Ubuntu (server): No network interface
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 17, 2013
I got a VPS from weloveservers.net yesterday, and it cannot ping any IP address, and I cannot use the apt-get and wget commands. After trying to figure out the problem for a while, I found that the network interfaces eth0 and eth1 are not configured. To make matters worse, bash cannot find the 'auto' command. I looked online and found that you mey need to edit /etc/network/interfaces or something, but there is an error saying that "Permission is denied" when I try entering '/etc/network/interfaces' into the remote console. I have full root access. It seems that the VPS provider installed something other than default Ubuntu 12.04 64-bit. For all I know, I may have Ubuntu Server installed, or some crazy, unheard-of OS. So is there a way to configure the eth0/eth1 network interface properly? If you're wondering how I can access the remote console, I think that the control panel program directly communicates with the server.
EDIT: The precise version of the OS is Ubuntu 12.04.1
Gaming Problems Audio (WOLFENSTEIN, etc)
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 25, 2007
I've searched around, and used all of the 'killall' commands to disable ESD and the like, also found out ALSA doesn't work well with games. I've switched the sound config around and tried to use the basic INTEL sound, switched sound options in games, and am on the brink of switching back to Windows XP. So far Ubuntu works decently, except gaming, it's utterly useless thus far. Whether it's WINE implementations of games, (CS, Jedi Academy, etc) or straight .run files downloaded from sites, and installed, I'm still having issues. At least Windows XP can install games and get the sound to work without using a terminal + Sudo/Su + entering a password everytime you try and alter the system + constant hours of config for something that should be Automatic... GRR
So far WINE install time is equivalent to using a Pentium 166Mhz, and the amount of config work required to make games work just isn't worth it.

I just bought a new hard drive (200gb) and was wondering what the max hard drive size that linux will support? I know Windows XP has some a 137gig max (larger requires partitioning or somethign or other) Is there any similiar issues with linux, or is there no max disk size for linux?

What is used to create the shadow password hash??
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 27, 2007
When you create a new user thats able to login etc etc, you also create there password for them, this obviously works with the users password being hashed irreversibly, then every time the user logs in they give their password, this is hashed again and then compared against the hash in the password file. What i'm asking is what command/function creates this hashed password that goes into the shadow file. eg you can do similar things with echo 'password'|md5sum
i'm guessing this shadow password hash is created in a similar fashion and i'd like to know what it is? So i can create my own user adding script that adds new users into a file of my own. I know to change a password you just use the passwd command but i'm trying more to be able to retrieve the output.
Hope someone knows thanks regards
ps-i've done an strace of 'passwd' but this didn't make anything to obvious in the method used
