  7. [ubuntu] Re: Bash refuses to exit if ssh'ed to another machine and you run update-manager

    Interesting. One would think that to put a notification in the panel would mean it just does some IPC stuff to tell the panel "Hey I have a message for the user. Put this in your alert system" and it...
  8. [ubuntu] Re: Bash refuses to exit if ssh'ed to another machine and you run update-manager

    I use ksplice so I don't need to reboot. I've been automatically...
  9. [ubuntu] Re: Bash refuses to exit if ssh'ed to another machine and you run update-manager

    I tried it with -Y and -2 and typed exit when done. Still the same hang. Note I have a script I call update-system which does does the update without a GUI. It is essentially:

    Hmmm... I didn't know that or I misremembered it. Perhaps last time I dealt with it was 10.04... Looks like a server upgrade is in my future here...

  12. [SOLVED] Re: update for "Shell Shock" / or how to remove bash

    Can somebody tell me why my server running 13.04 is not offered an update for bash? My other systems (desktop and laptop) updated just fine. Now they are on 14.04 and I've heard that 13.04 is "end of...

    Ubuntu 13.10 but I'm still using the Gnome classic environment with gnome-panel. When I try to use Edit Menus to add an item it fails. What I've learned is that Edit Menus is really alacarte. And...
  14. [ubuntu] Re: Odd dependencies when attempting to remove seemingly unrelated packages

    OK, so I want to use the old gnome which is apparently called gnome-session-flashback with compiz. But in doing that it depends on gnome-screensaver. But I want to use xscreensaver. I can't remove...
  15. [ubuntu] Odd dependencies when attempting to remove seemingly unrelated packages

    I have a bunch of software I don't want installed on my system. So I try to remove them but when I do I am warned that other packages will be removed. I fail to understand some of these dependencies....

    [ubuntu] Re: How to get DPMS working again

    The issue is not really dpms on or off, it's the settings of standby suspend and off that seems to be the problem. Even if it is that dpms is turned off, who's turning it off?!?

    I think I agree with you that LVM makes this more difficult. Oh why did I set up LVM I'll never know. Meantime http://clonezilla.org/ seems to say it should be able to handle this. Alas whenever I...
