Requesting removable storage assistance

Reddit - 1 hour 44 min ago

I'm running Raspbian (debain wheezy, jessie) on a 16GB microSD card.

When I mount a 2TB external drive, all's well until I meet/exceed the space alotted on the internal SD card

aka, when I toss 14gb of data onto the 2TB drive /dev/root is maxed out.

Is there something I can do so that I can use the full 2TB of storage space on the external drive without comromising space on the little baby SD card?

I am using the external for backing up mobile phones with adb pull.

Thanks for any assistance.

Linux mint will not allow me to change users

Reddit - Thu, 2016-07-28 22:53

I'm currently using Linux Mint 18 and have had it installed for about two days on a new hard drive. Last night I made an account for my girlfriend and set up a log in screen. Everything worked fine. Now fast forward to this morning, Linux freezes up on the log in screen and goes black. Then I'm automatically logged into my girlfriends account. It won't allow me to log out, or switch users. Everytime I try I'm given a black screen, and then right back to her account. This is my first time using Linux, and I've loved it till now. Any help would be appreciated.

What makes it (/dev/tty1-7) a virtual terminal?

Reddit - Thu, 2016-07-28 22:36

So apparently we call it a virtual terminal/console because these things existed?

But this is what I don't get. When you look at what constituted a terminal your average computer has all that and more, we're not emulating a completely different and unrelated platform. It is the native way to physically operate the system. So what's so virtual about it?

When I think 'virtual' terminal I think pseudo terminals or emulators like screen, ssh, xterm, etc.

XMPP Remote Command & Control Linux Bot/Client?

Reddit - Thu, 2016-07-28 22:35

I've been looking and I see many projects but nothing that seems to fit what I specifically am looking for. Basically I'm seeing if I can have a private XMPP server run with multiple linux machines connected for cli remote access through the bot/client.

Does anyone know of a XMPP bot/client that:

  • Can be daemonized
  • Can connect to XMPP with auth
  • Can pass commands to a shell
  • Can capture return and send reply
  • Does not require many depends or is self-contained
  • Does not need every command programmed in (pass it to a shell!)

All of the projects I've found seem to have been made as a chat bot first, and any commands that you want to run locally you need to specifically write them in.

I doubt something exists that is what I'm looking for, I just wanted to ask the community before I start playing around with making my own.
