comment DNS issues on Ubuntu 12.04 with OpenVPN
Can you ping raw IPs? I had a similar problem and it turned out DNS was find, but my firewall was blocking everything. After I disabled that and/or added a rule, OpenVPN worked.

comment How to find USB hub speed
@douggro, It shows two entries of "Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub". I guess I'm misreading it? Strange the -vvv option shows something different.

@Raja, Run sudo lsusb -vvv |grep -i -B5 -A5 bDeviceProtocol. Then look at the entries listed as bDeviceClass Hub.

comment Release upgrade to 14 failed with a Python exception
Thanks for the update. But it still doesn't explain why I'm getting the error on my server. Note, it's not a desktop.

comment Release upgrade to 14 failed with a Python exception
What? This has nothing to do with my question. I'm trying to upgrade my release to 14.04, not a normal package upgrade. Please delete this answer or I will downvote it.
