A Start Job Is Running ERROR

Posted Today at 01:10 AM by Ztcoracat

If you get this error message upon booting up chances are it's a simple fix.

My Debian system would boot but would be delayed with a 1 min and 30s error message.

A start job is running for dev-disk uuid (exact #'s of the device/HDD) 1 min 30s
To correct the error run blkid and compare it's output to that which is in your /etc/fstab file.
If the 2 files do not match than change the UUID in fstab to that which is shown by blkid.

How To Debug Linux C Programs Effectively Using The Debugger

Posted 02-20-2019 at 03:23 PM by rtmistler


The purpose of this blog is to provide a guide to Linux C (and C++) programmers as to how to use the Gnu DebuGger, GDB, effectively.

My reasons for writing this are because I participate a great deal in the Linux Questions site and view, plus respond to a number of questions in the Programming forum, and I notice that programmers of various experience seem to be lacking in either experience+knowledge, or initiative, to use the debugger.

WACOM DTU-2231 on Debian Jessie

Lately got this great display-tablet for my laptop. It can be used either as a display mapped to the screen or as a separate monitor. When not connected to the VGA/HDMI it will act as a digitizer tablet inputting onto the active screen.

When connected to the HDMI/VGA it acts as a separate display. The problem now is that it mixes up the two screens for the input area as it does not know how to handle the different areas.

The information on the net is not very specific...
