Install Ganglia on Ubuntu 15.10 Server (Wily Werewolf)

Ganglia is a scalable distributed monitoring system for high-performance computing systems such as clusters and
Grids. It is based on a hierarchical design targeted at federations of clusters. It leverages widely used technologies such as XML for data representation, XDR for compact, portable data transport, and RRDtool for data storage and visualization. It uses carefully engineered data structures and algorithms to achieve very low per-node overheads and high concurrency. The implementation is robust, has been ported to an extensive set of operating systems and processor architectures, and is currently in use on thousands of clusters around the world. It has been used to link clusters across university campuses and around the world and can scale to handle clusters with 2000 nodes.

Trying to get my server setup?

Hi everyone

We recently purchased a dedicated server from 1&1 hosting, we were kind of surprised when all we got was a command prompt but I am willing to work through it.

We are running Ubuntu server 14, i was able to establish a Putty session with the server. I am trying to install a GUI for the server (Yes I am aware the server does not need a GUI for most server tasks) but this server will be running a GUI driven automation software. Honestly it would just make life easier

I did install the KDE desktop however it is not starting, can someone help

Login blocked now that .profile file has been edited changed for PATH...

I wanted to add a new path, so edited the .profile text that is stored (hidden file) in my home directory.
Since editing it and saving, logging out, I can't now log back in: my password is reognised but it takes me back to the log in.

I just wish to change the .profile back to how it was originally, but to do this I need access to the home directory of my administratory account.

How can I edit this?

I can still log in as guest.
I've a a bit of a play about in recovery mode, I can go into root, but I then can't find the .profile file which my edits in under /home.

I've found similar threads but none solve my problem.

Thanks

Setting manually the monitor / TV which is connected to Ubuntu 14.04

I just installed Ubuntu 14.04 on a new system (Intel NUC) which I want to use as a new media player and connected this via HDMI to my Harman Kardon and this connects to my 42 inch Panasonic TH-42PY70.
If I look at the display settings while having the TV on, I see that this is recognized as a 47 Inch Panasonic, but the resolution of 1920 x 1080 is OK.

The problem occurs when I did not use my amplifier / TV for a while and try to connect to this system by TeamViewer.
After first having no clue and being unable to connect to this system remotely I found that the issue is that the display / monitor settings are lost / cannot be found by the TeamViewer process and thus it is not opening a display for me ( it tries to connect, but never gives me a visual x environment).

Progress

In the bad old days there was DOS where I could type commands for hours while the computer chuckled and said I know what you want to do but you can’t make me do it.
Then a miracle, Point and Click, Plug and Play. (and the sport of Windows Bashing) I can use a computer !!!!!! Years pass and I try Ubuntu. Wonders, can’t install driver. I read the boards, download programs, type lines of hieroglyphics while the computer chuckles and says I know what you want to do but you can’t make me do it. Aaaahhhh, progress

root pwd for ubuntu 14.04

Just installed ubu 14.04, but don't know the root password - I'm trying to install tor

- I don't remember supplying any password on installation other that that for my login.

Also, I installed ubu on a machine running windows 7 pro, but windows boot option doesn't work. Although everything is double-backed up, I don't want to start from the beginning.

Any ideas?

Drive permissions

I just wiped my Windoze partition (it was an old and incomplete installation of Windoze) and formatted it ext4 (using GPartEd). However, when I attempted to use the drive, I found the permissions were set to Root Only.

Using Nautilus, I managed to move the files I wanted onto the drive. Now those files are locked. (Yes, I can use Nautilus to move them back... but that means I still do not have that extra drive space available to me.)

What did I do wrong? What could I do differently? How do I use this drive partition?

Getting Permissions

Can someone tell me how to get permissions. Or is it root permissions?

Thank you.

Anonymous Browsing

Is there a anonymous browser that works with Unbunt 13.10?

Thank you.

Booting from an internal 2nd drive

I downloaded a copy of Ubuntu 13.10 on a second internal empty drive.
The HP has a Pentium4 with plenty of ram. The problem begins with the fact
the 2006 computer is running 2003 xp pro OS & is not genuine so the media player does not work properly. I am trying to make a switch over and no longer use XP.
Like I said it was downloaded to a second drive and opened many files from the way
it came but I can't get it to boot up either in windows formatted D drive or changing the jumper settings on the second drive. All I get is a message it needs a boot file. I have successfully put the same OS version on another PC, so I am not sure if the problem stems from Windows media/sound/non genuine mess or if I needs some other driver...booting mechanism. My DVD Rom reads CDs (no sound) but I am not sure if it burns them. I bought a copy of 13.10 from a local computer store.

Help! I can't get Ubuntu to boot up on my Dell Windows computer!

I have a Dell Inspiron 3520 laptop with Windows 8 installed and have installed Ubuntu 13.10 Desktop AMD64. When I reboot it allows me to choose Ubuntu but will not load.

What can I do?

Thanks
