    Never mind -- in my case it wound up to be a case of user-stupidity ... I typed the IP address wrong :(.

    [ubuntu] Re: Cannot ping bridged Windows XP KVM guest

    I'm having a similar problem as the OP, albeit with Debian Squeeze host and guest (I suspect my problem is the same or similar to that of the OP). Has anyone managed to find a solution for this?

    [kubuntu] Re: Kubuntu 8.10 Cluster PC

    Things aren't quite a simple as you make them out to be. Programs have to be specifically written to take advantage of a cluster, or there needs to be some way to divide up the work so that bits and...

    [SOLVED] Re: Slow machine, system logs bursting

    Do you have an ATA hard drive in the machine? It looks to me like it or the controller is potentially going bad. I'd suggest making a back-up copy of your data before proceeding further. Can you give...

    [ubuntu] Re: So you want to run your own nameserver. . .

    I don't think it's possible to have a domain name without some sort of registrar. The registrat is authorized by ICANN to register domain names; not just anyone can do that. You might want to check...

    [ubuntu] Re: how to install Python 3.1.1 as default ?

    If you downloaded the source tarball, the program needs to be compiled (this is what the "make" step in your original post does). Python is mostly written in C IIRC.

    [ubuntu] Re: Scheduled Back Up..?

    I'd suggest writing a simple shell script to copy the file to another machine, and then run it out off cron. The script could look something like this:
