  1. Re: LXC awesome, but how can we run multiple GUI desktops?

    @ grahammechanical

    Two further links that could be useful.

  2. Re: LXC awesome, but how can we run multiple GUI desktops?

    Further update:

    Still no joy. A lot of small irritations and one real killer. Tried both privileged and unprivileged containers using all combos of sudo and no sudo, but no go. It's easy to get...
  3. Re: LXC awesome, but how can we run multiple GUI desktops?

    I'm soon going down for my beauty sleep too. So a brief report before turning in:

    1. After creating new container, went through the whole apt-get install lubuntu-desktop routine.
    2. Then tried...
  4. Re: LXC awesome, but how can we run multiple GUI desktops?

    If you think it's beyond you, imagine the effect on an idiot like me.

    But I did find this.

  5. LXC awesome, but how can we run multiple GUI desktops?

    I've recently started playing around with LXC and am blown away by it―from the little that I so far know of it that is. Until this recent thread (thanks ian-weisser ):P), I didn't even know of its...

  7. [ubuntu] Re: while in suspend battery dies . Can boot to screen then can't find /dev/sdasbin t

    Suppose you have a database stored on a USB HDD and are referencing it (have it open and a record locked). You start fiddling with its data, but like most OS implementations these days, in the...
  8. Re: Just changed to Ubuntu from Windows need a book recommendation

    We all learn differently. I like nothing better than to sit down with a manual and read it from A to Z. But I admit to being old-fashioned in that way.

    You will find that the...
  9. [ubuntu] Re: while in suspend battery dies . Can boot to screen then can't find /dev/sdasbin t

    Your HDD has been corrupted, including the journal, which is serious. This happens far too often when suspending or hibernating, which is why many old-timers won't use either function. The messages...

    From a bare functionality perspective, I'd say you have summarized it quite accurately.

    Re: Video interference

    Man... you've just made me feel so old.

    Didn't know what Kodi was until Googling it and discovering that it's the new name for XBMC. These days, it's like I blink and miss most everything.

    All good suggestions, but it's an awful lot of trouble to go through just to turn one peripheral off. I would either just physically yank the thing or reactivate hibernation and be done with it. It's...

    [ubuntu] Re: USB power problem

    There is a middle state between sleep and hibernate that is available on some motherboards but apparently not on yours. It acts just like sleep but with a few extra steps: it purges your cache, spins...

    Yours might be this problem. It's worth following the instructions and seeing if it works.

    The new driver will not take effect until you reboot your system. Please do so and see if it helps.
  18. [SOLVED] Re: Slight video and sound skip in videos online and offline

    Good question. If you read the forums and Google around, you find tons of anecdotal experiences and little by way of reliable stats. Moreover, network file system performance is very dependant on...

  24. [SOLVED] Re: Slight video and sound skip in videos online and offline

    IMO if the problem extends across multiple browsers, then it isn't likely to be a Firefox CODEC issue. However, disabling the CODEC can't hurt as it's easy to re-enable if it turns out not to be the...
