[SOLVED] A solution for nouveau problems with fresh install of slackware64current
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 6, 2011
After a fresh install of Slackware64-current could not get X to start correctly with the nouveau driver. When ever X started display was scrambled. Only kde would partially work with desktop effects enabled, but very slow. Without desktop effects enable kde was also scrambled. After trying several things and googling came up with the following.
To get X to work created a nouveau-kms.conf file in /etc/modprobe.d with the following text.
[SOLVED] Debian vs Arch linux for my needs on a laptop advice requested
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 1, 2012
Hello LQ users, I just have a couple of questions.
I recently got a new laptop, and I'm finally intent on running GNU/Linux properly on it, (I've mainly used virtual machines in the past).
My friend recommended Arch Linux to me, and I say that it's intriguing, yet I only have one main issue with it: pacman.
I'm just used to apt-get, and to me, it is much more user friendly, as well as more powerful (in terms of number of commands/options, from a first glance anyway).
So I've had experience with Fedora, Ubuntu and Kubuntu (as well as Xubuntu). I've decided that most likely I'll try GNOME 3, thus my reasoning for instead of Arch, maybe trying a more Debian-based derivative. So now I'm thinking, I don't need a Debian based derivative, maybe I should just try Debian itself!
I'm mainly wondering which one to pick, Debian or Arch. I'm fine with suggestions, but I'd rather distros that are at least fairly well known, and not the really obscure ones.
I want to be able to try
[SOLVED] Best FTP server for my needs?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 18, 2011
I'm trying to find a ftp server best for my needs. I'm pretty new to ubuntu Linux (Mac user - Winslowz hater ) but I did my homework and found a few FTP servers:
if you have any more that I might like, please write me below...
I'm pretty familiar with Terminal, so a command line is no problem. I've done some programing for iOS and Mac. (and I also hosted a FTP before - but through crappy Winblowz). Although, I would be delighted if there is a GUI FTP server. I'm not too much concerned about security, I would only host some stuff I want to share with friends etc, nothing too important. A next problem is my PC is quite crappy, I've got a small hard drive, thats why I'd like to share my HUGE external drives...
The computer which I will use for the server, is just standing around, I won't need to use it for other stuff (work). Its only usage is the server.
What I'm looking for:
- something more less easy to use (both
Re: Slow SSH, suggested solution not working [SOLVED]
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 22, 2011
I have a three computer network, with two Ubuntu machines, and one Mythbuntu machine. I often run programs from one computer on another by connecting via SSH. For years this ran perfectly, and running an application from another computer on my LAN ran as smoothly as if I was running the program from the same machine I was in front of.
About two weeks ago, programs I ran over SSH seemed incredibly slow. If I clicked in an interface, it would take forever to respond. As I write this now, testing using Amarok, it takes about four seconds for a click to register.
Another symptom of this issue is that if I reboot all the machines, the problem is reduced. I get better response times. However, after some amount of time, I don't know how long, the problem comes back and gradually gets worse.
I searched the forums and the web in general for an answer, and found that others had reported similar issues.
In all cases, they reported that the solution was to edit the fil
[SOLVED] Linux workstation frequently needs reboot, error indicates #processes exceeded

At this time I feel like we have found the cause of the issue. There have changes made to a script used to query maps the geologist use. It looks like when we run the new "chooser" we end up with this error.

[SOLVED] SOLUTION: named: loading from master file managedkeys.bind failed: file not found
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 20, 2011
This fix took a lot of netsearching and a bit of luck so I'll just leave it here ...
ENVIRONMENT (others may be similar): Debian 6.0 Squeeze, bind 9.7.2
ERROR MESSAGE (in /var/log/syslog): managed-keys-zone ./IN: loading from master file managed-keys.bind failed: file not found
FIX create file managed-keys.bind in bind's working directory with the same owner, group and read & write permissions as the directory.
Exactly how to do this depends on whether BIND/named is configured to chroot. On Squeeze this is conventionally configured on the OPTIONS line of /etc/default/bind9 with something like -t /var/chroot/bind9. If BIND/named is running a quick way to find out is ps -ef | grep named. If named is chrooted, prefix the following paths with the chroot directory. The paths are from Squeeze; other distros may be different.
BIND/named's default working directory is /var/cache/bind; this could have been modified on the "directory" line in /etc/bind/named.con
[SOLVED] Mint 13: updatemanager needs a kick in the ass
location: linuxquestions.com - date: September 11, 2013
I'm running Linux Mint 13 (Maya) on three different PCs, and each of them has the same issue: The update manager (represented by a panel icon with a green tick mark) always reports that my system is up to date. It never detects availability of updates on its own. Even a right-click on the icon and selecting "Refresh" from the context menu doesn't bring up any news.
Only after I double-click the icon and enter my password for being sudo'ed, update manager starts retrieving the list of available updates.
Is it just me, or does anybody else have this effect, too? - I mean, the purpose of update manager is to notify me of updates without my explicit asking for it, is it? Shouldn't it retrieve the list of available updates in the background from time to time? Mint 12 did, and the Ubuntus I used in the past also did.
Maybe it's a configuration issue, but even an almost fresh install of Mint 13 MATE on my notebook shows this behavior.

[SOLVED] Best open source software / live cd solution to image / backup & restore a WIN 7 ?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 2, 2010
I really do try to avoid using Windows, however, it is impossible to avoid it. My father has recently acquired a laptop running WIN7. He is keen to have a complete backup of his system in the case of a crash or failure. In the linux environment I have had no problems with Clonezilla or Partimage (except maybe to re-install grub and the MBR separately). Would either of the two work just as well backing up WIN7 ? Do both solutions backup the MBR of the Windows machine as well or is it worthwhile backing up the boot sector manually using the dd command ?
[SOLVED] Having trouble finding a backup solution
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 16, 2012
I have 3 Linux servers (command line only, no KDE) that I need to backup. The first is my DNS server. The second is for services, it handles my printer queues and acts as my winserver, etc... The third is my internet gateway. I need to be able to backup these servers over my LAN to a network storage device which houses 5 HDDs configured in a Raid 5 with just over 2 TBs of storage capacity. All of this has to be done has a hot backup without shutting the servers down.
I need the ability to do full system backups, incremental backups, and HDD image. I want to be covered in all areas in case of a disaster. I also need to be able to restore to bare metal and a partially running system, and have the ability to restore single files from a backup. Does anyone have any ideas that can help me? Please note that I am completely new to Linux and although I learn quickly, attempting to learn Linux on my own has proved somewhat difficult.
