General Help & Advice / Re: Trouble with samba shares at bootup
« on: June 20, 2017, 06:28:37 pm »
Is there a way to have samba automatically allow sharing without me entering the password.

So you want the shares automounted ?

Are these share accessible anonymously, or do they require a username and password ?

Try this;
Code: [Select]
sudo mv -v /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libcrypto.so.1.0.0 /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libcrypto.so.1.0.0.bak
then see if
Code: [Select]
sudo dpkg --configure -a
finishes without error ?

If it does, run:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install --reinstall libssl1.0.0 openssl

If it doesn't, move it back with
Code: [Select]
sudo mv -v /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libcrypto.so.1.0.0.bak /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libcrypto.so.1.0.0

My main PC is in our bedroom and the 'other' monitor is the TV in the living room.

Can you explain that ? .. so they're somehow connected at the same time ?

How is the TV connected ? .. HDMI ? .. how long is the cable ?

Ubuntu / Re: Ubuntu getting slow

In 2 terminals, leave
Code: [Select]
top
and
Code: [Select]
iotop
running.

The when the PC slows down, try to see if there's some process that's either hammering the CPU (top) or hard drive (iotop).

My point is, there's no point in taking a single reading from those whilst the PC isn't running slowly .. so do something that causes the system to slow down, and look at those terminals whilst it's doing it.

Could be but I doubt it, if there's disk thrashing I'd have thought it more likely an HDD problem.

If you install iotop
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install iotop
then run it
Code: [Select]
sudo iotop
is there anything at the top that's using an inordinate percentage of "IO>" ?

Also what's the output from:
Code: [Select]
sudo smartctl -A /dev/sda

Well that's suggesting your boot finished in 37.751 seconds, so how are you defining 2 minutes ?

AFAIK it's all about Microsoft Azure running Linux VM's, so system admins can administer Linux VM's from within Windows (Powershell).
