Re: Getting OpenVPN Files

I made a directory /etc/openvpn You can do it in ~/.openvpn also I hear. I do it as root, but first put your .ovpn file(s) in /etc/openvpn/ chown to root You can ...

Re: Rsync - Luckybackups - FWbackups - SSH Troubles

ssh works good Then you can work on your rsync script and try it out. I could be wrong, but I am not sure that you need rsync on the host machine Or possibly you could let grsync (a light-weight gui for rysnc) do the setting up of the script for a trial run. rsync is a robust tool especially if you ...

Re: LMDE stable and up to date packages?

I'm running mate on lmde. I am not really sure that changing your /etc/apt/sources.list.d/official-package-repositoiries.list from testing to unstable will bump you up that much. On a debian unstable box via "aptitude show cinnamon" I get Version: 2.2.16-5 - whereas on LMDE <<testing>> "aptitude sho...

Re: LMDE logging sytemd journald.conf

Well actually aptitude shows that I do have systemd installed on LMDE. My belief is that it just still uses the sysvint style of logging. If anyone does have any helpful hints as to how to cut the cord on logging via sysvinit I would appreciate. I do wish to become proficient at LMDE because I am tr...

Re: Partitions for LMDE

I am not going to touch the rolling aspect. You can just have a root partition (which will include /home) and a separate /swap partition. I have preferred using a separate /home partition for about 15 years and like that and have not been hurt by that decision. If you give 10gb to / (which will then...

Re: Post your .bashrc and screenshot

One can always take a peek at /etc/skel/ where a vanilla .bashrc resides. Lots of other skeleton or old originals reside in /skel It can be a friend to you if things get mangled. Other forums elsewhere have pages and pages of .bashrc's (I do run various Debian derivatives - I do get around) Look, le...

Re: Empty space cleaner for LMDE

I'm sorry, but some of the answers here are a little light on facts. For some systems, the empty space has had numerous files on it. rm merely releases the inodes, the data is still there. If you want to more securely remove the data of selected files when you get rid of them, one can always set up ...

LMDE logging sytemd journald.conf

In a new install of LMDE I am having problems enabling logging via journctl I have it functioning on another box with debian sid. I have edited /var/log/ and appended a directory named "journal" as per man journald.conf. I did this as /etc/systemd/journal.conf is at default Storage=auto. I booted an...
