    Re: No internet connection

    The commands you've run so far say the problem is between the router and the internet, not between the computer and the router.

    Re: Can I reinstall qemu KVM?

    I knew that - virsh and virt-manager only work with libvirt.

    Re: Can I reinstall qemu KVM?

    There are 2 parts to a valid libvirt/KVM/QEMU setup. If you don't use libvirt, things are easier.


    Storage for each VM
    XML definition file for each VM

    You can completely change the storage...

    Re: No internet connection

    DNS failing doesn't mean that the internet is down or your access is broke. It just means that DNS isn't working.

    See if you can ping a well-known IP -

    ping 8.8.8.8
    Does that work? If it...
  5. Re: Automount shared directory from Synology NAS to Ubuntu 20.04LTS Failed

    CIFS is user-to-server.
    NFS is system-to-server (or server-to-server)
    If we use NFS, then user access is managed by their local userids ( can use LDAP too). It provides native file permissions and...

    Re: Apache2 failed to start

    Apache should be managing files in /var/.... it is a permissions, owner and group thing.
    Users should manage files in their HOME directories. Also an owner and permissions thing.

  7. [server] Re: Unable to start NFS on Ubuntu Server 20.04

    Sometimes updating the NVMe firmware will help with boot and other issues. I've never done it, as I don't have any NVMe installed (have one on my desk waiting for a new system build).

    [ubuntu] Re: Cannot remove items from full disk

    The lvextend and lvreduce commands can only resize certain file systems with the -r switch (there's a longer switch version, if you want more clarity), so be certain you have one of those file...
  10. Re: Can you place a .txt file onto a pdf from the command line?

    Perhaps pdfattach will work? It is part of the poppler-utils package.

    OR use pandoc to make PDF from many other formats.

    $ pandoc test.txt -o test.pdf

    And use pdfunite to place the new...

    [ubuntu] Re: Cannot remove items from full disk

    So, whenever using lvextend, **always** add the -r switch. This will do the resize2fs automatically.

    I think your VM storage is the real issue long term. You can easily cut that 50% to get some...

    Re: Apache2 failed to start

    Linking to files in a HOME directory is generally a bad idea for apache. There is another method designed for exactly this purpose - the public_html option in apache. Look that up and use it...
  13. Re: Ubuntu does not always communicate with server.

    You probably don't need so many pings.

    [ubuntu] Re: Cannot remove items from full disk

    I love starting small, but being prepared to add more space as needed, where needed. THAT is a chief reason for using LVM (along with snapshots and sparse LVs).

    /var also contains the...

    [ubuntu] Re: Cannot remove items from full disk

    You are using LVM, so there is hope. To provide an overview:

    sudo vgs
    sudo lvs
    If you've followed the best practice with LVM and haven't allocated all the VG storage to LVs, then you can...

    Beware of some things that are still breaking in 20.04 which could be very important. There are lots of issues with NFS, it seems. I spent the last 45 min trying to setup an NFS server on 20.04 and...
