TL;DR: Best distro for seniors?
My grandpa, like I'm sure many grandpa's across the land, has once again junked up and broken his PC so instead of him going to get a new computer like he wants to, I'm going to wipe his drive and just install linux on his computer. I've used Ubuntu in the past and currently am running Red Hat. I'm just curious if there are any distros that people have found more successful with the older, less tech savvy generations. I'm planning on going with Ubuntu unless there is a better one I don't know about.submitted by UND_mtnman
CyanogenMod, the popular alternative Android operating system for smartphones, has always been for people who wanted a newer version of Android for their older smartphones. Now, for the first time, Cyanogen, CyanogenMod's parent company, in partnership with Oppo, a high-end consumer electronics company, are about to release the first dedicated CyanogenMod smartphone: The OPPO N1.
Im trying to use rsysnc to transfer files from my main PC to my server. Once the files are transferred to my server I want to be able to move the files around on my PC and not have rsync send them again when I rerun rsync.
I think I can do this by having rsync write out a log file with just the names of the files it transfers. Then reference that same file as the exclude list.
I'm having trouble getting the format of the log file to be readable as an exclude list. It needs to only print out the file or folder names.
Here is the current command I'm running. rsync -avz --exclude-from=Desktop/file.txt --log-file=Desktop/file.txt --log-file-format=%i Desktop/Source Desktop/Destination
What do I need to do to make the log file only output the name of the files or folders?submitted by ryanth
