  • Linux Mint Black Screen after boot no graphics solution


    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........

    error: Failed to create domain from /home/kvm/kvm101/kvm101.xml error: cannot open file '/dev//dev/kvmcontainer/kvm101_img': No such file or directory This is caused by what we consider a quark in SolusVM that I helped a client with.

  • VBox/Virtualbox solution to NS_ERROR_CALL_FAILED error


    VBox/Virtualbox solution to NS_ERROR_CALL_FAILED error This is likely because you have 2D/3D acceleration enabled and your card doesn't support it. Eg. you switched video card drivers or video cards that did support it. The funny thing is that you CANNOT disable those options as they are "greyed" out in the VBox client GUI. The config file has to be manually changed and fixed with these options "accelerate3D="false" accelera........
  • Dell Perci 6/i Firmware Upgrade Guide Tutorial


      One thing to remember is that you need MegaCli to do the flashing. You also need the correct file, I tried at least 2 different Perc 6 firmwares from Dell that kept getting rejected as corrupt by MegaCli (they were really the wrong version).  I have an external PCI-E Dell 6 Perc/I but I chose images from the 'Integrated" on motherboard version as it was all I could find.  They are different, and below is my first time finding success.........
  • Dell Perc 6/i cannot downgrade


    I flashed an LSI Logic firmware to it and it broke the BIOS (cannot do Ctrl+R) for booting purposes but allows other functionality to work normally.

  • Centos how to upgrade from PHP 5.2 to 5.3 without downtime


    This may sound silly but there will be conflicts/issues with the default Centos repository so you have to use a third party like remi (I prefer not to do this but it's the only option unless you migrate your sites/data to another server or can stand some downtime-not an option IMHO on a production server). You may need to upgrade to PHP 5.3 to run Joomla or many other reasons. Your host needs to use PHP 5.2.4 or higher to run this version of Jo........
  • Ubuntu 10 Nvidia Drivers Not Updated After Kernel Update Solution/How-To Manually Rebuild nvidia kernel modules for Ubuntu


    I dread updating the kernel and rebooting to find the Ubuntu graphics aren't working and you have to manually intervene.   This is usually because Ubuntu for whatever reason didn't update the drivers you need (eg. the manually compiled Nvidia Kernel driver that MUST be recompiled for each and every kernel update unfortunately). The most common reason may be that "linux-source" hasn't been installed automatically on my system.  I tried to manually reinstall the........

  • yum in Centos 5/Xen halts and exits suddenly


    yum exits in the middle The problem is this VPS seems to be an OpenVZ template from HyperVM.  The only way to make it work was to disable i386 packages since this was an x64 kernel.  That shouldn't be necessary but it was the only way to make yum stop quitting after the first package or two.  I couldn't find any issue by checking the logs either. echo y|yum install vim-minimal telnet expect jwhois net-tools slocate iptables elinks gawk L........

  • iPhone Enable Tethering Manually Update ipcc Carrier Settings/Update via SSH


    Everyone says there is a "manual" way of doing it and then they tell you to use iTunes, but if you're like me, you're travelling on business in a foreign country and your laptop does not have iTunes and you don't have a way of getting it and/or don't want it. For this example I'm using the provider "du" in Dubai, UAE (United Arab Emirates) but this method works for virtually all providers.  The requirements in this case to truly "manually update........
