comment CentOS 6.1 + Oracle Express 11g
Are you positive /etc/init.d/oracle-xe is supposed to start a web server on port 8080?

comment CentOS 6.1 + Oracle Express 11g
I'm sorry -- none of this makes any sense. Please copy and paste the commands you actually executed, the error messages you actually get, and what you expected to happen. If you're trying to connect to localhost make sure you have a web server of some sort listening on port 8080: netstat -anp for help there.

comment Ubuntu. I have disabled ssh login with root on my server, but how to copy files from local to server now?
Why is the apache tag here? You never mention Apache in the question. Why doesn't scp foo bar baz xyzuser@ubuntu_host:/foo/bar work?

comment Ubuntu on VMWare Player: My Ruby is missing
Were any changes that you made to the system retained? Or were they all thrown away? Does the properties for your virtual machine (or block device?) allow writing to the virtual machine or block device? Do you have permissions to modify the files that hold all the virtual machine data?

comment Install gentoo on macbook pro
This question would be more appropriate for Super User, but it is lacking a huge amount of detail that they would require. Which gentoo live dvd? A recent version? One known to work with Apple's EFI boot process? Or are you using BootCamp? What errors specifically are you getting?

comment How do I enable 'highlight to copy' feature on CentOS6
Strictly speaking, highlighting doesn't copy to the clipboard but instead populates a selection buffer.

You will probably also need to include the output of ip addr show and ip route show. If ping(1) doesn't work, how about non-ICMP packet types? UDP or TCP?

The TLDP Transparent Proxying with Squid HOWTO is a little old, but should be useful.

comment How do I block url in Ubuntu internet shared connection?
Easiest is probably to use a proxy like Squid and force all web traffic through your proxy.
