  1. Re: Needed packages being marked for autoremoval??

    When you install a package it depends on other packages. The package that you've installed yourself is marked as "manually installed" and the dependencies that get pulled in with it are marked as...

    [ubuntu] Re: Can I kick-start my PC?

    It absolutely works when the computer is off. The way it works is that when the computer is off, the network device is still on and listening for a magic packet. The device that you're using to turn...

    [SOLVED] Re: 19.10 to 20.04 LTS release?

    There's no difference (other than usage cruft) between a freshly installed version and an upgraded version. Once you're on an LTS release you can stay there till support runs out if you want. You can...

    Re: Is there a CLI GPU Stress test

    They do show up after a while: they've had a massive increase in users since they started doing corona virus stuff, so there are sometimes delays in getting work units out to people.

    Re: Can't install CUDA

    No, you want to keep the entries for the graphics drivers PPA. It's the entries that point to those local CUDA repositories that you'd want to remove. And if you already don't have those entries,...

    [ubuntu] Re: Unable eject the tray of DVD Writer

    In that case: new DVD writers are cheap. It's not responding to commands, and you're unable to use the hardware override. I hope there wasn't anything important inside.

    Re: Can't install CUDA

    Never use the run file.

    It makes sense to clear out all your previous attempts before you do another one. You'd need to remove the entries in sources.list.d that refer to those local repositories,...

    [SOLVED] Re: 20.04LTS Upgrade

    Yep, that's how it's supposed to work; you'd get the testing updates until release, and then you'd be on the same release as everyone else. Many testers still do a fresh install at release, though,...

    [ubuntu] Re: Unable eject the tray of DVD Writer

    There should be a teeny tiny hole in the front of the drive that you can poke an unfolded paperclip into for just that situation.

    Re: Can't install CUDA

    Those instructions are awful. There are more thorough, but no less confusing - the Nvidia site really is terrible - instructions elsewhere on the same site. Using wget to download some random file...
  14. Re: NVIDIA driver issue ... still unresolved

    The Nvidia driver doesn't switch between branches cleanly, so the first thing to do is to remove whichever version you've got before you install the new one. You'll also need DKMS installed to...
  15. Re: NVIDIA driver issue ... still unresolved

    Of course you can. The requirement to use CUDA 10.1 is a version of the Nvidia driver ≥ 418.39, since that's when they introduced 10.1.
  16. Re: NVIDIA driver issue ... still unresolved

    A couple of points:

    For each version of CUDA, there is a minimum driver version that adds support for it. That driver version is included in the CUDA repositories for completeness, but is never...

  19. Re: No Audio - Attempted fix but made it worse

    Given that it used to mostly work, and non-specific tinkering has broken it entirely, a fresh install takes about 20 minutes. Since you need it back in a hurry, try not to break it again.

    [ubuntu] Re: Swap - The Age Old Question

    CPU usage is orthogonal to RAM usage.

    The big one is Java. It gets round to clearing up after itself, mostly, eventually, but in the meantime you'd better have some way of creating new pages.

    [ubuntu] Re: Monitor keeps shutting down
