  • Hi all. I’m probably going to be around a lot less from now on. I am finding that a mix of several things is contributing to me being able to spend less and less time here and I am missing tons of posts and mentions etc. As well as increasing family commitments and the Tapatalk issues that are preventing me from keeping close to the forum, I am finding that my use of ZFS has pushed me away from Debian and towards Ubuntu - it’s the clear choice for me right now. It’s no longer the unstable child …

  • ZFS on Linux is very stable. It’s just that occasionally a kernel update causes an incompatibility with the ZoL stuff and you’ll reboot and notice your pool isn’t mounted. You need to wait a bit before moving kernels or use the Proxmox kernel. The main thing to remember is that the problem only causes your pool not to mount until you revert some of the files etc. Not that your pools are gone completely. It’s not really an issue if you don’t mind tinkering. ZFS itself though is solid. I wouldn’t …

  • I use ZFS which is different, but yeah, you want to disconnect your RAID, fresh install v4 then import that RAID. I don’t use that type of RAID though so you’ll need someone else to help there if you get stuck. You’ll obviously need to recreate your users and shares too and any services. There is probably a way to port some settings but I’m sure this is not recommended and may actually be more time consuming since there isn’t an automated procedure for 2 to 4.

  • Use a Debian ISO, then follow the guide to install OMV on top. The disk you cannot see for shared folders, is it the OS disk? This is not supported. Use a second disk for shares. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  • There is no upgrade path from 2 to 4. Fresh install. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  • I’m actually secretly hoping they’ll pump a load more functionality into the ‘apt’ command and beautify its output to look more like yum/dnf. Pigs might fly though. I too am less fond of yum/dnf than apt on usability, but yum has the best output I have seen. Better than pacman, better than zypp. It wins hands down for me on visual. I just don’t like a ton of other things about it. On the visual side, it’s the little things like the perfect percentage bar spacing regardless of columns etc that al…

  • Yeah.. what I said “It has fewer but sufficient command options” apt-get can do more. I personally use apt. I just thought the original comment was ridiculous. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  • Quote from Ruschi: “apt-get is old..” Oh dear. I can’t help but comment on this. Let’s hope you never need to use ls, mv, rm, cd, etc to name but a smattering of some of the oldest commands - and much older than apt-get. You’re confusing old with defunct. But apt-get can actually do more than apt so it’s not even that. Oh, and you missed an ‘apt’ between && and upgrade. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  • Do you mean you are virtualising OMV or you are using the virtual box OMV plugin? Edit: sorry just seen in your first post. The plugin. Hang on typing. Edit2: so if you only have 1 drive, ie your 240GB M2, it is not officially supported to have both your OS and your content on this one drive. You need one drive for your OS, and (an)other drive(s) for your stuff. I don’t use the virtual box plugin, but it undoubtedly works the same as everything else, and makes use of the shared folders section o…

  • It’s really down to personal preference. But if you’re in a position where you are asking, you’ll probably want a very simple partition setup without separating /home etc. So usually this will boil down to mostly root partition and some swap, usually equal to RAM unless you have a ton of it. Create a new partition Enter Max size minus amount of RAM. Ie. For 8GB of RAM and 240GB drive enter “232GB” > Primary > Beginning > Use As: BTRFS (leave all else, should already be set for root partition). Y…

  • Debian will never stop having ZFS and I can’t see the plugin disappearing either. If the default for OMV 5 is BTFRS, that’s not the end of the world. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  • Good. I wouldn’t be without ZOL and I wouldn’t use FreeBSD. Talking of which, looks like they’ll soon being using the ZOL code: I wonder if this will encourage major changes... the kind of changes that probably haven’t happened in order to maintain compatibility with FreeBSD? If the major players are all using the same code base, will pool shrinking and defragging finally arrive? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  • Quote from ryecoaaron: “Interesting -…=ZFS-On-Linux-5.0-Problem” No doubt Ubuntu will sort it out and the rest will follow. They won’t want to lose one of their biggest features. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  • Android apps leaking data to Facebook

    ellnic - - Off-Topic


    I’ve been thinking a lot about this since I read the article and findings over a week ago. It’s probably old news by now, but just in case it’s been missed: Privacy international have used a MITM proxy to see what a collection of popular android apps are doing without user knowledge. They found that a lot of them send data to Facebook as soon as the app is open (over 60%), regardless of if you have a Facebook account. I verified this using a popular firewall app and some of the apps mentioned - …

  • First post I made about this on the Tapatalk forums is Aug 24th and it predates that. It’s easy to forget how long this has actually been going on for! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  • By now = at this point. Ie. It’s not resolved yet. Ergo, it’s taking too long. It’s at least 4-5 months off the top of my head. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  • I was hoping this would have been resolved by now Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  • I’ve drunk way too much already so will probably be too fuzzy to post anything coherent tomorrow morning. So, best wishes to all - enjoy the festivities. Have a good one! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
