The best way to avoid this problem is to understand how your BIOS is setup to boot.
Often newer machines will default to U(EFI) which is different than the traditional MBR/Legacy mode.
The problem is that this may not be apparent, often a BIOS Boot Menu will show a Legacy Boot Option and EFIOption without defining it.
A good example of this is if your USB is called "Kingston" you may see in your Boot Menu "Kingston" and also "Ubuntu"........
mytop is one of my favorite tools and it is fairly simple aside from a few caveats and issues that persist to this day.
To install it on Centos:
yum -y install centos
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
Timeout error occurred trying to stop MySQL........

This is obviously a bug in the r8169 kernel module and it seems to affect a lot of people. I upgraded to the latest kernel and hope this won't happen anymore, as it is a very serious error. This is especially serious for those who are running servers with this chipset, who can afford for the NIC to randomly go off-line for no apparent reason?

MySQL SELECT with multiple where conditionsI can get a match on rows for now apparent reason
[quote:09cf04e097]SELECT * FROM TABLE WHERE field = 'value' & value = 'field'
To make it work as expected use 'AND' instead of '&' they seem to have a completely different and unexpected effect.
[quote:09cf04e097]SELECT * FROM TABLE WHERE field = 'value' AND value = 'field'
This is pretty bad, ever since my phone has been unlocked the battery life is horrible. Many others have reported this issue on provider unlocked phones and even jail broken phones. We're talking issues as bad as losing 1% every 3 minutes which is what I seem to have observed as well.
For now I'm going to relock the phone, and hopefully a firmware update will address this issue. This is very annoying and it seems apparent this is also happening on 3G phones and that........
