Ich dachte tuxedo bietet dafür Support an? Das wäre für mich der Grund gewesen darüber nachzudenken…

Displaylink ist allgemein etwas doof einzurichten, das stimmt. Dafür macht es danach weniger Probleme. Mein externer USB monitor läuft beispielsweise seit 2 jahren unter Arch besser als unter Windows. Da zickt es nach jedem Update.


Why can't I assign a static # in a # network config for a host? It won't take the mac in the config, it works for IPv4 it seems, but not for IPv6?

# #
I have to use the id parameter somehow, not the mac parameter. I need to look into it again.
Not working as well, it just assigns another IPv6 out of the DHCPv6 Range and not the one I specified.


I got a # # # with # that suddenly (after 1-2 weeks) lags IPv6 communication. I am unable to find the problem, but a reboot solves it.

It's a # exit server.

Any ideas? Tipps?
Linux and IPv6 in a nutshell :/
@:parabola:𝚜𝚎𝚕𝚎𝚊:trisquel: not sure what that is supposed to mean, but in general I don't habe problems with # in #, # or #, I still think it is the hosters setup which requires me to use the gateway fe80::1, which might not be the correct way to do. Also I think that many people on support don't know much more about ipv6 than the average Joe.


Well, this time I really don't know how to solve this problem, seems the package is really signed with an old key of Christian Hesse?

@Michele Leonardo I did, the key is not the one on the list for Arch Linux, the key is available or very few servers, maybe not yet well synchronized, maybe Christian Hesse really has a new key. I'll try again later today I think.


In 2020 is is OK to still use Legacy instead of UEFI to setup # #?

The # bios refused to boot from the Arch USB key.
OK, in Legacy the Arch USB boot stick didn't work either, so I will stick with Mint on that machine, even though I really like Arch I do not want to waste more time on that. I wonder why the Linux Mint stick worked and the Arch stick didn't....
If I remember correctly, I think I saw instructions on the Arch wiki for installing Arch from within another linux setup. That might allow you to bootstrap Arch from your Mint USB. I did something similar to install Gentoo a year ago.


Seems that in the # # 19.x installer you can not format a drive with LUKS LVM with the # inside the LUKS.

Is it really not possible or am I just doing it wrong?

Sana reshared this.

Tried around a bit more, it is worse, if you proceed with the encrypted option you can not even create a swap partition...

So I see I will have to fix this manually after the setup, because no swap means you can not #.
And learned something new, default for Mint is to use a swapfile, not sure if dynamically sized or 0kb default.


In my .zshrc I have some key binding for HOME, but it does not work, now I wonder how to escape it to make ich work?

bindkey '^[[C' forward-char
bindkey "^[[H" beginning-of-line

Also wonder why there is ' and " and not the same quote. I got this from here, so I just trying to improve it.

Any tips welcome.

Wenn da ja steht, wurde ich es machen.

Besser ala auf den Müll schmeißen
@Mario P. ja, startet problemlos, nur die initiale Installation war nicht ganz einfach, man muss zwei Kernelparameter setzen. Läuft problemlos soweit zu erkennen.
Dann sollte es doch kein Problem sein.
Zumindest wenn ich das was ich hier gerade an Digitalen Fähigkeiten sehe, als Maßstab sehe.


Can someone point me in the right direction for some # information, I set up # like described here:

It works, but I would like to play a bit more.

Now I would like to use this setup here:

So I need to clean up everything from the old setup, the images, volumes and all the data.

Not sure how to do this, but I would really like to have a clean start.

So I need to understand how to do this and also I would like to understand where docker stores data, I found that some data is stored in /var/lib/docker and some is in the location of my compose file.

For the new setup I also need to add a mount point for /var/lib/docker on my RAID drive.

Any suggestions welcome, also point me at helpful webpages, but firstly I need to generally understand the concept of how to spin up a new docker set and how to reverse/remove it after I do not need it anymore.

# #

Alex reshared this.

