Squid3 + webmin guide?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 26, 2012
I have set up numerous squid boxes before (that actually worked) but for whatever reason it is just not working this time. What I am looking for is a guide for SQUID3 using webmin. I used the guide from the webmin page but it is so old that the screenshots are from squid 2.4... I have the webmin book - but it is from 2003...
What is driving me nuts is that I have two functional squid3 servers running - I copy the very same settings to the new server and squid simply won't start.
Any help greatly appreciated.
"Boot loader didn't return any data" following Xen Guide
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 12, 2013
I have an Ubuntu 12.10 install. I followed the Xen Guide at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Xen about two weeks ago and found everything worked fine. I then tried again recently (another completely clean setup), and found I was unable to start the Ubuntu guest VM, receiving "Error: Boot loader didn't return any data".
I think the only difference is that the second time I did an "apt-get upgrade" before starting the Xen Guide. There seems to be a bug reported:
It sounds like pygrub can't handle the submenu blocks, although removing the submenus didn't seem to work for me - pygrub still doesn't find the kernel when I run pygrub directly, pointing it at the root partition of the guest. Is anyone else seeing this issue?
Please guide Linux newb replacing XP w/ Ubuntu on Acer Aspire One
location: linuxquestions.com - date: December 19, 2009
Machine - Acer Aspire One - model no. KAV10. NB - this is a netbook w/ no cd/dvd drive. I have an SD slot and can make use of an external USB hard drive if necessary.
Me - no expert, but reasonably experienced and confident w/ Mac and Windoze.
System requirements - internet research (via 2-Wire Gateway - 2700 HG-E2 with wireless disabled); writing (currently use and like Wordpad); store and view photos; download, store and play music.
I am a conservative computer user, I avoid new software as much as possible and like to keep my machine clean and simple. Generally speaking I go for simple and classic--if it ain't broke...
Unless this board convinces me otherwise I have settled on Ubuntu.
All files on my machine will be backed up and I will be happy to format my hard drive (it currently has 100+GB free space). I want Micros*** gone out of my life forever.
Any advice is welcome as I am a total Linux newb.
Specific questions -
Can I download an ISO onto

Tomcat 6 install guide...

i found this on the web & it works so i thought id share it with yous here
Installing Tomcat 6 on Ubuntu
If you are running Ubuntu and want to use the Tomcat servlet container, you should not use the version from the repositories as it just doesn't work correctly. Instead you'll need to use the manual installation process that I'm outlining here.
Before you install Tomcat you'll want to make sure that you've installed Java. I would assume if you are trying to install Tomcat you've already installed java, but if you aren't sure you can check with the dpkg command like so:
dpkg –get-selections | grep sun-java
This should give you this output if you already installed java:
If that command has no results, you'll want to install the latest version with this command:

This is an ALTERNATE version of the installation. If you want gnome easily, simply find it in the software center. This method may supply you with a newer version of gnome, however.
This is a very simple guide for new users.
Gnome is a desktop preferred by some over the default unity.
Here is how to install it on Ubuntu 12.04/12.10/13.04!

Complete guide for sources.list and mirror.list
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 7, 2013
Good day Ubuntu Experts,
I had downloaded and maintained Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin 64 bit. However, I find it strange when trying to update the system into the latest package version.
while running :
# apt-get upgrade
# apt-get dist-upgrade
# apt-get upgrade
nothing is upgraded at all. the OS has not been updated at all.
However, when trying to install a new package, it can go through and install properly.
I also run :
# apt-get clean
# apt-get update
to clean the cache and downloaded package headers from repo. However, still stuck in the problem.
the sources.list content as follows :
deb [ arch=amd64 ] file:/media/HDD-2/root/Ubuntu-12.04-AMD64/mirror/kambing.ui.ac.id/ubuntu/ dists/precise/main/binary-amd64/
the /media/HDD-2 is a local hard disk with NTFS system. I shared this disk with Windows OS.
1. Kindly advice what is going wrong.
2. Is there a complete reference and comprehensive guide to explain the /etc/apt/mirror.list and /etc/apt/s
