I have a hdd attached to my server. It's sda but has 2 partitions so sda1 @16M and sda2 @3.6T It defaulted to being in the location /media/devmon so I kept that and it worked for ages. Suddenly the data is gone. I had files located here: /media/devmon/4tb_drive/kiwix/zim and that directory is now empty. But I put the drive into a Windows box, and everything was there.

When I run mount /dev/sda2 /media/devmon/ it says:

The disk contains an unclean file system (0, 0).
Metadata kept in Windows cache, refused to mount.
Falling back to read-only mount because the NTFS partition is in an
unsafe state. Please resume and shutdown Windows fully (no hibernation
or fast restarting.)
Could not mount read-write, trying read-only

I originally formatted this drive in Windows, is that the issue? Ideally I'd use btrfs or zfs not ntfs, but here we are.

How do I get access again?

I watched this video where they talked about how someone installed Linux on their Google drive. Like, installing everything in Google drive, not finding some Google client. Storing the /* in Drive.

I am currently attempting to do this as well, but with Microsoft OneDrive. I'll update you all on my progress!

This isn't a gloat post. In fact, I was completely oblivious to this massive outage until I tried to check my bank balance and it wouldn't log in.

Apparently Visa Paywave, banks, some TV networks, EFTPOS, etc. have gone down. Flights have had to be cancelled as some airlines systems have also gone down. Gas stations and public transport systems inoperable. As well as numerous Windows systems and Microsoft services affected. (At least according to one of my local MSMs.)

Seems insane to me that one company's messed up update could cause so much global disruption and so many systems gone down :/ This is exactly why centralisation of services and large corporations gobbling up smaller companies and becoming behemoth services is so dangerous.

HDR screenshots (feddit.uk)

Just wanted to find out if there was any progress in terms of screenshots when using gamescope and KDE 6. Last time I tried (running Arch and with an AW3423DWF monitor with HDR 1000), display support worked, but screenshots seemed insanely washed out and generally broken, which was unfortunately a make it or break it feature for me. Has anyone got a similar setup that they can try it out on?

I wanted to make VirtualBox kernel module working so
Upgraded kernel from 6.6.7 -> 6.9.9.

Two libraries were missing ( libelf1t64 and libssl3t64 ) so
I begun to upgrade the ubuntu from 23.10 to 24.02 ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'apt_pkg'

apt now is broken and I can't add a PPA to install a python3.8 or build from source as I can't resolve dependencies in package manager.

only python3.11 and python3.12 are installed

M1 Macbook Air (sh.itjust.works)
submitted 23 hours ago* (last edited 23 hours ago) by Amongussussyballs100@sh.itjust.works to c/linux@lemmy.ml

Was looking at getting a macbook air with an m1 chip in it and running Asahi Linux on it. My question is how viable is it for daily life? E.g. browsing, torrenting, uni notes ect. Would it be equivalent to a regular x86 laptop running Linux? Or would I be missing useful features?

Edit: Another question is how it holds up against newer AMD laptops, as it is 3-4 years old at this point.

to my shame i did not know how to customize the nmtui default colors (for the sake of my own health and mental stability). after reading a bit, i found out it uses the so-called newt backend with the whiptail app.

long story short... turns out it reads some of the env variables for that backend to setup the colors (if you're interested, here's where this happens in the code).

so you can simply set these env variables before calling nmtui. here's a combination i came up with:

NEWT_COLORS='root=black,black;window=black,black;border=white,black;listbox=white,black;label=blue,black;checkbox=red,black;title=green,black;button=white,red;actsellistbox=white,red;actlistbox=white,gray;compactbutton=white,gray;actcheckbox=white,blue;entry=lightgray,black;textbox=blue,black' nmtui

enjoy and keep your eyes healthy!

Ted Ts'o sent out the EXT4 updates today for Linux 6.11. He explained in that pull request:

"Many cleanups and bug fixes in ext4, especially for the fast commit feature. Also some performance improvements; in particular, improving IOPS and throughput on fast devices running Async Direct I/O by up to 20% by optimizing jbd2_transaction_committed()."

It’s become clear to many that Red Hat’s recent missteps with CentOS and the availability of RHEL source code indicate that it’s fallen from its respected place as “the open organization.” SUSE seems to be poised to benefit from Red Hat’s errors. We connect the dots.