Modfiy either the docker image or better adjust the docker compose file to your needs. You would need to adjust the volumes,
@Christoph S no, the point is I want to remove all thing the docker image created, all locally stored data and all volumes, so I am trying to figure out if there is a supposed way to do so. I could check which volumes it created and then remove the folders in /var/lib/docker/volumes, but I also wonder is there is more to do.


I have a # installation and want to perform a #, which works fine so far.

New ,I want to take a # # of /, which is no problem as well. But then it gets a bit tricky, I wanna do the backup of that snapshot, which is mounted in /snapshot and would like to have # # only see the /snapshot as the file systems root. The system ist # # and I wonder if I could just issue a

chroot /snapshot sh -c "cd ~;"

and have all paths in the backup patterns starting as if /snapshot was the root of the file system?

Any ideas?

Is there an easier solution like telling borg backup that /snapshot is its root or so?

chilcreek reshared this.

@Thomas Waldmann not here, I tried that already, well I tried that with the existing repo and don't see that creating a new one could change it.
I am pretty sure that works.

I tried rclone yesterday, but the connection to Onedrive didn't work, it told me that my MS Account was not valid, it's a company account, so the page rclone sends one to maybe has to be different for Onedrive login.


Why is an ISO of a USB memory stick of 64 GB, with 1 GB data on it, 55 GB in size?
Even when using # with sparse parameter and when writing /dev/zero to a file on the stick and rm the file before iso creation.
#dd #linux

3 people reshared this

That's btw why people use cpio or tar for backups and not dd ;)
@hackbyte Nice point about the backups.

In my head DD mean "Direct to Device".

It may simply be that the USB stick needs to be reformatted.
Create a partition that is just slightly larger than the raw ISO. ???

i.e. The ISO is actually only taking up X space but it is on a partition that is XXX size. (which now has no original file system as it was destroyed by the dd run.)
dd reports quantities at the end of a run (unless its told to shut up)


I am considering to get a new # in the #, some place close to #, I have a # server at the moment and will most likely get one again. Thinking about a EX52-NVMe, a AX51-NVMe or a EX62-NVMe.

Thanks for any information, special prices, alternatives that might be better than Hetzner value money wise.
now Hetzner can not deliver new servers because of # Virus. :-(
Does it infect their network ? :thaenkin:
@butterflyoffire well I guess the answer is their supply of servers is halted because of Chinese Newyear and now because of Corona, no stock, jit, no product to sell anymore.
My mail host on Hetzner ist still alive. 😲


Freshly installed # # server lts, installed docker, next step is to install # compose.

What should I know if I never setup docker or nextcloud to accomplish my goal?
I always recommend Docker-Compose ( and personally I'd use Caddy ( instead of Nginx w/ ACME because it's simpler and written in Go.
Have you tried the open source Univention Corporate Server UCS based on Debian to install Nextcloud, etc.


Und sobald ich jetzt rausfinde, wie ich einen # in # auf einem Webserver spiegeln kann, dann könnt ich auch live die # sehen. Scheint aber teuere Software zu benötigen, dafür werde ich das Geld nicht ausgeben.
Laeuft der stream ueber RTSP dann duerfte es ziemlich einfach sein - ohne teurere Software.
@fuerstin ja, ist ein rtsp stream, ich hab bisher nur software und Dienste gefunden die Geld kosten. Wenn du nen Tipp hast, gerne her damit.
Ich weiss nicht was du willst. Aber ich vermute in einer web page kann einfach im video tag source mit rtsp eingegeben werden e.g.

I have some small thing I would like to do with it, there is a folder of pictures with one picture added each minute, these pictures I want to scan, remove old ones and then show the latest in large size and the others in kind of a gallery. Actually there is two folders with pictures, so I would love to somehow show the latest picture from both folders and so on. For the beginning I just want to have one php page, i.e. index.php.

I got some questions:
1. Can this be done with PHP?
2. As a absolute beginner, how reasonable is it to get this done?
3. Any tips on how to start learning?
4. Which # editor should I use for the beginning?

