BTW, please use code tags when posting that sort of stuff https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...do=bbcode#code

So understated!

That link is the answer to shubhamuddu's question, so the shubhamuddu should read and believe the info there.

"you may like to" is probably just politeness, but to me it adds uncertainty to an otherwise correct answer.
