Hi, here is a walkthrough to set up a NIS server under Ubuntu Hardy, because the standard configuration is only for clients. apt-get install nis NIS domain: _be creative_ :-) Then wait till the ypbind search is over (it tries very hard to find a server…) otherwise the package is not completely installed. In the mean time, you can prepare the server. /etc/yp.conf ypserver 127.0.0.1 /etc/default/nis NISSERVER = master NISCLIENT = false /etc/ypserv.
Hi, today I tried to do some online banking at www.sparkasse-zwickau.de. To my suprise, I took a very long time till the welcome page was loaded. I checked this again with another browser: same problem. Than I tried a host outside the university… wow, it goes very fast. Hmm, and another host inside? Also fast. So I’d check the installed windows and it also worked perfectly. I googled a bit and found that the problem is my network interface which is handled by the e1000 driver.
Hi there, long time ago I wrote an article how to make the DCP-110C running under Ubuntu Feisty. One commenter wrote me, that he got it also to run with Gutsy and Hardy. Now the time has come and some things are easier :) Since Hardy (I think) the cups-packages for the DCPs are now included in the package repository. You have to enable the multiverse repo to get it.
Hi, it’s now possible to remove a big part of evolution in hardy, because ubuntu-desktop does now only recommends some evolution packages. You can easily remove them by: sudo apt-get --purge remove evolution evolution-exchange evolution-plugins evolution-common evolution-webcal Only the following packages will stay: evolution-data-server, evolution-data-server-common Bye, Sven
Hi, if evince won’t print after the Hardy update, you can try the following steps which worked for me. Close all evince windows (pkill evince) and perform the following commands: rm -rf ./.gnome2/evince rm -f ./.gnome2/accels/evince sudo apt-get --purge remove evince (which will also remove ubuntu-desktop metapackage) sudo apt-get clean sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop (which will also add evince ;-) ) After that, printing should work again. Maybe some steps are not necessary… find it out for yourself :-)
Hi, today I upgraded my server from Feisty to Gutsy and than again from Gutsy to Hardy. Problems? Only one. dmesg was spamed with the following: device-mapper: ioctl: error adding target to table device-mapper: table: 254:1: linear: dm-linear: Device lookup failed The bug is known in launchpad: Launchpad-Link To solve this, simply remove evms: sudo apt-get remove evms Bye Sven
