Ubuntu Networking :: Mount Network Drive Automatically ONLY When Present?

Jun 10, 2011

I have a network drive connect to my lan with iomega's iconnect device. I am getting tired of mounting the drive manually each time I want to use it. I would like therefore to have it mounted automatically on boot by placing a line in fstab, but since the computer (a laptop) won't always be connected to my home lan, this might cause problems. Is there a way to list the drive in fstab so if the drive is not present it will just move on?

Networking :: Unable To Configure The Network Card Because The Kernel Device Is Not Present

Jan 28, 2010

I have installed Linux SuSE 10.3 on a PC (Lenovo Thinkstation A58). However, when I start the computer I get the following error message:

"No valid Host_ID or host-name found."

I then use YaST to set up the network. I get the following error message:

"Unable to configure the network card because the kernel device is not present."

The computer has Windows 7 installed and everything seems to work fine. The LED on the Ethernetplug is blinking when using Windows, but not when using Linux. I guess this means that there is no driver for the Ethernet card (Marvell Yukon 88E8057). I have not found any driver for the card and am considering buying a new one. Which PCI card works with SuSE Linux 10.3?

General :: Automate Computer To Power Off (and On Preferably) Under Certain Circumstances?

Dec 31, 2010

I've been using Windows Home Server as a Backup Appliance, Media Server and Share Server at home for some time. I decided it was costing me allot of juice so very early on added the "Lights Out" add-on to ensure it was only running as and when needed.

I'm now looking to switch to a Linux based server and I'm looking for a similar tool/set of tools for advanced power management.

Now the question;

Anyone got any all-in-one suggestions (i.e with client parts for both Windows and Linux and a server part for the Linux server), or can anyone simply verify that I'll need to set-up all the individual bits for this myself separately?

Ubuntu Networking :: One Computer Sees Network, The Other Computer Doesnt?

Nov 11, 2010

My wifes networked computer connected to the network just fine when it was Win XP. Now that Ive converted it to 10.04 (completely) it can see the network, but it just wont connect to it. I had no problem converting my computer to Ubuntu and it sees the network and accesses it great. Files, folders and hard drives are all shared. So, one computer connects great, the other does not.**I dont know what to do at this point.Here is the layout:My Comp (10.04) ---------......Main Network Comp (XP)Wife Comp (10.04) -------/The main network computer is XP as it has software on it we need that does not work in Wine. The main computer will have to stay XP. I cannot get my wifes computer to connect to the main system, although mine connects just fine. I dont know what the problem is. Her computer sees the network, but when trying to connect, it times out and says unable to connect.

Need to track which users are making changes to production files.

General :: How Installers Detect Hardwares

Dec 22, 2010

We know that each OS has it's own installer which takes care of installation process. The first step in any installation process is detecting the system platform architecture and hardwares such as CPU, RAM, VGA, Mouse, Keyboard, Hard Disk,... so it can act based on system configuration and do a clean install, now my question is: "How an installer can do this for the first time?".

I another word: "How lspci/hwinfo/prtconf/kudzu/... can gather those amount of information about hardwares?" (Yes! all of these commands will read some files for gathering those informations! but I need to know who and how created those files)

1- Note that, if we have a binary which compiled for a X86 architecture then it won't work on a Sparc system!

2- OpenSolaris can do that!

Ubuntu Networking :: Computer Crashes The Network

May 25, 2010

So whenever I turn on my EeePC with Ubuntu 10.04 on it, the network crashes after like 10 minutes to 45 minutes. Every time. Of course I have that horribly <snip> bug where the WPA and even WEP on my laptop are buggy because of 10.04, but it did the same when I was on 9.10 (but like 3-4 times a day instead of many times an hour).

Yeah, so when I connect to the network with my laptop, the network crashes. The wifi still works, I can detect the wireless network on all my computers (my Ubuntu one, Windows 7 and my girlfriend's Mac), but internet does not work. I then have to turn off router/modem, and it starts to work again. Then, a couple of minutes later, if the Ubuntu laptop is on, it stops again.

That's annoying because I can't really use my laptop on the internet because I'll have to restart everything soon. I've tried setting to WPA and to WEP and it happens with both. Same goes if I set my laptop to a manual IP address or an automatic one. I did some tests to be sure, and the network works without crashing for days if my laptop is closed, so the problem really is with Ubuntu, and as I said, it kind of always did that, but it was tolerable before.

