new Ubuntu install using alt. cd and LVM (please help!)
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 4, 2012
HI, I'm not exactly new to using Linux, but I am not technically proficient in coping with what I'm needing to accomplish.
I want to install Ubuntu 12.04 using LVM and including all 4 physical hard drives in my computer.
so far I have been able to install using the alternative cd using LVM but only on one drive. once installed I haven't been able to add the other drives into the LVM (sorry if the terminology isn't correct)
here are the questions I need answered and maybe help with.
1. can I get the Ubuntu alt. cd installer to use all 4 drives as one logical volume during the install? if so how?
2. if the answer to question 1 is no, can I add the other 3 drives to the logical volume after the install? if so how?
someone suggested using Fedora as it makes it easy to accomplish what I want, but I'm having reliability issues that I never had with Ubuntu and I'd like to move back.
here is what my current LVM looks like under Fedora 14:
I have had some issues lately when using sudo aptget install Please Help

Using Named Virtual Host via Apache for FTP via vsftpd Help
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 8, 2013
I'm new and found some of the help pages on this website to be of great assistance, however i'm trying to turn my Raspberry Pi into an FTP server using a named host and am having some issues.
I've set up a virtual host using Apache2, which results with the "It WORKS" screen when i go to the website. Also, I have setup vsftpd for FTP access. So far, I can connect to the Pi using the IP address, but not the web address which results in the I/O Error: Connection Failed - Read Timed out. I've been using Cyberduck to connect. I'm using the same settings for both connections.
I'm running out of ideas on what to try next. I haven't set up any individual users for Apache or vsftpd, maybe thats the issue?
If there is an easier way to go about this, then please let me know. Any help will be much appreciated.

[python, pygame] Need help getting movement controls right using classes
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 5, 2013
So I have googled for hours and played with this for hours.
I have managed to make a game that works without using classes or other files but I want to make something more substantial and hence I have learned how to utilize these tools. One problem. The old method I used for movement controls doesn't port well to the way I am forced to do things via classes so I have coded a new way of handling it but for the life of me I can't seem to make it all work.
The problems hang around the self.position in __init__. I want it to give the default position of (WINDOWWIDTH // 2, WINDOWHEIGHT // 2) so it will start us in the middle of the screen but if I give it any value thats where I start and stop. I don't think it's being updated from the movement function.
I have managed to make movement sort of work with the use of a for loop before the movement ifs that looks like this:
for k in key_states:
if k.key == pyg
help Xfering file using SSH & PuTTY
- date: April 8, 2011
Hello Ubuntu people-who-are-smarter-than-me,
I am trying to transfer a file from my work Win7 computer, to my Ubuntu home server. I can SSH into my server using PuTTY with no problems. I am now trying to push a file using the command
pscp c:\documents\foo.txt [email protected]
and I am typing this in the PuTTY "Host Name(or IP address)" window.
When I do this, this is what I get...
Using username "pscp C:\documents\foo.txt andrew".
pscp C:documents\foo.txt [email protected]
pscp C:documents\foo.txt [email protected]
The "Access denied" occurs after I type my password of course.
I just want to push a file from my Win7 machine to my Ubuntu using SSH and PuTTY. PuTTY is what I have loaded on my work machine.
Need help with git & serving from a remote machine w/o using ssh.
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 18, 2009
I'm trying to move from svn to git, but am having some conceptual issues.
I want a centralized cvs/svn type repository that many people in my office can share. This will hold many, many projects & the number of projects may increase fairly regularly.
I have a few places I can put the repository - on highly available servers. already in the facility.
The problems are:
- I don't want to give anyone's account ssh access to those servers.
- I don't want to make a special "git" user for ssh access on any of those machines.
- I don't want to have to make a <Location> directive in apache's conf file for every new repository that gets created (if I were to serve git from apache)
- And I don't want to store plain text passwords in any file anywhere, regardless of its permissions.
Is it possible to use a non-local repo & satisfy all of the above?
Other suggestions welcome.
Help with SSH Login using RSA keys?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 6, 2010
I'm having trouble logging in with SSH using RSA keys.
server: FreeNAS (FreeBSD) ip: 192.168.0.100
I generated RSA keys on Karmic, added the id_rsa.pub to the authorized_keys file on FreeNAS, then removed the id_rsa.pub from Karmic (this is a poorly documented but necessary step I learned).
My Karmic username is shawn, FreeNAS username is shawnboy.
When I do
ssh -l shawnboy 192.168.0.100
from Karmic it prompts me for my RSA key passphrase which it should do, but after I enter it, it fails and moves on to prompt me for my password. The output for this section (using -vvv on the ssh command) is:
Enter passphrase for key '/home/shawn/.ssh/id_rsa':
debug1: read PEM private key done: type RSA
debug2: we sent a publickey packet, wait for reply
debug1: Authentications that can continue: publickey,password
debug1: Trying private key: /home/shawn/.ssh/id_dsa
debug3: no such identity: /home/shawn/.ssh/id_dsa

Editing a file using PuTTY on my Red Hat 9 server...please, need help
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 1, 2004
Hi all, I recently made the move from managed hosting to my own dedicated root server. The root server runs off of Red Hat 9, and I am having trouble getting into the root to edit a file.
I need to edit the php.ini file, and the only was i see how to do this is using a SSH client like PuTTY, however, I have no idea how to get into the file to edit it.
Do I need to download it, change it, then replace it? Please, I need help.
