Bug in Citadelserver on Ubuntu Server Edition 12.04 LTS
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 13, 2013
We are migrating to Ubuntu Server Edition from CentOS. We use the Citadel mail/groupware server a lot but there's a bug in Citadel resulting in the delete button in web mail not to work. The bug is described here:
Is there a way to fix this without upgrading either Ubuntu Server or Citadel Server, and what would it take to run a newer version of Citadel Server on 12.04 to fix this problem?
[SOLVED] Switching from Ubuntu Server (12.04 LTE) to Debian.
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 6, 2013
Hi guys. I'm running a 64bit Ubuntu Server 12.04 LTE at home with apace2, ssh, rtorrent and storage disks encrypted with LUKS.
I'm thinking of switching to Debian stable and as far as i know every processes i use should work just fine since Ubuntu is based on Debian.
The question marks starts to appear when thinking of my storage solution. Will it work to install cryptsetup under debian and open my disks?
And are there any thing else i should consider before switching?
[SOLVED] VBOX headless ubuntu server
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 24, 2013
i have set up a headless vbox vm on ubuntu server 12.04. i've done this before from a gui distro no problem but reached an impass this time because ubuntu server has no gui for vrdp used by vbox for NATing remote connections. the issue is i set the machine up completely fine but need to now install the OS. when i start the vm it listens on port 3389 like it is supposed to but i can't access it via "rdesktop 127.0.0.1" because the server has no gui to use rdesktop and display the install process of the distro on the guest vm. this was a non issue before because my host OS had a gui but since this one doesn't i don't know what i should do. i don't want to install a gui because once the guest OS is installed rdesktop isn't needed since it will be accessed with ssh remotely via vbox's built in NAT function. any ideas how i can get this guest OS installed?

Distro speed on old computer, Ubuntu or Fedora?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 4, 2010
Hi, I am new to linux, although I am an advanced computer user. Have have a computer from 2001 with: 700 Mhz Celeron CPU, 640 MB RAM (gonna up it to 1GB soon), 64 MB graphics, 30 GB hard drive.
I installed Ubuntu 9.04 on this computer, but it runs slow. It's not unusable but slow. I was wondering in Fedora would run faster? I know it has lower system requirements but would it run faster on this older hardware? Also any other full distro suggestions would be welcome.
edubuntu or ubuntu server?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 21, 2010
Hi folks. I am looking to set up a thin client server for my business. It will be small (~15 workstations) and the requirements are very modest (mostly web browsing). Looking at edubuntu, I see it comes setup and preconfigured with some features I was expecting to use, like ltsp, dhcp, menu editors/thin client management gui tools, gnome nanny, etc. In general its feature set seems very useful. However, I would like this server to have maximum longevity, since it will probably remain unchanged for the forseeable future once it's properly configured. I was originally considering installing ubuntu server 10.04 because of the long-term support promise of five years. I have had some trouble locating more documentation relating to edubuntu's integration with ubuntu updates and its support into the future on any given version. Does anybody have any input that could inform me to make the right decision? Thanks in advance!
Ubuntu + Kubuntu + Xubuntu + edubuntu + Ubuntu Server
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 20, 2006
I have a question. Can I install ubuntu and then install
kubuntu, xubuntu, edubuntu and ubuntu server on top of it?
Please note I don't have a internet connection and I can't use synaptic. I have the CDs for all the above mentioned.
sudo aptitude update
sudo aptitude install kubuntu-desktop ( for kubuntu)
but it tries to connect online and doesn't ask for the CD.
I also tried doing it using synaptic by adding the kubuntu to repositories. But nothing seem to work.
Please point out if I am doing anything wrong.
The settings in synaptic seems to be ok.
Please let me know how I can do it?
Eagerly waiting for a response.
Switching from FreeBSD to Ubuntu Server (Samba)
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 26, 2011
Sometime in the next few weeks the office I just started working in wants me to switch their file server over to Ubuntu, from FreeBSD. I am a little scared of doing this, seeing as how I came into this job with no documentation of the network/hardware that I will be primarily working with. Does anyone have any useful tips/links that would be relevant to my task? So far, I have copied over the following files from the FreeBSD server:
I've made an Ubuntu samba server before, so I was kind of off-put by those file locations on the FreeBSD server. Any suggestions would greatly appreciated.
Gnome on Ubuntu Server Edition
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 8, 2008
I have just installed Ubuntu server edition and am trying to figure out how to load Gnome desktop. I have done research and from what I have seen, it comes with desktop edition but not server. That is if I am reading right. I tried following a few pages on installing it, but I do not think im reading right.
Basically I want to load into Gnome desktop but can not figure out how. It seems everything installed right as I can login at the command prompt looking screen, but not sure how to load Gnome. How do I go about doing this?
