DNS will not flush
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 13, 2009
I have a question about the best way to completely clear cache in linux.
Installed wordpress in a subdir, set dns, waited some time, till the nameservers were set, pinged domain --pinged fine to new hosting provider. Logged into CP on new server, and noticed announcement that the domain had expired. I was like what the heck?!? So I contacted onandone (registrar & previous host) to ask about it. They said that it was set to autorenew. Well, from what bluehost told me (new hosting provider) the domain had expired and was re-registered. Unfortunately, this was right about the time when I set the WP to point to the original domain instead of the subdir.
Now when I go to the domain, it's displaying the cached version and when I ping it from linux it points to oneandone. When I do all of this from windows, everything works fine. I've cleared my firefox cache, and also did /etc/init.d/dns-clean start, and rebooted my system. I can't even point to the subfolder anymore. When I try to

Firefox version in Penta OS will not retain your saved bookmarks.
location: linuxquestions.com - date: September 2, 2009
I installed the Penta OS version of Ubuntu and the version of Firefox that came with it would not retain my bookmarks on restarting Firefox.
My solution was to 'apt-get uninstall Firefox.
Penta OS would not let me install the latest version of Firefox with an incompatability notice.
So I installed one using the Package Manager called Firefox 2.
Now my bookmarks are retained.
Ubuntu will not install with AHCI mode enabled in Bios (Sata III) hard drive.
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 15, 2013
I just wanted to post a problem and solution that I found for installing Ubuntu 12.04/13.04 with AHCI mode enabled in BIOS. I fought for several days trying to do a fresh install of Ubuntu on my primary pc. Every time I tried to install I received an input/output error during installation pointing to my hard drive or cd/dvd drive as the culprit. It turns out that I could not install with AHCI mode enabled and the AHCI mode in SATA III. Instead I had to install with SATA II mode enabled. Took me a several days to figure it out, but SATA III mode seems to be the problem. Just thought I would share that with everyone in case they were having the same problem.
FIX- Go into your bios interface by pressing delete at initial boot, find your your settings for AHCI and change SATA mode to SATA II, or disable SATA III, however your bios is layed out, and proceed to install Ubuntu.
P.S. Im looking for a fix to enable SATA III at the moment. If anyone has a solution, it would
Asus Eee PC 1005HA Netbook will not shutdown using Ubuntu 11.4
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 3, 2011
I have an Asus Eee PC 1005HA Netbook which originally came with Windows 7 Starter installed.
Upon purchase I installed Ubuntu 9.4. Installation went well, and operation was excellent. I was particularly happy with the wireless networking automatically picking up various networks at my clients after coming out of hibernation.
The only glitch was and continues to be that when I go to shut down or restart the netboook it will send the term signal but the netbook then goes to the Ubuntu splash screen and continues to cycle across the bottom buttons indefinitely. (I don't think this is just that it takes a long time, because I have walked away from it for hours and it still is cycling.) If I wait for a couple of cycles and then hold down the power button the computer will shut down. Restarting it after this seems normal and everything operates normally.
This happens, both when I use the Gnome shutdown command on the logout menu or if I use : sudo shutdown -P now

MythTV on nvidia dual screen will not open videos on TV
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 4, 2008
I have nvidia dual screen spanning across my monitor and TV screen. MythTV opens on the TV and I'm still able to use the monitor. MythTv plays back recorded shows and watches TV on the TV. However when I open up videos, they open on the monitor. I have played around with mplayer command line flags but cannot get mythTV or mplayer by itself to open up the mplayer window on the TV.
I have searched and found one thread, but no solutions,
Windows7 will not boot after installing Zorin OS 5
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 26, 2011
I had been dual booting Windows7 Ultimate 64 bit and Ubuntu 11.10 64 bit for a few weeks with no issues. I recently deleted Ubuntu and installed Zorin Ultimate 64 bit to give it a try. Now Windows is not booting up. It shows up on the GRUB as "Windows 7 loader (on /dev/sda1)" but when I select it I just get a promt and nothing else happens. I'm including the output of boot_info_script.sh. I'd really appreciate any help you guys can offer. By the way, I'm pretty new to Linux.

Teamviewer 8 will not start
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 7, 2012
Hello, I have recently installed TV 8 on my linux machine and it worked perfectly until I rebooted.
Now it complains:
"TeamViewer Daemon is not running
Please start teamviewerd and then restart TeamViewer."
I have no service called teamviewer or teamviewerd, so I cannot start it. I tried rebooting but didn't help.
Teamviewer 7 is no good because the other side is already running 8!
PS: I just submitted a support ticket. Will let you know if they respond.
