    [server] Re: Email on hard drive errors

    The host OS is vmware ESX.

    My thinking is that there is already an event which is being responded to with an action (errors=remount-ro). What I'd really like is a way to hook into that action...

    [server] Re: Email on hard drive errors

    Well, no such luck. SMART doesn't work on VMware guests, which I guess makes sense since it's a hardware-monitoring thing and this is emulated hardware.

    There's got to be a better way to do this...

    [server] Re: Email on hard drive errors

    Yeah, I was trying to avoid the "grep syslog" route, seems like this is a problem that should have an elegant solution out there already (I can't be the first admin to want to get alerted to disk...

    [server] Email on hard drive errors

    I have an Ubuntu server VM which occasionally has problems with its main partition disconnecting, possibly due to our VM backup software.

    While I wait for the VM admin to deal with the underlying...

    [ubuntu] (py)QT 5.4 on trusty?

    I'm running Trusty on my main work machine, and don't really want to upgrade the whole thing at this point; but I need pyqt 5.4 to work on a project. I've looked for a PPA, but there doesn't seem to...
  6. [lubuntu] Olympus VR-350 camera only mounts w/o SD card

    My son got an Olympus VR-350 camera for his birthday. His laptop runs Lubuntu 14.04.

    When we plug in the camera without an SD card inserted, it mounts fine and we can pull off the pictures...
  7. [SOLVED] Re: Bizarre: htop shows all cpus maxed, but no process is using cpu

    With help from the kind folks at #ubuntu-server, I was able to figure out that my .xsession script for the clients had a bug that was causing "ps" to be run in an infinite loop. The processes were...
  8. [SOLVED] Bizarre: htop shows all cpus maxed, but no process is using cpu

    Something went really wrong with my 12.04 LTSP server today.

    The clients wouldn't boot. When I ssh into the server and run htop, all the CPU cores (there are 8) appear maxed or near maxed. Yet,...

    [lubuntu] Re: lxlauncher won't launch kde games

    OK, I figured something out.

    Looking at the .desktop files for these programs under /usr/share/applications, the command (Exec=) specified in the ones that *won't* launch contain arguments, e.g....

    [lubuntu] lxlauncher won't launch kde games

    Playing around with Lubuntu 14.04 on an old touchscreen system.

    I configured lxlauncher to run at boot, and installed the kdegames metapackage. When I try to launch kde games from the lxlauncher...

    Re: Ubuntu vs Win 8.1

    You must be very lucky then. I've installed Linux on more computers than I care to count over the last ten years, mostly on Intel chipsets. I never had problems with Intel or Nvidia unless they...

    Re: Ubuntu vs Win 8.1

    Yep, I bet if we polled people who were unhappy with Ubuntu's performance, the vast majority would have been running AMD/ATI hardware when they tried it. It's really unfortunate.
  13. Re: Any good ways to have both OSX and ubuntu, while ubuntu is main and server like

    I can't claim much experience with OSX or mac minis, but you can be pretty sure that running OSX in a VM is not going to be very optimal. I've also heard that people have mixed results running Linux...
  14. [SOLVED] Re: Fresh install of 14.04, getting bizarre code on my screen

    Basically, GRUB is miconfigured and trying to boot to a partition that doesn't exist. Probably something failed to update when you reinstalled. The first thing I'd try is booting back to your...

    Could be the optical drive. They tend to go bad easily. Will the thinkpad boot from a USB flash drive?
  16. Re: What's so great about this Ubuntu thing..

  17. Re: Rolling Release Best Choice for XP Replacements

    I was mostly making the point that rolling != bleeding edge. Given the technologies chosen, SolydXK's desktops (KDE and XFCE from Debian) aren't likely to change much over the next five years.

    Re: Support confusion with LTS

    No.

    There is no way for you to have 5 years of support with Ubuntu + LXDE. No matter how you go about installing it, the result is the same.

    All flavors (ubuntu, lubuntu, kubuntu, xubuntu,...
  19. Re: 14.04 (Trusty Tahr) known bugs without work arounds

    Fair enough.

    I haven't had any of these issues, so I can't help you unfortunately.
  20. Re: Rolling Release Best Choice for XP Replacements

    Rolling release doesn't necessarily mean "bleeding edge"; it just means that you keep current with regular updates rather than big version upgrades. For example, SolydXK is a rolling release, but...

    So why report them here?

    Learning to program so that you can build your own Linux distro is like learning to farm so that you can cook your own food.

    Re: I'm Leaving

    It's worth noting that you don't have to run Ubuntu to participate in these forums. I've been running Arch on my laptop for some time now, I come here for the conversation and the free cookies.

    Pantheon and Unity have not had much luck in the AUR. Not that I'm actually looking for a new desktop, just sayin.
