Ubuntu Servers :: Install The GUI Or Is There A Server With The GUI Pre-installed

Dec 27, 2010

im totally rubbish at command line. I have a small business server for home use, thats where i work from. I have Windows Small Business Server but a lot of the time its crap and am trying Linux. I have Ubuntu 10.10 installed on a desktop and while im new to it im very impressed. I also have a MAC and i must say id rather have Ubuntu.

Now i want to use Linux Server but its all command line and i want the GUI. Iv tried to do this on Ubuntu Server 9.04 and no sucess at all , iv followed the instructions from other posts, (1) sudo apt-get update, (2) sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop and nothing works. Is there a way to install the GUI or is there a Linux Server with the GUI pre-installed?

Ubuntu Servers :: New Server 10.10 Installed - Out-of-the-box Security?

Oct 11, 2010

I've just setup a new Ubuntu Server 10.10 serving SVN through Apache (HTTP, HTTPS).It seems all ports are open by default on this new server. Why is this? Do I need to lock it down with iptables, or is it secure as it is anyway (somehow)?

Ubuntu Servers :: After Clean Install - Network Cards Not Installed?

Feb 10, 2010

I have a Proliant 7000 with 4 interfaces across 2 cards - 3 intel 10/100Tx and 1 intel 100FX. During install it detected the 3 tx interfaces - but couldnt see the network - post install the network devices were no longer there, their devices missing from /dev/.

Neither google nor a forum search have been particularly edifying, is this a known issue with any cards? If so is there a known fix? ifconfig gives me information for loopback only as expected.

Ubuntu Servers :: Just Installed Ubuntu 9.10 - But Port 80 Blocked - Can Not Find Server/location

Apr 12, 2010

I installed Ubuntu 9.10 and tomcat 6 java servlet container. I am trying to run the tomcat server on port 80, so I edited tomcat's configuration file (server.xml) and changed the default port from "8080" to "80". I launched tomcat server, went to my browser and entered:[url], but it says can not find server/location. Then I edit the server.xml and revert back to port "8080" and then enter: [url] and everything works fine. So my guess is some other service is taking up port 80, but I would think not, since I just installed Ubuntu and made sure apache isn't installed or running.

So I went to "System" --> "Administration", then choose "Network Tools". I then executed Netstat and did not see anything taking up port 80, but I do see port 8080 taken (assuming it is the tomcat server). Then I also did a Port Scan and entered my IP number. Again, I don't see port 80 taken, but do see 8080 being used.

I had a winxp laptop computer behind home wireless and was running tomcat 6 server fine with it, but it over-heated and died recently. So I got a used laptop and just installed Ubuntu 9.10. I have not changed my wireless router settings. It is the same as before. So I have ruled out my home's hardware/network equipment.

So here now I sit, wondering what is up?

For security reasons, is port 80 initially blocked by Ubuntu for some reason? Is there something I have to do beforehand to free up port 80?

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Card Recognized By Install CD But Not After Server Installed

Dec 26, 2010

I'm working with 10.10 (Maverick) on an older Compaq laptop. Wireless card is a Cisco Aironet 350. This card is listed as supported and drivers included in the server distro.

During the Network configuration portion of the install, I selected eth1 (wireless); the card came active and a valid network connection was established.

However, after the full server installation the interface (eth1) is not seen.

What's confusing is that modprobe -l shows the drivers as present:


Insertion and removal of the card is noted in /var/log/messages:

pcmcia_socket pcmcia_socket1 pccard: card ejected from slot 1
pcmcia_socket pcmcia_socket1 pccard: card inserted into slot 1

(I'd be happy to supply more info, but currently set up with Fluxbox and I'll be darned if I can get copy from the xterm to paste into Firefox...)

Ubuntu Installation :: Fresh Install Of Server / There Are 320 Packages Manually Installed

Jun 3, 2011

I want to some how get a list of the packages I installed. I was hoping that I could just list all of the packages that were not installed automatically as a dependency. It turns out that there are 320 packages that match that description (I think). Is there a way to do what I want to do? Shouldn't all of these dependencies have been installed as a handful of meta-packages instead?

Ubuntu Servers :: Can't Install APC On Server 10.04

Aug 3, 2010

I'm trying to install Alternative PHP Cache on my web server and am running into an error with pecl.


checking whether apc needs to get compiler flags from apxs...I was not able to successfully run APXS. Possible reasons:

1. Perl is not installed;
2. Apache was not compiled with DSO support (--enable-module=so);
3. 'apxs' is not in your path. Try to use --with-apxs=/path/to/apxs

The output of /var/tmp/pear-build-root/APC-3.0.19/y follows

/tmp/pear/temp/APC/configure: line 4113: /var/tmp/pear-build-root/APC-3.0.19/y: No such file or directory

Ubuntu Servers :: Install An IRC Server On Website?

Jan 4, 2010

I'd like to install an IRC server on my website (it's hosted on another server location).I can log into the server side of things but am not sure how much control I have of installing applications. I'd like an IRC that's easy to install and easy to set-up. I logged into the cPanel page of the site and found this "general server information":

Operating system: Linux
Kernel version: 2.6.9-78.0.22.EL
Machine type: i686
Apache version: 1.3.41 (Unix)


Unfortunately there's not an IRCd/server type of application available on the "Fantistico Deluxe" application installer feature.

