[SOLVED] Debian server vs Ubuntu server vs Slackware for Quad Xeon DL580 G3
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 17, 2011
I'm very new to Linux and I'm looking for some guidance on which version of Linux server I should install. I read several posts that try to compare Slackware, Debian server, and Ubuntu but the message I got is that each version has its pros/cons. The version that you end up using should ultimately be the best for what you are trying to do. I'll try to explain what I'm trying to do to see if it helps in making a recommendation.
I purchased a HP Proliant DL580 G3 with the following configuration:
(4) Intel Xeon 3.0Ghz CPU's W/ 8mb Cache/667mHz FSB
16GB RAM @ 16 x 1GB ELPIDA PC2-3200-333
(2) 36.4GB 15k U320 SCSI Hard Drives
(2) Power Supplies
This server will be configured as my web server and database server. I will use Apache and MySQL.
I want the server to be as secure as possible and will be following the recommendations on the book "Hacking Linux Exposed" to configure Linux.
I would like to install a version of Linux that
Compaq Proliant DL380 G2 refusing to install Ubuntu Server 10.10
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 30, 2011
I guess that the other thread I tagged onto (See HERE) wasn't working, so I'm making my own...
I have a Compaq server, as per the title, and I wish to install Ubuntu Server onto it but ran aground when I found it got to trying to run the installer after the CD Boot menu, it just stopped there, waited 180 seconds (as per the error's details) and then locked up with the Caps Lock & Scroll Lock lights on the keyboard flashing.
Now I know it's not the server, as I have installed other OSes onto it in the past, including an older version of Ubuntu server (9.04), I did try and re-install the 9.04 version but the CD I had was too scratched up and got to a point in the installer (copying files) where it just failed cos it couldn't read the disc.
Any thoughts or fixes for this? It's annoying having my server sat there unable to do anything...
The specs of the thing are:
Dual PentiumIIIs 1.4GHz
512mb RAM (keep meaning to upgrade it)
3x 18.2GB 10k SCSI HDDs (Storage)
1x 18.2GB 15k SCSI
HP ProLiant DL580 G5: Illegal Opcode on boot
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 4, 2010
After a nightmarish 24 hours, I've successfully installed Ubuntu 10.04 x86-64 Server on an HP ProLiant DL580 G5 server with an added P800 Raid Controller device. I wanted to make a public record on the steps to finish the installation in case it helps anyone in the future.
The issue we were running in to was the message "Illegal Opcode" given after BIOS startup before the OS could load, even after a successful OS installation. HP support confirmed that this message is given when the MBR on the boot controller does not refer to a valid bootable partition.
First, our configuration (after several troubleshooting iterations - I'll leave out those steps):
HP ProLiant DL580 G5 with 32GB ECC-RAM, storage:
* 2x 70GB SAS storage via p400 Raid Controller, configured as 140GB RAID 0 device ("/dev/cciss/c1d0"), designated in the raid configuration manager (ORCA) as the Boot Controller
* 24x 1TB SAS storage via p800 Raid Controller, configured as 2x 10TB RAID 6 devices ("
MX/MX2/G2 TV Box Ubuntu installation
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 25, 2014
I have an Android TV Box with a Cortex-A9, dual core, 1GB rom, 8GB ram also called MX TV box or MX2.
I'm trying to install Ubuntu, but to install any operating system has to be done through the update on recovery mode, the OS has to be on a zip file, in order for the box to install it.
Any one that has done this installation, or instructions how to built this zip file for installation????

LG G2 not showing up. I can't backup my data.
- date: April 14, 2014
I attach my LG G2 phone to my computer to rsync my data.
At first, Lubuntu pops up the normal "Open folder to view files" prompt.
I select the "Open folder to view files and it opens a verizon wireless section I've never seen before.
I select MTP sync on my phone to connect it as a media device.
Ordinarily, I would then see two more prompts to "Open folders to view files" but nothing else shows up and the verizon partition disappears.
This is what I get before and after I plugin the device:

some things i'm trying to get working:
i use the gnome2 windowmanager and metacity. m.c. is afaik the part which is responsible for window-placement. i'd like to modify that since nearly everthing pop's up in the upper left corner.
is there a way to change that or should i use another wm?
i lately installed lvm on my old server/gateway-box. it's running sarge with kernel-ver 2.4.23 (need it for badram+scsiidle) without modules. at bootup, when lvm (exactly vgscan) starts it says:
Setting up LVM Volume Groups...
vgscan -- reading all physical volumes (this may take a while...)
modprobe: Can't open dependencies file /lib/modules/2.4.23/modules.dep (No s..)
vgscan -- found inactive ....
that just bothers me, but lvm is working unfailingly. i checked the daemon startupfiles, created a empty modules.dep for lvm, ... but couldn't get rid of that message. it's lvm10 and CONFIG_BLK_DEV_LVM & _DM (< i actual

Error: could not insert 'nvidia352' after Installing Cuda on EC2 g2.2xlarge
location: linuxexchange.com - date: September 30, 2015
After launching Ubuntu Server 14.04 LTS (HVM), I tried to install CUDA as following
sudo dpkg -i cuda-repo-ubuntu1404_7.5-18_amd64.deb
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install -y cuda
Then I run a test
got the error:
modprobe: ERROR: could not insert 'nvidia_352': Unknown symbol in
module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg) cudaGetDeviceCount returned
-> no CUDA-capable device is detected
What could be wrong here?