I have a NTFS drive for Storage, which is shared between Win 11.

I want to change the location of (or replace) ~/Downloads, ~/Music, etc..,.

Note that the link to made is between NTFS and EXT4.

I found two ways while searching.

   1.Creating **Symlinks** in `~` with target pointed to folders in NTFS drive.

   2. **Mounting** the NTFS folders **directly** to`~/Downloads`, `~/Music`, etc..,.

Which one should I do? Which one is more beneficial?

Also how to mount folders to other folders (option 2) ? (I would really appreciate a GUI way)

I know this is not that important of a thing to post on Main Linux Community, but I already asked 2 linux4noobs community, and they are empty.

This is a continuation to my previous discussion, where most of the people said,

  1. It doesn't matter where I mount.

  2. Mount certain folders directly into home other. (like mounting /mnt/data/music to ~/music)

The messages here are mostly in German, but I'll try to translate mist of it:

I really hope someone can help me out here..

EDIT: I kinda forgot to actually mention my problem. When booting nornall, I get stuck at a lonely white blinking cursor on a black screen, so startx seems to make some problems. I enter a TTY and run startx and this is what I get when running startx:

output of startx


  • Uninstall your current nvidia driver (for example using sudo apt remove nvidia-driver on Debian)
  • Install the headers for your kernel. your kernel you can check rather easily by running neofetch
  • Install the headers required for your kernel. Do that by listing all packages with your kernel name in it. For example like this: apt list *6.9.7+bpo*
  • reboot, install your nvidia driver again and rovoot again. Should be done.

So, I have my desktop configured with two drives, one has a regular windows install on it that I need to play games with my brother. That works fine.
My second drive originally had Debian on it. But I wanted to also install EndeavorOS. At this point in time, all 3 work, but the selection process to access each system is painfully different.

To access Windows, I just boot from cold, and hit enter or wait for the timer to run out on Windows booting. But when I hit esc to cancel booting Windows, it brings me to Debian's GRUB selector. But I think when I installed EOS I used the default settings, and I believe it doesn't use GRUB by default (systemd). So the GRUB menu I get only has Debian or Windows. If I hit 'esc' again I am brought to the grub> command line. Here the only thing I know how to do is type "exit" and it closes this grub> cmd line and opens another, very similar one. I type 'exit' again and I am finally met with EndeavorOS's boot selector (I believe this is systemd?)

Now I know from my first dual boot with windows/Debian that I am pretty much stuck having windows boot loader run first, so my perfect scenario of having a single selector off boot is a pipe dream, but I'd love to remove a few of the GRUB cmd steps in getting to EOS (chances are I will only need the Debian system for very specific tasks. odds are I will end up removing it) I'm guessing if I would have told the EOS installer to use GRUB it would have potentially added EOS to the GRUB selection screen? Is it possible to rectify this without wiping and reinstalling with different boot loader options?

I installed it from the Calamaries Installer found in the LIVE USB ISO this time. And Instead of my primary hdd, I installed it on the other one. Works now, thanks for all of your support, dear nerds.

cross-posted from: https://lemm.ee/post/37281970

Believe it or not, an unexpected conflict has arisen in the openSUSE community with its long-time supporter and namesake, the SUSE company.

At the heart of this tension lies a quiet request that has stirred not-so-quiet ripples across the open source landscape: SUSE has formally asked openSUSE to discontinue using its brand name.

Richard Brown, a key figure within the openSUSE project, shared insights into the discussions that have unfolded behind closed doors.

Despite SUSE’s request’s calm and respectful tone, the implications of not meeting it could be far-reaching, threatening the symbiotic relationship that has benefited both entities over the years.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Linux is a family of open source Unix-like operating systems based on the Linux kernel, an operating system kernel first released on September 17, 1991 by Linus Torvalds. Linux is typically packaged in a Linux distribution (or distro for short).

Distributions include the Linux kernel and supporting system software and libraries, many of which are provided by the GNU Project. Many Linux distributions use the word "Linux" in their name, but the Free Software Foundation uses the name GNU/Linux to emphasize the importance of GNU software, causing some controversy.
