With your backup tapes. Unix does not protect you from doing bad things. You specified the recursive & force flags, it assumed you knew what that would mean, and did what you asked. If the data is important power the machine off immediately (seriously, rip the plug out of the wall before the operating system writes something in that "free" space and ...

This problem has been solved by Serva (I'm related to Serva development) The complete kernel and append lines plus the additional initrd.gz required for PXE booting current Ubuntu/Mint live versions with CIFS can be found here Basically the problem is a Casper bug (AFAIK never reported/fixed before) that in the case of a CIFS netmount forgets to export a ...

Those iptables rules don't allow traffic to the VPN server, so the VPN can't be established. You need the following rules in the OUTPUT chain before the final DROP rule, where 1.2.3.4 is the IP address of the VPN server. These allow TCP connections to port 1723 (the PPTP control channel) and GRE packets (the data channel). iptables --append OUTPUT ...

The "agent" here is ssh-agent, a program that loads the private key into memory and holds it for future ssh connections to use so you don't have to retype the password. It looks like somewhere along the line, it is being commanded to forget the key (are you suspending to disk/hibernating? That might do it to prevent the unencrypted key from being written to ...

the getent passwd is just a part of it, it tell that the system can see the user and that the ldap is working, but the su might be using also PAM and PAM have it own set of rules, not just the system user list. As you are using MINT, you are for sure using PAM. check the /etc/pam.d/su file and any file it loads. you are for sure missing the ldap config in ...

I've posted an answer to Bradd's question on AskUbuntu: http://askubuntu.com/a/490900/297973. Long story short, you may need to add $KLogPermitNonKernelFacility on to rsyslogd's config.

My guess would be that you deleted /etc/apache2/sites-available/000-default.conf but left the symlink at /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/000-default.conf, which is now a dead link. Is that the case?

The logs are stored in /var/log/dmesg. Use the command dmesg or tail /var/log/dmesg to view them.

I was a bit afraid to change the permissions of /media because i have 2 other hard disks under that directory that i have to use under windows and the last permission change on /media/crash/Yari made that hard disk unwritable under windows. So what i did was to edit the file /etc/fstab by changing the line UUID=#my-hd-uuid# /media/crash/Yari ntfs-3g ...

In order for apache to access a directory, it must have access rights not only to that directory but to all directories above it. So you need to allow www-data read access to /media and /media/crash as well as /media/crash/Yari. In general, I would recommend that the apache user not have write access to the directory where the web pages live. It should be ...

I think you just missed to chmod +x index.cgi to make it executable. Apache is trying to execute it but not the correct permissions were met.

I'd check a few things. Directory permissions: If your home directory is /home/dxh/ and you just created /home/dxh/public_html/ to hold your web content, make sure the parent level directories are allowing access: ls -ld /home ls -ld /home/dxh ls -ld /home/dxh/public_html The permissions need to be at least '711' for each of these directories. That means ...

This is what worked for me, thanks to Zoredache. Be sure to replace $REMOTE_HOST with the host. NOTE: This assumes certain directories. cat ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub | ssh $REMOTE_HOST 'umask 077; mkdir -p ~/.ssh; cat >> ~/.ssh/authorized_keys'

There are two approaches to this, routing based and firewall based. Routing approach The typical routing table of a machine not connected to a VPN looks something like this: 10.23.11.0/24 dev eth0 default via 10.23.11.1 The first route is to hosts on the LAN, and the second route sends everything else to the default gateway. When connected to a VPN the ...

Add another default route with a higher metric pointing to a null interface. When the VPN is unavailable the 2nd route will kick in and blackhole the traffic

Instead of directly downloading and installing XAMPP, I would suggest you to use Mint/Ubuntu's built in repositories to install: MySQL, Apache, PHP...

Define a variable ServerName in your http.conf file. When a name isn't defined apache uses 127.0.0.1(loopback) address as the server name. This is not an error and apache is running despite through these.

The kernel uses an algorithm that attempts to fill the cache with as much stuff as possible. Its a cache, that is what its there for and the more stuff in cache the less stuff we potentially have to go back to disk for. Remember disk can be 100 times slower than the cache. Why is this a problem or what issue are you experiencing? What are you using to see ...
