Hi,I was thinking about using an LVM on a new machine. I don't need an LVM there, but I had the idea of using snapshots to kind of "backup" the system before a "pacman -Syu", so in case the update breaks something (very rare, but better safe than sorry) and I don't have the time to deal with that now, then I can just rollback and do the update later.
I always find the section in the Fedora release notes "Changes in Fedora for System Administrators" very useful. One of my co workers has upgraded his computer from SL4 to SL6 and is now complaining that he does not know how things work.
Hello, I have a rooted Fascinate SCH-i500 that tried to apply an OTA update. Since then, the device boots into the stock Android system recovery <2e>. If I select "reboot system now" the device will load into the OS and everything seems functional, however, it will reboot after about 30 seconds back into the recovery screen.
My system got stuffed after a trivial online update, it downloaded a new kernel update, I rebooted and now it won't boot at all saying "FATAL: Could not load /lib/modules/126.96.36.199-0.1-desktop/modules.dep: No such file or directory", then some stuff, then "mount: unknown filesystem type 'ext4'", "could not mount root filesystem"...
Can I set to the updater check software updates at every day, but the system and security updates only every month?
It drives me crazy the "Restart needed" icon. I have to restart more times than under Windows. :'(
Kernel update, dbus update... I don't want to restart so many times, but I want my softwares up-to-date. That's the reason why I don't use LTS.
