  1. [ubuntu] Re: Natty: system freeze when using xvnc4viewer on Thinkpad X220

    I'm having the same sudden freezing problem (natty, Lenovo X220), but I'm not necessarily running a VNC viewer when the crash occurs. It usually happens when I'm actually using the machine, but not...
  2. [ubuntu] Re: restart remote sshd in debug mode-- how under upstart?

    Ah. Good idea.

    I'll have to punch a hole in the firewall for the test port, first, I guess, but that should work.

    Many thanks!

    I think I can adjust to the fact that

  3. [ubuntu] Re: restart remote sshd in debug mode-- how under upstart?

    CharlesA,

    You say, "...but if you stop the sshd server, all services are stopped". Yes, that's exactly what I said. And that's exactly what the problem is!

    Before the upstart-ification of...
  4. [ubuntu] Re: restart remote sshd in debug mode-- how under upstart?

    I think you both misunderstand something. Let me explain how sshd *used* to work (and I think it still does, really, and that maybe upstart just needs some minor refinement -- or maybe the...
  5. [ubuntu] restart remote sshd in debug mode-- how under upstart?

    Sometimes sshd (dpkg: openssh-server) is very persnickety and it must be debugged. The new drill with upstart seems to make this very difficult to do on a remote machine.

  7. [ubuntu] Re: USB CDROM/DVD Device Problems on Ubuntu 10.10

    Not sure my problem is related to this one, but I suspect it may be.

    [ubuntu] Re: USB drive disappears

    I have this problem on two servers running 10.10, each of which has 5 usb disk drives connected via usb. These disks have backups on them which are renewed every night via rsync.

  9. [ubuntu] Re: Strange vertical lines on xterm in 10.10

    I have the same problem. The vertical lines are the residue of the cursor. Since my cursor is red, I have red lines. This is not a problem in 9.04, 9.10, or 10.04. Only in 10.10.

    [ubuntu] Re: how to unlock default keyring

    As I already noted, this suggests the installation of a package that's nonexistent in 9.04, despite the fact that the title shown on the page says "Jaunty". Editing /etc/pam.d/gdm as suggested by...

    [ubuntu] Re: how to unlock default keyring

    The advice given here doesn't work under 9.04. It advises the installation of libpam-keyring, but there is no such package available for the distro.
