Comment Post #290503 Muss es in Vim sein? Könntest du nicht ein Skript erstellen das alle Dateien im Projekt prüft und automatisch iconv anwendet, bei denen die UTF16 kodiert sind? Vielleicht verstehe ich auch das Problem nicht ganz. Warum muss es genau in Vim sein? Ich meine du: 1. Bearbeitest eine Datei A mit Pro...

Comment Post #290218 This is a crucial information we need for a appropriate answer, since there can be (and most likely will be) a difference between filesize and the space used by that file. And you have to make sure you check all files (including hidden file and files that are inaccessible for the normal user). So ...

Question How to dump a MariaDB while mariadb.service is stopped, to move the database to a different server?
A MariaDB server is installed on a Linux server. The MariaDB service is currently stopped, so no client can connect to it. How to create a SQL-dump of all databases without starting the service? The plan was to disable the MariaDB service so that no new writes to the database can be made (that hav...

Comment Post #290178 > you would not have to be concerned about a client writing to the database after dump is done, would you? As far as i see, that was mentioned in the question. Or isn't > so that no new writes to the database can be made clear enough that the question is about a way to get a dump and preven...

Comment Post #290178 Sorry, i don't see how this makes the question different. In both cases i asked how to create a dump without having writes to the database that aren't in the dump. The answer from Canina doesn't answer that, as she said at the beginning.

Comment Post #290179 Thank you for your answer. But when i understand you correctly, a client may write to the database after `mariadb-dump` is done and that will not be included in the dump? Is there a way to prevent that? I was thinking about a read only mode, but i am not sure if the clients handle this well.

Question How to create a dump of a complete MariaDB how the data is at a single point in time?
A MariaDB server is installed on a Linux server. How can a dump of the complete database be made, how it is at a single point in time, while preventing write access to the database during the dump? Writes to the database during dumping should be prevented to prevent inconsistencies.

Comment Post #289917 "The question does not match what you are asking in comments" My question is how to configure the datetime format. With that i mean, how can i set a specific format, for example a string that is used in `strftime()`. I don't see a difference from the comment to the original question. It is very co...

Comment Post #289917 Don't understand that. I was asking about the time format. How is that bind to a locale? Shouldn't that be local independent? I want to use a format similar to ISO8601 regardless of where i am. How to set the time format as `%Y-%m-%d_%T`?

Comment Post #289720 I was talking about the options of the ntfs partition not the one for ext4. When for example `fmask=0777` but `noexe` is set on a ntfs mount, you can not execute any file from that partition. However when you then copy a file from there to a other partition which supports unix permissions and does...

Comment Post #289720 There is `noexec` and there is `umask` and `fmask`. They are independent from each other. You can give executable permission with `fmask` but set `noexec`, and the files will be listed with executable permission but you can't execute it. Maybe this is the reason? Maybe the executable flag was set (wi...

Comment Post #289720 > When you migrate data from an NTFS partition, everything will likely be marked executable by default Most likely, they are non-executable by default. Which is more annoying but a security feature. (See also the mounting options `exec` `noexec` and `umask` for NTFS). > Modern systems assume U...

Answer A: Linux distro and documentation for a Windows power user wanting to become a Linux power user without spending a lifetime in the process?
Distro TL;DR: Mint is good for you. There are many choices and many of them are good. As long as it is somewhat popular and not a specialized distro it should be good enough. Don't worry about it too much, you can change most things later, like the desktop environment, if it turns out the distr...

Comment Post #289315 I learned a lot about the basics how to use Linux (mostly command line) as a power user by reading "Wie werde ich UNIX-Guru?: Einführung in UNIX, Linux und Co (Galileo Computing)" from Arnold Willemer. It is a bit dated but most things still apply. I didn't found translations in any other language...

Answer A: In FreeCAD, can you set units per-document?
No you can't do that on a project file basis with the current FreeCAD version. See also the FreeCAD discussion about this topic. But honestly, using non-metric units is a stupid idea anyway, don't do that. Use metric for everything. There shouldn't be anything non-metric. One workaround is to u...
