I tested and still use x86/i386/32-bit hardware. post-18.04 and i386 Releases occurred for Lubuntu 18.10 & Xubuntu 18.10 and they were supported the full life of the cosmic cycle. ISOs were released into the disco cycle too (Lubuntu, Xubuntu), so any installs made with those were provided updated packages the entire life of the product, however both ...

You missed d while installing the package, i.e., tftp-hpa is TFTP client while tftpd-hpa is the server. If you run apt show tftp-hpa and read description, you'd see Description: HPA's tftp client Trivial File Transfer Protocol (TFTP) is a file transfer protocol, mainly to serve boot images over the network to other machines (PXE). . tftp-hpa is an ...

I am not sure if the specific goal is to know the nested loop operator behavior, or to find the bootvolume, but in your shoes I've solved that problem in the past avoiding the nested while loops since I find them confusing to read and maintain: #!/bin/bash for disk in `find /dev/ -maxdepth 1 -name \*sd\*`; do if df $disk | grep '/boot'; then echo &...

I still don't know why that original issue (time reset back to wrong time) has actually happened but I could get my time finally working by uninstalling ntp (sudo apt-get remove ntp) which automatically installed and configured systemd-timesyncd instead so that all my system times finally set themselves to the correct setting: Still asynchronous after ...

These days, a new group is created for every new user. The group has the same name as the user and only that one user as member. The first user account is special; it is added to more groups because that one is considered to be the primary user of the machine, so that user gets permissions to use all kinds of hardware or virtual machines etc.; but that is ...

Here is a low-level answer. It might need further refining if it is not exactly what you are looking for, but I can hardly help you more as I have only one GPU on my laptop. First identify the PID (process ID) of your OpenGL program. /proc/PID/fd is a directory that lists the files your program has opened. If you ls -l that directory, you will see files like ...

Zoom is difficult to close The close button ❌ on the top right corner of the Zoom window does not actually close the app. It minimizes the app and removed the app icon from the Dash/Dock (the left panel in Ubuntu). Normally Zoom icon in the system-trey/app-inidiator (top panel) would alert you that Zoom is not closed and close Zoom from there. However, a bug ...

I saw this got an answer on Discourse, but I thought I'd share what I found. Adding cloud-config-url=/dev/null to the kernel arguments does prevent cloud-init from downloading the ISO, and the ISO is only downloaded once. The full grub line is now linux /vmlinuz ip=dhcp url=http://${pxe_default_server}/tftp/ubuntu-20.04-live-server-amd64.iso autoinstall ds=...

The Ubuntu 20.04 inside the virtual machine won't actually be aware of your laptop's display (it is actually using a "virtual" display). That's why it can't control your laptop's screen brightness. If you test Ubuntu 20.04 with a Live USB (without installing) you should be able to see the brightness slider, or use your laptop's function keys to ...

swap Your /swapfile may be too small. Let's change it from 2G to 4G and see if that helps... Note: Incorrect use of the dd command can cause data loss. Suggest copy/paste.

How much free space do you have on the C: drive? The fact that, as N0rbert points out, mktemp isn't installed, along with the multiple No apport report written because MaxReports is reached already messages, seems to indicate a problem with free space.

I didn't find so far a specification of the ...

I also had this problem with the distribution version of FreeCAD 19. It does appear that because this is a snap package with its own virtual environment it cannot access 'normal' file system installations such as graphviz. Running the AppImage instead of the distribution version allowed me to access the Dependency Graph which requires graphviz in FreeCAD. ...
