    Post a screenshot of your Desktop

    So, now that I actually have a Linux desktop. I shall show more than just my cli. Here is the desktop. I'm still fighting with the color scheme in my IDE though. The theme + color scheme are a bit of a mismatch, but I'm still working on it. I like dark themes with decently high contrast...

    I kept a VM of Lubuntu's testing (currently beta) up for 2 weeks.

    Lubuntu's UI seems pretty barren. ;)

    You probably need to install the psutil module. pip install psutil

    Nice. I love the reference to meminfo. Procfs is such a trove of information! Though, sometimes you have to be able to do maths to make sense of it hah

    Came across this while surfing the garbage heap that is the Internet. :)

    Get the BIND (named) service config files from redhat

    The script text you provided doesn't appear to be the full script as it only contains the start function. In that script, it references ${ROOTDIR} which should be a variable referencing the root path to the named.conf. See below. if [ ! -r ${ROOTDIR}${named_conf} ] ; then The code above...

    Looking for some advice with unmounting problem

    I agree with @dos2unix. It appears something is holding the mount in place. Likely process or person is in the directory structure preventing it from unmounting. Display the output of lsof | grep '/mnt/' It should show you both the offending file or directory that is open and who the...

    Do you close your browser when you're done or leave your PC on with the browser open? If you do, are you sure you didn't accidently enable a setting to history data on close or specifically for this site?

    Psu Problems HELP

    The first place I would look would be heat dissipation on the CPU. I run a 750w PSU, but I have a GTX-1070, liquid cooler, and six hard drives. I likely pull more power than you do. I would first look at heat issues on the CPU. Look to see if you can find an app to measure the temp of...

    Are you using some type of security plugin in your browser? Or a common security (say av or edr) solution on all those PCs? It sounds like it might be wiping out your session data.

    Get the BIND (named) service config files from redhat

    You need to go look at your init.d script. I don't have anymore init.d servers, but if I recall correctly. Go look in /etc/init.d/ for a script called named. (or something very similar) Look inside that file and it should have the start up command which likely include the named.conf file...

    Restarting my Linux Desktop Journey

    Wooo, also a post about MLB.com (streaming baseball games) and their use of Moonlight at the time and my experience watching it with Linux on the desktop! See guys! I didn't always shun Linux on the desktop! hah

    Get the BIND (named) service config files from redhat

    I suspect your correct (read *active*) named.conf is /var/named/chroot/etc/named.conf. The other ones in that directory are likely backups when changes were made. As for the other ones outside of the chroot directory. Who knows what that is. Maybe backups of backups made by the previous...

    Restarting my Linux Desktop Journey

    Speaking of KDE. Here is a blog post I made back in 2009 about reviewing KDE 4.2 when it was released. I just happen across it while looking at something else I had done years ago.

    Restarting my Linux Desktop Journey

    Yeah, LXDE is what I had used in the past. So they switched to QT these days huh? I'm a huge fan of QT, but geez there commercial license is crippling expensive lol

    Restarting my Linux Desktop Journey

    Funny thing, Cinnamon is one of my favorite flavors and Mint is one of my most disliked flavors. I use cinnamon Crest toothpaste and citrus flavored Listerine for mouthwash because of how much I dislike mint.

    Restarting my Linux Desktop Journey

    I've ran it in the past. I think my next one will be something with Cinnamon because that is the last one I definitely liked. I hear a lot of good things about Manjaro and I hear it has Cinnamon, but I've also heard on multiple occasions that some updates / upgrades go very badly requiring a...

    [Solved] Script does not run after reboot (systemd)

    Sure. His script is echoing the date into a file. #!/bin/bash echo $(date) >> /home/hal/Desktop/log Though I was suggesting updating it with paths. #!/bin/bash /usr/bin/echo $(/usr/bin/date) >> /home/hal/Desktop/log

    Restarting my Linux Desktop Journey

    So far, I'm not disliking KDE. It's actually similar to how I remember it back when I was using it. Obviously, I will likely spin up some other distros. The only downside I found to SUSE so far is that annoying fact that gdb complains about missing debuginfo libraries even though I see some...
