May 24, 2010

I'm trying to figure out how to access the local part and the domain part of an email address in postfix's main.cf. For example, myname@mydomain.net has myname as the local part and mydomain.net as the domain part.I get the whole email address with %s. I want to speed up the lookups by writing better database queries.I've had no luck finding this in the otherwise well documented postfix.

Ubuntu Installation :: Re Partition Space In Middle Of Drive Without Messing With Windows(sda1&2) And Shared Part

Jul 23, 2010

I've dual booted Ubuntu and Windows for years now and I've installed OSx86 on a separate drive which Grub2 picked up automagically and everything has been working great -- except I'm out of space. So I bought a 1.5 TB drive and installed win7 into sda1 (100MB NTFS bootloader for windows) and sda2 (50 GB NTFS windows drive). I now want to install two or three flavors of Linux. I'm thinking Ubuntu 10.04, Debian 5.05, and (if I'm bold enough) gentoo. each in 50GB partitions. I've already partitioned the drive a bit putting a 1.2 TB shared NTFS partition at the end (sda10), and a 2 GB swap parition just before that(sda9) My questions are:

(1) can all my linux distro's share that 2GB swap, or does each need it's own dedicated swap partition (installers generally assume you do)?

(2) can I re-partition space in the middle of the drive without messing with windows(sda1&2) and the shared part. (sda10)?

The space in the volume name seems to disagree with fstab and terminal, I can't change the volume name either as I do not have access to Windows at this time. Is there a way I can help fstab or the terminal to recognize the space in part of the volume name?

Ubuntu Installation :: Use The 72.15Gb Unallocated Space For Windows7?

Mar 15, 2011

I've been trying to install Windows7 along side of Ubuntu 10.10, but trying to sort out the partitioning is a little difficult to figure out.

I have Ubuntu already installed Here is the screen shot for you from Gparted. gparted.jpg

I want to use the 72.15Gb unallocated space for Windows7, and I believe that that (Windows) needs to be on it's own partition. I just can't figure out how to get it to its own partition.

Ubuntu Installation :: Unmount Part Error In 11.04 Install

Mar 15, 2010

I ran the ubuntu 11.04 live CD on my laptop that had an earlier version of ubuntu (9 maybe??). I really liked what I saw so I used the Install ubuntu 11.04 wizard and chose the option to override the earlier version. During the 'Importing document and settings' step a pop-up entitled Failed to unmount partitions. the body stated: migration-assistant needs to mount a partition, but cannot do so because the following mount partition could not be unmounted:


The only app showing on the taskbar is the Install. this is running from the live CD.

Ubuntu :: Packages Part Of Iso Image File Installation

Feb 24, 2010

When I look in /var/cache/apt/archives/, I see packages I recognize that I downloaded. But, I also see packages that I know I did not download, but rather were part of the initial installation of the image iso file on the CD. For example, the package for Abiword is in there. I would like to know which packages in this directory I installed, and which were part of the initial installation.

How do I know which packages are part of the installation from the image iso file on the CD? Once I know that, I would make a copy of all the other packages in this folder onto a DVD, so if I ever need to reinstall Ubuntu 9.10 I will know which packages to install over and above those part of the initial installation off the iso CD.

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Access Gui Part Way Through Dist-upgrade

May 19, 2010

I am doing a dist-upgrade from 8.04LTS to 8.09. I use usb KVM switch, and I keep my eye on it so that I can respond to the usual configuration file prompts that pop up. For a while everything went fine, but suddenly I find that I can't use the keyboard to log in and check the progress (the mouse is completely unresponsive). Here's the kicker though: the computer is fine. I can use 'Ctrl-Alt F1' through F7, and the computer responds appropriately; it just doesn't do anything when the login screen is up.

I checked the /var/log/dist-upgrade/term.log, and if I understand it correctly, whether or not to keep /etc/mysql/my.conf is currently up for question. Is there any way to take back control of the computer without interrupting the upgrade? Not knowing very much about the install process, it seems like the GUI stopped polling for input.

Ubuntu Installation :: Boot ISO From One Part Of Drive And Install On Other

Mar 18, 2011

I tried to install ubuntu 10.10 onto an HP laptop and could not get anything to boot apart from windows vista. When I entered the boot options and selected CD to try and load the ubuntu CD it just booted off the HDD repeatedly. I removed (foolishly perhaps) the HDD and formatted it on my other machine, then created a start-up disk for ubuntu on it. I re-installed the hard drive and loaded ubuntu with no problems, but I can't install it. What do I need to do to the HDD (partitions, flags, etc) to make it so I can boot the iso from one part of the drive and install on the other?

Fedora Installation :: 30 GB LVM Partition By Just Resizing Part Of The Volume?

Sep 1, 2010

I have been using Ubuntu for about a year and I decided to switch to Fedora just to see how it goes with getting everything in my system working again. I would say that with Ubuntu and Fedora installations I have installed and reinstalled 15 times, which I mention because I am not new to installing linux. I have used GParted to partition and resize my HD numerous times and reinstalled linux on a partition and so on. I know how to do all of that without any problems.

NOW HERE IS WHAT HAPPENED... I installed Fedora on my Desktop which I had partitioned into a 190 GB partition onto which Windows is installed and then I had another 30 GB partition onto which I chose to install Fedora. I chose the "replace existing Linux systems" in anaconda... and what resulted was a 30 GB partition with Fedora that is now showing up as LVM. I have never seen an LVM partition and I am not sure if I can use GPARTED to resize it without destroying it. I have used GPARTED to resize Linux partitions before, but they were never showing up as LVM. The forums on GPARTED only show info from about a year or two ago.

