It might be your router, but it might be your ISP: I have seen ISPs blocking all DNS (UDP 53) requests to other IPs than their DNSes - they do this to either monetize (make their DNS resolve ad-sites worng on purpose) or sometimes for legal reasons (DNS-based blocking of sites). And before you ask: Yes, they deliberately break DNS.

OK, thanks to several folks on this and other forums, I found the answer. The key is to know the file system type of the partition of interest. The lsblk command shows where the (name:broken) volume is mounted. The mount command with no parameters provides the required information about file system type, which is ext4 in this case. Note that several ...

I'm sorry to say that you can not over write or delete anything burned on the disk. You can only add to it. What I would personally do is put ubuntu on the computer download VirtualBox and configure it to run on the .iso file. But you might be asking how do I get the .iso to the computer. Just put the .iso on the disc but don't format it just move the .iso ...

There shouldn't be any difference between the output those two commands. It's hard to say exactly what the issue is, but one thing you can try is using a pager to manually scroll through the contents of a file: less package.json

Fixed this by moving /srv/www/wordpress to a subdirectory. The final URI is: /srv/www/html/blog with the Wordpress files in /srv/www/html/blog The server block then will have this instead: root /srv/www/html; # Redirects users from root to /blog location = / { return 301 http://example.com/blog; } location /blog { # index index.html index.htm ...

First, do this $ which gdm You should get a response like /usr/bin/gdm. If you get an empty line, then gdm is not installed. Re-install it. After confirming it is there, look in /etc/init.d $ ls /etc/init.d | grep gdm You should, once again, get a line confirming that it is there. Since you were apparently able to run sudo service gdm start, it ...

Technically: Yes, this is possible, but: 1 from Sean's links: "When running on Linux hosts, with a recent enough kernel (at least version 2.6.31) experimental host PCI devices passthrough is available".

see the following: Cannot setup PCI Passthrough for display adapter in VirtualBox and also: http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=42&t=112013 It seems it would be possible if you did it the other way round, with ubuntu as the host, also there is better support for vga passthrough in xen or kvm (other virtualisation software, google them) than ...

I found myself in the same situation and couldn't find pointers to recent 5.5.x versions on collectd's home page, nor on their wiki. Then I found collectd.org's repositories on GitHub. The README.md file for their CI repository contains instructions on how to use the packages on RHEL/CentOS and Debian/Ubuntu. To get the latest build of the "collectd-5.5" ...

logical line must not start with whitespace indicates that there are some extra whitespace in the config file. Check your /etc/postfix/main.cf for lines starting with whitespace. It could be a space in the beginning of the line or maybe line break in the wrong place.

You can mount a 3.5 drive in a 5.25 space if you use adapters. Example

@ssnobody answer solves the problem, but this isn't something you should do. Let /tmp and the initscripts do their work.

I solved it. sorry for bothering who read this. To start, the ESP was actually formatted as FAT32. I checked this out with sudo parted -l. I don't know exactly what the contents of BOOTIA32.EFI are but I was able to copy this file to the ESP. I did this from the live ubuntu which is booted from the 1st flash drive. From there I could use 'parted', 'mount' ...

One option would be to hook up the hard drive to another computer and pull the files off out of the tmp folder with that computer... Or, if you have a dual-boot system, boot up into the other system, as long as that system supports the disk fornatting of your Ubuntu partition, and then pull down the files.

You can use the -C flag to enable compression in scp transfer. This should be enough, although you can check man scp for more details on compression.

gzip will write to STDOUT, and scp can't handle it. try gzip -c aum.dmp | ssh -l oracle 192.168.0.191 'cat > /export/home/oracle/aum.dmp.gz' instead.

Ok, I was able to have my public interface as my default. I've done this by adding a gateway for that interface and removing the one from the private interface. I was not getting any gateway before on the public interface (at least, this is what I thought), but that has been fixed by removing the gateway from the private one, then setting public to dhcp. I ...

I'm assuming that by a non-USB device you mean PCI or PCIExpress device. VirtualBox has experimental support for PCI passthrough via an extension. However, support is only available on Linux hosts and only with certain hardware.

If you haven't already, install Guest Additions. You can download the version-specific one on the VirtualBox website. Which non-USB devices you want to mount?

When foreign documents use an unknown font you don't have installed, that font's name still gets displayed in LibreOffice Writer, but it automatically picks one of your installed fonts that it thinks is most similar to what you might want to see. So what you describe is the perfectly normal and intended behavior in the situation that you just don't have ...

I've created a Ubuntu 14.04 VM and found exactly your observations, though in my case I was using Ubuntu as host. It appeared that installing vmtools made no difference to the VM, unlike in Windows, where a new graphics driver was installed. It seems that the link you cite refers to much earlier versions of Ubuntu. I then found this link, which confirms ...

apt-get is Ubuntu's package manager. If you use a package manager from another distro, Bad Things May Happen™. I think you're mistaken in thinking that brew has more content than Ubuntu's repositories; you might need to read up on how to use it. If you're looking to add more content to the package manager, you may want to enable the Universe and Multiverse ...

This is not a Unix question, though I can see why you think it is. You do not have to tell the installed OS about it. How things work: Computer is switched on. Computer starts running program in boot ROM (often mistakenly called BIOS, on PCs). ROM based boot-loader, loads 2nd stage boot-loader from disk (or USB, or …). 2nd stage boot-loader, loads 3rd ...

Finally I found a solution, but without ffmpeg. This command does what I wanted: mencoder "mf://*.jpg" -mf fps=20:type=jpg -ovc lavc -lavcopts vcodec=mpeg4:mbd=2:trell:vbitrate=7000 -oac copy -o timelapse.avi Seems a little bit overcomplicated, but it does the job :)

So the problem is with symbolic links to the shared folder. It turns out that these are a security risk. See source. My solution is to delete the symbolic link and navigate to the mount point (/media/sf_MyUserName). This also allows me to sort in directories within the shared folder. This issue still exists on a fresh install of VirtualBox 5.0.0 on Win 7 ...

Instead of reading the Arch Wiki, rather check the ffmpeg documentation on the preset options. All should be explained there. Note that there are three different kinds of presets: .ffpreset files: You define option=value pairs in those files and for video settings you generally use them with -vpre. Depending on the encoder you select, ffmpeg will then ...

It looks like Ubuntu installs fine, if set as an iso on a USB stick and OS is set to Ubuntu in BIOS. The 14.10 version I tried hung randomly before completing install so after 5 tries I used 14.04.2 and that is working fine. I would still like to know how to get CentOS to recognize USB keyboard/mouse but I can live with Ubuntu.

You will need to add the bin directory to your PATH variable. If you type "echo $PATH" in your terminal, it will display a string of paths.

"add the binary to your path to make it available on the command line" In unix, the PATH is the environment variable which defines where the shell looks for executable programs to run when you enter them on the command line.

You need to add a "Grant" to that script any way... Greasemonkey 1.0 adds a special Metadata Block imperative: @grant. If a script does not specify any @grant values, Greasemonkey 1.0-1.9 will attempt to auto-detect the right settings. From GreaseMonkey 2.0, @grant none is assumed by default, if no other values are specified.[1] If a script specifies any ...
