Re: Strange sorting order - why?

The sort man page shows multiple flags that can be used to sort in many ways. For example, only using alphanumerical chars... see: https://www.gnu.org/software/coreutils/manual/html_node/sort-invocation.html#sort-invocation Or you can use a sorting library in scripting language that will do it the s...

Re: Flicker-free boot with Plymouth and OEM logo using BGRT

Well, in my view Debian has adopted a surprising amount of "aesthetical" stuff in the last years to make the OS work well and easily for desktop use. And I see no reason something like this would not be adapted, but of course if it is, it will take some time and it probably needs to be ups...

Re: Flicker-free boot with Plymouth and OEM logo using BGRT

Yes, Fedora has had this for some years now, in addition to there not being these screen reinits/flickers, the UEFI can continue to show content (like vendor logos) when the operating system is loading (or alternatively plymouth can display its stuff). But as far as I know, it is quite complicated. ...

Re: Configuring a remote workstation; Tips?

I would be really surprised to know that some university campus allows USB boot from computers. Most universities also have cloud computing workstations, so whatever workstation you would have at home would pale in comparison. Unless it is something really custom. However, in my experience, most uni...

Re: Uart Raspberry

That is not an official Debian image, but the guy that is making it says that it uses the config.txt file to talk to the firmware just as Raspbian does. So, if whatever you are doing does not work, but it should according to official Raspbian guides, there is a bug that you could try to report to him.

Re: What's wrong with my Raspberry Pi 2?

This is the wrong forum, the raspberry pi forum has 100 X the users of this forum and they all use raspberry pi and many use pihole. There is a reason ssh for root is typically not allowed (security). It is more secure to allow normal user to ssh in and the use sudo, for example. Perhaps you should ...

You had an argument with nearly everyone on this forum. Then, I remember that you had a bigger one with somebody and left saying that you will never come back, Tomazzi.

Re: BTRFS on Debian Stable, your experiences?

The main problem with the Phoronix file system benchmarks is the IOPS: the reported values are unrealistic even for SSD arrays. There's only one explanation for this phenomenon: the benchmarks are performed in RAM (in the I/O caches) - i.e. the tests are too small to show real fs performance. Since...

If you say that such benchmarks exist, please provide a link describing the results and what machine/setup they were ran on. Also clearly explain why this other result is more fair or better. Or perhaps, if such a thing has not been done, but you suspect it could be done, what kind of results would ...

Re: BTRFS on Debian Stable, your experiences?

That benchmark on Phoronix is worth crap, because Mr Larabel has no idea how to setup md Raid10 and how to configure Ext4 for use with the raid array. Yes, if someone knew how to design a better, more fair and meanigful benchmark, people would not ignore it, for sure as crap! Right now, this is the...

To what extent energy efficiency is relevant may depend on the background where the issue emerges quite a lot. Electricity is really cheap, well at least we can probably say that when you are paying like 10-20 euro cent for a kilowatt hour (this is what I presume the price to be in the western world...
