  1. Re: Xen Cloud Platform (XCP) on Ubuntu Server 13.10 Saucy Salamander

    You show how to create LocalISORepository. But how do you populate it with ISO files? I just can't figure out how to get an ISO file that's in my file system copied into LocalISORepository.
  2. [all variants] OpenXen is a sealed box! How can I add an ISO to install an OS?

    I'm trying to create a VM in openxenmanager. How on earth do I access an ISO to install an OS? There's a LocalISORepository that's empty and no way to find out WHERE this is so that I can copy an ISO...

    WARNING: gnome-keyring:: couldn't connect to: /run/user/jcoles/keyring-Erg9MI/pkcs11: No such file or directory

    Does this matter? Will it stop something from working?

    [xubuntu] Re: pavucontrol is very limited - alternatives?

    Starting pavucontrol from the command line, I see it is subtly different to the panel Sound Settings. But still you can choose one input, one output with no ability to monitor inputs like Line In or...

    [ubuntu] Re: Does Gnome look like Unity now?

    So this is the new Gnome. My system's functionality is hard to find. Multitasking is cumbersome and it's slow as hell. I'll stick with Xfce. Thanks, guys.

  10. Re: firefox embedded in session, some actions abruptly end session

    Thanks, dentaku65. Firefox no longer starts with the session. And the stability problems appear to be solved too. Another one for my notes.

    I'm running xubuntu 13.40, which has been generally well-behaved since I installed it a week ago.

  12. [xubuntu] Re: duplicate sources.list entry messages unclear

    The more I look at it, the less sense it makes.

    There is no such string as "raring/restricted" or "raring-updates/restricted" in the sources.list file. So what are these error messages about?
  13. [xubuntu] Re: duplicate sources.list entry messages unclear

    The first command just lists sources.list.

    The second command shows


    Using the third command, I list those two dropbox files, which both contain: which is not included in sources.list. Do I...
  14. [xubuntu] duplicate sources.list entry messages unclear

    When I run sudo apt-get update I get some messages that are unclear:

    So, what is duplicated with what?
    Is the problem within sources.list, or between sources.list and /var/lib/apt/lists, or in...
  15. [xubuntu] Re: Can I install to a specific partition without installing boot loader?

    The installer does mount partitions. Excerpt from dmesg:

  16. [xubuntu] Can I install to a specific partition without installing boot loader?

  17. [ubuntu] Re: Enter password to unlock default keyring issue

    Part of the problem might be that libpam-gnome-keyring is not competently installed. From my new xubuntu 13.04 system:

    New releases don't fix long-standing problems, such as

    I have solved the problem by re-installing the iced-tea-7-plugin and iced-tea-jre-jamvm packages.
