Q: Discrepancy between linux man page and implementation on mmap

lolI am trying to compile a program that requires the mmap(2) to support the flag MAP_SYNC, but my compiler reports that no such thing exists. Now, I manually verified the header file for mmap and found out that flag's absent. My system's man page also says that mmap doesn't have any such flag, but ...

Q: cryptsetup resize returns device not active, despite cryptdisk status returning active and in use (resizing LVM-on-LUKS)

user374813I am in the process of resizing LVM-on-LUKS, referring to these two posts as guides. I had done this once before smoothly, but I have run into a strange problem. When I run #cryptsetup -b {blocks} resize /dev/mapper/cryptdisk Device /dev/mapper/cryptdisk is not active. However, #cryptsetup...

Just thought I'd share ubuntu-mate.org/blog/ubuntu-mate-19-10-eoan-ermine-release Really extensive Release notes.
12:08 PM
Yes the Ubuntu-MATE (beta) release notes were most impressive I thought too.
Why in the world do texts like this post’s introduction need emojis? Is the reader not expected to know what a cup of tea may look like? I understand (but still abhor) something like “make yourself ☕” or even “make yourself a cup of ☕”, though really unclear it’s at least a bit shorter, but “make yourself a cup of tea ☕” is unnecessary, damages reading fluency and lets me believe the author reckons their readers to be idiots.
Ugh, the whole “text” goes on like that? Oh come on!
I think emoji's lighten, & are an attempt to be cute. Me having suffered a brain injury I don't mind them, they're like easy-white-space that breaks the text up... making the longer paragraphs easier to read (at least for me)

what should I do .Moving bionic to SSD or install diso onto SSD. Grübel.
6:05 PM
@nobody Well bionic is an LTS which has support for the most modules until 2023, disco is a short term release which has only about 6-10 months support, after that you will not get any updates anymore and need to upgrade or fresh install a newer version
so my advice would be stick with 18.04 (bionic) until next year the 20.04 version comes out which is a long therm support release
But my system is 32bit sooner or later I have to
@nobody oww 32 bit system, this changes it a bit
so probably lubuntu or kubuntu 18.04 as the default ubuntu has already no 32 bit installer
My computer can 64bit bionic was sooner a virtual machine from a laptop without hardware virtualize
6:43 PM
@nobody No you lost me a bit, so your main computer can 64 ? and the rest is a bit confusing :)
sorry for being so delayed, im working in my household beside
My old laptop was 64bit but without the ability to virtualize 64bit system only 32bit
ah ok mhmmm im a noob when it comes to virtualization to be honest
I will think over. In the end I have too do new install but I am lazy and Debian waits to be upgraded too
Computer management is hard
@nobody if updates annoy you I recommend a rolling release distro like Arch Linux – this one comes with an excellent wiki which makes up for every single thing the distro doesn’t deliver (like a GUI installer, or any installer at all ;P).
7:06 PM
Yes I often use solutions from the arch wiki may I should give arch a try
I did and do not regret it.
7:25 PM
Good night together

Q: Stack Overflow Inc., sinat chinam, and the goat for Azazel

Monica CellioOn Friday, half an hour before Shabbat and two days before Rosh Hashana, Stack Overflow Inc. suddenly revoked my moderator status on all sites where I had it. I found this out while handling flags, when I suddenly got notifications for Marshal and Deputy badges (which moderators are ineligible t...

Q: useradd: UID 0 is not unique

ChipBurnsI'm using Ubuntu and attempting to take a course in Yocto. I've been able to download Yocto and run the 'hello-world' test script to verify the Yocto installation. The next step (from the instructor) is to run a script called "start.sh". When I attempt to run it as a user I get "permission den...

@TheWanderer It's ridiculous because you are on his side, or ridiculous because you are on the other side and he is appealing the sentence?
