Installing Arch in Asus UX31A problems and wiki sketchview story

https://bbs.archlinux.org – I just installed Arch on my UX31A.  It ended up taking a few more hours than it should have, but it works.To be honest, I didn't even try following the UX31A-specific wiki page; your posts here sent me off on a hunt to boot from a flash drive in UEFI mode, which led me to the method I'll outline here:I downloaded the latest archboot iso from:http://server4.surlyjake.com/archlinux/ … (HowTos)

Backup strategies using BTRFSview story

https://bbs.archlinux.org – I use BTRFS on RAID to protect against drive failures, and snapper [1,2] for timelined backups protecting against human failures and/or bogus system updates.Additionaly I copy critical data to external drives from time to time to protect against filesystem failures (which is good to have until BTRFS has a reliably working fsck tool) teekay https://bbs.archlinux.org/profile.php?id=53621 (HowTos)

Linking ".." do somewhere other than parent directory and other strange fs beharviorsview story

http://unix.stackexchange.com – Can the entry ".." become linked to someplace other than the parent directory? Is it possible to cause "tar" to create this weird behavior? Scenario: I have a pre-built compiler to a embeded system, distributed as tar.gz files, which works perfectly in Ubuntu 10.04. When testing an upgrade to Ubuntu 12.04 in a VirtualBox VM, it failed to find out some header files. (HowTos)

[ubuntu] FSCK helpview story

http://ubuntuforums.org – I've been having issues over almost 2 years now. It started after an upgrade to 10.10. I had later did a fresh install but it didn't fix my problems. Most often, my system crashes while using a Flash heavy site(FB games like Cityville or Millionaire City) and even playing online videos from really any site. THe system may slow quite a bit and then just crash. (Hardware)

[all variants] An superblock tale of woeview story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Goodly men and womenfolk of Ubuntu-land.

Herein follows a saga of tragedy not told since days of Romeo and Juliet. (Hardware)

Automatic fsckview story

http://forums.fedoraforum.org – From time to time it happens that I have a power failure and my computer shuts down uncleanly. Every time it happens, though, the next boot drops me into an emergency shell and tells me to run fsck manually. This has happened more than once, and each time the system boots fine after running fsck. When I used Ubuntu I never had to run it manually. (HowTos)

Test EXT3 Filesystem Integrityview story

http://serverfault.com – Our operations team was trying to shrink an LVM logical volume, and forgot to shrink the partition sitting on top of it first. They got a bunch of errors, and made the mistake of running e2fsck right away to try and fix the disk. Needless to say, the box was not happy. As of this morning I hopped on the box and was able to salvage it by restoring the LV to 100% of the disk. (HowTos)
