tgz ubuntu backup from amd > different intel computer
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 17, 2013
I have a tgz backup of the entire installation of an amd ubuntu 10.04 server. Now, when the computer said a final farewell, I wonder how I could restore to an intel computer?
Should I try to extract the files to the root and hope for the best? Or, should I rather install the server from scratch, and try to copy in the backupfiles some way? Should I rather install a newer version right away?
I have apache, php, mysql, rails (redmine) and webmin installed (these are the most important parts).
Ubuntu Server 10.10 How do I install Unzip?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 20, 2010
I am trying to set up a dedicated gaming server, but I can't seem to get the unzip software to install (hopefully not an omen).
sudo apt-get install unzip
E: Package 'unzip' has no installation candidate
I have scoured Google for an answer to this, but nothing seems to work.
Did something change between 9.10 and 10.10? Or are things done very differently between the Server and Desktop versions of Ubuntu?
ubuntu cron unzip
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 11, 2010
Problem is what unzip command, finish before all unzip is done.
if [ -f www_base.zip ]
/bin/rm -rf /home/ftpuser/www_base/www_base/
in archive www_base.zip is around 10k files.
but unzip command, extract just about 100.
And when I run this script manual, it work perfectly, but if it's run from cron, unzip not all files.
What can be a problem?
Ubuntu crashes during big files copy or unzip
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 8, 2010
Hi, I've got a big problem with my ubuntu because it crashes witout error messages during copy of big files (up to 600 Mb) or when unzip (extract) big files.
Without any error message it freezes, I can't move mouse and the keyboard doesn't work.
When I unzip big dimensions files It crashes and after some time the notebook turns off.
I've tried using "top" in another terminal during operations but there's not suspect activities or big consumption of memory.
I also want to say that I've got more than 20Gb of free space, so It's not a space problem.
Using Windows or using the Live CD of the my same Ubuntu version all works perfectly
What can I do?
Is it a OS bug? Is there a solution for my problem or a way to find an error message and solve it? [Even using -v option during copy non error message appear before system crash]
Thanks to all who want to help me!
p.s. My Ubuntu version is 10.010 - Maverick Meerkat with GNOME Desktop 2.32.0

Ubuntu 12.10 Cinnamon vs Mint 14 Cinnamon
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 1, 2013
I'm switching from a Mac to Linux and am still in doubt as to which flavour I'm going to be using.
Ubuntu seemed like the obvious choice but after trying out several distros (many of which Ubuntu based) I decided that Mint Cinnamon was going to be it.
Until I found out you can install the Cinnamon desktop on ubuntu. Which I tried.
Hmm. It looks equally nice as it does on Mint but still, I've got the impression it runs just that tiny bit better on Mint (i.e. more fluid - and I tend to ditch something at the first sign of even the slightest hint of 'jerkyness').
Ubuntu would seem like the logical step when coming from a Mac : it's the most popular distro out there and the Unity interface in some ways is very similar to OS X. But, I have to say, I 'dislike' Unity with a passion (not going to use the word 'hate', seems a bit too strong - it was OK I guess in 12.04, terribly slow in 12.10). Mint Cinnamon touched me right away (although I'm currently trying out OpenSuse 12.3 KDE and I must

Just when I was about to install Ubuntu, I had a "why not look at Mint" question thrown at me. The reasons, my friends said, is that the Mint desktop (Cinnamon) is more like Win 7 plus the fact that Ubuntu has "lost its way" like Microsoft did with its illegitimate child Windows 8, in trying to be both Desktop and Tablet Operating System. True or False?
1) I am a Desktop only user - for business, no gaming whatsoever
2) I never have used the Windows Start Button except to shut down the computer. I never start programs from the Start Menu. I Do Not Need a Start Button.
3) I prefer to organize my icons with a program called "Fences"; and would like my Taskbar on the bottom of the screen(s) and absolutely not on the side of the screen
4) I need to network with Win 7 workstations and a file server.
2) Which of the two is faster? Ubuntu or M

Let's compare the latest versions of the two. What are the differences? Real differences, not mint is green. Things related to 64 bit, flash, codecs and other technical distinctions.
