I'm assuming that you can actually boot from the Live CD. Ubuntu has more information here, but in short, after voting from the live CD: If you don't have a /boot/efi partition, create it Start Boot-Repair, click on "Advanced options", go to the "GRUB location" tab, and select the UEFI partition. Click Apply.

So to answer my question, find out what is the program or package that is writing the last lines in the syslog before the crash this a directory should be also checked: /var/crash/ As commenters pointed it out, nouveau is the open source nvidia driver.

I talked to a specialist in Linux systems integration today and this how we solved the Ubuntu Unity file manager blinking problem. Another way to install the latest Nvidia GPU drivers is to go to the nvidia site and download the driver, then follow the installation instructions there to get it installed. This usually works better than using synaptic for ...

On Linux, you can back up and restore ownership and permissions (including access control lists but not SELinux contexts) with the ACL tools. Run getfacl -R >permissions.txt in the toplevel directory on the machine with the correct permissions. Copy over the output file to the target machine and run setfacl --restore=permissions.txt in the toplevel target ...

For Synaptic Package Manager you need to configure proxy. Open Synaptic -> Preferences -> Network, and configure your proxy there.

So, the question is (if I understand it correctly) how one can find out the date of a package that has been modified by Debian, assuming the upstream version has not changed. The Debian/Ubuntu package version number for upstream (non-native) software always consists of two parts. The part before the dash, which is the upstream number, and the one after the ...

You probably want to use rsync. To get that to work, you need to install it on both machines (if it's not installed already). After that, simply run (as root): rsync -avrHP root@source-host:/path/to/source-directory/ /path/to/destination this assumes that: You run the command on the destination host. If you want to run it on the source host, just remove ...

Run as root rsync -og maybe this is what you are looking for. From manpage: -o, --owner This option causes rsync to set the owner of the destination file to be the same as the source file, but only if the receiving rsync is being run as the super-user (see also the --super and --fake-super options). Without this option, the owner of ...

I create my USBs with this tool. It works perfectly when I select it as a boot device. Maybe your boot menu is disabled by default, so make sure you enable it in your BIOS Settings (that happened me in a Packard Bell Laptop, for example). Try to find out which key is the one to access the boot menu, as it depends on the brand. Source: I also have Windows ...

Preferences->Default applications for LXSession or lxsession-default-apps Press autostart Uncheck the line opensnap -d (or remove it) log out/ login. Other things may work as well. The above can be done by editing the file ~/.config/lxsession/Lubuntu/autostart Lubuntu may also be LXDE in other configurations. I didn't even know opensnap was running.

You mentioned you see TCP RST packet whenever this fails. This sounds similar to the issue of a firewall potentially disconnecting as mentioned on the following post, which also has a work around by re-using a hanging ssh connection. rsync-connection-closing-right-around-an-hour There's also an option of --timeout=[timeout value] but I think it's not as ...

If you are new to Linux, look around your environment for friendly geeks or a local Linux user group. Ask them for advise/help. Linux distributions are all built on the same (much more than less) software, what varies is exact versions used, some local patches, and configuration. There really aren't wide-reaching differences, regardless of the many claims ...

Your problem seems to be that your rc-local.service is started before vboxadd-service.service, but it should run after it. Now, rc.local is a SysV thing (where it runs at the very end of the boot process), the compatibility provided by systemd is not perfect (as you can see in your screenshot). You'd probably better off with a custom home-test.mount unit ...

Update: I've now fixed it, what I did was use a tutorial on the Ubuntu Forums to make a DEB file with the (unreadable) folders inside it but set as read-only by anyone and then installed it from the Deb via Chroot and that somehow fixed it and now newly created users work properly. Development can now finish as normal of the OS...

Since you're talking about Ubuntu, I'm going to assume you use that. To fix, do the following: first, ensure you're working on the installed system, not the live system. A live image usually has its own root filesystem that makes reinstalling grub harder than it could be. Assuming you mount your installed root filesystem on /mnt, you can do this by ...

You need to put your file in: /etc/init.d/ And then you have to change it to an executable file by: chmod +x /etc/init.d/myscript if this does not run you have to create a symlink to: /etc/rc.d/ ln -s /etc/init.d/myscript /etc/rc.d/ Please note that on latest Debian, this will not work as your script have to be LSB compliant (provide, at least, the ...

Is it possible to limit the set of English locales on a system? Another way to ensure you only have the English version of of some documentation is to remove non-English from the man pages: sudo rm -rf /usr/share/man/?? sudo rm -rf /usr/share/man/??_* Also see Reducing the size of the Debian Installation Footprint on the Debian wiki.

The issue was related to a bug in the kernel 3.19.0-37-generic I was running. For details see https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux-lts-utopic/+bug/1514785 I upgraded my kernel to 3.19.0-49-generic. It works fine now.

If I were you, I'd do a fresh install of Ubuntu 14.04.3. Your stability problems are likely caused by problems occurring during the upgrade, as 14.04 is, in general, very stable. Unfortunately, there is no way to downgrade an Ubuntu system online. The internal procedure for upgrading an already-installed system is quite complex, and reversing this process ...

Your Intel Core 2 Duo CPU T7500 is a 64-bit processor. So, if you installed the 64-bit OS then you could try the make target linux-x86-64 or if the 32-bit then try linux-x86-sse2.

No option to downgrading from 14.04 to 12.04. The only way would be to re-install 12.04 over the top of 14.04 thereby over-writing everything. Before doing re-install save your data and then load on to 12-04.

The best choice, as already posted, is of course rsync. Nevertheless also unison would be a great piece of software to do this job. Both can be used in several operating systems. Rsync rsync synchronizes in one direction from source to destination. Therefore the following statement rsync -avh --progress Source Destination syncs everything from Source ...

Boot your first PC into the BIOS and look for the boot order settings. If your Ubuntu set up is on a USB drive and it works on one PC and not another, then the problem may be the BIOS setting of the first PC.

The availability of support contracts is another factor; the CIO/CTO needs confidence that risks are mitigated because any problems that do turn up can be fixed within a bounded period and/or professional expert support is available :- a company cannot be dependant on Googling for relevant posts to fulfil its responsibilities to its customers.

While every company and individuals inside those companies may have slightly different goals, I think several things can be of advantage: Long term support Having a stable on supported distribution without major update or compatibility problems reduces administrative overhead.

Actually, just take the default (remove the second parameter). See https://metacpan.org/pod/IO::Socket::SSL (search for SSL_version). The default is SSLv23:!SSLv3:!SSLv2.

The question is answered by myself now! The problem was that the crypttab entry for the second container was invalid. Even though I double-checked, I missed the error, and the update-initramfs didn't complain either. What do I take away from this? Always triple- or quadruple-check such critical things, as it can often save you a lot of hassle (and others ...
