How to configure NFS Server and Client Configuration on Ubuntu 15.04

Posted 09-29-2015 at 04:18 AM by sridhar11

NFS was developed at a time when we weren't able to share our drives like we are able to today -- in the Windows environment. It offers the ability to share the hard disk space of a big server with many smaller clients. Again, this is a client/server environment. While this seems like a standard service to offer, it was not always like this. In the past, clients and servers were unable to share their disk space.Thin clients have no hard drives and thus need a "virtual" hard-disk. The NFS...

☻☻☻ Pipeing youtube-dl output to a given player (and having it as a mini-script)

youtube-dl -f ${2:-5} $1 -q -o - | mpv -

Killed my xserver - here is a quick fix

Posted 09-21-2015 at 08:23 AM by WestCoastSunset

Delete your xorg.conf and reboot.

Actually, I just logged in as root and moved it to my home folder. I wanted to compare the new configuration file, which gets autogenerated, to the mangled config, which got that way when I tried to get Jedi Outcast running.

I did have to reset the resolution as it was on 640 x 480 (This is the default resolution for Jedi I think)
