Why does Pidgin / Gmail keep disconnecting me at random?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 19, 2009
Every few minutes, when using Gmail chat, I get this message in my buddy list that I've been disconnected. But it won't auto-reconnect, and it doesn't really notify me well -- I have to be watching the buddy list at the time to see the disconnect message, which is extremely annoying.
Is there any way to get Gmail to auto-reconnect? Does anyone know why this might be happening? I realize it's very little to go on...

Why does my computer keep pausing when I run a progam using the USBserial ports?
location: linuxexchange.com - date: September 27, 2013
I've written a program that uses three serial ports (two serial ports are on one USB -> serial connector, the other serial port is on its own USB -> serial connector). When I'm running the program, every 5 seconds or so, my computer stops responding, as if the kernel is busy doing something. I'm not writing any files, so it's not flushing to disk, and I'm not running out of memory, so it's not swapping. What else could it be? could it be flushing the serial port or something? That would be weird, because I wait for a response from the serial ports before I write the next bit of data to them.
It happens less if I don't use the last serial port (the one on it's own USB port).

Why does Linux Mint work for me and Ubuntu doesn't?

How come I get lockups and freezes with Ubuntu 7.10 but not with Linux Mint Daryna? Aren't they supposed to be similar? What did Linux Mint do different?
FAQ: Why does my time in Windows keep getting reset to UTC?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 27, 2004
Ubuntu assumes by default that the system clock is set to UTC. To change this behavior:
sudo gedit /etc/default/rcS
Find the line UTC=yes
Change it to UTC=no
Save the file.
The next time you reboot to Windows, your time will be correct. (Assuming that the time in Ubuntu was correct when you edited the file)
[SOLVED] why does ssh to my server give me a blank shell?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 21, 2011
This is my first attempt at ssh and I ran into the following problem - tried to find an answer and maybe it is an obvious one but haven't found it yet - :
i can log into my server using ssh (both from windows via Putty and from my puredyne computer using the terminal), but once I've logged in there is only a blank terminal that doesn't respond to commands. It is as if I had gotten up a notebook where I can write stuff, but the computer doesnt give a hoot what it is! : )
Ideas? Am i missing something?
thx for any help!

What is the dot at the end of ls permissions, and why does it prevent me from making a backup of a file
-rw-r--r--. 1 hwttdz hwttdz 15 2009-11-04 13:12 test.txt
^ that guy
It's attached to some of the files in my home directory, which I would rather not post the entire contents of. And how can I fix it. I'm connecting to the machine with ssh, but I don't figure that should matter.
Edit: I figured out what the dot is, it means the file has an access list with SELinux. So I guess I need to know how to strip this access list off of all my files. And I don't have selinux installed.
Edit: I tried to install selinux, which of course caused some error when attempting to login with ssh, functionally breaking the machine. And by error I don't mean the machine is trying to be more secure, I mean glibc invalid pointer.
why does my fstab file keep canceling my changes to it?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 7, 2008
Pursuant to this thread: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...for-me-618400/
...Something strange keeps happening. The fstab changes suggested by Budword worked as desired once, but they keep reverting to what they were. Changing "noauto" to "auto" and adding "rw" was supposed to automount the partition and make sure I could write to it. I have a text file containing my to-do list set to autostart. As before, it opens an empty file; from checking the properties of its partition, I know I got the empty file because it didn't automount as it was supposed to. (Further proof of that: as soon as I mount the partition and reopen the file, I can see it.)
So I opened the fstab file again, and found that auto is back to "noauto" for the partition in question, and "rw" has disappeared. The relevant content now says:
# Dynamic entries below
/dev/sda1 /mnt/sda1 vfat,ext3,ext2,reiserfs noauto,users,exec 0 0
/dev/sda3 /mnt/sda3 ext3 noauto,u
Why does my external hard disk drive keep changing mount points?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 14, 2012
I have an external Western Digital My Passport 2.00 TB USB 3.0 Portable hard disk drive which I formatted using the /ext4 file system and I used LUKS for full-disk encryption. It is mounted as /media/Data Drive 4 in Nautilus. I have a System76 Lemur Ultra Thin (lemu4) notebook PC with Ubuntu 12.10 64 bit GNU/Linux. Every time I shut down my System76 PC and I reboot it, it changes the mount point for my WD portable hard disk drive. Previously, it would mount it as /media/Data Drive 4_, /media/Data Drive 41 and now it is currently mounted as /media/Data Drive 42. This causes CrashPlan to do a data de-duplication from scratch repeatedly.
Why is this happening?
How do I fix this problem so that it will mount as /media/Data Drive 4?
Please help me with detailed step-by-step instructions. Thank you.
Why does msmtp fail with Gmail?
- date: April 28, 2012
OK, I've been searching and reading threads for weeks and nothing has solved my problem.
I'm trying to use msmtp to send system notification emails to my Gmail account. It worked initially, but somewhere along the line it stopped. Not exactly sure when because I only recently started going through the log files to check for unseen errors. My msmtp.log is full of:
Apr 28 06:42:53 host=smtp.gmail.com tls=on auth=on [email protected] [email protected] [email protected]
errormsg='cannot connect to smtp.gmail.com, port 587: Connection timed out' exitcode=EX_TEMPFAIL
my msmtprc file is:
user [email protected]
from [email protected]
I have port 587 and 53 (among others) opened up in UFW and can ping smtp.gmail.com no problem.
Anybody have any ideas? TIA.
