    Grub Update error

    I installed Bodhi 64bit on its on hard drive while my windows drive was disconnected so there was no way for the install to mess with the windows drive. I use the bios bbs boot menu to select which OS to load. I just did a update with terminology and got an error and not sure what to do with it. Both OS's boot fine but I get this error when performing the update; any help is appreciated.. Reading state information... Done 0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded. 1 not fully installed or removed. After this operation, 0 B of additional disk space will be used.

    [SOLVED] Wanting to try EFM

    I have googled and searched to no avail on how to load EFM to check it out. I used synaptic to try and install it but that was a miserable failure for me. Would someone guide me in the general direction on how to do this? Edit: DOH! Ok now I feel stupid. All I had to do was load the module to try it. And now I find this, I guess I just wasn't using the right keywords in my searches. http://forums.bodhil...-consideration/

    wiping external hard drive for backup

    I have an external drive formatted to ntfs 500 gig, once the os is setup like I want it I use clonezilla to do a complete image of the OS and store it on the external drive. This was done for Bodhi & W7 both OS's are on different drives. (I don't like dual boot) I select the OS with the bbs in cmos. Then for the ever changing thing like document, email, bookmarks, ect. I put the following line in .bachrc that copies the stuff to the ext4 partition on the windows drive. alias sync='rsync -avr .mozilla .thunderbird documents .bashrc /media/sda4/sync' All I have to do in terminal is type sync and it copies it to my ext4 partition on the windows drive. (it needs to be ext partition in order to perserve the perms) I also set up a portion of the linux drive with an ntfs partition to handle backups for windows to the linux drive. also in .bashrc I have two other entries in it to update and to clean up error logs created by a game that doesn't have a proper exit out of it. "up" in term executes it no qoutes This one updates the system and carries it's own broom & dustpan with it. alias up='sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade && sudo apt-get autoclean && sudo apt-get autoremove' This one cleans up the mess Minecraft left behind with it's error logs. "clean" in term executes this one no qoutes alias clean='rm /home/mark/*.log' There may be better ways to do this but it works for me.

    Hmmm Bodhi is rock solid on this end, maybe it was the operator... Just kidding.. Hell of a job you and the team are doing and keep up the fantastic work. Thanks

    Good year for mushrooms

    A little gritty raw (rinsed of course) but not to bad when 22 or so are boiled to a quart jar.

    Wow you were busy, as long as your aware of the good from bad that is all that matters. Just make sure you don't get any shrooms from the middle of the cow patties

    rsync question

    Well, there is the problem. Thanks you two Edit: Yep I changed over to ext4 on the partitions used for the things I wanted to do and problem solved ;-) now I have the rsync in bashrc syncing the things that change a lot. Guess what I call the alias? Buzzzzzzz times up "sync" lol

    rsync question

    I didn't want to post this in support because it has nothing to do with Bodhi. I have two drives and i'm rsyncing from one drive to another. I use "rsync -avr" with the locations and file/directories and it changes the user to root. How can I get it to keep the existing user and perms? I have gone through the man pages and tried most of them to no avail.

    Partitioning order and sizes.

    I have seen so many partitioning schemes in the searches I have done which has made it as clear as mud to me. One post that stuck in my head for some reason ( maybe I didn't allocate enough space in my head for more to stick) was to partitition in this order and didn't give a reason for it. My quess in using this order is if you ever decide you need to increase the size of root later on it makes it easier but I don't know though: /boot -- 100 Meg (Mine is also 100m) /swap -- 1 - 2 gig, But I read on others that if your running 3-4 gig of ram you don't need a swap. ( Mine is 2G ) /Root -- 10 - 20 gig ( Mine is 40G ) /Home -- bunches; this assuming you have a smaller HD but I can't see needing more than 20 gig ( Mine is 40G ) Since the drive I have is HUGE as to what I need I had the final partition and the remainder of the drive set as ntfs and is shared . (400G or so) What is your scheme and why is it in the order and size you chose?
