What Are You Doing Right Now



  • I learned something very valuable last night - don't let Fedora server partition disks automatically. I set up a Nextcloud instance with a 3Tb disk. Fedora automatically set up the /root as 15Gb and left the rest in Never Never Land. I was going to use Gparted and move the partition but just started over. Sad part is I didn't check it sooner. I already exported and moved to another host. Lesson learned.

    It uses LVM by default... so it's super easy to increase that 15GB to whatever you want.... you don't need gparted, you use the built-in LVM commands.

    But this is a good thing. You can assign all that unused space somewhere outside of the /var/www/html/nextcloud directory like /data.

    Do you need a refresher on using LVM? I bet that space has already been assigned a Volume Group.



  • It showed the 2.91Tb as a drive if you looked with the parted command in Fedora but if you df-h it just showed / as 15Gb. I got so used to using Ubuntu for everything and have slowly been migrating away to Fedora. I am no expert and will be the first to admit it.

    Take a look at vgdisplay. I'm betting there is a lot of space available that you can use.

    IE:

    lvcreate -l 95%FREE -n "new_lv_name" vgname_from_vgdisplay
    mkfs.xfs /dev/vg_name_from_vgdisplay/new_lv_name

    lvdisplay

    Do a lvextend --help. Lots of options!

    Same with VG:

    I didn't recommend lvextend, just because with Nextcloud I think it's better to separate the system from your data storage. At least makes managing things like backups of the data easier anyway.

    You normally should have a dedicated disk for nextcloud data anyway.



  • Yeah, then just do that then.

    No reason to reinstall.



  • Finished a Airtame demo call. It doesn't say on there website, but instead of 30 day free trial, we have a 60 day trial since we are an Educational institution.



  • @black3dynamite Seems like everyone leaves the data in the default location. I can't recall anyone moving it outside of /var/www/html/nextcloud/data on most things i have read including @JaredBusch guides.

    I mounted my /dev/vg_data1/lv_data to /var/www/html/nextcloud/data.

    sudo bash -c 'echo "/dev/vg_data1/lv_data  /var/www/html/nextcloud/data  xfs  defaults  0  0" >> /etc/fstab'

    Yikes. I still have a cough from a horrible head and chest cold that started on December 19th.

    I just can't.... It's too easy.


  • Service Provider

    Because I have a dedicated VM for Nextcloud, I just mounted the entire /var/www/html directory to a different partition, though it is sitll on the same vhdx.

    /dev/fedora/data /var/www/html                    ext4    defaults        1 2

    ouch. We're facing a big wave of influenza here. Austria's stock of vaccine is already depleted.

    As for me, well, I guess it's just a simple cold.

    This year's flu strains are bad. the vaccines are only ~25% effective. But we all have had our shots here. Because a 25% bonus on the dice is better than a 0% bonus.

    That number is inflated from what I heard. I was hearing as low as 10% for this year.

    How effective are they in "normal" years? I thought it was only like 50% at best anyway, but I truly have no idea.

    From what I have heard, our vaccine is more or less useless. It's some subtype this year that's not covered in the standard vaccine.

    It's always a bet based on estimates. And like @JaredBusch said: You can have your glass half full or half empty, your choice 😉



  • Flu vaccine is only for the elderly, enfeebled, and others with compromised immune systems... If you're reasonably healthy, there is no reason to get a flu shot (unless you secretly want to get sick as fuck for no reason). I had one when I was 18, and you'd literally have to kill me to get me to take another one. Never been sicker in all my life (and that counts the times I had the flu before that BS shot).

    I've never had the flu either. I've been lucky that I've always managed to avoid flu shots.

    That is totally untrue and not how the human immune system works.

    I've never had a flu shot, and I probably never will.

    If I ever got the flu, I didn't notice or didn't get sick enough to care. Same with others in my family.



  • Had the flu last week. Didn't get the flu shot. If I had gotten the flu shot, would it have protected me from the flu? Probably not. Probably won't ever get the flu shot either. Unless I'm elderly or immune system is compromised.

    Ok, you can have my flu shot, I don't need or want it. I wouldn't take another one with a gun to my balls. You have fun with your bullshit pseudo-vaccine, I'll stay over here without it and remain healthy.

    I used to never get it. Several years ago, I decided to. I ended up feeling like I had the flu but it was mild. I also noticed a strange painful sensitivity on the surface of my skin all the way down the arm on which I had received the shot. I would say it is similar to what people describe shingles as but not the intensity. This lasted for about a month. Because it lasted so long I didn't think they were related.

    The next year, I got the flu shot and experienced the same pain/sensitivity. It didn't start til several days afterward so I didn't put it together. The 3rd year, I finally realized that it was being caused by the flu shot.

    That was the end of me getting the flu shot.

    Flu shot every year for 20 years, no flu. Go figure. My Brother, gets flu shot, sicker than a dog for weeks. The only thing I can come up with is possibly a violent allergic reaction.
