This problem has been around forever, Linux seems to think it is fine to use the r8169 driver for an r8168 NIC but this often causes problems including the link not working at all.
In my case ethttool shows the link up and detected but it simply does not work especially on a laptop that has been resumed from suspension. Sometimes it takes several minutes for it to work or to unplug and replug the ethernet.
Here is the solution:
This is usually because of STP causing a delay in the negotiation.
Edit your ifcfg script eg:
Add a LINKDELAY of 30 seconds or whatever works for you:
After that you should have an IP during bootup.........
This happened in a PHPscript with heredoc but it could really happen anywhere. The issue was whitespace in code like this:
$variable = ........
This is most likely to happen on a normal GUI system like Ubuntu or Linux Mint. If you or the user is meant to have sudo / root privileges it is as simple as editing the following files:
Now assume your username is "iamtheuser"
Find the above lines and add a comma and "ia........
This happens because Dovecot limits the maximum IMAPconnections per IPto just 10. This may be fine for a single client side IPbut if an entire office or multiple users are behind one IPor a single heavy user is active then you will get bizarre errors in your e-mail clients such as "Password Incorrect" or similar in Thunderbird. It won't be obvious on the client side as to what the problem is and they will probably just think the server is misconfi........
This is not the normal "black screen"issue and I was shocked to eventually find out why. The normal advice of reconfiguring Xorg didn't work. Even booting into "Recovery Mode" did not help.
Here is the short end of the stick that fixed it:
sudo apt-get install mdm mate-desktop-environment
Yes you got it right, mdm and the mate-desktop-environment / gnome were somehow uninstalled. This must be whe........
This usually happens when you are using something like an INT and try to insert a larger valuethan the maximum which is larger than "2147483647"
On a practical term I have seen this and been guilty of this error when using scripts like PHPand generating large random numbers:
$hash = mt_rand(5,9999999999999);
Obviously that many 9's are more digits than the maximum of an INT resulting in that error. Change your code accord........
This happened on Centos for no apparent reason with no obvious issue in the logs. Data could be read fine but not written (possibly due to some corruption or out of memory issue in the OpenVZ container is the best guess).
All mysql update and insert queries failed freezing without any error log on any database and table.
Tried to restart:
service mysqld restart

This error is commonly due to Java security or TLS settings but there is a second issue with forwarded ports that also causes it.
1. Java Security/TLS Settings issue:

