To prevent Users to write on the Shares if you run the Backup you can add: service haldaemon restart service messagebus restart service smb stop console service smb start exit This will stop Samba-Windows Shares! and prevent File-Access-Lockwaits!

Ubuntu 10.04 disable purple Boot Splash Lucid Lynx (usplash = plymouth) TTY0

Problem: If you install Ubuntu Lucid Lynx 10.04 or upgrade some Videocards shows the Bootsplash (now called plymouth”) not clear or a black Bootscreen.

Solution: – edit with #sudo nano /etc/default/grub – change line “splash” to “nomodeset noplymouth” – save and close nano – run #sudo update-grub ..reboot and enjoy default VGA Console.. Server PCs: don’t need Splash, with the Ubuntu-Server CD you can install without Plymouth!! then you only have to make a minimal setup, then change kernel […]
