If you get this error in your logs:
add bridge failed: Package not installed
This error normally means one of two things.
1.) Is your brctl (bridge-utils) installed?
On Mint/Debian check for "brctl". If it's not there do
sudo apt install bridge-utils uml-utilities
2.) Is your bridge.ko (bridge kernel module loaded?).
On some installs I have seen that you cannot modpro........
The easiest way for the current running kernel is:
update-initramfs -u -k `uname -r`
You could change -k to a specific kernel name if for some reason the current is not running (eg. if you are chrooted or in recovery mode).
If you want to update all kernels then use "-k all"
update-initramfs -k all -u

Debian based OS's have a similar issue as the behavior in RHEL/CentOS dhclient, which is that if you have an interface that relies on DHCP, if the first attempt fails, it will quit and stop. This is a problem especially if you are using your Linux as a router or something else mission critical, but where the internet for some reason may have been down or the DHCP server it gets a lease from broken.
The expected behavior you would hope is that when things are back online that the........
Bonding is an excellent way to get both increased redundancy and throughput. It is similar to the "Network Teaming" feature in Windows.
There are a few different modes but we will use mode 6, I think it's the best of both worlds, as it is not just a failover, but it provides round robin, so you will get redundancy and load balancing. So if you have a 1G single port, you will have a combined throughput of 4G at this point. Just bear in mind that the true thr........
Why choose OpenVPN instead of a firewall appliance?
OpenVPN can be a reliable and easy replacement for traditional hardware or just be an additional tool that your company uses so that the firewall can focus on its job rather than acting as a VPNappliance at the same time.
When comparing OpenVPN with traditional firewal........

MySQL on Debian versions is configured differently than the native local MySQL plugin so you will be disappointed when your password on the mysql client fails by default.
Here is how you reset the MySQL root password the proper and "working way"
#first we gracefully stop mysql
sudo systemctl stop mysql;
#then we forcefully kill any mysqld process just in case
sudo killall -9 mysqld mysqld_safe;........
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:
It is very silly but the default on the ifup-eth script tells dhclient ( the program that obtains a DHCP IPaddress if you have selected DHCPin your ifcfg-eth* config file) to EXIT / QUIT if the first attempt to obtain a lease fails.
No amount of dhclient.conf settings will fix this because if dhclient is started with -1 (which it is by default)then dhclient will quit.
This is obviously very bad for MOST cases. Say for example you have a power outage or........

It is well known hackers, the NSA, CIA and other groups have created malware to secretly turn on your webcam and microphone on your phone, tv etc.. But fortunately on our computers and laptops we have some options.
Most webcams use the "uvcvideo" kernel module / driver. You can disable this in two ways on boot. I recommend both just as a failsafe.
Disable it on rc.local once your system boots automatically

*Update so this doesn't work it must be something to do with the path of nfs or something else but the installer fails with "Installer crashed" at the end whereas with the CD/USB it works.
This assumes you've already installed and configured a separate PXE/DHCP server somewhere else and your /tftpboot directory is setup.
This is for Linux Mint 18.1 but generally applies to most versions although you may have tro change things like "casper"........
This was a horrible shock after upgrading fromUbuntu 9 to Linux Mint 17 and I found that the last distro to support tsclient was Debian Squeeze.
For some reason it has disappeared for a long time and the new options such as rdesktop and gnome-rdp do not have any start menu entry and just aren't done as well as tsclient.
Fortunately there is a solution:
tsclient surprisingly can be downloaded as a direct .deb package and it fails with some variou........
It looks like newer versions of Centos no longer have encfs so you have to compile it, only it does not work and fails so those wanting encfs should probably use any other OS which supports it better.........
If a service is not working and resetting it to defaults is not working and you get bizarre error messages it is probably a broken update and possibly duplicate package.
Take in this case "exim" not working even after resetting to defaults.
Check for duplicates:

SSH Public Key Authentication (Login Without Passwords)I've gone over this before but just a quick note!

User nobody in passdb, but getpwnam() fails!
I never found the solution to this in the web, as usual so Ithought I'd post the fix. In plain English smbd is telling us that the user "nobody" does not exist in /etc/passwd.
You can simply add this to your /etc/passwd file like so:

I've had an old Blackberry for a few years and I was ready to spend some serious cash on a nice Nokia. I love the idea of the Linux based Symbian S60 OS, so I was looking at phones like the E63, E71 (both are basically the same, at least CPU/screensize although E71 is thinner, has a 3MP camera, has GPS, and has dedicated buttons to adjust the volume).
Then Iheard about the N97 and what a revolution it was supposed to be and it was even compared to iPhone.
