By Billy

I’m running kubuntu on my dell xps 9350. After the upgrade to 16.04.3 the suspend is not working anymore.

Any suggestions/help about fixing this are much appreciated.

Kind regards,

VoIP traffic forwarding to port 80

By ed0

in my college we have a filtered network that won’t let through VoIP calls of any kind (as well as blocking bittorrent clients).
I’d like to channel all the programs connecting to the Internet through the 80 or 8080 port, something I did on Android with an app called Drony. Is there any way for Ubuntu to achieve this?

High CPU usage Ubuntu16.04 LTS

By hech2

File Type: jpg

i have installed windows10 and ubuntu 16.04 (dualboot) on my lenovo E460.
On Windows everything works fine but if i boot ubuntu i have really high cpu usage (for example while running firefox, or doing other normal stuff (which should not use much CPU)). Sometimes it gets so high that i cant work with my laptop.

About my laptop:

• CPU: Intel Core i5-6200U, 2x 2.30GHz
• SSD: 192GB
• GPU: AMD Radeon R7-M360

And a screenshot (htop):

After lamb install, can’t run php scripts on localhost

By Metaphysiker

I followed this tutorial to install lamp: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-install-linux-apache-mysql-php-lamp-stack-on-ubuntu

At step 4: See PHP on your Server, I was told to do the following:

First create a new file:

> sudo nano /var/www/info.php

Add in the following line:


Then,I should see a page with lots of information, when I type in localhost/info.php

But the page is just white. No error message.

If I type in localhost/index, then the Apache2 Ubuntu default page loads.

Later, I moved info.php to /var/www/html but the page is still white.

At this point, I’m clueless. Any suggestions to fix this problem?

Can’t upgrade kernel in xenial

By msztolcman

I have a problem with one server. Some time ago there was installed trusty, then I upgrade it to xenial. The problem is that it looks like he doesn’t want newer kernel 😉

hm, 3.11? But why?

There is nothing related to 3.11…
There was menu.lst in /boot/grub with entries related to 3.11, I removed this file.

There is nothing related with 3.11 in /boot or /etc/default/grub, /initrd.img points to boot/initrd.img-4.4.0-45-generic, /vmlinuz points to boot/vmlinuz-4.4.0-45-generic etc.

What can I do to upgrade kernel to 4.4.x?

BTW, after every change I remembered about update-grub, sometimes also I was doing update-initramfs and rebooted server…
