This is very frustrating but the fix is usually easy once you read this blog. It's very frustrating when you find that your Linux / Ubuntu laptop's wifi will NEVER work unless it is plugged into the power. The wifi menu may say "Wifi disabled by hardware switch". You may find that your laptop has no switch or has a function wifi button on the keyboard but this does not work or have any effect.
The cause is usual a "wmi" kernel module and simply doing an........
ValueError: new value non-existent xfs filesystem is not valid as a default fs type
Pane is dead
From what Iread this is misleading and has to do with the fact that the initrd and kernel are mismatched.
This is a hard situation because for some older hardware Iam using the Centos Plus kernel which has modules that Irequire for an older server/NIC. This seems to have cropped up in the past few months and there is no simple fix........
I've had this issue since Ubuntu 9 and now even on Linux Mint 17 no matter what latest version of the Nvidia proprietary driver that I use. It just becomes slower and slower and only gets better after rebooting or restarting Xorg.
Someone here has it as well
It's very fru........
At first I thought it's just not possible but there is actually an option that can be enabled to make symlinks work with Samba.
Then I put this under the [global] section
Note: It's "wide links" and not "wide symlinks" (some other sites have incorrect info which was a frustrating waste of time :))
Add this to your smb.conf
follow symlinks = yes
wide links = yes
I installed Ubuntu 11.04 for testing purposes but I couldn't even download SSH server:
sudo sed -i -e 's/us.archive.ubuntu.com/old-releases.ubuntu.com/g' /etc/apt/sources.list
After running the above make sure you do a "apt-get update"
Note with the above that Ihave the search string of "us.archive.ubuntu.com" change it to whatever is in your sources.list
The above does not fix all repositories either, I haven't had a chance t........
I really am a Linux fan but my comments here may not show it. Although I'm quite familiar with Linux CLI to administer servers, I find Linux GUI OS's like Ubuntu at times very clunky.
This is partially because there's no such thing as a "self-made" Linux from scratch where the UIwas designed by a single team. Linux is made up of several different projects that are generally completely separate and this lack of integratiion is a key issue that makes things f........
I was getting frustrated with trying to write a simple URL like this:
I used the htaccess code like this:
Rewriterule ^example-withdash$ / [R=301]
I also tried escaping the dash which I thought should have treated it as a literal but that didn't work either:
Rewriterule ^example-withdash$ / [R=301]
But it wouldn't work, apparently the "-" dash means don't substitute,........
This is a "pro" feature I guess so you don't have to see the ugly GRUB screen but if you're having boot problems or trying to update/customize your system it can be frustrating.You have to do some Googling to find out that you have to hold shift to see the GRUB2 menu.
You have to hold shift before GRUB2 loads and you will see it........
I am a huge fan of Linux and the idea of OpenSource but I've said it many times, there are still hurdles in today in 2010 for Linux as a Desktop. Linux is still intended for servers at its very core. This can be changed succesfully though, as Apple has shown us with Mac OS X based on FreeBSD.
Half of the issue is lack of driver support and the other half is the Linux Kernel and Window Manages, KDE and GNome still both don't cut it (but they're getting closer).
Ihave no idea how to get the loopback device working in OpenVZ, but what's more frustrating is that I purchased a CPanel license for my VPS and clearly it is not "VPS Optimized". Although everything does seem to work at this point despite that error.
The suggestions here: http://forum.openvz.org/index.php?t=msg&goto=1339 don't seem to work at all. This is an OpenVZ issue, but also a CPanel isue, why on earth would loopback support be expected in a VPS a........
This is unfortunate and frustrating as many sites use it, a lot of people are frustrated that TinyMCE does not work on the iPhone Safari browser.
Apparently the developer of TinyMCE's answer is "talk to Apple about it"
It's really frustrating although, I wonder if any other mobile phones are able to use TinyMCE or not, whatever the case is it would be nice to find a solution to use TinyMCE on the........
