Please add more detail about how you restored the maildr and the error you get when restoring. Hard to answer your question without more detail.

comment Install XBMC inside Ubuntu?
No, it will install as a stand-alone app. Using the answer provided by Henry below, you will get the latest XBMC stable build. This is how I have it installed on my system as well as my HTPC box.

comment Install XBMC inside Ubuntu?
Just be aware that XBMC is going to be changing to a new product name in the near future to become "Kodi". Currently in beta.

comment Postfix SASL Authentification not applied
Have you perhaps induced an error by using cyprus in your config file when you really intend it to be cyrus?? See the smtpd_sasl_type = cyprus line in /etc/postfix/main.cf

comment /var/log suspicious entries
You could use a very low-threshold setting in fail2ban for failed ssh logins - 2 or 3 fails before banning - with a short ban time (10-15 minutes) to discourage the crackbots but not too long to leave you locked out if you pooch a login attempt.

comment /var/log suspicious entries
Do you need the ssh port open on the public side? What was the rule added in iptables? Having ssh exposed to the public side is going to generate a lot of hits from port sniffers and crackbots, which may be the cause of the entries you're seeing now.

comment Puzzled about DVD playback problems
Unless the DVD with the different title was the same length, it's hard to say if it's a problem with the disc. More likely is the drive can't track when it reaches the point where it fails. Try a longer running title and see if it has problems.

comment “mei_me 0000:00:16.0: no destination client found 0x00002285” spamming logfile, fix?
Ok, on my system it lists in the Boot Order as PCI BEV: IBA GE Slot 00C8 v1250 and I moved to the Excluded list in BIOS. Stopped the warning screen during boot about the mei_me as the kernel loads. I'm guessing that if you can locate it in your BIOS and disable it you will stop getting the errors since it won't try loading the kernel module for it.

It's actually listed in the boot devices list on my Lenovo desktop, but it's not obvious what it is.. something like.. let me reboot and get the right info. ;)

I was getting a message during boot regarding the mei_me that I got rid of by disabling the network boot device in BIOS.

bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=168403 It's the Intel management system in BIOS causing the problem. Check your BIOS settings and see if you can disable it.

comment Reformat/Erase and Install Ubuntu on Old Computer
And if the computer BIOS will not allow booting from the USB (common on non-UEFI BIOS), burning a bootable DVD on the MacBook through Disk Utility using the .iso image he downloaded would be the other, easy route.

comment Xbmc PVR error, trying to enable IPTV
Thanks for that info. Is there no official mythtv add-on available from the MythTV Project for Kodi yet? I could never get mythbox to work on my XBMC installs..

comment Xbmc PVR error, trying to enable IPTV
Are you sure that the mythtv add-on you're using is compatible with Kodi? And that it's in the Enabled Add-ons list and configured correctly? I'd expect some problems using a beta version..which is why I stick with the main releases of XBMC.
