16.04 update/dist-upgrade

Hi All

After having hugep[1] problems following an attempt to get my old stable 16.04
system to hwe, I made a complete (Duel boot with Win7) fresh install from a
16.04.3 USB, the tried to run

~$ sudo update -y && sudo dist-upgrade

all went smoothly, but once I re-booted I was back to the previous unuseable
situation [1]

so I had to do a fresh install again (just Ubuntu side this time) again from my
16.04.3 media, I decided that untill I had more info I would not
update / dist-upgrade, thinking that I may be at end of road, if cant
update/dist-upgrade?

meanwhile I downloaded the lat

till boot finishes "44mins 33 secs / no limit", is this a endless loop?

I made the error of tying the hwe kernel on 16.04.3 it was at 4.4.09 (iirc)

how to make sure bridge interface is up with netplan after reboot

Hello,

I am using Ubuntu 17.10 and therefore Netplan which I have configured a bridge for a specific network interface for my Xen virtual machines. Unfortunately when I reboot the server that bridge interface is in state DOWN so that I have to manually set it up using "ip link set xenbr1 up" command.

device-mapper: core: unable to allocate device, out of memory

Hi,

On a fresh install of Ubuntu 17.10 which I am using as a Xen hypervisor to host virtual machines I encountered a problem where I can't create any LVM2 logical volumes anymore as it seems to strangely run out of memory.

On my Xen hypervisor I have assigned 2 GB of memory a pinned 2 CPU cores reserved for the hypervisor and have currently nothing running, not even a VM.

Create "Live USB" withinn Ububntu

Hi All

I would like to find a (preferably GUI) tool to create a "Live USB" with
persistance from Ubuntu, I have so far used (mainly)

"123 Universial USB Installer" or "Rufus"

Boh had minor probs, 123 of late failed "IF" the internal formating function
was used but would work if USB was pre-formated "outside" of 123, persistance
was never a problem, but the last few versions have not even made a bootable
Live USB (with or without Persistance)

Rufus has always worked fine but does not have persistance feature

so I tried YUMI Multiboot, has persistance but again cant seem to make a
boo

Grub consol "not seeing hd" partitions

Hi All

I have a query re Grub consol, I'm trying to prepare an erxternal USB for an
(EFI) Mac, to do so requires mounting the installed USB from the grub consol
(of a liveUSB)

1) I can't get to the grub consol of the live USB, shift brings the choose
language menu and "C" does nothing

2) So I installed the same version on a lappy top as the only system and can
get to grub from there (Shift then "C") but then grub can only see the disk
(HD1) not the partitions (HD1, gpt1), (HD1,gpt2) etc

3) If I let either installed system or LiveUSB run up I can then see the
partitions on sdb (sdb1,
