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: Hardware lifespan? Software to monitor it?

Thanks for the information. Can this command be used for the other volumes and OS's such as NTFS or a Windows Multi-boot? E.G.: Linux is on sda3, the sda 1 and sda2 are a multi-boot or shared partition for Linux and Windows. Defrag Command: sudo e4defrag /dev/sda1 (Windows) sudo e4defrag /dev/sda2 (...

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.

Hey my 2p or 2 cents worth is NO VPN. The free ones give your data away. The paid ones don't give you full bandwidth when required. They're all crap.

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.

Re: Making a choice apply to all folders? LibreOffice extensions?

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?

Re: LMMS not showing up in Menu.

Not in usr/bin

Nemo search bar? In the Menu at the top? Nothing. Sound and Video, nothing.

Maybe they have not updated something with a Level 4 update to the kernel?

It seems to be a security feature, but I am concerned about being locked out of my computer. Does this happen if I do ...
