Tip of the Week:
Use the fdisk command to find the device name for your USB Drive:
sudo fdisk -l
Install cryptsetup package on your system:
sudo apt install cryptsetup
Set up a new dm-crypt device in LUKS encryption mode:
sudo cryptsetup luksFormat /dev/sdb
Open the device and setup mapping with name provided (e.g. USBDrive in this example):
sudo cryptsetup luksOpen /dev/sdb USBDriv
Verify the new virtual block device mapper:
ls -arlt /dev/mapper | tail
Run ext4 filesystem directly on that device:
sudo mkfs -t ext4 /dev/mapper/USBDrive
Mount the device your filesystem:
sudo mount /dev/mapper/USBDrive /USBDrive
Verify the the mapper is properly mounted using the df command:
df -h /USBDrive/
Need I say more?
I’m really interested to see how the LTT Linux experiment goes.
Mail-in-a-Box and other alternatives like mailcow.
Yes, there is some work involved to get Microsoft and Gmail to accept your email but after that, these self hosted services require minimal maintenance.
I’ll second that. Especially when compared to running (and maintaining) Exchange Servers for mail - linux mail servers are great…
I hope they don’t have issues and tell the world that windows is better. Hopefully Anthony will stop this happening.
I was a bit disappointed that openSUSE wasn’t on his list of distributions to try and I wasn’t real tickled about his poopooing on Fedora but that’s all good. I am just glad he is doing this and maybe after the NEXT steam survey, Linux will bump up to 2%. That could even be the criticle mass point?
