Ubuntu :: Keep Booting But Keep Installed Programs For Next Time Instead Of Starting From Scratch
Mar 31, 2011
I'm booting ubuntu from my android phone via USB and it works great, the thing is anything i install or do while using ubuntu isnt saved the next time i boot from the usb unless its saved in my phones storage. I want to be able to keep booting ubuntu the same way but keep the programs i install there for the next time instead ohttp://mac.bigresource.com/add/add.phpf starting from scratch everytime.
I have a home computer that I bought to try Linux. first I want to reformat the HD so it is completely empty, it has xp now, then start from scratch. But I have not been able to format the HD. I have used all the tricks I know.
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.
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?
I have this 11.0 64bit workstation here. It has been running flawlessly for the longest time. It is setup really nicely for this particular job.Anyways, I would to upgrade it to 11.2 64bit without starting from scratch. What would be the best, simplest way to do this?
Wondering if any know of a program that I can use to make an exact image of my fedora 13 operating system and transfer it to my new hard drive. I want to upgrade the hard drive and reinstall the exact system from the original drive to my new one, without starting from scratch. Just wondering if there's a program for Fedora 13 like Norton Ghost.
I started out with Kubuntu RC, then installed ubuntu-desktop and updated all the way to the current state of packages.Anyway, from the moment I installed the RC, from time to time the boot splash appears, the dots light up/turn off and then the booting hags. No key seems to work.I the do a hard reset and everything works just fine.As not to open another thread:- how can I see the Ubuntu splash screen? (currently I can see the Kubuntu one)- how can I turn the splash off and have it boot in text mode?
How would I make sure cron is running every time my server is turned on? I want to make cron jobs, but I need to know that it is running when the server boots. Also, I used a program at some point that was terminal based and it showed be what programs ran when the server booted up. It allowed me to check a box and select which programs I could run at boot. If someone could tell me this program,
Running Ubuntu Server 9.10.I have a couple of programs that I would like to start at boot, they will both run forever. I have created a cron job with @reboot and that will start a program, but if I have multiple programs in there it waits for the first to finish before starting the next.
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.
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.
I have a fedora 13 rc3. The problem is that boot the system stops here Starting libvirtd daemon Prior to that, stop at this point registering binary handler for windows application. I got up to enter the tty2 to remove Wine This time to stop here Starting libvirtd daemon
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.
Does anyone know of a good time keeping/recording program for Ubuntu that I can use to log hours spent on a project for billing purposes? I'm getting back to doing some web work to make some extra cash, and would love to have a program that does this.
Last night, I formatted my laptop(Asus w5f). And I installed win7 Home Premium. Then I installed Ubuntu 10.04. After installation, I restarted the computer. When I choose win7 at grub, comp. restarted itself. But When I choose Ubuntu, started properly. Now, grub is not starting win7. At ubuntu, I can see windows disk and files. But win7 doesn't start.
I installed and configured privoxy - everything worked nicely when I run it manually by
Quote: /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 ?
I have been installing programs, that I can't use. Kpackagekit assures me they are installed, as does the installer, Yet if I am to search for my installed program, it only finds the DEB file, and no installed program.
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.
I don't know if it is just me but it seems like Ubuntu takes a long time to start up programs. For example, it takes me 10 seconds to start up "Ubuntu software center". 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?
I had installed openSuSE 11.0 and then installed XEN using 'Install hypervisor and Tools' which is present in Computer -> YaST -> Virtualization.
After that I rebooted the machine in XEN mode[Dom 0]. There I installed a Virtual machine[Dom U] with OpenSuSE 11.0 Operating system using the option 'Create Virtual machine'which is present in Computer -> YaST -> Virtualization.
VM[Virtual Machine] got installed successfully and started running in TightVNC. I shutdown the VM and restarted it and it started running successfully.
After that I shutdown XEN[Dom 0] and restarted the machine in XEN mode again to run Virtual machine[Dom U]. But this time I got the below error when I selected the 'Run' option in installed VM.
i am using Ubuntu 9.10. I want to make a live CD with some programs installed i know i can do that by chroot ,etc. but i cannot re-download all packages again due to bandwidth limit. The packages i want to have on my live CD are already installed on my OS.(i usually clear the cache after installation to save disk space). Is there a way to transfer the programs to the live CD.
ps. all the programs are installed either by deb's or apt-get, none by source...
