  1. Re: determine if sdhc card is defective

    You can use the dd command to wipe the MBR and partition table. After that you should be able to partition and format. Use your favorite search engine :) Result e.g....
  2. [all variants] Re: How do I get rid of a linux system without losing the boot for the others?

    My approach would be to boot into Xubuntu and run the command below.


    sudo update-grub

    This will update grub with the information from the Xubuntu install; it will still pick up the edubuntu...

    You can't. The file system in Linux IS case sensitive.

    Re: MySQL not working

    No, the socket file is created by the mysql daemon when the mysql deamon is started. If it fails to start (or when you stop the service), the socket file is removed again.

    The log can be found in...

    Re: MySQL not working

    indicates that the server is not started. So you will not be able to connect anyway. Check the mysql error logs to find pointers as to why the service does not start.

    The command is startx, not start x ;) Question is why you need it on a server?

  7. [ubuntu] Re: Hardy shutdown halts but doesn't power off

    Without knowing the environment, you can NOT say that. This might well be a stand-alone setup.

  8. Re: Mounted drive fine, but strange UUID in file list

    Temporary mount is still true ;) But I overlooked the internal disks that are not mounted by default; my bad :(

    It's not clear from your last post if this is solved or not. If it is, please mark...
  9. Re: Mounted drive fine, but strange UUID in file list

    Maybe the use of /media and the same UUID that is usually used by automounting confuses the system?

  10. Re: Formated a drive but it went way too fast

    What was the command that you used?

    I used this a while ago (for ext3)


    mkfs.ext3 -c /dev/sdb1

    The -c option specifies the check for bad blocks. On a 1TB disk, it took two to three hours.

  12. [all variants] Re: GParted shows whole disk "Unallocated"

    Your first command (dd) wiped the partition table of /dev/sdc. The last 64 bytes of the 512 bytes that you wiped is the partition table; see e.g. http://www.cyberciti.biz/faq/howto-copy-mbr/

  16. Re: How to change from 12.10 to 12.04 ?

    The best way to chance is by doing a clean install; there is no easy way to 'downgrade'.

    If you want to get rid of Windows, don't use the wubi installer but do a normal install.

    You can use a...
  17. [ubuntu] Re: Defending Ubuntu Server from RedHats? College competition.

  24. Re: Lynx update and then upgrade to Ubuntu 12

    It's not so much that it's created on your Sony, but that you downloaded the X64 version.
