Wanted to clone my Linux computer boot SSD to a larger SSD so I rebooted into Clonezilla. Which Iâ€™ve used hundreds (ok, about 20) times and had no problems with. I know what Iâ€™m doing. (He said as he stepped off the cliffâ€¦)
Set up the source drive (120g ssd), destination drive (250g ssd) and continued. After about 8 seconds Clonezilla told me it couldnâ€™t make a partition on the destination drive. Wha?
So I took the Clonezilla drive out and rebooted. Except it wouldnâ€™t boot. Then itâ€™d boot but reboot. Wha?
So, wound up just replacing the drive and reinstalling Linux xfce. Replace the broken cd drive at the same time. Rebuilding all my software/e-mail, whatever now. Oh, the Joy! Amazing the number of programs I install and use.
Nice out today. Got up on the roof yesterday and got the pole down that was holding my 2-meter antenna at one time. Itâ€™s now a cross-member on the top section of my tower ready to fly flags or hold a long-wire. Both probably. Thatâ€™s all done and my neighbor (the one that bought the 12-ton man-lift â€œcause I needed it.â€) is going to bring his man-lift down next week and help me put that last section up. Thatâ€™ll be fun!
Otherwise, ssdd around here.
Just tried to make a political comment and failed miserably. Having a hard time with the Democrats/Liberals and the things theyâ€™re doing to make President Trump lose this election. Our society has gone so far down the rabbit hole these past 15 years or so. Iâ€™m expecting a LOT of violence when he does get re-elected. I just wish we could fight fire with fire. Maybe if we let folks know we wonâ€™t stand for their bullshit and will actively fight back theyâ€™ll settle their asses down. Someone is going to have to hurt, and hurt bad, for them to get the message.
But we donâ€™t see them in our neighborhood. They know some of us have diggers and lots of propertyâ€¦
Just set up fstab for my local and network drives. Forgot the credentials file. Samba & cifs-utils working. All the directories made locally. sudo mount â€“a worked! Cool!
