Openmips Enigma2 restart cron Gigablue

If you use a Gigablue SAT Box,after some weeks enigma2 will hang up: edit root crontab: $crontab -e insert: 0 1 * * * killall -9 enigma2 && sleep 5 && init 3 && /etc/init.d/samba restart 5 1 * * * wget -O /dev/null -q "IP-OF-GIGA-Box/web/powerstate?newstate=0&type=0" This will restart enigma2 Service, Samba and Webinterface too!

Ubuntu 16.04 Compiz Hang Kernel

After Ubuntu published the latest Kernel Patches for Meltdown and Spectre the Kernel 4.4.0-104/109-generic let Intel Graphics freeze or hang on Compiz with Unity. Howto fix: Install the latest Kernel 4.4.0-112-generic do: sudo apt-get install linux-image-4.4.0-112-generic sudo apt-get install linux-image-extra-4.4.0-112-generic reboot then: sudo apt-get autoremove –purge -y This removes older kernels and save Space! Do test the PC for hanging again!!!

Unity Ubuntu Topbar disappeared

I have often seen that the Unity Topbar of Ubuntu LTS is hidden or not clean loaded after Login. It’s Caching Problem of Unity (Compiz) and Lightdm, if the PC is not clean rebooted or started. Howto fix: sudo rm -fr ~/.cache/compizconfig-1 \ && sudo rm -fr ~/.compiz && sudo service lightdm restart Now relogin and check.. if ok do a Profile Backup! with: tar -cvzf /usb-backup-stick/compiz.tgz \ /home/username/.cache/compizconfig-1 /home/username/.compiz

Linux: Systemd ignore console-setup settings

If you work on older Laptops and you use a Console only System Setup like on Debian there is a Bug on systemd and the console-setup package since years. After reboot all Font Settings seems gone. But the Settings are not real gone, cause systemd does not pull the settings on boot! How to fix? edit the crontab of root by sudo su – crontab -e insert the /bin/setupcon command on „@reboot“ means on every boot! @reboot     /bin/setupcon > /dev/null 2>&1 save and exit, reboot now now the PC should echo big Fonts for old eyes „Terminus 20×12 Frambuffermode“
