REMOVE OLD KERNELS

I tend to be on #ubuntu to help others. Today, an interesting question
popped up, how do I clean the old linux images and headers?

Each linux image / header has its own dir in /usr/src/

Let's start, uname -a ... do NOT remove this image

Let's do a sudo apt-get update ... make sure it is clean

If, for some reason, you get errors, try sudo apt-get -f install (fix broken)

Let's get a list of all the images, dpkg -l | grep linux-image

I recently bought a new used Lenovo V570 laptop and wanted to dual boot it with windows 7 and Ubuntu 14.05. I found the drive had been erased with the exception of a recovery partition, but I was unable to access it.

Step 1:
I tried using the original format which was msdos and installed a fresh Windows 7. Unfortunately that failed. The Windows disk required GPT.

IRC stats for #ubuntu-us-az up

In the past it was possible to get stats on the #ubuntu-us-az IRC channel. That capability was lost a while ago. Its back now. Details are in this post.

For posterity's sake, here is a run-down of how it is done:

  • run irssi to listen to the chat channel. The sole reason for doing this is to get irssi's log file.
  • once a day, run pisg on the log files to create an html file with the stats. They are available under azloco.com/~ircstats.

irssi setup steps:

The configuration file for irssi is found in ~/.irssi/config. It was modified as follows:
