I'd suggest that you look in one of the log files in /var/log (depending on your syslog configuration settings) as this information will be there if configured appropriately. last is basically only used when you run login. If you do not find it, then an appropriate reconfiguration of syslog and/or sshd_config might be in order.

You can simply download the .deb and install it with dpkg -i file.deb. However, this will be a one-time install and you will not get updates for this package as part of the normal apt-get update && apt-get upgrade process. If you want to get them, you will have to add the Utopic repositories to your sources.list and use /etc/apt/preferences to ...

Upgrading my kernel from 3.13 to 3.16 (http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v3.16-utopic/) and reinstalling the new driver from https://github.com/lwfinger/rtlwifi_new seems to have solved my problems. Don't forget to reboot. Note: Upgrading the kernel in itself did not help.

The command you're looking for is called ldapsearch. It's a bit of a pain to use, though. Here are some usage examples: To get a full listing of all entries in the directory (depending on whether your server and/or network can handle this query): ldapsearch -h ldapserver.example.cm -b "dc=example,dc=com" -s sub "objectclass=*" To search for a ...

You need an EFI bootable USB stick, no matter what distribution you plan to use. For example Porteus distribution offers it out of the box. So all you need to do is following: Go to Porteus Download section and select 64 bit varian and EFI support; rest can be default. Download your ISO image. Copy the content of the image to your USB stick. Run the ...

OP solution and conclusions Based on previous answers here is the solution I ended up doing. 1. Copy the source code Copy your source code to the VM or other machine. I've used : scp -R /host/path/to/src/ user@remoteHost:/remote/build/path/ It's like going on a road trip, so pack well, gather all the sources that you require for compile, minus the ...

APT doesn't know anything about your manually-installed software. If you installed Emacs under /usr/local (the default location), that installation is completely independent from the Emacs installation under /usr managed by APT. Running emacs will run /usr/local/bin/emacs (your manual installation); running /usr/bin/emacs will run the Emacs installed by APT ...

Loop devices have some pitfalls. Many operations are not instant, for example, when you losetup -d the loop device will be kept alive until it is no longer in use. Devices can be in use even if you're not aware of it, due to background processes scanning devices for uuids and other things. Maybe you should leave the choice of loop device to losetup by using ...

Apt-get does not have a "safeupgrade" command. Are you thinking of "aptitude safe-upgrade"? That aside, apt-get only "knows" things because the package system maintains a database of all the changes the package subsystem programs makes. When you download source and build it yourself and then install it, that is not done using the package subsystem so none ...

Part 3 of 3 (from here): sudo lxc-list to list the containers. If there's one listed, you might start it and see if your user is there. As for whether you were working in a snapshot, that would imply that some virtualization was operating. Outside of looking for KVM: sudo dpkg -l | grep -i kvm, this is outside of the scope of the OS.

I would suggest not doing this. It's generally easier to build binaries for the different distros within that distro's package building process. On CentOS, that would be making use of rpmbuild. Since you're dealing with VMs it would be much more trivial to setup a CentOS 7 VM + build tools and then do the package construction there. Observations from a ...

For those who want to do this with some mouse clicks, you could also just open Disks.

runuser is a recent command, it appeared in util-linux 2.23. Ubuntu 14.04 ships util-linux 2.20, so it doesn't have this command yet. runuser isn't very useful. Just use su instead. Note that the command runuser user -c 'cd' doesn't actually do anything — the scope of cd does not extend to the next call to runuser. You'd have to use runuser user -c 'cd ...

You might want to look into Puppet - it is excellent for installing and configuring software automatically. There's also a MySQL module, but I haven't tried it.

On Ubuntu you should be using adduser instead of useradd (see man useradd). The Ubuntu useradd has e.g. no -n option. adduser creates a new group user, with the users name, as the default group: adduser --no-create-home --home "/home/$homedir" "$uname" You will be prompted for a password and GECOS info by the program. If prompting is not what you want ...

I know this doesn't answer your question but if the user was missing from /etc/passwd then someone with sudo/root access at some time deleted the user. Being that the user's home directory was also missing gives me the impression that someone ran a not only did a userdel they did a rm -rf /home/user. That implies that there was intent to delete. You can ...

The su binary is provided by the login package. You can reinstall it and get your su back by running apt-get install --reinstall login This assumes that you have root access of course but since you said you still have a root session open, that shouldn't be a problem.

One of possible solution is that, create the mqueue drive with root permission in /var/spool hope its may work. best luck. Regards Jaymin D

They are not two approaches. In one case you use bridge-utils directly (which is a temporary configuration change) in the other case (permanent configuration change) you use them indirectly via the network scripts which parse /etc/network/interfaces.

Just searched for nano line wrapping and this came high in results, so I'll post my findings for GNU nano 2.2.6 on the Raspberry Pi, Raspbian GNU/Linux 7: Esc+L gave me the same message; but for the line wrapping to take effect I had to modify the line. As soon as I typed another character on the long line, wrapping kicked in.

I wrote in my questions that I tried to force the mode with xrandr but got an error. I tried to obtain the mode lines with cvt and gtf which appeared to be the way to get these. But none of the obtained mode lines worked, so I gave up on xrandr and tried other solutions. Actually, I even bought a new graphics card, and while unpacking it, I decided to give ...

I found the problem. The problem was the driver that had some bugs. I downloaded the most recent version of the drivers for my ethernet card (Intel® Ethernet Connection I217-V) embedded in the motherboard (GA-Z97N-WIFI) and installed it. It works with no problem.

Leverage udev to use the same device name Instead of listing UUIDs in /etc/fstab, you could list a device name, and set up udev to use the same device name for all of these devices. Put a line like this in a file in /etc/udev/rules.d: KERNEL=="sd*", ATTRS{serial}=="123456798", NAME="one_of_my_disks%n" or KERNEL=="sd*", ATTRS{serial}=="123456798", ...

I am not entirely sure about what you mean with "preseed". If you are talking about a KickStart or unattended install, one good tool for that is anaconda. I have used it extensively for unattended installation of RedHatLinux. According to Debian Wiki it is supported at Debian also. Being ubuntu a Debian derivative it should be usable. You control the ...

You don't have to do anything, this means that if its running right now then you have to stop it and start again, such as: pkill youtube-dl

There is no permanently running service. The message given after update is kind of confusing, but basically means that if you have an instance of youtube-dl running currently, it must be restarted to benefit from the update. Since it rarely takes longer to download a video, than it does to update, I suspect the number of people who actually 'need' to ...

lspci doesn't show your network adapter. That means it isn't connected to the PCI bus. All PCI peripherals appear in the lspci output, regardless of whether you have a driver for them: it's a PCI feature.
