Ubuntu bootloader stuck at restoring resolver state after upgrading to 14.04
location: linuxexchange.com - date: January 1, 1970
I upgraded after Ubuntu 13.10 to 14.04. However after the upgrade, the system restarted. But got stuck with a black screen displaying the message:
Starting VMware services: [OK]
Virtual machine monitor done
Virtual machine communication interface done
VM communication interface socket family done
Blocking file system done
Virtual ethernet done
VMware Authentication Daemon done
Shared memory available done
speech-dispatcher disabled; edit /etc/default/speech-dispatcher
Starting VirtualBox Kernel modules ...failed!
(modprobe vdoxdrv failed. Please use 'dmseg' to find out why)
saned disabled; edit /etc/default/saned
* Restoring resolver state... [OK]
And the system is stuck at this point for hours. Unable to access even the console, hence unable to do anything.
I can't format my system as it contains all my project codes and other important data.
restoring mouse defaults
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 13, 2010
I was messing around with games on my desktop.
I'm using lynx, relatively newly installed.
I changed the mouse controls in one of the games to be more sensative for movement.
I've got problems now.
It seems like whenever I click on a windowframe in gnome, half the time the windowframe treats my click as a doubleclick.
The results are really frustrating.
For days I've been messing around with the mouse settings under system>preferences, but I can't seem to get the settings right.
Knowing linux, the mouse controls have to be set in a text file somewhere.
Can anyone help me to reset my mouse preferences to the original defaults ?
Automatically change hostname when restoring from Clonezilla.
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 8, 2012
I set up a server with DRBL. I have saved an image of one machine which had a slightly-customized Ubuntu Desktop install. I want to deploy the image to over 100 machines. But I have a problem. Every system I restore from the image has the same hostname as the source machine. I understand that "cloning" a system means creating an *exact* copy of the source disk (including the hostname) but -- at the same time -- Clonezilla is specifically designed to deploy a standard image across multiple workstations. So it must have the capacity to change the hostname of each machine it restores. Or am I using the wrong tool for this task? How can I change the hostname of every machine I restore? I'm looking for an automated solution here. I have no desire to manually edit the hostname file of every machine.
Restoring to vanilla kernel (quickly)
location: linuxquestions.com - date: December 10, 2009
I've just updated to the latest ubuntu build and started installing packages, one of the packages I installed from source - it failed to function so I wrote code to remove any references of it (TERRIBLE IDEA!).
I'd like to restore the whole system back to how it was the first time I installed, essentially the vanilla kernel, are there any clever recovery options or things apt is able to do? I've seen the CD-rom mentioned in synaptic as a repository...

restoring grub2 record on each drive of a raid 5 or 6 array
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 27, 2013
After expanding a raid 6 mdadm array from 4 to 5 drives, with --add and --grow, and before any updates to grub were made, computer was restarted.
At boot, it now says something about an invalid arch independent ELF magic, and a grub rescue> prompt.
Since the raid hosts /, I wonder if the ability of grub to assemble the md0 to get to /boot is now compromised. I have no idea how does that part work...
What I have done, I booted from the "live usb" and have also found that as a part of my previous attempts to boot from the raid, one drive fell out (sdc), and --assemble --scan was only using 3 drives, ending up in degraded array. I have probably accidentally unplugged the drive, when checking cables out of desperation , but in any case - I have plugged the drive back in, and it was still not willing to join, complaining about superblock.
Anyway, I have started the --manage --add, and it is resyncing now. When it is done, I am not sure what to do... I will attem
Restoring MYSQL database without SSH shell access
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 6, 2004
I just rent a share host and it is not allowed me to use SSH to access the server so I can't restore MySQL database(phpMyAdmin can do that but the database is large and ussualy got timeout).
My question is:
Is there and any php script allow me run command: mysql -u myname -pmypassword -D mydatabase </home/myaccount/html/mybackupdatabase.sql? So basically, I just want if I type http://www.maydomain.com/restore.php it will show a page something like:
Do you want to run this command:
mysql -u myname -pmypassword -D mydatabase </home/myaccount/html/mybackupdatabase.sql?
and if I click yes, it executes the script.
Restoring Windows XP NTLDR from Linux?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 8, 2008
I used to run Ubuntu 7.10 + Windows XP (dual boot), but after some slight re-partitioning and installing 8.04 clean, I seem to have hosed the Windows XP partition.
First, it wasn't in the GRUB menu, which was easily remedied by editing menu.lst. When I try to boot to my Windows partition though, I get this error:
"A disk read error occurred
Press Ctrl+alt+delete to restart"
Upon inspection, my Windows XP (NTFS) partition is missing boot.ini and other NTLDR files. My first intuition was to try to use the Windows XP CD's recovery console but it doesn't work for me ("Setup did not find any drives" error).
Is there a way for me to salvage my Windows XP partition?

So what should I do now?
I am having this problem with Linux Mint 12. I have tried to install twice now and it still hangs at exactly the same place: "Restoring previously installed packages..."
Finally I went away and came back 2 hours later. NO CHANGE. I reinstalled, came to the same message, NO CHANGE. I don't know what I'm doing wrong, because this is a re-installation. I successfully installed from this same DVD earlier today.
