Re: Cloud backup recommendations

I use pcloud for files up to 10GB, it's multi platform, and for large cloud based, I got an S3 account at Amazon, and use a program called Duplicati to back up to it. I have 256 bit AES encryption to hide my muffin recipes from prying eyes.

Re: Traktor Dj or Recordbox software on linux

I DJ all the time with MIXXX. It has an appearance similar to Traktor, and does just fine.

Re: Screen tearing

I would say the issue is the APU, in this case. It is VERY weak, and Linux, unlike Windows, uses a lot of CPU to play video. I would try to change the APU. Anything like an A8-9600 would do a fine job, if it's am AM3 board, find something similar.

Re: Cannot Upgrade Google Chrome in Maya

I like 17, but with the newest iteration of Mint about to drop, I want to wait till I have something that is more "current" so Google doesn't do this to me in two more years.

Does anyone know how to bypass the "Update Flash" notification in Opera? Opera's forums show a total disconnect.

Cannot Upgrade Google Chrome in Maya [SOLVED]

When I launch Chrome, I get a message that says "This computer will no longer receive Google Chrome updates because this Linux system is no longer supported." I am trying to get pepperflash to work in my Opera browser. It seems to depend on Chrome. Can't use Firefox due to Flash being stuck at 11.2....

Re: How to copy my DVD collection

Ditto. I used K9 Copy in Mint 10, and Thoggen in Mint 13. Now on 17 I can get neither. What can be used to do a DVD-to-ISO rip?

What wireless laptop adapters work with Mint 13? [UNSOLVED]

I have gone through a box of adapters, researching many that don't work. So I thought it might be a good idea to ask which ones the community has had good luck with. I tried searching the forums, but only came up with problems.

I did format it when I created the RAID array initially. Here's the output of the fdisk command: WARNING: GPT (GUID Partition Table) detected on '/dev/sda'! The util fdisk doesn't support GPT.

Re: Need to recover a RAID 1 Array after reformat

"So you can boot, but the linux partition image restore was pre-raid setup." That is correct. "Did you install mdadm " Yes. "and try a scan or assemble" I have not done that. I know I can search how to do it, however, my life is on those drives, and I didn't want to destroy my life/data by using a g...

Re: Need to recover a RAID 1 Array after reformat

This is not a booting issue. The other two drives are separate, and have nothing to do with the operating system. They just don't show up as a RAID array after I recovered an old image-based backup of the OS, pre-raid.

I gave you the wrong idea...I only had a backup of the root partition. I DID think I could access at least one of my drives. I was wrong. I still have my life suspended...HALP!

Re: Need to recover a RAID 1 Array after reformat

IThe drives are two separate drives, not the operating system. I recovered from an older acronis image. While it should be obvious, I didn't remember that the RAID setup was inthe root partition. Once I get this up and running, I'm going to dump the 3TB of data and undo the RAID.
