    I'd run "sudo apt autoremove" first, if you haven't done so recently.
  6. [ubuntu] Re: dhcp only launches correctly after booting from windows

    All I can think of is that you're running some kind of firewall on the Ubuntu side which keeps packets from being sent to

    Re: Help with DNS and dnsmasq please

    To get Linux systems to resolve "unqualified" names like "myhost", you need to add a search parameter to /etc/resolv.conf that points to the domain name. Usually you can get the DHCP server to push...

    [xubuntu] Re: Dell SAS controller

    Let's start by making sure the card is recognized. Is it listed if you run "lspci" in a terminal?

  9. [ubuntu] Re: dhcp only launches correctly after booting from windows

    I'd start by running

    sudo dhclient -v
    and see if it reports any errors. If you have multiple network interfaces, add the interface name that points to the DHCP server (e.g., enp4s0, wlp2s0,...

    Re: Hosting Providers

    You can lease an entire virtual server from Linode for $5/month. You'd have to set up your own email system, of course, but it sounds like you would know how to do that. There are a few web-based...

  15. Re: Ubuntu Server 20 - How to assign a domain name?

    Do you want to access this server from its public address? Seems like a bad idea to me from a security perspective. At a minimum, run plex on a different port than its default.

  18. Re: Will Ubuntu shut down if UPS battery level gets too low?

    Like much Linux software, there's little to distinguish between server and workstation applications. You can run apcupsd on either.
  19. Re: Will Ubuntu shut down if UPS battery level gets too low?

    sudo apt install apcupsd

    From the manual page:

    If you have networked Linux PCs, the daemon can be configured to notify the other systems on the network to shut down as well.

  24. Re: adding raid 1 to existing server. ( what next)

    You need to be a lot more careful when typing. It's not "blkdid" but "blkid". Also your /etc/fstab is missing the filesystem and options fields. Here's mine for a RAID array using its UUID:
