I have an old computer that I want to turn in to a backup server. I was planning on using a 1 TB drive connected by a SATA card since the motherboard only has PATA. However when looking everything I've found makes it sound like I need to install the card for it to work. I want to know if I can install Debian to the hard drive through the SATA card or not?

Ubuntu :: Installing On A Computer With Little Or No Internet?

Oct 1, 2010

I live in northern Canada. I am not in a high speed internet zone but use an alternative method which I pay lots of money to get high speed. However I am restricted to 5 GB of traffic per month.

Now I have to computers running Ubuntu. So for example, if I want to install TuxPaint on my first PC then I would go to the software center and it would download then install the software for me. Now if I wanted to install the same program on my second computer it would download it again. The problem is that this would download twice as much from the internet. Is there any way that I can save internet bandwidth by using the download files from my first computer to install the program on my second computer? Similarly, can I only download updates once but install them on both computers?

Debian Configuration :: Connected To Internet Yet Server Not Found?

Sep 20, 2010

I just reinstalled debian on my computer, I've had it working for a long time, only difference is I used to have Cable Internet and now I use DSL. Anywho, I reinstalled debian from the kde CD on the debian website, it auto-configured my network out of the box. My network is connected to the computer, pinging google works perfectly, and ifconfig shows that eth0 is working correctly without any errors. However on both Konqueror and Iceweasel, every time I try to connect to a website, it tells me the server cannot be found. Basically it acts like I don't have internet. Using the terminal works though, I have installed KDE-FULL from the terminal and wicd, so I know I do have internet. I don't know what it could be, like I said, I installed from the cd and this happened. Maybe there's a bug on the KDE debian cd

Security :: Setup Postfix On A Standalone Server Connected Directly To The Internet?

Jul 1, 2010

venturing into unfamiliar territory so I'm hoping someone can help me and make things a little more understandable for me. I have setup Postfix on a standalone server connected directly to the internet. I have got inbound and outbound email working for the most part, but I am worried about security.My fear is that if I leave port 25 open to the outside world spammers will find this and start relaying mail through it and eventually blacklisting the IP attached to this box.

For now, I am hosting mail for a single domain and single user (me) with a few aliases. I plan on expanding to IMAP and SMTP access from the outside at some point, but for now I've been using Mutt in a shell and it's fine for my needs for now.

Here are my current Postfix settings:
alias_database = hash:/etc/aliases
alias_maps = hash:/etc/aliases

Code:

The GUI started up fine and I logged in as root, then I tried Update Manager and received this error message:

Requires installation of untrusted packages

I tried this in terminal window

Code:

and got

W: Failed to fetch [url]........(-5 - No address associated with hostname

So I did System Testing and got the result that my network was fine but my internet failed!

I could do command line update no problem before installing GUI. I can see it on the network on another computer though.

Trying to setup without the GUI is starting to look easier than with.

Ubuntu :: Getting Model Of Monitors Connected To Computer?

Jul 19, 2010

I am currently developing an small program in Python and at a certain point, I need to do some "stuff" depending on the monitors that are connected to the computer. I have an intel vga card with two outputs. I want to do something if one of the screens connected to the output is a "Dell", another something if one of the monitors is a "Nec" and another something if both monitors are connected.

So the question is: Is there any way to get the vendor/model of the monitors currently connected to the computer? I did a little bit testing. I plugged both screens to my vga card (the Nec to the HDMI output and the Dell to the DVI output), and the gnome-display-properties tool properly detected the model, size, resolution... of both screens connected. I would like to know if I can use a command on bash (or a library in python) to get the same information.

The /var/log/Xorg.0.log also shows properly:
(II) intel(0): EDID vendor "NEC", prod id 26345
(II) intel(0): I2C device "HDMIDDC_C:E-EDID segment register" registered at address 0x60.
(II) intel(0): I2C device "HDMIDDC_C:ddc2" registered at address 0xA0.
(II) intel(0): EDID vendor "DEL", prod id 41027

I could always parse that file, but it is not the best solution. I also tried the ddprobe command, but for some reason, it only detects one of the screens (the Dell, connected to a DVI cable). I am currently using Ubuntu 9.04 and Python2.4 (just in case it's relevant).

Ubuntu Networking :: How To Get 10.04 Computer Connected To Win7 Shares

Oct 3, 2010

I'm trying to get my Ubuntu computer to connect my Windows 7 shares. I do have Samba installed and it can "see" my Windows 7 computer...however, I cannot connect to the machine. I think I've heard some issues with the way how Windows 7 deals with networking now and Samba doesn't work with Windows 7 now or something? If possible, I can always use an NFS server and client for my Windows 7 computer.

Ubuntu Networking :: Connected But Can't Get On The Internet?

This is my second day with ubuntu on a dell mini 10v with broadcom wireless card. I hooked up to a wired connection and ubuntu installed the drivers for the broadcom card.When I put the cursor over the wireless icon on the desktop it shows the name of my wireless connection,active,and my ip address but when I open firefox I get a "server not found". I'm confused as what to put in the boxes for ssid,mode,bssid,mac address,and mtu under network connections. I've tried pretty much every conceivable method at my disposal,even went on my d-link router settings and nothing has worked.I do not have windows installed,using 10.4

Ubuntu Networking :: 10.10 Connected To Network But No Internet

Mar 13, 2011

I have a Toshiba Satellite L505D-GS6000, and I installed Ubuntu before and it worked flawlessly until I decided that I had to go back to Win7 because of certain program compatibility issues.I'm back here trying to set it up and am having no issues except for with my wireless. I can see all of the SSID's, I am able to connect to my wireless, and it displays that I have been assigned an IP and all of the other settings given by DHCP.

I have been trying to fix this for hours, googled, searched these forums, and have spent time with some people on the Ubuntu IRC channel and we are unable to come up with a fix.

Print out of sudo lshw -C network:

The strange thing is that although nothing will load when I try to visit facebook.com, google.com, or any other website... I opened the update manager and I noticed that it would download for 30ish seconds, stop and do nothing for 60ish seconds, resume for another 30, stop, resume, etc. until it finished. I am able to ping my router, and 8.8.8.8, but I am unable to ping [URL].

Ubuntu Networking :: Connected To Network But No Internet / Get That?

Feb 24, 2011

On the 25th of January, one of my computers randomly stopped being able to connect to the Internet. It was running a dual boot (Ubuntu 10.04.1 LTS & Windows XP SP2), and is connected to the network via an ethernet cable (no wireless). According to the Network Manager, everything is working okay (there was no change from when I was able to access the Internet).

When I would use Firefox, I would get the message "Waiting for (page)...". However, this is not a Firefox only problem, as every program requiring Internet access (e.g. Evolution) is unable to connect to the Internet.

I compared the Internet settings to those of my father's Windows XP SP1 computer, which is able to connect to the Internet. There was no difference, except for the IP Address and Hardware Address. Because of this, I incorrectly deduced that either the actual Ethernet cable or the wall plug was faulty. I tried using a different cable and connecting to the Ethernet wall plug used by the aforementioned computer. Nothing changed. I was still unable to connect.

I didn't worry about it until Tuesday, when my other computer had exactly the same problem. It is running a triple boot between Ubuntu 10.04.1 LTS, Ubuntu 9.04 and Windows XP SP2, and I am unable to obtain Internet access using any partition. As with the previous case, my computer showed no change in the Internet settings, and the computer also shows it as being connected to the network. It is also connected via an Ethernet cable.
