NTFS stands for New Technology File System and is developed by Microsoft for use on their Windows operating systems. NTFS is not normally used on Linux systems, but has been the default file system on Windows for many years. Linux users are probably used to seeing drives with the ext4 file system, which is ordinarily the default and certainly the most widespread in the Linux realm.
There are a few tools at your disposal for checking the disk space on a Raspberry Pi system. These tools and Linux commands can be used to check a storage device’s capacity (such as that of your micro SD card) and the size of the files on it, or just to check the size of a particular directory or file. We will show you how to get a visual representation of how the total storage space is being used on your Raspberry Pi, as well as a few commands that you can enter into the terminal to quickly find the relevant storage stats on your Raspberry Pi.
A USB drive is an easy way to give yourself some extra storage space on your Raspberry Pi, since the micro SD card often does not have enough space to hold all the necessary files we need to keep. Using a USB drive is also a handy way to quickly transfer files to your Raspberry Pi from another device, or vice versa. It is often necessary to do a little configuration before using a USB drive, such as formatting the device, mounting it, etc. In this tutorial, we will go over some tips and trick for using a USB drive with a Raspberry Pi.
Creating a static website and hosting it has never been easier, thanks to modern web development tools such as Jekyll. Jekyll is a static site generator powered by Ruby that allows you to create fast, secure, and easily maintainable websites. When combined with Nginx, a powerful HTTP server and reverse proxy, you have a powerful and flexible website deployment mechanism. This guide explains how to set up Jekyll with Nginx as a reverse proxy on Debian and Ubuntu systems.
In this article, we explore an efficient bash script,
debian_firmware_setup.sh, that simplifies the process of integrating non-free firmware, such as Wi-Fi drivers, into your Debian installation. The script automates the preparation of a USB stick by formatting it, downloading a specified version of Debian non-free firmware, and extracting it onto the USB stick. This results in a ready-to-use USB device that can be deployed during a Debian installation process, thereby easing the setup of non-free firmware elements and reducing the hassle often associated with manual firmware integration.
Creating a bootable USB drive is often necessary when you want to install or repair an operating system. This guide provides detailed steps on how to create a bootable USB drive for Windows 10 or 11 using Linux (both Debian and RPM-based distributions).
Our handy script does all the heavy lifting, making this task a breeze. The script operates by formatting the USB drive, and then copying the ISO file to the USB drive.
exFAT stands for Extensible File Allocation Table and is a format made by Microsoft for use on devices like USB flash drives. In general, you do not hear a lot about exFAT these days, but it remains a viable format that is compatible with Windows, MacOS, and Linux, so it is a good choice for a flash drive that you plan on using with a variety of different systems. Some manufacturers even use exFAT as the default format for their SD cards or other products.
Part of the official requirements for Kubernetes is to disable swap space completely before attempting to launch Kubernetes. In some recent patch notes, Kubernetes has begun implementing support for swap space in some scenarios, but it is not fully supported. The official reason for not supporting swap space is because it is hard to predict how a pod might utilize memory when swap is enabled.
Implementing a disk quota will prevent users or groups from using too much storage space on a Linux system. This is very useful on systems such as file servers that allow many users to connect and store data, as it ensures that no particular user can utilize an unexpected amount of storage and interrupt storage or processes on the server by making it run out of disk space. Linux administrators should always put a quota on the maximum storage usage for users, as well as other user environment limits like max number of processes and open files.
The Linux operating system gives us many ways to measure the performance of our computer, including individual components such as the hard drive. There are multiple tools for the job, and it is also possible to use built in tools and create our own test to measure real results. In this tutorial, we will see how to use a Bash script to test the transfer speed of a hard drive on a Linux system. We will also learn about some other tools which can supplement our Bash script and give us and give us additional data points when it comes to the transfer speed of our hard drive, including read and write speed.
No Space Left on Device error on a Linux system means that the partition you are trying to write data to or save files on lacks sufficient space for the operation. There are several things that users can do to resolve the error, all of which involve either freeing up additional space on the partition or extending the total size of available space. In this tutorial, we will show you how to resolve the
No Space Left on Device, and go over some basic Linux commands that can help us to identify the problem.