Ubuntu Servers :: Install 10.04 LTS Server With All The Defaults?

Jun 14, 2010

So when I install 10.04 LTS server with all the defaults. ie root parted with lvm, I get a grub error. Apparently the install script at the end of the installation does not take into account that I might install ubuntu on a different drive.

Without LVM, I can get it to work. If I drop down to shell and mount the root drive, then run:

grub-install --root-directory=/ /dev/sdc And all is good. But I want LVM on my boot drive. Does anybody out there know of an easy way of doing this? This really should be a bug. But I'm too much a noob to know where to issue this.

Ubuntu Servers :: PXE Install Server With ProxyDHCP?

Oct 27, 2010

This is a draft write up. There could possibly be some errors in paths.

EDIT:I made a test version of a live PXE CD.


excersise is a pxe install & utility server targeted to home users.This is particular interesting since many device sold now does not have an optical drive.We want to use a proxyDHcp since most people are using dhcp on a home router without pxe support. I do not include a sub structure 32bit/64bit, in this example all is 32bit.I have documented this since it was quite a struggle to put it together. Not a lot of correct information out there.I think a consilidated wiki page should be created.My own contribution is making it work and collecting the info. I have copied much of it from:

Ubuntu Servers :: How To Install USB Printer On Server 11.04?

Jul 7, 2011

I installed Server 11.04 and selected the options for the print server and file server. I would like to add a HP Officejet J3680 printer (USB connection) but cannot figure out how. On a remote computer running Ubuntu 11.04 desktop, I tried using the CUPS web interfce but I keep getting the "Unable to connect" message. I installed webmin on the same remote computer and tried installing it that way. That way, I selected "USB Printer 1" and used "generic postscript driver" This did not work. I do not know how to install a printer. I'll use command line on the server if necessary. How is this done?

Ubuntu Servers :: Install Server On An Alix2d2 Board?

Jan 14, 2010

I tried to install Ubuntu Server on an Alix2d2 board: [URL]It has a CF card connected with an IDE interface and no vga output. The processor is a AMD Geode. I'm aware that I need a 386 kernel as described in the german wiki:


What I did so far:

Installed imedia linux PCengines Alix build [URL] on an other Ubuntu machine with usb cf interface. This worked but I don't know how I can install Ubuntu from imedia linux.

Installed Ubuntu Server on the same Ubuntu machine. Installed the 386 kernel and changed the grub config file to enable the serial output to a terminal and updated grub[URL]. I created the file /etc/init/ttyS0.conf that the serial interface still works after the bootloader [URL].Unfortunately the alix board writes only "GRUB loading." and some empty lines.

Tried to boot with Tftpd32.exe by Ph. Jounin following this guide: [URL] So I set up a TFPT server following this german wiki: [URL]As advised changed /etc/inetd.conf and /etc/default/tftpd-hpa, prepared the boot image and the DHCP server. This should be enough on the server. I have to write N over the serial port to the board while it performs memory test to enable PXE boot. This was partly successful: it gets an IP adress but afterwards nothing happens. I can't find any error message in the syslog.

I attached my configuration files. As boot image I used [URL] and used the following commands to bring it into the right place:


sudo tar -xvzf netboot.tar.gz -C /var/lib/tftpboot/
sudo chown -R nobody:nogroup /var/lib/tftpboot

installing Ubuntu Server with PXE or from the other machine to the CF card or even directly from imedia linux.

Ubuntu Servers :: Install And Configure Denyhosts On 10.04 Server?

I've been running denyhosts on Ubuntu 8.04 servers without any problems using the how-to found hereow that I have a new Ubuntu 10.04 server running, I thought I would just install denyhosts from the Ubuntu repository not realizing that the paths and filenames of the install are different from the how-to I am used to using.I figured out what the name of the new denyhosts config file is (at least new to me) and the new location, but I'm not sure about the "allowed-hosts" config file.Does anybody know where the new path for this file is and whether the filename is still the same?

Ubuntu Servers :: 10.04 Server Edition Install Fail ?

I tried installing Ubuntu LTS 10.04 Server Edition 64 bit on one of my drives today...

The install completed fine until it went to reboot. Then it faills while initializing the graphics. It tries (a purple flash on the screen) then goes to a text based dump on the monitor.

Ubuntu LTS 10.04 Desktop Edition run great on this machine. I'm wondering if the Server Edition confused by multiple instances of a video card? This computer is SLI bridged:


Is the xorg or whatever video subsystem that the server edition uses different than Desktop Edition?

Ubuntu Servers :: Safe To Install Print Server To LAMP On 10.04.1?

Jan 20, 2011

I need to first point out that I am a complete n00b when it comes to Ubuntu Server, and I managed to install Ubuntu Server 10.04.1 (on a screen-less Acer Aspire 5100 laptop) with Apache2, MySQL, OpenSSH, & PHP5. I currently have this server (hosting my website) behind a linksys router with only port 22, and 80 forwarded to its ip address. Now my question is: Would it be safe to configure a print server on the same machine in order to print from the 3 other computers on my router to one printer, or are there security risks involved (like what I have heard with LAMP servers and Samba on the same machine)? I am also wondering if it is safe the way I configured port 80 & 22? It has extremely long passwords, and I also went through the secure installation of one of the programs setting a root password too... But can somebody please help me with my server? I am very surprised I have gone this far in my first 2 weeks of my Web Scripting class too!
