    Timeshift & Similar Solutions - Safeguard & Recover Your Linux

    @wizardfromoz Hi Wizard, Yes, all your instructions went well and we did it ! :) Timeshift is once again in working order, tried to make a new backup, restored the backup after changing something on my system and erased an already pre-made backup from the list. No errors, no crashes ! ;)...

    [SOLVED] Kinetic Kudu - Possible Problems With Timeshift GUI

    Exactly, that's the reason I keep Debian on my system, as backup to start from in case Manjaro goes south after a update ! :) Both are using the same data-set (as in personal documents, email, music, video's) and both are taking backups to different locations. I think I'm covered against the...

    [SOLVED] Kinetic Kudu - Possible Problems With Timeshift GUI

    Hallo Wiz, thanks for your efforts, no rush though as Manjaro is actually my main OS. I'm not sure I could install a Ubuntu ppa onto Debian without degrading to an debian-frankenstein system ;-) or maybe I could get a bunch of dependency errors while trying to install the timeshift.deb file...

    [SOLVED] Kinetic Kudu - Possible Problems With Timeshift GUI

    Sorry for the late reply, I have been ill last week, feeling better now. The new timeshift version we received in Manjaro unstable a while ago seems OK, is now in Testing repo and will soon land in stable. But I'm wondering why Debian unstable/sid still made no effort to address this problem. My...

    Help with dual booting problem (win11 and PopOS) No windows boot is possible.

    The timeout of your efibootmanager is only 1 second ? Could you try to change that to some longer period, like 10 seconds ? Maybe the time of the bootmenu is too short to show on your display....

    My system sometimes freezes for up to a minute - ways to diagnose or even solutions? (Lenovo T15g G2, Debian 12)

    Another idea, if you open a konsole and start openttd on the CLI, do you see any (error) messages after start of the game ? Cheers, Eddy

    My system sometimes freezes for up to a minute - ways to diagnose or even solutions? (Lenovo T15g G2, Debian 12)

    I'm still not sure what's going on with your kwin and the 'bad window', I don't get those lines when I start openTTD (yes, I'm also a fan of this great game) :) . Searches on google reveiled no usefull info either. Display: x11 server: X.org v: 1.21.1.4 with: Xwayland v: 22.1.3 compositor...

    My system sometimes freezes for up to a minute - ways to diagnose or even solutions? (Lenovo T15g G2, Debian 12)

    Without any logs or system info, it will be hard to tell. Can you publish the output of inxi -Fxxz here please. Also check sudo journalctl -b 0 for any segfaults occuring during the freeze ? Thanks...

    Linux on 2013 Mac Desktop - Wish Me Luck

    Installing Linux on an iMac should not cause any problems, because they are carefully assembled for unix, on which MacOS was built upon via Darwin. I have installed several linux distros on my iMac 2015, only a few of them gave me a headache ! ;-)

    Unable open certain web pages while using Linux PC (SOLVED)

    Is the way you connect to your ISP's webspace using the FTP protocol (url beginning with ftp://) ? In that case I suspect something is wrong with the FTP port setting or the security protocol you are using to connect. Try with an dedicated ftp-client instead to see you are able to connect ? Post...

    Call out to a 502

    I think the most cost-effective way for dealing with any "over-loaded" Win10 computer is to backup its data, format the harddrive and simply reinstall the whole thing from scratch ! Saves you a lot of time trying to figure out what gets loaded and saves you lots of frustrations once you'll...

    Linux on iMac reboots instead of shutdown

    Using shutdown -h or -H does not make any difference, I'm affraid... :-( I never tried de Magic SysRq REISUB, I just use the power button if Debian hangs itself ;-) Cheers, Eddy

    Linux on iMac reboots instead of shutdown

    I seem to have the year of manufacturing wrong, sorry, it is an iMac (Retina 4K, 21.5-inch, Late 2015). Amazing how fast the years are passing, doesn't it ? Cheers, Eddy

    Linux on iMac reboots instead of shutdown

    Sorry for the late reply, but yes, it IS a typical problem with Intel based iMac computers. Mine is a late 2016 machine and yes, I too have to push the power button for 5 seconds to be able to power down. I first give the shutdown -h now command in linux, wait until all shutdown text stops...
