You can write a poor man's syslog server quite easily with socat`. You just need a service unit like this: [Service] Restart=on-success ExecStart=/usr/bin/socat -u UDP-RECV:514 STDOUT It will blindly send anything received on the syslog service port to the systemd journal. Save the above as, say, /etc/systemd/system/syslog.service and then # systemctl ...

The correct way to delete a package is pacman -R package-name. To delete everything, including modified configuration files and dependencies you may have pulled in with a tool such as yaourt or packer, run pacman -Rns package-name. In this respect, AUR packages are no different from native packages.

2 shots: 1. Perhaps login as root is denied (that's the default setting on many systems and it is pretty reasonable). Did you tried with a different user? 2. Did you try sshing with ssh -Y?

I can't duplicate your issue. sudo -E pacman -Syu with export http_proxy works for me. I would check your user and password is correct (I know it is silly but humour me). Test with curl or wget. If you can get one of those to work you update pacman.conf: XferCommand = /path/to/command %u If set, an external program will be used to download all ...

I found that eth0 was not the name of my interface. systemctl enable dhcpcd@enp0s3.service solved the problem. Thank you very much.

Make sure your virtual box has a network interface provided to the virtual OS. (Settings > Network > Adapter 1 > Attached to NAT). It is for sure not the only way to do it but it might be the easiest for you. Also make sure that your that your network adapter is up and uses DHCP. For example the file "interfaces" could look about like that $ cat ...

I ran sudo rfkill unblock bluetooth and it seems to work, however on github, Christopher Schramm reopened my ticket and still labeled bug, maybe he is investigating a bug I don't know of, perhaps the GTK bug. For me, all I care about is that it's working. Edit Christopher found an actual bug, look at blueman/plugins/mechanism/RfKill.py and change your ...

Same issues faced on centOS when checking the ffmpeg packages are installed and version : #/usr/local/bin/ffmpeg /usr/local/bin/ffmpeg: error while loading shared libraries: libavdevice.so.56: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory or # ldd `which ffmpeg` linux-vdso.so.1 => (0x00007fffb32d8000) libavdevice.so.56 => not ...

The 'documents' app in gnome is supposed to sync with online resources (google docs, ownCloud, oneDrive). I don't have 3.14, but in 3.10 the application is seriously slow and sucktastic. It's totally useless. https://help.gnome.org/users/gnome-documents/stable/

Found the solution you just have to run this command : sudo mysql_install_db --user=mysql --basedir=/usr/ --ldata=/var/lib/mysql/ source : Archlinux forums

Apparently, udev has changed the way it matches hardware in v220, which means that it was necessary to change keyboard:usb:v046DpC52B* to evdev:input:b0003v046Dp402D* (the b0003 is the bus-id of USB) What irritates me is that another product ID is now needed. Before v220, the ID C52B was used for all parts of the device (a multi-button mouse), however ...

I use some scripts to install Arch Linux sometimes. I wrote them, though, and I don't distribute them as I never bothered (nor particularly cared to bother) to harden them against all of the horrible things they might do to your computer in the event something went wrong. I imagine there are many out there like me - all of us selfishly hoarding our little ...

I recently tried just about every "Arch-based" distribution, feeling the same way you did. I wasted about as much time on each one of them as I would have setting up "the arch way." Save yourself the troubles that get installed by them and follow the guide. It'll be faster, leaner, and cleaner, especially since you've already done it before.

If you want to be supported by any contingent of the Arch Linux community, there are only two guides you can use to install Arch: The Beginners' Guide and The Official Installation Guide. Any other guide/script/tutorial used is not supported and never will be. Now then, that is not to say that you cannot use those scripts, but if you do, you are ...

You should check your swappiness value. Usually it is left at 60. It should be 10 or 15: cat /proc/sys/vm/swappiness You can change it on the fly with sudo bash -c "echo -e 10 > /proc/sys/vm/swappiness" and make it stick with sudo bash -c "echo 'vm.swappiness = 15' >> /etc/sysctl.conf" More information about swappiness can be found here: ...

Finally found a solution to this problem for me. https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=196427 In there, it gives instuction to put "needs_root_rights=yes" in /etc/X11/Xwrapper.config

I think what you need is fbcondecor ! here : https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Fbsplash#Console_backgrounds Oh, and you do need a patchd kernel.

If you use systemd, there should be a way with a .mount unit and a mount script ! See man systedmd.unit and man systemd.mount ! But generally, you'd avoid using ntfs or any microsoft tech on linux because windows and linux just do not work the same way, and ntfs isn't as well supported as other filesystems. Plus, it's less performant

My problem was that I used '\' in the code. In linux it must be '/' , so to make the code portable the line must be: #include <avr/io.h>

I've solved. I looked the log: backup framebuffer data, that it means that it changes framebuffer. I've thinked: "The framebuffer doesn't work maybe?". So I have try to change framebuffer using this: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Uvesafb and now it works. And I think this is also the only way, for ATI proprietary drivers, to really change TTY ...

ATI drivers are terrible on Linux. Try other driver versions, x and kernel too. Eventually it will work, but don't expect radeon to be stable at all. Everybody I know get continous X crashes or some artefacts, and performance is not better too.

A very brute force method to clean the entire log: $ sudo journalctl --vacuum-time=1seconds You can also use --vacuum-size as Michael mentoined.

I fixed it! Here are the commands I used this time: # parted /dev/sda (parted) mklabel msdos (parted) mkpart primary ext2 2MiB 2GiB (parted) mkpart primary ext4 2GiB 100% (parted) set 1 boot on (parted) q # mkfs.ext2 /dev/sda1 # cryptsetup --key-size 512 --hash sha512 --iter-time 5000 --use-random luksFormat /dev/sda2 # cryptsetup open --type luks ...

If it's standard for /dev/rtc0 to belong to the audio group in Arch, you could just add yourself to the audio group (using adduser; you'll need to log out and log back in for the change to be effective). Alternatively, you could add an ACL giving yourself access to the device (look up setfacl to see how to do this). Ideally you shouldn't need to access the ...

After experimenting with the BIOS settings I finally was able to get Linux to boot using WoL! Apparently I had to enable both Power On By PCI Devices and Power On By PCIE Devices for it to boot under Linux using WoL. To be sure that was the cause I tried all combinations. Just to be thorough I tried disabling them both to see whether that would make it ...

As I've found, the problem was related to motherboard ASRock FM2A88X-ITX+. I've replaced it by warranty, but after half of a year of usage the problem was reproduced by a new one. The further story is: I've bought another motherboard, and when I bring ASRock, that was resting for a month, to the warranty center, it was found, that it works Ok again.
