@technastic_tc I've been confronted with this same question at Stack Overflow. Questions about esoteric topics in programming can quickly go down the rabbithole, and it seems to be the consensus of the community to discuss these questions in real time in the chatroom instead of in Meta.
One advantage of asking questions about chat in chat over asking them in Meta is the generally faster turnaround time.
My brain is dead tonight. I cannot figure out for the life of me how to install the ata.4freebsd driver into my kernel so my RAID controller is seen in 20.04. Worked great in 18.04. :(

Q: Can not install samba client on Ubuntu 20.04

user654019I just upgrade my Ubuntu from 18.04 to 20.04. Now I lost my access to my NAS and I am trying to re-install it. I read several posts about the issue that others had when upgrading including the fact that the new samba, doesn't support SMB V 1.0 and how to fix it. I found that samba client is not i...

Never mind on my installing the driver into the Kernel. 2 times now, once with a clean install on my system and the other upgrade that I just performed last night, going to 20.04 it installed the 5.4.0-1025.gcp kernel that does not like my hardware and is missing all sorts of drivers. I don't know why it installed that Kernel on the clean install other than I might have selected the update software during the installation that might have had it download that GCP Kernel. Oh well!
Mystery solved....

Hey people. I've a small doubt..
This question:
Q: How to install a software on a USB stick to be used on another computer?

Paul De l'eauI want to install a software on a USB stick, to be used on another Linux computer. The second Linux computer doesn't have internet access. On Windows, I can simply install the software normally with the install wizard and when asked where to install it, install it on my usb stick and most of the ...

The above question doesn't have connection with Ubuntu particularly, but it's about Linux in general.
Does it come under the scope of Ask Ubuntu or Unix and Linux?

Q: problems with grub_install when installing ubuntu

N A McMahonI have been trying to install ubuntu 20.04 on some computers but when I try to install it from the liveUSB. The error I receive is "error grub-install /dev/nume0n/ failed".

Q: How to create a NAS in parallel with Ubuntu Server

CryoexnI currently have a pc that I built to be a home server for experimentation. It’s running Ubuntu Server. I have been interested in creating a NAS to upload movies and tv shows so my friends and I can watch them without a streaming service. My first attempt at this was to create a nfs and use Kodi ...

6:08 PM
@technastic_tc Is there a software or something built in Ubuntu that could allow me to do this?
U&L and AU has an overlap of topicality in shell scripting and Ubuntu (ofcourse). The question is perfectly on-topic on AU as well as U&L and even Super User.
Q: Are "not only Ubuntu-specific" questions on-topic?

kosI know this question has been asked and answered already here: How do we tell if a question belongs here, or rather at stackoverflow/superuser? However this topic came up recently again in a discussion in the comments of a question about sudo, where an user claimed the question be off-topic bec...

I've been having a really annoying time trying to install a 32-bit 8.04.4 LTS guest on a 64-bit 18.04.5 LTS host using KVM with virt-manager. After I create and start the VM, I get the initial menu just fine.
However, when I attempt to boot or install Ubuntu, it gives me the logo and a progress bar for a few minutes, and then just sits at a blinking cursor for all eternity. If I use Ctrl+Alt+F1 from this state, I get a PCI: PIIX3: Enabling Passive Release on 000:00:01.0, followed by a Loading, please wait... for all eternity. If I change the boot options to use text, then it just gives me the module startup messages and nothing else.
Note that this can't be a virtualization issue, since I've installed 20.04 on another VM with no issues.
Wait, what am I doing trying to ask here, I should probably create an actual question
7:46 PM
Dang it, the question would be off-topic due to the version being EOL
8:01 PM
Okay, turns out that 8.04 does not support SPICE, changing the display to VNC fixed it
@LegionMammal978 The problem youre facing is the Kernel version of 8.04 which is not really suited to run on modern day Hypervisors
8:48 PM
Q: Ubuntu 16.04 /etc/network/interfaces vs GUI locations

IDLacrosseplayerI can edit /etc/network/interfaces on Ubuntu 16.04 to manually set IP information. I can also use the lightdm/unity/GUI to set it via the "Network" application. I started with a headed/GUI build and set my network information. Now I am headless with systemctl disable lightdm. I need to make netwo...

@Videonauth Actually, it seems that it really was only the display issue; after I set it to VNC, it installs just fine, and the network adapter even works

Q: Plugging in a second monitor causing strange errors

Jake McClennyI have a laptop running 16.04 LTS (kernel 4.4.0-190-generic). I have a CableCreation USB-C to HDMI adapter that I'm using to try and plug the second monitor into (there is no HDMI port on the laptop). When I plug the monitor into the adapter, a whole mess of strange errors occur. The second monit...
