There is a random bug that sometimes occurs with Vbox NAT mode DNS, although it has never happened in the past and Vbox was working fine until recently.
The symptom is that you can see it does get an IP+ DNS from the Vbox NAT DHCP.
Below we use resolvectl dns and verify the DNS server is set to 10.0.2.3 which is the DNS from Vbox NAT. We can ping it but it does not respond to any DNS requests when we use dig @10.0.2.3 realtechtalk.com........
If you are using the stock 5.4 kernel this is normal but I can confirm it is fixed in newer 5.8 kernels.
To fix it just install the 5.8 kernel and reboot:
sudo apt install linux-headers-5.8.0-64-generic linux-modules-extra-5.8.0-64-generic linux-image-5.8.0-64-generic........
If you are getting this error it is usually caused by having more than 5 keys in your ".ssh" directory. It is a bit of a bug and this is how it manifests itself.
You will find at this point that you are not given any chance to enter a password, or if you are using key based auth that the same thing happens. You'll also find that this is happening with ALLservers you try connecting to.
The solution is to move away key pairs from .ssh so that there ar........
A big problem over ssh and especially sshfs is that your connection will often timeout and disconnect after inactivity.
To fix this you can modify the server but it may not be practical or you may not have access. Why not send keep alives fom your end (client side)?
Just edit /etc/ssh/ssh_config (not to be confused with sshd_config as that is the server side):
Find the line that says "Host *" and change it like this:........
This is the reason that I don't like the new ADATA USB drives such as the UV128/64GB or 128GB drives and other ones that look to be the same style (the green sliding USB connector).
They just don't work well from new and never work properly at any point.

Are you tired of coming back to your computer only to find your SSH connections have been broken? Even worse are the ones that hang where it appears to be connected but it is really not.
The one option you have is an SSHclient side modification to send KeepAlive packets, sometimes this can also keep up your WiFi connection and stop it from disconnecting you as well.
To make the keep alive changes for your just yourself (not system wide)........
By default VMWare Workstation often doesn't work as we would like.
If you create a VM with a default NAT IP it won't work you will find the NIC is disconnected (even though on the VMWare side it says connected including at Power On).
How To Solve It
1.) Create New VMNet for NAT

Essentially a program I was running for mining did not terminate properly with Ctrl+C it is listed as defunct and cannot be killed, kernel is tainted and normal tricks to disable the port are impossible the dev and sys entries for the device cannot be browsed or interacted with in any form without a lockup of the request. The only solution is to reboot due to the kernel taint as far as I can find so far.

Here is a simple MP3 player and now there's a reason to understand why the supplied cable has some kind of capacitor and is very short. These devices can be VERY finicky and any voltage fluctuation or difference is enough to cause issues.
Take for example the error messages from Linux Mint:

This is mainly the case on Centos but applies to other distros and situations. If you are running programs in the background with the &, at least in Centos it is usually not honored and if you quit or are disconnected the backgrounded programs will be sent sighup and be shut down.
The simplest way around this instead of using & is to start any programs or commands with "nohup"

I wanted to use Astrachat because it seems to be the only app that has video, pic and file sharing for Jabber butI cannot even connect despite any other client working fine including Xabber and others.
astrachat "Oops.. We can't connect to the account that you provide above. Please recheck your account detail".
Unfortunately to make it worse there doesn't seem to be any error log or more details about the issue.
This is a real pain because I had to manually unplug ethernet cables for network testing or to use an alternate network or guarantee physical access to one network segment is cut off.
For some reason this happened after Ikilled dbus because it was confused and blocking packets thinking they were coming from the wrong interface since eth0 and eth1 both had the same subnet and gateway.
I eventually did a "service network-manager restart" but the option was........

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 pops up when connecting the phone and it doesn't seem to charge. The phone keeps showing a status message every few seconds "Connected as a media device".
It's ridiculous why this phone doesn't just default as a simple USB Mass storage device.

I've encountered this problem before and I believe it may affect other drivers (I could test but I don't have time). This was happening on my custom Linux system with the pcnet32 driver.
pcnet32: eth0: transmit timed out, status 97fb, resetting (and some other kernel module tracing in dmesg)
Basically it means the card is connected (it shows connected in full duplex etc.. and recognized if the cable is disconnected too) but no packets can be sent or received........

I took an educated guess because it kept happening at the same spot when loading the XP install. I thought it was the hard drive or motherboard.
But it turns out my heavily used but loved NEC 3500 DVD-RW drive was the culprit. After disconnecting it and swapping it for another much beloved Pioneer DVD-RW, everything has gone smoothly.
I never ran into this or many issues because I've hardly used this drive since moving it to another Desktop years ago. I actua........

ECS K7S5A Motherboard System Take Up To 2 Minutes To BootHi guys,
My motherboard is very strange. Sometimes it will take up to a few minutes to post. I have no idea it suddenly started doing this. I have tried everything and all I can figure is that it is somehow related to the USB ports possibly.
Why do I say this?
Because if I disconnect my scanner the problem occurs less frequently. I only have a printer hooked up to USB now and by........
I bought a Dynatron A46G for my AMD X4 620 AM3 Quad Core CPU. Just judging by touch, the stock OEM fan/heatsink combo kept things so cool, I could leave the 1U server on the floor and it barely felt warm to the touch, including the heatsink itself.
I thought the Dynatron A46G would be enough with passive cooling (it has no fan), but the same setup became burning hot on the underside of the server and also by touching the heatsink itself within minutes.
I thought that th........
