How to create a bootable Windows USB Flash Dri…

How to create a bootable Windows USB Flash Drive using Fedora?:

Hello.

I’m in the middle of nowhere and am very bored. I want to install windows to be able to play some games.

I burned the ISO into a usb flash drive using all sorts of programs bot none of them seem to make the USB bootable.

Does anyone know how to solve this?

What’s stopping Linux developers from making Windows software natively compatible?:

I know the language/coding is different (no idea how else to call it), but can’t Linux developers/enthusiasts create a new OS, in the Windows language/coding, that natively supports Windows software? For example, games?

Since it’s such a big, if not the biggest problem the average Linux users have, wouldn’t there be a huge market market/demand for a Linux OS with Windows compatibility?

I would more than happily pay for a Windows compatibile Linux OS.

Or am I suggesting something physically impossible here?

Custom apt repository issue [Help!!]

Custom apt repository issue [Help!!]:

I’m getting quite frustrated with this and I’m not sure exaclty what I’m doing wrong…I have an existing (mirror) apt repository using landscape, so I created a “custom” one to put custom deb packages. On a client system, the list files looks like this the sources list of the custom looks like this:

#cat custom.list deb http://host2/repository/standalone/custom custom main 

So now, on this host I created a custom deb package that has a script that displays “hello world”. I built the deb package and I can install it with the dpkg -i pato.deb and it install incorrectly…so now, I want to be able to search for it on the apt repository but I am unable to do it…this is what I did basically:

  • created deb package
  • copied deb package to /var/lib/repository/custom/pool/main/lib/pato.deb
  • Scanned packages with the dpkg-scanpackages -m pool | gzip > custom/main/binary-i386/Packages.gz (the Paakcge files already existed)

when I do a zcat custom/main/binary-i386/Packages.gz, I can see the description and the package name as I should… so I go back to host1 and do a apt update then apt install pato (package name) but I get the “unable to locate package pato”

what can I do to be able to search for it?? any help or guidance is much appreciated!!

command line mounting? (newbie)

command line mounting? (newbie):

I have a 2 bay qnap with a 3tb and an 8tb drive inside. The 8tb is blank and I created an volume with it. The 3tb has data on it and was a raid 0 with another 3tb that I replaced with the 8tb. I removed that volume before putting 8tb in.

I want to mount the 3tb drive so I can copy the data to the 8tb drive but am struggling to do so. Is this possible?

Reinstall windows after Kali install?

Reinstall windows after Kali install?:

On an old laptop awhile ago, I decided to install kali Linux. If I remember correctly I believe it was a full drive install. I recently unpacked my old laptop and was wondering if I’d be possible to reinstall windows? I remember I followed a tutorial when installing kali, and the videos intention was for duel-booting. Whenever I enter the BIOS no matter which drive I select to boot, it defaults to Kali. If anybody has any information feel free to leave it below. Thanks for your time y’all, have a great rest of your day.

Is there a good way to keep track of/prune the logs spit out by fail2ban, iptables, and possibly others? I have a headless system running and I’m still getting used to it.
