I hit a problem when attempting to upgrade to kernel 3.17.2 on a
Some time between 3.13 and 3.17, the bonding driver has stopped
accepting ppp devices, instead throwing an error that the MAC address
cannot be changed.
(And does not allow this to be forced)
I suspect it's unlikely.. but has anyone here encountered this issue
and found a solution?
Alternatively.. do you know where the right place to file bug report
about this would be? It's been a while since I've filed anything
against the linux kernel itself.
can anyone think of any reason why on one of my systems I can't login
with lightdm? as soon as I do (with any account, including a brand new
one without any weird/old/obsolete dotfiles), it seems to login OK but
then logs out again immediately.
my normal desktop environment is xfce, but the same thing happens if i
tell lightdm to use lxde or gnome or anything else.
logging in on a text VT and running startx works perfectly, and is how
i've had to login for the last few months.
I have four other very similar systems where lightdm works without a
problem, including a mythtv box set to auto-login as the mythtv user.
two of them are sysvinit, two of them are systemd.
i can't see anything in the logs to indicate any problem, even the
auth.log just shows that the session was started and then the session
terminated immediately afterwards. any hints on what to look for in
the logs or where/how to increase debug log levels would also be

In Debian there's and image viewer (or something like that) that also
displays the image information inserted by a camera. The particular app I
am thinking about can be confgured to display the latitude and longitude
from the geotags, unfortunately I have forgoten its name. Anyone know of it
What I am requireing is an image viewer that will display the geotag data
in some format.
I am putting together a slide show of a large engineering project. S5 is
the framework being used "http://meyerweb.com/eric/tools/s5/". The slide
works great under Firefox, but its quite unexecptable under Microsofts
Explorer. As the majority of the target audence would almost certainly be
running windows, I appear to have a problem.
THe way the slide show works is one changes frames with the page up/down
keys. The frame is divided into three sections. The top section containing
the comments to go with the image, the middle portion is the image, the
lower section containing the overall title. Explorer takes no notice of
this formating, not even using the selected fonts just displays a series of
images with text in between them using whatever default font Exlploer has.
Unfortunately although now running Linux for around 20 years I no nothing
about web programming, or in this case xhtml and css what ever they are?
Anything I can do? Help would very much be apreciated.

Thanks for the reply, I am familiar with qeeqie, its a good app for images
but it does not display the GPS IFD from the exif data. Note 1.
I have found an answer though, slightly unfortunately it does not appear to
be in Debian, its the Java app "geotag". Availible from.........
It uses googleearth via the Chromium browser to display the geo tag
position, works great. For install info see........
One of course needs both chromium and googleearth installed.
Note 1: I use a Nikon D700 with the GPS1 attachment that automaticly tags
the image with its current GPS data when you take a shot. A REAL great
asset I may say.
If you use docker much at all, I highly recommend excluding it from
mlocate, if you use it. At least, with the btrfs version of docker (the
only one worth using), you end up with what looks, to the filesystem, like
an immense tree hanging off /var/lib/docker. And naive mlocate iterates
through the entire lot, indexing it.
Just wondering if anyone has attended Redhat Certified System
Administrator training in Melbourne and would recommend it?
Also interested in alternatives that might be worth a look?
Am running Linus Mint Qiana with the Mate interface. It's set to some
classic mode, if I recall correctly (to look as similar as possible to
an old Gnome style).
Normally, the "bottom panel"(?), along the bottom of the screen,
displays these things...
-- Towards the left: "Menu" (which leads to Shutdown, Search, and all
the installed apps), and all created short-cut icons.
-- Towards the right: Date, time, network connection icon, System
Update icon, sound control icon.
-- In the middle: Tab for each application that is currently open and
running (Firefox, Thunderbird, LibreOffice, etc.)
But, in just the last day, all of the currently running apps (i.e.
normally tabbed in the centre portion of the panel) do not appear in the
centre of the panel. I'm only accidentally and haphazardly getting
various programs to reappear on the screen, after I have minimised them,
but I'm not sure how.
Cause: Maybe I controlled my mouse incorrectly and can't recall how,
and have configured the panel incorrectly? I've read through the Help
offered when right-clicking on the Panel, and can see an incredible
range of features, but nothing on making the tabs dis/appear for all
Can anyone please help? ASAP?
I'm concerned about shutting down the system with running apps and have
trouble getting the running apps I want to access to "reappear" on the
I have rebooted the system, but that hasn't fixed it. i.e. Minimised
apps don't appear in the Panel.
I think it only has one "desktop". i.e. There doesn't appear to be a
shortcut way to switch between 2-3-4 different desktops/workspaces. So
I don't think that's the problem.
Thanks VERY much for any pointers.
I have a system running on a Linux *software raid* 10 setup on Ubuntu
14.04. This system is running very well.
However for some reasons this system needs to be moved from one
(hardware) host to another host (a HP ML110 G7 Proliant Server). I had
in mind to just take the drives from one machine to another. (The
actual workload is in a VM hosted on a very basic KVM installation. so
as long as I get a base host running, I am happy!)
The HP Proliant though has hardware raid, (and I don't think I can
disable it. The original host does not have raid.)
Can I install software raid on top of a hardware raid system? if Yes,
how would I set the hardware raid? in effect I need the software raid to
still see 4 hard drives?
I have a few cases where I'd like to encrypt without taking the system down
for extended periods, ie, servers.
In the windows/apple world truecrypt / bitlocker / filevault will all let
you encrypt the root partition as a background process, throttled to a low
IO load. Usually this requires a reboot to get started, then runs in the
Does anyone know how to achieve this in the Linux world? (preferably with
