how can I reinstall B43xx wireless drivers on Ubuntu 9,1 w/out downloading again?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 20, 2010
I had this all working once, and was having connection issues. Disabled the wireless card thinking to reinstall the drivers, only to find that the system wants to download them again, instead of reusing what's already there. The wireless was working before just fine. Never did figure out what was causing the CPU to freeze but I suspect it's the age of the machine. Anyway, what I would really like to do is just get the command: "sudo apt-get install B43-fwcutter" to look at what's on the HDD rather than go to the network it can't reach.
Anyone got any idea(s)?
how to reinstall so that php.ini gets restored
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 17, 2011
Hi. Can someone please tell me how I can restore my php.ini file back to the way it was when php5 was first installed on my system. The best thing would be to "just" restore this file, but the most important thing is that mysql databases are left intact.
How about a "sudo aptget reinstall" ?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 4, 2008
In terms of making the work with the system faster, I would like to see apt-get would get a new funtion of reinstalling. When I am trying to get something to work, or trying to do that again, usually I must reinstall a program or a library to get it configured right, so it really drives me mad, when I have to write all the command from the beginning just because it can't do "reinstalling". Although there is the --reinstall or something like that I'd rather see a stand alone function, just because of the typing. I see this as a way to make the system more work-friendly.

Here's my problem.Whenever i try to switch to a higher resolution from within a an application (game eg doom 3 , rtcw etc) the only thing i get (after switching) is the upper left corner of the screen enlraged!

How do I reinstall "networking" in Ubuntu 10.04? (long but thorough)
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 1, 2011
I solved my suspend/resume issues by replacing the nVida card with an ATI Radeon card. The second of the issues, discussed in other posts, was as follows:
When I selected System; Shutdown; Suspend the PC would not suspend. It would go to a locked screen. When I unlocked the screen I would find that networking was disconnected (shown by the NetworkManager applet) and there was no way to get it back other than to reboot the PC.
That has gone away. However, I have noticed that the networking intermittently disconnects and reconnects and on occasion disconnects and does not reconnect. Sometimes when the PC is rebooted it comes up with networking disabled and no choice in the applet to reconnect. So I have taken on a mission to fix the thing.
A search for "restart networking Ubuntu" brings up a lot of information which did not seem to work. The keys seemed to be editing /etc/network/interfaces and the command sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart. Using a VMWare Ubuntu 10.
How to unpack an Ubuntu or Fedora initrd file
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 11, 2010
I have read the Landley articles on the web as well as the relevant files under 'Documentation' in the kernel source.
I have come to understand ( correct/incorrect ? ) that the 'image' file that is extracted into the 'rootfs' ( which itself is a fixed 'ramfs' filesystem available at boot-time ) by the kernel is a 'cpio' archive containing modules and the 'init' executable to facilitate the kernel's transition into userpace.
That all sounds fine and reasonable. But can anyone tell me >how< to actually extract the contents of such a file that comes with one's distro?
Assuming an X-ubuntu distro, how does one extract the contents of
'initrd.img-2.6.28-11-generic' for example, to examine what's in it?
I have tried various forms of the 'cpio' command
i) cpio -t < initrd.img-2.6.28-11-generic
ii) cpio -idv < initrd.img-2.6.28-11-generic
iii) cpio -i -d -H newc -F initrd.img-2.6.28-11-generic --no-absolute-filenames
