Re: Migration from Windows10 to Debian10

This is ridiculously high. It's almost, ALMOST like it's an over simplified example... And nice cherry picking by completely ignoring the prior sentence too. This is an appoximation which is valid only when the probability is much less than 1 (p << 1). It is not valid for p = 0.45. The actual proba...

Re: Migration from Windows10 to Debian10

Dear fellow Debian forum users, thank you for the "ntfs-3g" clue for maintaining access to my multimedia storage volume. Btw, I see 2 recommendations to NOT create a ssd raid boot volume. I was thinking that while SSD is fast, 2 SSD drives in RAID 0 would be even faster (simultaneous read...

Nah, you really should STFU. You again are talking about things you don't understand. But, you are 1/5th right at least, so you got something right for once! You should probably celebrate that....

It's rather obvoius that Debian Users don't need WSL, just like Windows users don't need WINE.

Re: Access Linux encrypted volume from Windows - what is nee

You would need librecrypt and ext2fsd. ext2fsd isn't maintained that much, and the main site is down so grab the latest from sourceforge. I've used it in the past for having ext3 drives read /write directly on windows, worked a treat back in the day. I can't see anything stopping you since it suppor...

Re: Rsync problem

Attention, though! FAT32 supports no files greater than 2 GiB in size. Use exFAT or NTFS to accomodate big files. It's 4GB. Hence the whole size limit flag in the original rsync command. tar -cvzf /media/USB/backup.tar.gz /home Use tar this way, rsync is not advisable. If the OP doesn't want to eve...

Re: Why do you use debian?

Because it's easier to just keep using my installs that are already Debian than move them over to something else. Debian is just like anything else, a tool. It's the right tool for some jobs, but there are other tools that make some jobs easier. Workstations, for example, I've found were easier to s...

Hello. I'm using Debian Buster with Xfce 4.12.

Welcome to SID. It broke, you get to keep all the pieces. That being said, look in your logs to see what's failing. If I was betting, I would put my money on GFX card firmware missing and crashing cinnamon before it can fall back to software rendering. If you have to ask what logs to look at instead...

Well, since the controller thinks the drive size is zero bytes long, and that there are no addressable areas of storage memory at all I'm gonna go out an a limb and say NO.

Try the nouveau driver instead. Or buy a graphics card from a manufacturer that doesn't hate the open source community. Yeah, buy worse hardware so people don't have to fix crap software.
