I believe that in previous kernel upgrades I just had used what I think is the standard process with no error. But I had failed to upgrade to any sub-version of 5.10.

I don't remember what moderately crazy or nonsensical attempt I tried along the way, not that many, but finally I've solved it in a way I just didn't expect.

I simply backed up/renamed the source directory, and downloaded again with git, and did the two or three commands listed on the README. And it just...

Restoring the ability to mount local drives as a normal user, without password, in Debian 11

Posted 09-09-2021 at 01:20 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)

I don't recall having tweaked any setting to have "udiskctl mount" working without password in the same exact situation, but whatever happened, after the upgrade from Debian 10 to 11, it no longer worked.

Simple idea for a debug verbosity tool on bash scripts

Posted 09-07-2021 at 09:06 AM by the dsc (linux-related notes)
Tags bash, debug

I used to just have lots of "echos" around my scripts printing where it is on a loop or whatever, so I have a better idea of whats happening, often somewhat more clear than with "bash -x", even though that also may help, of course. But the odds are that I'd at some point just leave such debug echos there while the script runs on a daily basis on the background, just helping .xsession-errors to become enormous, for no good reason, since it's working and I'm not reading it. And...
