Execute: alias cp and see if cp has been aliased to "cp -i" In that case run: \cp -r /usr/share/drupal-update/* /usr/share/drupal to ignore the alias

Ok this really depends what you use your machine for. If it's just a desktop machine then backing up your home directory /home/username will be enough. This will make sure you keep all of your documents, music, application settings, chosen theme and the like. If you've been been installing services list apache, mail servers etc then I would advise also ...

Perhaps mac address or driver has changed for the network card. Remove /etc/udev/rules.d/*-persistent-net.rules and reboot vm.

Ubuntu has an init system for starting various services on boot, depending on the runlevel that is booted into. Apache by default adds itself to the various /etc/rc*.d/ when you install it through apt, so it gets started by default for most runlevels. To remove the startup links to the init script for apache2, you'll want to run something like: ...

According to http://packages.ubuntu.com, the documentation for apache is in /usr/share/doc/apache2-doc/. If however, you're refering to the DocumentRoot, the default location is /var/www.

They maintain archives of the package repositories for EOL software at http://old-releases.ubuntu.com You just need to change your deb and possibly deb-src lines in /etc/apt/sources.list file from the (likly) current lines that look like http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu to http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ and you should be able to pull the old ...

sudo tasksel install lamp-server It installs everything for you.

Backups are always hard to tune properly; especially because people have different needs, and such needs are usually a mix between data 'snapshot' backup, data archiving, server (config) backup, reliable service, etc). 3dinfluence and davey are both right: it's important to try the restore operation (as Joel says), and a set of cron scripts is usually the ...

Virtual PC doesn't support 24bit colours, you must manually set X to use 16 or 32bit colours.

You can either wait for a distro-integrated kernel to include it, wait for someone in the community to build an appropriate kernel package (which probably won't take too long), or patch and build a kernel yourself. Unless you're familiar with the procedures for building a kernel and applying kernel patches (given that there'll likely be significant changes ...

Copy your entire home directory (~/) and /etc. All settings should be in those two folders.

You shouldn't need to fail them. Since they should have already been failed when you first noticed the issue and the RAID members are now removed. There are just a few steps to get it back up and running. Setup partitions on the replacement disk. These partitions should be identical in size to that of the failed and currently active disk, and should be ...

There are many options out there depending on your goals, infrastructure, and media preferences. First you'll probably need to figure out how to setup cron jobs no matter what solution you end up going with. It's what runs scheduled tasks on *nix. As for the backup itself I tend to go with rsnapshot as it's simple enough to setup and does what I need. ...

have you checked pendrivelinux.com or tried using unetbootin as recommended by the #1 ranked google search for "ubuntu usb boot 9.04" at http://www.addictivetips.com/ubuntu-linux-tips/how-to-create-a-bootable-live-ubuntu-904-usb-drive/ ??

cp -f will not ask for confirmation (that's force) So do cp -fr /usr/share/drupal-update/* /usr/share/drupal

The Sun Java packages keep track of whether you've agreed to the license agreement using Debconf. You can bypass that check by running echo "sun-java6-bin shared/accepted-sun-dlj-v1-1 boolean true" | debconf-set-selections before installing sun-java6-jre or whatever Sun Java package you want.

I would probably move the RELATED,ESTABLISHED ... ACCEPT rule on the INPUT chain to the very top of that chain. Unless most of your connections are extremely short-lived, I'd wager that the vast majority of incoming packets are going to be part of a connection and should be ACCEPTed by that rule. To get a better feel for where packets are landing in your ...

I've solved the problem myself. Download the ISO-File and mount it in a local folder: wget http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/releases/jaunty/ubuntu-9.04-server-amd64.iso mkdir cdrom mount -o loop ubuntu-9.04-server-amd64.iso Adjust the /etc/apt/sources.list and add the local folder deb file:///tmp/cdrom/ main Perform an update and install ...

Looks as though you had Ubuntu installed so that it used a flat file (C:\ubuntu\ubuntu.disk) as its filesystem. If it was still around, you could boot up Linux using a Live CD of Ubuntu, mount that image and then proceed to copy things from it without a problem. But, you deleted it. The data is gone and probably unrecoverable since you said you deleted it ...

please upgrade your openerp version to 5.0.6, and install python-lxml

On Debian-derived systems like Ubuntu, it is possible to very closely duplicate the software installation from one machine to another by using the package management tools. Lets say that MachineA is the original server you want to mirror, and MachineB is the server that you want to become a mirror of MachineA. (All commands quoted here must be run as root.) ...

You can set these in /etc/security/limits.conf on Red Hat systems. I think it's the same on Ubuntu. It has examples by default, they're pretty straightforward. Post back if you have problems.

Use "Wake-on-LAN" (WOL) IF you have a device in front of it that supports it (e.g. a Linksys WRT54GL with Tomato or DD-WRT). Keep in mind that your laptop also has to support this from the BIOS! If not: use a clock-timer to turn it on might be a work-around... I used it like this on such a device: Wake-on-LAN (tutorial). Again: if you don't have such a ...

Probably too late but.... Changing jaunty to karmic and old-releases to releases gives 404 errors This should be old-releases to archive

Solved it. Turns out that /etc/update-manager/meta-release is pointing to http://changelogs.ubuntu.com/meta-release and that file says: Dist: karmic Name: Karmic Koala Version: 9.10 Date: Thu, 29 Oct 2009 12:00:00 UTC Supported: 0 Description: This is the 9.10 release Release-File: http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/karmic/Release ReleaseNotes: ...

After moving equipment one thing that you should check that your card is properly seated. ifconfig -a showed eth2 eth3 and eth4, it seems something happend to eth0 and eth1, when i did a dhclient on eth3 it came up. On a Debian/Ubuntu system the interface naming is controlled by /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules. Feel free to go in and edit ...
