Re: User/group permission change not reflected immediately

From my environments, general practice for system process accounts that you have logged in via a change to /etc/passwd (from no login to bash then back for example), or for users is that you would just pkill/sighup/sigkill/hup their sessions to force a reset of that accounts permissions on the syste...

Re: For how many years have you been using GNU/Linux?

I was running I think Windows 98 at home and wanted to upgrade to the newest Windows which was Millennium Edition. I want to be polite to the efforts put behind that software that to this day no one has anything positive to say about, and which MS doesn't seem to talk about :lol:. That being said, I...

Re: Notifications check box

I think once you are on that page it marks them as viewed. You can also check them off in the notification area.... I have to wait to get one to show you. Ahhh. I thought I could select them individually. Apparently I can select either Mark ALL or Unmark All. Yes, it seems all or nothing. Here is t...

On a whim I changed the style to breeze. Not only did I not care for the look, the check boxes didn't work with that style. Do you have a recommendation @donald ?

I was wondering when someone would point that out :lol:, for now lets use the honor system and 'inxi -Fxz'...

I generally run a kernel ahead or jump to the most current: uname -a Linux localhoster 5.10.0-0.bpo.3-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 5.10.13-1~bpo10+1 (2021-02-11) x86_64 GNU/Linux This gives me, for my ne...
