    Manage your software sources in Debian, Ubuntu and Mint

    I wish this had been around when I was learning Debian.

    Manage your software sources in Debian, Ubuntu and Mint

    Thanks, jsbjsb001! I'd been meaning to create a couple of extra blog posts for a while but hadn't got around to it. I'm glad I did now.

    You should create that post - it could prove very useful for users of CentOS. A sticky in the CentOS distribution sub-forum sounds like a good plan!

    Manage your software sources in Debian, Ubuntu and Mint

    Nice work hydrurga!

    Not that I use either of those distros myself, but some very useful info there!

    I was actually thinking of creating a post (not a blog) about common yum problems, people mixing different versions of repo's for CentOS. Like having repo's for CentOS 6 in yum's repolist on CentOS 7 and similar.

    I was going to post a question in LQ S&F forum about if it would be a good idea to create a sticky advising people about yum's repolist, along with some common problems (chief among them mixing the wrong repo's and alike), and how to check to see what the problem could be, then how to fix it. As at least some of what you've said here could also apply to yum and such too. But I've been too lazy to ask...

    Nice work again tho!

    Partitions - MBR vs. GPT

    I agree with astrogeek that the LQ Blog section is underused.

    We need more top class efforts like this one from hydrurga.

    Partitions - MBR vs. GPT

    I had previously read this blog entry without commenting. But having read it once more it certainly deserves a big WELL DONE! I think the LQ blog space is much under utilized and am glad to see well written articles posted here! Thanks, and more!

    Partitions - MBR vs. GPT

    Much appreciated, svg. "If careful" is the relevant phrase here. I've added a bullet point to the MBR section ("Note that it is also possible...") to address this point. Please let me know if you have any further comments on this or any other portions of the blog. Cheers.

    Partitions - MBR vs. GPT

    Quote:
    Thus the maximum partition size, as well as the maximum amount of space usable from the start of a device, in a MBR scheme is normally 2TiB.
    Not strictly true - if a partition starts before the 2T limit, it can also be 2T in size (512 byte sectors). Thus up to almost 4T can be assigned if careful.
