Re: Cannot create a persistent link /run/media -> /media

^ Really think it's as good a solution as can be expected, as good as any other approach anyway. Simple and effective, no reason it should ever stop being valid, pretty much asked and answered your own question. :D Couldn't help it: Wanted to comment on the mnt not being suitable for permanent mount...

Re: Auto upgrade/notifiction with systemd timer/service unit

You'll notice in the first script it does do "sudo apt update" The CHK deal is command substitution as outlined to return the number of lines in the full command and that's set as the value of $CHK. Ah no worries. Hopefully some nuggets and interesting stuff in there. I like it better than...

Re: Auto upgrade/notifiction with systemd timer/service unit

^LMAO ... true. :D As usual with Nix, no shortage of ways to go about just about anything. Thought about a couple/few other routes, could've been all of 5 lines in a script + crontab or several other easy ways. No need of installing anything. Still can't hurt to explore some of the mysteries of syst...

Auto upgrade/notification with systemd timer/service units.

Well ... someone was asking in the forum about automatic upgrades/notification. Had been meaning to dork with it for awhile. Though popping open a terminal periodically and running "sudo apt update" etc isn't much bother. Still computers are meant to make life easier and being a dork why n...

Re: Some good bash and bash alias tricks.

Wanted to post a quick enhancement to the notification trick in a previous post. New and improved so that a terminal, in this case terminator will also pop up and display whatever reminder someone has set, in addition to espeak saying it. Could be easy to be out of room or doing something and just n...

Re: Thinking of installing debian but want to use sysvinit

dammit gotta do it ...

Why is more than a perfectly reasonable question in my view. Seen the thread and also started to...

Re: Unintended consequences of planting Firefox 87 in Buster

Re: Unintended consequences of planting Firefox 87 in Buster

Not reinventing the already endlessly reinvented wheel. An unproven backup/restore method is well, an unproven backup/restore method and clearly shouldn't be used. Almost always have gotten Firefox downloaded directly from Mozilla and run it from a directory in users home. Always latest, automatical...

Re: Do you use any spectre-meltdown mitigation kernel parama

Fairly well sure the mitigations are enabled default (99.999%) though too lazy to check the default config file. Atm using a stock kernel, mostly I do go ahead and custom compile them just cause it's something I prefer doing and formerly have taken to actually disabling mitigation measures such as r...
