comment Get mysql to start automatically on startup
Sorry for the delay, but I didn't have access to the server until today. Yes, /etc/init/mysql.override exists, and the entry is manual - should I remove that?

comment Possible security issue? (syslog connect messages)
@ThomasW. so you think there's no real issue here then? If you want you can post it as answer so that I can accept it. I must admit that I don't have too much in-depth knowledge about theese things, only basic experience, so I'm never sure if something is important or not ;) Especially if it says "connect from" I get a bit uneasy. And I have two full syslogs (maybe more, didn't check further back) only filled with the messages above and barely anything else.

@BubullC added them as requested - as far as I know, I didn't tinker with them at all. MySQL wise, I did little more than a basic apt-get install mysql-server, if I recall correctly.

comment Get mysql to start automatically on startup
Looking through the syslog, I only found a lot of other spam, but nothing relating to mysql after a message simply stating restart. (by the way, does that imply that there was a manual restart? Or are automatic restarts also logged like that?) Other than restart, there was only a series of connection and cronjob messages, nothing else as far as I can tell. mysql.log and mysql.err are both empty by the way.

comment Get mysql to start automatically on startup
@BubullC it definitely does not start automatically, I already tested that with restarts. I'll try to look into /var/log/syslog to see if I can spot anything relevant. If you have some suggestions for further informations I should provide (+commands) let me know ;)

comment Get mysql to start automatically on startup
That's why I was asking - I noticed that "already exists" line as well, and just figured it's talking about service mysql start/stop - and that's something I wanted to avoid to break, the reason for me avoiding tinkering with that. I'll check the logs and let you know.

comment eth0 connection fails
@ajaaskel I'll try it out, will be able to give feedback during the weekend when I'm back home, but if that works it'ld be perfect. So much for "certified" for Ubuntu (Lenovo T440p) ;)

comment eth0 connection fails
@muru I tried managed=true but the only thing that happens is that he infinitely tries to connect, while the "you are not connected" message pops up every second. Added lspci output for you.

comment eth0 connection fails
@TeresaeJunior After trying around (didn't have much of a choice) and retrying everything I tried at home, the service network-interface restart INTERFACE=eth0 command worked at work, while all other service-restart attempts (service network-manager restart) failed. I know that the command doesn't work at home (takes infinite time), and I guess always having to type that command isn't a solution either... at least I can use my laptop at work for the moment, but who knows what happens with the next restart.

comment eth0 connection fails
@TeresaeJunior Sorry that it took me so long, but this week was a bit stressy. It doesn't work at work anymore either, but just since today (yesterday it worked fine, at least at work) - with no further changes on my side (the laptop was shut down during the night). This could mean it has something to do with the router configuration? But to my knowledge, nothing was changed at our working place (I asked our network administrator) - and besides, even if something changed I'ld think my system should be able to handle it. I hope you can help me out, I can't do any work atm!
