comment Is Ubuntu MAAS free?
@MSalters "Canonical copyright license - that's automatic anyway, as they wrote it." - that document was built from launchpad branch from contributors of the open-source project MAAS. Being able to claim that Canonical "wrote" it just shows how shady the contributors license is.

comment Is Ubuntu MAAS free?
@MSalters agreed, but are those book created by contributing members as part of a open-source project? No they are not. That was why the question showed up in the first place.

@poolie Idd, don't really know what is the site's policy in this case. Tried to find the repo that contained the code that built it that document but that also failed. Will flag the post and let the moderators handle it.

@Mahdi then you should redirect the output to a file so you can monitor that.

@Mahdi then the solution proposed should work :) Sorry for that.

Hey @Mahdi I think you are doing this all wrong, I just checked cpulimit, it does not limit cpu access to executables that you are not running, for that to work bomi needs to be already started and running in your system so this approach is all wrong.

I think its because you are meant to run that as your user and not root. su user -c <command> should fix that.

Do you need to run that for your user or globally for the whole system? the solution I provided runs as root, if you want your user to be the one executing the commands change the lines after sleep with su -c user '<command>'.

@KasiyA Perfect, that's what was missing! Thanks for the suggestion, this worked perfectly in a test box.

@Joyce Hai, I am installing 15.04 and testing this again (this was done a few weeks ago and could not catch up with new packages). Will get back to you asap.

@FuzzyToothpaste That is your option, I am also fine with it. No one is saying what you can or not do, you could install a server release + icewm and that would suffice for all graphical tasks but that is not the point of the question. the question is how to disable it, not to un-install it or prevent installing.
