Having issues booting from USB connected SSD and disabling this in the Linux Kernal seems to solve the issues of the disk becoming unavailable.
Edit /etc/default/grub and change the following line:
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash usbcore.autosuspend=-1"
I'm currently testing Mint18.2 and have run into a number of issues with Chrome. It initially started with corruption issues in Youtube.
After investigation I discovered that the hardware acceleration had been disabled. By adding the following switches to the 'exec' lines in /opt/google/chrome/google-chrome I was able to force all the acceleration options on:
I added these to the file by editing it with root (sudo) options. I suspect the file will be overwritten on update. There seems to be an environment variable for chromium which allows you to set command line options to pass to chromium without editing files, but I can't tell if this works for Chrome yet.
Edit: Edge still uses GB of memory and eventually crashes and returns to the start page before completing three runs of the test. Not sure if this is an Edge issue, or a combination of Edge and Sophos client v10.7. The same behaviour was seen with Sophos v10.6.
Very interesting article on how to get vStorage up and running under Docker within VirtualBox. I managed to get a single node up easily but there were a few errors on adding the second node. vStorage seems to be a virtual storage solution that's able to replicate across disks, servers and locations while supporting compression, dedupe and encryption.
The line 'gzip -dc ovshc_unstable_img.tar.gz | docker load' should read 'gzip -dc ovshc_unstable_img.tar.gz | sudo docker load' and the URL to access the GUI should read https://IP_Address_of_VM.
Starting the second node seems to hang on the command 'sudo ./ovscluster.sh join ovshc2 10.250.0.2/16' hung with the status 'Status: Downloaded newer image for docker.openvstorage.org/ovshc/unstable:latest4417288f5ad21f5577e3fb4fe6ba25f4af0e71c277ab4d2cf554521c517469e6' and nothing else seems to happen after this.
I'd really like to see a tutorial to set this up on a physical Ubuntu server with RDMA but I can't seem to leave a comment on the blog. :(
