Re: Linux and Floppy B drives?

Thanks for the reply rene. I just want to be clear about the controllers and disk drives connected. One controller for a 3.5" or 5.25" disk drive can handle 2 disk drives connected? As you said and as some of the information I have read has said, 2 controllers and 2 disk drives for each, that is 4 d...

Re: Linux and Floppy B drives?

rene - Yes it is a 5.25" drive (https://www.biocomp.net/o30780.htm) that I am asking about. It seems that the Floppy A 3.5" cable is not the same as the one required for a 5.25" disk drive. I looked that up already. Unless there is a way to change that. So it is possible for my motherboard to have a...

Re: Linux and Floppy B drives?

Pieere - I do not have a Floppy B with USB connection. I have seen some setups online, but I cannot find where to buy them.

Floppy A is internal, not USB.

Re: Linux and Floppy B drives?

I am not finding Floppy B disk - USB connectors online.

Are they all custom made?

My Floppy A drive is recognized and can be used.

Re: Linux and Floppy B drives?

Pierre, will the Flobby B drives and disks work and be recognized? Where is the problem, the Linux OS, the virtual machine or the old system and how the hardware is connected or how the virtual machine runs the old OS in Linux?

Re: Linux and Floppy B drives?

I thought about getting old hardware and putting a version of Linux on there, it probably has to be xfce or something similar because of the limits of the system. If using Linux I am unsure if virtual machines with old versions of Windows or Mac OS will work? Does 32-bit or 64-bit affect anything? H...

[SOLVED] Linux and Floppy B drives?

Hello,

How does Linux Mint or other types handle Floppy B disks, drives and hardware?

Some people asked me about getting data off of the old disks, there are some old computers. But nothing like a USB2 connector for a newer OS or hardware.

Thanks.

Re: Hardware lifespan? Software to monitor it?

The temperatures are good at startup and after running for two days. I am not currently video rendering for two days or more at 100% CPU and everything else maxed out. I have used Windows tools. Not used the Linux commands yet. Is there a difference? Can Linux give more information most of the time?...

Re: Can Linux be used for remote monitoring?

Thank you for the replies. Right now there is no need for 24/7. Being able to turn on the system remotely or if it takes a picture like a GoPro when an animal walks toward the camera. Desktop, laptop, phone and tablet access is a good thing. I will look at ZoneMinder. With something like Ubuntu Serv...

Hardware lifespan? Software to monitor it?

Hi, I was using Defraggler to de-fragment some HDD's. I did not do this through Linux, I was using Windows. I noticed that in a tab that had information about each HDD in the desktop, it said the HDD's have been on for approximately over a year. Over 365 days, not even a year and a half. These HDD's...

Re: Can Linux be used for remote monitoring?

Thanks for the reply.

Is UbuntuServer the only one? Is it more designed for that type of thing?

Can Linux Mint Cinnamon or Mate or xfce do it? Is there a program?

Can Linux be used for remote monitoring?

Hello,

I am not sure where I should post this. I was wondering if Linux can be used for remote monitoring?

Security systems, or cameras and taking photos? I wanted to setup a camera to see if a skunk or rabbit was digging up a backyard. I would prefer to not use Windows.

Thank you.

Can SWAP be resized if more RAM is added?

Hello,

If more RAM is added to a desktop or laptop, can the SWAP area be resized? Is this useful or needed? Using SSD's or HHD's?

Linux Mint Cinnamon 64-bit.

Thanks.

Thank you Cosmo.

Can the processes for setting folder options be different with each distribution of Linux? And each desktop environment? So XFCE is different than Cinnamon? Or Antergos?
