    How did you climb up the ladder?

    When I was your age I worked for slightly above minimum wage at a job I didn't like, so I decided to go back to school for Computer Science. I was able to move in to QA shortly after, and found a job as a software engineer before I graduated.

    Why can't we mount multiple filesystem in same mountpoint?

    I think what your professor is asking you is, what happens if you want to save a file in mount_point/ which file system would it use?

    Why Do I Bother

    What kind of software do you need to do make a book? A LaTeX editor? Or do they use something else? Or do you mean software to scrape your site?

    Why Do I Bother

    I've written a few articles and have a ton of notes for more. They're more focused on specific problems we run into in class at my university. I haven't published any yet, but I have a domain name and plan on publishing some soon. When I ask myself why I want to do this, the main reason is that...

    Need a Perl Guru.

    Stroustrup's The C++ Programming Language would be the equivalent. It's extremely well written. Like K&R, it's probably not best for the absolute beginner. It's quite a bit thicker than K&R, though.

    Solved 12TB Drive only showing up as 2TB

    Yes, but my first post shows sdc1 as being 10.9T. Am I misinterpreting the output? hmmm...I used parted. Maybe I didn't change a default somewhere. Let me go back and check... I just tried the steps in atanere's article and that did it! I don't know why this works from within parted...

    Solved 12TB Drive only showing up as 2TB

    That's interesting. lsblk shows size as 10.9T (above), while lsblk -f shows FSAVAIL and FSUSE as if it were only the 2T. There is a 1.9T backup file on the drive now. $ lsblk -f NAME FSTYPE FSVER LABEL UUID FSAVAIL FSUSE% MOUNTPOINTS sdc...

    Solved 12TB Drive only showing up as 2TB

    My 12 TB drive is only showing up as 2 TB in df -h. lsblk is showing correctly (irrelevant drive info removed): $ lsblk NAME MAJ:MIN RM SIZE RO TYPE MOUNTPOINTS sdc 8:32 0 10.9T 0 disk └─sdc1 8:33 0 10.9T 0 part /mnt/backup $ df -h Filesystem Size Used...

    Raid 1 not working

    Oh, another thing I thought was odd. When I get mdadm --build /dev/md127 to work by using sdb1 alone, I get the following output from lsblk. md126 comes up below md127. I don't know why or where md126 came from. sdb 8:16 0 1.8T 0 disk └─sdb1 8:17 0 1.8T 0 part...

    Raid 1 not working

    I'm hoping some of the experts can help me out with this. There's a lot going on here. I have a dual boot system running Arch and Gentoo. I had a 2TB raid1 drive (2 mirrored 2TB drives), and recently (about a month ago) installed a 12TB standalone drive. I'm also using reFind if that matters...

    Hello Linux Nerds

    Absolutely you will! That was my main reason for finally breaking away from Windows as much as possible and switching to Linux.

    You could run htop to see what's running at the time and the resources it's using. You can also use yhe kill command to kill a process.

    How to learn operating systems fundamentals NOT LINUX?

    The Linux Prigramming Interface is also an excellent book. I know you don't just want to build another Linux, but it really delves deeper than most books and looks at how things are implented.

    Satanic Music, Satanic Ritual Music, Satanic Chants and other Dark Music

    I don't like this stuff either, and maybe this wasn't the best way to handle it. I also don't think having this stuff show up on the forum sends a good message about what this sire is for. But I'm not sure @f33dm3bits was out of line, given that certain other types of music was permitted...

    vim isn't working

    Do you know how to use Vim? Were you in insert mode when you started typing (Vim does not open in insert mode)? What do you mean it won't allow you to save? Do you get an error?

    Technologies We Grew Up With That are Now Obsolete

    I remember how excited I was when I found software that would allow you to resume your download in the event you got cut off by, for example, someone trying to pick up and use the phone, thus disconnecting your modem. I want to say it was called GoZilla? Web search reveals it was Go!Zilla...

    I'm scared how long RHCSA will take me to learn. Will learning the exam(not for certificate) be worth it?

    No one can answer whether it will be worth it for you. What are your goals? What prompted you to want to do this in the first place? Why is going to take you a day to answer one question? And what are you really going to miss out on in life if you're studying for less than 9 months...

    What to get after installing Linux

    I use my machines for school, so some of the first things I install are things like: NeoVim, Git, Python, Miniconda, Brave, plug-in, CMUS, and a good pdf reader. Then I'll configure NeoVim with kickstart.
