Reddit: Bacula vs Amanda - single host backup of CentOS 7 system.

Sunday 8th of February 2015 11:46:28 PM

The only post I had seen about this was about 5 years old. I thought I would see what others thought would be a good/better solution.

I have a single host running CentOS 7and I noticed both Amanda and Bacula are in the base channel, which is cool. I am running a pretty vanilla SOHO setup on an Intel NUC I will be backing up to a single externally attached drive, hopefully in a way I can have it encrypted.

LXer: Samsung’s Z1 Tizen smartphone is a big mess

Sunday 8th of February 2015 11:46:20 PM
Samsung and Google have always had an…er…challenging relationship. The two companies have been at loggerheads over various issues over the years. And it’s no secret that for years Samsung has been wanting to cut out Android altogether so it could fully control its mobile software as well as hardware.

Reddit: Installing Ubuntu on MyPassport Issue

Sunday 8th of February 2015 11:31:58 PM

I have tried to install the latest version of Ubuntu on to my MyPassport 1TB external hard drive but when I got to boot from boot menu it is stuck at "Loading operating system...." I downloaded the latest version and copied the .iso file to the external hard drive but that did not work so I took all of the files from the .iso and copied them to the drive. But nothing is working! Please help!

Reddit: TMSU 0.5.0 released. Tag your files then mount a virtual filesystem for access to your files, by tag, from any other program.

Sunday 8th of February 2015 10:44:48 PM


I'm the author of TMSU. If you've not heard of it before it's my pet project that lets you tag your files (from the command line) and then mount a virtual filesystem that lets you access them, by tag, from any other program.

I've just released version 0.5.0 which has a number of new features and bug fixes.

Usage goes something like this:

$ tmsu tag photo.jpg holiday country=spain year=2014 family $ tmsu tag song.mp3 music big-jazz good $ tmsu files music song.mp3 $ tmsu files "year > 2010 holiday" photo.jpg

You can bring up a virtual filesystem like this:

$ mkdir mp $ tmsu mount mp $ ls mp/tags big-jazz country family good holiday music year

Feel free to ask any questions. I've posted about it on reddit before but I'm happy to go over any questions you have about how it works, the decisions I've made on its operation or how it's changed in 0.5.0.

Thanks for your time!

Reddit: Universal shell applets/APIs

Sunday 8th of February 2015 09:19:52 PM

Recently I stumbled upon nm-applet that adds the network manager to the tray of the current X11 shell (xfce, i3, gnome). How does this work exactly.. is there some universal way to add tray icons? What other universal X11 shell APIs exist and how can I learn more?

Reddit: [HELP] issues with drive partitions on Ubuntu server

Sunday 8th of February 2015 08:54:50 PM

So I recently set up a home server running ubuntu server 14. I'm managing it via putty and webmin. I have an issue though. I accidentally created a partition that uses the entire drive space, and that has the ubuntu install on it. I would like to shrink the partition via LVM, but I can't shrink a partition that is in use. Is there some way to get around this?

I've got Win 7 installed on an ssd and now Linux on a completely separate ssd. How can I dual boot them in this setup? As of now I just go into bios on restart and select the drive. Is there a better way? Thanks.
