Set up rDNS

Linux Questions - Sun, 05/15/2022 - 11:45
My domain is registered at Network Solutions. My ISP was WOWWAY Business, but they've now been bought out by Breezline. As a consequence, I had to change my IP, gateway, etc. on my web/mail server. This also means that my reverse-DNS for the domain is no longer correct.

Do I have to have the ISP (Breezeline) set up the rDNS or can I just create a PTR record at Network Solutions?

cp won't copy more than 32Gb of a large file on the same SSD

Linux Questions - Sun, 05/15/2022 - 11:28
Hi folks,

I have a 70Gb file on an EXT4 volume in ~/folder1 that I want to copy to ~/folder2.

Code: cp -v ~/folder1/bigfile ~/folder2/bigfile generates this error:

Code: cp: error copying 'bigfile' to '~/folder2/bigfile': Input/output error The copy process fails when the destination file hits 32Gb in size (or thereabouts).

I've tried using rsync and rclone, and the same thing happens: the copying process fails at around 32Gb destination file size. The volume has 750Gb free space so I do not think it is a disk space problem. It seems like some internal limit is being hit but I haveno idea where to start looking for this.

The EXT4 volume is LUKS encrypted. I do not know whether this is relevant.

I noticed the problem when I was trying to migrate a VirtualBox .vdi file using VBoxManage. The source disk file is 70Gb and the migration failed repeatedly about half way through the migration process. It now seems like an OS problem rather than anything to do with VirtualBox because I cannot cp successfully. I'm not running out of disk space or inodes.

Can anyone suggest a way forward with this?

Hello, I am trying to play Dosbox games with Roland sounds and I am having some issues. I managed to get it work with Qsinth but somehow the music sounds terribly glitchy almost all the time. I've already try various soundfonts and there are minor changes between them but the same broken and glitchy sound.

Can't get Fedora 35 to authorize my wifi password connection

Linux Questions - Sun, 05/15/2022 - 10:25
I recently loaded Fedora 35 on my 32 bit Dell 5758 17" laptop. When I put in the password for the wifi connection I wanted the system won't accept the password. Instead, I get this msg: Authentication required. Passwords or encryption keys are required to access the wireless network.
I tried using other wireless connections that I use on other computers and double checked the passwords. It isn't a typing error.
I ran nmcli d show and nmcli connection show. The wlan card is there and when I ran rfkill, it's showing it as unblocked. I'm at a loss on what to do next to resolve this. The wlan card is a 3160gnw. It think it's an intel card. Any other suggestions?
Could this be a WPA supplicant problem. I haven't checked that out yet.

[15.0] Video not playing on Firefox after nvidia driver install

Linux Questions - Sun, 05/15/2022 - 09:59
I just upgraded my old 14.2 slack to the new 15.0 release. After upgrade I was able to play any videos from firefox (stock version), for instance on youtube, with my graphic session under nuoveau driver.

Then I installed:
Code: /var/log/packages/nvidia-legacy340-driver-340.108-x86_64-2_SBo
/var/log/packages/nvidia-legacy340-kernel-340.108_5.15.38-x86_64-1_SBo And now I cannot play any videos from youtube with firefox.
I also tried using konqueror and that browser seems to play youtube videos fine.

I also tried ffplay on some local videos and it works.

Where could be the issue?

Cant work out the regex for this

Linux Questions - Sun, 05/15/2022 - 09:00
Having trouble with a regex for this, I have a generated filename "_q_t__document.cpp" and I need to translate to "QT_document.cpp"
ie "_alpha" to uppercase alpha "__" to single "_".
Got this Code: echo "_q_t__document.cpp"|sed 's/_\([[:alpha:]]\)/\U\1/g'
QT_Document.cpp But I dont want the 'd' in document uppercased, just can't work it out, any ideas?
I can do it this way: Code: echo "_q_t__document.cpp"|sed 's/__/@##@/g;s/_\([[:alpha:]]\)/\U\1/g;s/@##@/_/g'
QT_document.cpp but it's a bit of a hack.

Does usb support control (IN) transfer with wLength = 0?

Linux Questions - Sun, 05/15/2022 - 08:28
Recently, I'm learning usb protocol with libusb and linux gadget (g_zero). When I do the following control transfer, the usb device just stucks.

Code: libusb_control_transfer(devh
  0xC0, // bRequestType (IN, device to host)
  0x5C, // bRequest
  0x0000, // wValue
  0x0000, // wIndex
  NULL, // buffer
  0, // buffer length
  1000 // timeout
) I also use a usb analyzer to monitor the usb packets, it show as follow:

Code: Setup Stage:
    SETUP Packet
    DATA0 Packet: c0 5c 00 00 00 00 00 00
    ACK Packet
Data Stage:
    nothing here, then follow immediately with
Status Stage:
    OUT Packet
    DATA1 Packet (length: 0)
    NAK Packet
PING Packet // then PING Packet infinitely After that, I search the usb 2.0 specification and found (in ch 8.5.3) that the specification describes only three type of control transfer:

Code:             Setup                      Data                      Status
            Stage                      Stage                    Stage
            /---------\  /------------------------------------\  /-------\
Control    <Setup (0)>  <Out (1)>  <Out (0)>  ...  <Out (0/1)>  <In  (1)>
Write          DATA0      DATA1      DATA0          DATA0/1      DATA1

Control    <Setup (0)>  <In  (1)>  <In  (0)>  ...  <In  (0/1)>  <Out (1)>
Read            DATA0      DATA1      DATA0          DATA0/1      DATA1

            Setup        Status
            Stage        Stage
            /---------\  /-------\
No-Data    <Setup (0)>  <IN  (1)>
Control        DATA0      DATA1 So I guess maybe usb doesn't support Ctrl-IN-0 transfer?

Change in advice for creating initrd

Linux Questions - Sun, 05/15/2022 - 06:11
I have always created initrd according the instructions in /boot/README.initrd

Quote: mkinitrd -c -k 5.15.16 -m ext3 -f ext3 -r /dev/sdb3 Now on updating the kernel in accordance with the the recent slackware-security email I read

Quote: # /usr/share/mkinitrd/ -k 5.15.38 | bash This seems to be packing a few more modules into the initrd. What is happening here? Is this just a more foolproof method?

Started Using Linux Now have a deep luv for the under-rated OS

Linux Questions - Sun, 05/15/2022 - 04:21
Currently I have Ubuntu 22.04 with krnl 5.15 and it is the dream of a perfect OS. Have installed a virtual machine for python and will be utilizing Docker containers for TensorFlow 2 technologies. Windows was duel booting off a flash temp drive until one day it wouldnt allow me back in after and update so i just went ahead and did the full install instead to Ubuntu 20.04 and that's when the deep love affair for Linux started. Thanks for the addition for future programming and web servers,Email servers, and software dev server projects i will partake my up and coming skills to practice.

Help with Anki error (Using Slackbuilds for 15)

Linux Questions - Sun, 05/15/2022 - 04:21

I have encountered this error with the latest build of Anki in Slackbuilds. I went through the "sqg -p anki" route to build the queue & installed it.

I already had previous version of anki installed & working wonderfully. On upgrade, I am facing this error.

Any help would be appreciated.
