What broke the config was providing --user and --password as command line options on the line beginning with pty. The username is already given on the next line and password should be provided in /etc/ppp/chap-secrets. The problem was fixed by changing that line to pty "sstpc --ipparam sstp-1 --nolaunchpppd SERVER_IP" in addition, there is no need to ...

Does it work with the PUIS disabled? The fact that you get a port enable failed may indicate an HBA problem but the fact that you got the target resets on the drives (log_info 0x31111000) shows you got the port enabled in some cases but the drives failed to respond. This may be due to the PUIS condition, they simply did not initialize. Normally when you ...

This sounds like your acpid daemon isn't running, for some unknown reason. You can confirm this if you're able to get shell access to the system like so: $ pgrep -l acpi You should get some response back. If you do you can double check how acpid is being invoked with this command: $ ps -eaf | grep acpi If it isn't running you might want to try forcing ...

Probably you did not install corresponding gstream plugins. Without proper audio/video decoders, it won't play. MPlayer does not rely on this, so it works

There are different ways to play sound in Linux. There are: pulseaudio, alsa, oss, jack. There are also multiple higher level libs like: sdl, openal. Mplayer can use a lot of this and can select different way to access audio if one way doesn't work. Look into mplayer -ao help. Find out which ao works for you by logs and check by specifying ao explicitly. In ...

If you fiddled with your home directory, you needed root to get at the /home directory that contains it. Possibly your home now contains some stuff owned by something other than you, that the sudo obviates. An aggressive approach might be "sudo chown -R myname:users ~myname" A more cautious person might do "find ~myname ! -user myname" to look for such ...

You may want to upgrade to Firefox 26, and I do mean Firefox. Mozilla has been involved in a legal battle with MPEG-LA (the copyright holders of H.264, including MPEG/2/3/4) since at least 2010. Perhaps the Iceweasel fork doesn't have Mozilla's weight when it comes to licensing agreements, perhaps patented codecs go against the Iceweasel/Debian ideology. ...

On Gnome and other full desktop environments (DE) there is a standard binding for special keys like XF86AudioLowerVolume. These are preconfigure by the DE developers to execute code, since it makes sense to lower the volume with the Gnome Mixer when you press XF86AudioLowerVolume. With Openbox there is no standard sound mixer, so you have to define the ...

Talking to you for a while on chat it turned out that env | egrep 'INTEL|GL|MESA' showed you have LIBGL_ALWAYS_SOFTWARE=1 set. That's your problem. Per the documentation for LIBGL_ALWAYS_SOFTWARE, that disables all hardware rendering. When you use sudo to try driconf as root, sudo was removing it from the environment. You need to find where that is set, ...

From your information, it seems that everything is fine: no errors. But the X display may be on tty8 instead of tty7. So, switch to tty8 with Ctrl-Alt-F8. EDIT: This is a known problem: https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=29920 Example of bug where the screen is black while startx works (this may be related or give some ideas): ...

the ownership is preserved, but probably you dont have the same users in both enviroments. check the user id of by example user www-data in both servers and compare it. you may see another name, but the id will be the same
