Thoughts on Monitoring file changes with Linux over the network

Thoughts on Monitoring file changes with Linux over the network
Monitoring a directory for changes with Linux is possible through the well-known mechanism inotify. With inotify it’s possible to set a watch on a directory, configure it to watch events on the contents, and you’ll receive messages on a file descriptor when something happens. This works perfectly when the directory is on local storage, like a hard drive, SSD or a USB drive, But it is not sufficient when the directory is on a network filesystem when the storage is on another computer. Another user working in the same directory, connected via the same or another filesystem, can remove a file and the watch you’ve set on it will not get notified.

How to transform your Ubuntu installation into a rolling release

How to transform your Ubuntu installation into a rolling release
Ubuntu users out there have two ways to go with their systems. Either they choose to follow the “standard” release that gets upgraded every six months, or choose the latest LTS (Long Term Support) which guarantees security updates and support for a five-year period. The problem with the first is that you’ll have to perform major upgrades to your system twice a year, while the issue with the latter is that you won’t get any major updates on parts of the system that you may care about using what’s latest.