This actually only happened after an e-mail server ran out of space due to run away log files. Normal Desktop clients were not affected. It appeared to be a bug in K9 mail but even reinstalling/wiping all settings did not fix it (read e-mails would still not reappear).
This is moreso a bug in Dovecot where it probably messes up the index files.
How do you fix this in Dovecot/your e-mail server?
You need to delete the do........
This happened while updating Linux Mint/Debian/Ubuntu on a remote SMB/Samba share.
After waiting for updates to complete things will work normally but it really is strange that the service actually stops working or is disabled for so long during the update. It is likely the update process stops the serivce and only restarts after the update is complete.........
This is a common mistake but many people do not realize this function comes from mysql itself, so therefore you need an active mysql connection open.
Usually the string will be empty and null when you call it from outside of the database connection portion of your code.
eg. an example of the wrong way and creating a null/empty string
$var = mysql_real_escape_string($myself)
// returns n........
This can happen because port 80 is not open, or your license has expired and/or your IP is out of date and also if the license server itself from cPanel is having issues.
In most cases as long as you have a valid license the following command will solve it:
Updating cPanel license...Done. Update succeeded.
Building global cache for cpanel...Done
This is a simple fix but not a simple problem and it still doesn't make sense to me.
But in a nutshell if your target proxy server works fast when accessing directly over SSL then this may be your issue.
It seems SSL does not play nicely when the target proxy destination/host has a riduculously long key (such as 8192 bits long). Now this is normally not a problem, in fact the target server could be accessed with hardly any delay directly despite such a long key.........
This is very annoying and also hard for web developers who want to see how things look on Android. You may be fooled into thinking you have an unclosed bracket or incompatible code but this is the "text inflation feature" which I feel should be disabled by default. It works so inconsitently that one block of text will appear small while the other will be huge and is quite annoying.
The solution is simple
Settings ->Display and &q........
This is still a weird quirk about phpBB, you can allow everyone+guests to see a forum.
What also controls the first layer is this weird built-in "Anonymous" account. You have to actually give that account specific rights to view all the forums or otherwise the above will happen and you'll wonder why your group permissions don't seem to apply.........
This problem seemed to happen recently but was likely causing issues before where the phone(s) do not ring.
Now there are a few reasons why this can happen especially if your adapter has DND mode enabled (disable it).
However that wasn't my issue and Ionly figured it out the other day when by fluke if you're on the phone (making a call) then calls will come in.
That's when Ifigured out the solution:
This likely app........
This seems to mainly affect new installs of Windows and especially on XP randomly.
There are whole pages dedicated to the subject but none of them have a simple proper solution.
They and Microsoft say to use "Microsoft Fix It", the only problem is it requires .NET and many new installs of Windows don't have it by default.
The simple solution you asked for
Just reboot Windows and that is how Ifixed it.........
This can happen when you install RPMForge or other repos with the wrong architecture and here's how you fix it (simply uninstalling won't usually fix it):
yum clean all
yum -y install openvpn
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, presto
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
* base: mirror.its.sfu.ca
* extras: centos.mirror.nexicom.net
* rpmforge: mirror.cpsc.ucalgary.ca
This happens because of a permissions or ownership issue.
Generally /var/lib/mysql should be all owned by mysql.mysql (check that).
To fix it use chown -R mysql.mysql /var/lib/mysql
Also make sure the files are at least readable and writable by mysql (eg. 700).........
This example involves an Aterisk message log of about 26GB, but with any server it usually does not get deleted until the server is stopped/restarted:
asterisk 13729 root 6w REG 0,41 27277943090 59097971 (deleted) /var/log/asterisk/messages
So if you've deleted a bunch of large logs, make sure you restart the server for them to regain your space.
This is usually solved by two variables alone:
Now you should be able to have unlimited amounts of custom menus in Wordpress.........
This is important if you need public access to internal IPs such as at your office and don't want to use a VPN just to SSHinto different servers:
Below forwards the port "10001" to the IP184.108.40.206 on port 22 (of course adjust it to your needs).
iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -p tcp --dport 10001 -j DNAT --to-destination 220.127.116.11:22
Remember to enable MASQUERADE on your NAT IPs or they won't be able to talk to the outside world (........
This seems to be common for some reason when trying to run Windows 7 under KVM and 7 has always had strange issues with KVM. What happens for me is after the install it simply won't boot, it stays on the POST screen and does nothing.
For some reason it appears the boot sector either doesn't get installed or gets corrupted with KVM.
The solution is to boot the install disc for Windows 7 and reinstall the windows MBR into the boot sector:
1. Boot t........
This was very annoying but has a simple fix, I had an echo and the voice quality was absolutely horrible (it sounded like tin cans under water) if that helps describe it. It was extremely distorted.
The simple Skype sound quality solution
Go to "Options" -> "Sound Devices"
Disable the "Allow Skype to automatically set my mixer levels"
After doing this the sound qua........
This is what I call a ridiculous bug in compiz that causes it.
The solution/To fix it just install "compizconfig-settings-manager"
Open it up and Navigate to General Options -> Display Settings
Set the "Refresh Rate" to the current refresh rate of your monitor.
For ATI cards with slow window dragging/response supposedly disabling "Sync to VBlank" fixes that but otherwise leave it as is.........

This may not apply to everyone but here is what happened to me.
One day my IP connectivity for one container went dead, I could ping the hostnode from it and the hostnode could ping it but there was no external routing. I restarted the network service but it didn't help.
I checked the routing table inside the VPS and the host and everything looked normal. Iadded another different IPon the same subnet to the container and it worked. Right away I st........
This has stumped me a few times because I keep forgetting that Centos 5.5 comes with a default iptables configuration that ends up blocking DRBD traffic,I tried all the normal things and couldn't understand why I couldn't make my normal DRBD config work. So if you have WFConnection problems and have tried the normal "mailing list" fixes, check your firewall status first!

This happens on some systems due to a video issue with Intel Videocards, after you see the kernel load you may see almost immediately that you get a black screen.
The following kernel parameters usually solve it:
nomodeset i915.modeset=0 xforcevesa
some people just use "nomodeset" and others use "i915.modeset=0". I think nomodeset may also do the same for each video driver so it may imply i915.modeset=0 anyway but I am not sure.........
This error is annoying, in a Virtuozzo KB entry about this ip tables nat problem they say the kernel needs to be ugpraded:
The node runs 2.6.18-x kernel older than 2.6.18-028stab053.10.
