    Questions on using disks, making filesystems, and mounting

    Wiz, I appreciate your help, but alas....I'm not really a gamer I expect to do some server/database stuff with this box and hence the ginormous disk sizes...... Thanks, keith

    Questions on using disks, making filesystems, and mounting

    Hi all, Though I think I might understand some of this, I'm not sure how much I REALLY understand so your help is greatly appreciated. I have an Ubuntu box with three SDDs installed, a 500 gb and two 1 tb drives. After installation the root filesystem (and everything else) is on the 500 gb...

    change font size in terminal mode?

    Hi all, i have installed Ubuntu Server on my system, which provides no desktop GUI by default. This is fine. However, working from the command line I find the fontsize is too small for my weary old eyes and would like to make it larger. I have NO IDEA how to even approach doing this. My first...

    Pointers to BIOS, UEFI, booloader (GRUB?) tutorials?

    Still working on understanding these things, but wanted to drop a note that the book "How Linux Works" has a great chapter on booting that talks about GRUB, BIOS and UEFI. https://www.amazon.com/How-Linux-Works-Brian-Ward-dp-1718500408/dp/1718500408/ref=dp_ob_title_bk keith

    Pointers to BIOS, UEFI, booloader (GRUB?) tutorials?

    Hi all, I've been using Linux for years, installing it on all kinds of systems, but I've always been confused about these low level hardware attributes. I got to the point where I understood what BIOS was and how to do things like change boot order etc. Now I've had a few negative experiences...

    Organizing music files?

    I keep my music files on an external drive (optional, it's just what I do). On that drive I have a dir called 'mp3s'. It could be called music or 'wavs' or whatever....I chose 'mp3s' way back when. Within this dir are subdirs for each artist. Within each artist dir are album dirs, and within...

    Files recognized as gzip but not compressed

    This is just a guess, but you might want to verify: There's a possibility that the linux system THINKS that the files are gzip'd but that they are not. These .bam files may just 'look' like they are compressed. So, can you run a command to process one of these files in some on the linux system...

    Connectivity at first attempt

    Well that's a whole different set of potential problems then. I can't really speak to your configuration except in general terms, but the first place I'd check (and perhaps you already have) would be any logging on both the VM side and the Hypervisor side, for errors or anomalies in the...

    Connectivity at first attempt

    - check your network and hardware logs for errors - if you have a spare NIC, install it in the server in question This sounds like a hardware error of some kind. keith

    SOLVED - Error message in 'C' program

    "Not quite @khedger. That while is the termination condition for the do loop above it. It doesn't need a closing brace." See, I told you I wasn't much of a 'C' programmer! :cool:

    SOLVED - Error message in 'C' program

    You've got: } while (toupper(stillPlay) == 'Y'); return 0; } At the bottom of main() (and elsewhere in your code). I think the 'while' needs a closing '}' keith

    SOLVED - Error message in 'C' program

    I'm not an experienced C programmer, but it looks to me like you're missing a closing '}' for the getbet function. { printf("\n\nPlease enter a bet from 1-5 or "); printf("0 to quit the game.\n"); } } } <----- don't you need...

    SOLVED - Error message in 'C' program

    I can't scroll your 'code' example - did you upload an image? At the top of the text entry, on the far right, you'll see '...'. Select this, then '</> code' to insert code, then insert your actual code, not an image.... keith

    Check if background process is running or not

    do some testing manually: - start your background process from the command line - manually do the 'ps' and see if it shows up - if it does, then that's not the problem, if it doesn't then the background script is probably failing immediately upon execution if the process shows up as running...

    [SOLVED} Low disk space on “Filesystem root”, 0 bites remaining

    [SOLVED} Low disk space on “Filesystem root”, 0 bites remaining

    Yeah, I get that. But the discussion earlier was that the snap data was taking the space. I see all kinds of entries with 'snap' in them and I don't see any other filesystems. So, if you take everything that's listed OTHER than the entry for '/', and add up the space taken, it doesn't amount to...

    [SOLVED} Low disk space on “Filesystem root”, 0 bites remaining

    Okay, what am I missing? When I look at ALL of the entries for the snap stuff, it totals < 7gb. So where is the space being used?