Ubuntu Networking :: On Same Network Computer Can't Be Found

Dec 21, 2010

I just installed ubuntu server 10.10 and need to do one of two things: 1. I want to refer to the ubuntu server by a computer name from other computer on the network. This does not work. No other computer can find ubuntu server by its computer name except ubuntu itself. I can ping by the computer name on the computer itself: ping UbuntuComputer gets response but on another computer on the same network the computer cannot be found. Note if you use the IP address you can certainly find UbuntuComputer. Basically, from another computer on the same network I can ping the Ubuntu computer by IP but not by computer name, but if I go to the Ubuntu computer itself and ping it by name then it pings successfully. I am trying to ping the Ubuntu computer with a windows machine...that could be the case. 2. So being the case that I cannot get number one to work, I said ok, lets just set a static route then. So here is my primary network interface setup:


This works until some unknown time which it sets itself back to If I use the command /etc/init.d/networking restart then it will go back to So, on problem 1 why can't I see the ubuntu server by computer name on other computers on the network? Oh and here is the hosts file: UbuntuComputer localhost.localdomain localhost
::1 UbuntuComputer localhost6.localdomain6 localhost6 UbuntuComputer

On problem 2 why the heck does settings a static ip keep getting reset back to dynamic? This is a fresh install of ubuntu server 10.10 with maverick gui installed.

OpenSUSE Network :: Opennebula - No TTY Present / Askpass Program Not Specified

Mar 22, 2010

I have a problem with Opennebula that I have been trying t o solve for weeks, I have tried many options and have got nowhere. I have two HP ML115 servers configured to act as opennebula cluster nodes named opennebula01 and opennebula02. I have also installed the Front-end opennebula management deamon on node opennebula01. To use opennebula I have created a paswordless oneadmin user which seems to be ok because I can ssh to localhost and both nodes without a password. Using the onehost command I have created two hosts both tehse hosts are running correctly.
See Example1.

Periodically the opennebula monitoring system will fail, the problem I am having is that the logs keep showing the message:
"sudo: no tty present and no askpass program specified"
See example2
I have used the visudo command to change the sudoers Defaults visiblepw option but I just get a "root's password:root's password:sudo: pam_authenticate: Conversation error" error.
See Example 3 and Example 4.

oneadmin@opennebula01:/srv/cloud/images/ttylinux> onehost list
0 opennebula01 0 0 0 100 0 0 on
1 opennebula02 0 0 0 100 0 0 on

Example 3
# Comment out the preceding line and uncomment the following one if you need to use special input methods. This may allow users to compromise the root account if they are allowed to run commands without authentication.
#Defaults visiblepw

# In the default (unconfigured) configuration, sudo asks for the root password.
# This allows use of an ordinary user account for administration of a freshly installed system. When configuring sudo, delete the two following lines:
Defaults targetpw # ask for the password of the target user i.e. root
ALL ALL=(ALL) ALL # WARNING! Only use this together with 'Defaults targetpw'!
# Runas alias specification
# User privilege specification
root ALL=(ALL) ALL
# Uncomment to allow people in group wheel to run all commands
# %wheel ALL=(ALL) ALL
# Same thing without a password
# Samples
# %users ALL=/sbin/mount /cdrom,/sbin/umount /cdrom
# %users localhost=/sbin/shutdown -h now
# Added for opennebula to allow oneadmin to execute xen commands
%xen ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD: /usr/sbin/xm *
%xen ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD: /usr/sbin/xentop *

The netbook is running Windows XP SP3, with an Atheros AR9285 Wireless Network adapter(internet) and an Atheros AR8132 PCI-E Fast Ethernet Controller. The Ubuntu comp is running Ubuntu 9.04.

Ubuntu Networking :: Windows Computer Just Stole Wifi Network?

May 12, 2011

A friend came by, and we tried to log her on to our wifi network when she was having trouble accessing it with her Windows (Dist #) machine.he wifi network itself was set up with macs, and had standard, open settings as far as I could tell - no password, NETGEAR title of the network.The Windows computer prompted us for a Security Pin, which we gave it from the router, and then all of the computers already on the network got dropped, while the Windows machine got set up onto the wifi, renamed the network with its own username, and automatically set up a password.I'm currently on the network using LAN, but can't figure out how to set up the network through Ubuntu back to the original settings for the rest of the people that need to access the network.Specs:I'm running Ubuntu 11.0,The Windows machine is unknown right now. I'll repost if that will help.The wifi router is a Netgear Wireless N 150 WSR 1000, with the serial, mac, and security pin numbers.
