Re: How do you remember bits of sudo code?

For me, I use repetition and documentation, if that doesn't work, Bork the machine, and then remember what NOT to do! :roll: :lol:

Re: I want to be a linux guru in months

Been using Linux here for almost a decade, and still don't count myself as a guru - hell if I need a webserver I still look for instructions via the Google LOL (and I web host for a living!!) If you get stuck, google is your friend - my only piece of advice though is when copy/pasting commands in th...

Re: "In the old days we...."

Back in the day.... in 1983, my school was one that was at the forefront of IT (bear in mind I was 7), we had ONE BBC Micro to the WHOLE school. I was forever on it, not because I was hogging it, I was the IT guy teaching the other kids how to use it! Move on 33 years later, and I was teaching IT to...

Re: Which scripts do you use often?

Here is mine, which backs up my internal drives to external ones using RSync. It automatically adds updates and removes all files/folders so every day I 'should' have a 1:1 backup! #!/bin/bash # Backup script for External HDD # Misc Backup rsync -r -t -p -o -v --progress --delete --ignore-existing -...

Re: Next step up from a newbie mistake or ???

Hi, I would suggest in removing the dual boot from the EFI drive, how to do this can be found here - https://askubuntu.com/questions/429610/uninstall-grub-and-use-windows-bootloader then I'd suggest reformatting the LM drive, and reinstall. I did have the occasion where I managed to screw up the EFI...

Re: RAMs are coming

It should just be a case of add the RAM on the motherboard and boot up.

The RAM is usually 'found' at the BIOS level, and the Operating System 'sees it' after POST, so Mint should find it no issue.

Re: Random thoughts on distro hopping

I remember trying to find the right distro for my first web server,I tried Debian, Fedora, CentOS, then i settled on Ubuntu, it was the easiest one to learn, and the one I stuck with for a server. For my laptop and PC, I only went from Ubuntu to Linux Mint. So, for my experience I was distro hopping...

Re: When did you come to Linux?

I came to Linux when I was asked to build a web server, before I was using a WIMP server (Windows/IIS/MySQL/PHP), but knew that a industry web-server needed a LAMP server. This was well over a decade ago, but it did mean that I was using the terminal from the get go, and it took a lot of trial and e...
