    [SOLVED] Re: Cinnamon on ubuntu12.04lts?

    I'm in the same boat. Looks like it's got something to do with the nvidia driver (for me, at least). If you remove nvidia-current, Cinnamon will load just fine. I wonder if it would work if I...

    [ubuntu] Re: Dell PowerEdge 750 + Ubuntu 11 Server

    Reboot it and hold shift while it boots up; that should dump you into the grub menu - from there you can edit the default boot option or boot into Ubuntu with serial console support.

    802.11N is often not as speedy in practice as it is in theory. Try an iperf test from your wireless machine to the server and see what you're getting for throughput. I doubt that the md is at fault...

    Have you taken a look at FreeNAS? I'm not sure about the active/passive standby stuff, but I've used it in VMs to make pretend iSCSI SANs in the past.

    Given what's been posted so far, block it. If you didn't modify the default setup, nothing will break.

    [ubuntu] Re: Raid 5 did not grow upon adding a new drive

    I wouldn't expect the space to dynamically grow as the raid reshapes. Report back when the rebuild is done if you're still having problems. Otherwise, sit tight.

    Yes, you should see a series of file requests starting with a really specific file name and then broadening out until it gets a match. Are you sure the tftp service is up?
