  1. [ubuntu] Re: why there are so many 'ubuntu base' updates lately? almost evry day or so

    I get these too. Not a major annoyance, but the ones requiring restarts are, so I queried in Chat.

    I do notice that Ubuntu Base is updated...
  2. Re: Different Updates on Multiple Computers

    Yeah, I just left it at defaults. Never had an issue with speed or update failures, it's just the frequency that has me puzzled.

    Re: what is your flavor?

    Re: Ubuntu crashes

    Same here, consistent recurring problems I traced back to Nvidia drivers (Software & Updates -> Additional drivers.) I have three machines with Nvidia hardware.

  5. Re: Different Updates on Multiple Computers

    Thank you, they are all at 18.04.4 (I think, the older one is off at the moment.) Yesterday that one got two updates, both requiring restart, which is mildly annoying.

    Not sure how to answer the...
  6. Re: Different Updates on Multiple Computers

    Thank you, that is "kind of" what I presumed about the timing, but what about the disparity of packages? For example, when a specific update would roll out for Windows, you could always watch for it...

    [ubuntu] Re: 18.04LTS Apache2 PHP7.2 includes

    Are you sure that is the correct php.ini? (phinfo() will tell you so.)

    Not sure why it's acting up, but you can add the directory to your include path or copy the files to where it's looking for...
  8. Different Updates on Multiple Computers

    I can speculate the answer and have my theories, but perhaps there is a more definitive answer. Priority: -2.

    What you are seeing is the browser's way of coping with rendering a web page that was designed top down instead of least common denominator first, then graceful degradation for additional features if...

  12. [ubuntu] Re: Help with using Youtube videos with Ubuntu.

    Hughes Net? I am so sorry . . . but it is probably the same situation I was in, there was nothing else available. Hughes Net will **always** tell you everything is fine and there were several lies I...
  13. Re: user verification in signups on a new website

    ^^ Yes if you are in control of both sites it is your job to make it easy for them in as little steps/actions as possible. Look into OAuth2 or some other SSO (single sign on) option. A lot of sites...
