I installed Ubuntu successfully using rescue mode on the alternate cd, and let Ubuntu use an internal boot and home. At the final stage grub refused to install to the MBR, and then refused to install to my /boot partition on /dev/sda2. It said: No boot loader has been installed, either because you chose not to or because your specific architecture doesn't support a boot loader yet. You will need to boot manually with the /vmlinuz kernel on partition /dev/mapper/volumegroup-natty and root=/dev/mapper/volumegroup-natty passed as a kernel argument. Returning to debian, I did a update-grub, which detects Windows and Ubuntu:
How do I make grub decrypt the LUKS partition before attempting to load the Ubuntu kernel?

Just finished downloading a game in .run format, i downloaded it to my Home>Downloads folder and ran these commands in terminal: (game is tremulous if it matters)
chmod +x tremulous.run ./tremulous.run
It started it up in the terminal and i began working my way through the installation process, and i tried to install it into my Home>Games folder. (Is it supposed to be home>games or your username>games?)
and it said PERMISSION DENIED. No write permission to Home/Games/

First off I am aware ureadahead isn't in the repos, but thought this forum would fit the best regardless. I installed upstart, then the deb package on packages.ubuntu.com and rebooted. The /var/lib/ureadahead folder exists but there are no .pack files in that folder. I tried running "service ureadahead start" but it said "Service failed to start". Anyone used ureadahead on Debian?
I'm running WoW through wine. In order to install addons I need to give all the files in the program permission to execute as a program. the problem is I can't (dont know how) just right click the folder and give everything inside permission i have to open each one and give them all permission, which can quickly turn into hundreds depending on the addon. how to give permission to execute as a program to all the files in a folder at once it would save me a lot of clicking and time.

I've created a new user for a SSH tunnel only.After login I can access all directories because permissions is set for "Others" to "Access files".Now my question: Is this normal that permissions for Folder access for "Others" is always set to "Access files"?I don't want my SSH tunnel user accessing the directories.
Terribly new to Linux and find it mindboggling. I work on brain imaging and unfortunately all of the analysis runs on Linux, and I do not understand computers well coming as I do from a medical background. So my question - There are various folders of patient MRI scans (folders called P1, P2, P3 etc) and within them are enclosed certain files that I am interested in (always called the same name in all folders, say image001). I would like a script that enables me to copy and move this image001 in all these individual folders to another folder altogether.
I have an NFS on my desktop, and mount it from my laptop: 192.168.1.22:/mnt/max/share /mnt/reddevil_nfs nfs rsize=8192,wsize=9182,timeo=9 Occasionally, access to the files suddenly "freezes". For example, if I try to run "ls /mnt" from the client, nothing will be printed, Ctrl-c does nothing, and the prompt never reappears; or, if I try to view that directory from thunar, thunar will freeze, or if I am playing a video from the share in mplayer, mplayer will freeze. I tried to unmount it:
umount -f /mnt/reddevil_nfs umount2: Device or resource busy umount.nfs: /mnt/reddevil_nfs: device is busy umount2: Device or resource busy umount.nfs: /mnt/reddevil_nfs: device is busy

I need to write a shell script which can ready content of the folder and place files on remote FTP server. I need to make sure that a file that is already placed on remote FTP server is not attempted second time. The file names will be something like Records-2011-05-09. The files will be generated by MySQL every hour.
I've a question about a connection to a shared folder on a pc behind an ubuntu 10.04 server. The Ubuntu machine itself is behind a Cisco router. Cisco router has a nat 1-to-1 to Ubuntu machine with the static public ip x.y.x.z The Ubuntu machine has one only interfaces eth0 bridged with a virtual tap0 in the virtual br0 interface. This because on the Ubuntu machine is running OpenVPN in bridged mode. I want to reach a private share on the host 192.168.100.2 using the x.y.w.z static IP. Is that possibile? Ubuntu machine has no firewall running (I was not able to run shorewall firewall for now).
