The DHCP server must have a static IP - this is because of a chicken-egg problem: During the DHCP process, the server communicates its IP address to the client If the server is also the client, this step can't succeed (as there is not yet an address to communicate).

Technically, by the standards this could happen, but no network admin in his right mind will count on it working. Most operating systems come up with an APIPA IP (169.254.1.0 to 169.254.254.255) when starting up. Therefore, the DHCP server might be able to run and possibly even answer requests. In theory, if on the server the DHCP client daemon stays ...

I want to understand what is going on Rufus developer here. What way too many people fail to understand, because Linux ISOs are applying this method, but this is essentially a MAJOR HACK CALLED 'ISOHYBRID', is that, in most cases, you cannot simply take an ISO image and copy it byte for byte to a USB drive, and expect that too boot. That is because the ...

I had same problem and I found a solution, actually it was quite easy. The problem was that a script was waiting on me to confirm for adding an UEFI entry on my computer but the terminal was not showing up and consuming all ressources (active waiting ?) Brief My solution was to run manually the command line, restart the computer and enroll the MOK key. ...

Modern Linux distributions use systemd, which comes with its own flavor of resolvconf as part of the resolvectl command. See manpage. A symlink called resolvconf can be created somewhere in $PATH. On Arch linux there's the systemd-resolvconf package that does this for you. On Debian (and Ubuntu?) you must do this manually. Using /usr/local to prevent ...

Had the same problem, found on this page: https://github.com/StreisandEffect/streisand/issues/1434 sudo apt install openresolv Resolved it for me.

You may have run into this error because the minimum version of TLS defaults to higher than that used by the Subversion server. Your choices are to upgrade your Subversion server's version of TLS if you own the server, or change your Subversion repository provider if you pay for one. If these two options are not available to you (for example, you are ...

To be clear, the user can su without a password, so that's setup somewhere, Somewhere else than sudoers, certainly. They are completely independent commands – su has its own logic for granting root rights and does not use 'sudo' or 'sudoers' for anything, whether it's passwordless or not. They just have similar names. The regular Linux 'su' mostly relies on ...

You need to be root (or use sudo): To shutdow the pc use: systemctl poweroff To restart the pc use: systemctl reboot

Looks like it should be in ~/.local/share/modem-manager-gui/devices/ID/sms.gdbm

There are probably a few things you need to do and this still may not work. Going from RIGHT. DNS Box: It needs to list your Debian 10 as a router. You probably need to list 192.168.1.1 as a default gateway there. Debian 10 Desktop: It needs a default gateway to be your ISP modem / router. This should be happening automatically as you claim to use DHCP ...

Jitsi's documentation appears to be (currently?) inaccurate. Today the Packages file downloaded from http://download.jitsi.org/stable/Packages in the end provides only theses packages (in multiple versions and architectures): $ grep-dctrl -F Package -s Package --regex '.*' < Packages | uniq Package: jibri Package: jicofo Package: jigasi Package: jitsi-...

If I interpret your issue correctly, this is the solution I found: The Issue When an application controls volume (e.g. sets it to max), it affects the system volume level, leaving applications' volume levels where they are, effectively "capping" them, requiring to readjust through e.g. pavucontrol every time. Initial settings: system |=======...

As @jean mentioned you need to downgrade the package to your system's needs: Check which version on ubuntu you're using Download the libc6 or related deb packages from this link. You are gonna install the .deb file you downloaded via terminal using this command: e.g. sudo dpkg -i --auto-deconfigure '/home/your-system-name/Downloads/libc6_2.30-...

I have the same problem if netcat gets a rst or fin packet, I think. You could simply call netcat again as soon as it closes using a bash loop. while true; do nc -lv <listeningport> ; done

If you're on a Mac and Wireshark can't capture the traffic, you can use the MacOS version of tcpdump with the special iptap interface option you can capture traffic e.g. if your VPN is using tun1 sudo tcpdump -i iptap,tun1

There's an issue with syslinux on debian from Stretch onwards: it automatically starts the graphical installer instead of starting the install menu entry. You can find more details about the issue and a fix here: https://www.virtualbox.org/ticket/18410 Basically the fix consists in using VirtualBox's --auxiliary-base-path to specify the location where ...

I know this is an old question, but someone will land here for sure. If you already added the 386 arch and installed steam, then just start it from the terminal and it will show you the missing packages that it needs to run. This is from my terminal log: $ steam # Failed to parse arguments: Option “--disable-factory” is no longer supported in this version ...

As 'root' -> Edit /root/.bashrc Add to the end of the file: alias reboot='systemctl reboot' alias poweroff='systemctl poweroff' Save the file and start session as root again.

Even I was getting the same error, While I was updating my kali linux using apt-get update This is what I did and it worked for me. grep -ri stable /etc (some of you might get stable, testing, or rolling in the error message. Just replace that keyword in the above command and fire it) I got a list of paths to files that used a stable keyword. after ...

Modem Manager GUI creates a database named sms.gdbm to store all the SMS details. GDBM is a simple light database, or perhaps better called "storage". It is just basically a way to store simple key-value pairs of any kind. It has no other structure as may be found in a traditional database, only keys and values. To view or export the data, you could use ...

The safest way to remove unused kernel packages is to use the utility purge-old-kernels, created by one of the developers of Ubuntu, Dustin Kirkland, available for desktop and server systems, Ubuntu and therefore Linux Mint. To install and use the package do: sudo apt-get install -y bikeshed byobu sudo purge-old-kernels If the utility fails to detect ...

I changed line with screen to: screen -d -m -L -Logfile ServerLog/`date '+%Y-%m-%d_%H:%M:%S'.txt` -S "Game Server" bash /home/mudzy/AutomaticLinuxReboot/RunServer.sh And now its works

This was being caused by USBIP, the last line in the dmesg output revealed that the device was automatically being grabbed by a script a few seconds after it was connected. Disabling this script (and then uninstalling USBIP) fixed the issue.

You could create a symlink. ln -s apps2 /var/bbb/my-apps1 Linux also allows the same filesystem to be mounted at multiple locations. If they all need to have the same filesystem root mounted, it should be fine to just include the same /dev/xvdf1 device multiple times in fstab. On the other hand, if some locations need a subdirectory to be mounted instead, ...

NOTE: I have NO access to wsl Plausible cause: wsl fails to handle arguments in a sane manner. Try this: First launch wsl bash --login, then at the bash prompt: echo $PATH > $HOME/out.file cat $HOME/out-file Note: /home - is the folder that contains folders for user's homes. So for any logged in $user there is a folder named /home/$user/ wsl ls ...

I feel the other answers overlook a couple of things. Can a computer running a DHCP server assign its own IP address A DHCP server will give out IPs. Before continuing - a DHCP server is a program running on a system that may also be running other things (it's not equivalent to a device). A DHCP server follows a process and expects things at certain ...

dd isn't the right tool to create a windows bootable USB. The easy way is to use woeusb. Install: sudo apt-get install devscripts equivs gdebi-core cd WoeUSB ./setup-development-environment.bash mk-build-deps sudo gdebi woeusb-build-deps_3.3.1_all.deb dpkg-buildpackage -uc -b sudo gdebi ../woeusb_3.3.1_amd64.deb Now, the package version is 3.3.1 , in case ...

It's best to do the following: Add the non-free section of the Debian repository to the list of package sources to APT. See this. Run # apt update Now you have the nvidia-driver package available—it depends on a number of other packages which provide nVidia-produced "binary blob" proprietary driver. The upside of using it over whatever you have ...
