2013-11-16 18:26:50 -0500 asked a question Backup Multiple Drives

I want to backup my PC to an external drive (4TB) currently I have: /dev/sdb (2TB) = /home /dev/sda (1TB) = everything else

I am open to suggestions as to backing up these drives. My requirement is that if my PC died I would be able to restore to two new hard drives exactly how they are now.

Is there any software that will backup an image so that when it restores I will get the same set up I have now?

Thanks for the response. The bottom option along with previous commentor statement helped solve my problem

Thats the one, thanks a lot. I was struggling with the logic of mounting in fstab. Problem solved.

Try using gnash

sudo yum install gnash gnash-plugin Restart your browser and all should be fine

You may want to try removing your current Adobe flash player

2013-10-01 18:28:28 -0500 asked a question Mount /home somewhere else


I just reinstalled Fed 19 (why? jsut to have a clean install).

Before the reinstall I had:

/dev/sda (partitioned) for the OS
/dev/sdb1 as a full My Documents or /home

What I would like to do now is the clean install on the main hard drive to point to my documents. What I mean is, when in nautilus and I click on the home button it takes me to the drive with all my stuff.

here are the results to sudo blkid

/dev/sda1: SEC_TYPE="msdos" UUID="1D54-736D" TYPE="vfat" PARTLABEL="EFI System Partition" PARTUUID="3a8af40d-f5fc-47ca-bbc8-97e96ac3873f" 
/dev/sda2: UUID="4dbce2e0-112d-4125-8e38-0f6a0cb928bb" TYPE="ext4" PARTUUID="3ce36098-d5a9-419b-9d97-03766fcd70f0"

/dev/sdb1: LABEL="mydocs" UUID="e4cd9e8a-93c0-4bf4-a083-3d1e091e9ecb" TYPE="ext4"

and here is my fstab

UUID=a4e0fe1d-af67-462e-bc82-139d8fb973bc /                       ext4    defaults        1 1
UUID=4dbce2e0-112d-4125-8e38-0f6a0cb928bb /boot                   ext4    defaults        1 2
UUID=1D54-736D          /boot/efi               vfat    umask=0077,shortname=winnt 0 0
UUID=8be07e39-5182-4507-8767-c34588b395d3 /media/home/paul        ext4    defaults        1 2
UUID=d7894893-61ff-49ea-bd98-3b21de6b870f swap                    swap    defaults        0 0
LABEL=mydocs /media/home ext4 defaults,noatime 1 2

So I need:

  1. LABEL=mydocs to mount at boot

  2. when I click on Home in nautilus it should open up a view of all stuff currently in there.

Can anyone help please?

2013-09-10 19:26:12 -0500 answered a question Home Network for 2 Fedora 19 computers

Thanks all for the help. Sorry, busy weekend with the kids but I got it to work. I cannot really specifically say what it was but the: systemctl enable sshd.service systemctl start sshd.service helped but also I never had NFS installed for some reason.

To elaborate on why I needed this, I wanted to have all my documents on my main PC but be able to open/edit them from my Laptop. Its mainly PDF and Libreoffice as I am studying (distance learning) so the ability to be away from my main computer and have access to the files was needed.

Thanks for the responses. I appreciate the clarification, I never removed the firewall as I figured that is a bad idea.

I will check out the firewall settings tomorrow and test it. Too tired and frustrated with it tonight. Will update tomorrow.

2013-09-05 16:37:34 -0500 asked a question Home Network for 2 Fedora 19 computers


I have two computers running Fedora 19. One is a desktop, the other my laptop. They connect to the internet and homenetwork on a wireless router.

All I want to do is if I am at my laptop I want to access files on my desktop and vice versa. I've googled and looked around and it seems like there is a plethora of ways to do this but most people are asking too specifically, like they have a VPN going through a virtual box etc etc. All I want is to access both computers. What is the easiest way of doing this?

Something simple please, I have tried reading the Samba instructions but it makes no sense to me. So if anyone can offer advice without me getting a doctorate in computer networking ;) to be able to understand whats going on.

I tried this and it installs fine, but as soon as I click on a movie to play it my computer restarts. Is there anything I can do to find a crash report? Anyone else getting this Fedora 19 x86_64

2013-08-16 17:29:06 -0500 answered a question It says i already installed flash player but all my browsers doesn't have flash player.

Just install gnash (sudo yum install gnash.x86_64) No need for proprietary Adobe stuff. And also gnash-plugin.x86_64
