General :: Starting Completely From Scratch

Jun 22, 2011

Starting from what I would think is completely from scratch, maybe worse. A friend set up this computer on unix/linux when I expressed interest. Truthfully I don't have even the slightest clue where to start other than to offer my complete humility. If I could start with getting my dvd and cd functions to work that would be a good start.

Ubuntu Installation :: Starting From Scratch - Need To Create New Partition

Jan 13, 2010

I was a Jaunty user and then updated to Karmic. Wireless went from being sporadic in Karmic to non-existent after I tried the wrong fixes. I've changed so many settings and tried so many fixes that I don't know which way is up with the wireless. I'd like to start from scratch. If I install from CD, will it just write over my current ubuntu partition? Will the contents of home stay intact or will everything disappear? Do I have to create a new partition?

General :: Run A Program For A Specific Amount Of Time Starting At A Specific Time?

May 18, 2010

I want to record an internet radio station starting at 2:00am tomorrow morning. The specific program on the radio station lasts until 6:00am. The command I need to run to record the station is: Code:mplayer http://wjcu.jcu.edu:8001/listen.pls -ao pcm:file=indie_heat_of_the_night.wav -vc dummy -vo nullI'd use cron, but 1. I'm not sure how to and 2. it seems unnecessarily complicated for something that I only want to run once. If cron is the only/easiest solution, I guess I'll just have to resort to that, but I'd rather not.

Ubuntu Servers :: Services Not Starting When Booting

Sep 29, 2010

I have a server running 64bit lucid and while trying to get a script to run on boot to start Davmail I appear to have broken something. I have webmin installed but I have been trying to do the majority of things via the command line. I now have davmail starting at boot but a lot of other services don't start anymore, including apache, mysql and webmin. Fortunately SSH still works and I can start apache and webmin from the command line without any problems.

Server :: Hangs At Starting Domino Services During Booting Up?

Feb 11, 2010

I joined a company as an IT staff 2 months plus back. I now encounters a problem that the booting up hangs at the time when it is starting domino services. I have no clue where to look at and duno where to start checking. A little description of the server. : It's a lotus notes domino server for employees webmail service. -> Now it is down. it's an external dns server: recently high volumes of query cache denied surfaces. it's also our proxy server. The only way to get it up and running is to turn off domino service. The system is running still with high volumes of queries I last checked.

Althrough it can boot up now and DNS & proxy are running, I couldn't access the system anymore. It will hang when I attempt to log in from the command prompt. Below is an illustration:

iasaix login: root -> I attempt to log in using root user
password: xxxxxxxx -> I keyed in my password
-> The cursor comes down and just keeps blinking and nothing happens.

Remote access is not possible as it has sshd disabled by default. Our employees cannot access their webmail now, which is a major issue.

Ubuntu :: Starting Processes At Boot Time - Don't Start Privoxy?

Apr 27, 2010

I installed and configured privoxy - everything worked nicely when I run it manually by

/etc/init.d/privoxy start

After restarting the computer privoxy wasn't start automatically. I checked the links in /etc/rcX.d - are o.k. I installed sysv-rc-conf - shows that for runlevel 2 - 5 privoxy is running. I changed /etc/rc2.d/S20privoxy to /etc/rc2.d/S99privoxy - to start that process at the end. I installed Boot-Up Manager. Privoxy is marked for start automatically. I added in /etc/rc.local line: /etc/init.d/privoxy start

Privoxy still doesn't turn on at boot time and every time I must start it manually. Could you tell me how could I repair this ?

Ubuntu :: Put Frequently Used Programs In Ram For Faster Startup Time?

Jun 12, 2010

I was wondering if there is any tool or program that stores a copy of frequently used files eg. Binarys, program library's etc. in memory so when they are requested by the OS they load instantly. I'm asking because I have a system with plenty of ram but very slow hard disks. Having programs like opera and java/eclipse load from ram would greatly speed up their start time. Ideally they would be loaded into ram in the background after I log in. Of course all writes made to these files would have to be made to the files on disk for obvious reasons.I don't want the entire OS in ram because it will not fit, just frequently accessed files.

Ubuntu :: Taking A Long Time To Start Up Programs?

My computer is a relatively fast one. It has 4 gb of ram and an intel core duo processor. I didn't install that many programs. Does anyone know what might be the source of the problem and how to fix it?
