Ubuntu :: Can't Keep Putting Files In CD/DVDs

Oct 8, 2010

Whenever I put a few files into a blank CD or DVD, wether it's pictures, music, documents, whatever, and then I use it another day and try to put a few more files into it, Ubuntu won't let me. I used to be able to continue adding files to my CDs in XP, so I'm not sure if there's any way to do that with Ubuntu? It just shows the DVD as (for example) 1.4 GB used, 0 GB free.

Fedora :: Generate Report Other Than Going Through All The Nagios Configuration Files And Putting It Together Manually?

Feb 23, 2010

I have an existing Nagios installation from before I started working here. It seems to be working well but my boss has just asked for a report of what servers and the associated processes/functions are being monitored. Is there any way to generate this report other than going through all the Nagios configuration files and putting it together manually?

Debian Installation :: Why So Many DVDs (ISO Files)

Mar 19, 2011

I'm looking at [URL] and I see 8 DVD's each approx 4GB. Why is there one DVD for ubuntu and 8 DVDs for debian? What is on all those DVDs? Is there any way to copy those iso files to a thumb drive instead of a DVD and install from the thumb drive? I have a couple of 32GB micro SD in the mail soon.

Hardware :: Can't Get Movies (dvds Or Files) To Play Properly?

Feb 3, 2010

I just built a new Linux box & cannot get Movies (dvds or files) to play properly.

Xine playback is jittery but audio stays in sync with video.
Xine complains about "Too Many Dropped Frames"
Mplayer playback is ok but audio & video are way out of sync.
Mplayer says my system is "Too Slow"

I think it might be a RADEON driver issue because my Mandriva-2009.1 uses X.org version: 1.6.1 & maybe those drivers (radeon_drv.so) don't fully support the ATI Radeon HD 4200 GPU. I know there is a prorietory driver (fglrx) but before trying it I'd like to here what you think. Here is some relevant info about my computer:

Asus M4A785T-M
CPU AMD Athlon II (X2) Soscket AM3
Chipset AMD 785G/SB710
Graphics ATI Radeon HD 4200 GPU (integrated)


Sorry this post is so long. I know it isn't easy to sift thru a long post because that is exactly what I've been doing this past week while try ing to get a solution.

Software :: Backup Large Sets Of Files To Multiple CD's / DVDs

Jun 5, 2010

I have a large collection of pictures (12GB and growing) - way too big to fit on one CD or DVD.I want to back them up to CDs or DVD's in standard (I think it's iso 9660) format that Windows can read.I know how to do this the hard way - by manually selecting a pile of pictures that will fit on one disc, burning it and then going on to the next pile.There must be a way to tell k3b or a similar program to do this for me - to automatically make a backup of the whole thing using as many discs as necessary.Can anyone tell me how to do this?

I don't want to use tar or another archive/compression scheme because I want the pictures accessible to someone with minimal technical expertise who doesn't even know how to spell "Linux".

Ubuntu :: Before Putting Windows On?

Apr 26, 2011

I need to dual-boot for exactly 4 days. I have set up my Lucid, and loving it, and I am just afraid that I will not be able to recover the bootloader - I have messed this up many times before.

What are the things I need to know, in order to get it back? If there are any problems (error 17 or 15, by memory), what kind of things can I double-check now, in order to be able to fix anything?

Ubuntu Servers :: Putting The CD Image On The HDD?

Apr 27, 2010

Here's a trick I'd like to be able to do. You know how on Windows systems, you can copy the contents of the install disk to a folder, then point the system at it and when it would normally ask you to insert your Windows CD, it just reads that folder?

That's pretty much what I want to do. I want to put the contents of the Ubuntu CD-ROM on the HDD such that if I ever need to refer to the CD, it thinks it's already inserted and just reads from there.

This may sound like an odd request, but I'm asking because my Linux server is an old cheapo computer that doesn't have an internal CD-ROM drive. I have one that I can hook up, but it's a pain in the butt to open the case, set the jumpers, attach the drive, reboot, etc.

This would be a lot simpler for me. This way, if I ever need to access something that was on the Ubuntu Server CD-ROM, I want to be able to just get it from right on the hard disk. (I've got the drive space, after all.)

Ubuntu :: Hdparm Not Putting HDD's To Sleep?

Dec 12, 2010

Im wanting to put HDD's to sleep using hdparm after 20min of activity (a 4x disk raid5 array and two single disks). I have edited /etc/hdparm.conf, adding the following lines at the end of the file:


/dev/disk/by-id/scsi-SATA_ST32000542AS_5XW0T1R6 {
spindown_time = 240



sudo hdparm -y /dev/disk/by-id/scsi-SATA_SAMSUNG_HD501LJS0MUJDWQ411622

The HDD's will sleep with out issue. Ive looked around my log files and cant seem to find anything to do with hdparm, or the HDD's sleeping. Have I make a mistake in the .conf file? Is there some place hdparm logs, or if I can activate some sort of verbose mode? Or does hdparm need to be activated on boot?

EDIT: I'm using ubuntu 10.04.1 x64 last updated today.

