    Re: Rebooting Via 'REISUB' Doesn't Work

    Good references, thanks. My "installer" script is a playbook that I run post-install, a collection of tweaks I have accumulated over time. That one line in /etc/sysctl.conf is the only change I make...

    Re: Rebooting Via 'REISUB' Doesn't Work

    Interesting. My installer script writes kernel.sysrq=1 to /etc/sysctl.conf, not /etc/sysctl.d/10-magic-sysrq.conf (which still contains kernel.sysrq = 176). /proc/sys/kernel/sysrq shows 1, so I guess...

    foo.cpio.gz - some other file type compressed by gzip.
    Using gunzip on the above files would create foo.tar or foo.cpio. You...

    Re: Rebooting Via 'REISUB' Doesn't Work

    According to the article you link, any value greater than 1 is a bit-mask of which functions are enabled. The article doesn't say what the different bits enable. Try writing a "1" to...

    [ubuntu] Re: VPN speed?

    Your VPN server is at your home, which has an upload speed of 10M.

    [SOLVED] Re: printing terminal stout to text file

    [ubuntu] Re: TFTP Ubuntu 18.04

    It is quite possible that the hosting provider blocks tftp - it's a protocol that's generally only used locally for booting hardware appliances.
    My first step would be to verify that your tftp...

    sudo chmod g+rwx /sdb/home/tom/documents/[name of file]is wrong on two levels.
    Firstly, I think you probably mean /dev/sdb and not just /sdb.
    Secondly, /dev/sdb is the device driver intarface to...

    [SOLVED] Re: Gnome-terminal menu stuck in taskbar

    Aha! Found it. And it's a doozie!
    In desperation, I renamed my home folder and made a new one (using a console login), just so I could lose all the personal settings. That was fine. About the first...

    [SOLVED] Gnome-terminal menu stuck in taskbar

    Re: Does not source bash_aliases on startup

    Re: Does not source bash_aliases on startup

    That depends on what's wrong. The above (using .bashrc) works for me when I log in. What do you mean by 'on startup of the system'? Is this something different to the user login? Remember that as the...
  17. [SOLVED] Re: resolv and multiple search separator problem

    Re: Can't get listening ports

    Kali is a security conscious penetration testing distro. It should not surprise you at all that it's not listening on any ports by default. I'd be a little surprised if it was.

    That would indeed suggest that no processes are listening, which is unusual for an Ubuntu install. Is this in a VM? What's the context?
