I have an auxillary optical drive. It has been plugged in for a long time, but I almost never use it. I just noticed it has a DVD in it. Apparently, I downloaded an ISO of Linux Mint 19.1 with plans of learning the OS. But just what 'type' of file is on the DVD? It doesn't seem to be usable in its present state. How can I render it usable, or should I just download another ISO? Properties says this is a CDFS File system. Thanks ![Linux_Mint.png](/attachments/large/4/630a669f8e0f6b4b0f285be89ba237d8.png)

I want to see your suggestions on comparing CPanel and FASTPANEL. I used CPanel for some time but later I changed to FASTPANEL which is absolutely free but provides you with the same opportunities. Also FASTPANEL's design looks much better than CPANEL's one. So now I can't understand why people pay for CPanel. What panel do you guys use and why?

hello dear community, first of all - i hope that my beginner-question will fit into this sub-forum.  I hope so.  Servo Control  with Micropython - with the ESP 8266 ...- compared to Arduino  I work with young kids and I'm always looking for economical platforms to build intriguing projects. While we can say that Arduino clones are pretty cheap, it uses the C/C++ language that the kids are not familiar with. This is pretty challenging. Also and furthermore, it doesn't have a built-in WiFi which is a must for all the IoT projects that i have in mind. On the …

dear community working with Micropython - which ecosystem to choose - ESP 8266 or ESP 32? I work with Kids. I'm always looking for economical platforms to build intriguing projects. there are systematical decisions: in earlier times i use Arduino and Raspberry Pi for the projects because the eco-sytems of Arduino and Raspi support rich options to combine. While Arduino clones are cheap, it uses the C/C++ language. that kids are not familiar with. and - yes it doesn't have a built-in WiFi-support. But that is pretty important for me. WiFi-Support is a must for all the IoT projects i …

Write a shell script to create a directory called “page1” and ask the user if he/she wants to copy a file to TESTING directory. You should find out that the file has read, write and execute permission. If the file has write permission then copy the file to the directory; denied otherwise. Suppose we have a file called ‘WelcomeHome’ with 100 lines of hotel names, each name on a line. Write a script to print the hotel names from line number 20 to line number 30 inclusive. Store the results in a file called ‘ListNumbers’. Sort the file in alphabetical …

I've discovered a weird problem with my Linux Mint-system (Linux Mint 18). After rebooting my system (or restarting as well) I got the GRUB menu, but my keyboard is not responding... So I have to wait for the timeout to get my system booted. The keyboard is wired to the computer through an USB-connection. So it's not wireless. And it works OK as soon as my system has booted.. (?). I have installed/loaded Linux kernel 4.4.142, 4.4.143 and 4.4.145. When running kernel 4.4.142 Virtualbox and VMWare Workstation works as it should, but when I try to use 4.4.143 or 4.4.145 …

What I like to know is if network programs still use this file? I can comment out http port 80 without any effects on firefox: ># http 80/tcp ># http 80/udp Then I can delete out /etc/services without no serious effects on the system: >sudo rm -v /etc/services The best of what I know is to manually enable/disable network services with systemd: >sudo systemctl enable NAME >sudo systemctl disable NAME The next question is how would I get the list of network services to enable/disable all in one config/script file on linux mint?

How do I start a MonoDevelop software program as a system service on Windows, Linux, and Mac? Windows appears to not have a system service setting. I have a WCF service that essentially runs from command line. Even if I have to run from command line, I will need to be able to start the command line server on startup. Apologies for the weird tech, all you have to do is compile MonoDevelop for windows as per the instructions, and when you have a good WCF service you need to remember to set up the project as conventional command line …

Hello, I currently have a RedHat Linux version 6.4 running on a physical server (HP). However, recently it has started to show a failing disk problem, with some failures at software level as well like the terminal not opening properly, and while waiting for a new replacement disk to be made available, I would like to be able to backup a whole image of the server, and eventually run it on VirtualBox or VMWare should the disk fail completely. Any tool (free preferably) or manual steps which can be useful in my case? Thanks.

It's literally going to be a "mirror mirror on the wall" type thing.

I love to play games and till now I have found out only windows based games and gaming platforms (for PC) there are no or very little games, and very little is thought about game development with linux OS's why so?? Why do people like to develop games for windows only/ play games on windows only, while just another type of Linux Kernel based OS viz Android has so many games/gamers/game developers.

I have a script that uses grep to extract data from a file. It works but I am now trying to modify the script for pipeline use. If I use the commands: `cat file | myScript.sh` there is an error because the data reaches myScript.sh as it was collected by an echo command (`grep: LINE: No such file or directory`). Is there a way to pass 'file' as an argument to myScript.sh so that grep can work as it was originally meant?

About 3 days ago. My laptop started behaving strangely (I'm on it, right now). I let it fall couple of times, but that was really some time ago about 3 months. Everything worked fine, no errors, crashes, "instant deaths". But recently, as said, 3 days ago. Laptop popped me out a message on pre-Windows level (looks like BIOS), telling me literally " > RTC battery is low. > Press F2 key to set date/time. So I thought, okay, I will set the time and go on with my life. But then I went in a game (lateron I found out …
