Re: Rsync cron job

netsense, I apologize, my mistake here. Your rsync line is fine. I got thrown a bit with the redirection. For your consideration you might want to use the -log-file option, something like T=$(date "+%Y-%m-%d-%R:%S") L="backup-$T.log" rsync -aviuh --progress --delete-during --log-...

Re: Boot fails - please help - is my laptop a brick?

I have found with posts on the board that holding back those updates long term can eventually cause problems.

I update everything and have not yet experienced any issues.

I hope this works for you :wink:

Re: update issue

I don't have any clue at this time of what to do with that except maybe trying the 4.8.0-52-generic kernel.

I'm running that now on this machine,

The other suggestion would be to reinstall the nvidia driver.

Beyond that I'm at a total loss :?

Re: Boot fails - please help - is my laptop a brick?

You don't appear to be doing updates. The latest kernel is 4.4.0-78-generic.

I would suggest updating everything for lack of any brilliant ideas.

I don't get the line with NV_EXCLUDE_BUILD_MODULES=' ', but it looks like it's building your nvidia driver.

Re: Installing Linux application outside of the built in software manager in Mint 18.1

If you try installing a Debian distribution .deb package it probably will not accept it since Mint is based on Ubuntu. So a Ubuntu distribution .deb package will most likely work as long as its dependencies are satisfied. The advantage with .deb packages is the package manager tries to prevent you f...

Re: Installing Linux application outside of the built in software manager in Mint 18.1

Are you considering compiling source or installing a .deb package :?:

Installing a .deb package is somewhat safer in that the dependencies are checked whereas with source there are no checks.

There's always a risk installing software outside of the package manager.

Re: Rsync cron job

netsense, Did this work at one time :?: Your script is using sudo, but you can't respond when cron runs it :? It might be easier is you move the script to a script folder in your home, remove the sudo and setup a root crontab to run it. And I don't quite follow what sudo rsync -azv /etc /clonehome/c...
