Re: Open port in firewall to just one drive?

What kind of access. For read-only HTTP works great, a lightweight HTTP daemon as webfs will do. For read-write there is FTP, NFSv4, so on.

If you wanted to know why you could have looked at Xorg log.

Possible hard drive failure. Have you run smartctl test on your drives.

The only tool you need to set up NFS is a text editor.

I still think it is hardware, do you have some liveCD/USB you can boot and check out if the problem is still there?

Re: On vs, off - Power

Computers are powered via alternating current which is converted to direct current by means of a step-down transformer, directional diodes, a smoothing capacitor and a current flow limiter such as a Zener diode. Actually, most equipment uses switching power supplies these days. And many of them sta...

Re: Format new 2nd Hard Drive

I suggest you do not use NTFS for a drive attached to a Linux machine.

To format it for Linux:

Code: Select all

sudo -i
mkfs.ext4 /dev/sdb

Re: On vs, off - Power

Yes, nobody knows, but probability of failure is greater during power on. Nope. As long as it runs it will keep going. Once the caps are really dried out the next time you power it off it won't come up any more. I should say again: " probability of failure is greater during power on" I do not agree...

AHHH incandescents. I use LED exclusively except in the bathroom. The only heat there is from a 300watt flood light that is used for heating. I pick them up in a hardware store for farm equipment. They are used for heating chicken brooders, for the eggs to hatch. Unfortunately, when they quit makin...

Re: Rescue Date : Broken external hard disc

No tool can work on a drive that is not detected by kernel. No sdX device - no drive to work with. I suggest you open the enclosure and see if anything is visibly broken and maybe can be fixed.

Re: How to "dist-upgrade" the kernel in LM18?

Actually, I think was wrong. The simple fact is Mint is not for me, so I shouldn't be here complaining. Sorry, folks. Mint is a great distro and certainly has wide userbase, deservedly. It's me, I find it difficult to configure and maintain. I registered here because I had a custom keymap problem, a...

Re: How to "dist-upgrade" the kernel in LM18?

Curious question (and yes, I'm just curious), why do some people avoid GUI solutions that Mint offers like those solutions have leprosy?
Because doing it from CLI is easy. Just SSH into computer you need to upgrade and do it. Making remote X connections is more hassle.

Re: nfs parameters in Mint Mate 18

I never had so much trouble configure simple things as I do with Mint. I had to replace my wife's computer, our home was flooded and we lost practically everything.
