Re: Nvidia driver not loading if I'm faster logging in than it!

:? :? :? :? :? :? NOOOOOOOOOOO! The notification is back!! So nothing I have done has worked! The nvidia X server settings program doesn't work (not that I use it for anything). I can see the screen fine (which is very important, and watch videos). Blender can use the graphics card effectively (whic...

Re: Nvidia driver not loading if I'm faster logging in than it!

Editing the grub config file seems to work, at least after a couple of reboots. I will confirm it works in a week or so.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

Nope. Blacklisting the nouveua driver didn't work, at least the way I did it. :(

Re: Nvidia driver not loading if I'm faster logging in than it!

Thank you very much for your help. Yes, ctl + alt + backspace is just as good a solution as logging in and out. But just as inconvenient. I have finally tried blacklisting the nouveau driver, a solution I did not manage to do correctly in the past. I think I have done it correctly now following some...

Re: Nvidia driver not loading if I'm faster logging in than it!

Hello again. After several months, I switched over to ubuntu for a while to get rid of the video driver issues I was getting. But after some time I'm back with mint 20 again. I thought this issue might have been fixed but no. But it's different than before. Now I get this notification: https://i.ibb...

Re: Cheap CCTV and NVR system, isolate it from the internet, while allowing myself to access it.

Hi. I believe I do need two physical local networks because if I can connect to the internet from my local network, so could anything else. Even though I configured it not to. These cheap cameras are not reliable. I suspect, and I am probably right, that these little devices are used without the own...

Cheap CCTV and NVR system, isolate it from the internet, while allowing myself to access it.

Hello guys! So just fiddling with these cheap, and almost certainly hackable cctv ethernet cameras, and an nvr. The brand I've never heard of, but I have found it to be in a list of not recommended security cameras due to security issues in their firmware. But they were so cheap I thought I'd give t...

Hi there folks. I've been messing with audio over network. I am currently using jack, and I can succesfully connect using zita-njbridge across the internet.

There is nothing like spending a whole day trying to figure something out, asking for help on a forum, and then suddenly finding the solution by one's self. Silly me. Before I would do: ssh user@computerA -p 1234 I would get the permission denied error. I should have given it the identity informatio...

Re: UFW blocking dig and wget.

Solved!

Just solved it myself.

I added the rule with "ufw allow 53". My mistake. I should have used "ufw allow out 53".

Sorry about that.

Thank you altair4 for your answer. Does your solution imply the user's entire home folder is remote? My nas is meant for file sharing and personal data backup with rsync.