Here is what I want to do (and reading around on forums doesn't really give a good explanation of whether it is possible)... Is it possible to install Linux Mint into that 30 GB Fedora LVM partition by just resizing the Fedora part of the volume? So, the question is this: How can I resize the Fedora part of the LVM volume and then install Mint into that LVM partition?

If Fedora was on an ordinary 30 GB partition I would have no problem with using GPARTED to chop that in half and then use the 15 GB I freed up to install Mint. I just don't want to destroy the Fedora stuff by messing around the with the LVM partition so I would like to hear from others who have worked around this issue and please don't link to the ordinary LVM howto's you get through a simple google search as I have already read them and I don't find them too illuminating.

Debian Installation :: MacbookPro - Unable To Sync GPT And MBR Part Tables

Apr 22, 2011

I'm trying to install Debian 6.0.1a on a MacBookPro5,5 (intel core 2 duo - EFI firmware). I have rEFIt 0.14 and a live cd of Debian (on a usb stick). I'm installing Debian on a usb stick. The installation process goes along smoothly, but then, it's impossible to boot up the freshly installed system (I get a black screen with a blinking cursor). I read that this is a common problem but all the solutions I have found have not worked for me.

The underlying idea is that since Macs have EFI firmware instead of a BIOS, the partition tables of devices are different (GPT for EFI versus MBR for BIOS), and grub is incompatible with GPT (I know there is an EFI version of grub but it is said to not work well). So the devices must have both a GPT partition table and a MBR one. These have to be "synced".
The tools available for this are:

- rEFIt can sync the partitions, but I haven't managed to have it sync them on any other device than the main hardrive. If I sync the main hardrive, then even the live cd (which is on a usb stick) won't boot (black screen with "GRUB _").
- Debian has a tool called gptsync, which returns a message saying "no data partition in gpt table, nothing to sync".
- Mac OS X has a tool called gptsync which returns a message saying "unknown partition type detected - I'm not touching this disc".

The reason there is no data partition is that gptsync sees my main partition as "EFI system". If I could change that, maybe I could sync the partition tables. Can that be done? Also, something I don't understand is: the live cd boots fine without grub. So why do I need grub? Couldn't the system boot up without it like the live cd does?

Fedora Installation :: How To Extract Bootable Part From The Installation DVD

Jun 24, 2010

I need to install fedora on my new 16 DELL servers. I will doing it through DRAC (Dell remote access console) but DRAC can mount only one ISO at a time. I am planning to do multiple installations at the same time.hence i need multiple boot.iso files for each and every DRAC console that I open for each server.The question is...How to extract just the bootable part from the fedora DVD? I don't whether it should be called boot.iso, but I hope you get my point.I believe it has got something to do with the "isolinux" folder on the DVD, but I don't know what and how.

Fedora Installation :: Get F14 Updates As Part Of A Kickstart Installation

I'd like to write a kickstart file that installs available Fedora 14 updates as part of the installation process, much as if I was doing a standard Fedora 14 installation and had enabled the 'updates' repo.

So my question is, is there an easy way to do this? I don't want to have to go down the route of downloading all updated packages and maintaining my own update repo (or indeed, creating a repo with the dependencies listed above).

Ubuntu :: Disk Full - Can't Free Any Disk Space

Jan 2, 2010

I'm running mythbuntu 9.04 and am having an issue with disk space.

I try 'rm' various log files but the space I free up lasts less than a minute before the disk reports as being full once more.

df -Th | sort gives:


/dev/sda1 ext3 8.3G 7.9G 0 100% /
/dev/sda6 ext3 138G 125G 6.3G 96% /music
/dev/sda7 xfs 783G 617G 167G 79% /videos
/dev/sdb2 xfs 344G 242G 103G 71% /recordings


There's nothing enormous in /var/log and my trash and the root trash are empty.

why size and used fields are not the same despite 100% usage being reported on sda1..

Ubuntu Installation :: Screen Resolution Crashed - Could Not See The Right Part Of The Same "nvidia" Window

Jul 30, 2010

I was wandering around the system parameters and saw that there was an option to activate a non-open nvidia driver for my Asus Emachine EL1200 with Ubuntu 8.04 install (pre-installed, worked fine for a year now). So I did. However, when I restarted, my screen resolution was changed to 800*600 or so, no good. Although I could not see the right part of the same "nvidia" window, I managed to deactivate the driver. Regretfully when restarting the screen resolution was still 800*600. I thought it was 1440*900 for my Asus VK192S-B (checked it on internet) but it didn't work (did not check the refreshrate at that time). So I stared to fiddle around and stupidly accepted a 1280 * 800. As I said before the resolution is completely f***up now. I have about 4 copies of my desktop and the worst part is there are lines over it and I can not see what the windows say. I manage to get the resolution config screen, but can not get the right optios selected, working "blindfolded".

I looked at this helpful forum and identified the /etc/x11/xorg.conf file as the important file. Also I saw a xorg.conf.failsafe file with my original config! With the recovery cd of Asus I managed o set up a live session and actually can open the xorg.conf file and see the damned line with 1280*800. Regretfully the original /etc folder as well as the original home folder cannot be written in, or copied. Permission problems, as could be expected. I have some backup, but not of quite a lot of photos I uploadd from my camera recently. Reinstalling from scratch is fo the moment not an option.
