  1. [ubuntu] kernel 4.4.0-51.72 broke NVIDIA drivers

    The upgrade to kernel 4.4.0-51.72 broke Nvidia 367.57 driver. GPU no longer accessible to BOINC. Not only that, no amount of rolling back kernel versions and re-installing driver manage to get the...
  2. [ubuntu] 14.04 64-bit Rythmbox shuffle plays only subset of tunes

    This has been annoying me for a while. On the bottom of my

    Rythmbox screen it shows 255 songs, 23 hours and 14 minutes, 3.8 GB

    Set to shuffle, whether I close it at night or not, it seems to...
  3. Ubuntu 16.04 on Windows 7 HP Laptop

    I have tried several times now, but Ubuntu 16.04 64-bit will not correctly install alongside Windows 7 Pro on this machine. It complains about UEFI and does not recognize Windows 7 UEFI. Mint 17.3...
  4. [ubuntu] Ubuntu 16 GUI tool to create IMG file of SD card

    All,

    Yes, I have seen many posts for how to use the dd command to create an IMG file of an SD card, but, isn't there a GUI tool at this point? I mean we can now right click on an IMG file and...
  5. [ubuntu] Re: Can one Install Ubuntu on a Netbook Flexx 11?

    In case anyone cares, there was a new entry on Launchpad today about this. Below is what showed up in email

    =====
    Just add this to the ISO root dir:

  6. rsync FROM wd mycloud to linux laptop command line

    All,

    this should be simple, but the answer is not obvious from searches. I can easily bookmark mycloud folders with the GUI, but I'm looking for a solution which will let me rsync FROM a directory...
  7. [ubuntu] Re: Can one Install Ubuntu on a Netbook Flexx 11?

    Well, I have already prepped this frustrating hunk of *&(*&)( to give to someone else. The trail of tears might be getting shorter for the rest of you though. Got email notification about my...
  8. [ubuntu] Re: apt-get build-dep ran out of space fixed that but now won't install

    It was build-dep not a package. I spent about an hour trying to figure out what was missing and finally had to give up. In the morning I will wipe and start over. Seems the path of least resistance...
  9. [ubuntu] apt-get build-dep ran out of space fixed that but now won't install

    All,

    I was executing this line: sudo apt-get build-dep libqt5gui5
    when ran out of space. Resized with gparted, but now apt-get thinks it completed the install because it was expanding files.

  10. [ubuntu] 14.04 serial port random 0A 0E characters

    I'm working on some software using the serial port and Qt. There is another device periodically sending packets which get processed by this application. Machine is a vanilla and recent install of...
  11. [ubuntu] Re: How to change syslog min log level in Ubuntu 14.04?

    Actually, forget about it. I'm just going to hack it into my logger class. Sweeping changes to fundamental things are _never_ good ideas. Some day the Linux world may learn that.
  12. [ubuntu] How to change syslog min log level in Ubuntu 14.04?

    Previously, one used to be able to set the minimum log level in /etc/syslog.conf. There may have even been a command line utility so one didn't have to hack. Today I went looking and it appears...
  13. [ubuntu] Serial port sporadic characters issue

    Weird problem. I've done serial port communication since the days of the original XT computer. Not seen this issue.

    Ubuntu 14.04 32-bit all updates applied.
    Qt 5.4.2

  14. [ubuntu] Re: Can one Install Ubuntu on a Netbook Flexx 11?

    Sundays seem to be a day of punishment for me. I tried installing the Debian multi-arch on this in nuclear strike mode with the extra SD card removed. It installs but cannot identify network card. It...
  15. [ubuntu] Re: Can one Install Ubuntu on a Netbook Flexx 11?

    Okay. I have completely trashed my unit. It would boot nothing because the EFI area got messed up with all my copying and renaming of files. I tried a nuclear strike option with Elementary. Even...
  16. [ubuntu] Re: Can one Install Ubuntu on a Netbook Flexx 11?

    All,

    I wasted a _lot_ of time over the past few days trying to get Linux in Dual Boot mode onto this device. Debian refused to recognize the second SD card, so it was mostly a non-starter after ...
  17. [ubuntu] Re: Can one Install Ubuntu on a Netbook Flexx 11?

    According to this post: http://blogs.intel.com/evangelists/2015/08/11/update-on-ia32-uefi-and-linux-support/ Debian 8.1.0 has a multi-arch version which solves this issue. I scheduled a download...

    Blog post about path I went down can be found here: http://www.logikalsolutions.com/wordpress/?p=1588

    Really too bad Elementary wouldn't work.
  19. [ubuntu] Re: Can one Install Ubuntu on a Netbook Flexx 11?

    Apparently there is not enough frustration in my life. I spent most of the day yesterday and most of this morning attempting to get a version of Linux installed on this thing. Installation has become...
  20. [ubuntu] Re: Can one Install Ubuntu on a Netbook Flexx 11?

    I decided life didn't have enough frustration today so I rufused the Elementary OS ISO onto a thumb drive, then had to drag and drop the 32-bit UEFI file I use everywhere to make it boot....
  21. [ubuntu] Re: Can one Install Ubuntu on a Netbook Flexx 11?

    Wow! Mint had to drop back to a beta release of 17.3 instead of shipping at end of October. Beta "just" came out in past couple of days.

  22. [ubuntu] Re: Can one Install Ubuntu on a Netbook Flexx 11?

    Never buy anything from/through Amazon. They are a malignant tumor which will one day end the human race.

    Whenever I get around to it I have adapter cables that convert USB to micro-USB. They are...
  23. [ubuntu] Re: Can one Install Ubuntu on a Netbook Flexx 11?

    Nothing out of the ordinary. I haven't put hundreds in the thing, but, the drives I have which work everywhere worked in it and the ones which only work in "some" machines didn't. I haven't noticed...
  24. [ubuntu] Re: Can one Install Ubuntu on a Netbook Flexx 11?

    Most of the ISO to USB tools you get from Windows vendors are the repackaged Microsoft Tool which only works with Windows ISO files. Do a Web search for RUFUS. Get it from the creators Web site not...
  25. [ubuntu] Re: Can one Install Ubuntu on a Netbook Flexx 11?

    My time for testing may be limited. Just got a phone call about a 6 month contract in Boulder. Far too early to tell if I will be going that way or not, but, I won't be taking the unit with me if I...