Ubuntu / Apple :: Putting JUST Xubuntu On IMac G3's

Mar 17, 2011

I have eight iMac G3's that work. I've never had a mac before, and I'm not interested in anything the mac OS has to offer. I want to totally delete it, and put JUST xubuntu on these computers. I know nothing about Mac, except I got these, and they have pretty colored housings. I've tried using the 'c' and 'apple+c' commands to get this to boot from the xubuntu cd, but it doesn't have any effect. The thing just continues to load OS9.

I'm seeing from all these threads that everyone is pretty much dual booting, or multi-partitioning the hdd. I do NOT want to do this. Is it possible to format the drive completely, so that it is utterly blank, and then install xubuntu? Am I going to have to get new hdd's for them? They all work just fine, no problems except the software is so old that you can't do anything with it but use post it notes.

General :: Prevent Ubuntu From Putting Monitor To Sleep?

Jun 23, 2010

Ubuntu 10.04

Under Preferences > Power Management I have changed the settings to never put the computer to sleep and never to put the display to sleep.

My display still goes to sleep and I am prompted for my password when I leave the computer unattended.

I would like to be able to hit the "Lock Screen" app I added to the top panel to lock my screen, but otherwise I would like it to just stay on.

Ubuntu :: Putting The Titlebar In The Panel On DESKTOP Edition?

Nov 14, 2010

I just upgraded to 10.10, had a look at Netbook Edition, and while I like some aspects of it, still prefer the way I've set things up using the standard Gnome Desktop Edition. Thing is, I DO love the idea of putting the titlebar information into the top panel. I like that a lot. Is there any way of doing that in the Desktop edition?

Ubuntu Installation :: Drives From BIOS And Tried Putting GRUB On Both SSD And 1TB HDD

Mar 4, 2011

I'm having some issues getting Ubuntu to boot. I've installed it a bunch of times before, but dual booting and not. Right now though, I'm having issues installing it along with Windows 7, on separate hard drives. Here's my current configuration:

60GB SSD with windows 7
500GB HDD, NTFS, windows 7 data

I bought a 1TB HDD that I want Ubuntu on, but I only want Ubuntu to use 100 GB. I want the other 900GB for Windows 7. So, I put in the Ubuntu CD, chose to edit the partitions manually in the 1TB HDD, created a 100GB ext4 primary partition for linux and a 2GB swap partition, leaving the other 900GB unallocated. Ubuntu seemed to install fine, said it succeeded, and asked me to reboot. When I did, however, my computer boots straight into Windows (no GRUB screen at all). I've tried changing the boot priority to all three of my installed drives from BIOS and tried putting GRUB on both my SSD and 1TB HDD.

OpenSUSE Install :: Dusting Off Old Pc's And Putting Them To Use Again

Feb 19, 2011

I have recently converted to Linux after taking a system architecture course which exposed me to OpenSuse. I have my main desktop up and running with OpenSuse and now I'm determined to dust off my old pc's at home and get them up and running again. I might need some guidance or tips along the way so thats why I'm here.I have four old pc's running on Windows Home XP with 512mb or less of ram. I am planning on upgrading them to at least 1 or 2gb of ram to get as much as I can out of OpenSuse. Should I install the ram before I before or after switching them all to OpenSuse? What network adapter do you guys recommend?

General :: Putting Grub1 Into MBR Without Having It Installed

Jan 21, 2011

I am currently trying to install Sabayon linux, and it expects to use Grub1 for booting from usb (what am I trying to do). So I copied grub files into boot section, but now I need to "root and setup" it - and that's what I can't do, because I don't use Grub1 normally, since I am on Ubuntu which uses Grub2.

(I decided to use Grub1 instead of Grub2 because Sabayon could have some special params, and I am not that much experienced to copy them in new format to grub2 configuration file). So my question is - is there a way to copy grub1 to MBR without having it installed? (using some utility or something like that).

Ubuntu :: Firefox Won't Work After Putting Home Folder On New Partition?

Jan 9, 2010

I have just finished transferring my home folder to a new partition. I did so by carefully following instructions on this link [URL] I had firefox open and was copying instructions one by one into an open terminal window.

When I tried to reboot ubuntu I first had a problem with ICEauthority which I think is now fixed and ubuntu then started as normal but when I tried to run Firefox I got a message saying that it was already open.

As I had Firefox open when I was copying files to the new partition I assume that some setting was copied saying that Firefox was open?

Is it possible to simply adjust this setting or do I have to undo the transfer and repeat the process with firefox closed.

I have not deleted my copy of the old home folder yet.

Debian Hardware :: No Eth In Ifconfig After Putting Old Jessie

Jan 24, 2016

I'm using Debian Jessie (with YunoHost v2). Recently the PC on which I had installed it stopped working (power supply dead) so I put the hard disk in another PC. The system seems to start up correctly but I cannot see the ethernet and wlan interfaces in ifconfig (only lo).

The old PC was an Asus EeePC 1001 HA. The new one is an Acer 5920G. I ran Linux (Mandriva) on it in the past with no difficulty.

lspci shows this:

Code: Select all06:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 3945ABG [Golan] Network Connection (rev 02)
08:00.0 Ethernet controller: Broadcom Corporation NetLink BCM5787M Gigabit Ethernet PCI Express (rev 02)

I read on the Web that BCM5787M uses for driver tg3 and this appears in lsmod:

Code: Select alltg3                   154678  0
ptp                    17462  1 tg3
pps_core               17080  1 ptp
libphy                 27468  1 tg3
