*IGNORE* - Notes on 20.3 Install Fixes

Please ignore. This is my work in progress from wiping previous dual boot Windows 10 / Mint 20.2 and replacing Windows 10 with Windows 11; but as a Virtual Client under KVM (Thus, wiping everything and starting over with Mint 20.3). Install from Live USB Boot to BIOS Wipe EFI (Won't work now anyway,...

IMHO, if you are going to use catfish, you need to have doodle.

Re: [SOLVED] - Fix for DNS Security Regression - systemd-resolve local caching stub resolver - NXDOMAIN Bug

It should be noted that even after this fix, there are background issues relative to embedded functions reaching out to the internet and their associated failures because of Stub Resolver ... which is more of a stub and not so much of a resolver. I'm not wild about finding these (I think of it as ma...

Just a small note.

In a "Clean build" scenario, let's assume a few things. 1) You have updated your router's firmware to the latest build (Note, there are gaps in certain router firmware versions where you may not have all of the latest keys. This step is critical. 2) Your Router is DNSSEC compliant and you ...

Well.. that's where things get complicated depending on the additional options you employ. Recreating the file from an 18.x build (from what I read) does eliminate the dependency issue; however, it doesn't necessary fix the overall issue in that in addition to it existing as a function and relying o...

Well... All I can say is be grateful that this one isn't filling up your error logs. I found it pretty damn annoying (and it is widespread).

If you have updated your Operating System (Versus installing clean), chances are excellent that you actually have the file in question left over from your previous version in which case you won't get the errors. I could have just as easily copied the file from snap or from a previous Mint/Ubuntu ver...

Since around 2012 there have been discussions about removing the function that is responsible for these errors spamming your error logs. For example, See: https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=674857#25 In a nutshell, this entire function is pointless unless you are managing a system ove...
