Kommentare Kommentare deaktiviert
Von , Mittwoch, November 28, 2012

Problem:
Windows 7 hat ein neues störendes Handling, Fenster die mittels Maus zum oberen Bildschirmrand geschoben werden, werden automatisch maximiert!
Windows 7 offers a “new” feature called automaximize Windows if moved to the top area of the Screen

Solution:
Gehen Sie in die Systemsteuerung -> Center fuer erleichterte Bedienung -> Maus -> Haken setzen bei “Verhindern das Fenster automatisch angeordnet werden..”
Go to System Settings-> Ease of Access settings -> Mouse -> set “prevent windows from being automatically arranged when moved to the edge of the screen”

Debian Bug: Slow user switching at Console (su, sudo, slow ssh logon, slow PC,IPv6 Problems)

Von , Mittwoch, Oktober 10, 2012

Problem: On a Debian Squeeze/Ubuntu with default setup the interaction can be very slow at your Home Network. SSH Logon seems to hang seconds, Browser startup and www browsing could be slow or offer waits

Background: IPv6 was implemented on newer OS, but never used at Local Networks (IPv4) cause there are no IPv6 Nameservers!!!

Solution:

  • edit with #sudo nano /etc/hosts and comment out IPv6 with #


# The following lines are desirable for IPv6 capable hosts
#::1 ip6-localhost ip6-loopback
#fe00::0 ip6-localnet
#ff00::0 ip6-mcastprefix
#ff02::1 ip6-allnodes
#ff02::2 ip6-allrouters

  • then disable IPv6 on boot for the services and programs with #sudo nano /etc/sysctl.conf


#disable ipv6
net.ipv6.conf.all.disable_ipv6 = 1
net.ipv6.conf.default.disable_ipv6 = 1
net.ipv6.conf.lo.disable_ipv6 = 1

  • NOW reboot the PC and test all programs like ssh login, shell login, sudo switch, Browser..for speed should be faster..
  • THIS is SAME on other OS like Windows Vista, 7, 8.. same Problems!!

Von , Mittwoch, Oktober 3, 2012

Problem: On Debian Linux the brand new 3TB SATA Drives only seen as 2TB Drives by fdisk

Background: GPT Partition Table must be used as new technology

Solution:

  • install “gdisk” the GPT Tool for big Drives with #sudo aptitude install gdisk
  • clean the new Drives first Table Headers with #sudo dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sdb count=1 bs=512
  • run now #sudo sgdisk /dev/sdb
  • Command is “sgdisk” not “gdisk” = its Paket Name
  • same on other Linux/BSD Systems on Windows use Paragon Tools

  • You don’t need to do that, take a multi-protocol client like free pidgin available for Windows and Linux OS
  • no ads and no scripts needed.
  • get it here: http://www.pidgin.im

Solution Steps:

  • Check SATA Cable and reboot and check
  • Replug all Cables and reboot and check
  • Change the SATA PORTS! Sata1 to Sata2 for Disk0
  • Change the SATA PORTS! Sata3 to Sata4 for Disk1
  • Often the Harddisks are NOT damaged!!
  • Looks like a failed Hardware Control by the SATA 600 Controllers with SATA 300/150
  • take new SATA 600 Drives and recheck

Remark: Windows Systems have same Error without Logs, the Systems seems to hang for seconds!
