Linux manages sound and display differently. You normally only get access to the screen if you've logged in locally, whereas sound is often available to all processes running on the system. A GUI program knows where to display from the DISPLAY environment variable. That variable tells it which X server to contact. If one user is logged in locally on a ...
All you have to do is set your $DISPLAY in your ssh session to match your desktop's display. You could echo $DISPLAY from a terminal on the desktop, and then export $DISPLAY="what above said" in your ssh session.
Unix lets you mount filesystems, including remote filesystems, under directories on your system. This is similar to the way you can attach a remote filesystem as a drive on your windows machine, e.g. creating a Z: that refers to \\server\folder. Instead of using drive letters, we have directories that refer to filesystems. So /folder could be a remote mount ...
I changed from rsnapshot to backintime exactly becuase of this problem. With backintime directories are named by date. They both use hardlinks, but backintime is a little smarter in that if nothing changes it doesn't bother making all the links. One difference is backintime changes the permissions of the files to be read only and save the permissions in a ...
There is no “best way”. It all depends on your setup and requirements. One way that also works if the backup directories contains lots of files would be to use snapshots on a lower level and send them to the remote server. ZFS can do that and probably LVM as well, but I never used that. You didn't state your file system or if you use a volume manager, ...
If you can ssh to the system where the ISO file resides you can do this: ssh syswithiso 'cat /path/to/file.iso' | growisofs -Z /dev/dvd=/dev/fd/0 NOTE: The /dev/fd/0 is the file descriptor for STDIN. References Hard Drive Cloning in Linux
If you have control over both systems, you could share the data with NFS, mount it on your system, and burn your image just as you would if the data was local. There's also sshfs, which lets you mount a remote machine's filesystem using ssh as the data bearer.
