Re: Run command on startup

Cause that's permanent. I don't want it permanently disabled. I just want it off until I have an important Skype or something similar. Issuing the command all the time after boot up is getting annoying. So whenever I really need it, I just
sudo modprobe uvcvideo

Run command on startup

I want to run the command on startup:
sudo rmmod uvcvideo
How should I do this? Put it in the boot sequence or place it profile.d? What should I do, how can I get this command to run on boot up?

traceroute -T??

Using traceroute with the -T switch to send out tcp packets disappeared. Where did it go? Did mint take it out? It's not even listed in the help for traceroute. Check the image.

Re: Disabling webcam

Sorry if my reply was a bit confusing or wasn't clear. sudo modprobe -r uvcvideo does work, but since I found sudo modprobe uvcvideo to turn it back on, the command that was paired with it for the convenient toggle was sudo rmmod uvcvideo so I'm sticking with that. But yes, the sudo modprobe -r uvcv...

Re: Disabling webcam

Okay, done. I found it. This command will turn the webcam off:
sudo rmmod uvcvideo
and this will turn it on again
sudo modprobe uvcvideo

Re: Disabling webcam

Okay I thought it would have worked but it didn't. Launching Cheese showed no video. I am looking for some commands to quickly turn on and turn off my webcam.

Re: Disabling webcam

This works and works well. Now what is the command to quickly reverse it? So I have disabled my webcam but now I want to quickly enable it. How do I do that?

Re: Primary vs Extended

I've encountered an issue. When I installed Tessa, I encrypted my disk. I can't create a partition from the disk when booting the CentOS usb media. Even if I boto up Tessa, using gparted, I still can't create a partition. What should I do? How can I partition the disk into 2 even though it's encrypt...

Re: Primary vs Extended

Yep. And I have to partition using boot media? Or will gdisk partition for me while the OS is running? As long as the disk is not in use, then you can manage it from your running OS. I have only one disk, 1TB disk, so yeah, it's in use. Tessa is installed to this 1TB disk. It's this 1TB disk I want...

Re: Primary vs Extended

I believe fdisk is used for MBR partitioning and gdisk for GPT. I will have a look at the link.

Re: Primary vs Extended

So are you saying to use the gdisk tool to cut the other half? Then run the CentOS usb boot media?

Primary vs Extended

I want to get some practice in preparation for my LPIC1 exam. I have Tessa installed on a 1TB hard drive. I want to cut half off for a CentOS installation and so have a dual boot, Mint and CentOS. I want to use command line tools, so looking at fdisk or parted. When creating partitions you're going ...

Re: Install CentOS 7 alongside Mint

That sounds great. So I can use gparted and shrink my existing 1 TB and then do the second install? That's it?

Install CentOS 7 alongside Mint

I already have Mint up and running on a physical machine. How can I now install CentOS7 using a dual boot? Do I have to start all over and partition my hdd or can I do it on the fly? I already encrypted my drive with lvm. Looking for some advice.
