    [SOLVED] Fix for cron silently aborting half-way

    For almost 2 years, I've been plagued by a mysterious problem on 10.04 where cron was only running the first few scripts in cron.daily and then aborting, without logging any cron related errors. I...

    [ubuntu] Re: Strange math results

    What if you try "657911351231.0 / 32.0"?

    Though the documentation says integer division in php should give floating point results whenever the result is not a whole number, so 5.3.2 is giving the...

    [ubuntu] Re: First Server Goal for Novice

    Testing it, I was able to leave the guest and host IP fields blank, entering only the port number (22 in both for ssh). Then I was able to connect to it through localhost with putty and winscp.

    [ubuntu] Re: First Server Goal for Novice

    I usually use WinSCP for uploading from Windows to Linux servers, being secure, easy, and requiring no setup (apart from installing openssh-server), and putty for other remote administration over...

    [ubuntu] Re: Large File Support under Ubuntu 10.0.4

    Seems like you're hitting a vobcopy limit, not a Linux/filesystem limit. Did you try the "-l" option with vobcopy?

    [ubuntu] Re: I need to hijack a terminal session

    In the future, maybe you can have a script that runs the program with the screen command, and have them use that instead of running it directly. Then you can probably use screen -r to steal their...
  8. [SOLVED] Re: Installing Ubuntu Server from USB stick to another USB stick

    I guess I didn't stare at the chart long enough. I could have sworn I saw a no for 64 bit next to the 330, but checking it again, it didn't. Sorry about that.
  9. [SOLVED] Re: Installing Ubuntu Server from USB stick to another USB stick

    I've done basically that before. Installing from usb to an sd card or usb drive on my desktop, configuring it, then booting it on a server.

    One problem I ran into was with dhcp, booting Ubuntu...
  10. [ubuntu] Re: Help with 11.04, large 66TB XFS partition, and random file loss!

    Does the raid card have a battery? If not, and the card's own write cache is enabled, that could also lead to corruption in a power outage. Though it's a long shot because it's disabled by default if...
  11. [ubuntu] Re: Maintaining hidden windows folders with samba

    I haven't used hidden files in Samba, but the "map hidden/system/archive" options use the executes bit of the permissions. Directories need to be marked executable to be fully read, so it wouldn't be...
  12. [ubuntu] Re: Help with 11.04, large 66TB XFS partition, and random file loss!

    XFS's delayed allocation causes a lot of this. Ext4 does it too. If a program writes to a file, but doesn't call sync() or fsync(), it'll keep the data in memory for a while before writing it to...
  13. [SOLVED] Re: Transfer files from W7 to Ubuntu Server? (rsync is very slow)

    Using a network share defeats the entire purpose of using rsync. You really need it running on the Windows server for it to work right.

    I have the cwRsync port installed on our Windows servers,...
  14. [all variants] Re: How to SSH to a machine, start a job, and close the SSH session without killing j

    I've had better luck with setsid than with nohup for some programs.

    A second issue is that stdout/err are still attached to your terminal session. When the program tries to print output after the...
  15. Re: Wich is better Wine, Play On Linux or Cross Over Linux ?

    I don't use PlayOnLinux anymore (used it a very short time), but it can maintain multiple wineprefixes and wine versions so each program can run on its own customized setup.

    The downside I saw was...

    [ubuntu] Re: Rsync Corrupted file

    I use rsync heavily, and never had corruption. But I've never used the sparse option (-S), and a quick google search for "rsync sparse corruption" returns lots of results, so I'd suggest taking the S...

    I don't have much bind or other self-dns hosting experience but:

    Re: Things that you hate in Ubuntu

    Last I checked, 3.6.18 is still the current version in the 10.04 repositories, unless you added other repositories or PPAs that supplied the new version.

    Re: Things that you hate in Ubuntu

    I've run into that a lot. In Firefox, you can go to about:config and add an integer "toolkit.storage.synchronous" with the value 0 which fixes most of the pauses.
