List admins (cc'd), please moderate/ban

He's spamming at least two Ubuntu lists. Thanks.

There was a question about preseeding 14.04.2 failing a while back

I've deleted that email but, IIRC, it was about a message that grub
wouldn't be installed.

There was a change in d-i whereby you have to set
"grub-pc/install_devices" and that's possibly the cause of the

eth namespace

There was a post recently about renaming a NIC eth0 with a dev rule.

I've just come across the following on the systemd/udev upstream
mailing list about the eth namespace:

I deleted the original email so I'm starting a new thread, with apologies.

Karl - grub2 and ext2/ext3/ext4

Created three Lucid installs on three different VBox disks and the
ext2, ext3, and ext4 filesystems all have the same amount of files in
/boot/grub, as expected and predicted.

root@karlext2:~# file -s /dev/sda1
/dev/sda1: Linux rev 1.0 ext2 filesystem data (mounted or unclean),
root@karlext2:~# ls /boot/grub | wc -w

root@karlext3:~# file -s /dev/sda1
/dev/sda1: Linux rev 1.0 ext3 filesystem data,
UUID=fb81e8ce-3909-426b-9cf0-b15914205c34 (needs journal recovery)
(large files)
root@karlext3:~# ls /boot/grub | wc -w

It's too bad that she isn't the u-u list admin too...

Follow-up to Samba PDC with roaming profiles thread of Nov/Dev 2009

As a follow-up and for the sake of some form of completion...

There was a thread in November or December 2009 where the OP had a
Samba PDC with roaming profiles.

Grub2, /boot, and lvm

Sorry Suvayu. Just remembered that you had asked for this info.

This is from the Grub 2 wiki:

lo: Disabled Privacy Extensions - new thread

I deleted your email by mistake and have had to start a new thread. Sorry!

On my 32-bit desktop install, "Disabled Privacy Extensions" appears
once during bootup. The message preceding "Disabled Privacy
Extensions" is "Registered protocol family 10" (ipv6). "Privacy
Extensions" is an ipv6 feature. I have no idea why you get it every 30
seconds though.

If you do not need ipv6, you can disable it by adding "ipv6.disable=1"
to the "GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX" line in "/etc/default/grub" and run


If you (Rakotomandimby) mean multicasting, Michael is right; the
ifconfig and /etc/network/interfaces setups are not relevant. Your
Ubuntu box is a multicasting client by default (avahi-daemon is
started up by default).
