Re: Monthly snapshot announcement

Great little script, I wonder if we generalize it a bit and make it accept some arguments... ... ... Very good, and good to the planet too (less energy and time to spend) I simply replaced into the script "ARCH='x64'" by "ARCH='386'" and few time after I have the "MX-17.1_June_386.iso" iso file ava...

Re: Convince me to install MX over Ubuntu

Hello, @ekeimaja .As already said. You invert the question skillfully, you do not have to be convinced because you are free of your choices (like into Democracies) and free of charge (not like into democracies ;-)). This choice belongs to you alone. So trying and seeing by yourself is the best way t...

Re: Recover from frozen frugal static system?

... A length of 2048 should be enough for you, shouldn't it? lol. Exact Fehlix .. I hope so (I have some long directories, an only one can fill the size ) I am joking ;-) grep COMMAND_LINE_SIZE /usr/src/linux-headers-4.17.0/arch/x86/include/asm/setup.h #define COMMAND_LINE_SIZE 2048 Edit: A missing...

Re: Recover from frozen frugal static system?

... With these boot-paramters you have lot's of flexibilitty: bdev The name of the boot device. For example bdev=sda1. blab The partition label of the boot device. buuid The UUID of the boot device. bdir The boot directory. pdev The name of the persistence device. For example *pdev=sdb2*. plab The ...

Re: Recover from frozen frugal static system?

... As you already specified the boot-device with "bdev" you would not need "from=hd" as the boot-device is already given and the search for a boot-device will be skipped anyway. So not need to ask for search with from=hd to search for hd-devices as this will be ignored. Right Fehlix, from=hd is no...

Re: Recover from frozen frugal static system?

... Thank you fehlix for your help (as usual) Into my custom GRUB-menu, I added your boot parameters and that did the trick.

Re: Recover from frozen frugal static system?

Well, when you shutdown you might see a rsync activity. This rsync is the persistence sync,which will wr...
