    Creating exactly 'n' children of a parent in UNIX.

    The first fork is to two processes, but for a linux program the number of processes it forks into depends on the program and the number of times the fork() system call is actually called. The fork() call creates a new process which copies the calling process which results in the new process...

    Need assistance booting onto USB stick with Linux distro

    It would be wise to verify the usb you write with the relevant means, something like a sha512sum. Not all writers for isos are the same. The first thing it may be useful to check is the size in bytes of the original iso compared to the one that is written to the usb. They need to be identical...

    POPOS sound driver

    S Since the driver is sof-audio-pci-intel-apl, then the system will need the intel SOF firmware installed as well. That firmware is in the package called: firmware-sof-signed, in most debian based distros, but probably check in popOS and install the popOS version if it's not already installed...

    My suspicions about hardware are aroused by the messages: ... Link Failure ... ... has been repaired ... ... Link Failure ... It fits the scenario of a contact failing, say from heat expansion which removes contact ("Link Failure", then cooling allowing the contact to be made ("been...

    Solved Screen Tearing Issue on Lenovo X200 Laptop

    Aha, sudo needs the command of the text editor, for example if using the text editor nano: sudo nano 10-tearfree.conf then the file will be created as root for you to edit. You need to have sudo working on your computer and be able to use it. Otherwise you can use your root account directly...

    Solved Screen Tearing Issue on Lenovo X200 Laptop

    Yes you need to use a text editor like nano or vim, which seem to be the most popular ones. You need to use it as root and create the file. The simplest approach is to navigate to the /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ directory inside a terminal, become root by using "sudo" or "su" and then write the file...

    Need help to get more space on home directory

    These questions come to mind: What tool was used to resize the partition? Can you show details of the full partitioning on the disk, either from the command line output, or from the graphical output of a program like Gparted? What did you actually do? What commands did you execute? Are you dual...

    No sound in Ubuntu after installation - Tried a lot - nothing worked, please help. Desparate!

    You have found fedora is more successful with the sound system, but it's still unsatisfactory. That is progress of a sort. This is a speculation: fedora is more up to date than ubuntu, and the other systems you've tried, which may mean that it's the newer kernel that is more readily able to deal...

    Adding & Removing Fonts with Font Manager

    The noto fonts are usually in /usr/share/fonts/truetype/noto/. The "room" they take is: [[email protected] /usr/share/fonts/truetype/noto]$ du -sh . 377M Whether 377MB is "much room" I guess is a matter of opinion. The wiz's command in post #6 should delete the noto fonts if that's what you'd like to...

    Debian update failed

    If you don't understand the info on the links, then another alternative is to reinstall, and presumably, since the machine did work before, that it continues to. Perhaps just stay on debian stable where the updating is mainly just security matters and bug fixes. Currently debian bookworm is...