@Andreas vom Zwenkauer See nein, kein Problem, recht einfach, das war nicht der Zweck meines Postings. HTML ist so zienlich das einzige was ich mal gelernt hab und zusammenschustern kann, so runter tippen eher nicht, aber ich verstehe es.
A static HTML page pointing to a local database hosting the two files should do it. The Pi can do SFTP, yes? So, have a script that updates the db via SFTP on a schedule so whomever looks at the website will see the photo.
Hmm, I'm seeing a downside though - the viewer would have to refresh the webpage to see the updated photo. I'm curious to know if you find a good solution.
Best of luck!

How can I take a RTSP video stream, "forward" it and then make it accessible for viewers? I want to host a webcam stream on a server, the webcam is in a LAN where I prefer to keep the firewall closed, but I can use a small computer there to forward the stream to my public server.

So it would be:
(Webcam) --> (Small home server) --> (Firewall) --> (Server) --> redistribution of stream to whom ever wants to watch it.

All stuff used should be # # / # software.
And you're certain you're not actually publically asking for help in pirating drm-protected content, aren't you?
@Birne Helene no, it will be a camera broadcasting chicks on bars. :-D
Mit VLC müsste das gehen, Google mal nach forward rtsp stream


Is there a # device, a # like device, that connects to the # by # and provides 2 # (or similar), couple of USB 3 a 1GBit/s Ethernet and sound output and input? There is such things for Windows and with some restrictions for Apple OS X, but I am not sure if there is anything like that for #.

2 people reshared this

I understand the desire, I went through four devices before settling on the unit I have at work. Before that I was hooking up a number of cables and connectors every day at the office. The first unit you posted from Amazon looks like a good choice. If it has MacOS drivers then there's moderate hope that it does or can have actual Linux drivers and support. My assumption is that there are only a handful of host controllers in use on the mass-market USB-C docks, so if there's a driver for two or three then you get access to the bulk of the options. It does still look like that one could be a little strange with the extended desktop versus mirror mode for non-Windows, but that was what I found across all of the USB-C units as well.
There is the docking station for lenovo's computer. I use that for my tablet.
There are not 2 hdmi but display port.
I use adaptors for the hdmi.
All that devices works with display link drivers for Linux.

Choppa2 reshared this.

lighttpd is pretty small and convenient, yet still has quite a few features that can be enabled as modules like apache. It has a pretty good security record. I see it a lot on embedded linux devices, but I also install it myself on workstations when I want a web server for local development because it's convenient. Also have good experience with it on light usage public webpages, but I'd probably pick nginx for something with high enough volume for performance to matter.
Very much so. Magento is still a pig though. But there's no web server that's going to change that


Is there is way to have a # (locally without netboot) make a reinstall of let's say # # each boot? Preferably from the local HDD and again to the local HDD?

2 people reshared this

@utzer isn't it what live images do?
@Alexander yes, kind of, but how to make sure the HDD partition with the live system is not manipulated?
You can run Tinycore of a ramdisk and compile the kernel without sata driver and module loading.

Just learned about the locker "slock" which works with # and others. I just locks the screen and shows a black screen, then on the black screen you can type your password, which will cause it to show a different color when typing. That is the purest # application I ever saw.
Huh? I don't know about a special xserver for i3.
i3lock just works under my Debian-based desktop system.
@★ Miller the Defondor i3 is a desktop environment as KDE, Xfce or Mate. Complex terminalogy as I just figured out. Never mind the details.
No problem with i3lock. I use it with the MATE desktop environment. There are no hard dependencies i know


Hibernation still isn't a thing with # #. I tried and it just did a fresh boot. :-/
Do you have enough swap space? Hibernation is done by moving all RAM contents into swap IIRC.
@0mega ☠ it was another problem, this was somehow missing from the setup, I will try that solution on my # Mint machine in the next days I think. That would make life much easier. One thing after that will be to move the swap into the luks, maybe by using a Swap file (easier that rearranging the partitions).

@hackbyte I think I have to use borg, otherwise I am not sure how to decrypt the backup, borg stores encrypted backups on some SSH server.
