Re: How safe is it to upgrade D-Bus?

I've never encountered a problem with dbus even though it is quite complicated - several instances of it are processing constantly as you can see with pgrep -a dbus There's no need to test it since it invokes your desktop session so if your session starts that would indicate that everything is A-OK.

Re: history

Open your ~/.bashrc file - there should be a line HISTSIZE=1000

You might have to adjust your HISTFILESIZE too.

Re: Boot failure [solved but why?]

That's strange given that the errors appear to be graphics related :?

You might want to try the nofail mount option in your fstab entry and see if that happens again with the 1TB HDD removed.

Re: can't boot, encrypted drive - how to recover data ?

Did you mount /dev :?:

I don't see that in your terminal paste :?

The first mount under # Establish a proper chroot environment is
sudo mount -o bind /dev /mnt/dev

You'll have to exit the chroot and start over.

Re: Made changes to /etc/cups/cupsd.conf need a clean/new file

The cupsd post installation copies the file /usr/share/cups/cupsd.conf.default to /etc/cups/cupsd.conf so all you need to do is

sudo cp /usr/share/cups/cupsd.conf.default /etc/cups/cupsd.conf :wink:

If there wasn't a patch for that problem I would have recommended blacklisting that module until it was addressed, but I see you have things under control :wink:

Re: Solved - Monitoring Data Usage

Check the file names in /var/lib/vnstat/ and use vnstat -d -i enp0s31f6 which is my interface name - so change enp0s31f6 to your interfaces name.
