You're trying to login twice as the same user, or as a different one?

comment Best practices for installing Java on secure server running Ubuntu 14.04 LTS
Ubuntu is not like Windows, where there's a distinction between the OS itself and addons like Java. In Ubuntu, software like Java receives security updates for the lifetime of Ubuntu, regardless of Oracle. So even if Java7 is considered insecure on Windows, it's still secure in Ubuntu, as long as you install normal updates. That's one of the reasons why Free Software and Open Source is so important.

@Jason: Security fixes gets backported in Ubuntu. So even if it would've been a huge security risk on Windows, it's not so on Ubuntu. If it's in the main Ubuntu repository, it gets security upgrades for the lifetime of your Ubuntu distro. So for Ubuntu 14.04, Java7 will be supported until April 2019. You don't need a major upgrade for that.

comment Snappy Ubuntu, how does it relate to Nix and Guix?
Snappy does not statically compile in libraries. It allows you to store libraries in the same folder as your binary so that you don't have to depend on system libraries, but it also allows you to rely on system libraries if you don't need a release independent package. So Snappy doesn't remove the benefits of having a stable LTS release. It just makes everything a lot simpler.

comment can't run executables “.x86” on ubuntu 14.04
@Swagmaster: That error means the file doesn't exist. You have to use the right filename, and it is case sensitive. You can't write "Home" if it's called "home". Enter the first letters and press tab, the system will autocomplete the filename for you.

Well, technically, it is, although I forgot about the read-only root fs at the time of writing. top is nice enough though.

comment sharing internet between network interfaces
@rubo77: I don't think that should be a problem. It uses a router and a dhcp server, pretty much like your wireless router at home.

comment ubuntu 14.04 package install fail (apt-get install error)
The install script for SQL Alchemy is trying to configure a database for you, adding tables to hold data. However, those tables already exists in the database. So you can probably just drop the "instances" table, if you don't have anything important in it.

comment Ubuntu Software Centre can't connect to the internet. 13.04
Ubuntu 13.04 was a short-term release that's no longer supported. You should upgrade to 14.04LTS, which will be supported until April 2019. Non-LTS versions are only supported for 9 months. Ubuntu 13.04 has not received any security updates since January 2014.
