Re: Iridium browser workaround: putting security at risk?

Hi all, I'm still a bit preoccupied by this issue. I have used Iridium since I got it installed but if it would mean a decrease in the security of the system for having enabled kernel.unprivileged_userns_clone then I think I would give up on Iridium and revert the changes. I would really appreciate ...

After the command "sudo mount -a" the disk is mounted without errors.
Do you have r/w access to the device now?

Re: external hard disk NTFS not automatically mounted

Make a backup of your current fstab first: sudo cp /etc/fstab /etc/fstab.bckp Unmount the device from file manager if it is mounted. Then change the following line in fstab: UUID=605EC5CC11E45BE6 /mnt/backup auto nosuid,nodev,nofail,x-gvfs-show,x-gvfs-name=backup,users,noatime,ntfs-3g 0 0 to UUID=60...

Iridium browser workaround: putting security at risk?

Some days ago, I did the following in order to make Iridium to run on my MX: sudo touch /etc/sysctl.d/00-local-userns.conf sudo echo kernel.unprivileged_userns_clone=1 > /etc/sysctl.d/00-local-userns.conf sudo service procps restart This was originally posted and linked to here . Now I just read: No...

Re: Dual boot - who should control the boot manager?

That is a very interesting and practical way of doing this. I skimmed through that thread (already bookmarked for future reference) but I need to study it more closely to be able to implement it myself. If you do, and if there is a will power, :wink: consider making beginner friendly step by step g...

Re: Dual boot - who should control the boot manager?

I also save custom grub entries in a /boot/grub/custom.cfg file. That way if I modify said entries (i multiboot quite a few distros) I don't have to update-grub my controlling grub.
