How is your server connected to the hosts you're running your clients on? Can you ping it? Is there a firewall in between them?

comment What are point releases in LTS versions?
I don't know about service packs, but I'm guessing that they don't give the ability to independently update the kernel and/or xorg, etc. The main similarity is probably that a point release PLUS the new kernel, xorg etc == what a new install would provide.

comment How to do Ubuntu upgrade 14.04 to 14.04.2
@HontváriLevente Yes. The distinction is the Hardware Enablement (HWE) stuff, which comes with new installs and which you can pick and choose from for new kernels, xorg etc. The question is, what is best for which circumstances....

comment How long after release will the last LTS get a HWE kernel?
I'm guessing it depends on the demands of proper LTS testing, how stable the kernel seems based on field experience with the release, and whether any packages might need to be backported for the new kernel (as sometimes happens with xorg updates that also come with HWE, but I guess that is rare for kernels). But thanks for the data!!

comment Network Issues since Trusty
Thanks for the helpful notes. That workaround worked for me, but it only fixes one SSID at a time. And this is not "harmless", as the dozens of commentators on launchpad bug 1323089 have made clear. Spamming the syslog makes it hard to see other problems, wastes disk space, and above all wastes people's valuable time. It should be fixed!

comment How can I split an animated .gif file into its component frames?
I opened my gif in gimp, but I still don't know how to view each frame individually - I just see the last frame. I'm working with this animation: /tmp/Non-Native-American-Nations-Territorial-Claims-over-NAFTA-countries-1750-20‌​08.gif

comment How to print a regular file to pdf from command line
An example of using a2ps would help. The --delegate option seems to be needed for pdf, but the man page doesn't really help there.

comment How to print a regular file to pdf from command line
Compared to the other answers, pandoc plus texlive produces bad output (not respecting newlines), and is overkill and confusing to boot. Lots more packages are needed, pulling in texlive, texlive-fonts-recommended, ruby, etc. E.g. I get pandoc: Unknown writer: pdf until I install texlive-latex-base. This is on trusty. See github.com/jgm/pandoc/issues/1155 Then I got an error about a missing font, then one about url.sty, etc.
