Reddit: A smarter or more space-conscious way or storing backups than 'cp daily.0 daily.1;rsync *network* daily.0'?
Obviously it's slightly more complicated than that. But that's the gist of the current implementation of our backup solution. It duplicates daily.0 to daily.1, then rsyncs all relevant network shares into daily.0. Then we keep a certain number of daily, weekly and monthly backups.
Thing is, I wonder if there might be a better way, or if we're really just doing it right. The whole process takes hours because even our small small company has enough data that daily.0 is about 6 terabytes.
6 terabytes copies nightly. That just seems insane. Not at an enterprise level. But for one little backup server for a small company? That's a LOT of data.
Is there something more sophisticated that could be done?
In a year of being here I never questioned the setup. You know...
But now I'm finally getting over that mindset and realizing this is my network now (for better or worse). and I'd like to be able to defend any choices, and be confident in how it's all setup.submitted by Sysa_Dmin

It installed really easy, and with lightDM display manager, Kernel 3.18, Gnome 3.14, pacmanXG, and yaourt/AUR by default.
Installed Catalyst 14.12 (Omega) from AUR patched for kernel 3.18. Yaourt catalyst-total, then aticonfig --initial.
Installed Octopi via AUR and it took care of QT4 dependencies for CCC. Enabled multilib. So far everything is perfect. Firefox Aurora (37) is in AUR :).
Really liking Antergos so far. Or I should say Arch. But the setup with Antergos IMO is really good.submitted by grndzro

Daniel Vetter of Intel's Open-Source Technology Center sent in yet another Intel drm-next pull request to David Airlie for accepting into the 3.20 DRM-Next Git tree before he closes off the tree for accepting new feature code (Airlie's change for the past few kernels has been to stop accepting new code a few weeks before the N-1 release). With this latest Git pull request, the changes aren't too exciting:
Oracle CTO Larry Ellison wants a bigger piece of the server market and is taking direct aim at Cisco's UCS to grow share. Oracle's new X5 Engineered Systems portfolio is a bid by the company to provide lower-cost two-socket converged infrastructure systems running Linux at very competitive price points.
zenwalkToday in Linux news, Jack Germain has a review of Zenwalk and Dedoimedo.com tries to review Chakra. With the pro-32 bit architecture folks seemingly winning the argument, Bruce Byfield weights in saying what's surprising is that it's taken so long to deprecate. Elsewhere, Softpedia.com is reporting that Linus Torvalds patched the kernel to fix a Witcher 2 issue.
I've got a webcam setup to take stills every 10 seconds because there's some random cat coming into our house and eating the food. Using a raspberry pi I send those files to a larger machine for processing.
Problem is. Over night I get a load of images and barring converting it to a video and watching it all for a single frame flash of when this critter walks past I've got no way of telling if he's been in.
Is there a way for me to compare multiple images and to highlight using ffmpeg, mencoder, any other tool when there's been a large delta change in X image versus Y image?
